|My 2016 Olympia Predictions!!
My 2016 Olympia Predictions.
Here are my predictions for the 2016 Mr. Olympia and the 212 Showdown. See our Muscle News section. It is based on who is qualified, and what I know as to which qualified athletes will be competing. It is unfortunate that Dennis Wolf is out this year with his injury and Kai Greene is not entering.
Plus my thoughts on Kevin Levrone's comeback and our high hopes for Josh Lenartowicz. See my photo of Kevin taken at the 2001 English GP which he won. GMV-445DVD on Download.
That was 15 years ago and at this contest I never saw Kevin look better.
The photo of Josh is by Jason Breeze taken at the 2016 Arnold Classic USA, GMV-930BRDVD.
