Here are some photos from the judging last night at the ’09 Atlantic City Pro, fitness, women’s bodybuilding and masters figure, courtesy of Jersey photog Reg Bradford. More from the open figure event and the finals tomorrow.
Fitness callout (from left): Bethany Wagner, Tanji Johnson, Tracey Greenwood and Tonya Burkhardt. From this view, I could see Tanji giving defending champ Tracey a run for her money—at least in the body rounds.
Women’s callout (from left): Nicole Ball, Kristy Hawkins, Lisa Aukland, Brenda Raganot and Klaudia Larson. Presenting her best condition in a long time, Raganot will make sure that Lisa doesn’t have an easy time defending her title. Ditto for a much improved Nicole Ball.
I couldn’t resist including the rear view. Look at those backs!
Masters figure (from left): Petra Mertl. Tivisay Briceno, Shannon Meteraud and Melissa Frabbiele. Also making the large first callout: Marie Ann Newman and a returning bod froom the past, Italy’s Christina Casoni.
