Amanda Loy, 22, from Scottsdale, Arizona, is four feet tall and weighs 72 pounds. She entered her first bodybuilding competition at the weekend and won a trophy in the figure division for having good definition
‘It's pretty much like an average height body, shrunk down into a smaller package,’ she said, explaining her condition.
Dressed in her bikini and heels, Amanda looked just the other contestants in the bodybuilding event - except in miniature.
The 22-year-old nursing student from Scottsdale believes she may be the first little person to actively compete in the world of body building.
‘From my knowledge and Google's knowledge, I am the only female little person to ever complete in a show like this,’ she said.
Amanda now hopes to turn her passion into a profession and she and Beecher are currently exploring sponsorships to help her focus on body building full-time.
'It doesn't matter what you look like or who you are,' she said. 'If you want to be fit and be the best you can be, it just takes dedication.'
