She is a renowned fitness trainer, two-time Ms Zimbabwe fitness figure champion, Ms Musclemania and, about a month ago, won the Ms International and Ms Universe accolades in Italy.

Sinclair beat several illustrious rivals to the coveted award. Notable sports people such as Charles Manyuchi the boxer, Kyle Hinde, a rower, and Kirsty Coventry.

Almost in tears as she spoke after being conferred the award, Costa-Sinclair said that she owed her success to her family, friends and Zimbabweans who had believed in her through a challenging career. She also thanked the sporting fraternity in Zimbabwe for the hard work they have put into sports in Zimbabwe.
