Erin Stern to sit out the 2014 Ms. Figure Olympia
Tue, 2014-07-08 08:22

In a thrilling turn of events, Erin Stern has taken her name out of the running for Ms. Figure Olympia. The 2x Ms. Olympia and 3x Arnold Classic runner-up will instead focus her energy into helping, training and empowering other people through fitness. 

“I have been competing as an amateur since late 2008. I’ve done up to six shows a year since then. It’s a lot. It’s not that I feel that my body won’t respond, it’s just that my bones ache!”

As per CBBF President Mark Smishek, placing Top 15 at CBBF Nationals now qualifies you to go to the Amateur Arnolds in either Ohio, Brazil or Madrid!

A little bit closer to home, however: Placing top 15 at Nationals ALSO qualifies you for Gary Udit's North Americans (an IFBB Pro qualifer) on August 29/30 in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. 

Please contact the president of your provincial CBBF affiliate because you will have to get them to ask Mark Smishek for a letter of reccomendation in order to go.
