The stage is covered with the red carpet, so competitors may feel like in the Hollywood. Most of them in a top condition but, for sure, some of them will improve it to the finals, the other will fail to maintain it.

Two categories: up to 180 cm and over 180 cm had a long line-ups and needed elimination rounds. The number of competitors still in the contest dropped from 144 to 87 finalists. Those, who are out, could feel free at the dinner and eat whatever and how much they wanted. It was visible. The happy finalists preferred to stay in the hotel rooms, load some carbs and try to improve their muscle definition.  In general, it is a game with the water in the body: how to relocate it from under the skin into the muscle cells. Not so easy and there is always a risk to make some mistake and get the opposite results. Who can do it perfectly, will have a medal tomorrow. We will see.

Twelve countries entered competitors into the finals. Iran has 5 athletes and, for sure, will play the main role. But Korea and Spain with 4 athletes each will also be important players. Then China an Poland with 3 finalists each. China is a new player in the world elite as they participate in the Championships for the first time.
