There’s been quite a few Area Orion morphs over the years that weren’t quite up to standards, or asked not to publish from the model/photographer. I call these the Area Orion Vault.
I hope to share more of these in the future. Here’s a “vaulted” female muscle morph of Sarah Backman from 2013. Looking at it now, now really sure why.
From FemaleMuscle.com. Sadly Lynn never made a trip through the AO Labs.
We have just learned of the passing of long time competitor, Lynn McCrossin. Lynn was born June 15, 1958 in Caribou, ME, a small city in the northwest corner of Maine.
Lynn began bodybuilding in the early 80’s and competed in several AAU shows, before making the switch to the NPC. A top finisher at all her shows, Lynn left the stage to pursue other avenues with her amazing physique.

Lynn was a very caring person and spent many of her years in the Mental Health Field as a substance abuse counselor, therapeutic recreational specialist, crisis intervention and also child development for emotionally disturbed children. Lynn also gave her support to others as a personal trainer and helped many to change their lives with a new outlook and a commitment to living healthy.
Though we haven’t seen much of Lynn the past few years, she will be remembered for all her contributions to others and her competitive nature and spirit. Thank you Lynn for the memories.
