Nicole is a South African Figure Champion, and recieved her pro card in 2008. The 5’6″ pro is actually a resident of California, and works as a personal trainer and massage therapist for a businessman in Los Angeles. She was competing in the NPC and traveled back to South Africa to compete at the nationals to receive her pro card. I’m not sure about this, but I have followed figure since it began and have never known of a pro from South Africa, and furious googling turned up nothing, so she may very well be the first South African figure pro (?). She has yet to make her pro debut, check out Nicole’s website or her myspace page for more on her.
