NPC LAKELAND CLASSIC HISTORY
LAKELAND CLASSIC HISTORY (final event this coming Saturday, Sept. 3rd) IFBB Pro Debi Laszewski guest posing at Lakeland Classic prior to her highest placing at the Mr. Olympia LLC that year, which she matched 4x times along with a 2nd place in 2012 prior to female bodybuilding being retired from the Olympia. That guest posing in Lakeland was a preview of Debi's reign as the woman that consistently pushed Iris till the end. https:
Debi gained her Monsta Clothing sponsorship that year too and continues to appear in their advertisements and artwork a venture run by another great local show promoter and co-owner of Monsta Clothing Tony Tony Carolyn Curtis. Local show promotions like local competitors have not only been a backbone of the sport, but the fiber of its heart and soul.
