2010 Figure International champ Nicole Wilkins plans to defend her title in 5 weeks.

She lost the Olympia title to Erin Stern in 2010. Erin placed 2nd to Nicole at the 2010 Figure International. Will Erin be like Iris & Adela and dominate both shows now?

Nicole's strength is symmetry, her weakness is conditioning. Maybe all it takes for Nicole to once again be on top is the right condition?

I cannot wait to see what they look like. I'm rooting for my fellow MI girl, Nicole - but I wouldn't be surprised if we have a sleeper in the pack too and someone besides the two of them takes home a top spot. You never know! GO NICOLE!! :cheerleader:

Jennifer Gates!! :awesome:

I agree it depends on what they look like, so hard to decide without seeing them, and also what is judged this year…(lol just saying..;) )

Also another one I think to look out for is someone like Courtney West….

This has to be one of the most exciting Figure Internationals in along time. Traditionally though, the winner of the Olympia goes on to win the International. Erin always comes in the way she believes the judges want her to look. IMO she has both awesome symmetry & conditioning. Very tough to beat. I would not be surprised if she dominates figure for a few years now.

I'm looking forward to all the women bringing there A game and battling for that top 6! :awesome:

I agree with Scarl3tbutt3rfly, if anyone will be a sleeper pick (if you even want to call it that), I'm going with Jennifer Gates, Courtney West, or possibly Ava Cowan.

But to answer the original question, I think is Nicole CAN beat Erin. She's done it before.

Indeed Jennifer could change things up. :)

She last competed at the Figure International in 2008, and placed 2nd to Gina Aliotti.

She went onto beat Gina at the Olympia that same year. Just as Erin two years later went onto beat Nicole.

I agree. I think Erin is going to be winning for awhile. Just dont Know that Nicole will be her closest challenge this year. As stated by a couple already, I think their could be someone else to step up andget into that 2nd spot

Both ladies look great, but it could also be one of the other fine top competitors to take the prize. Also, it really depends on what the judges are looking for that day. I absolutely love Nicoles look & cannot discount any of her achievements, but I do think Erin Sterns conditioning is noticeably better. If the judges really scutinize conditioning / leaness, I think the judges will favor Erin.

I'll go with Nicole just because she's so :lovable: ...how about Candice Keene for a sleeper pick?

X 2 JENNIFER GATES!!! I would love to see her comeback. Personally physique (& Gina's too) are what I believe to be "figure" but who knows....What an exciting Figure International competition !!! Im so excited to see this unfold.

Any of the names mentioned could easily win. Nicole varies more than the others as far as what she brings, but she has some of the best "lines" on stage. I liked the additional size to brought to the Olympia, but hope she can get a little leaner to show it off for the Arnold. Erin, of course, always looks fantastic, but I'm excited to see what Jenn Gates brings!

Coincidentally, Nicole and Erin have the same birthday--today! Meanwhile, I can't wait to see what those two bring to the stage....along with Ava and Jenn Gates who are also a couple of my favs~:popcorn:

Hmm. I don't think Nicole will win this one, BUT Erin may not either. I would put them both in top 6, Erin before Nicole. Im very excited for this Figure International tho! Glad I got my tickets back in December :)

I don't necessarily think Nicole's 'weakness' is lack of conditioning. I think she purposely brings that package. But regardless, I like Erin for the win.

She's a beautiful girl, but I don't believe I've ever seen her truly conditioned.

Both ladies bring the entire package to stage but even if they are at best, I believe we all know it's 'what judges are looking for" which you never know. I have seen some winners that in reality you ask "really?".
I'd still like to see Gina come top 3! I think she always brought in the entire package. :D

Gina isn't competing this year. Maybe someday she'll make a comeback. :)

I would have to give Erin the win...she looked incredible at the O! She nailed her conditioning and her posing really stood out to me as much improved. She was relaxed and poised...all the little details came into play and she derserved that win. From one Tampa girl to another-GO ERIN!! :cheerleader:

Could they be any closer? I think they got it right though. Nicole deserved it. :trophy:
