NEW YORK, March 19 (UPI) -- The returning champion of the U.S. Pole Dance Federation competition says she is ready to repeat her feat in New York.

Sarah Cretul, 22, a Brighton Beach, Fla., native who recently relocated to Redlands, Calif., crowned Miss Trixter at last year's event, said she has been preparing for the second annual contest Friday at the Symphony Space Theater for months, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Friday.

"I've been working on my routine all year," said Cretul, who dances at the Hustler club in Redlands. "I think I'm ready."

The winner of the national competition in New York will receive $5,000 and a trip to Australia to participate in October's Miss Pole Dance Australia event in Sydney. Organizers said a tape of the winner's performance will also be sent to the producers of "America's Got Talent" for consideration.
