Hello :gaygay:

An early breakdown of the Mr. Olympia qualifiers

June 25, 2008

by Allan Donnelly

FLEXONLINE.COM

It's never too early to start thinking about Olympia Weekend. That's our theory anyway. With just over 14 weeks to go, and even though there are four contests remaining - the Houston Pro, the Pro Bodybuilding Weekly Championships, the Europa Super Show and the Atlantic City Pro - and potentially 12 more qualifiers, we decided to give our early take on what's in store. With 19 qualifiers already in the books and set to take the stage at the Orleans Arena on September 26-27, we decided to stay true to the host city of Las Vegas and offer our view on the on the opening line for each competitor.

WHAT: 2008 Mr. Olympia
WHERE: The Orleans Arena, Las Vegas NV
WHEN: Friday, September 26 and Saturday, September 27

Some great new blood to the Mr O this year. Should be a great show as long as it is judged fairly and correctly.
