On the eve of Kai Greene's announcement that he's skipping the Mr. Olympia, Victor Martinez (last year's runner up) also revealed that he'll wait till the 2009 Arnold Classic to step back onstage. Martinez has been rehabbing a torn patellar tendon that occurred 6 weeks prior to the 2008 Arnold and according to him, "I just won't be ready in time to be my best."
Most industry experts speculated that it would take a miracle for Martinez to recover from such a severe injury in time to compete at this year's "Big Show"; however, despite the naysayers, Martinez almost pulled it off.
"I could do it if I really wanted to, but the results would be no different from last year. I want to show up with a better package than last year and kick some ass!".
When asked who he thought would take home the title this year, Martinez answered quickly, "If Jay shows up in shape, it's his show!"
