Athletes to Watch
While the roster at this contest is larger than most, as is often the case given the popularity of the Bikini division, the athletes below are still likely to remain favorites in the judges’ eyes.
Kaltwasser is the winningest athlete in any division of the IFBB Pro League with 37 wins. Her goal is 40 pro victories. However, she has yet to win a show in 2023.
Kaltwasser’s last appearance was at the 2023 Pittsburgh Pro, where she placed second to winner Aimee Leann Delgado. As a three-time Bikini Olympia champion, Kaltwasser is eligible for the Olympia for life. Still, she would love to not only lock up her 38th pro win, and if she does, she’ll block another athlete from qualifying for the 2023 Olympia.
The 2023 Klash Series Southern USA Pro winner is also in this contest. Like Kaltwasser, Harley is eligible for the Olympia already, but is looking to build her own legacy in the sport, and that means winning more contests.
The matchup between Harley and Kaltwasser will be great for the fans to watch as both are hungry for the show win, as their Olympia qualifications are already locked in.
Watchman has one victory in the 2023 season — the 2023 California Night of Champions contest. She ranked fourth at the Wasatch Warrior Pro. The field in this contest is larger and features a former Bikini Olympia winner, so Watchman will have to be at her best to win.
This is one of three Bikini division contests taking place on the weekend of June 3-4, 2023. The others are at the Toronto Pro Supershow in Toronto, ON, Canada, and the Miami Beach Muscle Pro-AM contest in Miami, FL.
