All the familiar faces and bodies came out to surprise us at the first NABBA comp of the year, NABBA Auckland Champs on 3 May. Out of the woodworks came the girls Lisa Bellingham, Naera Johnson, Tarren McCall and Rachel Radich who were all in great condition so we were in for a treat as the girls battled in their various classes.

Seemed there were slightly more girls than guys in this show and the novice figure classes had some great potential amongst them. In the novice figure short, Fiona ( a Mum to a 14mth old and 2 year old) was in super condition. While there was a good class of 4 tall lean timbers in the Novice Figure Tall class. We would say it was a close call between PK and Emma but it was Emma who just took out that class.  Not bad considering PK was struck with kidney infection a couple of weeks ago.

The physique classes also presented the judges with some thinking to do. The senior 35 physique class saw Sarah Su just outmuscle Wendy Sole and Carol Gooch to take out first place.  While the senior 45 physique class was a delight for muscle lovers with Tarren McCall (who did Sen Fig last year) up against the return of ultra muscular Rachel Radich who asn't competed for a few years.  These ladies were in full, lean and detailed condition but it was Tarren who probably just pipped Rachel for the class.  Naera Johnson returned to stage with eyes fully focused on going hard for the Worlds in 6 weeks. She's got plenty of muscle this year so good luck to Naera with her training. 

So when the battle for the Overalls  arrived, it was a pleasure to see the showdown between Naera, Tarren, Sarah and Wendy Rowe, all that muscle on stage got the crowd enthralled but in the end it was Tarren and her camouflage bikini that won over the judges to take the Overall title.

What can we say about Lisa Bellingham? She came in great shape as always and with her usual ' glamazon' polish. Lisa looked much tighter and muscles looked fuller than previous years..and with a set of abs.  Yes I noticed Lis!  However, she was going to have tough competition from PK and Fiona as they were in pretty good shape too. They all posed their butts off but it was Big L who took out the overall, to go with the one she won earlier this year.  Lisa's now off to compete in a NABBA comp in Melbourne 10 May, good luck!

Guys were thin on the ground this year so it was good to see the ever conditioned Tom Wojick pumping up backstage.  Tom's been tinkering with his final diet contest prep and with great results as he's come in fuller with much deeper striations this year, so obviously his timing worked out great and he walked away with the overall Athletic Title. 


Weren't too many physique guys around but a couple did catch my eye.  A teenager in the Junior boys class has awesome muscle mass and definition, his aunts tell me he used to do lots of running so hopefully he'll stop in the gym for a while now as he has great potential.  An ex Junior, Nolan Smith, towered over everybody with his 6'4" frame and muscle balance to take out the overall physique title.  Welcome to the big boys Nolan!

Thanks to Peter Hardwick for putting on a great show.  I'm sure the athletes enjoyed their prizes and the relaxed atmosphere of the comp.   Look forward to seeing you all at the next show with your great bods and smiling faces!
