2016 NGA ‘Old Navy’ Natural ProAm Bodybuilding, Figure, Physique and Bikini Classic - Super Pro Qualifier

Birmingham, Alabama, July 9th

Fifty outstanding men and women athletes came from Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Texas and Alabama to vie for Neils Andersen Sculptured trophies and NGA Pro Cards at the ninth annual 2016 NGA ‘Old Navy’ Natural Bodybuilding, Figure, Physique and Bikini Classic - Super Pro Qualifier and the fourth annual NGA ‘Old Navy’ Natural Master Pro Bodybuilding and Master Pro Figure Classic in Birmingham, Alabama.

The athletes were pleased as we returned to Birmingham for the sixth year to Homewood High School with its great stage, sound system and dramatic lighting, the pump up area, the back stage refreshments and their 2016 NGA “Old Navy’ Classic sports bag with the official 2016 show t-shirt and a Snickers bar.

The contest started on time and ran smoothly. It was a "competitor's show," run by competitors who know what athletes want and need. Many of the competitors were repeat contestants from last year and many said they would like to come back next year for the 10th annual 2017 NGA ‘Old Navy’ Natural ProAm Classic on July 8, 2017. Others said they would encourage their competitor friends to join them on stage. As always, it was a fun show. And next year’s 10th Anniversary show will be our best competition ever.

In addition to the NGA ‘Old Navy’ Open amateur show, seven Master Pro bodybuilders, four Grand Master Pro bodybuilders and two Master Pro Figure competitors were on stage to compete in the NGA ‘Old Navy’ Natural Master Pro Bodybuilding and Master Pro Figure Classic. Darryle Lee from Spring Hill, TN won his first Men’s Master Pro Bodybuilding title and David Weinstock from Davie, FL won the Grand Master Pro title for the second year in-a-row. Melanie Coleman from Winston, Georgia won the Master Figure Pro title.

In the amateur competition, NGA Pro Card eligible classes needed five or more competitors entered for the Open Division and five or more competitors entered for the Masters Division. NGA Pro Cards were awarded to eight athletes in this Super Pro Qualifier. Chris Tippins from Montgomery, AL won the Middleweight title and the Overall title. Chris also crossed over and won his NGA Pro Card in Men’s Physique. Paul Redmer from Acworth, GA, already an NGA Master Pro, was awarded his NGA Open Pro Card by winning the Lightweight class. Perry Navarro-Davis from Biloxi, MS took the Heavyweight title and is now a new NGA Pro Athlete. Perry crossed over and won his second NGA Pro Card in the new Men’s Classic Bodybuilding Physique class. Matthew Davis from Rantour, IL also won an NGA Pro Card in that division. Andy Bostinto, NGA Chairman, authorized the awarding of two NGA Open Pro Cards in the new Men’s Classic Bodybuilding Physique division. Tony Gray from Michie, TN won his NGA Pro Card in the Men’s Masters Classic Bodybuilding Physique class. Bikini Open Champion, Zoey Anders, 17 years-old from Birmingham, AL won her NGA Open Bikini Pro Card. Congratulations to our eight new NGA Pros!
