Two-time Figure Olympia champion retires

October 2, 2009


She captured the very first pro figure contest in history, the 2003 Figure International and went on to win a total of 12 shows – including two Figure Olympia’s – in her seven year pro career. But now, 37 year-old Jenny Lynn has decided to call it a day. “I think they’re looking for fresh faces and new blood,” Lynn said after placing seventh at the 2009 Figure Olympia, her lowest ever in the sport’s premier event. “Figure is ready for the next generation of athletes.”

Lynn, said she will continue to be active in the industry, writing e-books, providing online workout programs and helping athletes prep for shows. Asked what she would like to be remembered for, Lynn said, “I want people to say that I was a humble, kind champion.”
