More Of The Top IFBB Pro Bikini Competitors

More Of The Top IFBB Pro Bikini Competitors like Jaime Baird, Dianna Dahlgren, Shelsea Montes, Leigh Brandt and more.

In my last article, The Top Ten IFBB Pro Bikini Competitors I did just that, the top ten.
So I thought I'd make a second and add even more IFBB Bikini Pros to the list.

Like I said in the first article, not everyone is crazy about the Bikini division, but with some of the figure competitors switching over, the division may be gaining more respect.
This will be the first real year of competition and it starts on March 27th, 2010.
Here are some more of the women that will be major players when competition gets under way.

Oh and by the way, I consider this "fitness" because these events are held by the IFBB, the International Federation of BodyBuilding and Fitness.
