Editorial by Juan Carlos Lopez

The second issue of the year and it has been interesting how things have started this year. The Arnold has had interesting rumors so it will be interesting how it will pan out. Mary Lado has to come out and defend her title while Jenny and Monica have opted to perhaps just compete at the Olympia and one more show besides that.

The Lull Before the Storm

Only a couple days will unleash the first couple of pro shows in February including the Arnold which this year will reach its biggest ever even adding the UFC Fighting to its exquisite menu. An NPC competition has been sanctioned as well meaning two competitions will be on going at the same time. This is a problem but maybe we can apply the principles of fission and cover both events. This is only a short part of what the Arnold includes, there are many more events and hopefully there will be more and more we can showcase. The next months after the Arnold are quiet but from June-August it will be chaos as National shows will devour these months.

The front has been really quiet, but after Zhanna Rotar withdrawing from the Arnold Gina Camacho has followed but due to injury. This what the list looks like and might probably remain this way.

The NPC show has its own list here: http://www.arnoldclassicamateurbodybuilding.com/competitors.html

This means the show will be almost like a National or Emerald Cup. Jamie Kocher has withdrawn as well from Women's Middleweight and it might also be that Carla Jones will not compete in Figure B.

We'll keep you posted on things for the next issue which will include coverage of 3 shows.
