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

The Scoop: Just Announced: Over the weekend, IFBB Pro Robert Piotrkowicz wrapped up a 1st place victory, winning the 2013 IFBB Mr. Europe Pro Bodybuilding Championships in Santa Susanna, Spain. IFBB Pro Baitollah Abbaspour nabbed the 2nd place spot. The 3rd place award went to IFBB Pro Toney Freeman. Last year's champion, IFBB Pro Michael Kefalianos slipped to 4th place. IFBB Pro Daniel Toth took 5th place.

The rest of the field placed as follows: 2011 and 2010 Mr. Europe winner IFBB Pro Ronny Rockel slid to 6th place, IFBB Pro Alfonso Del Rio (7th), IFBB Pro Jeff Long (8th), IFBB Pro Daz Ball (9th), IFBB Pro Jaime Atienza (10th), IFBB Pro Zaher Moukahal (11th), IFBB Pro Manuel Lopez (12th), IFBB Pro Angel Figueroa (13th), IFBB Pro Carlo Asensio (14th), IFBB Pro Vincente Martinez (15th), IFBB Pro Varinder Singh (16th).

The "So What?":
As reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro Muscle Report," the IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series Point System awards points to athletes based on contest placings (1st automatic qualification, 2nd - 4 Points, 3rd - 3 Points, 4th - 2 Points, 5th - 1 Point) hat apply to eligibility to compete at the 2013 Olympia Weekend (September 29) in Las Vegas to face reigning Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Phil Heath.

Andrew Oye's Verdict:
The Mr. Europe Pro Championships may become the go-to contest for athletes seeking first victories. Coincidentally, like 2012 champion Michael Kefalianos, 2013 champion Robert Piotrkowicz earned his first professional bodybuilding contest win at the Mr. Europe competition since earning his IFBB Pro card after the Arnold Amateur Championships at IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger's Arnold Sports Festival.
