Since you all are all so great and wonderful supporters, I feel it is necessary to keep you informed. I received word today from Linda Wood-Hoyte and the President of the NPC that Team USA will NOT be attending the Women's World Championships competition this year. It is greatly disappointing as I was looking forward to an experience of a lifetime, but completely understand they have our best interest at heart. Here's is the letter from the President. At this point, I will go back to the drawing board in anticipation of my IFBB Pro Fitness Debut.

RE: 2010 Women's World Championships
After discussing withseveral political officials and reading the enclosed information posted on theU.S. State Departments website, the NPC has decided that we will not be sendinga Team to compete in the Women's World Championships in Tlalnepantla, Mexico.
We realize that this isa disappointment however we feel it is unsafe for American citizens to travelto this region of the world at this time and will not jeopardize your safety.
