A play-by-play thread for the press conference at the O, http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?t=127774013
props to Lionheart for this!
some important lines from the member who's doing this from Vegas:
"Next out Branch who also thanks all fans. He says he doesn't care what people says about his placing or what he should do. He have all support from his wife and fans and that is all that matters. "
"Next is Kai. It takes long time to get the answers out of him. He says he don't think he can see Jay stand on his head so leave that to him. He hopes for a great show. "
"Dexter says he has been fueled by his losses - last year at the Olympia and this year at the Arnold. We are about to see the largest, by far, Dexter ever to step on stage
Heath - He was hurt by his Arnold loss, today he is a stronger person, which has made him embrace the journey and come back hungry. He is ready to win "
"Marcus Haley and Vic Martinez both came back from bad knee injuries. Marcus called bob out by mentioning that he didnt predict him in the top 15, he said he is going to serve him some humble pie. He peeled of to show a very tight and full physique - this is the best we have seen him. His prep with George Farah is obvously a great team "
"Freeman voiced that everyone should be compared to everyone, not just the top 6 compared to eachother. Steve Weinberg shouted "make sure you are in shape, and you will be compared. "
"Ed Nunn, in his first Olympia, hopes to win every show he competes in but is realistic. He wants a top 10 placing and working with Hany Rambod, he believes its a sure bet.
Wolf - he says he is no longer working with "Gurus". His team work with other gurus has been a disaster. He says he is back and looking good to go on Friday night but doesnt care about placing "
"Dennis James said he has a lot of fun as a pro in the last 11 year. This, being his 10th Mr. Olympia, is his last Mr. Olympia and be at his all time best. He said he is officially the oldest competetor but has never told anyone his age. He said he will miss it but will show everyone that age is just a number - this will be a great Dennis James and next year he will take Bobs job as host. Dennis recieved a standing ovation on a great career"
