Imagine winning pro shows and placing in the top 6 at the Ms Olympia in your 50s. :respect:

Betty is around 3 weeks out from the IFBB Phoenix Pro and 5 weeks out from the Ms International in this photo......................

Betty looks great! :respect:

Sometimes the word "icon" is overused in the sport, but not when you talk about Betty. Entering her mid-50s and still kicking butt in shows qualifies you as a future IFBB hall-of-famer in my book. :awesome:

I don't think I've ever really looked forward to the women's pro shows as much as I do this year. I love Betty!

Another thing about Betty is she loves to compete. I am not sure how many shows she did last year but I think it was 4(?)at least. She is an energizer bunny. LOL Talk about age not being a factor. You go girl!!:respect:

Betty didn't compete at the Ms International last year.

She competed in three shows, New York, Tampa & Ms Olympia. :)

I see a winner :)

Betty is always at her best. I really think its awesome that Betty and Ed are sharing photos with us and teasing us of course :)

You don't see a lot of your TOP female IFBB pros doing this. I think its cool that she is keeping us posted. Keep it coming, * RESPECT* :)

I predict that we are going to see Betty at the best we have ever seen her in Az and in the Ms. International. :)
Go Betty

Have their been any male pros over 50 who have won an open show like Betty & Lisa Aukland have? Any male pros over 50 who have placed in the top 10 at the Olympia and Arnold?

I don't think there's been any since the masters Mr Olympia was discontinued in 2003. Perhaps they can't hang with the younger pro's. I don't know.

I've been following Gary Strydom a bit, and I know he hasn't been wanting to compete because of the mass game that has been going on in bodybuilding leading to distended bellies, un-aesthetic looks etc. He made a comeback in 2006 after being away from the stage for 10years. He might be competing this year:

More info on Strydom:

I think it's a shame that the masters Olympia discontinued. I loved watching the great physiques of the likes of Vince Taylor and Robbie Robinson.

Imagine if we could have a line-up with all the past champions such as Dorian Yates, Flex Wheeler, Shawn ray, Lee Labrada, Rich Gaspari :respect:

I'd love to see Tom Platz compete as well! Humongous legs!

The old boys dream team! LOL

It would have been cool to see Strydom on stage again. To bad it did not happen.
