Not a bad end-of-the-year run for new figure pro Mindi Smith. First, Smith won overall at the NPC Sacramento on November 7th, next she took overall at the 2009 NPC Nationals — earning her pro card in the process.

"This was my first national show and it worked out perfectly," Smith said. "I've put in a lot of hard work and dedication to get here, plus I work a full-time job; it was overwhelming for me, but I did it."

Filling in the final four slots after winning their respective class were 2008 FLEX Bikini Model Search winner Kathleen Tesori, Holly Beck, Taylor Gallagher and Kimberle Trowbridge.

In the bikini class, budgeting time to train while serving in the Navy full time has paid off for new IFBB Pro League Bikini competitor Jessica Anderson.

Anderson, the first-ever overall winner in the bikini class at the NPC Nationals, now gets the prestigious honor of being flown to Los Angeles for a photo shoot with the potential to land on the cover of Muscle & Fitness Hers magazine.

"I wasn't expecting this at all," she said. "I made first callout and was moved around to where I thought I would place fourth or fifth... And now I'm just looking forward to competing in the IFBB."

Rounding out the top five were class winners and new IFBB pros: FLEX Bikini Model Search contestant Tianna Ta, Trina Goosby, Alea Suarez, and Stefanie Lindsey.

In women's bodybuilding, Kris Murrell walked out with the overall victory — nine years after taking the stage for the first time.

"It's a huge shock," Murrell said. "Winning my class I could see, but overall is like — wow."

Murrell beat out a competitive crew consisting of Nicole Berg, Lisette Acevedo and Lori Steele.
