Easily the biggest show of the year, the NABBA Counties attracted 64 athletes in to the cosy Hawkins Theatre in Papakura. In addition to the large sea of athletes, we also saw the prejudging nearly packed out while the night show only standing room was left on the aisles.  So it was a great atmosphere for the athletes to perform in front of the vocal supportive crowd which made the event a memomorable one for all.

From the teenage to the Novice and Open classes, both male and females were in great condition. Teisina Tongi in teenage has made a great change to his ever growing physique and he's made some great gains which we're sure will challenge the open men in the not too distant future.  Marc Thomas looks much more muscular than his junior age group and he could've easily given some of the novices a run for their money.  
Peter Hardwick in his element :)
Fabiany Vecchionacce looked super hot on the eve of her 42nd birthday (hope you don't mind me telling everyone Fabi, but you look amazing!), winning the Shape class.  We could say the same thing to all of the Senior Figure Class! Both the Sen Figure 35 and 45 classes were in great condition and I'm sure the judges worked hard to separate between you all.  Donna Randell's figure was exceptional with great condition and presentation. 

The Open Figure was another great class to watch especially with such seasoned competitors Janine Haywood, Kym Carter and Teneka Hyndman posing down against each other.  Despite giving away a few inches in height, Janine made up for it with her leaner and fuller condition to take out class.

The battle for the Overall Figure was a great one with the main showdown between Donna and Janine.  They matched each other in condition and pose for pose. Later we learned there was only 1 point in it with Janine once again being the 'giant killer' taking the title. 

In the men's classes the highlights would be John Templeton and Craig Smith's ripped physique in the Novice Athletic Tall and Short class respectively.  Rick Uljfalussy was also in great shape with his trademark cross cut quad striations to take out the Overall class.

Kristian Bray continued his winning ways taking out the Novice Physique Tall class. While the Open Men's was a tougher affair. Spencer Hiet showed off the fruits of his labour coming in huge for this show but was beaten by Garth van der Merwe was sharper in his legs. Honorable mention must be given to Sam Koloa who's probably in the best shape he's been this year to come in 3rd amongst the big men.  

I'll go out on a limb and say probably the best condition in this show went to Bev Walton in the Open Physique class. Wow she was lean full and glistening on stage, and ripped to bits.  All the while presenting herself beautifully and loved her hair too.  Nice package Bev, well done!

A very efficient show as usual by Peter Hardwick and his dedicated team. Thanks for letting Go Figure be part of the excitement and sharing the pics with the bodybuilding community!
