Federation's British finals and Supershow will award the chance to win Elite Pro card

THE British Physique Alliance (BPA) has partnered with Dr Waqaas Mohammed [Dr Vic] – and are offering two routes to become an IFBB Elite Pro.  

On October 25 and 26 at the Thistle Hotel, Heathrow, London, the federation will host the BPA Dr Vic Supershow. It boasts a £20,000 prize fund and offers invitations to compete in the IFBB Elite Pro Night of Champions. The competition will be held in the same venue that evening.

The BPA will also be inviting winners of its British Championships on September 29 to compete in the IFBB Elite Pro Night of Champions.

BPA president Helen O'Reilly said: "The BPA is only in its second season. But we have been overwhelmed already by the positive reviews and comments from competitors, their families, friends and sponsors. This has inspired us to do even more to give back to the athletes.

"Dr Vic shares this vision. He aims to inspire young people not only in business, but also in health and fitness. An accomplished competitor himself, he experienced some serious failings in the many organisations running shows in the UK. He noticed the BPA was setting new standards of professionalism and care for the athletes. This matched his vision to build up the UK bodybuilding and fitness scene and leave a legacy."

An unbeatable partnership to host the IFBB Elite Pro show

O’Reilly has been involved in the bodybuilding and fitness scene for more than 30 years. A previous competitor with British, European and Miss Universe titles, also one of TV’s original Gladiators – Panther – she understands things from a competitor’s perspective. 

O'Reilly has judged all over the world at European, World Championships, the Arnold Amateur and pro shows. She also promotes the Masters Allstars, Rising Stars and the English Grand Prix, which is now in its 10th year. 

Dr Vic recognised her knowledge of the sport and how to run a show. He realised that, combined with his business skills and passion for the sport, they could form an unbeatable partnership.

The pair are also delighted to bring back the iconic Night of Champions. This will give athletes the chance to compete at the highest level in the UK as part of the IFBB Elite Pro organisation.

The event – with $37,500 prize money – is just the beginning of a new era in the UK. The promoters have other exciting plans for the future, including a fitness expo next year

This date and venue for this year’s contest were booked initially as an independent show. But discussions and meetings presented an opportunity to create a truly international event.

On the advice of the Elite Pro organisation, Dr Vic and O'Reilly have decided to hold three categories this first year: Bikini, Men’s Physique and Bodybuilding. They intend to add more categories next year.

The IFBB Elite Pro Night of Champions will be held in the Aviation Suite at the Thistle Hotel, Terminal 5 at Heathrow. This makes it ideal for those travelling from abroad and convenient for competitors in the UK.

The event will be held just two weeks after the Arnold Sports Festival Europe. So the promoters hope to see many world class pros take part.

Pros from Australia, Barbados, Germany, Spain, Eastern Europe and the UK have already registered their intent to compete.
