2004 NPC Emerald Cup

This year's edition saw the return of the
Light Heavyweight Division for the first
time since 1985 (one of the 3 Emerald Cups
I'd missed), and what a return it was!
After getting her feet wet with contests
in the fall of 2002, Nicole Berg trained
hard under the tutelage of former EC champ
Gerri Deach to fine tune her physique. No
doubt one of the best ever combined look
of muscular proportionality and aesthetics,
Nicole could have a very bright future in
the sport. Speaking of expanding divisions,
Figure featured 5 this year with close to
100 competitors. Had a technical problem
with my offstage camera which wasn't apparent
till after the fact :( so live and learn
I guess! Affected some of the group/trophy
photos too in case you're wondering why
all categories aren't represented on this
page. Overall, have lots onstage and a good
sampling of offstage/backstage which is
now updated and completed. Names and
placings corrections are always
appreciated. Beneath the thumbnails
are links to all photo galleries.
It's good to be back!
