2012 NPC Nationals
2012 NPC Nationals

November 9-10, 2012

fbb pro nationals kira, rene marven, juanita blainoAtlanta, GA, USA - Original chatter about the show said that there'd be over 1000 competitors but in the end just under 900 athletes took to the stage for a plethora of pro cards.  We focused our attention to the Women's Physique and Women's Bodybuilding competitions and saw two fantastic overall winners in Juanita Blaino in bodybuilding and Toni West in physique.  

West looked outstanding in physique and has amazing shape and proportions.  She could do well in bodybuilding as well, but in physique she looks fantastic.  The other pro cards in physique went to Danielle Reardon, Lindy Waid, Katie Bartlett, Audrey Presson, Jamie Pinder, Asha Hadley and Alisa Alday.  

Reardon won the A Class and has a tremendous physique for such a young competitor.  Her presentation is also a strength and she should do well in the pro ranks too.  Some of the overlooked competitors or ones with good potential that we liked included Katie Bartlett who's upper body was tight and had a good overall look but just needed to be a shade tighter.  Katie Chin also has a nice structure but just needed to be tighter too and Melissa Hong looked ripped.  Probably a bit too much for the judges but we liked what she brought to the stage.  

Toni West IFBB Physique ProJayme Appleman was probably our favorite that placed outside the top ten.  She placed 11th in the C class, but has a striking look with good lines and should have been placed much higher.  Look for her to make the first callout soon.  

In womens bodybuilding we thought all the class winners were deserving and the judges did a great job with the category.  In addition to Blaino, pro cards went to each class winner which included lightweight Crystal Reike, middleweight champ Rene Marven, and light heavyweight winner Kira Neuman.

In the lightweights it was Linda Smith who came in second to Reike and Stefanie Kitner in third who looked amazing and is sure to turn pro soon.  

Marven made a huge splash and dominated the MW class.  With a huge back, thick legs and spot on conditioning, she beat out the impressive Cassie Bates.  Bates, from Frisco, TX was ripped and is another future pro.  Fellow Texan Holly Chambliss took third  followed by the impressive Jolynn Shane who was one of the many protoges of trainer PJ Braun.

In the LHW, former Collegiate National Champion Kira Neuman, who wanted to come in as a MW, swept the judges scorecard scoring a perfect 5 pts to claim the class.  She beat out veteran Karen Choate who looked big and full.  The best glutes in the show belonged to Kristine Mele who took third and has a promising future as well.  Myra Adams has a thick, muscular physique that took her into fourth place just ahead of Jessica Simonet.

In the heavyweights, behind Blaino was a duo of fantastic new faces.  Second was Nikki Stadleman from North Carolina and in third was Susan Smith.  Both had great shape and Smith may have one of the best structures we've seen in a bit.  She could fill out her frame more, quite easily with her height, and should have a bright future.  Fourth went to Dana Richards and the fifth and sixth spots went to veteran national level competitors Sue Scheppele and Tina Zampa respectively.  Zampa wins the award for the most mass and looked amazing, especially from the back.  She was definitely the most muscular bodybuilder in the show.

In the figure classes, a few of the folks we liked that were overlooked included the ripped Laura Foster and Brooke Merritt who was also quite lean. In Class C Hyla Conrad had great presentation on stage with a lot of sass while in D we thought Sarah Pitsch should have placed higher.  Rachael Loftus has a structure we really liked, and when Vanessa Naesheim came out on stage, we thought she immediately had the class title (she ended up in third).  

The final 'overlooked' athlete we wanted to give props too was  Kimberly Duncan of Tampa.
