Joe, where did you find that listed? i don't recall ever seeing it in magazines.

I was at that show; Pete was electrifying. I missed a free night out with my class mates and one of our professors but it was worth it.

That's when i decided to move to Rochester, hoping to duplicate Pete's success.

Phenomenal!

Phenomenal!

The announcement for the show was here: Apr 11, 1970 annc sh 10-69 p 56.

I do not have a ref for the win, but what probably happened was since I had the date when the contest was, I later saw a list of contest wins for Pete which included this so I put it where I had the date.
 

Here are events I have for Pete. If he did not win, the winner is listed in the brackets.

We recently learned that IFBB Pro Bodybuilder, Sharon (Arrildt) Marvel, has passed. One of the early pioneers of female bodybuilding, Sharon had an amazing physique which quickly propelled her to the pro ranks and made her a favorite amongst fans and judges.

Born in Brackley, Northamptonshire, England, April 14, 1964, Sharon began training in 1982. In 1986 she won both the Eastern Shore and the Maryland State Championships. She went on to win the lightweight and overall at the NPC Jr. Nationals in 1987 and in 1989 earned her IFBB Pro card by winning the middleweight class at the NPC Nationals. Sharon competed in several pro shows including 4 appearances in the Ms. Olympia, placing as high as 5th.

A long time friend and supporter of FemaleMuscle, Sharon also worked for us on Talklive for several years and developed a huge fan following.

Thank you for the years you shared with us through bodybuilding and for the wonderful memories we have of you. Rest in Peace Sharon, we will truly miss you.
