I'm sure every website under the sun has now posted the 2021 Mr Olympia results and just in case you didn't know, here they are: *** Placings *** 1. Mamdouh Elssbiay (Big Ramy) ($400,000 Prize money) 2. Brandon Curry 3. Hadi Choopan 4. Hunter Labrada 5. Nick Walker In my opinion Big Ramy was not dominate and should have finished second with Brandon Curry winning. Big Ramy's abs also looked weird which the commentators picked up on. You can see from the photo above the big split between his abs which hasn't been there before. I believe Ramy tipped the scales at over 300 lbs bodyweight entering this years Olympia and quite frankly it was too much. In certain poses Brandon Curry outsized Big Ramy, especially in the arms department. The opening entrance from Brandon Curry at the start of his posing round was great. Bodybuilding contests should bring back the silhouette moments before competitors start posing. Another thing picked up by the commentators was how poor the stage design was. For example, it was difficult to see the physiques of the bodybuilders due to poor lighting and distracting lights flashing repeatedly in the background while the bodybuilders posed. This is something that has been mentioned at every Mr Olympia for god knows how many years now and it's still not fixed! The show is supposedly meant to be the ultimate, the pinnacle of a bodybuilders career but unfortunately the production value would say otherwise.
The greatest bodybuilder ever (in my opinion) turned 74 today. In his newsletter which Arnold sent out today he stated that his best Bench Press was 525 lbs! Incredible. I wonder if Arnold really did always knew he would become a HUGE star?
