Bodybuilder with Down Syndrome competes in Kentucky statewide championship

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A bodybuilder with Down Syndrome showed off months of hard work and dedication on stage Saturday.

Collin Clarke, 22, competed at the Kentucky Muscle Bodybuilding Championship in Louisville and serves as an inspiration to many.

A year ago, Clarke was out of shape and working the desk at Bob's Gym in Evansville. 

That's when he became friends with a personal trainer. The two began training and started a strict diet. 

Now after all their hard work, the two are a little emotional. 

I might break down like a little ... but I can't really express it," Clarke said. "Hopefully I can try to keep it in, but it's going to be hard to do."

Clark lost a total of 60 pounds for the competition.
