The NPC created a national drug tested contest, the Team Universe Championships. The basis of this contests is that the men's and women's weight class winners will become a member of the United States NPC Team that competes at the IFBB World Amateur Bodybuilding Championships (Formerly known as the IFBB Mr. Universe and IFBB Ms. Universe.) This year, however, no Men's team was selected, due to the fact that the event will be held in Cairo, Egypt, as it possesses a danger to the U.S. Team. Skip LaCour, the overall winner, turned 40 two weeks ago!
