A Hoyland body- builder has stacked up the points to compete in a Las Vegas competition for the third year in a row.


Kizzy Vaines, 33, has been competing in events since May to earn a place at the Olympia show in America which is held from September 27 to 30.


Last weekend, Kizzy competed at an event in Florida finishing fourth, giving her enough points to enter the event, which Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger won six times in a row.


Kizzy, of Fearnley Road, will be taking part in the fitness category which is judged in two parts.


Her husband and coach Phil Vaines, 39, said the first part comprises a bikini round in which competitors are judged on their low body fat, lightly toned physique and their body shape.


They are also judged on their hair, make-up and bikini.


Kizzy will then perform a dance routine incorporating splits, high kicks and press-ups.


To make sure she is in peak condition, Kizzy is on a strict diet of turkey, sweet potato and broccoli.


Kizzy said she is looking forward to the event and has had to put in a lot hard work to earn a place.
