Mattingly Captures Top 10 Finish At Arnold Classic

Former SCR-I graduate Jessie Mattingly finished 7th in the Physique division at the Arnold Classic.

When he's back home in Memphis, Jesse Mattingly is a regular at the gym at the Scotland County Fitness Center.

All that time pumping iron has paid off for the Scotland County R-I graduate. Mattingly brought home a top 10 finish from the 2013 Arnold Classic in his first appearance in the world of Professional Body Building.

Mattingly traveled to Columbus, OH to take part in the 25th Annual Arnold Classic, named after Arnold Schwarzenegger. The sports second largest event of the year was held on Saturday, March 1st.

Mattingly entered the Physique contest, along with more than 100 other entrants.

Judges base decisions on muscularity and body condition of the contestants, looking for fit contestants who display proper shape and symmetry combined with muscularity and overall condition. This is not a bodybuilding contest so extreme muscularity is marked down. Contestants are also judged on stage presence and personality.

Mattingly currently calls Ottumwa, IA home. He is studying accounting at Buena Vista University.
