by Andrew Michalak
Most of countries will run their qualification contests to the 2012 World Womenís Championships in the upcoming weekend but those countries which need visas to enter the European Union have already revealed the names of their stars. And this is a really interesting lecture as those countries are the womenís physique sports superpowers!
Russia entered two world bodyfitness champions: Ekaterina Gamagina and Elina Gook. While Gook just finished her full of successes junior career and starts to compete in womenís division, Gamagina has already won all top IFBB awards except only one: bodyfitness overall title. And she is coming to Bialystok to grasp this one! Good luck!
She will not have an easy way. First, in her height category she will meet 2009 world champion Katarzyna Kozakiewicz (Poland), Europeans runner-up Eva Rusan (Croatia), her Russian team-mate and serious challenger: Aminat Tuleubaeva.
If passing to the overall, she may face two-time world champion Zrinka Fiöer (Croatia), if Zrinka would beat two-time IFBB World Cup winner Anna Szczotka (Poland), coming back to the stage Russian star Nelly Tsyshkevich, former world bodybuilding champion Alina Cepurnienie (Lithuania) and new Ukrainian star Yuliya Horyachun. But there will be no two very demanding opponents in this class: 2010 world champion Olga Muntian (Ukraine) and 2011 bronze medal winner Kati Alander (turned pro).
In the bodyfitness +168 cm category Belarus entered European Championships runner-up Anastasia Gurina, who will compete against bronze medal winner Olga Karavayeva (Ukraine). No former world champions: Yulia Ushakova and Yulia Zabelina (both of Russia), Evgeniya Prutskova (Ukraine) and Nina Furseth (Norway). Who will be the next world champion? Rare opportunity for younger stars!
Fantastic sport quality could be expected in menís fitness. Estonia nominated 2011 world champion Oleg Anissimov. He will meet 2010 European champion Konstantin Nekrasov (Russia), who returns after the Achilles tendon injury at the 2010 Words in Mexico, two incredible Ukrainians: Fedir Khasalov and Nazar Kharkhun as well as European Championships bronze medal winner Mariusz Lewandowski (Poland). Fitness routines of these athletes are amazing!
In womenís fitness three top stars will not participate: Alevtyna Titarenko (Ukraina), Natalia Nazarenko-Kiivikas (Estonia) and Tatiana Dvortsova (Russia), so the others will have a good opportunity to fight for the top trophies: former world champion Natalia Chukaeva (Russia), former world junior champion Oksana Orobets (Ukraina), Asian champion Tatiana Volkova (Kazakhstan) and Marta Aquiar (Uruguay) who just won her next South American title.
In womenís bodybuilding we will see the biggest IFBB amateur star, Slovak bodybuilder Jana Purdjakova, who won the overall title at the latest two World Championships having altogether eight world titles and being tied in this area with the famous Egyptian bodybuilder El-Shahat Mabrouk. But Mabrouk has already finished his competitive bodybuilding while Purdjakova will come to Bialystok to grasp the ninth gold medal and take the position of the most successful amateur bodybuilder in the IFBB history.
Ukraine enters 2012 European champion Maryna Alf and Russia Ė 2010 European overall winner Natalia Vtyurina. Plus 1999 world overall winner Ewa Sedkowska (Krynska) of Poland. This will be a very excited meet.
