TURNING UP THE HEAT AT MT HOTHAM FOCUS ON SNOWSPORTS: CENTRE PAGES
BODYBUILDING champion SQN-
LDR Kay Wiseman admits she will feel
a bit odd at the Darwin Entertainment
Centre on October 2.
SQNLDR Wiseman, pictured right,
is the organiser of the International
Natural Bodybuilding Association
(INBA) Northern Territory and
Combined Services Natural Physique
titles -- and as much as she would
like to compete herself, she's almost
resigned to having to sit this one out.
"I imagine it will be hard to
watch others on stage and not be up
there with them," SQNLDR Wiseman
said. "It will be the first time I will
have attended a comp and not compet-
ed, but I am sure I will have my hands
full with the organising."
Even more frustrating for
SQNLDR Wiseman is the fact that by
that time she will be in full training.
The weekend after the Darwin
event, she plans to go to Melbourne to
compete in the nationals. On October
22 and 23, she plans to be in Brisbane
for Natural Universe.
And then comes the big one. She
has already booked her flights to com-
pete in the Natural Olympia in Reno,
Nevada, US, from November 10 to 13.

With one eye on Reno, it's a new viewpoint
After a rain-soaked trial match in Canberra on August 17, six Air Force
players have made the cut for a squad of 35 Australian Services Rugby
Union players training for the International Defence Rugby Competition
in Australia and New Zealand in October. Plus, we have two reserve
players, the team manager and a physiotherapist.
THE big, strong prop his teammates
call Shrek did not purposely come to
Canberra trying to hide his identity.
CPL Richard Falkenmire, of 37SQN at
RAAF Base Richmond, is a bit of a main-
stay in the forward pack in Air Force and
ADF rugby union circles.
Often he shaves his head for the big
occasions which makes him more, well,
But when CPL Falkenmire fronted
up for the probables v possibles trial in
Canberra on August 17, he had a full
head of hair as LAC Bill Solomou's photo
Any donkeys out there should give
Shrek a break though, OK?
"It was time for a haircut but I just
didn't get it done before the trials," he
said.Besides: "It's been a bit cold in north-
west Sydney the past couple of months
so hair is a premium."
Don't fret though.
CPL Falkenmire is one of the Air
Force players who has made the squad
of 35 which now faces three trial match-
es in the next few weeks after which
eight more players will be jettisoned, and
he's getting serious.
"My head will be clean and looking
good for the competition in September."
