2015 IFBB Omaha Pro Competitor Lists & Show Preview

2015 Omaha Pro
The 2015 IFBB Omaha Pro competition will feature Women’s Bodybuilding, Figure and Physique. On the men’s side of things the show will play host to the 212 Bodybuilding division. There will also be a star studded guest appearance line up with 8x Olympia champions, Adela Garcia and Lee Haney in attendance. The Pro show will be held in conjunction with a national qualifying NPC event in Omaha, Nebraska on May 30, 2015.

The writing is on the wall when it comes to Women’s Bodybuilding on the amateur and pro level. It’s hanging on by a thread and the competitors are doing little to help it from becoming extinct. In one of only a few pro shows that feature Women’s Bodybuilding the field is less than ten. Strangely the Women’s Physique division has a fairly small turn out as well. It could be because there are three pro shows on the same day and it’s inevitable that not every show will draw a huge turn out. No offense to the folks of Omaha but when you have a chance to head to Puerto Rico to compete, chances are you’re going to choose that over Nebraska. It also doesn’t help that this show is on the same day as Denver’s Mile High Pro which essentially draws from the same pool of people. You can’t help but wonder if the shows weren’t on the same day if there would be a better turn out. The Men’s 212 bodybuilding turn out has been dismal all year and no offense to those who entered but this line up is sight for sore eyes. When only five guys enter you know things need to be looked at but that’s a topic for another day.

It certainly isn’t from lack of promotion as Jack Titone promotes the hell out of his shows online and in the area. The event is always well run and the venue is top notch. The Figure pro division will be well represented and will be the division to watch this weekend in Omaha.

In the dismal Women’s Bodybuilding lineup it will be Monique Jones and everyone else. The only way Monique doesn’t win is if she comes in out of shape. She’ll have the best lines and best back in the show but hasn’t been consistent with her conditioning. Even an 80% Monique could walk away with the win.

The Women’s Physique competition has a variety of physiques and who knows how this one will play out. Leonie Rose has been at the top before but how will she match up to the rest of the women in this lineup. You’d be a fool to bet on how the top five of this one plays out.

#UPDATE# Gen Strobo will be competing in Puerto Rico so the field is wide open in Omaha.
The Figure division drew the biggest turn out and the judges will have their hands full with this line up. The physique vary dramatically in the line up but if you’re gambling on who will come out on top you have to go with veteran Genn Strobo. Strobo has been a top competitor at the Olympia and will be the one to beat in this line up. Look for Shalako Bradberry, Julie Mayer, Chaya Boone and Tamara Sedlack to be contenders. Krista Dunn could also be in the mix but you never know where she’ll end up. Some shows she’s in the top callouts and the next week she’s out of the top ten.

It’s Tricky Jackson, Darron Glenn and everyone else. A men’s physique competitor with a decent set of legs could be a contender in this lineup. Darron has yet to nail his conditioning and Tricky is almost always on his A-game. I’d go with Tricky on this one.
