The 2008 IFBB North American Bodybuilding & Figure Championships will be held this upcoming weekend. They are open to residents of the USA, Canada and Mexico, and since pro cards are awarded this show attracts the best of the best.
Last year Maria Segura came from Mexico and won the light heavyweight class and overall which qualified her for IFBB pro status. She caused a bit of a stir when she came back a few months later at the 2008 Arnold Classic as an amateur where she also won the overall.
