Return of the Strong
Since its inception, the Arnold Classic and Fitness EXPO has attracted athletes from around the world to compete in a multitude of events and sports throughout the 3-day festival. This year, 76 athletes were invited to compete in the 2011 Arnold Sports Festival IFBB professional bodybuilding, fitness, figure and bikini events on March 4-6.
Co-producer Jim Lorimer said this year’s contestants will once again “astound fans” with a fantastic show of muscular and fit physiques. Many past champions and fan favorites will join rising stars to battle it out at the Arnold Classic, Ms. International, Fitness International, Figure International and Bikini International competitions. Some of those who were invited to return include Branch Warren, who came in third behind Kai Greene in the 2010 Arnold Classic, and defending champion Iris Kyle of Cypress, Texas, who will return to the Ms. International in 2011.
The EXPO Stage also hosts the Arnold Strongman Classic and prejudging for the Ms. International, Fitness International and Figure International competitions. At $10, that’s the best deal you can get in sports entertainment!
