Ronnie Coleman has come out of retirement, so to speak, to win the 2009 Megalympia contest.
It wasn't easy for the Big Nasty.
He had to fend off such greats as Lee Haney and Sergio Oliva.
In the final round he came up against Numero Uno himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Arnold gained votes for being ahead of his time and not having all the "goodies" today's pros have, but was also said to have weak legs.
Coleman was praised for his mass, glutes, massive legs, Mr Olympia wins etc., but was said to have no calves, gh bloated gut and having access to all the modern "goodies".
A lot of people thought Arnold had the more pleasing body and such factors as what he had done for bodybuilding, personality etc. also played a role, but it looks like in the end, "Lightweight Baby" Coleman will be declared the ultimate winner.
Congrats to both of them. It was a very interesting, fun and entertaining contest, with many favorites doing very well and some falling out in the early rounds.
The people have spoken.
Proudly wear your crown as the real People's Champion, Mr Coleman!
