Your love lifts me up: Don Akim, 43, and Rosanna Beckett, 33, from Loewstoft, Suffolk, picked up three trophies between them at the Miami Pro World Champions held in St Albans

Engaged couples are usually so neck-deep in wedding invitations, seating plans and bridesmaid dresses that they find it difficult to make time for hobbies they already have, let alone new ones.
But then you can tell simply by looking at them that Don Akim, 43, and Rosanna Beckett, 33, from Loewstoft, Suffolk, are no ordinary couple.

Ship worker Don said: 'The judges didn't even realise we were a couple - when we told them they were like "wow"'

Just four months ago, the betrothed pair began bodybuilding together, and they are now celebrating becoming the first ever couple to both win world championship honours at the same event, having picked up three trophies between them at the Miami Pro World Champions held in St Albans - beating more than 200 athletes to the awards.

In the four months leading up to the world champions, the duo spent 14 hours a week in their local gym.
Ship worker Don said: 'The judges didn't even realise we were a couple - when we told them they were like "wow".
'Rosanna went up first and I was over the moon when she won. I had to wait a nerve-racking few minutes before I was chosen, but I was thrilled.'
