Helle's back!

Helle Nielsen is making a comeback! The gorgeous Danish pro, who last competed in 2003, plans to do the pro show at the FIBO expo in Germany on April 16. “I couldn’t resist with a show this close to Denmark,” she says.

Helle exploded onto the scene in 2003 when she won the Jan Tana on her pro debut when she was just 27 years-old and placed fifth in the heavyweights at the Ms. Olympia later that year. That turned out to be her last show but she has continued to train hard and heavy and is in great shape (as you can see from the pic above, which is from a shoot she did over the holidays).

Eight years after her last show, she's still only in her mid-thirties, which is exactly when female bodybuilders hit their peak. Helle says the break has definitely benefited her and her body has matured since we last saw her onstage. "A lot happens between 27 and 35", she says. "I just have a different flow." At 5-foot-5, she says she has added size, especially to her back, and expects to compete at around 165 (compared to 152 in 2003). She will also be at the Arnold next month to check out the competition.
