My Cover Letter to the Arnold Amateur
Athletes from around the world submit their applications to compete and literally thousands attend the event. For most events you have to qualify (i.e. – you have to have won a competition.)
But not the bikini division.
That’s open to anyone who has the brass ovaries to step on stage and be judged. Most local shows divide the contestants into age categories, with women aged 35+ in the Masters Division (that’s fancy for old chicks.) But this competition is just divided by height, not age, so if I did get in it would mean that I (mother of two, age 41) would most likely be competing against 23 year old super model types. (Who, you know, won competitions.)
Realizing I did not possess these qualifications (youth/award winning body) I went a different route. I wrote a cover letter. I guess it worked because…
I’m competing in the Arnold Amateur in 2 weeks!!!!
So the moral of the story is, get some brass ovaries and go for your dreams. Sometimes it actually works out.
