Olympia Expo News - Lee Haney Nutrition & Gifted Nutrition

by Roger Lockridge



If you're heading out to Las Vegas this week, you might want to pay attention because we have a couple of opportunities for you to meet Mr. Olympia's past and present plus have your picture taken with the Sandow trophy.


Lee Haney Nutrition will be at Booth #1391 throughout the weekend and my understanding is the 8 Time Mr. Olympia will be there himself in Las Vegas so make sure you stop by the booth to possibly meet one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time!


Gifted Nutrition also have big plans this weekend. Over at Booth #836, you can see Gifted Nutrition athletes Janet Layug and Mr. Olympia himself, Phil Heath on Saturday! You can also have your picture taken with the 2013 Sandow Trophy that was presented to "The Gift" for his 3rd straight Olympia title throughout the weekend.  



As I get more news on the Expo, I'll pass it on here on the blog.

Cedric McMillan Out of Olympia

by Roger Lockridge


A bodybuilder that has developed a major following in recent years is Cedric McMillan. Big Cedric has been hailed as a future Mr. Olympia by past champions such as Lee Haney. Whether he has opted to step onstage for the 50th Olympia has been a hot topic as of late.



Despite rumors that he will skip the big weekend in Vegas, Cedric had NOT announced one way or another what his plans are for Sept. 18-21. After placing a call to AMI this afternoon, I can confirm that Cedric is NOT on the lineup list for the Olympia this year so he will not compete again until 2015.



Keep checking the blog for the latest updates.

by Roger Lockridge



The 2014 Olympia Weekend is of course headlined by the Mr. Olympia contest itself but the undercard isn't bad either. Matter of fact, the 212 Olympia Showdown is going to be an awesome event itself. With James "Flex" Lewis defending his title for possibly the last time before moving on to the Open Division in the future, there are several hopefuls that plan on knocking the king of the 212's off his throne. The entire competitor list is below.


James "Flex" Lewis


David Henry


Kevin English


Jose Raymond


Eduardo Correa


Sami Al Haddad


Guy Cisterino


Aaron Clark


Charles Dixon


Hidetada Yamagishi


Mark Dugdale


Raul Carrasco


Ahmad Ahmad


Baito Abbaspour


Mboya Edwards 



The 212 Showdown, like all the final events of Olympia Weekend, will be a part of the exclusive Olympia Webcast on Bodybuilding.com on Saturday, September 20. Tune in to see if anyone will take Flex down and become the new 212 World Champion or if Flex will leave the stage victorious for the 3rd time.

Olympia Coverage on NBC Sports Network

by Roger Lockridge




By now everyone in the industry has heard about the news that NBC Sports will be broadcasting the 50th Anniversary of the Mr. Olympia on NBC Sports Network. It has made the biggest event in bodybuilding even bigger. However there has been some confusion as to when and how the event will be presented.



The two day event will be broadcast LIVE exclusively via webcast on Bodybuilding.com as it has for the last several years. More information on the webcast can be seen at this link. http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/2014-exclusive-olympia-webcast-press-release.html


NBCSN will be presenting the Mr. Olympia on television for the first time since 1984 in two broadcast specials - the first on October 18th at 1:30 pm eastern time and the second on October 25th at 5:30 pm eastern time. Check with your local cable and satellite providers for more information.



There will be much more news to share about the historic weekend in Las Vegas in the coming days so check back with the blog for the latest news.

Centopani, Compton, Obaid Out of Olympia

by Roger Lockridge



Although we are less than three weeks from the Olympia, Evan Centopani, Justin Compton, and Essa Obaid have apparently decided to not compete and focus on making improvements for 2015. Compton earned his qualification spot by winning in Orlando. Essa and Evan made the show via points in the Olympia Qualification System.



Although they made their decisions at different times, word from the camps of Centopani and Compton is they have opted to throw their hats in the ring for the 2015 Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio. Both athletes are expected to be in Las Vegas but they will be representing their sponsors at the Expo instead of onstage.



As for Essa, his mother is not in good health and Essa opted to be home for her instead of preparing for the Olympia. There is currently no word on when he plans to return to the IFBB Stage. With all three competitors out, that means that there are currently 19 pros that will compete in the historic 50th Mr. Olympia!


Stay tuned to the Olympia Blog for more updates as they are available.
