The Item: Career Updates, Special Appearances, Andrew Oye's Pro Athletes Roundup

The Scoop: Recently Reported: IFBB Pro League athletes had career updates or made recent guest appearances at various bodybuilding, physique and fitness events. The "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report" latest roundup includes a mix of Olympia winners.

The "So What?": Over the weekend, 8-time Ms. Olympia IFBB Pro Lenda Murray and 6-time Ms. Olympia IFBB Pro Cory Everson were at the Tampa Pro Bodybuilding Championships to present winner IFBB Pro Evan Centopani with his prize. At the same event in Florida (emceed by retired IFBB Pro Bob Cicherillo), Cory Everson (who never lost a pro contest in her career) was the first female recipient of Ben Weider's Lifetime Achievement Award (previously won by the likes of 8-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Lee Haney, Masters Olympia Champion IFBB Pro Dexter Jackson, first-ever IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Champion IFBB Pro Rich Gaspari, IFBB Pro Lee Labrada, and others).

IFBB Pro Jason Arntz hosted the NPC Muscle Beach Bodybuilding Championships in New Jersey, where IFBB Pro Fred Smalls was the guest-poser. On the way to his big showdown against reigning 2-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Phil Heath, 4-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Jay Cutler was the featured guest-poser at the NPC Jay Cutler Wyoming Classic Bodybuilding Championships. As the IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series heats up, on his way to defend his 212 Olympia Showdown Champion title, IFBB Pro Flex Lewis released a series of "countdown to Olympia Weekend" videos this week.

Andrew Oye's Verdict:
As he eyes possible retirement soon, Jay Cutler is becoming a prolific bodybuilding contest promoter (like IFBB Pro Ronnie Coleman, IFBB Pro Branch Warren, and more), hosting competitions in Massachusetts, Nevada, Wyoming, and the upcoming 2013 NPC Jay Cutler Baltimore Classic Bodybuilding Championships in November (with an Armed Forces Division).
