Athena Annis

Athena (Annis) an old fbb, one of the most beautiful women to compete in bodybuilding, with particularly good size and shape in her arms and legs.

She was an easy winner of the lightweight class at the 1988 Jr. USA's,and probably would have won the overall, but unfortunately, she was disqualified for hitting an illegal moon pose.
It's hard to believe that she was really a lightweight - she looks much bigger, particularly in the arms and legs and her excellent biceps.

Athena poses in many different swimsuits and dresses, and again, we find in her the unreal combination of beauty and physique on one so young. For a long, long time, 'Athena' (Annis) was considered to have the best physique ever for a teenager,when she was 18 years old.
