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

The Scoop: Just Announced: The IFBB Pro League is set to stage the first-ever IFBB-sanctioned professional bodybuilding contest in Slovakia (home country of IFBB Pro Jaroslav Horvath and IFBB Pro Pavol Jablonicky), beefing up the IFBB Pro League contest schedule with another international event. The inaugural IFBB Slovakia Pro Bodybuilding Championships, a.k.a. the IFBB Mozolani Pro Classic, debuts on May 4, 2014, at the Doxxbet Arena in Zilina.

The "So What?": According to the official press release for the IFBB Slovakia Pro Bodybuilding Championships: "Co-promoters Andrej Mozolani and Igor Kopcek will host top-ranked IFBB competitors in the 212 and Figure Divisions...Mozolani, a European and IFBB World Champion, is one of the most successful bodybuilders in Slovakia. The Mozolani Classic, an amateur bodybuilding and fitness event, has been a huge success, with crowds in excess of 2,000 people and was also seen on national TV. The event has also featured some of the world's greatest bodybuilders, such as two-time and reigning Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Phil Heath, and current Olympia 212 Showdown Champ IFBB Pro Flex Lewis. The 2014 IFBB Mozolani Pro Classic will be televised by the biggest Slovakian broadcasting companies." The contest is open to all IFBB Pro League athletes and bolsters the IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series Point System for Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend.

Andrew Oye's Verdict: Like the massive physiques featured in my IFBB Pro Athletes Roundup, the IFBB Professional League has experienced tremendous, worldwide growth in recent years, evidenced by additions to the IFBB Pro League calendar of events reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report," including Finland, Czech Republic, India, as well as Arnold Sports Festival's new IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships in Europe (Madrid) and in Brasil (Rio de Janeiro), and the just-announced IFBB Asian Pro Bodybuilding Championships in Zhengzhou, China.
