Ms. Olympia Lenda Murray Talks Talent

Spread the love


In an interview with Shawn Ray over at the Muscular Development forums, 8-time Ms. Olympia Lenda Murray revealed her perspective on the modern female bodybuilding talent pool:

“The worse thing (about women’s bodybuilding) is the depth of the competitors pool. It’s my opinion that a percentage of the ladies today would not have been as successful if we had more well rounded ladies to choose from. There’s a percentage of figure competitors that would have chosen bodybuilding if Figure were not an option. The worse is…….we’re seeing some women representing the best, when the reality is………..they would not have made the cut in the past.

Take the poll now! Is Lenda Murray right …would modern competitors have a hard time competing in her era? Or is she completely wrong…and would have a hard time competing with the modern women?

    I have a question I’d love to hear Lenda Murray comment on since she’s analytical and articulate on the subject of today’s competitors- what does she think of Yaxeni Oriquen-Garcia? Yaxeni was in better form than Iris at this year’s Ms. International in March and even more notably superior at the recent 2010 Ms. Olympia (clearly more cut, ripped, better posing than Iris), but she came in second-place both times. Yaxeni is a former Ms. Olympia and 5-time Ms. International, but it seems that lately, the voting isn’t based on merit of the moment, but cumulative career merit (like the Oscars oftentimes), with some sentiment also factored in by those hoping Iris may challenge Lenda’s eight Ms. Olympia victories. Nothing against Iris- she’s amazing and a real champion, but why isn’t Yaxeni getting the victories or the press she deserves?
