What They’re Saying

Six-time Mr. Olympia Dorian Yates is excited for the return of the annual event:

World champion bodybuilder and Mr. Olympia hopeful Steve Kuclo took to Twitter to send an inspirational message before the big event:

Four-time Mr. Olympia Jay Cutler echoed the claims from a fan that he will be looking to win his fifth overall title:

 

Predictions

Mr. Olympia Winner: Phil Heath, USA

American star Phil Heath is the two-time defending champion and will be looking to defend his crown, but the stiff competition of this year’s field will make that incredibly difficult.

Contending against a legend like Jay Cutler won’t be easy, and the inclusion of former champion Dexter Jackson (as well as talented stars like Kai Greene, Shawn Rhoden, Mamdouh Elssbiay and Cedric McMillan) makes this one of the most competitive fields in the competition’s history.

With his physique as great as it has ever been and Heath looking to continue his long reign of dominance, bodybuilding fans should expect another victory from the American sensation.

 

Ms. Olympia Winner: Iris Kyle, USA

The 2013 favorite to win the Ms. Olympia competition will be American star Iris Kyle.

Kyle has seven titles in a row and eight championships in the last nine years—there are many around the sport of bodybuilding that think she is the greatest Ms. Olympia of all time.

The veteran will have some serious competition this year, though.

The impressive field includes stars of the sport like Debi Laszewski, Maria Rita Bello and Cathy LeFrancois, and will prove to be one of the toughest in the event’s long history. If Kyle wins yet another Ms. Olympia, she will have earned it against the best in the world.
