    I doubt it will be the end. There are other shareholders who will be addressing this - they won't want the business to collapse on the back of the stupidity of a few people's decisions within the company.

    Is it just me, or does the Olympia just not seem to matter as much as it used to?

    It seems to me that the heart of Bodybuilding is on social media and smaller shows now? I can't say I've been interested since the earlier days of Jay Cutler.

    No, Not that Dr Z.  Please don't bother PM'ing me for 'Price Lists'  You have the wrong guy.

    Oh it still matters all right...even in times like now where they seem to hand out pro-cards like sweets, i'm 100% sure any pro would happily trade all their other pro wins just for 1 Sandow.

    have to agree , the most successful bodybuilders/trainers are now the ones with the biggest social media followings not the ones with the most sandows or accolades, can't think of any other sports where this would be the case .  Even some of the old pro's are jumping back into competitions , not because they think they will do well but probably to boost their social media followings .
     
    The whole thing doesn't feel right anymore 
     
    people train for a year , have there diets/training  spoon fed to them do no research , place at one show and the next thing they are a 'new age' prep guru/PT 
    online coaches/guru's 
    guru's reinventing the wheel with super foods like Jelly babies and coco pops.
    Insane overfeeding /insane over dieting protocols
    Guru's pretty much becoming salesmen selling the secret formula where you can eat what you want , do no cardio and get peeled , but unfortunately not many get in shape.
    less people have the ability to suffer .
    Over emphasis on drugs/diet and not many know how to train .
    too many pro cards ( although UKBFF was a massive bottleneck for years, so glad this has changed, but now its gone too far the other way)
    Classes being created to cater for bodybuilders who never did legs ( and now they are the more successful than the MR O.  unfortunately that's what people want to see though and this is why the big comps have become less interesting .
     
    The only positive changes I have seen that appeal to me lately are the classic bodybuilding (they look fantastic ) and the 212 class , the former being created because of judges going for unsightly mass over aesthetics. And they get less prize money than the female bikini class .

    Don't agree Phil Heath, generally not 'liked' social media stylee...Insatagram 3m followers v's Rich Piana 1.1m...The Sandow is still king....Take the 212 I bet Flex 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 would trade every one of those 212's (except the first) for an open?? as for classic (a class which I admire) but it's "classic" so where does that start and end, Frank Zane to Flex Wheeler? long live the open 👍
