As predicted, the premium shape that Wilkins displayed at yesterday's prejudging carried her through the finals and straight to the top of the pack.
It was apparent that this represented an important victory for Wilkins. The typically stoic diva let her emotions pour forth as she accepted her gold.
Suffice it to say, Erin Stern didn't make it an easy win for Wilkins. Expect Erin to be coming back in an attempt to recapture the figure title next year.
Rounding out the top spots were the lovely and talented Ava Cowan, who vamped her way to a third-place finish at her first Olympia, as well as Teresa Anthony and Candice Keene who both made strong leaps from their placing last year.
