Weighing in at the Convention Center
Thousands were in attendance to meet the Olympian and visit the many booths that were giving out samples of energy drinks and energy bars. A favorite booth was Ronnie Coleman’s where long lines formed through out the day just waiting to meet Ronnie.
There were a lot of other competitions going on and the ETT Sumo Challenge was one of them.

The women also took the stage for the FLEX Magazine Bikini Model Search.
In competition were Figure Olympia, Fitness Olympia and Ms. Olympia. The bodies were beautiful and awesome. The women are 100% committed to their bodies and their health and are to be acknowledged for their hard work and commitment.

Iris Kyle Ms. Olympia 2011
Monique Jones placed 9th in Ms. Olympia. I had a chance to sit and talk with her on opening night at the Orleans arena, as the fans waited in long lines to talk to their idols. One such fan was Kyle Kroll, a Police Capt. in South Orange, N.J., who I might say had a terrific body, was mesmerized by Monique. She is from Greenville, S.C. and has been involved fitness since she was 16 years old.

It was an exciting week end walking among all the Olympians and admiring their perfect bodies. It was just as exciting for them to take the stage and show us what they have.
