Reigning FIgure International champ Zivile Raudoniene has just informed flexonline that she will not compete in the 2009 Figure Olympia. The 27-year-old, who placed third at the 2008 Olympia, was one of the favorites going into September’s show of shows after nabbing the Figure International title this past March in Columbus, Ohio.

Rumors have been circulating for the last few weeks that the Lithuanian beauty may be in line to join the ranks of the WWE. Could her decision to skip her sport’s most prestigious event be related? We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we know, right here on flexonline.

Raudoniene’s absence opens up a number of possible scenarios for a new name to break into the top six, or even the top three at the 2009 Figure Olympia.
