    But this is not the best for fans who want to see the best at Arnold and Olympia.
    Last I looked it's PRO bodybuilding.

    If the promoters couldn't make a profit, they'd have Ramy ringing a bell by a collection bucket in front of the venue.

    The sign would say ' Help a freak pose down "

    positives and negatives with everything . i stayed at planet hollywood earlier this year . parking can be a nightmare .also it seems like you gotta walk a mile to get to your room . on the plus side you are already on the strip , and the theatre does look alot better of course. im just concerned with my seat being lousy.

    Maybe?

    Griff is correct that basic issues like production costs are the likely reasons for the Dec date.
    Plus, with the recent Omicron break out came a bunch of renewed travel restrictions.
    Getting the longest lead time away from that, gives the best chance of NOT dealing with those problems.

    Bottom line is the DEC contest date had more to do with $$ and travel issues, then anything else.

    This year the show was in October, it is to be hoped that next year covid will not be a major than this year.

    The change to December does not appear to be related to the pandemic.

    So athletes had 8 months to prepare from 2020 to 2021, and now they will have 14 months from 2021 to 2022. It doesn't make sense.

    Ya know, it's tough to compete if a travel restrictions prevent you from getting there.

    The 2022 Dec date gives a full year between Olympias .

    One thing that will change is - no post-Olympia shows where athletes can pick up an early qualification for the next year. All those shows in Romania, Spain, Italy, etc will have to happen in the fall and early winter now.

    Would James Bond fall off? I think NOT

    If you makes you feel better, I'll be there to break your fall.
    I'm a fat gas bag, so I can double as an effective air bag.

    BUT, you need to arrive at Planet Hollywood via helicopter ,hanging off a rope ladder.

    He'd scuba dive being pulled by a damn nuclear sub...undetected.

    Ok, if you do need to fly, at least parachute over Vegas and land on the roof of Planet Hollywood.
    Finnnnne. Jeez.

    King Kamli retired from pro BB and became the new Shamu whale act at Orlando Seaworld.
    They considered having him doing a guest routine at this last Olympia in Orlando.
    But, it got canceled when they realized he'd splash everyone doing his signature belly flop.
