                      Entering and actually Showing up to Check In's are two entirely different things with a Contest this big and involving other Countries my friend.
                      You're welcome, thanks for your patience, it's only a few more days, relax and breathe!

                        i guess the answer is there is no list of registered athletes yet. That was the question. Thanks Shawn I will be patient.

                            THEY NEED TO ADD ANOTHER CLASS FOR THE WOMENS BODYBUILDING
                            SUPER HEAVY WEIGHT CLASS = 165BLS AND UP. THE WOMENS HEAVY WEIGHT CLASS IS TOO BIG, WITH WOMEN COMING IN AT OVER 165 BLS AND UP. CRAZY!!!!!!!! THE WOMENS HEAVY WEIGHT CLASS SHOULD BE 140BLS TO 160BLS ONLY. THIS SHOULD AT ALL PRO "Q" AND REG SHOWS.
