The Scoop: Recently Reported: IFBB Pro League athletes had career updates or made recent guest appearances at various bodybuilding, physique and fitness events. The "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report" latest roundup includes Olympia champs and Arnold Classic champs.
The "So What?": Over the weekend, 2-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Phil Heath was the featured guest poser at the NPC Southern California Bodybuilding Championships in San Diego, CA. On the opposite coast, 4-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Jay Cutler and 2-time IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Champ IFBB Pro Kai Greene were guests at the NPC Atlantic States in New York, where Masters Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Dexter Jackson, IFBB Pro Evan Centopani, IFBB Pro Victor Martinez and IFBB Pro Juan Morel also hopped on stage. Other appearances: IFBB Arnold Classic Europe Champion IFBB Pro Shawn Rhoden at the NPC Lansing Grand Prix in Michigan. 2-time Arnold Classic Champ IFBB Pro Branch Warren (who was at the NPC Rhode Island Championships last week) at the NPC Duel of Champions in Omaha, NE, emceed by retired IFBB Pro Bob Cicherillo. IFBB Pro Hidetada Yamagishi and IFBB Pro Branden Ray at the NPC Titan Open Bodybuilding Championships in Kenosha, WI. Recent Toronto Pro and New York Pro Champ IFBB Pro Jose Raymond at the NPC Gold Classic and Eastern U.S. All Military Forces Championships in Wilmington, NC. IFBB Pro Andy Haman at the NPC Tampa Bay Classic in Florida.
Andrew Oye's Verdict: It was commendable for IFBB Pro Jay Cutler, in a recent interview, to acknowledge and not dismiss the potential threat that rookie IFBB Pro Mamdouh Elssbiay, a.k.a. "Big Ramy," (winner of the recent IFBB New York Pro Bodybuilding Championships and current talk-of-the-industry) could pose at the upcoming Olympia Weekend in September. The IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series is in full effect.
