CROSSOVERS

Rule for events where one competitor could win two pro cards due to competing in multiple divisions.  (NPC Masters Nationals and IFBB North American Championships)

When an event that is a pro qualifier, such as the NPC MASTERS NATIONALS and the IFBB NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIPS, has the possibility of the same competitor winning two Divisions, and also two pro cards, the pro card that is awarded last in the Schedule of Events will be awarded to the second-highest placing in the Overall judging of the last judged Division.

For example, at the NPC MASTERS NATIONALS, if a competitor wins the Overall of the Mens Over 50 Division he is awarded an IFBB pro card. If the same competitor wins the Overall of the Mens Over 40 Division, the pro card in the Mens Over 40 Division, which is judged after the Mens Over 50 Division, will go to the second highest placing competitor in the Overall judging of the Mens Over 40 Division
