Holland Figure Times Two

White Hot: Figure Pro Mascha Tieken in Las Vegas.

Today, a Western European theme as we catch up with figure girls Mascha Tieken and Nina Loos, a pair of gym owners from the Netherlands who have been working out and/or competing for half their lives.

Mascha is back on the studio and the IFBB pro (who turned 39 in January) looks better than ever in her latest shoot from last year’s Olympia just two weeks after a competing in Atlantic City. As you’ll see in this highlight, the former bodybuilder can still flex with silky intensity, combining power and femininity presenting her contest-shape physique in lacy lingerie.

Not to be overlooked, Nina doesn’t quite have the lengthy resume of her fellow Hollander, but this 28-year-old has been training since the age of fourteen and has already traveled to four different countries — Belgium, Germany, Italy and the United States — along her journey as a bodyfitness and figure competitor. At the ‘08 Netherlands Grand Prix, she finished ahead of at least one pro competitor and was later selected to compete in the Arnold Amateur show.

Dutch Delight: Nina Loos smiles in her debut.

The rising young international star proved to be a blossoming physique model during her eye-catching debut photoshoot in Columbus last year. Here’s a quick glimpse of the fetching blonde showing off her curly hair and chiseled muscles in a lovely black outfit trimmed with hoop earrings and stylish boots.

Nina went on to do more striking work in front of the camera, seizing an opportunity to be a cover girl for a 2010 calendar shoot. Here she is looking fit and fearless posing alongside ominous statues in front of the historic Het Steen, a magnificent medieval castle located in Antwerp, Belgium. More pics and info can be found on her blog.
