Two years ago she quit her job as an account manager to pursue a career in fitness, now 27-year-old Croatian Vlatka Dragić is set to compete at the World Beauty Fitness and Fashion competition in Las Vegas after being crowned the Australian bikini champion in Queensland earlier this year…
Dragić, who was born and grew up in Zagreb, moved with her family to live in Australia in 2000, and after obtaining a double degree in business marketing and human marketing in Melbourne, she landed a job as an account manager for various supermarket brands. Wanting to break free from the daily 9-5 grind in Melbourne, Dragić moved to Queensland to dedicate herself to a healthier lifestyle.
She has since released her own successful personal training business, written an ebook called the Fitness Model Bible, and is about to try to win a world title. Dragić will face 150 other professional models from around the world for the $30,000 prize money in the WBFF competition on 15-16 August after being crowned the Australian champion in April.
