‘It’s been a rough trot!’ Convicted drug trafficker Schapelle Corby is declared the ‘winner’ of the #10YearChallenge – as social media goes into a meltdown over her Bali prison throwback photo

The #10YearChallenge has been sweeping across the Internet over the past week.

And with thousands of Australians jumping on the bandwagon, it seems the country has finally declared its own ‘winner’. 

On Wednesday, convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby, 40, shared a photo to Instagram of herself in Bali’s Kerobokan Prison in the mid 2000s. 

‘Been a rough trot. Better now. #10YearChallenge,’ she wrote in the caption.

In the decade-old photo, Schapelle is seen staring at the camera from behind bars with a forlorn look upon her face. 

She contrasted the somber image with a side-by-side of a more recent picture, which shows her cavorting on a sunny beach and relishing in her freedom. 

The Gold Coast-based beautician was released from prison in 2014 after serving almost ten years in jail for attempting to smuggle 4.2 kilograms of marijuana into Bali.

While Schapelle may have ‘won’ the #10YearChallenge, American Instagram users are asserting that Caitlyn Jenner has claimed victory with her post.

On Tuesday, the 69-year-old shared an image from 2009 – years before she underwent her gender reassignment surgery. 

Caitlyn then juxtaposed the throwback photo with a contemporary picture, which shows her sporting a confident smile. 

‘Now THAT is a #10YearChallenge Be authentic to yourself,’ she captioned.
