So all Bodybuilding fans know the Olympia is coming this September! September 26-29th to be exact.This is the Superbowl of the bodybuilding world. Since the competitions start in 1965 (much like the superbowl) there has only been 13 different champions. This is the biggest competition in the sport and the winner will have his name carved in bodybuilding history! This years roster is very exciting and I believe the title of Mr Olympia could be grabbed by anyone. 2013′s Olympia competition is stacked with former Mr Olympia champions attempting to regain the title and, Arnold Classic Champions trying for a first Olympia title. Olympia 2013 has close to 40 people qualified to compete. I believe these 6 competitors have the best chance of winning the title of 2013 MR Olympia.
Phil Heath is the 2x reigning Mr Olympia. There is a reason this guy is the reigning champ. Phil is huge and cut! His nick name is the Gift due to unbelievable genetics. At 5 foot 9 inches and weighing 250 pounds during competition look for the “Gift” to Bring it on Olympia day!
Jay Cutler is a Former 4x Mr Olympia. He is the only bodybuilder in history to loose the title and regain it. Jay Cutler did not compete last year due to a torn bicep. 2013 marks another comeback year for Jay as he tries to regain the title again becoming a 5 x Mr Olympia Champion. At 40 years old Cutler is 5 foot 9 inches tall and weighs 274 pounds come contest time.
Kai Greene is known as the people champ. Kai is seen all over the internet encouraging people to” chase their dreams! what ever they may be!” He has yet to win the Olympia title. The former 2x Arnold Classic Champion came 2nd last year to Phil Heath in what was an epic show down. Kai is one of the most determined people on this planet and I really expect him to give both Phil and Jay a run for their money! Kai Greene is 5 foot 8 inches tall and enters competition at roughly 250 pounds!
Shawn Rhoden is probably the biggest surprise from last years Mr Olympia competition, making his Olympia debut placing 3rd! Shawn has great size and his muscle definition is remarkable. Shawn really looks carved from stone! Shawn has recently teamed up with former 8x Mr Olympia Ronnie Coleman signature series so I expect big things! At 5foot 10 inches Shawn enters competition at a cut 240 pounds.
Branch Warren is known for his no bullshit, lift heavy, extreme work out approach. Branch’s work ethic in the gym is insane. He is one of the most Hardcore bodybuilders I have ever seen and trains like his childhood idol former 6x MR O Dorian Yates. The 2x Arnold champ hopes to claim his first Mr Olympia title this year. At 5 foot 7 inches tall weighing in at 252 pounds Branch Warren is ready to bring it.
Mamdouh “big ramy” Elssbiay
Big Ramy is the current New York Pro Champion. He has never competed in the Mr Olympia and is coming out of no where while, making HUGE impressions in the body building world. Big Ramy has his name because he is big, real BIG. At 5 foot 9 inches tall his competition weight is 286 pounds! I expect Ramy to make some noise this year as he tries to be the only bodybuilder in history to take home the Olympia title his first competition!
