Women’s Physique Athletes to Watch

Below are the three top contenders in the Women’s Physique division:

Natalia Abraham Coelho

The 2022 Women’s Physique Olympia champion and 2023 Olympia runner-up is already qualified for the 2024 Olympia because she is a past Olympia champion and ranked in the top three at the 2023 Olympia. If Coelho wins this contest, no 2024 Olympia qualification will be issued. If that happens, it would effectively block another athlete from securing an invite to the 2024 Olympia. Coelho is expected to bring an exquisite package to this show following her runner-up rank to Sarah Villegas in the 2023 Olympia in Orlando, FL, on Nov. 3, 2023.

Jeannie Feldman

Feldman previously won a pro show in the Sunshine State at the 2023 Tampa Pro. Feldman was alongside Coelho in the 2023 Olympia, ranking ninth overall. It would bode exceptionally well for Feldman’s 2024 season hopes if she secures an Olympia qualification by defeating a former Olympia champion.

Elena Aviles Romero

Romero was the champion of the 2023 Optimum Classic Pro show. She ranked 11th overall in the 2023 Olympia. She finished 13th overall in this contest in 2022 — her rookie season. She will likely be in the first callout for the 2023 edition.
