2014 has been a great year for the girls in our sport in Australia with another two new comps just for the women.
With a great new sponsor The Clique, this contest had a really nice relaxed vibe. The Clique looked after all the girls backstage with tan, hair and make-up by the highly skilled Clique team.
This event was a great first show with 32 competitors representing West Australia, South Australia, Queensland, Victoria and NSW of mostly very high standard.
This was the first time for this event and it proved to be a huge success with plenty of new and a few “names” competing. The show was relaxed and friendly which meant it was a lot easier on the first-time competitors taking to the stage. The crowd was loud and supportive of their friends and for many of them it was their first time to a show so it was good to hear them so vocal.
The promoter was Amanda Doherty who added lots of female touches like nice food and sweets and drinks backstage for the athletes as well as nice touches like flowers and specially made medallions for the competitors.

The 2014 Australian Pro Grand Prix was monumental in many ways being one of the best lineups across all divisions (Bodybuilding, Figure, & Bikini), and it also being the last Australian Pro show (at least for now), as Tony Doherty will be launching the Arnold Classic Australia in 2015.
It could have gone either way between Rhoden and Wolf, but Dennis prevailed in the end winning his first Arnold Classic bumping Shawn down into second.
Happy for Cedric McMillan though that climbed up the ranks between prejudging and finals.

The 2014 Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio is now just one short week away and with the amateur portion of the contest growing every year. Australia will once again have a strong contingency competing.
