Volume 5 Issue 6 of Australian Natural Bodz Magazine features two incredible athletes whose images were captured at the Natural Bodz Media Day at the 2013 ANB Asia Pacific Championships held in June on Queensland’s Gold Coast. The stunning Brazilian born Ellen Lai Costa traveled all the way from her current residence in Hong Kong to take part in the show where she placed 2nd in the Open Model Tall Class.
