Dawson Creek's Gibson second at Vancity Showdown, headed to nationals this week

Headed to TO.
Gibson with a second place.

Dévre Gibson is cutting calorie intake each day, with two cardio workouts and a third most days of the week. Goes that way when you are looking to get to the Ms. Olympia level of competition.

The Dawson Creek product is hovering around just over 1,000 calories a day.

“Prep is important for last weekend,” she says. Gibson finished second in Vancouver last weekend at the Vancity Showdown, setting her up for the national stage. The showdown is a a tested fitness, figure, physique, and bodybuilding show held in British Columbia.

“The goal was a top three finish.”

This week sees Gibson headed to Toronto for the 2022 Canadian National Pro Qualifier. Should she finish first overall – the Ms. Olympia stage is not far away.

Gibson, who started cutting weight in June to prep for these weeks, is the first winner of the Ryeley Palfy scholarship handed out by Gridiron Fitness in Dawson Creek this past summer.

“We started 16 weeks ago but the last three weeks step it up with increased cardio to 90 minutes 6 days a week, and workouts 5 days a week and slightly lower my intake each day.”
