Amazing numbers come from the Organizing Committee of the upcoming IFBB Women’s Worlds in Kiev, Ukraine: nearly 300 athletes have been nominated to these Championships by 50 countries!It is an outstanding progress, compared to 148 athletes (38 countries) in 2011 and 180 athletes (38 countries) in 2012. What’s interesting, the number of nominated athletes has grown up in almost all categories, with the biggest expansion of bikini fitness, where there are around 30 competitors in each class.
So, there are over 100 competitors and only 12 medals. In three categories a real success will be to enter the semifinal top 15.
