    OK, maybe a single pro card for the overall winner in men's bodybuilding, but c'mon.
    They even have the 2nd place in each wt class getting a pro card. WTF?

    At this point just have a pro card drop from the ceiling for the fans , before they announce the winners at the finals.
    I saw a star, reached for it...and MISSED

    I bet a ton of Canadians turn out for this, they have much fewer chances to turn Pro up there than the USA guys do.

    I like it , the more the bodybuilding the better ..Turning pro at the amateur olympia has a nice ring to it ..

    I'm for this but for the overall winner & that's it! If they decide to give a pro card to the rest of the classes, then to me it's crap!

    The Olympia Weekend is proud to announce the 2017 Amateur Olympia in Las Vegas. This is the first time that the Amateur Olympia series will be held in the USA. The Amateur Olympia will be open to National Physique Committee (NPC) and IFBB registered competitors from across North America, South America, Central America and the Caribbean . The event is scheduled to take place at the Orleans Hotel and Casino – Showroom on Thursday, September 14th with check in taking place all day on Wednesday, September 13th. The Amateur Olympia will consist of the following categories and will award 2 Pro cards for each overall division for a total of 8 Pro cards.[*]Bikini[*]Open Bodybuilding[*]Classic Bodybuilding / Physique[*]Men’s Physique




    OK.... from how I understand this. 4 categories - 2 pro cards for each - 2 best in overall get that pro card. Why do you say it's 2 for each class?
    Lance Armstrong is a winner.
    Chael Sonnen to be next president.

    For those not aware,the consensus coming down from the top is that eventually anyone will have the opportunity to simply fill out your form like the NPC annual one and pay the $175 pro dues and all can recieve pro card just as all can recieve npc card.Now whether you will win or be successful in IFBB that is the neverending Question...but yes you all will have your pro cards.Have not heard if all you pro's will still recieve npc news magazine.Go get em Ya Alls !

    It is also proposed that the following new article of compliance to be added to the IFBB constitution will be that pro card applicants over age 50 must attach to their pro card request application a certificate of medical fitness which includes a normal exercise induced tolerance electrocardiogram issues by a doctor.With Albert Beckles having won a pro show at 63 years old,one wonders how long Levrone and Dexter Jackson will keep going to exceed that record of age 63!...Meanwhile some of you already slinging iron for decades may very well be just getting started,so bring on the pro cards for one and all.
