IFBB Bikini Pro Competitors of 2011
The Fitness Beauties of the IFBB Bikini Pro Season 2011
2010 was the first year of the IFBB Bikini Pro competition.
Though a lot of people were afraid it would just be a glorified bikini contest, I think the participants last year and this year may have eased some of those worries.
A lot of these competitors could easily step right into Figure or Fitness if they wanted to.
Last year I did a list of the top ten IFBB Bikini Pros (actually it was 15 but hey....) so I thought I would do one this year.
So here are the women that ruled the division in 2011, and the ones to watch in 2012.
And let's start out with my favorite....
1. Amanda Latona
IFBB Bikini Pro Amanda Latona
Gorgeous fitness model, certified personal trainer, television host, singer and IFBB Bikini Pro Amanda Latona comes in at the number one spot.
For one, because of very high internet popularity....and two, because of her scoring three first place wins in a row at the 2011 IFBB MuscleContest Pro Bikini, the 2011 IFBB Titans Grand Prix Pro Bikini and the 2011 IFBB Sacramento Pro 212 and Bikini.
This gorgeous brunette that once sang with Britney Spears did VERY well last year.
2. Dianna Dahlgren
IFBB Bikini Pro Dianna Dahlgren
Five foot seven, 134 pound blond fitness beauty Dianna Dahlgren had a pretty good year as well, coming in first at the 2011 IFBB Phoenix Pro.
3. Nathalia Melo
IFBB Bikini Pro Nathalia Melo
Gorgeous Nathalia Melo did very well with a win at the 2011 IFBB Europa Show of Champions in Orlando, a second place finish at the 2011 IFBB Olympia and a third place finish at the 2011 IFBB Arnold Classic, Ms. International, Fitness International & Figure International.
4. Jelena Abbou
IFBB Bikini Pro Jelena Abbou
The beautiful Jelena Abbou spent the entire year competing (and doing very well) in the IFBB Figure Division, but at the Arnold Classic she switched over to Bikini and came in at 11th.
5. Dina Al-Sabah
IFBB Bikini Pro Dina Al-Sabah
This woman is practically a legend in the fitness industry, having competed professionally since 2003.
She retired in 2004, but returned in 2010 to the Bikini Pro division.
Her best finish in 2011 was 2nd place at the IFBB MuscleContest Pro Bikini.
