Gluteus to the max

SISTERS Ashlea, 20, Courtney, 18, and Jessica Gilfillan, 16 - braved the chilling wind on Friday to reveal the secrets of having an exquisite derriere.

“You exercise it,” said Courtney.

“We are athletes and the amount of training we do and our diet certainly helps.”

Courtney said the muscles which formed our bottoms, the gluteus maximus, were powerful muscles which needed specialist exercises.

“They are functional muscles and not just something to put in a swim suit.”

The sisters, all of The Channon, are now training for the National cross country titles in Geelong, Victoria, in August, and hope to qualify for an Australian team.

Their dream is to one day make the Australian Olympic team as a 'sister act'.

As well as training everyday the sisters also model with Lismore's Gilchrist Casting and Talent Management.

And these ravishing rears will put The Channon on the map because they are now part of the annual international Show Me Your Sloggi competition which attracted more than 30,000 contestants from around the world and more than six million visitors to its website.

Ten Australian finalists will participate in a pageant in Sydney this October.

The winner from each of the 31 participating countries will be flown to Paris to compete at the grand final in November.

And the fellas are included, with the sisters agreeing a bloke's butt looks good in jeans.

“In jeans you can really tell,” Ashlea said.
