I've seen a number of predictions for the 2009 Olympia that place Dexter, Jay, Kai, and Victor as low as fourth or fifth place. These four guys share a few things in common: they have all won the Arnold, placed as high as second in the O (except for Kai, who is making his debut), and have not been beaten by Phil Heath (again, except Kai, at the '08 Arnold). Many predictions show Phil winning or at least placing in the top three.
So, my question is - if all five show up at their best (Dexter - '08 Mr. 0, Jay - '06 Mr. O, Kai - '09 Arnold, Victor - '07 Mr. O, Phil - '08 Mr. O), plus whatever improvements they have made since then, will Phil have improved enough to overtake these guys? Or will he place lower than last year with Kai and Victor added to the mix?
IMO - Phil is more than capable of winning the whole show, but will have a difficulty standing next to guys who are bigger but just as complete.
