Air Force steals
the show at ADF
AIR Force bodybuilders proved once again
they are a force to be reckoned with when they
took out the major placings in the recent annual
ADF natural physique titles.
The event, now in its 12th year, was held at
HMAS Cerberus in Victoria on September 16,
and Air Force competitors walked away with the
men and women's championships.
Twenty-four competitors (12 men and 12
women) turned out for the event, which was
judged by officials from the International Natural
Bodybuilding Association (INBA).
Mother and daughter combination SQNLDR
Kay Wiseman and CPL Angela Wiseman missed
out on making it a double; however SQNLDR
Wiseman won the Women's Senior class.
Air Force reservist CPL Jane Watts won
the Women's Medium class and CPL Monique
Rademaker won the Women's Tall class.
The three women, joined by Women's Short
class winner Shilpa Dahal, then backed up for the
Cerberus Women's Champion title. Hard training
and rigid dieting stood them in good stead and
the results were close; but at the end there can be
only one, and CPL Watts took the championship
A desire to get out of her comfort zone and
test herself, coupled with the memory of a poster
advertising Cerberus four years ago and a friend's
suggestion she have a go, put CPL Watts on the
path to the championship just four months ago.
She attended a body sculpting gymnasium
and they put her on a special diet and cardio and
"I dared not move from it," CPL Watts said.
She trained for two hours each day, six days a
She said the gym was very supportive and her
trainer and the head coach had gone to Cerberus
to watch her perform.
She was pleased and surprised to win the
Medium class and couldn't believe that she had
won the championship.
"I wasn't expecting it, as it was my first com-
petition. I just went in to see what it was all about.
"It was a very strong and professional field.
The mother and daughter (SQNLDR and CPL
Wiseman) looked unbelievable. I recognised them
from AIR FORCE News ... I thought they would
win each time I went against them."
