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 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 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.

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.

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 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.

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 IFBB California Pro Figure Results


Camala Rodriquez continued her winning ways over the weekend at the 2014 IFBB California Pro Figure contest. The win was her third consecutive victory this month. She kicked things off with a victory in Pittsburgh, followed it up with another win in New York and ended the run with a victory in California. We’ll likely see her sit out until the Olympia where she’ll look to make a run at the top spot there.

Sasha Brown bounced back after a disappointing finish in Dallas. The second place finish puts her in the top spots for the Olympia Point Series. Rounding out the top three was Latorya Watts who has incredible shape with a tiny waist.

Tamara Sedleck took home the top spot in the Masters Figure contest. Tamara continues to improve and has positioned herself as a top 10 competitor in shows. Look for her to be in the mix at future competitions.

2014 IFBB New York Pro Women’s Physique Results & Review


Juliana Malacarne remains undefeated as a women’s physique pro, at least in New York. She went into the 2014 IFBB New York Pro Women’s Physique competition as the favorite and she delivered with flying colors. This was the third time she’s won the New York Pro and there was no question she was the deserved winner. Will she carry that momentum to a win at the Olympia this September? We’ll have to wait and see on that but here’s the skinny on this year’s New York Pro Women’s Physique competition.

women physique results

THE HARDBODY 411:
Juliana was a bit tighter at this show than she was in Dallas the week prior. It’s likely she wasn’t at her best in Dallas due to cancelled flights and delays getting to the contest. She had the luxury of not flying for this contest and it showed. Juliana carries more muscle than many of the other competitors in the division but dare I say it’s a “pretty” look to her muscle. She’s downsized a bit from last year and will look to get into the top spot come Olympia time in a few months. No disrespect to the other women in this show but it was Juliana and everyone else.

Shawna Pringle has to be stoked with her finish as this was her IFBB Pro debut. She has nice shape and a good look for the division. If I was to nitpick, I’d say I wasn’t crazy about the suit cut on her bottoms from the back. Look for her to be a contender in future shows.

Fabiola Boulanger took home third place and had a solid showing. She carries a bit more muscle than Shawna but doesn’t have quite the shape she does. When she poses straight on her waist looks a little wide but from the side / twisting poses she hides it well.

Olga Beliakova finished in the top five for the first time in her pro career and was improved from her Dallas appearance. She has some crazy baseball sized biceps and as one of the shorter competitors has to come in a bit leaner than others. She has a nice look and has fun on stage which is refreshing. No one wants to flat footed angry posers and Olga does a good job of posing on her toes, something more Women’s Physique competitors should do.

Mascha Tieken brought an improved physique to the stage and it paid off with a fifth place finish. She came in a bit leaner than she had before and it suited her well. If she enters more competitions this year you’ll see her in the top spots once again.

2014 IFBB New York Pro Figure Results and Review


The 2014 IFBB New York Pro Figure showcased a number of competitors however the judges had their hands full with what they were presented with. We saw some women with more vascularity than the male bodybuilders and others who left you wondering where they had turned pro.

Heading into the show it appeared to be a three woman race with the favorites (at least on paper) being Heather Dees, Camala Rodriquez and Genn Strobo. Based on previous shows and finishes Heather Dees was the one to beat. Things didn’t quite shake out that way.

new york pro figure

THE HARDBODY 411:
Camala Rodriquez was better than what we saw in Pittsburgh earlier this month but still not at her all-time best. She had the best shape and symmetry in the show and that deservedly put her in the winner’s circle. She’ll need to be a bit tighter at the Olympia if she hopes to be in the top three. Overall not a bad show for her and she was head and shoulders above the rest in this field. Look for her to make it three wins in a row if she heads to California for the Cal Pro.

Genn Strobo appeared a bit over depleted and tired on stage. I’m not a big fan of the dark makeup around the eyes and it make her appear even more drawn in than she was. She has to watch her vascularity on stage especially in her shoulders. I know it’s a timing thing with her and she has a fast metabolism so one minute she can appear flat and the others she’s full and vascular. Genetically, she doesn’t have the same flow to her physique as some of the other competitors but has steadily improved since turning pro. She’s not qualified for the Olympia yet so we’ll see her on stage again. I like her with longer hair (like she had here) and her suit was gorgeous.

Laurie Green finished in third and has to be ecstatic with her placing. She was just two points away from finishing in the runner-up spot. I like the fullness she brought to the stage last year but it’s hard to argue with her improved placings. She has a noticeably downsized physique and the judges have been rewarding her new look. She’s was a bit smaller in her quads and shallow in her upper chest compared to Camala but held her own. If she continues to add some width to her back and brings up her quads up in size she’ll continue to be in the mix. Overall a great finish for Laurie.

Andrea Calhoun finished in fourth and continues to improve. She’s one of the shorter competitors but has great shape and hangs with the taller gals. If she continues to improve her posing and presentation she’ll be a contender for the top five in future shows. Andrea tends to present a little lopsided and lean too far forward when posing her back. She doesn’t need to add any more size to her quads and could have been a tad tighter in her glutes and hamstrings.

Beckie Boddie rounded out the top five. She brought a fair amount of muscle to the stage and a bit too vascular in my opinion. This was her highest finish as a pro. We’ll see if she can duplicate t his finish in future competitions.

Kelly Keiser showed promise in her pro debut with a sixth place finish. She’ll need to continue to add size to her frame to move up but overall a good showing. Elissa Martis has a ton of potential. She finished in seventh at this show and I wouldn’t have argued if she was in the top five. She just needs to streamline her physique a bit but overall she’s one to watch in the months ahead.

Overall the competition was a bit lackluster. Some of the women came in way too hard and overly conditioned. The judges should see striations in a Figure competitor’s glutes. A few competitors looked like they were ready to transition into the bikini division. The judges were faced with trying to place a field of competitors with a variety of looks. Yes, this is often the case however this show was more than I’ve seen in quite some time.

What about Dees? Heather was way off. She knew it and you could see it on her face when she took the stage. She finished out of the top ten for the first time in over 3 years. Earlier this year (in March), Heather placed second at the Figure International and the Australian Pro. The drastic drop to 14th at this show was a surprise to everyone. Something clearly didn’t go as planned. She’ll likely take some time off to regroup before the Olympia. She’ll likely enter a show before the Figure Olympia to regain some momentum.

Yeshaira Robles Repeats – 2014 IFBB New York Pro Bikini Results


The New York Pro always showcases the top competitors in the IFBB Bikini division and this year was no different. The reigning Ms Bikini Olympia and Bikini International champ, Ashley Kaltwasser had been on a hot streak and seemed unbeatable, at least on paper heading into this show. Yeshaira Robles was the defending New York Pro champ and coming off a win at the Pittsburgh Pro earlier this month. When it came to the finals, Yeshaira and Ashley were the last two women standing.

2014 IFBB New York Pro Bikini Results

THE HARDBODY 411
The results played out just like last year, at least for the top two spots, and Yeshaira retained her New York Pro title. She has natural stage presence and comes across as sexy and sassy without it being over the top. She adds a little cutesy smile and you can’t help but smile with the energy she brings to the stage. Yeshaira is the epitome of class and one of the pros up and coming bikini competitors should look to on how to present themselves. She has to feel confident heading into the Olympia later this summer.

Ashley wasn’t quite as sharp as we’ve seen her in previous shows but she wasn’t too far off what we’ve seen in the past. She seems a bit nervous at times when she presents herself and her posing/walking in heels could use a bit of work. She has an athletic physique but lacks the energy some of the other women do on stage. At this point in her pro career, I’d like to see her with a bit more energy and be in the moment when on stage. Still a second place finish is nothing to be disappointed in. She was second at this show last year and like last year lost by a narrow margin to Yeshaira.

In third place was Stephanie Mahoe. Stephanie was definitely better than her Pittsburgh appearance earlier this month. She had trouble with her tanning at some shows but it wasn’t an issue here. Stephanie didn’t seem like she was having fun on stage and her presentation was good but lacked energy. I’d like to see her with a bit more sass and enjoy herself rather than just go through the motions.

Stacey Alexander was a bit off from what we’ve seen from her in previous shows. She was tighter at her Pittsburgh appearance where she finished second. Stacey has positioned herself as a top five competitor in every show she enters. The little details have been fixed like her hair and makeup. If she sticks with what works on those all she needs to do is bring a tighter booty and she’s good to go.

Lacey Deluca was much tighter than we’ve seen in previous shows and cursed (or blessed depending on your point of view) with a booty. The only thing that took me back was how drawn in her face was. She’ll need to watch that in future shows as the drawn in face flies with bodybuilders but not so much with bikini competitors. She continues to improve and as long as she keeps doing that she’ll be in the mix. A top five finish in this lineup is a solid placing for her.

A few of my personal favorites…
I like the look Belinda Kiriakou from Canada brings to the stage. She ditched the excessive hands through the hair pose she had in Dallas but still needs to work on her presentation. There’s a timing to it and she tends to hit a couple too many poses and stays on stage longer than others. She carries a bit more muscle than some of the other women but overall she has a great look.

Antanique Landry has a look that separates her from the rest of the competitors. She’s beautiful and has some of the best hair in the division. I love that she went with the natural look versus straightening it. If she brings her legs down in size just a bit you will see her move up. She’s definitely one to watch in future shows.

Amy Updike has a great physique and I like that she doesn’t cover up her tattoos. If she improves her posing from the back just a bit she’ll move up in the placings. I like her potential and the more stage time she gets the more she’ll improve.

Sabrina Nicole brought her best to the stage and it may have been a bit too much for the judges. She has a rock’n set of abs and while I’m a fan of the look it didn’t resonate with the judges this time around. She’s a taller competitor so I don’t think she needs the super thick heels she was sporting but hey what do I know?

2014 Arnold Classic Brazil Fitness Results & Review


The second annual Arnold Classic Brasil took place on Saturday, April 26, 2014 in Rio de Janiero. Eleven IFB Fitness pros made the trip to Rio in hopes of qualifying for the Fitness Olympia and shaking Arnold’s hand. The competition had no clear cut favorite heading into the show which made for an exciting competition.

2014 Arnold Classic Brazil Fitness Results & Review

PHYSIQUE ROUND
The first round of competition was the two-piece swimsuit held during the prejudging portion of the show, directly after the men’s competition. It was clear that Bethany Cisternino would be your winner with the most balanced physique and just the right amount of conditioning. Second in the physique round was Whitney Jones who was one of the most muscular competitors in the show and drastically more conditioned than Cisternino. Whitney was tighter from the backside than she has been in previous competitions. She definitely doesn’t need to add any more muscle to her frame. An argument could have been made for Danielle Ruban or Marta Aguilar to be in the second place spot as they weren’t as muscular as Whitney. It was close on the judges score sheets for the first round with Marta in third, Danielle fourth and Regiane da Silva in fifth. A distant sixth was defending champion Ryall Graber who wasn’t as sharp as she needed to be with her conditioning.

ROUTINE ROUND / Final Placings
Bethany Cisternino took top honors on the judges’ score sheets in the routine round. While it wasn’t her cleanest routine but she demonstrated great strength and conditioning throughout the routine. Bethany’s gymnastic background shines when she performs and the consistent routine combined with an on point physique earned her the victory. I had no problem with this decision and how I saw it from the front row as well. It was a well deserved win. Bethany shared with me after the show that she will not be competing again until the Olympia and despite having a few challenges while in Brazil, she was pleased with the outcome.

Regiane Da Silva‘s high energy and high flying routine moved her up into the runner-up position. If she was a bit closer to Bethany in the physique round she may have pushed her for the win but a solid showing in second place. Regiane continues to refine her physique and her routines are always action packed.

Danielle Ruban finished in third after a solid routine. She performs with a smile and always seems like she is having fun. It’s something other competitors should take note on. No one wants to see an angry poser and Danielle is definitely not that. She had a number of strength moves and demonstrated great endurance from start to finish. This was one of Danielle’s best showings and arguably her best as a pro competitor.

Whitney Jones was in a solid second place heading into the routine round however had to settle for fourth. No shame in fourth at the second annual Arnold Classic Brasil. Whitney’s routine didn’t flow quite as well as some of the others but she did have a number of strength moves throughout. If she ditches some of the dancing in the routine and adds a bit more flow to it she should move up. A solid showing from her though.

Ryall Graber had a good routine which helped move her up into 5th. It wasn’t repeat performance she had last year but she still performed a good routine. Missing seemed to be the energy we’ve seen from Ryall in the past and she didn’t appear quite as amped up as usual in her routine round. She has a number of strength moves but they didn’t quite have the snap and crispness she’s capable of. The judges scored her routine the third best in the lineup.

Rounding out the money spots, in sixth place was Marta Aguiar from Uruguay. Marta has the potential to be one of the top competitors in the division. When she refines her physique just a bit and adds a few more strength moves to her routine you’ll see her move up into the top three. I like the look she brought to the stage and the potential she has. An impressive pro debut for Marta after competing as an amateur in this year’s Arnold in Columbus, Ohio.

Another competitor to keep your eye on in the future is Melinda Szabo. She needs a bit of refining on her physique and just a few minor tweaks to her routine’s flow but overall she stands out. I would have had Melinda in the top 6 but she finished in 8th. I like her look, great energy on stage and she has fun.
