hoard /hɔːd / noun a "wealth deposit", a collection of valuable objects or artefacts
Today, FMS opens up its hoard of Russian female muscle old and new.
Olga Tupisyna - the Russian Laura Madge?!
Beautiful Natalya Yariz
Marina Alf, Maria Stukova, Evgenia Vasilyeva
RUSSIA IN MOTION #1
Daria Diossi WFF Universe 2015
Yes, she won. And the NABBA Universe (see FMS passim).
Anastasia Motorina, Olga Shestoperova
Queen of Fitness Oksana Grishina
And next, the face (and body) that launched a thousand "Barbie is a beast" stories!
Julia Vins (see also previously on FMS).
Ekateina Gamagina - yes, that's her back!
Irina Mishina aka Irina Veselova
IFBB pro Olga Puzanova
RUSSIA IN MOTION #2
Elena Shportun IFBB Worlds 2006
One of our most valuable Russian artefacts. Pure female muscle gold.
More of Elena's ever memorable performances can be found here, here and here.
Always had a soft (/hard) spot for Nelli Tsyshkevich
Prime Russian female muscle beefcake Liudmila "Oh my Goshko!" Goshko and those astonishing pecs of hers, as seen last year at the EBBF European Championships.
Beautiful (I may have used that adjective before today) Olga Belyakova
Yulia Kalinova - now that is ripped!
Russia's got Bodyfitness with the stunning Antonina Lazukova, the very perky Lyudmila Nikitina, and the obviously rather excitable Natasha Markelova.
The mighty Alevtina Goroskinskaya
Say hello to Lyubov Dreskova, I'm sure we'll be seeing her again.
And for our last muscle beauty in pictures, probably my favourite Russian - despite the fierce competition - the former NABBA Ms Universe, MIA since her (one and only?) Physique appearance at the Arnold Europe a couple of years ago. It's the magnificence of Maria Bulatova (formerly known as Maria Kuzmina). *SWOOOON!*
But we leave you today with some immortal muscle sexiness.
RUSSIA IN MOTION #3
Victoria Zabourdieva NABBA Worlds 2002 & 2003
She finished lower in 2003 (4th) than she had in 2002 (3rd). Go figure!
