If you’ve been a visitor to this website the name Swann Cardot is a familiar one. I first interviewed the tiny dancer from France in November of 2011. She put together an impressive winning streak in the amateur NPC Figure ranks and had the looks to match the on-stage physique. Today Swann learned that she was granted IFBB Pro status from her native country of France. She earned IFBB Pro status with her impressive amateur competitions resume. Since she’s not a U.S. Citizen she wasn’t permitted to compete in NPC pro qualifiers.
Swann isn’t the first to successfully petition for a pro card from her native country. Bikini Olympia Champion, Nathalia Melo did it. Dina Al-Sabah did it years ago by cleaning house in Figure. Arnold bound Marcela Tribin petitioned successfully in her homeland of Columbia. Join me in congratulating Swann aka Frenchy in her announcement. Swann shared she was super excited with the news and still in a state of shock. She is looking at the New York Pro as her pro debut.

Last year around this time we shared “Follow Frenchy” as she headed into the Arnold Amateur. Check it out to learn more about her and her journey to last year’s Arnold Amateur competition. Swann is a great example of never giving up on a goal, staying focused and determined.
