Vickie Newton - An "Ugly Duckling*" In Fitness
What on earth makes Vickie Newton think she belongs in fitness? She claims she hates having so much muscle and does endless cardio trying o get rid of it. So her muscular physique is not Vickie at her best - it's what was left after she had done all she could to lean down and lose muscle mass! Imagine if she train to gain muscle rather than lose it! What a bodybuilder she's make.
What makes a potential champion like this hate the natural level of development of her own body? Propaganda she's heard putting down the sport of bodybuilding for women from various quarters, including the physique federations? Comments from friends or family? Or, more commonly, negative input from boy friends. Or perhaps just natural insecurity.
In any event, it's her loss and that of the sport of bodybuilding. But it's clear she has no future in fitness looking so muscular. But give her credit, look out of place as she did, nontheless doing a routine that involved no tumbling she still managed to place 4th in the round, beating out a number of highly trained gymnasts.note: Don't adjust your glasses...the photos that seem blurry are.
*For those who don't remember the story, it concerns a baby duck that was shunned by the other ducks because he was thought too ugly. But eventually another flock of birds landed on the lake and he immediately recognized that they all looked just like him.They were swans and it turned out he had somehow had gotten lost from his own flock and ended up with the ducks. Of course, ducks prefer ducks so they still thought he was ugly, but swans don't agree and welcomed him warmly into the flock. The moral of the story: Birds of a feather should flock together and sometimes when you don't fit in trying harder is not the answer.
