Basualdo is already qualified for the 2023 Bikini Olympia, scheduled for Nov. 2-5, 2023, in Orlando, FL, thanks to her win at the 2023 Grl Pwr Championship show. Basualdo’s other contest appearance so far in the 2023 season was at the 2023 Pittsburgh Pro, where she placed third to winner Aimee Leann Delgado.
If Basualdo wins the Southern USA Pro, she will block another athlete from qualifying for the Bikini Olympia. For the 2023 season, only pro show winners advance to the Olympia stage.
Harley finished second at the 2023 New York Pro, which Delgado won. Harley was second to Basualdo at the Grl Pwr Championship show as well. While an Olympia-caliber competitor, competing in the 2021 Bikini Olympia contest, Harley placed out of the top 15. After taking the 2022 season off, she’s been in contention for wins twice in 2023.
Harley’s two second-place finishes tie for the highest rankings in her pro career. This could be the show she finally scores a first pro win and returns to the Olympia stage.
Herrera was fourth in the Grl Pwr Championship contest but won the Over 40 Masters division. She competed in the 2023 Klash Series Pro, winning the Over 40 Masters show and placing 10th in the Open.
If Herrera brings her best physique to the Souther USA Pro, she could score the upset and qualify for the 2023 Olympia. Herrera is already qualified for the 2023 Masters Olympia in the Bikini division, scheduled for Aug. 26-27, 2023, in Romania.
