With just three days to go, the buzz is really high for Mr. Olympia 2020. This year’s competition is said to be a memorable one thanks to an amazing line-up. Another special reason is Phil Heath‘s comeback after a gap of a year.
Yes, the gift is returning to the stage after losing the title to Shawn Rhoden in 2018. For the unversed, Phil has been the winner for 7 times and will be giving his every bit to win the title for 8th time and tie the record of bodybuilding legend, Ronnie Coleman. He’ll be competing with reigning champ Brandon Curry and there are other eye-grabbing challengers like Big Ramy, Dexter Jackson, Roelly Winklar and many more.
Despite such a big number of challengers to surpass, Phil Heath is all confident. A few days back, he shared his arm workout video and today, he has tweeted claiming of winning 8th title with Mr. Olympia 2020. He wrote, “If you felt a bit of a rumble in Orlando, Florida don’t worry it was just me arriving for the Mr Olympia where I’m going for #8 tying the all-time record this weekend.”
