2014 Figure Olympia – Find Out Who Qualified


2014 Figure Olympia
The 2014 Figure Olympia is quickly approaching and we now know who is qualified to compete in the upcoming event. The Tahoe Pro sent Julie Mayer to the Olympia via her win and finalized who would get in via the Olympia Point Series. It came down to the final show before we knew who made it in via points but now, we’re set.

Nicole Wilkins will be looking for her fourth Olympia title, something no other woman has done. Candice Keene has won two Arnold Figure International titles but has yet to add Olympia champ to her resume. We know Erin Stern is not competing this year. Heather Dees and Mallory Haldeman will also be opting out of the show despite qualifying. That leaves a huge opportunity for the women qualified to end up in the top five spots.

2014 IFBB Tahoe Pro Figure Results


Tahoe Pro Figure Results
The 2014 Tahoe Pro Figure competition was the final stop for the IFBB Pros looking to qualify for the Olympia. Thirteen women took the stage looking for the win but there could only be one. Win and you’re in the Figure Olympia. Finish in the top five and collect points towards an invite via the Olympia Point Series. Allison Frahn was the only competitor who had a lock on an Olympia spot but the remaining spots were up for grabs.

After prejudging it was apparent that Andrea Calhoun, Julie Mayer, Allison Frahn and Wendy Fortino were a lock for the top four but where would they finish? We never saw the fifth and sixth place finishers stand next to the top four and it was clear it would come down to these four women for the top spots. Fifth was significant as it helped determine the point total in the Olympia series.

Julie Mayer, Krista Dunn and Andrea Calhoun were all in a tie for 3-5 in the Point Series with Wendy Fortino in sixth. Julie Mayer was awarded first place and that took her out of the point series hunt. Coming in second was Wendy Fortino which earned her enough points to head to the Olympia. Third place went to Andrea Calhoun and locked in her spot for the Figure Olympia. Allison Frahn was already qualified and the fourth place finish earned her two more points but was it a risky move entering the show? It was definitely a roll of the dice. Win the show and you have momentum going into the Olympia but a fourth place finish definitely wasn’t what she had hoped for. She’ll have her work cut out for her to get in the top ten conversation come Olympia time. Rounding out the top five and earning a spot in the Olympia line up was Krista Dunn. She’s competed a number of times and has been up and down in her placings throughout the year. She can breathe a sigh of relief now that she’s qualified for the Olympia in Las Vegas.

2014 IFBB Tahoe Pro Figure Results (score is after the name)
1. Julie Mayer – 3
2. Wendy Fortino – 6
3. Andrea Calhoun – 10
4. Allison Frahn – 11

Next stop… the Figure Olympia. The IFBB Border States in October will be the next open event for the Figure pros.



2014 IFBB St. Louis Pro Bikini Results


st louis pro
The last opportunity to qualify for the Bikini Olympia went through St. Louis, Missouri on August 23rd. The final IFBB Pro Bikini in the competition calendar year (Olympia to Olympia) proved to be one of the more interesting ones simply based on the Point Series. Win and you’re in the Olympia Finish in the top 5 and collect points. The top five highest points at the end of the season are granted an invite to the Olympia.

Brittany Taylor and Justine Munro were compared side by side a number of times and the winner was in the Olympia and second place stay home. This was Justine’s best look to date but wasn’t quite sharp enough to hold off rookie Brittany Taylor. Brittany took top honors and in doing so punched her ticket to the Olympia. She was the 2014 Overall NPC Jr. Nationals Bikini Winner in June and this is her first pro win. Munro came up short in the point series and fans of the Canadian will have to wait another year as she will not be competing in this year’s Olympia. Coming in third was California’s Candice Conroy. The third place finish launched her into fourth place in the point series and she is officially in the big show. Fourth place went to Bianca Berry who come on strong in the final three shows after some time away from competition. She came up just short in the point series but will be one to watch in the shows after the Olympia. Definitely one who you could see on the Olympia stage in 2015. The fifth and final spot went to Noemi Olah. The placing earned her one point which ties her for the fifth and final point series spot with Nicola Weiterova.

Despite placing sixth in the show, Jessica Arevalo will head to the Olympia on points. A questionable move as to why she competed was she was already in the Olympia on points and the finish here does little for her momentum heading into the Olympia.

2014 IFBB St. Louis Pro Bikini Results (score behind the name)

2014 IFBB St. Louis Pro Bikini – Last Chance to Qualify


stl bikini

The 2014 IFBB St. Louis Pro Bikini is the last opportunity for the women in the pro bikini division to qualify for the Olympia. The Olympia is a week earlier this year and the St. Louis Pro moved up in the schedule as a result. The winner will automatically get in the Bikini Olympia and those finishing in the second through fifth places will earn points in the Olympia Point Series. The women with the five highest point totals get in the Olympia.

The magic number is 10 to get into the Olympia via points. A woman will need at least ten points to have a chance at qualifying. This show will be very interesting to watch as three women are currently tied with 10 points for the fifth and final spot. Candice Conroy is the only one of them currently on the list. If she places anywhere in the top five she’ll break the tie and bump Michelle Lewin and Nomei Olah out of the mix. Mathematically she’s the only one on the list with a chance to qualify via points. Everyone else will need a win to get in. Brittany Taylor is the one who could shake things up in this line-up and don’t be shocked if Candice and Brittany are being compared for the own here.

*Update – Jessica Arevalo, Justine Munro and Noemi Olah have been added to the lists which changes the game.*

2014 IFBB TAHOE PRO Figure – Last Chance to Qualify


tahoe-pro figure

The Tahoe Pro is the last chance for the women of the IFBB Pro Figure division to qualify for the 2014 Olympia. Currently, ten women are slated to in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. The winner will automatically punch their ticket to the big show and those finishing in 2-5th will collect points towards the Olympia Point Series.

It’s a tight race in the point series. Allison Frahn is leading the point series with fifteen. If she were to win this show everyone moves up in the point series. If she doesn’t win, she’ll still be in as 15 points are enough to qualify her for the Olympia. Second place Sasha Brown is in with 12 points as well. That leaves Krista Dunn, Andrea Calhoun, Julie Mayer are all tied for the remaining three spots with 10 points. Wendy Fortino is on the outside looking in but if she places fourth or higher she’ll be in with enough points.

Beckie Boddie and Bojana Vasiljevic are mathematically out of the top five points. They’ll need to win to get in. Same holds true for Jami DeBernard, Sarah Dominguez and Kartina Tarbox.

2014 IFBB Dallas Pro Results


2014 Dallas Pro Results

Another IFBB Pro show is in the books and we’re one weekend closer to the 50th Olympia in Las Vegas, Nevada. Today in Dallas, Texas the bikini pros were on stage in hopes of qualifying for the big show next month. Lacey DeLuca and Tawna Eubanks had the pressure off them as both were qualified for the Olympia. The rest of the field was looking for the win or a high enough finish to earn points in the Olympia Point Series. Only the top five earn points towards the series. The five competitors with the highest points after the last qualifying show receive a spot in the Olympia lineup. Ever year it’s tight race and comes down the final show to see who gets in. This year is no different. There’s only one pro show left for the bikini competitors to qualify and this was the final opportunity for the Men’s Physique competitors.

Tawna Eubanks won her second pro show in a row and this one has to be even a little sweeter in her own backyard of Dallas, Texas. The field was a bit more competitive here than her last showing and she carries some momentum into the Olympia next month.

2014 Olympia Lineups – Find Out Who Qualified


olympia lineups

The 2014 Olympia is quickly approaching and we’re beginning to see who will qualify for the big show in Las Vegas. Over the weekend, most of the fields were set. The Bikini, Men’s Physique and Figure still have a handful of shows remaining on the schedule to qualify but for the most part we know who will be qualified for the Olympia.

Keep in mind these lists are for those who qualified, it doesn’t mean they will actually compete. We know Erin Stern, Mallory Haldeman and Heather Dees are are officially out of the Figure lineup. A couple of top competitors in other divisions will not be competing but have asked not to be mentioned just yet as they haven’t made things “official”. Stay tuned on that front as it will definitely get people talking when their absence is announced.

There’s just one qualifying show to go in the Figure division (Tahoe Pro). It’s safe to call Allison Frahn and Sasha Brown qualified for the Olympia. There are a number of scenarios that could change the remaining lineup after the Tahoe Pro but here’s the leading contenders with a chance to qualify via the points series. The magic number is 10 anything less than that and there’s not chance to qualify via the points system. Three women have ten points and four have mathematical chances to get in with a top finish in Tahoe.

Allison Frahn, 15
Sasha Brown, 12

There are two IFBB Pro Bikini shows remaining on the schedule. The Dallas Pro and the St. Louis Pro will determine who is in the Bikini Olympia lineup. In order to make the Olympia via the point system a competitor needs at least 10 points. Anything less than ten and they are on the outside looking in. It’s a safe bet to call Jessica Arevalo and Dayna Maleton in the Olympia but not it’s not set in stone. Kelsie Clark, Nicola and Michelle Lewin are likely in but not a sure thing. A number of scenarios could play out given two remaining shows. There will be a clearer scenario after the Dallas Pro. This one could come down to the wire to see who gets in.

Leading the Olympia Point Series:
Jessica Arevalo, 17
Dayna Maleton, 14
Kelsie Clark, 12
Nicola Weiterova, 11
Michelle Lewin, 10

Noemi Olah, 9
Anna Virmajoki, 7
Candice Conroy, 6
Callie Bundy, 5

Men’s Physique Olympia Showdown
Mark Anthony Wingson
Jeremy Buendia
Matthew Acton
Sadik Hadzovic
Jason Poston
Tyler Anderson
Tory Woodward
Michael Anderson
German Pacheco
Arya Saffaie
Anton Antipov

There’s just one qualifying show to go in the Men’s Physique division (Dallas Pro). It’s safe to call the top two gentleman qualified for the Olympia. There are a number of scenarios that could change the remaining lineup after this weekend.

Leading the Olympia Point Series:
Jonathan Sebastian, 15
Xavisus Gayden, 12
Felipe Franco, 8
Jeff Seid, 7
Matt Christianer, 6
Sheridan Hause, 6

Results: 2014 IFBB Sacramento Golden State Championships


golden state results

Karin Hobbs doubled down and it paid off at the 2014 IFBB Golden State Championships held in Sacramento, California. Karin won not only the open Pro Women’s Physique competition but also the Master’s Pro Women’s Physique competition. The Boise resident was the unanimous winner on the scorecards and has a spot in the Olympia showdown next month in Vegas. Coming in second was Jillian Reville. Jillian returned to the stage for the first time since having heart surgery last year. Rounding out the top three was Colorado’s Heather Grace. Heather edged out Akane Nigro-Ismeal by one point. Finishing in fifth was Jennifer Robinson. Robinson is already qualified for the Olympia but will need to come in sharper if she has hopes for being a contender in the stacked Olympia lineup.

Another Olympia qualifying show is in the books and another competitor will head to Vegas for the big show. Stephanie Mahoe unanimously won the Bikini Pro portion of the Prestige Crystal Cup. The win was her first in the pro ranks. Stephanie was leading the Olympia Point Series heading into this show but the win secures her spot in the Olympia line up this September. Lacey DeLuca came in second and was already qualified for the Olympia. Noemi Olah finished in third, just two points behind Lacey. She collects points towards the Olympia but still sits on the outside of the top five points. Michelle Lewin finished in fourth and rounding out the top five was Dayna Maleton. One point separated Maleton and Lewin for fourth and fifth.

The women of the IFBB Pro Bikini division are back in competition this weekend at the 2014 IFBB Prestige Crystal Cup Pro. This is one of the few remaining shows for the women to qualify for the Bikini Olympia. The Men’s Physique Pro competitors will also be on stage along with a NPC competition. The show will take place this Saturday, July 19th in Boca Raton, Florida.

THE HARDBODY 411
Lacy DeLuca is the only woman currently in the lineup who is qualified for the Olympia. Stephanie Mahoe is the current leader in the Olympia Point Series with 19 points. A win here would lock in her spot in the Olympia lineup but anything in the top five would help her stay in the mix via the point series. Dayna Maleton is sitting in third place with 13 points and a top five finish would help her stay in the Olympia hunt. Currently, the magic number to get in via the point series is 11. The winner gets an automatic invite, something everyone on this list is shooting for and the top five will be competitive.

2014 IFBB Tournament of Champions Pro Figure Results


ifbb tournament of champions

Oh what a difference a year makes. Last year, Karin Grau was 13th at the Tournament of Champions Pro Figure, her IFBB pro debut. Since then, Karina has tried to move her way up in the Pro figure ranks. She kicked the 2014 season with a 14th place finish at the Figure International in Columbus, Ohio. She went on to crack the top ten with a ninth place finish at the Pittsburgh Pro. Karina has shown improvements to her physique since last year’s debut and they proved to be enough one year later. The 2014 Tournament of Champions victory marks her first IFBB pro win and earns her a ticket to the Figure Olympia. Karina is originally from Prague and achieved IFBB pro status by winning the 2013 Arnold Amateur Brazil.

Coming in second and moving her way up in the Olympia point series was Sasha Brown. Sasha had 8 points heading into this show and in fourth. Tonight’s second place finish puts her in second place with 12 points. There are just two pro shows remaining and while not a guarantee she does looked poised for an Olympia qualification via the point series.  Julie Mayer’s third place finish gave her three points towards the Olympia point series. This puts here in a three-way tie for third place in the Olympia Point Series. There are still two more pro Figure shows to go so anything could happen. Latorya Watts finished in fourth and picks up 2 points towards the Olympia Series. She moves up in the standings but still have an uphill battle to get in. Currently 10 is the magic number to get in via the point series and she has five. Jessica Canty rounds out the top five and snags one point towards her Series total.  She currently has four points and will have a tough time getting in via the points unless she finishes in the top spots in the final two Pro Figure shows before the Olympia.

Ones to watch in this line-up as they are in the hunt for a top five finish in the Olympia Point Series. The winner of this show will automatically qualify for the Figure Olympia held in September. The 2-5 finishers will collect points. Sasha Brown is currently in 4th place with 8 points. If she finishes in the top five it will definitely help earn her a spot in the Olympia. Right behind her and in this show is Julie Mayer. Julie is currently tied for 5th in the point series so anything in the top five would give her a bump in the Point standings. Canty, Bodie, Watts and Vasiljevic are currently sitting with three points each. If one of them can snag the second place spot they’ll be in the hunt. Anything below second and they’ll still be on the outside of the top five Point Series.

There could be more women added before Saturday’s event but as of now here’s the line-up.

Opportunity Knocks at The 2014 Figure Olympia


Figure Olympia

The 2014 Figure Olympia presents a huge opportunity for the women qualified and entering the event. This will be the 11th year the IFBB Pro Figure competition has been held during the Olympia Weekend. The final competitor list has yet to be finalized but with three shows to go it’s getting close. Three of the women who finished in last year’s top six will not be returning. Last month, Heather Dees announced she was sitting out this year’s event. Heather placed fourth at the 2012 and 2013 Figure Olympia.

Two-time Figure Olympia champion, Erin Stern made her official announcement regarding this year’s competition. She made the following post in conjunction with Oxygen magazine’s “exclusive announcement”.

“It’s official – I won’t be competing in the 2014 Figure Olympia. For the last 5 years, I’ve done upwards of 6 shows a year. I have always trained/prepped myself for shows, which can make it difficult to know when to take time off. But, I want to focus more on helping others achieve their goals, do more seminars, and finish my book. I’m also looking forward to just training! As we all know, quality improvements to the physique can’t be made overnight! The stage will be there next year Thank you….and train hard, y’all!!!”

In the Oxygen story Erin shared, “It’s not that I feel that my body won’t respond, it’s just that my bones ache!” Despite the aching bones Stern shared, “I’m toying with the idea of doing some powerlifting competitions.”

Erin had finished in the top six in each of her five Olympia appearances. Her first Olympia, in 2009 she finished in sixth and after that it was a battle between her and Nicole Wilkins for the top spot. The two went head to head with Erin winning two times and Nicole winning three.

Fitness Management Group (FMG), Mallory’s management has exclusively confirmed that Mallory Haldeman will be sitting out the Olympia. She’s finished in fifth place in 2012 and 2013. In 2012 she was awarded “rookie of the year” by Flex Magazine. Mallory skipped the Figure International the and struggled at the California’s Governor’s Cup earlier his year. She finished in sixth at the 2014 Governor’s Cup, the lowest finish of her pro figure career. FMG shared that she will look at competing later this Fall and hopes to be invited back to the 2015 Figure International.

It looks like this year’s competition could spark a new rivalry between three-time champ Nicole Wilkins and Candice Keene. Keene has yet to finish higher than third at the Olympia but you have to figure (like that unintentional pun?) this is her opportunity to move up and make a run for the top spot. Candice did beat Nicole at the 2013 New York Pro but that wasn’t the best version of Wilkins we’ve seen. Nicole was off at that show and bounced back to win her third Olympia title. If you’re gambling in Vegas this September the smart money is on the 2014 Figure Olympia title going to one of these two women.

No one is unbeatable and with half of last year’s top six sitting out, opportunity knocks for those who are qualified. If there were an Olympia Figure pecking order we could look to Ann Titone, Camala Rodriquez, Genn Strobo and Candice Lewis to be the most likely candidates to finish in the top spots. You can rule out Alicia Coates who will be competing in her first Olympia and the other women who have earned their spot in this year’s competition.

Nicole Wilkins
Candice Keene

2014 Olympia Qualification Series By The Numbers


olympia
The IFBB Pro League introduced the Olympia Qualification Series, a points-based system in 2012. The system was designed to help determine who would qualify for the Olympia in each of the IFBB Pro League divisions. The way it works is pretty simple. The winner of each contest is qualified for the Olympia and no points are rewarded. The competitors who finish in second through fifth place receive points for their placings. The points are accumulated throughout the year and after the final qualifying event, the five competitors with the most points are qualified to compete in the Olympia.

 

THE HARDBODY 411

Some divisions are a little more interesting to follow than others and in many cases will come down to the final show to determine who gets in or not. There are only a few shows remaining on the schedule before this year’s Olympia and there are a few divisions and competitors who are a lock for a qualification based on point totals and remaining shows. Let’s break each of the women’s division down by the numbers.

2014 FITNESS OLYMPIA
The following women are already qualified to compete. This doesn’t mean that each woman WILL compete, but rather they are QUALIFIED to compete.

QUALIFIED
Adela Garcia
Oksana Grishinaa
Tanji Johnson
Myriam Capes
Bethany Cisternino
Marta Aquiar
Fiona Harris

The Pro Fitness is pretty close to being determined. There’s just one pro show remaining on the schedule (Tampa Pro) for the women to qualify. The winner gets in which means we’ll likely see one more woman added by way of a victory. That is unless one of the above women already qualified competes and wins. I can’t see any of the women listed about entering the show simply because they’ll be focused on the Olympia. Mathematically four women are a lock for the Olympia based on their point totals.

Regiane Da Silva from Germany will take top honors in the point series with 18. No one can come close to knocking her out of a spot. She’s in. Next up is Danielle Ruban from Canada. She too is in after a second place finish at the Chicago Pro. While technically she could drop out of the second place spot she wouldn’t fall out of the top five. She’s a lock with 12 points. Currently sitting in third place with 9 points, Arizona’s Whitney Jones is in. She too could drop from the third place spot but not enough to be bumped out of the top five. Veteran Trish Warren is also mathematically in with 8 points. Only one person could drop her down in points but that would still give her a high enough total to be in the top five.

Amanda Hatfield is currently in the fifth, and final, spot but her five points aren’t a lock for a qualification. There’s a few scenarios that could play out where she gets bumped out of the top five or ties for fifth. Somkina Liudmila could snag a qualification if she places in the top three at the Tampa Pro, fourth would tie her with Amanda. Ryall Graber who was in last year’s Olympia is on the bubble with two points. She’ll need to win or get second to qualify. Third place would tie her with Hatfield, assuming Hatfield didn’t pick up any points in Tampa. The same scenario plays out for Kizzy Vaines as she sits with two points as well. Long shots but not impossible are Ashley Sebera, Vanda Hadarean and Tiffany Chandler, each with one point.

OLYMPIA POINT SERIES LEADERS:
Regiane Da Silva – 18
Danielle Ruban – 12
Whitney Jones – 9
Trish Warren – 8
Amanda Hatfield – 5
Somkina Liudmila – 3
Ryall Graber – 2
Kizzy Vaines – 2
Ashley Sebera – 1
Vanda Hadarean – 1
Tiffany Chandler – 1

2014 MS OLYMPIA
The following women are already qualified to compete. This doesn’t mean that each woman WILL compete, but rather they are QUALIFIED to compete.

QUALIFIED
Iris Kyle
Alina Popa
Debi Laszewski
Yaxeni Oriquen-Garcia
Brigita Brezovac
Simone Oliveira
Anne Freitas
Rita Bello

There’s one remaining opportunity for the female bodybuilders to qualify. The last show on the schedule before the Olympia is the Tampa Pro held on August 8-9, 2014. The point totals are too close to call a Point Series winner but mathematically Margie Martin and Christine Envall will both be in with six points. Even if they don’t collect any more points in Tampa, the six points will be enough to keep them in the top five. After that it’s a dog fight to make it in. Alana Shipp and Lisa Giesbrecht both have five points and while it should be enough to keep them in the top five, it’s not a guarantee. Virgina Sanchez is right on the bubble in the fifth spot with three points. Tonia Moore, Juanita Blaino are currently on the outside looking in with two points and Emery Miller has one point. Tampa will be one to watch to see who ends up in the top spots.

OLYMPIA POINT SERIES LEADERS:
Margie Martin – 6
Christine Envall – 6
Alana Shipp – 5
Lisa Giesbrecht – 5
Virginia Sanchez – 3
Tonia Moore – 2
Juanita Blaino – 2
Emery Miller – 1

There are three shows left for the IFBB Figure pros and there are too many scenarios that could play out. The Tournament of Champions, Tampa Pro and the Tahoe Pro are the three remaining qualifying shows. Allison Frahn has a comfortable lead but not a lock. She’ll likely be in the Olympia via points but look for her to compete in one of the remaining shows, likely the Tahoe Pro. Krista Dunn and Andrea Calhoun are in the top three with ten points each. They are in a good spot but again not a sure thing they will get in given the point totals.

OLYMPIA POINT SERIES LEADERS:
Allison Frahn – 15
Krista Dunn – 10
Andrea Calhoun – 10
Sasha Brown – 8

2014 BIKINI OLYMPIA
The following women are already qualified to compete. This doesn’t mean that each woman WILL compete, but rather they are QUALIFIED to compete.

QUALIFIED
Ashley Kaltwasser

Jenee Leger

There are five more qualifying events for the Pro Bikini division. That makes things far too complicated to call at this point. As we’ve seen the placings with bikini shows are anything but predictable. If the Olympia were next week we’d see Stephanie Mahoe, Jessica Arevalo, Dayna Maleton, Kelsie Clark & Nicola Weiterova in the show. If I was a gambler, I’d bet the top five changes from this. It will be tough for anyone to finish ahead of Stephanie Mahoe and Jessica Arevalo but mathematically possible.

OLYMPIA POINT SERIES LEADERS:
Stephanie Mahoe – 19
Jessica Arevalo – 17
Dayna Maleton – 13
Kelsie Clark – 12
Nicola Weiterova – 11
Tawna Eubanks – 8
Anna Virmajoki – 7
Callie Bundy – 5

2014 OLYMPIA WOMEN’S PHYSIQUE SHOWDOWN

Sara Hurrle
Toni West

Jennifer Robinson
Frances Mendez
Nathalie Falk
Juliana Malacarne
Samantha Hill
Mindi O’Brien
Tamee Marie

There are three qualifying events remaining for the IFBB Pro Women’s Physique competitors. The San Jose Pro, Golden State Pro and the Tampa Pro will determine who finishes in the top spots. Currently sitting in the top five spots are Rachel Baker, Olga Beliakova, Roxie Beckles, Jackyln Sutton-Abrams and Sandra Lombardo. Several more women could move up into the top five after the next events. This division’s top spots will likely come down to the final show in Tampa.

OLYMPIA POINT SERIES LEADERS:
Rachel Baker – 11
Olga Beliakova – 8
Roxie Beckles – 7

2014 IFBB Chicago Pro Results


chicago pro results

The 2014 IFBB Wings of Strength Chicago Pro show was one of the few remaining events left on the schedule before the Olympia. Over 100 men and women competed but only the winner of each division would punch their ticket to the big dance this September. There were a few expected finishes mixed in with a few surprises.

Fiona Harris took the top spot in not only the physique round but also the routine round. This is without question her best showing as a pro. Typically Fiona doesn’t fair as well in the routine rounds so for her to take the win in both rounds is a huge improvement. Coming second, was Fiona’s Canadian counterpart Daniell Ruban. Danielle had to play catch up going into the routine round. After the 2-piece score she was in 6th. The judges placed her routine in second and it launched her into the runner-up position. Darrian Tissenbaum did not finish due to an illness before the routine round which left her unable to perform.

Rita Bello took the top spot in women’s bodybuilding and Leila Thompson in women’s physique. The win qualifies them for the Olympia. In the Figure division, we saw rising star Cydney Gillon shine her brightest yet. The 21-year old track star has huge potential as was evident in Chicago. Coming in a close second was Wendy Fortino. Wendy started out a bit sluggish this year but has found the right look and continues to improve.

Welcome to The Next Level – 2014 NPC Universe Results


2014 UNIVERSE

The IFBB Pro League added a few more women to their roster tonight in Teaneck, New Jersey, The 2014 NPC Universe (formerly Team Universe) competition includes bikini, fitness, figure, men and women’s physique and men’s bodybuilding. Women’s bodybuilding was dropped from the event due to the lackluster turn out in previous years.

The fitness division is the most challenging for competitors to prepare for but the most entertaining division to watch. Sadly, the division continues to struggle with the number of entrants. Years ago there were only two options for women to compete in… bodybuilding or fitness. The Figure division was added, then came bikini and most recently physique. It’s easier This weekend’s NPC fitness event is the officially known as the NPC Fitness Nationals and held in conjunction with the NPC Universe competition. The top two in each fitness class graduate to the new level of competition. We’ll have to wait and see if anyone in this class can shake things up in the pro league.

2014 IFBB Patriots Pro Bikini Competitors & Preview – UPDATED


patriots pro

The first annual IFBB Patriots Pro Bikini show will take place this weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada. When the lineup was first announced there were only eight women on the list but that has since changed. Currently, 20 women are slated to compete. Despite the twelve additions only one competitor appears to be a threat to the big two. Anything can happen on game day but if history repeats itself it’ll come down to Stacey Alexander, Angela Marquez and Justine Munro for the top spots.

Angela Marquez has won three shows in a row and will look for her fourth this weekend. She’ll face her toughest test of the year when she meets up with hometown girl Stacey Alexander. Stacey was third at last year’s Olympia and won’t have to worry about hotels or travel since she calls Vegas home. Stacey and Angela will likely finish in the top spots unless they’ve camped out at an In-N-Out Burger. We saw Justine on stage earlier this year where she finished 10th at the Bikini International. Look for her to be compared to Stacey and Angela for the win.

There’s no clear cut favorites to round out the top five. Yarishna has a good look but her legs have yet to come down and tend to be a bit too muscular compared to her upper body. Marcela has a good look and if she can come in with a fuller look to her physique has a good chance at that third place spot. Mary Dent will blow people’s minds when they see her and find out she’s over 50. Can she finish in the top spots? Don’t bet against her. Jennifer Dietrick hasn’t competed much this year and has been all over the board with her placings in previous shows. Liana Hamilton has yet to dial it in this year but has the tools to nail a top spot. If she comes in tighter than her last two shows she’ll be in the hunt.
