Iris Kyle ought to consider a new nickname. After winning her record 7th Ms. International title at the Arnold Classic on March 1 in Columbus, Ohio, she might consider “Game Over” as she once again rode a perfect score to nab the $25,000 first-place prize. The seven titles are just one short of the Texan’s record eight Ms. Olympia crowns. Unfortunately for Miami’s Yaxeni Oriquen-Garcia, who has come up on the losing end of many of those Kyle wins, second place was again the best she could do. Competing in the 50th professional show of her career, the five-time Ms. International settled for the $13,000 second-place prize. Rounding out the top five were Jupiter, FL’s Debi Laszewski in third, Slovenia’s Brigita Brezovac in fourth, and Canada’s Cathy LeFrancois in fifth.
