Official comment on Arnold Classic Africa - Amateur and Pro Bodybuilding:
I know there is allot of confusion about the Arnold Classic Africa after the split between IFBB International and NPC/Pro League. After numerous meetings, it is decided and agreed by Arnold partnership that it is best that Arnold Classic Africa, is and will stay with IFBB International and IFBB Elite Pro League. No, Arnold Classic Africa is not a NPC event, and is not a qualifier for Pro League cards. Arnold Classic Africa will be a qualifier for the IFBB Elite Pro cards. To compete at the Arnold Classic Africa you still have to qualify by competing at the IFBB Sanctioned events as advertised, if you selected, you will receive a official invitation to compete at the Arnold Classic Africa 2018. So please if you got any questions and queries about Arnold Classic Africa, contact our team 012 653 2960 or send me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our last four Arnold Classic Africa qualifying events for 2017,you will see posters attached!
or get more information on www.arnoldclassicafrica.com and www.ifbbsa.co.za . This is exiting times, and i am convinced that we going to see great things happen in the near future!

The one guy that has had my back from our first meeting is Jim Manion. He backed me to be the promoter for @arnoldclassicau when others tried to stop me. He gave me the opportunity to be the interviewer for NPC News Online backstage at the @mrolympiallc and @arnoldsports He encouraged me to be a pro judge all over the world. He called me when my life was upside down, taught me to be patient and dignified when I was under attack. Recognised my street smarts when we had problems across the world. Thank you Jim for believing in me.

Chanan Siglock, former Bikini Pro, accepts top Texas position.
In an historic move, IFBB Physique America has named Chanan Siglock, former IFBB Pro Bikini competitor to be their first Chairperson for the State of Texas. Besides being a competitor, Chanan is also a gym owner and a personal trainer.
“It was a logical choice having a woman in the top executive position for such a large state since two thirds of the sport is now female” proclaimed IFBB Physique America CEO, Wayne S. DeMilia. “We are taking the sport out of the Dark Ages and elevating it to the Modern World.” Chanan has quickly organized Promoters in Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, Houston and El Paso proving that she is not only a competitor but also an astute business executive.
