    ^^^ the year isn't over. What if this happens in Finland:

    1.) Rockel
    2.) Roelly
    3.) Abbaspour
    4.) Smalls

    If that happens, and it actually has a decent chance of happening, then points standings look like this:

    1.) Toney - 11
    2.) Pakulski - 10
    3.) Smalls - 8
    4.) Roelly - 8
    5.) Abbaspour - 8

    6.) Hide - 7

    Under the rules Hide would NOT qualify. But I'm sure Robin Chang will break the rules and let him come anyway.

    Both Toney & Hide are already qualified to compete in the Mr Olympia this year and will do so.

    And a well deserved qualification it is. Hide was way more impressive in person than in pictures. I had the honor of standing next to him on stage in Tampa. Great physique and very nice guy to boot. Good luck Hide!!
    And same goes for Toney. I got to talk with Toney quite a bit on and off stage. He treated me with nothing but respect even though I was the new guy. I wish him well at the O!

    I understand it was announced at Dallas and I am sure Robin Chang will make an exception if he is indeed 6th on the points after Finland, but I am just trying to find out how they can say that Hide qualified via points when the year wasn't over and he could conceivably not place in the top five in points?

    I don't know, maybe someone made a mistake thinking he couldn't be caught on points and they prematurely announced he had qualified.
