Results Episode—Shreveport to New York

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last entry—I confess. Nothing like cross-country travel plus family to bring a knockout bug when you get home. Lots has happened in the world of women’s physique competition of all sizes since my trip to Pittsburgh.

At the Optimum Nutrition Classic on May 12 in Shreveport, Louisiana, Monica Specking, the ’10 NPC National champ, found the right formula after a couple of seasons of ups and downs to nail her first win—but just barely. Runner-up Jami DeBernard was only a point behind in the tough 10-woman lineup.

A week later at New York Pro on May 18, Candice Keene and India Paulino picked up another win each in figure and bikini, respectively, but the big story was the entry—and victory—of former figure athlete Julianna Malacarne in women’s physique. The Brazilian-born Malacarne, a shapely mesomorph who was everyone’s ideal of a too-big-for-figure/perfect-for-physique competitor, walked onstage in her very first effort at posing and proved everyone right. Twenty-nine women hit the stage at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center in what proved to be the most competitive pro women’s physique contest of the new sport’s first season. More up-and-coming talent, Teresita Morales and Penpraghai Tiangnok, took second and third, respectively. Check out the complete results below; the list of athletes who tied for 16th was impressive.
