Carter settles for 13th


Share post:

BARBADIAN NICOLE CARTER failed to crack the top ten in the women’s physique of this month’s St Louis professional contest in the United States.

Carter, who turned 30 last month, took 13th place among a field of 22 in the tough competition dominated by Americans.

This was the third time that Carter was stepping on stage in the pro ranks, since earning her pro card in fitness at the 38th Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Championships in Aruba in 2010.

Rising pro Autumn Swansen was the unquestioned winner, flexing her way to her first pro victory. She made the switch from fitness where she didn’t fare well due to her overwhelming muscularity.

She successfully made the transition in her physique debut by winning in unanimous fashion. Sheronica Henton from Kentucky edged out Orlando’s Danielle Reardon by one point for the second place spot. Leila Thompson finished in fourth and Lona Muttoni was in fifth.

In the men’s 212 bodybuilding, it was no surprise that South Carolina’s Charles Dixon dominated the field. It earns him a spot in the Olympia line-up in Vegas later this year. This was his second pro victory in the men’s 212 bodybuilding division. The first came by way of the 2014 Chicago Pro. (MK)
