Contest History & Bio  

South American Fannie Josefina Barrios was born in Caracas, Venezuela on May 30, 1964. She was the Venezuelan champion in 1997 and 1998. She earned her pro card in 1998 when she won a contest called Absolute Center of the Americas in San Salvador.

Her professional debut was at the 1999 Jan Tana Classic. In 2000 she moved to Florida with her husband, Alex Ramirez, and her daughter, Johadynis. There, she worked as a personal trainer and chef in the Miami area. She was a two-time class winner at the Jan Tana Classic, winning the middleweight class in 2001 and the lightweight class in 2002. Her final contest was the 2005 New York Pro Championship on May 21, where she finished in third place.

On August 7, 2005, Fannie died of an apparent stroke. She had spent the previous day helping out backstage at the NPC Southern States contest in Fort Lauderdale, where her husband was competing. She will be greatly missed.
We had the pleasure of working with Fannie poolside for photos and video on the day after the 2002 Ms. Olympia where she placed third.
