The May 6, 2022 episode of Femme Flex Friday features world champions from around the world. Co-hosts Renda Murray and Whitney Jones both know a lot about winning the Olympias. Jones is actually the defending fitness Olympia champion. Their guests were the first men’s fitness Olympia champion Mark Anthony and defending bikini Olympia champion Jennifer Dolly, who also reached the top of their divisions.Anthony and Dolly are important in bodybuilding for another reason – they are first olympian couple.
Anthony and Dolly got married on February 22, 2022, and Dolly explained that the day meant a lot to them.
“If you see a triple number, it’s an angel number. That’s what it takes into account,” she explained. “When we met in Tampa, my competitor’s number was 222. His UPS mailbox number was 222 as well.”
Aside from that connection, both Mark Anthony and Dolly felt the alliance was doomed. They got married in Las Vegas, Nevada, which is also where they live. Anthony said getting married in their current city was the obvious choice.
“Outside our apartment, there was a chapel and we did see weddings going on there all day,” Anthony said. “It’s nostalgic. I said ‘Let’s get married downtown.'”
The newlyweds are planning a bigger wedding in the future, but for now, Dolly must start focusing on defending her Bikini Olympia title. Olympia 2022 will take place from December 16-18, but she doesn’t have to go very far. Two years after moving to Orlando, the game is back in Las Vegas. While the wedding bells may have been ringing in her ears, she now aims to be the champion in 2022. Her husband will also help her along the way.
“Mark really helped me. He really helped guide me. We did it together,” she explained. “It does vary based on where I am and where I need to improve.”
Dolly shared more about how she prepared for Olympia, and the couple shared more about their decision and how it affected their careers and relationships. Catch Femme Flex every week on Friday www.wingsoftstrength.net.
