Countdown to the 2013 Mr. Olympia

By September 14, 2013

Follow me on:

Las Vegas, Nevada

In exactly two weeks, the 2013 Mr. Olympia will be crowned in Las Vegas. The 49th rendition of the SuperBowl of bodybuilding features one of the deepest lineups in the history of the competition. Three former Olympia champions are among the cream of the crop bodybuilders getting ready to battle it out onstage. Those previous Mr. O winners are two-time and reigning champion Phil Heath, four-time winner and the returning Jay Cutler, and one-time winner Dexter Jackson, the only bodybuilder to ever win both the Mr. Olympia and Masters Olympia titles. A list of all the bodybuilders that have qualified for this year's Mr. O can be found here.

The weeks leading up to the Olympia are the most exciting for bodybuilding fans around the world. Speculation on who is on track to being at their all-time best for the contest is at its highest and the same goes for the bodybuilders who seem to be falling behind. This is the time when fans and media alike put out their predictions on where they think the top bodybuilders will place and who will be the last man standing. These predictions are made based upon the bodybuilder's recent contest results, along with their appearance leading up to the Mr. O.

To count down to the 2013 Mr. Olympia, you will find a three-part series right here on About with predictions of the top ten finishers. These predictions were carefully made and much thought was made into each placing. And, an explanation of why each bodybuilder will land in their respective position is provided.

You can read each part of the series by following the links below:
