hahaha...I took this year off due to "personal" issues....you may have noticed the "ex" comment in my previous post, lol. I walked away from the competition coaching but am still so proud of all the girls and wish them all well and will continue support them all.

Yes, I am anxious to make my comeback next year :) But tonight its all about the athletes in Cleveland :) C'mon Canada! Lets bring back more cards !!

Just getting back home and checking out the action. This has been a crazy lineup for the overall... all the top girls looked awesome and I wouldn't have been mad at any of the girls if they had taken it.
Lavonda isn't a member here (that I know of anyway), so she hasn't gotten a ton of love, but I am so happy she was rewarded here. She is so sweet and has a banging body and I, along with Miss Anne ;), have been rooting for her for awhile. My PERSONAL pick for the two open cards would've been Lavonda and Kat, but she has plenty of time to get it! Great showing from everyone and very few disappointed today!
Thanks ladies for the great coverage. :kiss:

amazing coverage today --- thanks so much!!!!!!! you ladies rock!!!!!

WHOOP WHOOP ---- yep, I called it --- 3 pro cards for canada...... and I called it right.........

fitness pro card - Allison Either --- (long flippin overdue!!!!!!!!!!! bout time!!!)

bodybuilding pro card - Zoa Lindsey ---- (another one that should have had hers 2 weeks ago -- but so glad she toughed out the diet for 2 extra weeks and brought it home tonight!!!!)

Figure pro card - Silvana ---- go tall girls go!!! She rocked it!!!!! she was one of my fav's for a card at canadian nationals --- and na's finally rewarded her for it!!!

Have to mention the other amazing canadian competitors - Sheri Fisher, Jayme Galloway, Tracy Macdonald, and all of the other great ones - sorry, brain is dead, can't list you all --- but some top notch physiques.:respect:

I also wanted to note ---- last year there seemed to be the talk of a huge difference in terms of canadian and american judging - in fact, it always seems to be the topic that comes up............................ and I have to say --- we are finally getting all in line!!!!! Finally all starting to reward the same type of figure look ---- sure, still some apples and oranges comparisons, but I think there always will be, it's figure, hard to find the ideal and always going to be off a little in terms of the different judging line ups..... BUT, I do think that cbbf, npc, and ifbb are getting closer to being on the same page!!!! (SIGN OF RELIEF INSERTED HERE!!!!!!!!!!):D

First of all HUGE THANKS to the coverage. This was the best one ever online! :respect: :respect: :respect:

Then, congrats the new pros! I am quite satisfied with the girls who got the pro card. In figure, real satisfied actually..

Otherwise.. in class D runner up Mona Muresan was otherwise fabulous, unfortunatelly BIG unbalance as skinny legs but when she brings them up, she is GOOD. I liked Allison Moher in that class, and would have had her in TOP 5 definitely - best frames in that class-top. Class C was a disaster...Pam Soper was improved A LOT since USAs but still, upper body looks soooo narrow that it makes her frame look more like A than X and in physique sport that should be a big flaw. Most in this class I liked Rachel LeBlanc, good package, maybe could have had better "definition" in back area.. Over all winner Salvati was good, but I would say winning class E was not easy and in my eyes it could have been Sheri Fisher winning this class - she is phenomenal! Ok, could have been a bit tighter but otherwise reeeeal nice...

Happy for Allison winning Fitness over all and turning pro. Well, she is still "not at all-ready" for pro ranks physique wise but IMO she has made good development in physique since 08 arnold am..

Anyway, hope everyone had good time, next year again, ENJOY post contest meals and first of all - START IMPROVING!

EDIT - after watching comparisons again, I would actually have put in Class F both runner up and 3rd before Salvati. Looking her alone she looked quite OK but compared to these girls her flaws just jumped up...

The SC.com contest coverage was SUPERB! I love you guys!! :kiss: I have to agree with every single winner on this one...I think the judges got it right :) I'm so thrilled for Tammy P finally getting that Pro Card after being so close soooo many times! And Zoa...what more can I say? She's amazing!!!

And Allison Ethier....I've been a huge fan of hers for a long time because she's a true athlete - she consistently goes for the hardest routines out there. Not at all easy to do when you're dieting! I really like her physique too. I don't agree with what the judges in Canada were telling her about how she needed to come in for the Canadian Nationals...I love the way she came in at the Arnold and at this show, and I know she feels she looks better when she's tighter like that too!

Cheryl Brown - Best she's ever looked. She's got some strong legs and you can tell she's really worked to match her upper body with her lower body. Her back is much improved and she's really capped her delts off beautifully. This is the best she's looked, in my opinion, and the color of her suit was just beautiful with her skin tone. Presentation was spot-on!

LaVonda Ezell - What beautiful lines! I think she could do really well as a pro. She's got great balance without being excessively muscular. Her back and her hamstrings...WOW! And perfect posing to really showcase all of this!

Silvana Salvati - Holy cow! I'd never heard of this athlete before and I'm just blow away. Her shoulders kind of remind me of Mary Lado's - just very round and full. Great structure! I think the only thing she would need to do to really kill it as a pro is work a tiny bit more on widening her lats, but that could just be posing, and that's being really picky. She's stunning!!

Tiana Gonzalez - What a friggin cute shape! LOL...just adorable. Beautiful hourglass shape with curves in all the right places. She looked beautiful onstage too! She's going to be a pro, no doubt.

Debra Lavette - Beautiful presentation, great balance. I think she needs to relax her shoulders just a teeny bit on her back pose. That's such a silly, minor little adjustment though. I love her suit choice, and her makeup looks great. Same thing with Tiana - she's gonna be a pro, just a matter of when, but I think sooner rather than later.

Anybody else a little surprised Ann Pratt got 4th? I had her 2nd, at the very lowest 3rd.

Betsey and Shelly - Super thrilled for both of you ladies in your national debuts!!!!! You both looked so beautiful up on stage there! You guys both really held your own out there :)

Pam Soper - So happy she was able to redeem herself after a disappointing USAs! She looked great!

Alison Moyer - So cute! Your hair is friggin adorable out there! Love it! Beautiful presentation, and you moved up 8 places from last yr! :)

Jessica Lawrence, Kat Holmes, Kira Rivera - all 3 of these ladies have become seasoned veterans of the new bikini circuit - seems like Kat in particular was doing every show this season!! Presentation goes such a long way in bikini, but these 3 aced it!

Gillian Risebury - I had never heard of her before this, but she looks tremendous! She's got an athletic physique with curves in all the right places and the silver suit really made her stand out. Excellent stage presentation, and like the other winners in bikini, she kept it classy (no excessive back arch in the bootie shot, etc). Well done!!!

AnneP
08-30-2009, 01:07 PM
Gotta agree about Debra, she looks good but the thing she does with her delts (lifting up) makes her upper body look not as good as it would otherwise be..


BTW ..Always make me smile how subjective this sport is ... and how differently we see all the terms like "great structure", "good proportions", "conditioned" etc...

Hey guys! :waving: I made it back home just a little while ago.

Firstly, THANK YOU GARY UDIT. :respect: I've always known him to be a really nice man and he's just more than that. He made sure I was set up and looked out for me. I on behalf of everyone here thank you for that. It made it even more possible for us to give you all live coverage of the show. All of his shows are run professionally, organized and smoothly. Please show your support for his shows!!

As we discussed the show, the competitors, the judging, etc., in my honest opinion, it was definitely a fairly judged show. Jim Rockwell was the head judge. The caliber of the competition was top notch. I mean it was one amazing physique after another. We had fun discussing what we saw on stage and who we thought would make the first call outs as we provided information to you all. The toughest class the judges had to judge, I would have to say (just my opinion), was the Figure B Open class. But, they were all tough, but that's the one that stood out to me as the hardest to determine the top 5.

Congrats to all you beautiful ladies. I had fun hanging (and working) with Jillian and Leeza :kiss: I :heart: you guys and I'm so glad we all met over a year ago at the Met and have bonded like sisters.

Congrats to Tammy, Zoa, Melody, Michelle Brent. Amazing female bodybuilders. We were so excited for Tammy and calling out her name as loud as we could! :respect:

Congrats to Kat for taking 1st at her first national show. When she finally came back out with trophy in hand and I gave her a big hug, tears came down my face. I'm so proud of her for I know what she went through during prep and the hours she put into her training and cardio. This is one determined woman. :kiss: Te amo mami!

Congrats to Shelly and Betsy who DID present improved physiques with more muscle and shape. :kiss: They worked hard to get more size on and it's such a visible improvement. I'm glad I was there to also see you two at your first natl show and I'm looking forward to Team U.

Congrats to Deb Judy. You are one amazing woman who is so grounded (as we talked about that yesterday) and brings it in even better each time. I was fortunate to have met Deb back in '06 (if I'm not mistaken) at Masters and she has been a friend since. I'm also proud of you and your accomplishments. Can't wait to see you soon. :kiss:

I'm glad I got to meet our Alli and Tiana. Two more beautiful women who I'm looking forward to seeing at Team U. Congrats Tiana for your placing and Alli, your top 5 in my book girl and I know you two will be bringing it to Team U. No doubt.

Ok, I got to see and say hi to so many more like Caroline Hernandez, Janet West, Pam Soper, Debra LaVette (thanks for stopping by girl), Kim Tilden, Trish Manzi to name a few. And of course, it was great meeting everyone who came for the group pic :waving: Can't forget the guys too...RJCleveland, TomNine, Joe, Tre, Detroit, Jeff... the list is endless.

So, I may have left out a few names (Maryann, Celeste, Bill (Michelle's husband), Shelly and Alice who came for the pic (I hope I got your names right - sorry if I didn't)...lots of peeps. It was great to see and meet you all.

Congrats to all you ladies who competed at Gary Udit's IFBB North American Championships!

I hope it was a wonderful experience for all of you!

Our coverage was incredible thanks to Melody, Jillian & Leeza!

Be sure to support Gary Udit and the shows he promotes every year www.garyudit.com

I have a hard job choosing today who goes on our banner. PLEASE don't be offended if you are not on the banner this week. I have only three rows to put our members on.

Thanks to all of you who supported us this weekend by checking out our coverage! :respect:

Good thing you upgraded from two rows. That just isn't enough for all the fab SC members! :cool:

Thanks Mel (and all of the girls helping) for the great coverage and all the time you spent at the show and organizing group photos, taking paparazi pics etc.., I think in the future we should all donate money to help cover the expense of hotel, travel, and show to do this. It cost a lot of money and all of your time there is being dedicated to making SC a great site for all of the members. I for one know that I would put $'s in to help and I have a feeling many of our other members would to. JMIO

Love ya Mel...great job!

Good morning!

What a weekend! We spent yesterday recovering after a whirlwind weekend of tanning, hairspray, makeup and suspense...I feel like I ran a marathon!! :)

A HUGE props to everyone here at Siouxcountry for the live coverage! The girls and I were in my room in between prejudging and finals reading through everything and it really added the excitement of the entire weekend! I know how much hard work it takes to coordinate such a venture and it is truly appreciated!!

Gary Udit ran another AWESOME show....it was so relaxed and non-stressful because everything was smooth and in place. The venue is GREAT and I recommend anyone competing to stay at the host hotel, the convenience was fantastic!

Needless to say, our girls had an UNREAL weekend!! We are truly blessed to have such phenomenal women on our team. I am SO proud of them all, not only for their placings, but because they enjoyed the experience and supported each other every step of the way even though some of them met for the very first time this weekend!

ALL of the competitors were fantastic and this was a VERY tough, deep show with some AWESOME girls! What an awesome sport that brings all of these exceptional women together in one place!

Congratulations to everyone and we will see you in a few weeks in NYC!! :)

-Shannon

Sioux, maybe we can start a thread or something to see how many of our members would be willing to donate or even come up with some ideas on how we can fund that. Mel did an awesome job. Even if we just came up with money for show tickets it would be something. IDK just a thought~

Jill Theobald could be a little tighter, but looks nice. Marcia Ferguson on of the shorter gals, looks good. Pam Franklin could have more color on. Has good caps, nice shape to legs, nice back.

Hey Mel! I'm looking for all feedback. I knew I wasn't going to be fully-conditioned at this show - it was a step along the way to hold lower bodyfat going into Nationals. Still trying to bring up my 44 yr old ass... no small job! :banghead: I did have a great time and was in awe of the competitors in the heavyweight class. Very deep class and obviously the Canadians were packin' heat when they came. Very impressive all around!

Gillian is a member here. :) Congrats Gillian Risebury!

Hey everyone! I just wanted to say what an amazing weekend it was for me in Cleveland! The show was run very smoothly and I met some of the nicest athletes backstage! It was an amazing experience for me and I'm really still in shock! I wanted to say hey to my new NPC bikini friends Vanessa and Danny J who are members of this site and looked phenomenal at the show! There were SO many beautiful ladies competing- it was simply an honor to be a part of it all! As for me, I'm planning to take the rest of this year off to enjoy time with my son Brady who is 18 months old. Then I'm planning to compete in 2010 at the Jr USA and possibly Jr Nationals! Congrats to new bikini pros Jessica, Kat and Kira!

Yay!! Jillian (with a "G") It was so great meeting you and Vanessa and a few other gals (but you two from here)
I had a great time particularly because you were so cool, backstage and afterward!
Congratulations to all the competitors, because every single person had to put in the work to get on that stage, and we should all be proud!

Hey Jill. :waving: You have some really good size on you and I think you can nail it. You have great shape and no doubt you can bring it all to Nationals. I luv that you are 44 too and doing this. :respect: I'm glad you had a great time, that's what it's all about. Wish we had the chance to meet. You stay focused girl and keep pressing on. It will happen. You have many of us here wanting to see you do well! Just remember, you've bought your best before and you will do it again :D
