^^^ the year isn't over. What if this happens in Finland:
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.
Hide is not qualified yet.
Take it up with your IFBB Pro Mens Athlete Rep, Bob Cicherillo who has more details.
Hide will be onstage at the Mr. Olympia!
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 don't know, maybe someone made a mistake thinking he couldn't be caught on points and they prematurely announced he had qualified.
The point system is so stupid. Bet the same guy that thought of the Challenge Round thought of this
