Janet Layug Wins 2014 IFBB Battle on The Beach Pro Bikini Results

The 2014 IFBB Battle on the Beach played out as most thought it would at least for the most part. Janet Layug, competing in just her second pro show, took home top honors and a ticket to the Bikini Olympia contest. Janet took top honors at the 2013 NPC Nationals and quickly became a fan favorite. She finished 8th in her pro debut earlier this month but she faced the best in the division at the Bikini International.

Janet Layug

Look for Janet to be in the hunt for the top spot again in a couple weeks when she competes at the Orlando Europa. She’s one of the taller competitors and can hold her own at the Olympia if she continues to fill out her frame. Coming in second was Stephanie Mahoe and in doing so collected more points towards the Olympia Series. Angeles Burke was third and Callie Bundy finished 4th in her pro debut. Rounding out the top five was Jessica Renee. Surprisingly not at her best was Michelle Lewin who had beaten Janet last year when the two were amateurs but missed the top 5 this time around.

Just four women entered the Pro Masters Bikini and Amira Lamb left with the win. Janet Lynn West was second, Nathalie Mur third and in fourth was Michon Leddy.

SHOCKER in Sacramento – 2014 IFBB Governor’s Cup Pro Figure Results

The women of the IFBB Pro Figure division were back on stage in Sacramento, CA. The 2014 Governor’s Cup had 27 women in the show but only one would punch their ticket to the Olympia stage. The odds-on favorite heading into the show was Vegas resident Mallory Haldeman. Haldeman, at least on paper, was the one to beat having finished fifth at the 2013 Olympia and before that had two back-to-back wins. When the top five placings were announced many were shocked.

sacramento results

Jessica Graham was crowned your 2014 Governor’s Cup Pro Figure winner. Who is Jessica Graham? Great question.

This was Jessica’s IFBB Pro debut and flew under the radar to most, myself included. She put together an impressive amateur resume over the years before turning pro last summer. Graham turned pro at the 2013 NPC USAs last July by winning the C height class. She was the 2012 NPC Contra Costa Champion and took first at the 2009 NPC Sacramento. The win qualifies her for the 2014 Olympia in Las Vegas. Congrats to Jessica on doing what few have done… win their IFBB Pro debut.

Rounding out the top five were Allison Frahn, Krista Dunn, Monica Labriola and Linda Andrews. Each of these women earn points in the Olympia Qualification Series. Krista went on to win her first pro show in the 2014 IFBB Governor’s Cup Masters Pro Figure. While there is no Master’s Olympia Figure event, she does pick up some prize money and bragging rights.

Haldeman not cracking the top five was shocking but also surprising was last year’s runner-up Wendy Fortino finishing 15th this time around. It’s a reminder you never know what can happen on any given show.

Noy Alexander Wins the 2014 MuscleContest Pro Bikini

The 2014 Pro Bikini field wasn’t the largest we’ve seen in the pro ranks but with three contests being held on the same day, one was bound to field fewer than the others. Despite the small turnout, the winner was no less deserving. Noy Alexander notched her first pro open win of her career in unanimous fashion. She was victorious last year in the inaugural Sacramento Pro Master’s division. Lissette Howard finished in second and Canada’s Jaclyn Wilson finished in third.

Lewis wins in St. Louis – IFBB Figure Pro Results

Candice Lewis was in the shape of her life at the 2014 Figure International and despited missing out on the top three she wasn’t about to let an opportunity go to waste. She headed to St. Louis, Missouri and scored a unanimous win in the field of 24 women. Lewis’ incredibly tiny waist combined with just the right amount of conditioning propelled her to the win. If she brings a similar look to the Olympia stage this Fall she’ll be a threat for the title.

Dana Ambrose was back in the driver’s seat and back in the top callout. She was just on the outside of the top spots at the Figure International in Columbus but was back in the groove here. She scored a 13, one point better than Monica Labriola who was arguably at her all time best. Monica has nice shape and she found the right balance of conditioning to suit her frame this time around. Allison Frahn and Natalie Waples rounded out the top five.

Congrats to all the Figure Pros and to promoters Jack and Ann Titone on another successful event.

2014 IFBB Australia Pro Figure Results & Scores

Candice Keene continued her winning ways down under at the 2014 Australia Pro Figure competition. She made the trip from the U.S. after winning her second Figure International title. Candice was the unanimous winner on the judges scoresheets and coasted to another victory.

Heather Dees finished in second, matching her placing from last week at the Figure International. Moving back up into the top spots was Ava Cowan with a solid third place score. Amanda Doherty jumped up to 4th place and Larissa Reis rounded out the top five.

The surprise of the show has to be two-time Figure Olympia Champ Erin Stern not being in the top callout or second callout for that matter. She was not as hard or conditioned as the other competitors however those who follow the Figure division have seen Erin in fairly similar condition and still finish in the top five. She opted to skip the Arnold after a second place finish at the 2013 Olympia and make this her first show of the year. Erin finished in sixth, her lowest finish since as a pro since her debut in 2009.

2014 IFBB Legends Classic Pro Bikini Results

The inaugural IFBB Legends Classic Pro Bikini took place in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 1st. The newly added pro show kicked things off for the IFBB Pro League and sent the winner to the Olympia which will be held in Vegas this Fall. Nine competitors entered the event, none of which had won a pro show.



Christie Marquez could be considered the veteran of the IFBB Bikini division, at least in this line up. She’d competed in over 15 shows as a pro and we’ve seen her placings all over the map with her highest finish being 4th place. On Saturday night she change that by notching her first pro win and a ticket to the Olympia in the process. Nipping at her heels in second was Texan Kelsie Burgin. Kelsie achieved pro status at the 2012 NPC USA but had struggled to finish higher than 10th in her previous four shows. She brought a tighter, toned physique this time around and it paid off with a second place finish. Rounding out the top three was newcomer, Michelle Lewin. Michelle has built quite the fan base online with her popular instagram account and found success in a string of NPC shows in Florida. Michelle was the 2013 NPC Ft. Lauderdale Cup overall winner. She achieved pro status but successfully petitioning for her pro card, as other non-USA residence have done. Most notably, Nathalia Melo who also won the NPC Ft. Lauderdale cup and went on to become the Bikini Olympia champ. Michelle brings a bit more muscle than some of the other women in the show, most notably in her legs. She’s one to watch upcoming shows to make a run for the top spot and don’t be surprised if you see her grace a magazine cover or two this year.

2013 NPC National Championships Bikini Results & Hardbody Review

The 2013 NPC National Championships held in Ft Lauderdale, Florida marked the final opportunity for National Physique Committee (NPC) amateurs to compete for pro status. The top two finishers in each class graduated to the IFBB Pro League. Once in the pro league, competitors compete for prize money. The Bikini division has seen an unprecedented growth over the last two years and it was evident at this show.

2013 npc national bikini winners

As with most national level shows, some classes were more competitive than others. Obviously every competitor has their own reason for competing but what brings most competitors to a national level show like this is the chance to “go pro”. It’s often the little details that make the biggest difference on the national stage. A competitor’s physique, hair, tan, suit choice, makeup and presentation all come into play and can determine first callout or a third callout. Some women nailed this spot on but the majority of the competitors were far from polished and it makes you wonder if they need more stage time on the local level, hire a new coach or perhaps should have hired one to begin with. As always there’s some goofy posing, bad hair and makeup and poor suit choices but that’s to be expected. This show had fewer what “not to dos” than most shows and it shows progress in the division.

Those who follow the division knew there were a few favorites heading into this show. Some delivered and others fell a bit short. Janet Layug was one of those competitors who had some buzz heading into the show and delivered. She took top honors at the 2013 FLEX Bikini Model Search at the Olympia and had a string of NPC wins under her bikini. If she looks familiar, she bares a striking resemblance to her sister IFBB Pro Monique (Minton) Ricardo and it’s obvious there are great genetics in the family. As expected, Janet took home not only to honors in the F class but also the overall. While Janet has stunning good looks and a great physique I’d like to see her come in a bit fuller when she competes as a pro. She’s a tall drink of water and in some poses looked a bit too lean, especially when compared for the overall title. She’ll undoubtedly make an impact in the pro ranks and her years of modeling before entering the NPC are apparent on stage. She’s confident and has just the right balance of sexiness without it being too much.

I thought Antanique Landry (C Class Winner – red suit) and Marcela Cabral (E Class Winner – blue suit) presented physiques that were a bit fuller and just the right balance of a tight and toned look. If the judges had went with Antanique for the win I don’t think too many people would have argued with the decision. This was the best she’s looked and it paid off with a win in the C Class. She was second in this class at the 2011 NPC Nationals and back then pro status wasn’t awarded to the top two in each class. She was also the runner-up at the 2013 NPC Jr Nationals and once again narrowly missed out on pro status as only the winners of each class left as a pro. Antanique not only brought her best physique to the stage she also rocked her hair a bit different and you couldn’t help but notice her on stage because of it. In previous shows she had her hair straight and didn’t stand out as much as she did with the naturally curly hair. A great example of how a simple hair choice makes a difference.

Marcela Cabral was the other class winner who stood out to me when it came to the overall comparisons. She was third in her class at the 2013 NPC Texas State but rose to the top at this show. She improved her posing and presentation from previous shows and it made a huge difference. Marcela has a nice balance of tight and toned muscle without being over-the-top. She was a bit fuller this show than previous shows and when she smiles she lights up the room. She’ll be one to watch in the pro ranks if she presents the same look as she did here.

Alicia Coates Cruises to Second Pro Win

Alicia Coates cruised to her second pro win in as many weeks. The rookie out of Arizona put a stamp on her 2013 season by winning the inaugural Felicia Romero Pro Figure Classic. Last week, Coates won her pro debut and the Kentucky Muscle Pro. Leaping to her highest finish as a pro was Boise girl, Brooke Erickson. Brooke Erickson’s second place finish caps off a great season for her.

arizona pro results  Krista Dunn continued her hot streak by finishing in third. The finish puts her atop the Olympia point series heading into 2014.  Rounding out the top five was Sasha Brown in fourth and Crystal Lowery in fifth. Slipping from third at last week’s show to sixth this week was San Diego’s Francine Sablan.

Next up for the Figure Pros will be the Figure International. Many of these women will be looking for a spot at the prestigious event. If you’re a gambler, put your money on Alicia Coates not only getting an invite but making her presence known with a top 6 finish. She has the shape and look to stand out in any line-up. If she brings up her back just a bit she’ll be hanging with the first callout in every show she enters.

2013 IFBB Tijuana Pro Results

The 2013 Tijuana Pro brought the season to an end for the IFBB Pro League. Coming out on top in the bikini competition was Crystal Mathews from Denver, Colorado. It was her first win as a pro and will embark on her first Olympia in 2014. Jessica James struggled in her first two pro shows but rose to the top spots by finishing in second. She has tremendous potential and one to watch next year.


Dayna Maleton’s third place finish puts her at the top of the 2014 Olympia Point Series. Arizona’s Ashriel Osgood finished in fourth and Mexico’s Lorena Bucio rounded out the top five.

The next stop for the IFBB Pro Bikini division is Las Vegas, NV the first weekend of February. They will then pack up their gym bags and head to Columbus, Ohio for the annual Bikini International.

Taylor Matheny Benston Take Top Honors at The Irongames Pro

Taylor Matheny Benston won her first pro show in Culver City over the weekend at the IFBB IRON GAMES. Sixteen women competed but only the winner punches their ticket to the Olympia stage. She successfully did what few saw coming… beat last week’s Iowa Pro champion, Narmin Assria.


Taylor is no stranger to the pro bikini stage and her placings have been up and down over the past two years. She’s always had a great look but it was the little details that held her back. She would often try too hard to be sexy on stage and her suit choices weren’t always the best. She’d place as high as second and as low as 16th. On Saturday in Culver City, California she put all the little details together and deservedly took top honors. The judges saw it as an unanimous win.

Narmin Assria was coming off a win at the Iowa Pro so the pressure was off her but that didn’t stop her from showing up less than her best. She had to settle for second this time around though. Riding a high from last weekend’s first pro master’s win, Noy Alexander continued to more than hold her own. She finished fifth in the open last week and moved up to third in this competition. She continues to bring a better look as the season goes on. Candice Conroy edged out Jessica Arevalo by three points to take fourth. Jessica was third last week in Sacramento but relegated to fifth this weekend.

Alicia Coates Rolls In Pro Debut – Kentucky Muscle Pro Figure Results

The 2013 IFBB Pro Figure season is coming to an end but Alicia Coates is just getting started. The Arizona resident coasted to an unanimous win in her pro debut at the 2013 Kentucky Muscle Pro. She won her class at the NPC Jr. Nationals earlier this year and picked up where she left off in the big league. The win qualified her for the 2014 Olympia slated for September.


Alicia noticeably put on some size since June but managed to keep a tiny waist. She beat out a field of wiley veterans and will look to repeat the feat again next week at the Felicia Romero Classic. Dana Ambrose came finished in second and collected four points towards the Olympia Point Series. Francine Sablan bounced back up into the top three and also snagged coveted points with the third place finish. Canada’s Natalie Waples finished in fourth and rounding out the top five was Colorado’s Krista Dunn.

One show remains on the schedule for the Pro Figure competitors and then it’s downtime until the Figure International next March. Congratulations to everyone who stepped on stage and reached their goals this weekend at the Kentucky Pro.

Amanda Latona and Noy Alexander Victorious at 2013 Sacramento Pro

The 2013 Sacramento Pro Bikini had a huge turnout with 30 women in the open division. Up until this show there was only an open division in the bikini pro ranks. The Masters Pro division was added for the first time and it was met with mixed reviews. Some feel there should be no separation of age, you’re either good enough to win as a pro or not. Others would argue having a Masters division provides a more even playing field in the division, especially in Bikini. The inaugural masters pro event had 16 women in the lineup.


Heading into the event the odds on favorite was Amanda Latona from Las Vegas, Nevada. She’d won this event the last three years and was coming off a sixth place finish at the Olympia. Latona edged out Tawna Eubanks by one point for the win. Amanda has one of the best physiques in the division however her posing isn’t always the most flattering. It’s hard to argue there’s anything “wrong” when she continues to win but it’s not a look that works for every competitor. Check out the pics on to see what I mean. Tawna Eubanks looked her best of the year and had to settle for the brides maid spot for the second year in a row. This was her second runner-up finish in a row but puts her in lead for the 2014 Olympia Point Series. Jessica Arevalo matched her finish from 2013 as well in third place. Sarah LeBlanc continued to make her presence known in the top five by finishing fourth. Noy Alexander was at her best and finished in fifth.

The first IFBB Master’s Pro Bikini title went to Noy Alexander. The Masters division is open to all pros 35 years of age and older. At this show competitors were allowed to enter both the open and masters event. Future events may force competitors to choose one or the other but that has yet to be determined. Noy presented one of her best looks as a pro and it paid off. Rosemary Valenzuela finished in second and was one place behind Noy in the Open. She competed in Sacramento as an amateur earlier this year and went on to earn pro status at Masters Nationals. Maureen Doherty rounded out the top three.

Narmin Nabs Win At Iowa Pro

The women of the IFBB Pro Bikini division had a busy November opener. Two pro shows were held on Saturday, November 2nd. The Iowa Pro and the Sacramento Pro we showcased some of the best physiques in the country. The Iowa Pro wasn’t the deepest line-up with 12 competitors but that didn’t stop it from being competitive. The pro show was held in conjunction with a large NPC show. Promoter Jack Titone continues to build up a strong presence in the Midwest with his shows.


Heading into the show the smart money was on the show being between Narmin Assria and Lacey Deluca. The two have finished the highest of anyone else in the group and competed at the Olympia. In the end, Narmin prevailed and punched her ticket back to the Olympia stage. Lacey notched her third top two finish since the 2013 Olympia. She matched her finish at the Sheru Classic and was already qualified with her win at the Houston Pro. Dayna Maleton continues to hold her own in the top three and has one of the best physiques in the division, at least in my opinion. The Colorado gals rounded out the top five with Crystal Green in fourth and Sandi Forsythe in fifth.

Candice John Wins The 2013 Tournament of Champions Pro Figure – Complete Results

Thirteen women entered the 2013 IFBB Tournament of Champions Figure competition in hopes of qualifying for the Olympia. The event was the last opportunity to qualify for the IFBB Pro League’s biggest competition. For the competitors the stakes were high but clear… Win and you’re in. Finish in the top five and you collect points in the Olympia Point Series. Leading into today’s show, mathematically, only three women could qualify via the point system. Victoria Adelus, Kim Sheppard and Candice John were in position to leave with a ticket to the big show even if they didn’t win but did finish in the top four.


They were locked in a three-way tie for sixth place. Each had 7 points and needed two or more points to get in (fifth only offers one point). This is where things get a bit more interesting. Should one of them win, then it would come down to who finished the highest of the other two. That’s exactly how it played out in Culver City this evening.

Candice John has been competing for most of the year and her placings have been a bit of a roller coaster. She was 13th at the Figure International in March but followed it up with a third place finish at the Pittsburgh Pro. She was fifth in Toronto but dropped to 16th in Tampa. One week later she moved up to 6th at the Dallas Europa and then last week improved to 3rd at the Valenti Cup. She was the unanimous winner on the judges’ scoresheet and leaves with an Olympia qualification. This is Candice’s second pro victory, her first pro win was the 2012 Pittsburgh Pro. Candice will enjoy the victory for a short bit but then it’s on to the Olympia where she’ll look to break the top 10 for the first time.

Victoria Adelus has been constantly improving the little details throughout the year. Her biggest challenge had been coming in full and not looking too stringy. She seemed to find the right formula in her previous two shows and came to California looking sharp. Unfortunately, Victoria came up just short and had to settle for third. There’s no shame in third however when one placing determines your fate for the Olympia, it has to be bitter sweet. Kim Sheppard had her best finish as a pro with the second place finish. She was 4th at last week’s Valenti Cup and before that was in 12th at the Dallas Europa. Kim had a pair of top five finishes earlier in the year with a 4th in Omaha and 3rd at the California pro. The second place finish earned her enough points to qualify for the Olympia.

Sasha Brown had her highest finish in her pro career in fourth and rounding out the top five was Latorya Watts. Latorya was just one point behind Sasha for fifth. Latorya has consistently been in the top spots since winning the 2013 NPC USA overall figure title.
