Marika has been competing for over 15 years (her first Swedish Nationals was in 1992). She turned pro in 2005, and soon after competed in her first pro show which was the 2005 IFBB Europa Super Show (http://www.hardfitness.com/europa2005.html).

She brought incredible conditioning to the stage a year later at the 2006 IFBB Europa Super Show (http://www.hardfitness.com/europa2006.html)...

Marika was at the 2008 Arnold.

She interviewed many of the female competitors backstage for Bodybuilding.com (http://www.bodybuilding.com/)...

She also interviewed pro Vicki Gates, who is an IFBB Pro Judge...

I tried to get to talk to her and get a picture while at the AC Expo, but she apparently wasn't interested-either that or she was busy working for BB.com. Her conditioning is truly amazing, but apparently it's not what the IFBB is looking for. Remember the 2006 Europa?? Even the male bodybuilders commented on how impressed they were at how amazingly conditioned Marika was, and yet despite being in incredible shape she was slapped with 14th place!!! The reason?? Apparently "too defined!!" LOL!!! Sheesh, you would think they would REWARD that sort of thing. This is BODYBUILDING after all. She did much better at the recent Europa (5th place) but she also wasn't nearly as ripped and shredded as she was in '06.

I am so sorry I was not able to talk to you or to take the picture. I was pulled away by the crew and my husband for that matter to go to an interview I had to make and it was so hard to go through the crowd in the expo. I wish I had more time this weekend but I actually hardly had any chance to speak to my beloved fans and friends. I owe you a picture now;).
I hope to see you on another show soon again. Thanks for your nice words about me. :) I was well surprised too that I was placed 5th last year since I wasn't too happy with my condition at all. It wasn't me. I know now what I need to do and what I want to look like so look out for me next year;)

No problems here, Marika. I saw the clips of some of the interviews you were doing, and I figured judging from those interviews they was the reason why. As to that picture, if you're planning on heading to Jr. Nationals too there's another chance for one!!:D You're very welcome about the comments, and welcome to Sioux's forum board!!! :waving: I can't wait to see Marika "The Freaka" grace the stage yet again soon!!! :respect: :respect:

Another nice fine! :cool:

[ Q ] How has training been different for you as you prepare for the 2009 New York Pro compared to other competitions?

I started doing Hany Rambod's FST-7 training program when my diet started with my husband, Kris since Haney introduced Kris to try it. It has worked very well and has given me a much fuller look with more rounder muscle bellies.

Even though my weight is the same, I look much bigger for it. I also did more drop sets and reps to failure to really fatigue the muscle in the closing weeks. These look to be new photos of Marika!.......

Hejsan Marika.
Så kul du är här :)

It's really nice to see more fellow BB here. I've just switched from bodyfitness to BB and now have Helle Nielsen as my coach (I'm original from Denmark - I now live in Sweden)

You are (and have been for a long time) one of the girls I really admire. Thanks for being a great inspiration.
