Career Updates, Special Appearances, Legends Update, Andrew Oye's IFBB Pro Athletes Roundup
Recently Reported: IFBB Pro League athletes had career updates or made recent guest appearances at various sports, bodybuilding, physique and fitness events. The latest "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report" Pro Athletes Roundup includes a trio of Olympians, a young contender and a veteran competitor.
The "So What?":
Over the weekend, Florida got hit with a storm -- a barrage of Olympia Sandow trophy-carrying pro bodybuilders. 2008 Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Dexter Jackson hosted the NPC Dexter Jackson Classic in conjunction with the IFBB
Jacksonville Pro Bodybuilding Championships. Jackson also took the guest-posing stage at his event and brought along a few buddies who know the bodybuilding stage well -- veteran competitor IFBB Pro Troy Alves (who won the Europa Show of Champions earlier this year), IFBB Pro Phil Heath (last year's 3rd place Olympia runner-up), 2-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Jay Cutler, and legendary MUSCLE INK Magazine cover athlete, IFBB Hall of Fame 8-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Ronnie Coleman.
Andrew Oye's Verdict:
There's something to be said about the cool level camaraderie among high-level IFBB League athletes in this situation. With the exception of recently retired Ronnie Coleman, the rest of the aforementioned athletes (along with IFBB Pro Branch Warren, IFBB Pro Dennis Wolf and others) are preparing to tear each other up at the "Super Bowl of bodybuilding" -- Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend -- in Las Vegas next month. Yet, they took the time to support the event of the current "target" with the title he defeated them to claim around this time a year ago -- after also snagging the victory at the Arnold Sports Festival's IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships.
