Another Hit for West Coast Classic!

Thanks to the competitors, sponsors, staff and fans who all contributed in making the 2012 NPC BMR West Coast Classic another big success. Per usual, competitors came from all over the country to hit the Rosemead High stage. Men's Overall winner Monty Rogers flew down from Spokane, WA, while Overall Figure champion (Open and Masters) Monica Labriola ventured all the way from Medina, OH. Las Vegas, NV brought Overall Bikini titlist Desiree Iaconette and Women's Physique winner Stephanie Willes (hubby Don won the 50+). Arizona produced Novice Men's champ Blake Webber (Mesa) and Bam Bridges, the Bikini 35+ winner (Scottsdale). If I missed any other winners from out of state, my apologies.

Make sure to check the thousands of great pictures (and some neat video's, too) at To those moving on to other shows, here's wishing you the best. And, see ya again in 2013!
