Bikini Division Athletes to Watch

Below are three Bikini athletes likely to be in contention for the crown:

Marie-Eve Duchesneau

Marie-Eve Duchesneau has competed three times in 2024 but has yet to win a pro show. She received much attention for her bronze finish at the 2024 Bikini International UK contest and followed that with two second-place finishes. If she claims a win at the DC Pro, she will qualify for the Olympia for the second time in her three-year career.

Tara Grier

Tara Grier finished one spot ahead of Duchesneau in that 2024 Bikini International UK contest, which was won by Vania Auguste. Still, Grier has not clinched a pro victory in 2024.

Grier’s most recent appearance was at the 2024 Pittsburgh Pro, where she finished fifth overall. She ranked third at the 2023 DC Pro, so she is familiar with the stage and environment. 

Iulia Baba

Iulia Baba is coming off a fifth-place finish at the 2024 Miami Muscle Beach Pro in Miami, FL, one week before this show. This is her sixth contest of the 2024 season.

Baba’s best finish is silver at the 2024 Klash Series Southern USA Championships Pro. Her worst was 15th at the 2024 Pittsburgh Pro. She competed at the 2023 Olympia competitor, where she tied for 16th.
