The Figure International has been one of the most prestigious titles on the IFBB Pro League circuit since it debuted at the Arnold Sports Festival in 2003.
A new Figure International champion was crowned in 2013 when Candice Keene of Maitland, Fla., won the title for the first time. Heather Dees of Lehi, Utah, fifth in the Figure International in 2012, finished second place. Erin Stern, second in the Figure International in 2012 and the winner of the inaugural Arnold Figure Europe in 2013, finished third, Candice Lewis of Chandler, Ariz., was fourth, Mallory Haldeman of Las Vegas as fifth and Camala Rodriguez of Morrison, Colo., was sixth.
Keene tops a field of 17 in the 2014 Figure International. Dees, second in 2013, is also expected to challenge for the title. Three-time winner Nicole Wilkins was expected to challenge, but she dropped out in mid-January due to a shoulder injury.
Wilkins, who won in 2010, 2011 and 2012, will try to win a record fourth title. Wilkins did not compete in Columbus in 2013.
Wilkins (2010, 2011, 2012) and Jenny Lynn (2003, 2004, 2005) hold the record with three Figure International titles apiece.
The 2014 Figure International will be held Friday, February 28, 2014 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center and Veterans Memorial in Columbus, Ohio. Prejudging for the Arnold Classic 212, Fitness International and Figure International will be held at noon on the Arnold Fitness EXPO Stage at the Greater Columbus Convention Center and Finals will be held at 7 p.m. at Veterans Memorial
