Female Bodybuilder - Cathy LeFrancois

Cathy LeFrancois (formerly Priest) is a professional female bodybuilder and figure competitor from Canada.

Cathy LeFrancois was born on February 12, 1971 in Amqui, Quebec. She started figure skating at age six, but after two years she switched to speed skating, which she found more satisfying. She eventually won five medals in the Quebec provincial championships, an accomplishment that has not been equalled since. Cathy attended Notre-Dame-de-Foy in Quebec.

Cathy earned her pro card in 1995 when she won the overall title at the CBBF Canada Cup, and made her pro debut at the Jan Tana Classic later that year. At a height of 5'2", she competed exclusively as a lightweight once weight classes were introduced in pro shows in 2000. Her best achievement as a professional was winning the lightweight class at the 2003 Ms. International.

Cathy married bodybuilder Lee Priest on July 1, 2000; they separated in 2005. After 2003, she retired from bodybuilding and transitioned to figure competition, competing in her first figure contests in 2005. In late 2006, she switched back to bodybuilding.
