Mr. Big Evolution Pro and AO Portugal 2021 Part 1

Rhea Gayle did not disappoint in Portugal


On Sunday, July 18th in the Casino Estoril took place one of the biggest professional competitions of this season.
The competition which is of higher qualification level was worth the hustle of traveling in these hard times even from South America or the Middle East.
The show provided higher number of points for the Olympia qualification ranking.
Several pro athletes from UK took part as well as amateur but that on other post.

The organizers of Mr Big Evolution Portugal as before prepared nice show for spectators thanks to two lifting turntables.


Purposely starting this with Figure were we had there ladies representing UK Rhea Gale , Barbara Kiss and debutant Scarlett Hollands. Rhea and Barbara came to europe after competing at the Orlando Pro early this month where miss Gayle place 2nd and was now favorite to win this show.

Worth mentioned on Saturday few of the ladies was fighting to join Pro ranks at the amateur olympia with Rebecca Farrell placed 2nd and Ernesta (?)3rd in figure B.

Back to the Pro shows the judges asked for eight girls in the first to call out Bahar Ayra, Oyku Basar, Viola Burk, Rhea Gayle, Olesya Kochura, Carmen Penalver, Jennifer Zienert and Lena Ramsteiner who btw recently still was Ifbb Elite Pro but just Pro League by winning Amateur Olympia on friday. In the end, Lena took second behind Rhea Gayle who did not disappoint and won ticket to her third Olympia. Jennifer Zienert took third in her Pro Debut (she wont her Pro Card at the 2 Bros Ben Weider UK this year), Oyku and Bahar also made it to the top five. This time Gabriela Linhartová will take the divided sixteenth place in the races.

Women’s Bodybuilding

Anastasia Leonova new face in female bodybuilding pro ranks managed to turn her professional debut into a victory and it will be interesting to see how she will perform at Ms. Olympia. Veteran and probably favorite before the show Margita Zamolova got second place in Portugal, just like a few weeks ago in the Bahamas, which means she is not leading strongly in qualification ranking. Vera Mikulcova was third.
