Read our report from 2018 Elite PRO Show Slovakia. Written by the member of 123lbs team Barbora LABUDOVA!
Nitra, the city in western Slovakia, had the opportunity to welcome the professional athletes from IFBB Elite Pro division on the 17th April. Organizers from this town were preparing the Elite pro show for a couple weeks. The show started on Sunday at 5 p.m and 123lbs team was there!
The PRO athletes were competing in 3 differents categories – men´s physique, bodyfitness and bikini fitness. It´s a shame that total number of competitors was only 16. We saw 6 men´s physiques, 5 bodyfitness athletes and 5 bikinis.
Despite this fact, we were watching an interesting duel in IFBB Elite pro bikini category between amazing Yana Kuznetsova and her friend Marina Mocanu. There was 3 more bikinis on the stage (Liz Richardson from UK, Hanna Skvortsova from Ukraine and Olga Korchaka from Russia), but everyone has seen who are the front-runners.
Marina Mocanu showed us beautiful shape (according to russian model) and very elegant presentation. Yana has showed her stunnig I-walk right after Marina. I am following her for a years and it´s a must to say that her presentation and energy simply took my breath away. Her stunning appearance, highly-developed upper body, lean waistline and perfect bottom make her the one of the best bikinis worlwide.
Liz Richardson and Olga Korchaka placed 5th and 4th. I think their height can be a disadvantage in Elite PRO bikini because a majority of bikinis are from smallest or medium height category.
Hanna Skvortsova took the bronze medal. I haven´t heard a lot about her up to now, but I like her physique.Finally, Marina placed second. In my opinion, she has improved a lot this year. Some say that she´s slowly approaching Yana but I think there still will be one difference between Kuznetsova and all others. She´s keeping her standard despite the fact it´s even harder than become the winner of one competition. After taking 4th place in Malta, she won again and she showed us, that she´s the biggest favorite for winning the title of world champion in IFBB Elite pro bikini category. The season continues and we´ll see what it will bring. The next show will take place in Mongolia, Ulan Bator!
