    When figure division came into the NPC & IFBB, I was not in favor of it. It wasn't "real" bodybuilding, it made contests longer, & it caused bodybuilders (both men & women) to have to cut down the length of their routines. We already had fitness division for the women, why did we need more?

    I changed my mind in 2003 at the Jan Tana Pro Classic & Masters Olympia 2003 (which turned out to be the last of Jan Tana's pro shows, unfortunately). I happened to sit next to a pro figure competitor who had just gotten her card at a Chicago pro qualifier. Speaking with her, I realized that many new opportunities were opening up to her in the industry, & she already had sponsorship (that was why she was there, not to compete but to represent a company). That conversation made me realize the industry was changing for a reason, and I needed a new mindset about it.

    To be honest, I went through the same thing with the bikini division. More people being rushed on and offstage in large classes, even shorter routines for bodybuilders (45 seconds in some shows; usually it's 60 seconds now), marathon weekend events that start at 8:00 a.m. & end by midnight (if you're lucky). Nevertheless, bikini has caught on & is part of the mix now. This thread pays tribute to notable pro bikini competitors.

    Question



    In Dave's profile of Marcia Goncalves, did he say "glute season" or "good season" (at 33 seconds in)?

    Camile Periat

    I asked Evogen to give us a longer video of her. This is way too short.
