I never liked the ideal of having two Ms. O's. They should of settle for one champion.
To be fair to them, it was tried and dropped after one year, though the weight divisions still stayed until 2004. At least we finally got to see a Brit win in Andrulla for the 'lightweight' category. There is something to be said about having mutiple categories/divisions (as long as there's an 'overall title' as you say, but is fairly judged), as they do at National Level, as the shorter/smaller (but often just as well developed for their height) women don't get a look in amongst the bigger, taller ladies. I suspect there were lots of compliants in that regard after the 1999 contest, wherby all the big ladies dominated the top 5 (Andrulla in great shape only came 6th).
