The Women of the 2011 Olympia Weekend
Earlier this year I did a write up on one of the biggest competitions held by the IFBB (International Federation of BodyBuilding and Fitness), The 2011 IFBB Arnold Classic, Ms. International, Fitness International and Figure International.
Well now the other major competition for the year is over.
Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend ran this year from September 15th to the 18th.
Of course most of the big names were there, but I missed seeing a few listed that I figured would show up there.
Anyway, like I said, the weekend is history now, and here are the big winners....
The Ms. Olympia title has been around since 1980.
The winner this year is the same lady that won at The Arnold, Iris Kyle.
Besides winning the Arnold title six times, this is the sixth time she has won Ms. Olympia.
This ties her with the legendary Cory Everson.

The Figure Olympia title has not been around as long as the Ms. Olympia title.
It was just started in 2003.
This years winner is the same woman that won the Figure International at the Arnold, Nicole Wilkins-Lee.
This is the second time Nicole has won the title, but not in a row.
Last year Erin Stern broke her run.

Adela has won the title six times since 2004, having her streak broken twice by Jen Hendershott in 2005 and 2008.
