Olympia 2018 – Meet The Olympians
This is the first official event to kick off the Olympia weekend and it’s always worth dropping by for a visit. The Meet The Olympians event provides fans the opportunity to meet some of their favorites as well as interact with them and get a photo or two. Additionally, you’ll always find some impressive physiques in the crowd, particularly as some of the competitors from the amateur portion of the Olympia come out to mingle with the pros.
What better way to start things off than a biceps blast from Sasha Brown, IFBB pro figure competitor and fitness model. You can find Sasha on Facebook.
When I suggested to IFBB pro figure competitor Louise Rogers that we get a flexing shot, I asked her what a strong pose for her would be. She gave me a confident look, smiled and said, “It’s all good.” Hard to argue with that. Follow Louise on Instagram at Louise_ifbbpro
On the amateur side of the equation, we spotted a trio of Brazilians, including two figure competitors. Camila Lyra (left) placed 4th in figure at Amateur Olympia; Gabriela Consolmagno (right) placed 3rd; in the middle, Camila’s crossfit sister. Impressive trio! Follow Gabriela on Instagram
IFBB physique pro Melissa Pearo graciously posed for a number of photographers at the Meet The Olympians event. We walked away with a front shot and a rear shot. Follow her on Facebook at Melissa Pearo IFBB Pro
Although covered up, when Lenka Ferencukova hit a biceps shot for the camera, it almost appeared like the would pop out of her sleeve. You can follow Lenka on Facebook
