The Item: Contest Results, New IFBB Pro League Cards, Andrew Oye's IFBB Pro Athletes Roundup

The Scoop: Recently Announced: Ricardo Correia won the Heavyweight Class and Overall title at the 2013 UKBFF U.K. British Bodybuilding Championships, overtaking the winners of the other Classes -- Dave Titterton, Sasan Heirati, Cliff Benton, and Gordon Singh - and earning an IFBB Pro card to enter the professional bodybuilding ranks.

The "So What?": The UKBFF British Bodybuilding Championships moved from Manchester's Trafford Centre in 2012 to the Harrogate International Centre this year. Ricardo Correia had also won the 90 kg Class in 2012, but rookie IFBB Pro Anthony Bailes (100 kg Class Winner) won the Overall and took the IFBB Pro card last year. Correia placed 3rd in his class at the 2012 Arnold Amateur Europe Championships at the Arnold Sports Festival's IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Europe (won by IFBB Pro Shawn Rhoden) in Madrid, Spain. U.K. IFBB Pro Zack Khan was the featured guest poser.

Andrew Oye's Verdict: New IFBB Pro Ricardo Correia prospered with coaching help from 212 Division competitor IFBB Pro Shaun Joseph-Tavernier. As reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report" recently, the BodyPower Expo will host the first-ever IFBB-sanctioned BodyPower Pro Bodybuilding Championships in 2014, bringing to the U.K. (the proving ground of 212 Olympia Showdown Champ IFBB Pro Flex Lewis and home of legendary 6-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Dorian Yates) more opportunities for IFBB Pro athletes to participate in the Olympia Qualification Series.
