These guys should remember that the MM is one of the "Mandatory" poses, which measn a VERY significant part of on'e score comes from that pose (as they do all of the mandatories). Phil "KILLS"...yes, kills Kai in this pose. In the final posedown, when Kai did his crab most muscular, his delts looked very small...VERY small relative to Phil's. Phil's were blasting out from all angles. Kai's arms also looked SMALL next to Phil's in that hsirt...yes, small.
Basically, in the final posedown, Kai looked like he lost fullness throughout entire upper-body, whereas Phil (to quote Shawn ray) "Looked like his arms were going to explode"...and not just his arms, but his entire body just looked like it was freaking expoding with freaky, fibrous muscle. It was really a sight to see.I have watched every Olympia since 1991 and I have NEVER seen anyone look quite like Phil heath did at that final posdown.
It was VERY close between these two guys at the pre-judging, but at the final posewdown, Phil really did takle Kai out, especially from the front, in terms up his upper-torso. From the back, I still had Phil as the better BB'r, but it was much closer from the back. Phil's front-torso won him this Olympia. Just look at these guys standing side by side in the final posedown video from the front. Phil was a complete freak...just awesome. No one should be complaining that Phil won this...and if anyone didn't not watch the final posedown where they were directly compared, they really should. It will calm down a lot of people.
