I just wanted to know....
It seems so meager to keep it 212 showdown
It sounds like a gunfight or wrestling event
The 212 Mr. Olympia sounds sooo much better
And an overall pose down with the open winner to decide the overall Mr. Olympia
Like Franco and Arnold did.....
as it should be, don't you think ?
Didn't they compete by height classes when Arnold was competing?
Sadly enough, the "Olympia 212 Showdown" remains the Active Title for this event.
I think it's a joke and should have the Mr. Olympia title added to it.
If they call the MPD thing 'The Men's Physique Mr. Olympia' next year (yes, it is going to be in the O in 2013) and still don't call the 212 show Olympia, we should all boycott!

Nope, Dorian Yates(6X Mr. Olympia) says that the title is only good enough for one man. He says if a short guy is really good enough, he should battle in the open class.
I think it should be the 212 Olympia, but I don't think the overall winners should posedown. The 212 winner would struggle to make top ten in the open, why compare him to the Mr. O? If the top 212 guys want to get compared to phil, kai, wolf, branch, evan, etc., they should qualify and compete in the open.
Today I will do what you will not, so that tomorrow I can do what you cannot.
I'm serious about this.
I stopped thinking much about any "official " policy of the IFBB or NPC.
I like bodybuilding and enjoy things when I only focus on the bodybuilding.
They can have a dancing llama division at the Olympia if they want LOL
I saw a star, reached for it...and MISSED
what is the difference in your opinion then between open pro and weight class amateur contests ?.....if that's the case why do we even have classes in the lower ranks(the amateurs) if they don't get a chance in the upper ranks of bodybuilding (the pro's) to have a shot at the title ?.....The lower weight men should be able to challenge the heavier winner to a pose down....they usually don't win but it's not about the win it's about respect and a fair shake...David Henry or Flex Lewis aren't midgets.....they are professional bodybuilders that deserve to be in a posedown....Sometimes the bigger man doesn't win and we trivialize and disrespect them buy saying it's a showdown and no overall pose down ?.....so disrespectful
