It was a very exciting morning! Today was the prejudging for the Worlds. After getting a coat of Jan Tana on after my two coats of Elite Tan last night I was ready to head to the auditorium. We snapped a few pics in the room before leaving.
The prejudging was held in a beautiful ballroom in the Sheraton Hotel.
My Brazilain friends from Probiotica are the main show sponsor.
Sam Lewis made the top 15 in the Batamweight class and will surely place top 10, if not top 6. Kelly Pettiford did not make the cut to the top 15 in the Lightweight class despite looking incredible at 154 lbs. I made the top 15 in the Welterweight class. I was by far the oldest and the tallest man in my weight class. I’m in easily my best condition of the year and perhaps the last 5 years, but it would be a miracle if I made the top 5. The top guys in this class are probably 5’1 to 5’3″ and very very thick! I made 3 or 4 callouts which was very good, so I’m hoping to finish solidly in the top 10.
Wendell Floyd was in an amazingly tough Light Heavyweight class and failed to make the top 15 cut.
Tomorrow we find out if me or Sam made the finals (top 6). Keep your fingers cossed for us!
Below I’m with our Canadian friend Denis Pedneault. Denis looked fantatstic in the Batams and will surely be top 5.
