2005 INBF Northern States Super Natural
By Marian Giallombardo
An amazing medieval set complete with 8-foot hand stenciled walls, flames and 10-foot pillars set the stage for the 4th annual Northern States Super Natural Bodybuilding, Fitness & Figure Championships. On April 30 nearly 60 competitors stormed the stage at McKinley High School in Buffalo, NY.
Giant jewel-adorned swords, etched medallions and Neils Andersen trophies were just some of the prizes awarded. The most coveted award — a WNBF pro card — was earned by the four new pros: Nicole Weekes (figure), Paul Iatomasi Sr., Brian Secord, and Angela Scott (bodybuilding).
Last year’s winners, Larry Baiz and Valarie Kelly took to the stage as they walked with the giant swords and ceremoniously placed them into a huge stone.
Two teens started off the evening. Dan Iatomasi, new to the NSSN stage had nice lines but not quite good enough to beat veteran NSSN competitor, Mason Fox. This kid is amazing! His dense muscles and proportioned body earned him the class win again this year.
Nicole Weekes, who also competed in figure and bodybuilding, was our only fitness competitor, and she looked great.
 
 
Next up were the women’s masters. These three ladies all did their homework. Debby Ohayon placed third. Pattie Meegan was hard and defined and took second, while Paula Franklin with her symmetrical physique and graceful performance placed first.
Men’s masters over 40 had a huge line up. Muscular and well proportioned, Paul Iatomasi Sr. took the top spot, second was muscular Kevin Jackson; ripped Joe Viteritti was third; Darryle Lee, fourth; John Fix, fifth; David Clark, sixth; Ed Mendez, seventh; Gary Baran, eighth and Brian Chapman was ninth.
Bruce Summers placed first in the master’s over 50 category. Next up was the woman’s novice class. Nicole Weekes had symmetry and shape and placed first. Much improved over last year, Debby Ohayon was second.
In the men’s novice class A veteran NSSN competitor Jefferey Powell had nice quads and traps and placed first (also won overall novice). Twanta Craig was second; Chris Koenig was third; David Clark, fourth; Lawrence Jackson, fifth and Bruce Summers was sixth.
In the novice class B, thickly muscled newcomer Richard Sharp earned the top spot. Billy Kocovski was second; Ed Mendez, third, John Fix, fourth; Gary Baran, fifth and Brian Chapman was sixth.
Eight lovely ladies graced the stage in the figure under 35 class. Nicole Weekes came from Florida to win the top spot and that is exactly what she did. She was poised, had nice shape and muscle tone and looked very professional. Her performance earned her a WNBF pro card. An extremely close second, by one point, was nicely detailed Heather Giudice. Adele Lehman placed third in this tough class. Tara Palmer was fourth; Natasha Bacheyie was fifth; Madeline Alvarado came in sixth; Joanne Gallo, seventh; and Venis Benitez was eighth.
Newcomer, Ann-Maria Figueroa had a pleasing toned body and placed first. Debby Ohayon, placed second and Vaso Kroto was third.
Women’s open lightweight had two very competitive ladies. No stranger to the NSSN stage, Tammy Patnode placed first. She continues to improve each year and was impressive. Pattie Meegan was hard and defined but was edged out of the top spot and placed second.
Women’s heavyweight, Angela Scott was hard and ripped. She deservedly earned the top spot. Thickly muscled Stephanie Foley placed second. Paula Franklin’s beautiful symmetry earned her third place against some tough competition. Adrienne Priebe placed fourth and Demary Checo was fifth.
Men’s bantamweight competitor, Geoffrey Heusinger was prepared again this year and once again won his class. In second place was Paul Stock. Paul had many audience members in tears as he performed his routine. Paul has MS and his efforts did not go unnoticed. What an inspiration he is!
Kevin Jackson came from North Carolina to compete. He was muscular with nice symmetry and placed first in the lightweight class. Darryle Lee was second and Kai Moy was third.
Men’s middleweight competitor Brian Secord earned the top spot and his shot at a pro card. He showcased highly-developed, thick, separated quads as well as well-balanced arms. In second place was Marc Frank. Marc’s hard work in the gym has paid off with his continued improvement. The youngest of the Iatomasi family, Dan, had an appealing V-taper and placed third.
Men’s light heavyweight competitor, Paul Iatomasi Jr. placed first with a well- proportioned physique. Joe Viteritti’s ripped physique earned him the second spot. Daniel Florestan was third; Mason Fox was fourth and Brian Turnbull was fifth.
The men’s heavyweight class was tough. There was a lot of hard muscle on stage from which to choose. Paul Iatomasi Sr.’s combination of symmetry and muscularity earned him the top honor. Thick and chiseled Nando Sala placed second as he was narrowly edged out of first. Ansel Shields was third; Devon Horsford was well proportioned but needed to be leaner, he was fourth. Irv Rosenthal was fifth.
The fight for the overall title was tough. All five gave it their best shot. In the end, Paul Iatomasi Sr. edged out the competition and went home with his WNBF pro card. He pulled the sword from the stone and savored his victory. Brian Secord was the top Canadian in the overall posedown and also went home as a WNBF pro.
The judges had to decide between the hard chiseled body of Angela Scott and Tammy Patnode, who displayed a nice combination of shape and muscle. But it was Angela’s day as she earned her WNBF pro card.
