Be a sport, enter showgirl quest

WHILE she may have stepped out of her comfort zone of sporty gear and sneakers, one Warwick lass is sure to be smiling all the way in her new Warwick Showgirl attire.

Jess O’Brien had been toying with the idea of entering the Warwick Showgirl competition for the past three years, but this year something made her shake the “girly” vision.

“I’ve been talking to a lot of people and it’s not really a ‘girly girly’-type of competition,” the 21-year-old said.

“I want to let everyone know that anyone can have a go. I love sport and I’m not the typical girly girl, but here I am.”

The self-titled “shy” young woman wanted to enter the competition to gain self-confidence, but there was no hint of timidity as her face lit up about sport.

“I love netball, athletics (shot-put), touch and have just started volleyball,” she said.

The laid-back and approachable Miss O’Brien’s sponsors are John and Judy Maher.
