Marina, a Personal Trainer from Southampton, is still a successful Bodybuilder even though she only took up Powerlifting 3 years ago.

She still combines the two sports, with the help of sponsor CNP but her powerlifting World title is her most incredible result to date.

Being both tiny and super strong, Marina inspires women around the world and she is determined to challenge stereotypes about women and weights as well as the limitations of age.
