Today's New York Pro show has the distinction of being the largest one in IFBB history, with 134 competitors in Bodybuilding, Physique, Figure and Bikini. The results were a surprise to some, yet predicted by others as Mamdouh Elssiaby, Jose Raymond, Candice Keene, Yeshaira Robles, Juliana Malacarne and Sadik Hadzovik won their respective divisions here in Tribeca, New York.

In the Men Open Class, many of us held out hope for Victor Martinez as he stepped back on stage after taking some time away from training and also nursed an arm injury. There was also talk of Cedric McMillan rallying for the title the second year in a row after some bad luck down in Brazil earlier this season. Alas, no one saw the Egyptian mass monster coming by way of Kuwait. Who would have thought a man weighing over 288 lbs could step on stage full, conditioned and sporting an 8-pack? Elssbiay aka 'Big Ramy' easily walked away with his first professional win. The icing on the cake was that shortly before Big Ramy's win, his wife had just given birth to a little girl.

Special shout out to IFBB Pro Juan Morel who gave 110% for this competition. Hometown favorite Delarosa came in the biggest ever looking relaxed and comfortable on the night of what had to be the toughest competition yet of his career. Clarence DeVis jumped up from the 212 class to compete with the big boys. One of the shortest in the open class, this new found Giant Killer managed to break the top 5 with a massive frame and full muscle bellies.

The surprise of the day came in the form of Jose Raymond's last minute entry. Almost as surprising was Kevin English's no show. In an intense competition, Jose Raymond prevailed over the aesthetic Sami Alhaddad and Mark Dugdale.
