2023 Musclecontest Patriots Challenge Pro Bikini Division Preview


The 2023 IFBB Pro League Musclecontest Patriots Challenge Pro show will take place on Saturday, July 8, 2023, in Las Vegas, NV. Fifteen competitors will face the judges with hopes of winning the contest and scoring a qualification to the 2023 Olympia Weekend in Orlando, FL, set for the weekend of Nov. 2-5, 2023.

Three-time Bikini Olympia champion Ashley Kaltwasser has already qualified for the 2023 Olympia. Still, she stands a chance to add to her legendary record of achievements with a win in this show. Should Kaltwasser claim gold, she would become the first bodybuilder to ever win 40 IFBB pro shows.

Ashley Kaltwasser

Every time Ashley Kaltwasser competes, there’s a chance history will be made. She’s the only IFBB Pro League athlete to have amassed 30 pro wins. She will attempt her 40th pro win at this contest. She is certainly a favorite to win the show, given her impressive 2023 season thus far, comprising two show wins at the 2023 Mile High Pro and the 2023 Nevada State Pro.

Ruth Montes

Montes has competed four times so far season. She finished out of the top 15 twice but placed third at the 2023 Wasatch Warrior Pro. She was onstage against Kaltwasser at the 2023 Mile High Pro, where Montes finished eighth overall. The third-year pro seeks her first Olympia qualification and will need the best performance of her 2023 season so far to claim it in Las Vegas.

Ashley Hampton

Hampton has competed in two pro shows in 2023. She was fourth at the 2023 Charlotte Pro and seventh at the 2023 Klash Series Pro. She can make the first callout in this lineup, where anything can happen. Hampton, Montes, and the rest of the field will play defense against Kaltwasser, who’s already Olympia-qualified. If Kaltwasser wins, no one is offered the Olympia invite.

Other Notes

This is one of three pro-Bikini division shows taking place on the weekend of July 7-9, 2023. Bikini athletes will compete at the 2023 Republic of Texas show on Saturday, July 8, and the 2023 Mr. Big Evolution Pro in Portugal on Sunday, July 9.
