Skip to comments.Who says a nice Jewish girl can't be a bodybuilder?

If you imagined the typical Jewish physique, bodybuilder is probably not what would come to mind. In pop culture, Jews are skinny and bespectacled like Woody Allen, or chubby and unshaven like Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill. Sometimes the rare tough and rugged Israeli shows up, fighting terror and being macho. But big, buff and tan thats something you rarely see. So how did a nice Jewish girl end up becoming a champion in the sport of hulking supermen like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Ronnie Coleman?
In Erin Sterns case, it all started with three centimeters.
Three centimeters is not a long distance to travel. Its barely more than an inch. Take one footstep and youd blow right by it. But for Stern, the three centimeters she couldnt travel changed her life forever.
A Junior All-American at the University of Florida, Stern had been competing in events like the pentathlon and heptathlon since high school. Her high-jump numbers were good enough that she set her sights on the Beijing Olympics. All that stood between her and the team trials were a few short centimeters. She kicked her training into overdrive, and her numbers improved, but she was falling just shy of what she needed.
Im a little short for a high-jumper, says the statuesque 5-foot-8 Stern, chuckling. I gave it my all, but I couldnt make the last three centimeters.
Dejected, Stern was forced to give up on Olympic high jumping.
I was extremely bummed, she said.

ARRRGH - For your sins go to people of walmart and look at the women there.
LOL I honestly am not sure if you’re serious or not!
Those things could hold enough C-4 to level six city blocks.
Simona Halep couldn’t get “around” to hit her overheads... she kept getting slapped in the face and knocked out.
Yeah, I like that sort of look.
You misspelled “voluminous”.
That must have been taken after the BP gulf spill. Shes got oil covering her cankle.
She also played the foster-mom in “T2” and one of the murdered cops (the one in the exploding pool) in “Lethal Weapon 2”.
What’s that thing behind her. Is she preparing to “time jump” through the stargate.
FYI..Erin has her own website..just google it..
LOL Perhaps the camera adds weight to her, (and that tattoo on her right leg is the coup de grâce)
Rosie O'donnell is a woman? who knew? I kind of classify Rosie O with farm animals on the scale of attractiveness.
Corollary: Who says a nice Jewish girl can’t kick your a** if you get fresh?
Also in “Titanic” she had a minor role as the (very) Irish mom, in steerage, who along with her two young kids failed to get off in time. We last saw that character reading a bedtime story to her kids as the boat foundered, hoping that they would die without anguish. Very sad moment.

There’s actually a pretty good story to go along with the pictures if anyone is interested. (I know, I know, and I read Playboy for the articles too . . . . )
