On the second leg of the kiwi girls roadtrip to the gold coast, some of the girls competed in the WNBF (World Natural Bodybuilding Federation). May as well, since they've worked so hard to get into shape!

This show was run quite differently to the ANB the previous day. Not only was this a one show format but also included class titles that were different too.

There was best body, USA figure and Ms Fit body which is basically figure.

The best body and USA figure include bikini and dress rounds.  While Ms Fitbody had the same poses as normal figure but one slight change in how they pose the side triceps. The triceps is shown in front of body instead of the side.

What I don't understand about this comp is how someone can be in more than one class as obviously the criteria in each class would change what the judges are looking for.  For example, our kiwi babe Niki Taylor competed in USA Figure (she won that!) and Open Figure Tall where she won that too. There was another case where the masters figure also competed in masters physique. Go Figure!!

Our kiwi girls did well and made an impact on the show.  Niki won the USA Figure and Open Fig Tall. Donnette won Best Body. Jacquie Pederson placed 4th in Open Fig Tall. Julie Harris placed 3rd in Master 40+ and 2nd in Lightweight physique. Sheryl Summers won masters 50+ while Lorraine Chester placed 2nd in same class.

This show was probably a tad long with the judges asking for too many comparisons when there might've only been 4 in a class.

Was good to experience another show though and see how another federation does their organisation.

Below are the pics from the show.  Sorry the pics could get a tad confusing as you'll see some athletes in more than one class.
