Anyone knows whether the Arnold Amateur judging panel is run by the IFBB or it is independent?
She is certainly in better conditioning than Iris but that's because Iris complies to the IFBB judging criteria. Iris is capable of much bigger and better things as she has proved in the past. Then the IFBB changed the rules, Iris I suppose she prefers to win and collect the checks than push the envelope and be penalized.
Sad but true.
If the Arnold Amateur judges by different criteria it is very possible that they will soon attract the freaky-est athletes, that will make the pros look like amateurs.
Maria Rita-Bello looks smashing but even with the breaks on, Iris still has perfect lines.

you can compare her to her 2006 extra large shape, just before the change in the IFBB judging
