The Top Ten IFBB Bikini Competitors of 2011
The Top Ten IFBB Bikini Pros for 2011
Now that the 2011 IFBB Pro Bikini season is winding down, I thought I would do a list of the top competitors during the year.
Like last year, this list is based not only on wins but improvement and popularity as well.
To be fair, based totally on wins, Nicole Nagrani would probably be at the top of this list with first place wins at the 2011 IFBB Arnold Classic, Ms. International, Fitness International and Figure International and the 2011 IFBB Olympia.
But Nicole, despite her wins, just isn't as popular as some of the other girls.
Just like Nathalia Melo, would also be near the top with a first place win at the 2011 IFBB Europa Show of Champions in Orlando.
Some of the other winners this year are....
Dianna Dahlgren - 2011 IFBB Phoenix Pro
Jamie Baird - 2011 IFBB Jacksonville Pro and the 2011 IFBB Pittsburgh Pro Figure and Bikini
Alison Rosen - 2011 IFBB New York Pro Bodybuilding, Figure and Bikini Championships
Abbie Burrows - 2011 IFBB Tijuana International Pro Bodybuilding and Bikini
Diana Graham - 2011 IFBB Pro Bodybuilding Weekly Championships
Natalie Pennington - 2011 IFBB Europa Super Show, Dallas
Barbara Bolotte - 2011 IFBB Optimum Classic Pro Figure and Bikini
Shelsea Montes - 2011 IFBB Toronto Pro Super Show
Amanda Latona - 2011 IFBB MuscleContest Pro Bikini
But like I said, this list IS a popularity contest, so here are the top IFBB Bikini Pros by popularity in 2011....
1. Jessica Jessie
Coming in on the list at number one, we have a beautiful former NFL Washington Redskin Cheerleader, personal trainer and certified nutritionist, Jessica Jessie.
Jessica is from Rockville, Maryland and she turned Pro in 2010.
And she hasn't done too badly for herself...
2011 IFBB Olympia - 16th
2011 IFBB Europa Super Show, Dallas - 2nd
2011 IFBB New York Pro Bodybuilding, Figure & Bikini Championships - 9th
2011 IFBB Pittsburgh Pro Figure & Bikini - 6th
2011 IFBB 1st Phorm St. Louis Pro Bikini & Figure - 2nd
2. Elena White
Coming in at number two, we have Elena White.

2011 IFBB North American Championships - 17th
2011 NPC Junior National Championships - 13th
2011 NPC Junior USA Championships - 5th
3. Khanh Nguyen
Last year four foot eleven inch Khanh Nguyen participated in seven IFBB Bikini competitions, which is pretty grueling.
This year she she only did two.
But everybody needs some time off right?
By the way, did I mention that Khanh is 43?
2011 IFBB Pro World Masters Championships - 15th
2011 IFBB Iowa Pro 212 & Bikini Championship - 13th
2011 IFBB Fort Lauderdale Pro - 10th
2011 IFBB Phoenix Pro - 16th
2011 IFBB Europa Show of Champions, Orlando - 7th
4. Jessica Anderson
You may remember five foot seven inch Navy Corpsman Jessica Anderson from the IFBB Bikini list last year.
Well this year she was only in one competition, but I guess the Navy demanded a lot of her time.
And she was still popular enough to come in at number four.
2011 IFBB Titans Grand Prix Pro Bikini - 7th
2011 IFBB Europa Super Show, Dallas - 5th
5. Alison Rosen
This personal trainer and nutrition consultant from Boca Raton, Florida had a pretty decent year.
She turned Pro in 2010 and this year competed in three major competitions.
2011 IFBB New York Pro Bodybuilding, Figure and Bikini Championships - 1st Place
2011 IFBB Pittsburgh Pro Figure and Bikini - 4th Place
2011 IFBB Arnold Classic, Ms. International, Fitness International and Figure International - 7th Place
2011 IFBB Olympia - 7th Place
6. Brittany Smith
2011 IFBB North American Championships - 6th
2011 IFBB Arnold Amateur - 6th
7. Amanda Latona
Well I had a whole Hub devoted to Amanda, but after a year, HubPages decided that it wasn't good enough anymore and took it down.
But here she is here.....
2011 IFBB MuscleContest Pro Bikini - 1st
2011 IFBB Arnold Classic, Ms. International, Fitness International and Figure International - 6th
2011 IFBB Sacramento Pro 212 and Bikini - 1st

2011 IFBB Arnold Classic, Ms. International, Fitness International and Figure International - 2nd
2011 IFBB Olympia - 5th Place

(She competed for four years before turning pro)

2011 IFBB Arnold Classic, Ms. International, Fitness International and Figure International - 12th

10. Nathalia Melo
Like I mentioned at the beginning, if we were basing this purely on wins, Brazilian beauty Nathalia would be at the top of the list for sure.
2011 IFBB Europa Show of Champions, Orlando - 1st
2011 IFBB Arnold Classic, Ms. International, Fitness International and Figure International - 3rd
2011 IFBB Olympia - 2nd Place
