New IPL Figure Pro, Melanie Giroux!
Apparently two was the charm for IPL Figure competitor, Melanie Giroux at the 2017 2nd Annual IPL West Coast Pro/Am on Saturday September 30th in Rancho Cordova, CA.
After placing 2nd in Figure Open at the IPL California Championship back in May, Giroux was back with an improved look. But, it would not be easy.
Hot on Giroux’s heels was an impressive IPL newcomer, Valeria Cota. Giroux and Cota were neck and neck throughout Prejudging. However, in the end, Giroux pulled ahead for the win. By… One. Single. Point.
That being said, in order to achieve the coveted IPL Figure Pro Card, Giroux would also need to hit a minimum point total. At this contest that minimum was 126 points out of a max of 180. What was Giroux’s score? 129. With that, Melanie Giroux became the IPL’s newest Figure Pro.
IPL Pro Figure is incredibly competitive. With the likes of Pros such Yady Cedeno, Alisha Msprettydaisy Gray, Christy Byxbee, Kaylin Payne, and Pro Champion Mary Onyango, it will be interesting to see how Melanie matches up. Michael Brooks Photography.
