    Thumbs up New Olympia Qualification Point system announced!

    MENSOPEN 1


    PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, March 13, 2012 - The IFBB Pro League, in conjunction with Joe Weider?s Olympia Weekend, announced the creation of the IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series, a points-based system that will help determine qualifiers for all six IFBB Pro Olympia divisions.

    The IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series will award points to competitors placing in the top 2 to 5 of all Pro League events. At the end of the Olympia qualifying season, the five (5) competitors with the highest points totals in the IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series will qualify to compete at Olympia Weekend.

    Since the winner of each competition automatically qualifies, no points will be awarded for first place. Additionally, competitors placing in the top 5 at the Olympia automatically qualify for the following year.

    The IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series will be effective immediately, and point totals for all 2012 contests will be included.

    ?We think this is a great way to expand the number of Olympia qualifiers beyond those who win contests and to build excitement for all IFBB Pro League events throughout the course of the year,? IFBB Pro League Chairman Jim Manion said. ?It ensures that the best of the best will be competing on the Olympia stage.?

    Points and qualifications in the IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series will be awarded as follows:

    TIER 1 ? ARNOLD CLASSIC
    2nd ? 8 Points
    3rd ? 7 Points
    4th ? 6 Points
    5th ? 5 Points

    TIER 2 ? SHERU CLASSIC, ARNOLD CLASSIC EUROPE
    2nd ? 6 Points
    3rd ? 5 Points
    4th ? 4 Points
    5th ? 3 Points

    TIER 3 ? NEW YORK PRO
    2nd ? 5 Points
    3rd ? 4 Points
    4th ? 3 Points
    5th ? 2 Points

    TIER 4 ? ALL OTHER IFBB PRO LEAGUE COMPETITIONS
    2nd ? 4 Points
    3rd ? 3 Points
    4th ? 2 Points
    5th ? 1 Point

    The IFBB is such a mess lol... i kinda like this though. It allows people who didnt win shows yet came very close mutiple times to qualify for the O aka Get their arses handed to them by Kai, Jay and Phil.
