That is GREAT, but I wish the IFBB would change another rule, where the next in line qualifies, cause she got hers in NY. Maybe it will be brought up again at the "O" meetings

That would be a great rule change. Why not reward somebody else who doesn't have one.

Congratulations Betty. It's great to see you STILL making improvements. You looked great....big, hard, and dry. Great muscle development all around with no weak points. And the separation in your quads was fantastic. Way to go. :awesome:

I didn't think she would, but I'm so glad she did. Betty is one of my personal favorites, and she did not upset at all. I truly feel she deserved this the most, she looked absolutely amazing, I couldn't spot a weakness on her even if I tried. Age is just a number, and this is just a huge middle finger to anyone who said she wouldn't win because of her age, especially considering she looks at least half her age. Congrats Betty, easily one of the best in the business! :respect::awesome:

That is awesome Betty Pariso won. She is the first and only 50 plus lady to win a pro bodybuilding contest. she is an inspiration to people of all ages. This is siilar to Tom Watson if he would had won the British Open at age 59. She held her own to the younger glamour girls showing she is just as glamours.

Yeah I wish they'd adopt this rule as well so that competitors who are already qualified can compete if they wish, while still giving some of the other gals a chance to qualify.

Isn't it cool that she brought such as great package to the stage and as a side bar to the story like you wrote Sioux she is the first to win at over 50 yrs of age. With female bodybuilding coming of age and so many masters athletes looking so terrific Betty proves to be the positive role model for us all:awesome: (cheering with low cal cerveza of course)

From Betty Pariso:

Siouxcountry

I would like to thank everyone for the congratulations. It was truly a wonderful weekend. This was my 2nd Pro Show win and one that I will cherish. It is always a thrill to stand on stage with some of the best FBB in the world.

I was back at work at 10am on Sunday preparing for the Europa Super Show. I thought I was crazy doing a show a week before my show. But in the end, it was worth the effort that it took to juggle everything in my life.

Again thank you for the nice comments & support.

Betty Pariso
Tampa Pro Winner !
