Davana Medina is a professional figure competitor from the United States.[1] Medina is the most successful figure competitor in the short history of the sport, winning the first three Figure Olympia titles to date.[2][3]

Biography[edit]

Davana was born on January 28, 1974 in Ponce, Puerto Rico. She won her first figure competition, the NPC Bev Francis Atlantic States.

Davana turned professional after winning the first NPC Figure Nationals in 2001. However, there were no professional figure contests until 2003, so she was forced to take a year off from competition. She has been the most successful woman in figure competition, winning the first three Figure Olympias to date.[4] Davana competes at 5'7" and 130 pounds.[5][6]

After missing the 2006 IFBB Figure Olympia, Medina retired from the sport. On July 14, 2010 it was confirmed that Davana would be making a comeback to the competitive stage as a bikini competitor at the IFBB Europa Hartford Bikini Championships.[7]
