THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY ARNOLD CLASSIC!
SEE 3 SUPERB CONTESTS IN ONE GREAT DVD!
We present the COMPLETE FINALS for all three women’s classes - BODYBUILDING, FIGURE & FITNESS from the Veterans’ Memorial Auditorium in Columbus Ohio.
We shot amazing closeup footage from our key position in the front of the press pit, and edited this with the best footage from the 3 other cameras of Live Technologies. Every angle is covered making this the best, most comprehensive contest coverage we have offered.
The Finals DVD delivers all the exciting action from one of the world’s premiere women’s events. In the Fitness International contest, the sublimely athletic KIMBERLY SCHEIDELER-KLEIN proved to be too strong for Jen Hendershott and the rest of her opposition.
The gorgeous Figure International line-up was better than ever with GINA ALIOTTI winning for her first time at the Arnold Sports Festival from an outstanding runner-up in JENNIFER GATES. Gina is bound to be a serious threat at the Figure Olympia later this year.
In the Ms. International event, YAXENI ORIQUEN and DAYANA CADEAU were the two main contenders in this class with Yaxeni taking her 4th title at this event to now hold the record number of victories in the women’s competition. As usual, Californian Governor and the namesake of the event, Arnold Schwarzenegger, talked to the delighted winners on stage and added his legendary charm to this world class contest.
See COMPLETE RESULTS below.
The 3 winners were as follows:
YAXENI ORIQUEN - Ms International
KIM SCHEIDELER-KLEIN – Fitness International
GINA ALIOTTI – Figure International
SHOT WITH 4 CAMERAS AT THE FINALS!
What makes this DVD so special is that it is shot with 4 cameras. This exciting presentation bring you a bird's eye view of each competitor, from every angle from walk-on to the end of each section. Always bringing you the best possible angle and close-up on each competitor. We feel it is the best, most exciting women’s FINALS DVD we have ever produced.
