2011 NPC Pittsburgh Championships & IFBB Pittsburgh Pro Figure and Bikini!

May 4, 2011


This weekend everyone who’s anyone in the bodybuilding world is heading to Pittsburgh for Jim Manion’s NPC Pittsburgh Championships and the IFBB Pittsburgh Pro Figure and Pro Bikini Championships. 15 figure pros and 18 bikini pros will take the stage and both line-ups feature top Olympia caliber competitors. The NPC contest is notoriously a stepping stone for top national competitors. Many pro cards have later been awarded to Pittsburgh champions and for the women, many will be pros by the end of this year!

In pro figure, Cheryl Brown will be looking for her second win in a row, but it will not be easy. Alicia Harris will look to be in top form after a disappointing Figure International. And of course there is always a strong possibility for a new face to make some waves!

The pro bikini division features one of the deepest line-ups we might see all year. Jaime Baird is hot off a second place finish in Orlando and Ali Rosen is looking to get back to the form she displayed in 2010. Also look for names like Jessica Jessie, Missy Coles, and Justine Munroe who will all be trying to secure Olympia qualifications.

If all this isnt enough, the guest posing line up features Phil Heath, Kai Greene, Jay Cutler, Branch Warren, Dexter Jackson, and Victor Martinez. This group accounts for 5 Mr Olympia titles and 10 Arnold Classic titles!

FLEXonline will be live for all of the action. All weekend we will be updating a special video blog! On Saturday, there will be a live play-by-play on the FLEXonline homepage, complete contest galleries, video wrap-ups, contest reports, and constant updates and photos via Twitter!

Don’t miss the FLEXonline video of all the guest posers – this is your free Olympia preview! It will be available SATURDAY NIGHT!
