Ruth on the Radio—Ms., Fitness and Figure International Predictions

Going out on more limbs than a feline who’s been nipping into the catnip-kush bag, this reporter made her predictions for the season-opening women’s competitions taking place at the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio, February 28 through March 2. The occasion: a monthlong salute to the Ms., Fitness and Figure International lineups on “Living Beautiful Radio,” a weekly women’s-health-and-fitness-oriented talkshow where co-hosts Dr. Z. Catherine Navarro and Nancy Di Nino love to dish the physique sports along with the diet tips.


In other words, Nancy and the doc put a gun, er, microphone, to my head, and here’s what came out. To find out why I made the picks, you’ll have to listen to the replay:

Thanks, ladies! It was a blast!
