Is it the future of female bodybuilding? Christine Boudreau just backed out stating, "I'm sad to report I am unable to follow through with the Lady OM MMXI show this December 1st for several reasons (financial included). All shows are expensive, but this one would have been terribly stressful on me financially & even with fund-raising I wouldn't be sure I would have enough money to do the event." Financial concern is big for female bodybuilders with such little contest money and endorsements. I couldn't find any mention of prize money offered for this contest.
I applaud the concept and initiative to make a change, and am looking forward to see the potential of this competition model. It appears to have a few bugs, but we need to start somewhere and move forward.
The contest is somewhere online December 1, 2011. You can join the Facebook group.
