Its sad when hard work doesn't pay off - Louise didn't place.

The winner was this lady - Terri Turner - a really soft look. Makes you wonder what it is the judges are looking for.

But get feeling that in Europe they like a harder look for figure girls and in the US a softer look :confused1: :confused1: :confused1: What happened to continuity of standards on a global scale in one federation?

totally agree Lou,yet more 'wish the judges new what they were looking for so that everyone else know what look they are aspiring to achieve' syndrome going on,its a shame.

Winner looks great,Louise looks outstanding,but two different looks.

sad to see lou outside the top 16, such a large class...38 IIRC???!

As said previous, europe you have judging that rewards condition, where as the US looks for a more softer look.

I forget who i was talking to but one girl said you diet down as you were going for a europe show but have a few good meals before the US show to smooth you out a bit.

crazy

this will be the same problem with the bikini class as the UKBFF do not post up strict criteria for both the athletes and judges to follow.....what is the point in having two distinct looks for the same class.....

I was about to say, the winner looked more like she'd be a bikini competitor

The BodyFitness class is confusing - at the Herc last year, the winner was quite muscular and hard, but then one of the other girls who placed 2nd and 3rd was very soft, and the other somewhere in between :confused1:

Right ok. Any reason why she entered this class then, was there another that was more suited?? It just seems theres an easy understanding of whats required for men competing, but woman, its so confusing and seems no one knows the answers......

she entered this class because she is a BodyFitness Pro Louise can only prep for a class as she sees the criteria, as i mentioned in Europe including the UK they look for a harder look....if louise wants to move forward in this class in america she will need to adjust her approach for a more softer look

Ahh ok makes sense. Such a shame that she cannot progress in America because they look for a different look. All that effort to get the look she has got and now needs to change. . . . . .

agreed the winner looks good, however I feel this look is more suited to the bikini class rather than the bodyfitness class.

When you consider these girls are Pro's if you put the winner on the Olympia stage against the likes of the top 3 at last years Olympia she'll be blown away and these girls all have a 'different look'....2nd place looks harder than 3rd yet the winner has a softer look...so even Olympia judges seem confused. :confused1: :confused1: :confused1:
