History will be made in Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend. The largest NPC competition EVER will take place on July 29 and 30th at Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall. As of a few days ago there were 632 registered competitors for this year’s event and look for that number to climb before show time. No, I don’t know how the divisions will break down and how many are in each. Promoter Jon Lindsay has always done a terrific job with this event and this year looks to be no different. If you don’t have your show tickets you better get them now because this will be a packed house!
New this year is the men and women’s physique divisions. The divisions continue to grow in numbers and the competition gets stronger with each event. Thanks to J.M. Manion for sharing this update… There will be THREE height classes for each division.
For Men’s & Women’s Physique we will have 3 height classes for each division.
A. Up to 5’4″
B. Over 5’4″ to 5’6″
C. Over 5’6″.
A. Up to 5’7″
B. Over 5’7″ to 5’10″
C. over 5’10″.
Class winners turn IFBB Pro in Men’s & Women’s Physique.
We’ll be there covering the event and as always providing coverage here and on twitter. We’ll be “guest tweeting” on @BBcomContests account throughout the show.
