Dana Linn Bailey Sits Out The Olympia – Launches New Supplement Brand

Dana Linn Bailey
Dana Linn Bailey (DLB as she’s known to her fans) is one of the most popular individuals in the IFBB Pro League. She was the first-ever Women’s Physique Pro and then went on to be crowned the inaugural Women’s Physique Olympia champion. DLB and her husband have created their own empire over in a relatively short time frame. While many “go pro” and seek to have a supplement sponsorship DLB has carved out her own path. Dana did go the traditional route for a short time working with MHP but quickly realized it would be more beneficial to build her own brand. What Dana and Rob have created is fascinating and something that arguably couldn’t be duplicated. They have their own camps, clothing line, Rob’s music, popular Youtube Videos, Road Tour, supplement line and a slew of other things in the works. Dana’s one of the few competitors who has managed to create an income on her own and the stage has little to do with it any more. Sure winning the Olympia didn’t hurt but it’s not the end all – be all for her.

Recently, Dana announced that she would be passing on competing in the Olympia due to a variety of reasons. It’s a smart move on her part and one that will certainly only help enhance the numerous projects she has going.

Dana Linn Bailey Sits Out The Olympia – Launches New Supplement Brand

So thank you all for your understanding and support, and don’t worry … DLB WILL BE BACK!!! I can’t think too far ahead to say what my next contest will be … BUT I will be back onstage, and it will only be that much more exciting!!!!!

– Dana Linn Bailey Sits Out The Olympia – Launches New Supplement Brand

It won’t “take away” any ticket sales to the Women’s Physique competition as it’s held in the Expo Hall of the convention center. Anyone who buys an expo ticket can watch the event. Fans can still see her at the Olympia as she’s recently announced they she will be launching “RUN EVERYTHING LABS“. Earlier this year she released a single supplement called “ONWARD” and now it appears the greater picture is Run Everything Labs with Onward and other products as part of it.

Are you even ready?….. Come see us at both 1249 @runeverythinglabs

If fans are wondering what else she and her team are up to you can check out the most recent video that outlines everything the marketing machine has going on. From their clothing line, supplement line to their own line of gyms. You don’t have to be a fan of her physique to appreciate the hustle and all that the Bailey’s have created.

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

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

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

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
Wendy Fortino – 13
Julie Mayer – 12
Andrea Cantone – 10

Karen Noorlun – 7
Jennifer Brown – 7
Shalako Bradberry – 7
Megan Wyble – 7

Brittany Campbell – 6

Bruna Miyagui -3
Bojana Vasiljevic – 3

Idalia Molina – 3
Rachelle Carter – 3
Maggy Cambronero – 3
Amanda Doherty – 3

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

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

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

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

2014 Olympia Women’s Physique Showdown Results & Scores

2014 Women's Physique Olympia
The 2014 Olympia Women’s Physique Showdown was the second in the history of the division. Last year’s champion Dana Linn Bailey was back to defend her title but came up just short against Brazilian born Juliana Malacarne. Dana Linna Bailey (DLB as the fans refer to her) was a crowd favorite but it was a clear decision in the judges’ eyes that Juliana was the winner.

2014 Figure Olympia Poll, Preview and Predictions

Figure Olympia

The 2014 Figure Olympia is upon us and 20 women will compete for the coveted crown of Figure Olympia champion. Nicole Wilkins will look to make history with a record-setting 4th win. Nicole won her first Olympia title in 2009, finished second in 2010 and reclaimed the title once again in 2011. In 2012 she was relegated to second once again and bounced back last year to claim her third title. The only other woman to win three titles was Davana Medina, so Nicole is in elite company as it is. Candice Keene will look for her first Olympia and is in the best position to upset the champ. Erin Stern was Nicole’s biggest nemesis but she has opted out of competing in this year’s event. There are a number of other women who could give Nicole a run for her money but can beat the champ? We’ll find out soon… Check out the preview of the show on and cast your vote for who you want to see win the Figure Olympia title.

Nathalia Melo on Sitting Out the Bikini Olympia

Nathalia Melo
I was asked by a few people, “why did you leave Nathalia out of your Bikini Olympia predictions?” Well, Nathalia is a very good competitor but it will be tough for her to win her second Olympia title when she’s watching from the audience. I’ve read a variety of comments speculating why Nathalia isn’t competing this year so I decided to go straight to the champ herself and find out what’s up. Check out what Nathalia had to say about sitting out the Olympia, retirement chatter and more. As always, Nathalia is shows her humorous side and why she’s one of the most popular women in the industry whether she’s on stage or not.

Nathalia Melo on Sitting Out the Bikini Olympia

Where ya living these days?
In planes and airports. LOL… Just kidding I am living in Belfas-Northern Ireland.

How often do you travel?
At least twice a month, and since mid-August until a week before Christmas I will be on the road every weekend working for my sponsors, Nutrex Research and Better Bodies. Plus I’m doing my “Nathalia Melo Stage Ready Seminars” and “Melofit Camps”.

Some rumors floating around about you not competing in the Olympia this year. Let’s tackle those…

Are you pregnant?
No… no babies here. Well… I did get a dog, if he can count as a baby. =)

HA! Good one. Are you out of shape and not able to pull it together?
Yup! Been living on cake and ice cream for the past few months. Hahaha… just joking! I better stop it before people think it is true. But, on a serious note now when you are in this industry it is vital that you stay in shape, not necessarily contest shape but at least photo shoot ready. I have been doing shoots for my sponsors and have a few photoshoots lined up for the Olympia weekend. So, no… I didn’t get morbidly obese.

You’ve got jokes.

My decision to not do the Olympia this year started when I had a very bad injury on my back, which was around the time I had to make de decision whether or not I was going to compete at the Olympia. Plus, I have been super busy with my seminars and camps so I am trying to focus more them (I have done seminars and camps in nearly 20 different countries). And to top it all off, I am also planning my wedding. So, with so much going on I thought it would be best to sit out of this one.

You’re planning a wedding soon?
I am wedding planning at the moment. MADNESS!!

So you retired?
No. I am not ready to play Bingo on a daily basis, yet.

HAHA! Now that we got those out of the way…

Will you be at the Olympia and if so where can people see The leader of the Melo Mafia?
I wouldn’t miss the Olympia weekend for anything! I surely will be there! I will be at Nutrex Research and Better Bodies booth on both days, and at booth on Friday.

You’ve been doing lots of seminars. Any of those planned after the Olympia?
Yes. Many of them planned for after the Olympia. In Russia, England, Italy and the U.S. to name a few places.

You’re also part of a book coming out with other champions. What can people expect to find in your profile?
I am pretty freaking excited to be put in a book with so many women who I admire and all the female legends of the Bodybuilding. In my profile I share my workouts, diet and a few tips on things I have learned over the years.

nathalia melo

Lastly, what bit of advice would you have for the rookies competing in the Olympia for the first time?
Enjoy the ride, the moment and be very very very proud of yourself for stepping on that stage. Regardless of your placing, always remember that not many can say that have competed at the Olympia. Oh… and take LOOOOOOADS of pictures backstage, they are such great memories!!

Thanks Nathalia! Follow Nathalia on instagram, Facebook and twitter.

Hardbody Bikini Olympia Poll, Preview and Predictions

2014 Bikini Olympia

The 2014 Bikini Olympia is entering its fifth year of existence. Every year there’s been a new champion crowned. Sonia Gonzales was the first and then Nicole Nagrani. Nathalia Melo won the third crown and last year Ashley Kaltwasser took top honors. So who will it be this year? Will Ashley be the first to repeat or will history repeat itself? We’ll find out next week but one thing is for certain the top six is up for grabs and as we’ve seen in the past anyone can end up in the mix.

See who is in the Olympia, who is sitting out (hint she won the Olympia once) and who the leading contenders are in my preview. Vote for who you want to win the 2014 Bikini Olympia in the poll below.

Bethany’s Hardbody Climb to The Olympia

climb to the olympi

Bethany’s Hardbody Climb to The Olympia
The 2014 Fitness Olympia is quickly approaching and one of the favorites in the contest is Bethany Wagner-Cisternino. The Jersey girl always brings one of the best physiques to the stage and with her always-improving routines, she has a chance to take top honors. Bethany stopped by to give an update heading into this year’s big show in Las Vegas plus she shares a sample workout. Check it out.

Hello Hardbody peeps! I hope everyone had relaxing and successful summer! I wanted to give everyone a quick update on my personal “Climb to the Olympia.” I switched it up from Road to the Olympia, because I began my contest by running Red Rocks and climbing Mount Quandary in Colorado with my good friend Camala Rodriguez-McClure. I believe “the climb” describes my training and preparation more accurately! I challenge myself everyday to get stronger physically and mentally. I’m always moving upward and onward.

I have said this before and I’ll share it again… I learn something new about myself every contest prep. I am learning what “stronger everyday” means to me. I ask myself “how do I put that into action?” For me, it is to focus on my inner voice and truly “listen to my heart.” I want to improve in all roles of my life: a daughter, sister, aunt, wife, friend, teacher, coach, and fitness competitor. I am learning and practicing the value of compassion. Compassion is my new favorite VERB and you should “exercise” it with others and with YOURSELF! It is not as easy as it sounds. Slowly but surely I am climbing to be a more mindful and compassionate person (especially with myself).

Inside the gym is so much easier to achieve “stronger everyday”. I can accomplish “hardbody.” So, for you I have included a back and bicep workout I recently tackled. Back training is a longer day because there are so many muscles of the back! I try to vary wide and close grip exercises. As a general rule I always do one warm-up set and then 3 working sets. Depending on the pump I may drop set the last set to really squeeze and feel the muscle(s) being worked.

1. Seated close grip cable row super-set with wide grip pull ups (unassisted to failure)
2. Barbell T-Bar Row super-set with hammer strength (dual grip) one arm row machine (high/wide grip)
3. Reverse grip lat pull down with no weight low back hyperextensions
4. Close- grip lat pull down (use two separate hand

les) with cable bicep curl
5. DB bicep curl (twist at the top) – 3 drop sets

“Live your Dream. Show Compassion. Create your own Happiness. Follow your Heart.”

See you in 2 weeks!!!


Candice Lewis-Carter Olympia Training

hardbody olympia

We’re just over two weeks out from the Figure Olympia and 7x IFBB Figure Champ Candice Lewis-Carter (she wed in July) gives us a sneak peek. Some “fans” and critics wondered if Candice would be ready because of the wedding and traveling. One look at this video and you’ll see she’s clearly on track. She knows 3 of the top six from last year are sitting out the 2014 Figure Olympia and this is her opportunity to give Nicole Wilkins and Candice Keene a run for their money.

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

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

2014 Olympia Lineups – Find Out Who Qualified

olympia lineups

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

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

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

Leading the Olympia Point Series:
Allison Frahn, 15
Sasha Brown, 12
Krista Dunn, 10
Andrea Calhoun, 10
Julie Mayer, 10

Wendy Fortino, 8
Laurie Green, 7
Monica Labriola, 6
Amanda Doherty, 6

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

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

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.
