Today's Figure phenoms are three of Europe's brightest Bodyfitness stars.
We've featured one of them, Swiss Miss Tea Save, briefly on FMS before, and you have seen Hungarian Arnold Classic Europe champ Szandra Hidasi (whether you knew so or not) if you watched our Clip of the Week II on 7th October, while vascular Raquel Arranz, reigning Spanish Bodyfitness champion, is new to the blog.
Raquel, who hails from the Basque Country, has had a good year. Aside from the Spanish title, she won her class at the Olympia Amateur in Spain this year, and finished second in her class at the European Championships. Little wonder she's smiling.
I believe in strong women, says Raquel, who has a thing for horses, is not averse to holding a falcon for a photoshoot, nor to a bit of pole dancing.
We like her, we like her a lot. Those veins...
You'll need to request Raquel on Instagram, but her Facebook is open to all. And if you fancy a bit of Raquel doing her thing in a thing for Scitec at the ACE Expo, click here.
Being from Hungary and all, szexy Szandra has had the lens of female muscle photography legend Zoltan Veigh turned upon her on more than one occasion. Above we see Szandra as she was in 2013, when she finished 6th in her (short) Bodyfitness class at the Arnold Classic Europe, cos I know some of you love this comparison thing.
And here she was in Barcelona in 2016, winning not just her (still short, she hasn't grown in every direction) class but also the overall gold medal and pot.
She seems to have got a tad more confident about popping her togs on the chair, too.
All good! And I'm sure if you hang around Szandra's Instagram a few more of those, er, arty Richard Gyrcz photos might turn up. Szandra's gaining quite a few fans on the forums for her "unique" look. Shots like those I doubt will make her less popular.
Tea, who won the 2015 Arnold Classic Europe Junior Bodyfitness title, repeated the feat again this year, and won her (tall) class. She has also recently won her Bodyfitness class at the Ben Weider Legacy Cup in Finland. I think this may add up to a pro card.
And she's still 20. Born in 1995. Unreal!
We thought, when we featured her on FMS previously, that she might be Europe's answer to Shanique Grant (in the young, over-achieving in the Figure/Bodyfitness division sense). Well, with Shanique off to flex her muscles in Physique, perhaps the US needs an answer to Tea. Unless... Tea starts packing more muscle on her 5'6" (1.7m) frame and moves on up to Physique after she goes pro. Oh, please!
Anyway, you'll find out if that fantasy turns into reality on Tea's Instagram.
Another European Figure phenom tomorrow...
