The Item: IFBB Pro League Contest Competitors List, Andrew Oye's IFBB Pro Athletes Roundup

The Scoop: Just Announced: The promotion team behind the New York Pro just announced the list of IFBB Pro League athletes that will battle at the 2012 IFBB New York Pro Bodybuilding Championships at the Tribeca Performing Arts Theater (May 19).

Open Class Competitors
:
IFBB Pro Sean Allan
IFBB Pro Tomas Bures
IFBB Pro Jon Delarosa
IFBB Pro Vaughan E.
IFBB Pro Wendell Floyd
IFBB Pro Johnnie Jackson
IFBB Pro Steve Kuclo
IFBB Pro Jeff Long
IFBB Pro Cedric McMillan
IFBB Pro Juan Morel
IFBB Pro Mohammed Touri

The "So What?": What a difference a year makes. As reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report," with a merry-go-round of IFBB Pro League rule changes and Olympia-qualification revisions, the New York Pro has a whole new lineup (almost sliced in half). With the exception of Cedric McMillan, none of last year's roster is returning to a highly anticipated contest that usually includes several veteran pros or established names (like 2011's lineup -- IFBB Pro K. Greene, IFBB Pro Ronny Rockel, IFBB Pro Craig Richardson, or 2010's lineup -- IFBB Pro Hidetada Yamagishi, IFBB Pro Dennis Wolf, IFBB Pro Toney Freeman, etc). Making pro debuts: Steve Kuclo, Jon Delarosa and Juan Morel. Vaughan E. bumps up from the 212 (formerly 202) Class to the Open Class.

Andrew Oye's Verdict: Pre-show front-runners: Cedric McMillan (who needs this win to compensate for some missteps during the 2011 IFBB Pro League contest season and for not competing at the Arnold Sports Festival's 2012 IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships, won by IFBB Pro Branch Warren), Johnnie Jackson (2009 "World's Strongest Bodybuilder" Powerlifting Challenge Winner) and Steve Kuclo (2011 NPC Mr. USA). These competitors seek IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series points on the road to Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend to face Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Phil Heath.
