    [http://www.hardbody.com/ HardBody.com] har alltid den senaste informationen och nyheterna om kvinnlig fitness, figure och bodybuilding. Här är ett nyligt inlägg från [http://www.hardbody.com/news/ deras blogg]:

    The New Zealand Pro show was slated to have a figure competition this year however the show has been removed from the IFBB Pro League schedule. The site notes that the show may be rescheduled to a later date in 2009. We’ll keep you posted if the show is in fact rescheduled at a later date.

    Lite mer om detta i australianbodybuilding.com

    We posted about it earlier, and it’s now official – the 2009 IFBB New Zealand South Pacific Show is cancelled something many of us assumed was well on the way. Although this website’s email to the promoter has not been returned, we’ve confirmed the cancellation with other sources and the IFBB site has confirmed it in a roundabout method by posting “the 2009 New Zealand show may be rescheduled to another date”.

    This website generally tries to be positive and promote Southern Hemisphere physique contests and competitors, but we really do have to say in our opinion the ball was dropped here. There was actually no word of any cancellation, our efforts to obtain information earlier were not assisted, and note we were the first website to publically post that the show was cancelled two days ago so hence brought it to public attention. Realistically, if the logistics weren’t working – a release announcing the cancellation would have been in order, instead of just leaving it up to potential competitors and fans to “casually notice” the show was removed from the IFBB calendar on site.

    At the risk of sounding wholly negative, this also doesn’t bode well for a show to be held later this year.

    The distance alone of Australia and New Zealand makes it somewhat cost prohibitive for many competitors and adds a unique difficulty that North American promoters don’t have to factor in. The success of last years New Zealand Pro show was largely in part to the timing ‘piggybacking’ on the Australian Pro Show, so the competitors could easily do both shows. Also, now with a history of a rather late cancellation, people may be skeptical to make certain plans to compete. All these factors and more – we think it is very unlikely to see a NZ pro bdybuilding and figure show coming to fruition in 2009.

    The show was scheduled to be held in March in Auckland, and appears to have been cancelled with about 60 days notice.
