Will Phil Heath continue his monster run at the Mr. Olympia 2016 and inch his way closer to the stellar eight wins of Ronnie Coleman and Lee Haney? Or will Heath’s efforts be undermined by an upset by any of the Olympia 2016 bodybuilding competitors? This includes Big Ramy, Dennis Wolf, Dexter Jackson, Shawn Rhoden, and even Kevin Levrone, who is making a comeback at the age of 51.
“These and other questions will be answered at the 2016 Olympia which will be held from September 15 to 18 at the Orleans Arena and Las Vegas Convention Center.”
While the bodybuilding competition remains the top draw for the Olympia, fans can expect to watch and participate in a wide variety of events which showcase the ability of humans to reach and extend the potential of their bodies.
