Iris Kyle has seen close to two decades worth of accomplishments.


She won her first amateur contest, the Long Beach Muscle Classic, in 1994. Her amateur efforts culminated with a heavyweight and overall victory at the 1998 NPC USA

Championships in Las Vegas, a victory that earned her a pro card. She followed that up by winning the heavyweight class of the Ms. Olympia in 2001.

Thanks to the support of her coach, IFBB pro competitor Patrick Lynn, Kyle has not only torn through the amateur ranks, but the pros as well.

“Every single Olympia I’ve done stands out for me, because no matter where you may place, you’re still one of the best in the world,” Dennis James says, looking back on a competitive career that spans nearly 20 years. 
His first NPC competition was the NPC Junior USA of 1996, where he placed 13th. In 1999 James competed in his first Night of Champions, where he tied 14th. The following year, in 2000, James competed in his first Arnold Classic, placing 4th. His first Mr. Olympia was in 2000 as well.
James retired in 2010 but came back to the stage in 2012. He had competed in 37 pro shows from 1999 to 2010. So, the two-year break he had was a long time coming.
