It's going to be these two guys fighting for the IRONMAN 2008. Who do you think has the edge to take the trophy home?

Judging by the pics (heath is like 5 weeks out there? and baddel is 2 days out?) i'd have to say Heath looks thicker and just all around better. Nothing against baddel he looks great but if Heath nails condition he owns this show no problem...i see Baddel placing 2-3rd

I won't flame ya, but i do think you are overlooking a few of gus' flaws. His chests isn't very thick at all, and its somewhat asymmetrical. Traditionally gus has a bad waist line during comps, but he does look better this go around. But i can't see gus beating phil. Phil has one hell of a genetic structure.

Phil looks good but gustavo looks real good too. If it was based off of those pics gustavo would win because of better conditioning. we will see tomorrow!

ok what do u expect, gus is gonna be smaller since his whole aim was to bring his waist down so obviously everything is gonna come down a little in size....where as phil heath's whole goal was to increase his size, so i think theres gonna be some size diffs.

different light, different angle, and different times. That being said, I think phil will win but not by much at all.

I feel that we shouldn't make any kind of judgement just yet pertaining to who is goning to win until we aee the pics from the pre-judging tommorow, also with regards to Phil while he does look absolutley phenomenal we still have yet to see the final product on stage and at this level of competion who knows what will happen between now and pre-judging both men can spill over or fade out and lose thier conditioning and place low (although I highly doubt it). So until tommorow we should wait before we make a judgment call.
