Mr. And Ms. Sioux Empire Championships

July 25, 2014, 10:45 PM by Elliot Nathan

Mr. And Ms. Sioux Empire Championships
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Mr. and Ms. Sioux Empire Natural Body Building and Figure Championships flexes its muscles Saturday, at the Orpheum Theatre in Sioux Falls.  The amateur event attracts the region's top talent, and gives competitors the opportunity to turn pro.

This weekend, Sioux Falls will open its doors to some of the area's most fit athletes, as the Orpheum plays host to Mr. And Ms. Sioux Empire, showcasing the top amateur body builders, figure competitors and models.

"It's the Mr. and Ms. Sioux Empire natural body building and figure championships  - a body building show. I started it three years ago and it's grown each year. I had about 27 the first year, 35 last year, and I'm up to 47 competitors who will now compete on Saturday," promoter Warren Egebo said.

The 3rd annual Mr and Ms. Sioux Empire championships is sanctioned by the National Gym Association and is drug-tested pro qualifier, giving those who compete the chance to turn pro, and eventually compete for cash prizes.

"A pro-qualifier show like myself, in the next level up they can win cash awards. One of my shows in Philadelphia, my largest show, the Mr and Ms. Natural Philadelphia body building show, I gave out about $6,000 in cash awards to pro athletes," Egebo said.

One of this weekend's competitors is already a professional in another sport.  Sioux Falls Storm standout, and IFL Defensive Player of the Year, Tyler Knight, will be performing in his second show.  Knight has put in weeks of hard work and dedication to prepare for the event.

"I've worked real hard. Coming out after the season I had maybe a week off from all of the activity I was doing during the season. I have basically three weeks of prep time, so it's been a lot of weight room, a lot of cardio, and most importantly just great eating," competitor Tyler Knight said.

Tyler knows the level of competition at Mr. and Ms. Sioux Empire will be as tough as any is the region, but he's ready for opportunity to showcase his physique and come away with his professional bodybuilding card.

"My goal right now is just to bring home some hardware and bring home the trophy. The first time I did the show I just did it more or less just to see how good I could be as far as staying focused, staying on my diet, and staying on that regiment of being cosistant. Now that I've done that and accomplished that my goal is to go to every show and win," Knight said.

The event begins with pre-judging Saturday at noon at the Orpheum Theatre.  The Finals are set for 6:00.  Tickets start at $15, and can be purchased at the box office on Saturday.
