I’m very disappointed to announce that I won’t be able to participate at the Arnold festival this year due an old back injurie that came back last week while practising routine. Fitness is a hard sport for the body and we all go trow the same things. I had a tuff week last week being on intense treatments and medicine to get rid of the pain but my body seem to need a brake to heal and recover completely. I will take the time my body needs to get back stronger for the OLYMPIA.

Would like to thanks my team Behind me who support and believe in me my coreographer Brigitte Korak, my trainer Kim Kim Oddo, my main sponser HTN, Véronique Pro Circuit , Arnold festival as well as my family, friends and fans.

We wish Myriam a speedy recovering and look forward to seeing her back on stage soon. See some of Myriam’s contest photos and history here.
