Just Desserts: Cheryl Caps a Swell Year With a Win in Kentucky

TCM09_3203WbThe 2009 IFBB pro season closed out in Kentucky last night, November 14, with Florida flower Cheryl Brown sewing up her first pro victory. A perfect  10 made Cheryl, who has softened up her physique and rounded up her shoulders since the photo below was taken, the unanimous winner of the three-year old contest. JulieAnn Kulla was the unanimous choice for second—a natural progression from their placings last week in Sacramento, where Cheryl was second and JulieAnn was fourth.

Earning the third-place Olympia qualification—and getting a jump on the new year for the second straight time at this show—was Teresa Anthony. Patricia Mello, third last year, dropped to fourth in this lineup of 20, while Terri Turner, looking fine, cracked the top five in her second pro appearance.

In case you’re counting, that makes 14 ladies who are already qualified for the 2010 Figure Olympia: Nicole Wilkins-Lee, Gina Aliotti, Heather Mae French, Kristal Richardson, Amy Fry, Erin Stern, Gennifer Strobo, Felicia Romero, Kristi Tauti, Krissy Chin and Huong Arcinas, plus Cheryl, JulieAnn Kulla and Teresa.

TCM09_8694WbWith 11 shows to go before Olympia time next year, what are the odds that list is going to grow, exponentially?

Find the complete results from Kentucky below.
