PBW Tampa Pro Friday Pre-Judging Report

The 2013 PBW tampa Pro event is not only the largest contest of the year, but it is the largest ever with 209 competitors registered to compete Friday and Saturday.

The Women Physique division is the largest division of the weekend with 39 competitors vying for a shot to the first ever Women's Physique Showdown. Crossing over from Figure, Bikini and Bodybuilding, the women of different competitive backgrounds were meshed together to see who has the best physique of them all.

Notably, it was great to see Dana Linn Bailey aka DLB back on the physique stage. I was there when she turned pro and I was there upon her return. She had an incredible package and the crowd loved her. This was also my first time seeing Nicole Ball compete as a physique competitor, but she did not make the first call-out. She has an excellent physique but it looks like she'll have to drop more mass to become competitive in this division.
