For anyone that doesn't know yet, it's pronounced Roo-lee. Everyone needs to know how to pronounce his name because we're going to be hearing it more frequently. This guy has an army of fans and he's been a pro for less than a year.
I'll admit that I picked Roelly Winklaar to finish last at this year's Arnold Classic. The new kid on the block always finishes last at that show. When I walked into the pump-up room at the Arnold, however, I saw Roelly. Wow! I knew one thing for sure. He wasn't getting last place. He looked nothing like the photos I saw online when he won the Arnold amateur the year before in 2009. He had made tremendous improvements.
After placing seventh at the Arnold this spring, Roelly flew to Australia and picked up a third-place finish, which qualified him for this year's Mr. Olympia. But Roelly wasn't done yet. He entered and won the New York Pro against seasoned pros like Hidetada Yamagishi, Toney Freeman and Dennis Wolf. That's not too bad for your third pro show and no one knew who he was about a year ago.
Roelly will walk out onto the Olympia stage sporting the best triceps in the sport this side of Phil Heath. (Oh, that's another hot topic of discussion on the boards; who has better tri's, Phil or Roelly?) Roelly has made progress each show he has entered. He'll be even better at the Olympia. If anyone messes up their prep, Roelly's going to step right in and take their place. No questions asked!
