IPL PRO BIKINI!
Karen Basler (red) competed in the 2015 IPL NaturalMag Classic last August, which was the first ever IPL contest. At this show she placed second in Open Bikini. Karen then went on to compete in the 2015 IPL North Atlantic Championship the following month. At this show she landed in the second place spot once again. This time right behind first place winner Beth Cote. Finally, on her third try, at the 2016 IPL Natural Gainz Magazine Classic this past March Karen placed 1st in Open Bikini, earning her IPL Bikini Pro-Qualified Status.
Beth Cote (blue) competed in the 2015 IPL North Atlantic Championship, last September. At that show Beth won 1st place in Bikini Open, earning her IPL Bikini Pro Card. One week later Beth Cote landed on the front cover of the September/October issue of Natural Bikini Magazine.
Basler and Cote faced-off at the first ever IPL PRO show, the 2016 New Jersey Pro/Am on May 21 in Jersey City, NJ. BOTH of these stunning IPL Bikini PROS looked INCREDIBLE. But, in the end, it was Karen Basler who was crowned the first ever IPL Bikini Pro Champion. Beth Cote in 2ND. Michael Brooks Photography.
