From Dennis James on Facebook:
Lionel Beyeke on his way to Finland!
We just got the news that Lionel is not qualified for the 2013 Mr.Olympia, with 8 points he is tied in 6place meaning he needs 1 more point to qualify.
Our game plan has changed from just concentrating on the Olympia in 6 weeks to stick with what was working the past week and continue improving and Lionel is going for not only the needed point which means top 5 would be enough NO we are going to Finland to win the show and show the world that Lionel is a legitimate thread for every contest in the IFBB.
Lionel has sick potential, I hope he realizes it to the fullest some day.
I have mad respect for the bodybuilding dedication that Alexey has. Totally donated his life to the sport.
Here is a few competitors I know:
Notice! Robert Piotrkowicz won't compete because he torn his right tricep last week.. :(
Lesukov vs. Cutler part 2 - video:
Hopefully Alexei will do good! Huge potential right there..
All Alexey needs is to nail his condition, he has the mass and body parts to do very well, not quite sure why people seem to dislike him besides the fact that he needs to work on his conditioning. These pics were from 2011 and in the best condition ive seen him though that could be due to the high contrast of the pics; if he comes in conditioned hes a force to be reckoned with.
^ The king of all examples is Kevin English... if he can be Mr O then anyone can win anything. I was just making a prediction no oe asked for... if he wins I will be very happy for him because he is certainly paying his dues. I just wish he gets away from whichever Guru he is with and get someone like Farah, Denis or Hany! Russians have been showing potential on & off but nothing has comethough for the long run... and I blame the Gurus over their who can just do so much before ruining you all together!
