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

The Scoop: Just Announced: Toronto SuperShow promoters just posted the list of IFBB Pro League athletes that will compete at the 2012 IFBB Toronto Pro Bodybuilding Championships in Canada (June 2).

212 Class Competitors:
IFBB Pro Ahmad Ahmad
IFBB Pro Lyndon Belgrave
IFBB Pro Patrick Bernard
IFBB Pro Raul Carrasco Jimenez
IFBB Pro Guy Cisternino
IFBB Pro James Darling
IFBB Pro Mboya Edwards
IFBB Pro Jason Marcovici
IFBB Pro Javier Martinez
IFBB Pro Muhammad Masoom

The "So What?": This is a largely different roster from last year's 202 (now 212) Class list at the inaugural Toronto Pro Championships, which was won by IFBB Pro Shaun Joseph Tavernier and where Mboya Edwards took 2nd place against the likes IFBB Pro Amit Sapir, IFBB Pro Vinny Galanti, IFBB Pro Vince Wawryk. As reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report," the 2012 Toronto Pro SuperShow Expo will be hosting several events, including amateur MMA championships, a Crossfit challenge, powerlifting, weightlifting, armwrestling, boxing, kickboxing, model searches, a strongman challenge (hosted by WSM World's Strongest Man contender Hugo Girard), and IFBB Pro Bodybuilding, Fitness, Figure, Bikini and Physique competitions.

Andrew Oye's Verdict: Since the current 212 Class dominator, IFBB Pro Al Auguste, is not on the list -- nor other current top contenders, like IFBB Pro David Henry, IFBB Pro Kevin English, IFBB Pro Jose Raymond, IFBB Pro Flex Lewis, or IFBB Pro Eduardo Correa (10th place finisher in the Open Division at the Arnold Sports Festival's 2012 IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships, won by IFBB Pro Branch Warren) -- this could be an open opportunity for any of the competitors who are all gunning for IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series points to compete in the 212 Showdown at Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend.
