Bikini Update: Our Story Thus Far

PPro13_10013WbCrSometimes it seems as if the competitive bikini season is one long continuum of hot-physique women playing musical chairs within the upper end of the rankings. Not that that’s a bad thing. It’s just that the results are not always unpredictable. Consider the results of the recent late-spring shows. At the Europa Show of Champions on April 20, it was lean, long-legged Courtney King for the win, with Ashley Kaltwasser taking second, and Aly Veneno landing in third. Two weeks later at the Pittsburgh Pro, with King out of the lineup and Yeshaira Robles in, Robles got the win, Kaltwasser was second again, and Stacey Alexander finished third. Flash forward one more week to the ’IFBB Powerhouse Pro Classic Bikini, which was held in Detroit on May 11, and when I tell you that King, Kaltwasser and Alexander were in the lineup, you’ll know where this story is going. This time it was Ashley K’s turn to notch her first pro victory, with Alexander, who won the late-season Houston Pro last fall to earn her own ticket to the ’13 Bikini Olympia, moving up to second, and King returning to the stage to take third.

These are all gorgeous gals, of course, and never has the phrase, “Any of them could have won, and no one would have complained,” been more true. Eighteen athletes hit the stage for this one. Jessica Renee and Maura Bouchard, in order, moved into the top five to earn their first Olympia-qualifying points.

Next up in bikini: the New York Pro on May 25.
