Queensland's body building granny is flexing to the top

OUR golden gran Deb Brown is flexing her way to the top and she won't let anything stop her.

The Gladstone body builder competed in the INBA championships in Brisbane over the weekend, taking home second and third in two categories.

Mrs Brown said she was the fittest she's ever been and was honoured to get the chance to compete with other athletes.

"I won the second in the Grand Masters Figure and third in Grand Masters Physique," Mrs Brown said.

"They were phenomenal competitors, even in the mature divisions.

"It is an honour to be able to compete with them."
