IFBB Figure Pro Christine Pomponio-Pate - What's not to luv?

Colorado's own Christine Pomponio-Pate was working the Vyotech booth at the Arnold Expo. Ms. Christine has shot to the top of the figure ranks over the last couple of years and is a favorite of many photographers. She's appeared on magazine covers, layouts, ads and can be seen in a few commercials in the Denver area. I've been friends with Christine for a few years now and we always joke around like a couple of dorks. I ask her about her photos, tigers and more on this video.

Ron and Isaac bring you exclusive video footage that no one else has of Arnold. Arnold caught up with a man from Baghdad who has been trying to attend the Arnold Classic for several years. This is the first time Sabah Talib has been able to make it to the show due to Sadam no longer being in power. Talib owns a gym in Iraq, called appropriately enough, "Arnold Classic Gym." Arnold chatted with him for a couple minutes and posed for photos. You could tell Talib was delighted to speak with Arnold and meet the Governor and bodybuilding icon.
