He looked good, but IMHO his name is what gave him the title that year. He should not have won.

I agree with Blake.

IMO I would have it Dickerson, Zane, Mentzer.

Not easy.

I also used to think that Arnold didn't deserve the victory, but later.....I don't know anymore.

I know size isn't everything, but look at the two pics where he is standing relaxed next to Mentzer.

My conclusion is that he wasn't as good as he was say in 1975, but still good enough to win in 1980.

That was the most controversial Olympia of all time. Arnold was the color commentator on the CBS broadcast of it and was getting in shape for a Conan movie when at the 11th hour he entered the show. Being a past Olympia winner, he was automatically qualified for life. Of course he won even though Mike Mentzer, Frank Zane and even Tom Platz looked better.

I maybe got it wrong. I thought total prizes were $500,000. I'll see if I can find it.
