Dina Al-Sabah - IFBB Figure Pro and IFBB Bikini Pro
IFBB Champion - Dina Al-Sabah
IFBB Champion and fitness model Dina Al Sabah was born Dina Ali Fahad Al-Salim Al-Sabah on February 28th, 1974 in Beirut, Lebanon.
She is of Kuwaiti, Syrian, and Turkish descent and is a member of the Al-Sabah family, and her grandfather was the son of the ninth sheik of Kuwait, Salim Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah.
She is the first (and so far only) female Arab athlete to achieve IFBB pro card status as of 2006.
Dina is not only beautiful, but a very intelligent lady. She is fluent in English, Spanish, French, and Arabic. She has a B.S. in electrical engineering, M.S. in telecommunications and computers, and an MBA!
She has encountered criticism for her decision to compete and model from some people in the conservative Arab community. But she has also received praise from Arab men and women for the same decision, and her many successes.
Dina has a whole list of contest victories, among them, winning the Monica Brant Fitness Classic (2001), first place at the Jan Tana Pro Figure (2003), first place in the Tall and Overall categories at the NPC NorthEast Figure Classic (2002), first place in the Tall and Overall categories at the NPC Debbie Kruck Figure Classic (2002), first place in the Tall and Overall categories at the Bev Francis Atlantic States Figure Championship (2002) and many others.
As a fitness model, Dina has appeared in Oxygen, Ironman, American Curves, Muscle and Fitness, Muscle Mag International and Flex.
All this from a lady that decided to join a gym as a hobby!
Dina returned competition in 2010 in a big way, even taking part in the Inaugural Bikini Olympia in 2010.
Dina was one of the first (maybe the first) women to compete in Fitness and Bikini.
