Local IFBB Pro Troy Alves Takes Aim at the 2010 Phoenix Pro

Local IFBB image The Item: Career Updates/Contest Preparation

The Scoop: Recently Announced: IFBB Pro Troy Alves is prepping to do some damage onstage at the IFBB Phoenix Pro Bodybuilding & Fitness Show in Mesa, Arizona (February 20). The owner of a local sports nutrition shop, Alves shoulders both the support and the pressure of being the hometown favorite. When I spoke with Alves at the 2009 Meet the Olympians event in Vegas, he told me, "I see myself competing for 2-3 more years, and that will be the end for me, but I want to be at a high level on the way out. My goal is to have three nutrition stores in the Arizona area and just enjoy life out of the limelight."

The "So What?": Alves had an up-and-down contest season in 2009, going from 11th place at the Ironman Pro, rebounding to win the Orlando Show of Champions, and  then landing in 3rd place at the Atlantic City Pro.  Early predictions place Alves in the Top 4 at the Phoenix Pro, along with Toney Freeman, Melvin Anthony and Hidetada Yamagishi. Alves placed ahead of both Anthony and Yamagishi at the 2009 Atlantic City Pro, but Freeman, Anthony and Yamagishi all placed ahead of Alves at the 2009 Olympia.

Andrew Oye's verdict: Alves' aesthetic physique and nice-guy persona has earned him fans in the trenches of the sport's followers, but he'll be contending with guys who outshone him the last time they all faced each other. This month, he'll need to pull out all the stops to shine in his own backyard.
