Christine Envall Competitions and Championships History
Of all female bodybuilders, Christine Envall is perhaps the only one with a career that spans more than two decades. Her star-studded journey in bodybuilding dates back in 1991 when she first took part in the NPC-A/IFBB Bendigo City, Bendigo Championships. Her debut participation rewarded her with a 3rd place position.
Between 1991 and 1995, Christine Envall participated in six NABBA Australasian Championships as an amateur bodybuilder. Her elevation to pro status did not happen until after 1995.
Between 1996 and 2001, Christine focused most of her energy in trying out for various NABBA World Championships, held in various parts of the world including Melbourne, Canberra, Spain and New Zealand.
Her entrance to the IFBB league of sportspeople finally came through in 2001 when she competed in the IFBB Jan Tana ClassicLynchburg, Virginia, USA Championships. As she came to realize later, the game was a little tighter in the new league. This meeting saw her placed a distant 6th in that year’s rankings.
Her greatest breakthrough in the IFBB league was in the following year during the 2002 IFBB South West Pro CupArlington, Texas-USA, where she clinched the 3rd best overall title in the female heavyweight category.
Since then, she has taken part in a number of IFBB competitions which have been the highlight of her rich seasoned career.
She participated in the 2015 Omaha Pro IFBB: she was placed in the 3rd position.
She took part in the 2014 Olympia Weekend IFBB: she was placed at a distant 11th position.

Like most bodybuilders, Christine Envall’s career has been marked with it’s fair share of controversy. For example in 1995 during the NPCA/IFBB Australian Nationals, she was awarded her IFBB pro status without being judged. Reason being that her physique didn’t warrant her to compete in the same category as amateur bodybuilders.
Additionally, in the same year during the NPC-A/IFBB Australasian Championships in Sydney she was ranked 3rd, simply because her very lean profile did not set a good example for other women.
Despite her very successful and public career, Christine Envall has managed to lead a very private life. Nevertheless, she is married to the co-founder of International Protein Troy Bremner. She was born in a family of three and has one sister Zoe Hauser and a brother Michael Envall.
