Fitness Competitor - Sharon Bruneau

Sharon Bruneau was born on February 1st, 1964 in Timmins, Ontario.
She is a professional Canadian female bodybuilder and fitness competitor.
Sharon, (who is a French-Canadian Métis) began her career as a fashion model, at which she was successful until she contracted a bad case of pneumonia, which caused her to lose a lot of weight.

Soon after her recovery Sharon began training with weights to regain the weight she needed to get back to modeling.
After achieving a pretty toned build, she started getting rejected at model agencies for being "over sized".
She then decided to give up on modeling and dedicate herself to bodybuilding.

Sharon became one of the most famous women in the sport, leading to frequent photo shoots and several covers for magazines like Muscle & Fitness and Flex.
She retired from bodybuilding competition after the 1994 Ms. Olympia contest, switching to fitness competition.
After placing 11th at the Fitness Olympia in 1995, she retired from competition completely.
Currently Sharon is pursuing an acting career, though she still models for fitness pictorials occasionally.
