At the 2016 IPL Southwest Grand Prix Pro/Am on September 4th in Tempe, AZ Danniel Giraldo descended upon the stage with confidence, excitement, and high hopes. Blending a nice balance of muscularity, symmetry, and presentation, Giraldo was a crowd pleaser.
Needing a minimum of 168 points for the IPL PQ, he landed 176 and became the IPL’s newest PRO Bodybuilder. Oh, and did I mention HE IS ONLY 19!!!!
Only the second teenager to achieve IPL PRO status, Danniel G is in great company as he joins IPL Women’s Athletic PRO, Texan Kristy Janak who is also 19. AND, rumor has it that Danniel may by hitting the IPL stage right away at the 2016 IPL Texas State Pro/Am on October 8th for his PRO debut as well as a couple of Amateur Open classes. A photo op with Janak and Giraldo in Texas is a must! Michael Brooks Photography
