Travis Ely looking great alongside a total of 164 competitors at the Los Angeles Convention Center amidst 460 booths and displays, other sports events and record breaking crowds.

And a win for Travis is also a win for Jake Sawyer who coached him through his training, nutrition and posing even right up when he was on stage. Outstanding!
