I’m finally going to get to meetJarka Lorie Schneider—and thank her for the wonderful time I had at the ’98 Ms. Olympia, which she promoted in Prague, Czech Republic, and which I was fortunate enough to cover. It was a fabulous weekend, and Jarka wined us and dined us; however, she was not actually present in Prague and was directing the action from this side of the Atlantic. Now she’s putting on another fab weekend, the IFBB Pro World Masters competition and Florida Pro Bikini, which will be rockin’ the Fillmore Theater in Miami this Saturday, December 10, and I have to admit, I was wishing I could go. So when Jay Hammett of BODTV ask if I’d like to go to come on down to help with the video coverage of Jarka’s big gathering of bodybuilding talent and history, I jumped at the chance.
The Return of the Legends will* be crammed full of legends both in and out of the lineup. Guests of honor: Lee Haney, Frank Zane and Lou Ferrigno—and they tell me the Big Nasty, Mr. Ronnie Coleman will be in the house. A pro seminar with Dorian Yates and star posing from Robby Robinson, Juliette Bergmann, Vince Taylor and Andy Hamm are on the program. Shawn Ray will do the master of ceremonies honors, and he’s bringing his talented young daughter, Asia Monet Ray, who will also guest pose. (In case you’ve never seen the six-year-old dynamo in motion, she who could probably blow away the Fitness Olympia lineup.)
With $240,000 up for grabs in the masters show and a $20,000 total purse for bikini, the contests have attracted top talent, with Dexter Jackson, Toney Freeman, Troy Alves and Tricky Jackson standing out on the masters list, along with some of my old faves like Darrem Charles and Pavel Jablonicky.
India Paulino, Missy Coles, Juliana Danielle, Tianna Ta and Brittany Tacy are among the attention getters who’ll do the bikini contest. You can find the updated lineups at [http://www.IFBBPro.com http://www.IFBBPro.com].
Look for me on the red carpet, interviewing one and all* before the finals, not to mention at the press conference, VIP reception, Meet the Pros session, awards banquet and the contests themselves. Whew, I’d better get packing.
If you’re going to be in south Florida this weekend, you’ll definitely want check it out. For tickets—or more info: [http://www.jarkasgym.com http://www.jarkasgym.com].

Här är ett nyligt inlägg från [http://www.hardbody.com/news/ deras blogg]:Quote:The final IFBB Pro show is just days away and it’s shaping up to be a hotter than the Miami temps. This weekend several IFBB Pro Bikini competitors will share the stage with some of bodybuilding’s biggest legends. Despite the name of the show being ”World Masters” don’t be confused – the women are not master’s competitors. The favorite on many people’s predictions (until a weekend ago) was third place Olympia finisher, Dianna Dahlgren. She has since withdrawn from the competition due to illness.
[img=http://www.hardbody.com/news/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/preview-poll-florida.jpg]A case could be made for a number of women in this line up to crack the top three. This show is significant because it is the last show where the top three women will be qualified to compete in the 2012 Olympia. Next year a new rule has be adopted where only the first place finisher will be qualified to compete in the Olympia. So who will crack the top three and get a piece of the $20,000 purse? Let’s break it down.

Sedan 1995 har Ron Avidan postat bodybuildingnyheter på [http://www.getbig.com/ getbig.com]. Här är ett nyligt inlägg från [http://www.getbig.com/headlines/ GETBIG Headlines]:Quote:The 2011 IFBB Pro World Masters Champions was billed as the ‘Return of the Legends’ in which the bodybuilding community and the world would see some of the biggest names in bodybuilding return to the stage for an impressive $240,000 in prize money ($220,000 for mens bodybuilding, and $20,00 for women’s bikini).
While that was a great idea, alas, it was not meant to be. Some of the legends will be there, but not on stage. Shawn Ray has elected to emcee the contest, while Ronnie Coleman will be there in the audience, as well as Lou Ferrigno.
[img=http://www.getbig.com/headlines/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/legendsshow.jpg]Other bodybuilders that are coming to the event will be Larry Scott, the first Mr. Olympia champion, who will be receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award . The Evolution of Bodybuilding, a new documentary movie that Shawn Ray is the host of, will premiere a trailer here at the contest, and quite a few other surprises and guests will be arriving to Miami Beach.

Följande postades nyss på [http://www.ironmanmagazine.com/blogs/ruth hennes blogg hos Iron Man Magazine]:Quote:[http://www.ironmanmagazine.com/blogs/ruth/wp-content/uploads/WProMast0327-2.jpg [img=http://www.ironmanmagazine.com/blogs/ruth/wp-content/uploads/WProMast0327-2.jpg]]Photo (from left): Jennifer Chapman, Tianna Ta, Jarka Lorie Schneider, India Paulino, Julianna Danielle and Heather Nappi.
Congratulations to India Paulino, who capped a huge competition year with two big wins, including her unanimous victory at the Florida Pro Bikini in Miami on Saturday, December 10. Earning her pro card at the Junior Nationals in June, Paulino has been pretty consistent all season. Once again she was sporting just the right combination of conditioning and sass—not to much, not too little on the former; playful and plentiful on the latter—and she was the clear winner from the time the contestants took the stage.
Held in conjunction with the World Pro Masters Championship, the very last contest of the year attracted a lively lineup of 15 hoping to score big in what may have been the last top-three Olympia qualifier ever thanks to stricter rules going into effect in 2012. Getting the nod were runner-up Tianna Ta and third-placer Julianna Danielle, both of whom were thrilled that they’d decided to do the show, which took place at the Fillmore at the Jackie Gleason Theater, the scene of the recent ’11 NPC Nationals.
Returning to that stage after earning her card at the Nationals—and looking spectacular—was Jennifer Chapman, who pulled a fourth-place finish in her pro debut, while Heather Nappi stride ‘n’ snappied her way into fifth.
Interesting note: Neither Chapman nor Nappi made the first callout, but by the end of the judging, the judges had moved them into the top group. That meant that a couple of gals who did make the first round of comparisons, Yeshaira Robles and Brittany Tacy, had to settle for sixth and seventh, respectively.
Thanks to promoter Jarka Lorie Schneider, who pulled off a fabulous weekend anchored by the Return of the Legends-Pro World Masters event. The festivities also included a press conference, meet the athletes and a wonderful postcontest banquet. I was glad I got to make trip to work with BODTV.
