Sri Lankan-born fitness model Dhashi Perera Bartholomeusz with her fitness awards in Canada.

Sri Lankan-born fitness model Dhashi Perera Bartholomeusz won two international awards recently in Canada. She bagged second place Fitness Model Masters and fifth place Fitness Model short category at IDFA (International Drug Free Athletes) World Championships and Pro Universe held in Mississauga at the Meadowvale theatre.

Bartholomeusz, who showcased the Sri Lankan flag after her wins, studied at St. Lawrence’s Wellawatte and Ave Maria Convent Negombo before migrating to Canada in 1989 at the age of16 with her parents Cecil and Savitri Perera and two siblings Niluka and Dilan. She was proud of her Sri Lankan heritage, but she seized the opportunity to break down stereotypes against fitness models in the South Asian community.
