The Top Female IFBB Pro Figure Competitors
The Top IFBB Figure Competitors
Well I have finally decided to stop doing the IFBB Figure Competitors by year and just list the best ones in the IFBB regardless of year.
So you may see a few little internal glitches here and there until I get everything up and running properly here.
The IFBB added added the Figure category to it's competitions back in 2003 and it's been going well since then, even with the addition of the IFBB Bikini category.
The figure is a little less muscular than The Bodybuilding class, but more than the Bikini class.
Yeah that is way simplified but a fairly accurate description.
So here are some of the best IFBB Figure Pros ever....
1. Erin Stern
I have the gorgeous Erin Stern at the number one position.
Erin was born on February 5th, 1980 in Tampa, Florida.
She and the equally lovely Nicole Wilkins had a see-saw battle for number one since 2009 when Erin made her pro debut.
Erin won the Figure Olympia in 2010 and 2012.
She also had first place wins at:
2010 IFBB Europa Show of Champions
2011 IFBB Australian Pro Grand Prix XI
2011 IFBB New Zealand Pro Figure
2011 IFBB Jacksonville Pro
2012 Australian Pro Figure Classic
2012 Valenti Classic Pro Figure
2012 Sheru Classic
2012 Arnold Classic Europe
2013 Valenti Classic - 1st place
2. Nicole Wilkins
At the number two position I have Nicole Wilkins who was very close to Erin all year.
Nicole's 2012 Contest History
2012 IFBB Sheru Classic - 2nd
2012 IFBB Olympia Weekend - 2nd
2012 IFBB Australian Pro Grand Prix XII - 2nd
2012 IFBB Arnold Classic - 1st
3. Larissa Reis
Next up is the beautiful Brazilian fitness model and figure competitor Larissa Reis.
If this list was by internet popularity alone, Larissa would be number one no problem.
Larissa's 2012 Contest History
2012 IFBB Olympia Weekend - 10th
2012 IFBB Tournament of Champions Pro Figure - 5th
2012 IFBB Dallas Europa Supershow - 2nd
2012 IFBB Australian Pro Grand Prix XII - 3rd
2012 IFBB Arnold Classic - 7th
4. Ava Cowan
Another figure competitor that is very popular on the internet is Ava Cowan.
Ava has actually been competing since 2005, but has really gotten attention in the last few years.
Mainly by doing things like winning the 2011 IFBB Europa Super Show in Dallas.
Ava's 2012 Contest History
2012 IFBB Olympia Weekend - 9th
2012 IFBB New York Pro - 3rd
2012 IFBB Arnold Classic - 4th
5. Catherine Holland
Five foot seven inch,132 pound Catherine Holland comes in at number five.
Catherine has been competing since 2008 and she turned pro in 2009.
Catherine's 2012 Contest History
2012 IFBB Valenti Gold Cup Pro - 16th
2012 IFBB Wings of Strength Chicago Pro-Am Extravaganza - 12th
2012 IFBB Toronto Pro Supershow - 4th
6. Jelena Abbou
Another lady that I have devoted an entire Hub to, Jelena Abbou, comes in at number 6.
Jelena's Contest History
2012 IFBB Olympia Weekend - 16th
2012 IFBB Arnold Classic - 11th
7. Heather Dees
I think Heather Dees snuck up on a lot of people this year and did pretty darn well for herself.
I also think in 2013 we may be seeing her finish a lot higher in some of these competitions.
Heather's 2012 Contest History
2012 IFBB Sheru Classic - 4th
2012 IFBB Olympia Weekend - 4th
2012 IFBB New York Pro - 2nd
2012 IFBB California Governors Cup - 1st
2012 IFBB Arnold Classic - 5th
8. Jennifer Hernandez
Coming in at number eight we have Jennifer Hernandez.
Although Jennifer is in figure, I think with a bit more size, she might actually have a shot at competing in the Bodybuilder category.
Jennifer's 2012 Contest History
2012 IFBB New York Pro - 9th
2012 IFBB Australian Pro Grand Prix XII - 5th
9. Alicia Harris
Five foot four inch, 124 pound Alicia Harris is another young lady that will be worth watching in 2013.
She started out in 2008 and turned Pro in 2009.
Alicia's 2012 Contest History
2012 IFBB Olympia Weekend - 11th
2012 IFBB Australian Pro Grand Prix XII - 4th
2012 IFBB Arnold Classic - 16th
10. Cheryl Brown
Another of my favorites is Cheryl Brown who comes in at number ten.
Cheryl also started out in 2008 and turned Pro in 2009.
Cheryl's 2012 Contest History
2012 IFBB Wings of Strength Chicago Pro-Am Extravaganza - 7th
2012 IFBB Europa Show of Champions Orlando - 4th
2012 IFBB Arnold Classic - 8th
