2015 Olympia Point Series Info & Leaders’ Update


2015 IFBB Olympia Point Series
The Olympia Point Series (Officially called the Olympia Qualification Series) is a point-based system that determines qualifiers for all Olympia divisions. The Series awards points to competitors placing 2nd to 5th at IFBB Pro League competitions. At the end of the Qualification season, the five (5) competitors with the highest point totals will qualify to compete at the Olympia. The winner of each competition automatically qualifies and no points are awarded for first place. The top five (5) at the Olympia automatically qualify for the following year. Previous Olympia Winners are qualified to compete as we’ll likely see in a few divisions once the line-ups are announced for the 2015 Olympia.

There are four tiers to IFBB Pro League shows where points are awarded.

Tier 1 – Arnold Classic USA
2nd place – 8 points
3rd place – 7 points
4th place – 6 points
5th place – 5 points

Tier 2 – Arnold Classic Spain, New York Pro & Prague Pro
2nd place – 6 points
3rd place – 5 points
4th place – 4 points
5th place – 3 points

Tier 3 – Arnold Classic Brazil & Australia, Pittsburgh Pro & China Pro
2nd place – 5 points
3rd place – 4 points
4th place – 3 points
5th place – 2 points

Tier 4 – All Other IFBB Pro League Competitions
2nd place – 4 points
3rd place – 3 points
4th place – 2 points
5th place – 1 points

WHO MADE IT IN?
There are only a handful of shows left for IFBB Pro League competitors to qualify for the Olympia. The Olympia Qualification Series has wrapped up for the Men’s 212 and Fitness divisions with others determined in the next two weeks.

212 Men’s Bodybuilding
Tricky Jackson locked in the top spot in the Point Series with 12 points. Aaron Clark’s second place finish at the Texas Pro put him in the second place spot. Ahmad Ahmad and Oliver Adzievski tied with nine points for the third and fourth spot and the final qualifying spot went to Khalid Alomsinawi from Kuwait. Sami Al Haddad will not return to the Olympia stage this year. He will finish in 6th place with 6 points. Thomas Anderson, Derik Farnsworth and John Meadows all narrowly missed out on qualifying as well with five points.

212 Men’s Bodybuilding Olympia Point Series Top 5:
Tricky Jackson – 12
Aaron Clark – 10
Ahmad Ahmad – 9
Oliver Adzievski – 9
Khalid Almohsinawi – 7

Fitness
The Texas Pro helped finalize who would make the cut for the 2015 Fitness Olympia. Marta Aguiar’s third place finish at the Texas Pro put her at the top of the Point Series leader board. Chika Aluka’s second place finish in San Antonio put her in the runner-up point total. Kristine Duba, Danielle Ruban and Allison Either round out the top five point leaders.

Fitness Olympia Point Series Top 5:
Marta Aguiar – 12
Chika Aluka – 11
Kristine Duba – 9
Danielle Ruban – 4
Allison Ethier – 4

FIGURE:
There are two qualifying shows remaining on the IFBB Figure schedule. The Tahoe Pro (August 22) and Europa Atlantic City Pro (August 28-29) will finalize the line-ups. It appears Julie Mayer and Wendy Fortino will get in with 12 and 11 points but with two shows remaining it’s not a lock. I don’t see them falling out of the top 5 spots though and would consider them in. Andrea Cantone looks to be safe with 10 points but with Karen Noorlun and Jennifer Brown with 7 points she could slip a bit. I look for Andrea to be in the Olympia line-up Currently Brittany Campbell, Tamara Sedlack, Chaya Boone and Shalako Berry are in a tie with six points. After the Tahoe Pro the field and the possibilities will be a bit clearer.

UPDATE:Wendy Fortino, Julie Mayer and Andrea Cantone are a lock for the Figure Olympia. There’s a four-way tie for the remaining spots with 7 points. Mathematically there are a number of women who could beat the seven points with a strong finish in Atlantic City.

Figure Olympia Point Series Top Spots: As of August 22, 2015
LOCKED IN:
Wendy Fortino – 13
Julie Mayer – 12
Andrea Cantone – 10

CURRENTLY IN BUT NOT 100%:
Karen Noorlun – 7
Jennifer Brown – 7
Shalako Bradberry – 7
Megan Wyble – 7

COULD SNEAK IN:
Brittany Campbell – 6
Tamara Sedlack – 6
Chaya Boone – 6

COULD GET IN WITH 2nd or 3rd IN ATLANTIC CITY:
Vivien Olah – 4
Maria Garcia – 4
Linda Andrew – 4
Tina Nguyen – 4
Jessica Morgan Canty – 4
Janaina Ferreira – 4
Azaria Glaim – 4
Joan Smith – 4
Andressa Ribeiro – 4

LONG SHOT TO GET IN – ONLY SECOND IN AC GET THIS LIST IN:
Josie Zamora – 3
Carly Starling Horrell – 3
Chiomba Uwasomba – 3
Louise Rogers – 3
Bruna Miyagui -3
Bojana Vasiljevic – 3
Swann Delarosa – 3
Idalia Molina – 3
Rachelle Carter – 3
Maggy Cambronero – 3
Amanda Doherty – 3

BIKINI:
There’s one more Bikini competition remaining on the schedule (August 29th). That said, it’s safe to say Noy Alexander, Francesca Lauren and Angeles Burkeare in the Olympia. Noy currently leads with 15 points and Francesca has 13 for second place. There’s no way those two are not in. Angels Burke is gauranteed a top five spot with 12 points. Christina Fjaere looks to be safe with 11 points and will return to Vegas for her second Olympia.

Sofia Tunisian is currently holding down the fifth place spot with 9 points but that number doesn’t put her safely in the Olympia yet. Mathematically there are a number of women who could bump her out should they finish in second at the last qualifying show. Brittany Taylor and Kenea Yancey could both snag the fifth place spot with a third place or better finish. They are tied with 7 points but would need to beat Sofia’s 9 points to get in. Tatiana Koshman, Lindsey Waters, Cynthia Benoit, Vladimira Krasova, Romina Basualdo and Angelica Dejean are long shots but could potentially get in with a second place finish. Anything less than second and they’re not in. They’d also have to hope that Brittany Taylor and Kenea Yancy finish lower than third.

Bikini Olympia Point Series Top Spots: As of August 21, 2015
Noy Alexander – 15
Francesca Lauren – 13
Angeles Burke – 12
Christina Fjaere – 11
Sofiia Tandilian – 9
Shandy Ortiz – 8
Brittany Taylor – 7
Kenea Yancey – 7
Tatiana Koshman – 6
Lindsey Waters – 6
Cynthia Benoit – 6
Vladimira Krasova – 6
Romina Basualdo – 6
Angelica Teixeira – 6

WOMEN’S PHYSIQUE:
Leonie Rose is a lock with 13 points at the top of the Women’s Physique Point Series. Erica Blockman also looks to be a lock with 11 points. Jennifer Hernandez is safe with 10 points. Those three will get in the Women’s Physique Olympia showdown. After that it’s a tight race for the two remaining spots. Currently, Silvia Alves Fraga and Kristina Dybahl-Farnsworth are tied for fourth. They aren’t safe with their seven points as Mikaila Soto’s second place finish at the Texas Pro puts her within striking distance of a qualification. She currently sits in sixth but don’t be shocked if she heads to Atlantic City next week and gets into the top five. Loana Pula Muttoni and Rachel Baker each have a chance to sneak into the top five as they sit tied with five points. Mathematically, nine other women could get in if they place 2nd in Atlantic City.

Women’s Physique Olympia Point Series Top Spots: As of August 21, 2015
Leonie Rose – 13
Erica Blockman – 11
Jennifer Hernandez – 10
Silvia Alves Fraga – 7
Kristina Dybdahl-Farnsworth – 7
Mikaila Soto – 6
Loana Paula Muttoni – 5
Rachel Baker – 5
Katerina Kyptova – 4
Lise Thexton – 4
Pamela Slemmons – 4
Antoinette Downie – 4
Venus Nguyen – 4
Nathalie Foreau – 4
Eva Pogacnik – 4
Jodi Boam – 4
Reshanna Boswell – 4

MEN’S PHYSIQUE:
Jacke Alvarez and Joseph Lee are a lock for the Olympia Showdown. After that Jake Campus looks like he’ll get in with 12 points. There are two shows remaining on the schedule (both on August 29th) and that will determine the rest of the field. Right now Andre Ferguson and Michael Balan are in the top five but there are a number of competitors that could mathematically knock them out of the top five.

Men’s Physique Olympia Point Series Top Spots: As of August 21, 2015
Jake Alvarez – 16
Joseph Lee – 14
Jake Campus – 12
Andre Ferguson – 11
Michael Balan – 10
Alex Carneiro – 9
Patrick Fulgham – 9
A.J. Shukoori – 8
John Nguyen – 7
Arash Rahbar – 7
Logan Franklin – 7
Geobanny Paula – 6

MEN’S BODYBUILDING
There are two shows remaining and after the Texas Pro finals we’ll have a clearer picture of who could get in. It’s safe to say Victor Martinez and Johnny Jackson are in with 14 points. Branch Warren looks to be a lock with 13 points and is slated to compete at the Atlantic City show (the last remaining qualifier on August 29th). Steve Kuclo is in 4th but is competing in the Texas Pro and undoubtedly will move out of that spot after the show. Justin Compton and Brad Rowe are tied for fourth with 11 points. Compton has announced he won’t compete in the Olympia even if he does qualify. Michael Lockett could move up after Texas as could Robert Piotrkowicz, both are on the outside of the top five but in striking distance with 9 points.

UPDATED – Johnnie Jackson won the Texas Pro, Steve Kuclo finished in second and Robert Piotrkowicz’s third place finish shook things up a bit. If Lockett enters the Atlantic City show and finishes in the top five he will bump Compton and Rowe out of the final spot. If Branch wins next week he’d be out of the point series and Locket, Compton (not competing regardless) and Rowe would be in.

Men’s Bodybuilding Olympia Point Series Top Spots: As of August 22, 2015
Steve Kuclo – 15
Victor Martinez – 14
Branch Warren – 13
Robert Piotrkowicz – 12
Justin Compton – 11
Brad Rowe – 11
Michael Lockett – 11
Evan Centopani – 8
Renaldo Gairy – 8

Amazon.com Named Official Retail Sponsor of the 2015 Olympia


American Media, Inc. Announces Amazon.com as “Official Retail Sponsor” of 2015 Olympia Fitness & Performance Weekend
NEW YORK, August 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – American Media, Inc. (AMI) today announced that Amazon.com would be the official retail sponsor of the world famous Olympia Fitness & Performance weekend in 2015 – which is likely to be the highest attended weekend yet.

The 2015 Olympia Weekend is ‘Presented by’ title sponsor Ultimate Nutrition and will be ‘Brought to you’ by our new official retail sponsor Amazon.com. It consists of the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding competition and the Fitness & Performance Expo. Mr. Olympia offers fans a chance to see the world’s greatest bodybuilders in action. At the Expo, men and women with a passion for health and fitness can discover the latest nutritional supplements and try the newest workout gear. With a record setting 55,000 in attendance and over 1,000 exhibitor booths last year, the event continues to grow as even more fans and brands are expected in 2015. The Expo and competition will be held in Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Convention Center and the Orleans Arena on September 17-20.

The Amazon.com Olympia Fitness & Performance Weekend sponsorship will include a considerable amount of features. For the Mr. Olympia competition, Amazon.com will be the exclusive sponsor of the live video stream, which generated 4 million views last year. And along with Ultimate Nutrition’s logo, the Amazon.com logo will be positioned alongside the official Olympia logo wherever it is displayed at the Orleans Arena and LVCC, including the main stage at the Expo where popular contests such as the Bikini Model Search, Men’s Model Search, Kick Boxing and the Strongman Challenge are held.

“With Amazon being the world’s premier online retailer, we couldn’t think of a better retail sponsor for the Mr. Olympia weekend. Amazon has shown a great appreciation for the sport of bodybuilding and the culture that has grown with it,” said AMI Chairman, CEO and President David Pecker. “This is a win-win for everyone, as Amazon will surely strengthen its presence amongst the fitness community while Olympia gets the ultimate retail sponsor.”

Australia’s Christine Envall won unanimously in the Women’s Bodybuilding competition. There were only seven competitors and it leaves everyone to wonder how much longer will the division be around. When only seven pros show up it’s not a good sign that women’s bodybuilding can survive much longer.

RESULTS: Big Ramy & Bethany Wagner Win at the 2015 Arnold Brazil


2015 Arnold Brazil Results
RESULTS: Big Ramy Wins 2015 Arnold Classic Brazil & Bethany Wagner Fitness International Brazil

Things played out like we thought they would for the most part in the 3rd annual Arnold Classic Brazil and Arnold Fitness International Brazil. In the Fitness competition it was all Bethany. She won the physique round and the routine round to successfully defend her title. She becomes the first two-time Arnold Fitness International Brazil champion. Regiane was a distant third and rounding out the top three was Tanji Johnson.

Big Ramy went home with his first Arnold Classic Cup and won in unanimous fashion. The win has ignited the chatter on can he stand toe to toe with Phil Heath in September at the Olympia? He’s gaining ground but I wouldn’t put him in that conversation just yet. He needs to show consistency in his ability to bring a conditioned physique in more than just one show a year. He has time and tremendous potential though. The win was well deserved as he was the biggest and best on stage today. Cedric McMillan brought arguably his best look and it paid off with a second place finish. Just a few points behind him was Juan Morel who finished second in 2014 at this show but had to settle for third this time around. Victor Martinez was in fourth and the placings for fifth and sixth are still up in the air. Brandon Curry was announced in fifth but on the score cards (which were not added correctly) Toney Freeman was in fifth and not sixth. It’s a four thousand dollar difference between fifth and sixth place. Toney should have 52 points and not 58 as the scoresheet reflects. *An updated scorecard on IFBBPro.com reflects the correct scores – May 31, 2015.

2015 Arnold Brazil Bodybuilding & Fitness Preview Plus Prize Money


2015 Arnold Classic Brazil
The 3rd annual Arnold Classic Brazil will take place on Saturday May 30th in Rio de Janiero. The IFBB Pro portion of the weekend is an invite only competition and it has shaped up to be one the best line-ups of the year. The IFBB Pro League event features Men’s Open Bodybuilding and Fitness. Bethany Wagner, the defending champ, and Ryall Graber the inaugural champ are both in the line up looking to become the first 2x winner in Pro Fitness. The buzz is around Mamdouh “Big Ramy” Elssbiay in the men’s competition but there are a number of competitors who could take the top spot.

2015 ARNOLD FITNESS INTERNATIONAL BRAZIL PREVIEW
Tanji Johnson will be making her first appearance in Brazil and could shake things up in the top spots. It will largely come down to how conditioned she is and be in the top spots for the physique round. Bethany can repeat if she brings a solid routine to the stage. Look for her to go back to the Hot for Teacher routine instead of the Wicked Witch she did at the Arnold in Columbus. It will likely be Bethany, Michelle, Tanji and Ryall to be in the top spots for the physique round if they are all on the A-Game. Regiane has been placing higher in the physique rounds lately but I don’t see it other than she brings better conditioning than most. Ryall has to bring a conditioned physique if she wants to be in the top spots. She’ll likely be in the 3-4 range with her routine score. Regiane Da Silva has shown she’s a threat for a top spot in every show she enters. She will likely score high in the routine round and don’t be shocked if you see her finish in the top three. Marta Aguair has a great routine and if she can move up a bit in the physique portion of the show she could be in the top spots. Michelle Blank is coming off a win and will look to make it two in a row. She’s improved her physique presentation and routine so she could be up in the mix. Ashley Sebera will have her work cut out for her in this line up and may be have to settle with being happy to be there.

2015 ARNOLD CLASSIC BRAZIL MEN’S BODYBUILDING PREVIEW
This show is stacked! The only show with a better line up this year will be the Olympia. While there are only 10 guys in the show, they are ten top notch competitors. It’s not like the 10 we saw in California earlier this month where you’re wondering who was who. These are familiar names that will have the fans following along to see who comes out on top. It’s no secret that Arnold loves Cedric’s physique but Rio hasn’t been the kindest place for McMillan to compete. In the inaugural Arnold Brazil he was disqualified for missing showing up late to the competitor’s meeting and ended up not competing after a bizarre string of events. He’ll be looking for a bit of redemption but will have some tough competition. The biggest guy in the line-up and the one with the most buzz in the industry is Big Ramy. The question that remains for the big guy is will he bring the conditioning it takes to win. He’s working with a new “guru” and that leaves people wondering if they’ll have the right plan the first time working together. We’ve seen Ramy go from a giant water ballon in preview pics before to ripped on stage. He’ll need to be on point to win his first Arnold title. Lionel Beyeke will be looking for a top spot and arguably could have been much higher than his fourth place finish last year at this show. Brandon Curry won the inaugural Arnold Classic Brazil and will look to add another win to his resume. He’ll have a tough time overcoming most guys in this lineup due to their sheer size. Victor Martinez will be the x-factor in this lineup and if he’s conditioning could be the winner, if he’s slightly off you could see him in a 3-5 place spot. One of the seasoned veterans to the stage, Toney Freeman likely won’t be the winner but he’ll show that he can still hang with the younger cats. Last year, Juan Morel was second to Steve Kuclo and is coming off a win at the New York Pro. Look for him to be in the top spots when the dust settles at the finals. Jose Luis Rodriguez won the Arnold Amateur Brazil overall title last year and this will be his pro debut. It’ll be a tough show to make a debut at but he should be able hold his own. Marius Dohne needs to bring an entirely different look than he did to Columbus or he’ll be at the bottom of the pack. He’ll be outsized in this lineup so his only hope will be conditioning to keep him in the top five. Fred Smalls continues to improve his physique but has become known for his smooth moves in his routine. He’ll entertain the crowd at the night show but will need a miracle to be in the top five of this lineup.

2015 IFBB Omaha Pro Competitor Lists & Show Preview


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

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

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

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

UPDATED LISTS ON WEDNESDAY MAY 27th.

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

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

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

2015 IFBB Northern California Pro Bikini


2015 IFBB Northern Cal Bikini
The women of the IFBB Pro Bikini division will be in competition this weekend at the 2015 IFBB Northern Cal. The show currently has 16 women slated to compete with the winner qualifying for the Olympia. There’s no clear cut favorite on the list which should make things interesting to see who will finish on top. Jessica Arevalo, Crystal Rose Matthews and Angela Marquez have all been to the Olympia before and could be the ones to watch this weekend.

The competition takes place in Sacramento, California on Saturday May 30th.
