The evolution of women's bodybuilding.
I haven't checked but that looks like ALL the Ms Olympia bodybuilding champions since the first Ms O in 1980.
oh, and I love every stage of the evolution of the women's side of the sport.
My top three:
- 1st Kim Chizevsky
- 2nd Lenda Murray
- 3rd Andrulla Blanchette
VII I like them all but for me, out of those women, I can't go past the 80's. Rachel, Kike, Carla and Cory.
I love big mass :) <3
So do I but in this group I can't go past the classics.
There is one missing !? 2001 !
orinoko as soon as I saw your comment the name Juliette Bergmann came to mind. After googling the Ms Olympia winners I was reminded that yes in 2001 Juliette won the lightweight division and beat Iris Kyle for the overall title.
Ok so my first comment is wrong. Maybe someone needs to make a new one of these photos with ALL the Ms Olympia bodybuilding winners.
Hi, I thought of Valentina Chepiga. But she was Ms Olympia in 2000 not in 2001. So there are two missing !??!
Ok so it's not a complete list of Ms O winners but it's a very nice picture none the less.
@VII- I agree, however, Juliette Bergman was fantastic also!
kim and cory
1980 - 1983 were the natural years of FBB. After that slowly but surely the amount of substances increased and increased. Gone with the syringe w/ respect to 1984 and on.
Rachel, Kike, and Carla are extremely gorgeous and got there via hard work and preparation w/o substances. They are hot. 3 thumbs up!
In that row Lenda was the first real fbb, everything before is not worth to be remembered!!!
The real fbbs were those who did not use the syringe. Anyone after that is not genuine. They are more muscular but that is due to roids. Yes they are still hot but not as appealing as those who did not take them.
Respect to all but Iris shadows all, she also set the bar with posing and flexing, tho would have loved to have seem Kim and Iris both in their hey day on stage comoarisons. Iris a Rising Pheonix?? (A good third to Andrulla, remember her on musclemags in school ;) )
I think the phrase "to each their own" fits here.
I do not think righteous stigmatize Mr. Olympia more contemporary for her use of steroids.
I am not an expert, but that steroids do not grow muscles of nowhere like mushrooms. Obviously, the contemporary get a bigger muscles and probably in less time, but do not think expend energy less or less dedicated or disciplined than before.
Bring it back
Weird to think it's only 40 years since you could win the Ms. O with a physique like Rachel McLish's. Nowadays I can't walk through a busy town centre without seeing at least 2 or 3 women who are more muscular than she was.
Kike Elomaa is he best out of all of them hands down
AngryGibbon you said it. Lenda on were pretty darn good.
who are the best female bodybuilders who did not win an Olympia?
olympic1916 I think it's all subjective and there can be no definitive list but my list of the best women to have never won the Ms Olympia would have to include, among others, Bev Francis, Laura Creavalle, Sandy Riddell and Debi Laszewski.
What about Rutkowski? She came close in 93
Ok, fair enough, but I did say there can be no definitive list and I did also say among others.
Ms Olympia is back for 2020 folks!! burst open the bubbly and the BOING xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Who out of "Carla Dunlap, Cory Everson, Rachel McLish" was the last to b inducted into the "1999 IFBB Hall of Fame"?
2020 Ms. Olympia coming soon and the other competitors better be fully prepared, otherwise they've already paved the path for Iris Kyle to easily take home title number 11
