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

The Scoop: Just Announced: Over the weekend, new IFBB Pro Cecil Croasdaile won the Super-Heavyweight Class and Overall title at the UKBFF British National Bodybuilding Championships in Nottingham. Physique mass and conditioning helped the 5'8", 225-pound bodybuilder from London conquer the other weight-class winners. For his efforts, Croasdaile earned an IFBB Pro card and qualification to compete on the contest circuit of the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness.

The "So What?": At 46, Cecil Croasdaile is the oldest man to claim the UK champion's crown and earn professional status at the UKBFF National Championships. Prior to this year's victory, Croasdaile had placed 3rd in the Heavyweight Class at last year's British Championships. He had also competed in the event back in 1994, when he placed 6th at the Finals; in 1993, when he placed 2nd in the Light-Heavyweight Class; and in 1992, when he finished 4th in Light-Heavyweight Class. The British Nationals Overall title was previously won by IFBB Pro Alvin Small in 2010 and by IFBB Pro Zack Khan in 2009.

Andrew Oye's Verdict: More than 20 years ago, then powerlifter Cecil Croasdaile had been warned by Gary Taylor, a bodybuilder who was the runner-up (to eventual 6-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Dorian Yates) at the 1988 British Championships and a strongman who went on to win the 1993 WSM World's Strongest Man contest, that pursuing a win at the British Championships was difficult.

Croasdaile traded powerlifting for bodybuilding in 1991, perhaps partially inspired by British IFBB Pro Albert Beckles, who made industry waves when, at 53, he won the 1991 IFBB Niagara Falls Pro Invitational and then competed against 8-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Lee Haney at Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend. Decades later, Croasdaile achieved his goal at typical bodybuilding-retirement age, two weeks shy of his 47th birthday.

As reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report," the IFBB British Grand Prix Pro Bodybuilding Championships (won by Open-Division IFBB Pro Branch Warren and 202-Division IFBB Pro Flex Lewis) were revived in 2011, after about seven years without pro bodybuilding competitions in the UK. This, along with the debut of the Arnold Sports Festival's European IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships (won by IFBB Pro Victor Martinez) earlier this month, provides more opportunities for the future British IFBB Pro athletes that emerge from the UKBFF Championships.
