ANDREW OYE'S image The Item: Career Update, Contest Results, Andrew Oye's IFBB Pro Athletes Roundup

The Scoop: Recently Announced: Former World Champion Professional Strongman Hugo Girard finished strong in his first bodybuilding competition.

The "So What?": I recently reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report" that former World's Strongest Man competitor Hugo Girard would transition from strength competition to physique competition, at the Association des Physiques Quebecois (APQ-IFBB affiliate) 2012 Quebec Open in Canada. His bodybuilding debut resulted in a 1st place finish in the Super-Heavyweight Class.

Canada's Strongest Man Champion from 1999 to 2004, Girard's highest placing in his six attempts at the World's Strongest Man contest was 4th place in 1999. He also placed 9th at the 2005 Arnold Strongman Classic at the Arnold Sports Festival (where IFBB Pro Dexter Jackson won the IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships). Girard plans to work toward becoming an IFBB Pro League athlete. Girard will host The All Ontario Strongman Challenge at the 2012 IFBB Toronto Pro SuperShow (June 2), which is an IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series contest, where competitors in the Toronto Pro Bodybuilding Championships will be gunning for qualification points to confront Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Phil Heath at Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend in Las Vegas.

Andrew Oye's Verdict: Following 5-time WSM Mariusz Pudzianowski's move to MMA fighting, the victory of fellow strongman Hugo Girard in bodybuilding adds to the line of pro athletes from other sports taking a chance at competitive bodybuilding (a phenomenon I explored in my MUSCLE INK Magazine article "Game Changers" about multi-sport athletes). Former WWE pro wrestler Rob Conway took 2nd place in the Physique Division at the NPC Kentucky Bodybuilding Championships, qualifying for the NPC Nationals late last year.
