STEVE STONE POSTHUMOUSLY AWARDED
IFBB PRO LEAGUE’S HIGHEST HONOUR
Steve Stone, NPC/IFBB Pro League Chief Expediter, suddenly passed away during the 2008 Olympia Weekend. Steve, 51, was a New York NPC Vice Chairman, working with Steve Weinberger. Steve was a contest promoter and competitive bodybuilder who won the light-heavyweght category at the 1990 North American Championships. Steve was best known as the Chief Expediter at NPC national events and the Olympia. Steve was a good friend and colleague to many in the NPC and IFBB Pro League; he was well respected, admired and loved by all, particularly by the athletes and competitors he so graciously served.
The IFBB Pro League is honoured to present its highest award, the ACHIEVEMENT MEDAL,
posthumously to Steve Stone. Steve’s wife, Andrea, who is an NPC/IFBB Pro League official and statistician,
accepted the award at the finals of the 2008 Mr. Olympia. Accompanying Andrea onstage
were longtime friends and colleagues Jim Manion, Chairman of the IFBB Pro League,
Steve Weinberger, New York NPC Chairman, and Master of Ceremonies and
IFBB Pro Athlete Rep Bob Cicherillo.
OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO STEVE’S FAMILY AND LOVED ONES.
