    Cedric got a special invite since he is still serving in the military and could not make all the qualifiers.
    I keep seeing stuff for a big ramy and Kai invites... but right now I don't see it .
    and they would need to know now to be ready...

    This is why the show here is so big.. Already started booking the show this month. If you click on IFBB Pro League you'll see what they got paid last year.. I think you were a little low, I'll take one hundred thirty grand, and it will be more this year, I've heard the figure ......……..AM

    My bad X...I looked at it as, were bodybuildings headed! I guess what I'm saying is the number of events nearly doubled in the last 7 years, from 46 to its current 80 as the festival continue reaching beyond its bodybuilding roots. It's growing out of control, just keep adding new events and things to do. Eighty sports or events being held throughout the four day festival brings in over 200,000 visitors and 22,000 athletes from around the world. The strongman and strongwoman has really takin over. Thats wall to wall.. Plus the high school weight-lifting:bench press and dead-lift competitions for boys and girls across weight groups. The fitness expo, which is run by (Kathy) bobs sister, Jim Lorimer kids, has over 1000 booths with equipment, clothes and nutritional supplements. The main bodybuilding competition is still huge, look at the prices.. While there isn't any set criteria, organizers prefer sports that have federations or associations, since those governing bodies establish rules and provide more fairness across competitions. Europe's a mess.. I've done the shows here in some capacity since Mr O was here. Its just huge now. I think you would have a great time here, and if you got here a week before, I could hook you up to help Rogue unload their 8 semi's of weights and platforms.LOL..……..AM

    Re: Olympia Contestants

    oh I agree AC usa is out of control. ac Europe next year might be more interested since the prague pro is canceled..( sad that was a big show)
    my weightlifting days may be over ... the back surgery I had last year may have been to late to allow the "dropped foot" to heal. it may be permanent.
    I got more PT coming , and there is still hope. unloading 8 semi's sounds a bit out of my range these days..

    This list is who has qualified, not who is competing. They are still trying to get Hadi in the USA for the 212, I don't believe Ramy should get a special invite, he did not compete at all this year and came in 6th last year, he should sit out. Cedric was only a point or two away from qualifying so he makes sense.

    Re: Olympia Contestants

    I agree, the qualify series was created to create a fair competition of the best. reward those who work hard as well as come in great condition.
    While Ramy is one of the biggest, and when in shape is awesome and a site to be seen... it should not be a give me unless he was top 5 the year before or there is circumstances beyond control.
    Hopefully Iherb will not be streaming it this year, or if the do sponsor it , go with the a professional like youtube ( which they caved to for the finals last year)
    Funny Ramy seem to mirror that performance , sucked in the prejudging and did better at the final
