Dorian Yates returns to the stage
One of the biggest stories to ever come out of competitive bodybuilding has just been announced.
Dorian Yates has decided to come out of retirement and compete in next years IFBB British Grand Prix. When asked about the bold move, the 48 year old who went into retirement 14 years ago had this to say:
"After winning my 6th Olympia title, and suffering a number of bad injuries it seemed the right time to call it a day, but after seeing all of the new guys competing at the GP [British Grand Prix] and my injuries now repaired, I had the urge to stand on stage one last time in my home country. I'm older so it will be hard work but I've never been short of willpower."
Yates has been busy setting up his latest venture, DY Nutrition, which makes this news even more surprising.
When asked how he had time, his reponse was:
"There's always enough time to train properly, just a case of will power and being menetally tough. I'm not the sort of guy who makes excuses and lets things get in the way. I'm very busy with Dorian Yates Nutrition but I've got the will to get back on that stage."
It's surely going to be a tough ask for Dorian to be competitive even though he has a year to get in shape but if anyone can do it, it's him. Looks like the 2012 British Grand Prix will be a show to remember.
