Iris Kyle is among the most dominant female bodybuilders of all time. With five Olympia overall titles to her credit, she has the chance to tie Cory Everson’s six this September and move closer to Lenda Murray’s eight.
It’s hard to imagine anyone ever surpassing Kyle’s combination of muscularity, conditioning and shape. She has bodyparts that rival or exceed those of men competing in the pros. Everson, on the other hand, possessed an appreciable amount of muscularity, but also extremely pleasing shape and undeniable sex appeal.
You have to give it to Kyle. Of course, this is a different era — 20 years are a couple of generations in this sport. Nevertheless, with all things being equal, a showdown between the two women would have been one for the books. Let the debate begin.
