prestige cup

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.

olympia qualifier

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.

2014 IFBB Tournament of Champions Pro Figure Competitor Lists


2014 tournament of champions

The 2014 IFBB Tournament of Champions, held in San Diego, CA is one of the last chances for women in Pro Figure to qualify for the Olympia. The event will be held on July 12th with 25 women slated to compete. There’s also a pro master’s figure competition and a NPC National Qualifying event held in conjunction with the Pro Figure competition.

THE HARDBODY 411
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.

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

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

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.

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.

THE HARDBODY 411:
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.

Arnold Sports Festival Adds Pro Physique to 2015 Lineup


The Arnold Sports Festival will feature the IFBB Pro Women’s and Men’s Physique divisions for the first time in 2015. The announcement was made on Facebook and noted the first Women’s Physique Olympia winner, Dana Linn Bailey would be competing. As you might expect from a few online keyboard warriors, not every comment about the addition was positive. The Arnold Facebook page boasts over 2 million fans and with that you have to expect varied opinions on pretty much everything.

2015 arnold

When the Olympia added Physique to the 2014 event the division was validated. The announcement from the Arnold Sports Fesitval reinforces it. Competitors now have two major titles to strive for and it will ultimately help increase the numbers in the amateur ranks. If you look at the big picture, the IFBB Pro women’s physique division is still in its infancy. This year’s pro competitions have been attracting more entrants but are we seeing more ticket buying fans? As of yet, I’d guess no but like anything new time will ultimately be the deciding factor.

The challenge will be HOW to make the division appealing to fans. It’s a challenge that should be, at least in my opinion, a shared responsibility by everyone in the industry. The Pro League is helping do their part by providing competitors a stage to compete on and at the biggest events. The division has to gain more traction within the bodybuilding industry before it can gain popularity outside of it. The bodybuilding and fitness media has yet to do much on the division and you rarely see women physique competitors in any of the magazines. Men’s Physique competitors are getting more exposure in the magazines because it’s a more “mainstream look”. Let’s be honest, there’s nothing “mainstream” about the Women’s Physique division and that’s okay. The same could be said for other divisions as well, with maybe the exception of Bikini when it comes to mass appeal. It’s not a look most people can related to and that too is not a bad thing. Instead of trying to gain “mainstream” acceptance better time may be spent sharing the benefits of eating healthy, training and goal setting. Many of the pro physique competitors are doing a bang up job of promoting themselves but are missing the big picture. They share a responsibility in promoting the division as well. As Dana Linn Bailey’s husband pointed out in his Facebook comment after the announcement.

The 2015 Arnold Sports Fesitval will be held on March 5-8, in Columbus, Ohio. Visit arnoldsportsfestival.com for tickets and more information on next year’s events.



Heather Dees Sits Out 2014 Figure Olympia


Salt Lake City’s brightest IFBB Pro Heather Dees has been one of the most consistent Figure competitors over the past three years. That was the case until the 2014 tNew York Pro where she finished a career low, 14th.

heather dees olympia

Heather turned pro at the 2010 NPC Nationals and since then has competed in 17 pro shows. She’s been the runner-up in seven of those shows and been in the winner’s circle twice. She’s finished second at the 2013 and 2014 Figure International in Columbus, Ohio and was the runner-up at this year’s Australian Pro. The past two year’s Heather has finished in fourth place at the Olympia. You get the point, she’s a viable threat to the top five in every competition she enters. Until the 2014 New York Pro.

At last month’s New York Pro she wasn’t just off her best by a little. She was way off. Clearly something didn’t go right with her prep and she knew it. You could tell from the moment she stepped on stage this wasn’t the look the judges and fans have come to expect from her. It was obvious it wasn’t a look she was comfortable presenting.

Last weekend, Heather announced in an interview that she will be sitting out the 2014 Figure Olympia. Heather cited her health as a main concern and went on to share this will be her first offseason in four years. When it came to sitting out the Olympia she says, “It was definitely a hard decision.” Heather appears relieved by the upcoming break and understandably so. In the interview, she addressed being off the mark in New York and took ownership of not being at her best. Something many competitors fail to do and typically blame everyone but themselves.

Heather sitting out the Olympia definitely changes the landscape of this year’s Figure competition. While not confirmed, she’s likely the third woman from last year’s top six who will not be back this year. Two-time Olympia champ Erin Stern appears to be unofficially retired and fifth place finisher Mallory Haldeman will not be competing.

Keep up with Heather Dees on Facebook and Twitter to see what she’s up to in her offseason.

2014 IFBB Greater Gulf Pro Results


Tamee Marie continued her winning ways in Louisiana tonight by taking top honors at the Greater Gulf pro. This is the second time Tamee has won this show and it’s her second victory this month. The win is her fourth title since making the switch from Figure to the Women’s Physique division. She beat out a competitive field and positions herself as one to watch at the Olympia this September.

2014 Greater Gulf States Pro

The bikini winner doesn’t come as much of a surprise to those who follow the division. Amanda Latona successfully defended her title; the win is her 10th in the IFBB Pro Bikini division and first of 2014. Amanda finished third at the Bikini International in March and had a third place finish at the Pittsburgh Pro in May. Look for her to make a run at the Olympia top spots in September.

2014 IFBB Greater Gulf Prejudging Report


The prejudging portion of the 2014 IFBB Greater Gulf States has concluded and it looks like the competition is close in both the Women’s Physique and Bikini divisions.

prejudging new orleans

Karina Nascimento looks poised for her first win of the year in the women’s physique division. She’s currently not qualified for the Olympia and has 3 points in the Olympia Point Series. If she should finish in second she would receive four points and would be tied for third in the series. Based on how things looked at the prejudging though she is your likely champion. Tamee Marie is fresh off a win at the Omaha Pro and is giving Karina a run for her money. It looks like the judges may put her in the runner-up position. There’s no pressure but certainly bragging rights on the line. Tamee’s win in Omaha qualified her for the Olympia in September. Rounding out the top three will most likely be Leila Thompson. She was the 2013 overall NPC JR USA winner and has yet to crack the top 10 as a pro. Her last appearance was the Optimum Classic earlier this year where she finished 16th. A third place finish would be a huge improvement for her.

women's physique

The Bikini division shaped up to be the defending champ, Amanda Latona versus Sarah LeBlanc. Sarah looks to be Amanda’s biggest threat for the top spot as the two were compared next to each other and smack dab in the middle of the stage. That doesn’t always mean they are your winners but in this case it’s highly likely they are your top two. They presented similar looks today. They both have dark brown hair and were wearing a red suit. So who will win it? We’ll find out later tonight.

Two newcomers shook things up in the top spots. Jenee Leger in just her second pro show should finish in the top spots and rightfully so. Fresh off her win at the 2014 NPC JR NATIONALS, Brittany Taylor made an immediate impact. She wasn’t on the original competitors’ list and someone many may have overlooked the rookie. She appears poised to finish in the top four in her pro debut, just one week after turning pro.

2014 Olympia Will Be Televised on NBC Sports


Great news for Bodybuilding and Fitness fans! The 2014 Olympia contest will be shown on television. Something that hasn’t happened in THIRTY YEARS! American Media, Inc. and NBC Sports Group announced plans for two 90-minute televised features of the 50th Olympia. The specials will air on October 18 at 1:30pm EST and the second will be shown on October 25 at 5:30pm EST. The Olympia will be webcast live online at bodybuilding.com and will not air live on NBC Sports. The telecast will highlight a variety of aspects from the Olympia weekend and the main focus will likely be on the Mr. Olympia competition.

Olympia on TV

PRESS RELEASE:
American Media, Inc. (AMI) and NBC Sports Group today announced a partnership to televise the 2014 Mr. Olympia contest on NBCSN. The partnership will feature two 90-minute telecasts of the 50th annual Mr. Olympia where three-time champion Phil Heath will defend his title at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.

“We are pleased to partner with NBC Sports Group to bring the excitement of the 2014 Mr. Olympia, and all of the events of Olympia Weekend, to a national television audience,” said AMI Chairman, President, and CEO David J. Pecker. “The Olympia Weekend is an extraordinary event that underscores the passion and commitment that every competitor brings to the stage, and the exhilaration of the more than forty thousand spectators that will attend this year’s event.”

The partnership brings the Mr. Olympia back to TV for the first time since 1984, when Lee Haney won his first of eight titles. NBCSN will televise two 90-minute specials around the event, the first on October 18 at 1:30 p.m. ET and the second on October 25 at 5:30 pm ET.

“We look forward to bringing the bodybuilding world’s most prestigious event back to television for its 50th annual contest,” said Lou Ferrer, Director, Programming Acquisitions, NBC Sports Group.

Each telecast will highlight various aspects of the Mr. Olympia competition, featuring some of the sport’s biggest stars including Kai Greene, Dennis Wolf, Branch Warren, and Mamdouh “Big Ramy” Elssbiay as they attempt to wrest the coveted title from defending champion Phil Heath. One of the most notable winners of the contest was a young Austrian bodybuilder named Arnold Schwarzenegger who was named Mr. Olympia in 1970 at 23 years-old. Schwarzenegger was the youngest competitor to claim the title, and went on to win seven titles in total (1970-1975, 1980).

“It is a great opportunity to have this year’s Olympia Weekend broadcast on NBCSN, exposing the sport to an even broader audience who will see what bodybuilding and fitness are all about and getting an up-close view of the larger-than-life personalities,” said Jim Manion IFBB Professional League President. “Not only will this help raise the sport to new heights by showcasing the hard work and passion of today’s superstars like reigning and three-time Mr. Olympia Phil Heath, number one challenger Kai Greene, Dennis Wolf, and Shawn Rhoden, it may even inspire a future Mr. Olympia.”

In addition to crowning Mr. Olympia, the telecasts will also showcase how the Mr. Olympia competition has grown from its humble beginnings in 1965 into a four-day exposition featuring the Fitness, Figure, and Bikini Olympia contests, men’s and women’s physique contests, and several other activities and events. Last year, more than 40,000 people passed through the doors for The Mr. Olympia Fitness and Performance Weekend.

The 2014 Mr. Olympia Fitness and Performance weekend takes place September 18-21 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, NV. Tickets are available now at mrolympia.com or by calling 888-234-2334.

RESULTS & REPORT: IFBB Amateur Olympia Latin America


The first annual IFBB Amateur Olympia Latin America was held in Acapulco, Mexico on June 14-15, 2014. The overall winners in all divisions earn IFBB Pro status and bragging rights as the first ever Latin America Amateur Olympia Champion.

Amateur Olympia Latin America Results

Elia Fernandez from Mexico Yucatan won the short bikini class and took the top spot in the overall comparisons. It came down to a tie-breaker for the win. Romina Basualdo from Argentina tied with Elia in the overall comparisons. Jovanna Ibanez Parra from Mexico won the short Bodyfitness (Figure) division and the overall title. Raquel Ramos from Spain left with the top spot in the Women’s Physique division.

Competitors don’t have to win the competition to get noticed in events like this. Media members from all over the world were in attendance and took notice of some of the up-and-coming faces. The IFBB amateur events are run a bit different than those at NPC competitions. There is no individual posing in prejudging, only comparisons. At the Finals, the field is cut to the top six in each class and only those competitors hit individual poses. The women’s physique division is still in its infancy outside of the USA, as evident with only four competitors. The bikini division had a variety of shapes and sizes on stage and a number of head turning physiques.

2014 NPC / IFBB Greater Gulf Preview


Things will be heating up in Metairie, Louisiana this weekend for the 2014 NPC / IFBB Greater Gulf. The show, promoted by Luke and Robin Tesvich, has become one of the favorite events for pros and amateurs. The venue is close to the airport and it’s a very laid back, well run event. Once you’re done with the competition you take a short drive into New Orleans and enjoy some of the best food in the world.

greater gulf states

This will be the third year for the pro competition of the Greater Gulf and the 21st year for the NPC Greater Gulf States. Luke and Robin are expecting over 250 NPC competitors and 67 pros to compete over the course of two days. Yes, the show has grown so large that they’ve split it into two days. Competitors love this set up as the prejudging and finals are on the same day. Women are up first and the men’s competition is held the following day. It’s also one of the few events with a wheelchair bodybuilding competition.

THE HARDBODY 411:

BIKINI
Favorites:
I expected a few more competitors to be in this show from the bikini division but perhaps learning of who was in it scared some of the women away. Amanda Latona will be back to defend her Greater Gulf title but she’ll have a little tougher time this year. On paper, Amanda has to be considered the favorite for the win but it’s not a sure thing. Last year’s overall NPC bikini winner at this show, Jenee Leger will be competing as a pro this time around. She made an immediate impact in her pro debut with a win at the Dallas Europa. She has a similar look to Latona and don’t be shocked if you see the two of them standing next to one another being compared for the win. Amanda is at her best when she doesn’t stage on stage trying to hit too many poses and doing the weird leg cocked to one side pose. It was her stage presence early on in her pro bikini career that stands out. No need to over due things when you have looks and a body that do the talking.

Contenders:
Rounding out the top spots will likely be Sara LeBlanc, Desiree Niemann, Aly Garcia and Michelle Lewin. Sarah found success on stage earlier this year and I see her being in the mix once again at this show. Desiree Niemann is coming off a third place finish last week, in her pro debut, and will undoubtedly be in the mix for the top five. Michelle Lewin is wildly popular on social media but still trying to find her groove on the pro competition stage. Aly Garcia, who went by Aly Veneno in the past, should also be a top contender. She’s toned down posing and if she brings the same look and presentation to this competition she’ll finish in the top spots.

Long shots:
Liana Hamilton has the potential to be in the mix but needs, in my opinion, to go back to the look that worked for her last year. She’s been a bit fuller and too soft in her competitions this year. I like the look of Marcela Cabral from San Antonio, Texas and she could sneak into the first callout but it will be tough.

4. Adrienne Crenshaw
5. Aly Garcia
6. Liana Hamilton
7. Sarah LeBlanc
8. Jenee Leger
9. Michelle Lewin
10. Meredith Mack
11. Desiree Niemann

WOMEN’S PHYSIQUE
This is one of the larger turnouts for the women’s physique division. Last year’s champ, Tycie Coppett will not be back to defend her title and is focused on the Olympia. Tamee Marie will be looking for her second victory in a row and could do it. She just has to nail the little details like her tanning. The heat in Louisiana can often be a challenge for tanning and hair due to the heat and humidity. She’ll have her work cut out for her to take top honors. Roxie Beckles, Sheena Ohlig, Leonie Rose, Mascha Tieken and Karina Nascimento are all names that jump out as contenders. There are a variety of physiques in this competition but look for the women with long and lean muscle to rise to the top.

2014 IFBB Southern California Pro Bikini Competitor Lists & Preview


The women of the IFBB Pro Bikini division will be back in action at the 2014 IFBB Southern California Pro. The event will take place on Saturday, June 14th in San Diego, California. Thirteen women are slated to compete in the open and just three have thrown their heels in the mix for the Masters division.

2014 IFBB Southern California Pro Bikini

THE HARDBODY 411:
Angela Marquez will look to make it three wins in a row. She’ll be coming off back to back victories in Arizona and Northern California. Making her IFBB Pro debut will be Desiree Niemann. Desiree has the potential to make an immediate impact in the pro ranks is she brings a similar look to her amateur days. She achieved IFBB Pro status by winning her class at the 2012 NPC Nationals. Narmin Assria always seems to fair well in the Southern California shows and has to be considered a contender in this lineup. She’s coming off a 6th place finish at the New York Pro. Christie Marquez will look to stay in the top spots after her third place finish at the Northern California Pro. Janelle Saitone-McGuire finished just behind Christie last weekend and should be in the hunt for the top five once again. Others who have potential to break into the top five are Lisette Howard and Amy Updike. Amy continues to move up in her placings and will look to move up from her 7th place finish last week.

Rounding out the top three at this event was California girl Christie Marquez. In the Masters division, Krissy Chin notched her first win as an IFBB Pro. She finished 6th in the open competition.

The annual IFBB Omaha Pro took place on Saturday, June 7th in Omaha, Nebraska. The show is held in conjunction with a NPC event and this year the pro competition featured Women’s Bodybuilding, Women’s Physique and Men’s Physique. Tamee Marie took top honors in the Women’s Physique competition and Anne Freitas snagged the winning spot in the bodybuilding competition. The win qualifies both for the Olympia in Las Vegas.

2014 IFBB Northern California Pro Bikini Competitors & Preview


Twelve women are slated to compete this weekend at the 2014 IFBB Nothern California Pro Bikini contest. A quick look at the list and it could be anyone’s show to win but there are a few names you have to figure will be in the hunt. Jessica Arevalo, Janelle Saitone-McGuire and Christie Marquez have faired the best out of this line up but don’t count out Krissy Chin, Liana Hamilton and Amy Updike. Amy continues to improve with each show and I look for her to crack the top five at this competition. Jessica Arevalo could win this show if she smiles and gives off some positive energy instead of scowling on stage. Christie Marquez will likely be standing next to Jessica and it will come down to the two of them if they are in condition. If Liana Hamilton brings a similar to this stage as she did as an amateur she’ll give them a run for their money and could be your winner.

northern cal

There’s also a master’s pro bikini event which I look for it to be between Krissy Chin and Liana Hamilton for the win. Krissy has to watch not to come in too hard with her conditioning and Liana has to make sure she’s not too soft with hers.
