Insecond placeKirsty Hall and Angus Bailey (AUS) entertained the crowd with somepolishedposing but it was to be Mandy Knowles and Bradley Cope (AUS) who wouldtakefirst place. Their routine set to Circle Of Lifefrom The Lion King was thebest of the day and with Brads size and Mandyscondition these two looked tobe the clear winners.

Mr Natural Olympia Professionaldivision come on stage to showcasesome serious muscle. The line-up was dominated by the USA team, withAustralia closebehind in the number of competitors. Aussie, Tim Martin made his prodebut at thisshow, placing 5th in a line-up of nine competitors.

MsFitness girls. After threerounds consisting of routine, bikini and dress,Rebecca Tarzia (AUS) was announced the winner.

Junior Mens division.The condition and muscle that these youngguys have is mind blowing. If this is the standard at this point intheircareers, Australian body building definitely has a great future. NathanWallace(AUS) was the clear cut winner. The amount of muscle this guy carriesjust setshim apart from most of the others in his class. He has everything goingforhim; mass, symmetry and great presentation. Maybe he just needs tosmile andenjoy himself a little bit more on stage. His closest competition camefrom ashredded Ben Wortley (AUS) 2nd. Wortley had the best condition but justlackedthe muscle size of Wallace. In third place was Jordon Boddam-Whetham(AUS) whohas quite a nice physique, it was just unfortunate he was up againsttwo of thebest natural juniors in Australia.

MsFigureInternational Open Class 1. Theonly other competitor in this class was thestunning Nicky Jacobson (AUS) who obviously came 2nd. Nicky was a tadtighterthan Bailee but Figure International is all about symmetry andpresentation andthe judges vored Bailees overall package for this class.

Mr Natural Olympia Open Class 1 provedto be controversial. There was some confusion, beauty equipment as INBA allowcompetitors tocompete in both amateur and professional divisions until they acceptprizemoney. The scenario being that Joel Ramintas (AUS) and Thomas Anderson(USA)walked back on stage to compete with the amateurs. Perhaps if theProfessionalclass was at the end of the show it would have been accepted a littlebetter asthese two competitors would appear to competed in the amateur classfirst andthen progress to try their luck in the professional division. Whatappeared toeveryone was two pros stepped back into theamateur ranks. Pros who competewith amateurs have nothing to gain and everything to lose. Which iactlywhat happened in this case. Thomas came 2nd & Ramintas placed3rd, bothwere beaten by amateur Shawn Mason (AUS). Shawn was wide, I mean reallyW-I-D-E!!! His huge back and hard hamstrings, by r his best features,stolethe show. In 4th and 5th place respectively was Glenn Gattellaro (AUS)and MattNicholson (AUS). Both in amazing shape just a little unlucky with thecircumstances.

MensOpen Class 2,witnessed Justin Firgaira (AUS) doing battle with Stan Tautalonoa (NZ)and OwenBatty (AUS). In a class of fifteen quality competitors the top threewereoutstanding. Owen Batty, a rookie to the Natural Olympia did himselfproud andtook third place in a very tough lineup. Batty has great lines and averybalanced physique but when youre up against the likes ofStan The ManTautalonoa and Justin Firgaira, third place is a great achievement.Stan, asalways, had plenty of quality muscle. He really is blessed with anamazingphysique. It was just unlucky for him that Firgaira was a littlesharper, particularlyin the lower body, to take 1st place.

Ms Physique Open Class 2 witha total of 29 competitors. The depthof the field was incredible. The girls standing three lines deepwaiting to bebe judged was an awesome sight. Needless to say there were manychampions inthe midst of all the ladies and without a doubt the judges had theirwork cutout for them. The top three came down to Natalie Braic (AUS) SamAttrill (AUS)and Karla Gambell (AUS). Karla looked to be in her best ever condition.Withher confident stage presence and entertaining routine she looked happytoreceive third place just behind Sam Attrill, 2nd.
