Australian Grand Prix pics

Here's some action from the Melbourne Grand Prix held in Melbourne on 14 March. In the end, 9 Pros competed at the event including our very own young gun Grant Pieterse. 

Probably it was already a forgone conclusion that Kai would take out the Australian Title to go with his Arnold Classic win. Final results were: Kai Green 1st, Silvio Samuel 2nd, Toney Freeman 3rd, Mike Kefalianos 4th, Ivan Sadek 5th.  Also competed: Rusty Jeffers, Grant Pieterse, Con Demetriou, Oscar Tua Dexter.

The Girls,
Rhonda Bryers was in a class of 2 in the figure class - which Rhonda won.  While Helen took out the physique title against fellow kiwi Jenny Morris - again it was a class of 2.  Where were the Aussie Girls??!  maybe they knew the kiwis were coming and piked out!!  Figure pics courtesy Vicki Hansen at Physique girls pics courtesy Allen Stubbington.

Here are pics from the NABBA Souther Hemisphere Champs held on 24 May. Kiwi Lucie Thompson placed 3rd in a tough line up of 8 physique girls.  She said she was very happy with her placing since the girls on stage had alot more years of training under their belt.  Well done Lucie!

Thanks to the Stubbingtons for the pics. We had quite a mission downloading them but here they are. Enjoy.

Iron Mike Memorial Award : Matt Nicholson

It looks like being another great show.
Competitor numbers are up and ticket enquiries are stronger than ever.
This year’s show will have something for everybody I think.

• Dust off your moccasins and get out your black T-shirts - Australia’s best AC-DC tribute band “Thunderstruck” will open the show with a couple of classic Acca-Dacca hits.
• Mr “Freestyler” himself, posing superstar Michael Faba will be our special Guest Poser. Wait until you see his routine.
• Nick Jones and Charlie Duca will do a 2hr “FREE” seminar before the show. 11.30am – 1.30pm. Everyone is welcome.
• My good mate Vin is donating yet another amazing “Fully Framed” lucky door prize. In keeping with the AC-DC theme it will be a massive “one-off” collector’s item frame valued at over $1,000. Entry is free with every seat purchased.
• Tanman has purchased a $600 Seiko watch to give away for the “Iron Mike Memorial Medallion”. This is for the competitor who epitomises the true spirit of Aussie bodybuilding. This is a regular tribute that is in memory of Iron Mike.
• The CCI is an official fund-raising event for Breast Cancer Australia. We are honoured to be able to do this and ask that you bring a few spare $$$ and support this worthy cause.
• The Men’s Open Winner will be featured on the cover of HCAM along with a 7 page interview.
• All the usual prizes, medallions and Championship Belt will be on again as well as our unique lighting and stage theatrics.
• The After-Party is a great chance to catch up with everyone after the show, so I hope to see you all there.
