The inside scope of the 2007 Si-Flex Fall/Pro Classic Bodybuilding & Fitness/Figure Championships
October 20, 2007 the NPA hosted its 6th fall and Pro Classic championships. The Contest was held at
VirginiaStateUniversity’s Virginia Hall in its (state of the art) Anderson – Turner auditorium. The show was a success and provided the best Pro turn out thus far. We’d like to thank the friends, fans and families of all the athletes that made this event a success. There were no walk-ins this year, and one who was disqualified due to being tardy for registration.
The show started at where prejudging of the amateurs set the stage. Teenager Jerry “Slick” Maitland III went uncontested. However this 13 year old young boy has a serious future in bodybuilding if he sticks with it. Next the Masters (40-49) division presented Dan Hunter and (35-39) division presented Jerry Maitland Jr. the father of Slick.
Each would win their class uncontested. In the finals Jerry Jr. would win the Masters overall title over Dan. In the women figure competition there were a total of four, two under 5’5” and two 5’5’ +. In the short class Angela Wynn Brice who look beautiful and no one would guess she was over 50 years young tied with 2007 Ms. North Carolina figure champ “Pam Greer. Lindsay Williams defeated Gail Moyer in the tall class. When the finals came later that night Pam got the decision over Angela and Lindsay got the decision over Pam for the overall Ms. Figure fall classic champion. The men Novice lightweight class resulted in 4th place Dan Hunter, 3rd place Jerry Maitland Jr., 2nd place Adam Furman and the winner was Jerry Slick Maitland III, who beat his dad. In the men Novice heavyweight class 3rd place went to Yohance Fleming, 2nd place went to Jahi Perry, along with best male poser and the winner was newcomer Ryan Riebau. In the finals Riebau and Maitland III went at it for the overall title and Riebau a law enforcement officer from ArlingtonVirginia was declared the winner.
In the women masters 40+ competitor Veronica Coy bought in a very good package and too bad she was uncontested. However in the (35-39) division Melissa Ball Shaffer also went uncontested and earned best female poser in the finals. When the two went at it for the overall title, Coy was a unanimous winner.
When the men open class came on lightweight Glen Pacyna place second and the winner was Jerry Maitland Jr. In the men middleweight class Dan Hunter placed 2nd and the winner was Adam Furman. In the men open Lightheavyweight, 3rd place belong to Yohance Fleming, 2nd place belonged Jahi Perry and the winner was Ryan Riebau. When the three came together, Maitland Jr., Furman and Riebau vied for the overall title. Riebau being the better conditioned athlete unanimously took the decision and deserved the win.
The finals started off with the female NPA Pros. Boy did they start things off. As the audience of a couple of hundred cheered and got behind them with much energy. Toni Johnson competing in her first Pro show after winning a couple of state and National NPA titles finished 5th. Toni in order to win at this level will have to get her weight and overall conditioning down to low numbers. Cid Davis who took 4th place, presentation and routine will help her get closer to first place. 3rd place finisher Linda Carpenter still has the best symmetry of all but like Johnson needs too come in harder and smaller. 2nd place Gloria Knight McNeil presented the most muscle of all the ladies. Her routine was great and she’s an excellent poser. However she too, could drop 5-8 more pounds. The winner Lesa McCoy presented the best package and her conditioning was superb. This athlete will be tough for all to beat because she knows the meaning of conditioning and getting use to winning.
In the men Pro division 8th place went to Gordon Kinsey. Gordon has been here before but hasn’t been on stage in quite awhile. He’s going to have to be more active in order to compete at this level and finish in the top five. Keith Rissolo which was a little bit of surprise earned 7th place. Keith really struggle and couldn’t quite get it going against his competition. 6th place was claimed by newcomer Carl Frady III who made a gallant effort and shows a lot of promise at this level. 5th place was the last money prize in which Charlie Moss presentation clearly moved him into the slot. He was also sliced in his upper body. Charlie routine got a great round of applause. 4th place went to newcomer and big man Tim Sinz. If I may say this big guy can be the future of this organization. He’s a big young good looking athlete that in just a short time has moved up the chain. 3rd place went to Stephen Haywood who has the best symmetry in the male division. His conditioning was just a little off but he has the talent to win this competition. Second and first place was a battle of the titans and the two tied in score. Kent Bierly and Doug Hailey put on a show. They both wanted it and you could flip a coin and either athlete would do the placement justice. This year the champ and now 6Xs winner of this title belonged to Doug Hailey. Neither man dominated, they both did a splendid job. Kent Bierly has vowed to return in 2008 and get what he says is rightfully his. The officials lead by Head Judge Narva Jones Daniels, Stephan Kitchen, Sherrie Broome’, Marcus White, Arlessa Gray, JW Hicks, Mary Anna George, Daniel Moore, Debbie Cameron, Troy Crawley, Vernell Silas, Rochelle Silas, Nikita Silas, Hugh Hannah, Minnie Nolan, Michael Stewart, Yourdonus James, Roger Simmons and everybody that made the show a success, thank you! Until next year 2008 the NPA signs off for this contest. / Harry E. Silas
