Nicole Wilkins wins back the Figure O
September 17, 2001
It all started back at the 2010 Figure Olympia, when an ultra-sharp Erin Stern defeated then reigning champion Nicole Wilkins. Now, a year later, the long awaited rematch between figure's top two is over and Nicole Wilkins is now a two-time Figure Olympia winner.
Her classic lines and shape, along with never before seen detailing, particularly in her lower body, proved to be an unbeatable combination. Wilkins, already with three wins this season before regaining the sport's ultimate crown, is in the record books as the first competitor to hold both the Figure O and Figure International titles in the same calendar year, making her the unquestioned queen of her division.
Stern, not as sharp as she was last year, finished runner-up with Ava Cowan in the third spot, Candice Keen in fourth, Theresa Anthony in fifth and Alicia Harris in sixth.
