Winner — Maria Acosta

This was Acosta’s third pro show of the 2024 season. The third time was the charm. She was last onstage at the 2024 Pittsburgh Pro, finishing fourth. This is her first pro win and Olympia qualification. It came in her third pro season.

Second Place — Iulia Baba

This is Baba’s fourth show of the 2024 season, resulting in her highest placing thus far. She and Hamilton were separated by a single point on the scorecards.

Baba is trying to qualify for the 2024 Olympia for the second straight season. She must win a pro show by Sept. 15, 2024, to earn that qualification.

Third Place — Brittany Hamilton

Hamilton is in her sixth pro season. This was her third pro show of 2024. Her best result was second at the 2024 Wasatch Warrior Pro. Hamilton is trying to make it to the Olympia stage for the second time in her career. She was last there in 2022, ranking outside the top 15.

Other Notes

This was one of two Bikini division shows that occurred over the weekend. The other was at the 2024 Optimum Classic Pro. Three-time Bikini Olympia champion Ashley Kaltwasser secured her 45th career pro win.
