Olympia promoter Robin Chang’s misleading facts in recent ar

The Truth: Olympia promoter Robin Chang’s misleading facts in recent article.

The man behind the Olympia Weekend Robin Chang answered a few questions on the website of Muscle & Fitness regarding the Olympia and other issues.

Robin Chang is the producer of the Olympia Fitness & Performance Weekend, the International Director of the IFBB Professional League, and the VP of events for AMI.

It must be noted that the article was originally posted in Flexonline.com, but now is redirected to Muscle & Fitness‘ official website since Flex magazine has been shut down in the USA and turned into a small insert in Muscle & Fitness’ magazine.

As well one must note that Flexonline.com and any other AMI related website cannot be viewed by 90% of Europe for some reason. This has been a problem for a number of months.

In this latest article that was published, Robin Chang answers a number of questions regarding the Olympia and other issues related to the industry.

If you follow the sport from one side of the fence, the facts that Robin presents seem ok, but when a person follows the sport from both sides of the fence you see a entirely different side to the story.

Since the split or one can say the suspension of the IFBB Pro League by the IFBB (International Federation of Bodybuilding & Fitness), there has been a number of false accusations, mostly coming from a number of figures from the IFBB Pro League.

As usual when these people speak, it is a mortal sin for a number of websites to answer back with their own opinion, especially in the USA since they are scared of the hard hand that will refuse them press passes to a number of main events such as the Olympia. Evolutionofbodybuilding.net will always reveal the truth and we are happy to challenge some of the statements of Robin in his recent article.

Below are Robin Chang’s answers to various questions and our answer to them as well:

Is the Mr. Olympia rigged?

Robin Chang: It’s not. We have a system in place to ensure fair judging. Here’s how it works: The Olympia is judged by a panel of 13 judges—11 judges and two alternates. As a rule, the three highest and lowest scores are dropped. So let’s say three judges score William Bonac in first, three others score him as fifth, and the rest give him second place. The first- and fifth-place rankings would get dropped, then the remaining scores are added. As for why Phil Heath keeps winning? He’s that good! Trust me, from a business standpoint, having different winners helps sell tickets. So there are no “politics” keeping him in first.

Evolutionofbodybuilding.net (EOB): We agree with Robin here, but he does reveal that they are trying everything to get a decent challenger against Phil Heath. The Promo is recent years has been lacking, in the past we would see posters with Ronnie Coleman and Jay Cutler head to head, but this seems to have stopped.

Why don’t people like Phil Heath?

Robin Chang: If you don’t know Phil, he can come off as cocky and arrogant. But I’ve also noticed a trend where the fans turn on multiyear champs, like Ronnie [Coleman] and Jay [Cutler]. I think people get tired of seeing the same person win. From a fan’s perspective, I get it—it gets boring!

EOB: Yes, fans do get bored of the same winner year after year, but again it is the job of the promoter to stir things up. For the 2018 Olympia, they invented the Fans Voting for the ‘People’s Champ’, another sign of disrespect for the winner of the event. If Phil Heath wins his eighth Olympia that should be enough to earn the right to be the ‘People’s Champion’. It seems everything is being done to take the focus away from Phil Heath. Even more now since he has cut ties with AMI, proving this by being interviewed by Ron Harris on Muscular Development. As well, you can notice that the photo that is attached with Robin Chang’s article has Big Ramy in the middle and not Phil Heath, does this mean something? We are on record saying that automatic qualification for the Olympia should be removed. All athletes should start from scratch to qualify for the next year. It makes the sport more exciting and everybody is on the same playing field.
