A new professional contest, the Jan Tana Classic , was introduced in The contest was named for its promoter, a marketer of tanning products, and ran annually until with the departure of Wayne Demilia it was later briefly revived in The inaugural event was won by Sue Gafner. The Jan Tana filled the void left by the Women's Pro World contest, and occupied the number three slot on the pro circuit throughout its lifetime. Olympia contest was the first to be televised live. Lenda Murray faced a serious challenge from the runner-up, Bev Francis.
Francis had started bodybuilding in the mids, converting over from powerlifting. Over the years, she had gradually refined her physique to be more in line with judging standards.
However, she came to the contest noticeably larger than in previous years. Francis was leading going into the night show, with Murray needing all of the first place votes to retain her title.
Murray managed to do just that, winning a somewhat controversial decision by one point. In , there was more controversy, this time at the Ms. In response to the increased size displayed by Murray and Francis at the previous Ms. Olympia, along with increasing drug abuse and androgenic side effects, the IFBB made an attempt to "feminize" the sport. The IFBB, led by Ben Weider , had created a series of "femininity" rules; one line in the judging rules said that competitors should not be "too big.
The contest winner was Germany's Anja Schreiner , a blue-eyed blonde with a symmetrical physique who weighed pounds at 5'7". The announcement of her victory met with so much booing from those who prefer size over aesthetics that Arnold Schwarzenegger had to step on stage to address the audience, saying "the hell with the judges".
Many observers felt that the IFBB had instructed the judges to select the most marketable aesthetic physique, not the most muscular. International is also famous for an incident involving British competitor Paula Bircumshaw.
Bircumshaw was the same height as Schreiner and possessed a similar level of symmetry and definition, but carried significantly more muscle, weighing in at pounds. She was the clear audience favorite, but was relegated to eighth place. Normally, the top ten contestants are called out at the end of the show when the winners are announced, but the judges only called back the top six, hoping to keep Bircumshaw back stage. This resulted in an uproar from the crowd. With the audience chanting her name, Bircumshaw returned to the stage along with the top six competitors.
Olympia featured Schreiner prominently, relegating two-time defending champion Murray to a small "also competing" notice. Nevertheless, Murray also apparently met the "femininity" requirements, and managed to retain her title; Schreiner finished sixth, and promptly retired from competition. Following the debacles, the judging rules were rewritten. The new rules retained provisions for aesthetics, but allowed the contests to be judged as physique contests.
Lenda Murray continued to dominate the sport from to , matching Cory Everson's record of six consecutive Ms. Murray's closest rival was probably Laura Creavalle , who won the Ms. International title three times, and twice was runner-up to Murray at the Olympia.

There are two other categories of competition that are closely related to bodybuilding, and are frequently held as part of the same event. Fitness competition has a swimsuit round, and a round that is judged on the performance of a routine including aerobics , dance, or gymnastics.
Figure competition is a newer format, which combines female bodybuilding and gymnastics altogether, is judged solely on symmetry and muscle tone, with much less emphasis on muscle size than in bodybuilding. In a competition, each woman poses in a bikini.
She must strike different poses, while facing forward, to the side, and to the rear. During her poses, she must emphasize her arms, shoulders, chest, stomach, buttocks, and legs by flexing them. The judges carefully observe, evaluate, then numerically grade the firmness and shapeliness of the woman's physique.
