Recap the 2022 MR. OLYMPIA with Dennis James and his guests, Milos Sarcev, Chris Cormier and George Farah.
At the end of the day, what happened? It is a bodybuilding contest and everyone came in prepared and there were a lot of surprises at Olympia 2022 in Las Vegas. (4:53)
Congratulations to all the athletes.
Re: 2022 Mr. Olympia, "Was everyone a little off?" (5:12)
Hadi was much bigger, but a little less conditioned for Hadi who is always next-level conditioned. It was a well-deserved win.
Ramy was in good condition, but flat?
A lot of surprises...What do you think?
Are Derek and Samson the biggest surprises of the show?! (14:35)
Hadi was leading after pre-judging by just 1 point.
Does Derek need to work on intercostals?
"Let's talk about Nick Walker..." (21:20) The hardest worker in the room.
Is Samson the biggest threat to everyone next year? 294.6lb depleted.
"Can Nick Walker win the Olympia?"..."What has to happen?" (26:40)
"Can Nick Walker beat Derek if Derek is on?"
Does Samson needs to work on his back?
Was Ramy penalized for his lats or was he just beat by Derek in the back poses? It is super thin - By slipping just one point you can drop from 1 or 2 to 6th.
4th place for Brandon Curry? Was that where he should have placed? Trying to be too big can cause you to loose conditioning.
7th place - Hunter Labrada was not the Hunter we saw last year (45:48) and the competition was better this year.
8th place - Andrew Jacked was not going to do the show 4 weeks ago, but he looked amazing. (48:15) Looked what he achieved in one year! And he was sick.
Can Big Ramy's problems be fixed? (53:00) He won the Olympia twice with the same problem. The first things judges will ask is "Did he fix the problem?" So what do the judges have to say regarding why he slipped from 1st to 5th?
"What happened to Blessing?" (1:06:45)
"What does he have to do?"
Iain Valliare? (1:13:05)
William Bonac at 9th? (1:16:10)
Milos Sarcev: "Hey I mean, the highest I ever placed was 10th at the Olympia, right, and I was delighted to come in the top ten. And now we say, oh, that's not good results. Oh look, you placed 8th. It was a great result....it just wasn't 100% on."
Rafael Brendao's first Olympia. (1:19:32) - I was super impressed and they moved him up into the top 10. Maybe just missing a little size? He needs 10-15lbs.
Michael Krizo? (1:22:00) Did he deliver? Was he holding water? "That guy is dangerous."
Chinese food before a competition? Really?! Who does that! (1:30:30)
Back to Samson... (01:34:05) he is standing next to Ramy! And holding his own. This is a blessing and Samson now is going to do the Arnold Classic in ten weeks.
