As a result of the National Bodybuilding Championships being held in NS this year, we have changed the qualification rules (with the permission of the CBBF). Athletes placing top 5 in their class will be eligible to compete at the upcoming national event. Those that place FIRST in their class will be qualified for the current year and following year only.
Please note that there is no "transference" of qualification from masters to open classes. ie - if you qualify thru the masters class, this does not qualify you for the open classes. However, the reverse of this is true -> if you qualify for an open class and then meet the age requirement you are eligible to compete as a master.
Also note that this modification to qualification only pertains to bodybuilding this year (and not figure, fitness, bikini, or physique).
