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

The Scoop: Over the weekend, IFBB Pro Essa Obaid won the 2012 Chicago Pro Bodybuilding Championships. Taking the 2nd place spot was IFBB Pro Fred Smalls. IFBB Pro An Nguyen was the 3rd place finisher. IFBB Pro Grigori Atoyan took 4th place, and 5th place went to IFBB Pro Adorthus Cherry.

The "So What?": This was Chicago's first pro bodybuilding contest since the 1994 IFBB Chicago Pro Invitational won by IFBB Pro Mike Francois. As reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report," the IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series Point System: (1st automatic qualification, 2nd - 4 Points, 3rd - 3 Points, 4th - 2 Points, 5th - 1 Point) applies to IFBB Pro League athletes' eligibility to compete at Joe Weider's 2012 Olympia Weekend (September 29) in Las Vegas. Again, Chicago's lineup was similar to Hartford's recent list. Between Connecticut and Chi-Town, Obaid bumped up from 3rd to the number one spot, grabbing his second pro contest win. Smalls' big jump from 4th to 2nd was followed by Atoyan's even bigger leap from 10th to 4th in a week's time. This event was rookie An Nguyen's debut in a pro bodybuilding contest.

Andrew Oye's Verdict: This was redemption for those who favored Obaid in Hartford; however, pre-show frontrunner Omar Deckard surprised folks by finishing at the bottom of the pack in Illinois. Now folks will be watching to see if Essa Obaid has the goods to go on to win higher titles like the IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships at the Arnold Sports Festival (as IFBB Hall of Fame retired IFBB Pro Michael Francois did in 1995) or an even more elusive Olympia Sandow trophy.
