The time is now upon us: The women have been training hard and are ready for the biggest show on earth... the Olympia. The lineup this year is stellar and will surely not disappoint. Who might take top honors for the women this year? Let's find out!


2007 Ms. Olympia
Who Do You Think Will Win The 2007 Ms. Olympia? Why?

I think Iris Kyle will once again win the Ms. Olympia, just like she did last year. She came in with the perfect combination of mass, conditioning, and symmetry, and I think she will repeat that this year.

She has arguably the best biceps and legs, and if she can bring last year's package, she'll be in the winner's circle once again. I see the top three for this year's Ms. Olympia being the same as this year's Arnold Classic, with Iris Kyle coming in first, Yaxeni Oriquen-Garcia coming in second, and Heather Armbrust coming in third.


The Top Ten
What Do You Think The Top 10 Will Look Like? Why Do You Put Them In This Order?


1st Place - Iris Kyle:

    I have no doubts that Iris Kyle will place first, as long as she can duplicate last year's package. She has great symmetry and a very balanced physique. Iris won the Arnold Classic this year and will win once again at the Olympia.

2nd Place - Yaxeni Oriquen-Garcia:

    I think that Yaxeni Oriquen-Garcia will improve on last year's performance and get back to the top three. She won the Ms. Olympia in 2005 and if Iris Kyle is off, she could certainly repeat. She placed second at the Arnold Classic this past year.

    Yaxeni has a good amount of size and very good symmetry, so she needs to come in condition to place second, or even possibly win.

3rd Place - Heather Armbrust:

    Newcomer Heather Armbrust, who placed third at this year's Arnold Classic, will place third at the Olympia. She is still a rookie and has a lot to learn, but she could definitely win in the next few years. She has the size and if she can bring good conditioning, she will end in third place.

4th Place - Dayana Cadeau:

    Dayana Cadeau, who placed second at last year's Ms. Olympia and sixth at this year's Arnold Classic, will find herself out of the top three and in fourth place. She doesn't have any major weak points and has a balanced and symmetrical physique, but she needs to nail her conditioning or she could place even lower because of this year's tough competition.

5th Place - Bonnie Priest:

    Bonnie Priest placed fourth at last year's Olympia and eight at this year's Arnold Classic. Her mass is what's making her competitive so she needs to come in with no noticeable weaknesses and sharp conditioning to place fifth.

6th Place - Annie Riviecco:

    Annie Riviecco placed third at last year's Olympia and seventh at this year's Arnold Classic. Annie has a lot of size and a great V-taper. Her legs are also massive and if she can repeat her conditioning from last year's Olympia, she could place sixth or better depending on how the rest of competitors come in.

7th Place - Lisa Aukland:

    Lisa Aukland has one of the most symmetrical physiques out of all the competitors. She placed fifth at last year's Olympia and fourth at this year's Arnold Classic. She has a good amount of size and needs to bring her best conditioning. I see her placing seventh this year.

8th Place - Betty Pariso:

    Betty Pariso is a seasoned pro and has been around for quite a while. She placed sixth at last year's Olympia and eighth at this year's Arnold Classic. She needs to bring her best package to date or find herself placing out of the top ten. I see her placing eighth.

9th Place - Antoinette Norman:

    Antoinette Norman placed ninth at this year's Arnold Classic and if she can duplicate her package at the Arnold, she will place ninth at the Olympia.

10th Place - Tazzie Colomb:

    Tazzie Colomb placed eleventh at last year's Olympia and can make the top ten this year if she comes in with great conditioning.

Fitness & Figure
Who Will Win The Fitness & Figure Olympia? Why?

I think Jenny Hendershott will win the Fitness Olympia. She has been competing for quite a while and will her experience will earn her a first place finish.

I think Monica Brant will win the Figure Olympia, only if she brought up her back. She has one of the best physiques and her back is her only weak point, even though it's slightly lagging.

Fitness & Figure Top 3
What Do You Think The Top 3 Will Be For The Fitness & Figure Competitors? Why Did You Put Them In This Order?


-> Fitness Olympia:

    1st Place - Jenny Hendershott:

      Jenny Hendershott never fails to bring a great routine to the stage and I feel her experience will earn her a first place finish. She will not regret making her comeback after retiring following the Arnold Classic.

    2nd Place - Kim Klein:

      Kim Klein has been improving her routines each go around. She has one of the best physiques and I think that will earn her a second place finish.

    3rd Place - Adela Garcia:

      Adela Garcia has recently competed in figure competitions and as done very well. She is one of the best fitness competitors and has improved he routines. She also has a great physique, which will earn her a third place finish.

Date: 9/07/2007


-> Figure Olympia:

    1st Place - Monica Brant:

      Monica Brant is a former Fitness Olympia champion and is now competing as a figure competitor. I think this will finally be her year and she will win the Figure Olympia. She's been working hard trying to improve her back and I think she will win and make history by becoming the first competitor to win both the Fitness and Figure Olympia.

    2nd Place - Jenny Lynn:

      The defending champ will find herself in second place this year. She has the best back out of all the figure competitors and if Monica Brant didn't improve her back enough, then Jenny Lynn will once again win the Figure Olympia.

    3rd Place - Mary Elizabeth Lado:

      Mary Elizabeth Lado has been making steady improvements and she place third this year. She has a great balanced physique and will win the Figure Olympia in the next few years.
