I often read comments that 1982 Mr Olympia was our worst Mr Olympia ever.

Have a look at some of his pics and let the debate begin.

A few comments first:

1) I was also surprised the first time I saw the result of the '82 O, but after watching the "video" (shows my age), I agree with the result. Second place winner, Frank Zane was off compaired to his 3 previous wins. Viator's legs weren't up to par. Beckles wasn't going to win it and Samir would only hit his peak the following year. Tom Platz was the favourite to win, but tore his bicep shortly before the comp. That left the door wide open for Dickerson to claim the victory.

2) His O win wasn't as controversial as the '72, '80, '81 and later '01, '07 etc. Olympias.

3) He had already won numerous other pro shows regularly beating the best in the sport at that time.

4) No bloated guts, one leg bigger than the other, torn bicep etc that we would see later. (although he had that elbow thing in '82.)

5) Other than his genetically "weak" biceps, one couldn't really find fault with his body. He had good shoulders, very good triceps, ripped abs, cut legs, massive calves and a very very good back. No major weaknesses.

6) He was one of the best posers ever.

7) He was second in '80 and '81 Olympia


I would like to hear your comments and NO, the fact that he was / is gay isn't or shouldn't be a reason why some guys don't like him.

It looks like Dickerson deserved the win. It was pretty much between Zane and Dickerson.

i can see why they would say he was the worst, not because the event was bad and controversial, or that he didnt deserve the win which he did.
but compared to all the other Mr Os he is the worst of the bunch.

Dickerson is gay? I didn't knew that!

Back to topic: he was great in 82 if we forget how his elbows looked.

No. It's unlikely that he would have come in the condition that Dickerson did. Columbu was at the end of his prime and even then Dickerson would have beaten him by a mile.

I think he was definitely a deserving winner and should not have his win be called controversial. In everything I have seen from the 82' Mr O I had him winning myself.

I didn't even know he is gay :e5dunno:, learn something new all the teim.
Great thread sexnews :xyxthumbs:

Look at that line up, I think it was a great Mr O. Lots of great competitors and they all looked great to me. But in those pics Dickerson stands out. I would not take anything away from him. Great poser as well.

Ok I get your point. So what you are saying is that if the Olympia winners were to compete against each other, he would have lost. Fair enough, but I actyually did the thread to honor a Mr Olympia. Anyway, one can also say that Larry Scott would have lost against Oliva, Oliva against Arnold (he did), Zane would have lost against Bannout (he did), Haney would have lost against Ronnie etc.

I just got the feeling that people were saying that he wasn't even good enough to win in '82 and showed him some disrespect. Hell, even Cutler deserves some respect as Mr Olympia even though that is a very difficult thing to do.
