CHIPPENHAM mother of three, Clare Kehoe, 39, has won an national competition on body fitness.

The United Kingdom Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation (UKBFF) held on March 30, at the Bedwort Civic Hall, Warwickshire.

Winners from the show can progress to the Arnold Classic Europe in Spain and other major fitness events, such as the European and World Championships.

Clare is mother of Madison 12, Evan 10, and Ava who is seven months old.

Her partner Stuart said Clare has always maintained her fitness level, but as she is a qualified personal trainer she followed her own fitness program and diet.

In her Masters Bodyfitness category Clare had to fight off the challenge of Leanne Dix to take home the winners medal.

The organisers said: "Few competitors trained harder for this competition than masters bodyfitness duo Clare Kehoe and Leanne Dix.

"Both women turned up in outstanding shape and it was difficult to separate them. Clare had a tiny waist that helped her physique flow."
