Singapore's female national bodybuilders enjoyed a successful campaign at the recently concluded World Body Building & Physique Sports Championships.

In the women's athletic physique over-165cm category, Rinn Farina finished top of the podium ahead of Virginie Delurgre of New Caledonia and Nagy Bettina of Hungary. Meanwhile, compatriot Sue Suharni also bagged gold in the women's bodybuilding event.

This was the first time that the Republic had captured gold medals in the annual competition, with the sixth edition held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai. The three-day event, which ended on Tuesday, attracted over 400 international athletes competing in 35 categories for both men and women.

Singapore's contingent consisted of four athletes, and was led by World Bodybuilding and Physique Sports Association Singapore president Dennis Tew, who was formerly a national bodybuilding coach from 2004 to 2007.
