The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Olympia

    who here is either going to the O or ordering it on PPV?

    i'm actually ordering it this year and i can't wait , although it's obvious about the number 1 spot i like to get pools together for the remaining top 6 placings.

    no way, there is no chance that he will, i dont think he can get big enough and cut, when he goes big he seems to carry too much fat, there are too many better BB's than tommy, ie. cormier, priest, wheeler, levrone, dj etc...
    The only limits are the one's you place on yourself...

    Well if the show even happens I'll be watching it.

    I'd have to pick Cormier for second if he dials in right but I think your going to see a close battle between him and Flex for the spot.

    I'd like to see Dexter and Priest finish in the top 5.

    This year's is kinda dissapointing that Cutler wont be there. I dont really buy the 'train for one contest a year' excuse, he thinks he was robbed last year and wont get a fair shot this year, and I think he's right.

    Jay was pretty clear about his reasoning (true or untrue) regarding not doing the Olympia. when he renewed his card, he never even put the O on it as a show that he would do, so he didn't "withdrawl" from it at all.

    he states in a few mags (i might have already posted this) that to make the amount of money that he could potentially make ALL year by doing promo's and guest posing, he would have to be guaranteed the number one spot at the O to get that same amount of money.

    ****, you do the math..........he's been bustin his hump for multiple shows killing his body, Ronnie will be back bigger than ever, and theres NO guarantee that you would make the amount of money that you could if you simply didn't do the O. makes logical sense to me. gives the guy some bread and his body a break. in addition, Ronnie won't last forever, so when Ronnie starts to fade, thats when Jay will step back up to claim top spot. its called strategy......

    They were discussing the changes in this year's olympia over at freakz a while ago.
    Originally posted by Fina44
    At the 2001 Mr. Olympia press conference, bodybuilder Shawn Ray and a few others had a few interesting comments to say about the judging at the Olympia. Shawn wanted to see a fresh panel of judges every year at the Mr. Olympia, which should be easy with the assortment of judges that the IFBB has, and also wanted accountability of the judges, which meant that he would like the see the judges' scoring made public. Wayne DeMilia, IFBB head, took care of the second item at last year's Olympia by providing the scoring to the press, and this year, Wayne has taken care of the first item, by bringing in new IFBB judges to judge the 2002 Mr. Olympia.
    There will be 12 judges judging the Mr. Olympia, with the three highest, and three lowest votes being tossed out, and one judges score not being used at all, which each round an alternate judges' score is tossed out, the judges not knowing who it will be. This ensures that the judging will be fair and accurate. Also this year, the judges are not allowed to talk to each other during the Mr. Olympia.

    Also, this year, out of the 12 judges, nine judges have never judged the Mr. Olympia, while two others have judged it before. Only one judge who was there last year will judge again this year. It appears that Shawn may have received his wish in having a new judging panel up there. This may definately shake up the lineup on those judges who have preconceived notions.

    The judges who are first time judges at the Olympia include Linda Wood-Hoyte (from New York); Eric Hillman (from North Carolina); John Tuman (from California); Ron Hashe (from Canada); ary Udit (from Pennsylvania); Axel Bower (from Austria); Benedetto Mondello (from Italy); Andre Bowers (from Australia); and Bev Francis (from Australia - New York).

    The judges have have judged before include Peter Uristick (from Slovakia, having judges the O in 1999); Ted Williamson (from California, having judges the O in 1997) and Asher Frig (from Israel, having judged the O in 2001).

    The Head Judge is Jim Manion, and the Assistant Head Judges are Jim Rockell, and Sandy Ranalli. They cannot judge, and are there to make sure everything goes smooth.

    Of course, as in the case last year, there can be replacements if something occurs. Also, the judges at the Fitness Olympia, and the Ms. Olympia will differ than these judges.

    I'm going to the Expo but not to the judging. It's to much money to see something that I already know the outcome off. Ronnie will win until Joe decides who HE wants to be the next Mr. O.
