It’s almost that time of year again, when a new IFBB Bikini pro will be awarded the prestigious title of Ms. Bikini Olympia.
The real question is, will history repeat itself and a new pro will take the crown, or will Ashley Kaltwasser, Ms. Bikini Olympia 2013, be able to do something no other competitor has been able to do since the inception of the division in 2010, and win back to back titles.
With all of the former Bikini Olympia winners sitting this one out (so sad to not see one of my favorites, Nathalia Melo, Bikini Olympia 2012, take the stage) it leaves Kaltwasser defending her title against quite a few newcomers along with other pros who have graced the big stage in previous years.
Who do you think will walk away with the prestigious title of Ms. Bikini Olympia 2014?
Here’s some of our favorites (in no particular order) who we will see strutting their stuff on the biggest stage in the IFBB this weekend:

Ashley Kaltwasser (Ms. Bikini Olympia 2013)
Her body is absolutely phenomenal but her posing and makeup could use some improvements. If she makes her posing more fluid and adds some personality she could have a real shot at bringing home the crown for a second year in a row.
The “booty queen” of the fitness industry is in it to win it. Don’t believe me? Just take a look at her Instagram and you’ll see she’s not playing games this year. She is the only competitor to have attended every single Bikini Olympia since the division was created in 2010. If she sticks to solid posing and tones it down a bit onstage she may finally get the title she’s been after for all these years.
This girl has got some glutes! I personally think she may be in line to take the Booty Queen title from Latona. She has a great physique for bikini but her posing is a little robotic and gymnast-y (she’s a former gymnast), if she brings her A game and tightens up her routine she may have a shot at the top 5 this year.
This woman has quickly become one of my favorites in the game. She’s real, down to earth and her Instagram isn’t all about half naked selfies. She has sass and poise onstage as well as a banging bod. She’s been dominating every competition this year, placing first in the 2013 New York Pro & 2012 Pittsburgh Pro. She may give Kaltwasser a run for her money.
Some say her posing is over the top and most people didn’t know what to think when she showed up in an all black bikini at this year’s Tampa Pro. But she ended up winning that competition and has been consistently in the top 3 this season. We’ll see if her over the top posing will help her stay at the top at the O. The real question on my mind is what color bikini is she gonna rock? Will she go back to her classic yellow that she’s known for or switch it up again?
She’s a new to the pro game but absolutely knocked it out of the park, winning her Pro Debut at this year’s Dallas Europa, earning her a spot at Olympia. She’s gorgeous, her posing is pretty solid and she’s got a good look for bikini, not too hard and not too soft. This newcomer, like Kaltwasser last year, is pretty unknown. She might shake things up just like Ashley did in 2013 and place high.
She didn’t break the top 10 at last year’s Olympia but despite that she’s been having an outstanding season this year. This former beauty queen won her last two shows, 2014 IFBB Dallas Pro & 2014 Orange County Muscle Classic Pro, setting her up to be confident going into the biggest show of the year. Will this blonde beauty continue her winning streak? We shall see.
