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

The Scoop: Just Announced: Over the weekend, IFBB Pro Craig Richardson was awarded 1st place in the Open Division at the 2011 Toronto Pro Bodybuilding Championships, claiming his first victory in his professional bodybuilding career. Added mass and recent buzz carried IFBB Pro Lionel Beyeke to 2nd place. IFBB Pro Brandon Curry captured the 3rd place spot. IFBB Pro Frank McGrath took 4th place, while IFBB Pro Robert Piotrkowicz was placed in the 5th place position.

The remaining field: IFBB Pro Oscar Dexter (6th), IFBB Pro Gregory Ulysse (7th), IFBB Pro Khalid Almohsinawi (8th), IFBB Pro Marc Lavoie (9th), IFBB Pro  Christopher White (10th), IFBB Pro Santana Anderson (11th), IFBB Pro Alexandre Nataf (12th), powerlifter and IFBB Pro Ben White (13th), IFBB Pro Jari Mentula (14th), IFBB Pro Varinder Singh (15th), and IFBB Pro Fidel Clarke (16th).

The "So What?": As reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report," the Top 3 IFBB Pro League athletes at the Toronto Pro Bodybuilding Championships earn Olympia qualifications to challenge 4-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Jay Cutler at Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend in Las Vegas (September 16). At the inaugural Toronto Pro SuperShow, Canadian Frank McGrath made a comeback following a break from competition due to an auto accident last year, and Santana Anderson, winner of the 2010 CBBF Canadian Championships, made his pro debut. Craig Richardson and Lionel Beyeke had qualified for the Olympia a week prior with their attention-grabbing placings at the New York Pro Bodybuilding Championships, where Richardson placed 3rd and Beyeke placed 4th. For the 2011 season, Robert Piotrkowicz has now competed in five pro contests so far. Expo guests included 8-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Ronnie Coleman, and 6-time Canada's Strongest Man winner Hugo Girard (6-time WSM World's Strongest Man competitor) emceed the strongman contest.

Andrew Oye's Verdict: Representing 40-somethings well with a poised, classic routine in Toronto, Craig Richardson displayed what some are calling his best physical presentation since earning his IFBB Pro card at the 2000 NPC National Bodybuilding Championships. In a similar situation as IFBB Pro Ronny Rockel, Richardson is a Mr. Olympia Championships contender who competes with a well-balanced physique that is "unobtrusively" massive, which, in recent decades, unfortunately gets overlooked at bodybuilding's biggest event. Also, during his 11 years in the pro ranks, Richardson has yet to receive an invitation to compete at the Arnold Sports Festival's IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships (won this year by IFBB Pro Branch Warren). Perhaps this win might change that?
