Samuel Slides Into Winner'S Slot At Ironman Pro

Posted in: Gossip, Articles by ProSource, Andrew Oye's Pro Muscle Report
By Andrew Oye | Jan 26, 2009

The Item: Contest Results

The Scoop: Just announced: Over the weekend, rain wet the streets of L.A., but it didn't dampen Silvio Samuel's path to a first place finish at the 2009 Ironman Pro Invitational. By day, the Los Angeles Convention Center played host to the L.A. Fitness Expo, which teemed with fans seeking product samples, fitness info and events (like powerlifting, seminars, and game show castings). At night, the venue was the site of a special appearance by 6-time Ms. Olympia Cory Everson and a not-so-brutal Muscle Stage battle.

USA's Samuel bounced back from his 4th place finish at this same event in 2008 to claim a seemingly "easy" victory. While 2nd place finisher New Zealand's Moe El Moussawi out-massed the champ, Samuel, brought his usual well-balanced combo of SCAM (Symmetry, Conditioning, Aesthetics and Mass) including a tight V-taper and glute striations. Super-sharp conditioning, or the lack thereof, seemed to be a factor for rest of the field, including 3rd place finisher Germany's Ronny Rockel, who needed tightening from the rear view. In his first stage appearance since last year's personal troubles, Japan's Hidetada Yamagishi used symmetry to take 4th place and a Mr. O. qualification. Ahmad "Abzilla" Haider rocked his impressive washboard midsection to finish 5th.

The "So What?": 2009's event marked the 20th Anniversary of the Ironman Pro contest and the pro debut of Lebanon's Mohammad Bannout, cousin to notable IFBB Pro Samir Bannout. The only other competitor to truly nail his conditioning, Bannout finished in 7th place. Andrew Oye's verdict: Here's hoping the overall impression of the first pro show of the year doesn't necessarily set the tone for the rest of 2009.
