2012 IDFA PRAIRIE CLASSIC RESULTS – June 16

2012 IDFA PRAIRIE CLASSIC – HUGE SUCCESS!

>Complete Result Listings follow this article<

The IDFA Prairie Classic held at the Western Manitoba Centennial Auditorium on June 16 featured many top natural athletes from across Manitoba. This was the premier IDFA competition in Manitoba and the first bodybuilding competition in Brandon in over 10 years. The town support was overwhelming! Competing on this day were athletes ranging from Novice to Open, and Masters (40 years old and over). This was an IDFA Pro-Qualifier competition meaning the Open level overall winners earned IDFA Pro Cards and the respect as the ‘best of the best’ in the IDFA.

ALLMAX Nutrition, our Gold Sponsor showed their support of these great natural athletes with many giveaways.  Also showing their support were Gorilla Jack, Katy’s Kookies, Popeye’s, and Visalus Body By Vi.

First up was the IDFA Transformation Challenge with 3 amazing participants. Host Trent Bartley said it best, “This is what it is all about…. There is no reason why any of us can’t make that lifestyle change.” After Trent read all of their stories and introduced the competitors to show off their new bodies it was time to select a winner. They are all winners however it was time to make the choice. Regan Windsor of Sanford, Manitoba was selected as the winner. Even after winning and accomplishing such a transformation Regan says, “My greatest moments of unexpected joy, however, have come from the accomplishments of others who have found enough inspiration in my fitness journey to begin their own.” Like Trent said, “This is what it is all about.”

Following the Transformation Challenge were the Novices. The Novice Fitness Model division consisted of 13 well-toned physiques and was divided into 2 classes – Short and Tall. Short being 5’4” and under, and Tall being over 5’4”. The winner of the Short class was Nicole Sheedy of Winnipeg, Manitoba and taking the Tall class was Amanda Branigan of Brandon, Manitoba. It was time to determine the overall winner. Both these ladies had great stage presence and were in peak condition. The overall win went to the Amanda. In the Novice Bodybuilding division Ryan Jacobson of Brandon, Manitoba posed his way to a win over fellow local bodybuilder Marc Olson. The Novice Figure division featured 7 athletes and it came down to one point for first place. The petite and conditioned Krystle Boychuk of Thompson, Manitoba squeaked out the victory over Marcy Duncalfe of Brandon, Manitoba. I see a lot of potential in these Novices and look forward to seeing them in future IDFA competitions. I feel the best is yet to come for them.

Next up were the Masters Divisions. These divisions are for competitors 40 years of age and older. Winning the Masters Fitness Model Division was Leah Dalziel of Pierson, Manitoba. The Masters Bodybuilding Title went to 52 year old Brian Forsythe of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Brian went on to also place 2nd in a tough Open Lightweight class. Masters Figure was won by Jennifer Zorn-Ford of Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Finishing off the night was the always anticipated Open Divisions. Some of the best physiques in the game were going after an IDFA Pro Card. Taking the Women’s Open Bodybuilding class was crowd favourite Nichole Giesbrecht of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Nichole had great shape and really knew how to play it up to the crowd. The winner of the Open Fitness Model division and IDFA Pro Card was Dawn Strafof Flin Flon, Manitoba. The men’s Open Bodybuilding division was divided into 2 classes – Lightweight and Heavyweight. The Lightweights were under 155 lbs and the Heavyweights weighed over 180 lbs. Taking the lightweight class with excellent symmetry and posing was Terence Galope of Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Heavyweight class was a battle to say the least. The 4 heavyweights were put through the poses during the judging round and really worked for it. With only one point separating first and second the win went to Rob Diakiw of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Rob narrowly beat fellow Winnipeg competitor Ty Friesen. Now it was time for the Men’s Open Overall. When they first stood beside each other the 129 lbs Terence looked like he was in over his head with the 182 lbs Rob. However when the comparison posing started it became evident that Terence despite being outweighed by over 50 lbs was in the Overall to win. And when the judges scores came back Terence did just that. Terence won the Open Overall. Both men looked phenomenal and were awarded IDFA Pro Cards. Finishing up the night was the Open Figure division. Taking the Open Figure division and IDFA Pro Card was Dawn Straf of Flin Flon, Manitoba. I hope to see them all on the IDFA Pro Stage on July 21 & 22 in Mississauga, Ontario at the IDFA International Championships (Amateur & Pro).

The IDFA continues to lead the way in Natural Bodybuilding, Fitness Model, and Figure and has been doing so since 2005. Visit IDFA.ca for more information.

*Scoring
Scoring is done by ranking each competitor. Ranking is done by comparing the physiques of each competitor of each class and ranking them from highest to lowest. The best competitor should be assigned a rank of 1, the next highest competitor should get a rank of 2, and so on.
The highest and lowest rank for each competitor is discarded as a safeguard against favouritism and to protect against human error. The remaining scores are added, and the lowest total receives first place in the class. Second lowest total receives 2nd place, and so on. If a tie results, the competitor who was ranked highest among the tied competitors by a majority of all judges receives the highest placement.
