Official Competitors List: 2021 New York Pro.
The 2021 New York Pro, one of the biggest bodybuilding event of the year has arrived.
The event will not be taking place in New York, due to the strict Covid-19 regulations.
The organizers have decided to continue organizing the event in Florida as they did in 2020.
The event will be taking place at the Tampa, Marriott on 15 May, 2021.
This event has been getting a lot of promotion on social media by a number of athletes.
Blessing Awodibu and Nick Walker have been trading comments on a regular basis in the build up to this great event.
The New York Pro will be Blessing’s second ever pro event. Last weekend at the Indy Pro, Blessing placed third on his pro debut.
This event will be Nick Walker’s second pro event as well. At his first pro show, Nick placed fourth at the Chicago Pro in 2020.
All eyes will also be on Egypt’s Hassan Mostafa. Mostafa has an incredible team in his corner, consisting of Chris Aceto and bodybuilding legend Flex Wheeler.
If Hassan steps on stage with the perfect combination of size and condition, he will surely be the last man standing.
Unfortunately, only 11 Open Bodybuilding competitors have registered for this event. Most probably Covid-19 travel restrictions have kept athletes from traveling.
Regardless, it will be 11 of the top athletes in the industry fighting for the top prize.
We cannot forget to mention three time Bikini Olympia winner Ashley Kaltwasser. Already dominating the competition circuit in 2021, Ashley already has three victories under her belt. She will be looking to win her fourth show this weekend.
As expected, a large number of competitors registered to compete in the Bikini, Wellness and Men’s Physique categories.
Only five athletes registered for the Women’s Bodybuilding category.
As with all other NPC/Pro League events, this will also be a qualifier for the 2021 Olympia Weekend.
