Since there is NO Ms. Olympia this year, Jake and Crystal Wood of 'Wings of Strength' in collaboration with promoter Tim Gardner hosted the 'Rising Phoenix World Championship' for the Women Bodybuilders. One of the largest purses in bodybuilding was very generously presented in the form of a $50,000 cash prize plus a Wings of Strength custom Jeep.
This competition was compiled from athletes that qualified for the Olympia from last year, plus the winners and highest in points standing from the qualifying shows this year. There were a few special invitees for this inaugural event.
