The 2015 NPC USAs, held this past weekend in Las Vegas, NV, was one of the largest to date! There were 800 competitors, and the fields in all of the categories were deep. In one particular category however, there was a favorite going in to the prestigious event. Cody Montgomery was the teen phenom that everyone's been talking about since he burst on to the scene in 2012 as the NPC Teen Nationals winner. He went on to win in the same event in 2013 and 2014 as well, opting not to go for his pro card in 2014 because he didn't feel he was ready for a pro qualifier.
BCABBA Sends 51 Athletes To The Canadian Nationals In Halifax
Carnegie Stadium in Leeds, England proved to be an epic battleground this past weekend, as it played host to the 2015 World's Strongest Deadlift competition. There were two favourites leading up to the competition. The first was Englishman Eddie Hall. If the name is familiar to you, it's probably because he was the previous record holder for the deadlift, after pulling 1018lbs at the Arnold Classic Australia. Arnold himself was there to witness the insane event! Evidently, 1018 wasn't good enough for this beast - He had to break his own record.

B.C. Sends 28 Athletes to the CBBF Nationals
This weekend in Edmonton, the British Columbia Amateur Bodybuilding Association (BCABBA) is sending their top bodybuilders to the Canadian National Championships to battle it out on stage with all other provinces. The overall winners will earn IFBB Pro Cards and a chance to compete in the IFBB Pro League. Below are the names of the athletes competing on behalf of B.C. this weekend.
It seems as though IFBB Pro Justine Munro is riding a high. Shortly after taking second place at the prestigious Arnold Classic in Ohio this past March, Munro won her class in the open IFBB Bikini class at the 2015 Patriots Pro. The first place win earned Munro an invitation to compete at the upcoming Mr. Olympia - an invite she was trying very hard to earn. The show took place at the Orleans hotel and convention center on July 4th in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the same venue where Munro will be headed this September to compete at coveted 2015 Mr. Olympia.
Over the past four years Kai Greene has become such an integral part of the show with his guest posing at the Ontario Provincials, to his meet and greets at his sponsor booth. This year the Toronto Pro SuperShow was excited to have Kai Greene doing his own seminar AND a posedown!
