PAWTUCKET â€“ Back on June 28, in Miami, the cityâ€™s own Stacie (Wildenhain) Venagro wanted desperately to capture the Miss Fitness Universe Pro Division crown, but admittedly felt disappointed when judges deemed Anca Bucur of Romania the champion.
She lost that competition by a final score of 147.65-145.35, or a mere total of 2.30 points.
So perturbed by her runner-up finish, the 28-year-old Venagro boosted her training regimen 10-fold â€“ or more.
â€śI knew I had to pick it up a couple of notches,â€ť she stated. â€śI wanted to be the best of the best because I compete in the pro division.â€ť
