Diva Extravaganza: Strong is still sexy!

The phenomenal Claire Bowles wore her tiara with pride after she was crowned the Overall Winner at the Ms. Diva Extravaganza on Saturday.

The fourth edition of the female show, hosted by the Physical Culture Association South Africa at the Durbanville High School Auditorium in Cape Town on Saturday, 29 July, saw 63 entries across all the divisions. In the end it was the toned physique of Claire Bowles that captured the attention of the judges and the audience. She made a clean sweep of the Fitness Bikini U/1.63m category, Theme Round, Ladies Fitness and Evening Wear up to 1.63m categories, bagging titles for Overall Evening Wear and Overall Fitness sections.

A determined Ashley Harding-Male was crowned the winner of the Overall Beach Bikini category after facing one of the toughest line-ups in the competition.

The classy Cayleen Lockey walked away with the honours in the Beach Bikini U/1.63m division with Melissa Jansen van Nieuwenhuizen securing silver and Rachelle Havenga bronze.

Strutting around and showing plenty of feminine curves the competitors on Saturday proved that strong is definitely still sexy!
