Arnold had an injured shoulder and couldnt train hard for Mr O 1980, hence his poor condition/ining Huh

Still doesnt explain how Mentzer and/or Platz got shafted and overlooked. They both should have placed ahead of Arnie, and its debatable who should've won.

He only won due to his name. Cant place the great A.S. 3rd or lower.

Don't know who why dave czech write post about olympia arnold 1980?

Doesn't make sense, does it? That's what I thought about your post. Use good grammar and I could probably answer your question.  Smiley

I spoke to Michael Walczak, M.D, shortly after the 1980 Olympia. He was at my gym in Connecticut giving a seminar.

The drug doctor for many of the pros at the time, he did not allow that Arnold should have one ( and he was definitely partial to Arnold) but he also stated that many of the other pros were not at their best.

In my opinion, Zane (despite a very bad injury to his urethra several weeks prior to the show), Coe, Mentzer, Tinnerino and even Roger Walker could have annexed the top spot. Roy Callender came onn strong.

Platz looked great in 1981. In 1980 he and Samir were actually quite smooth. Check out the photos, they are quite telling.

Could never understand Dickerson winning in 1982, or placing ahead of Zane ever.

Wow, how do you injure your urethra Huh. Anyhoo, the top three at that show were clearly Mentzer, Arnold & Dickerson. Mentzer running 5th is still the biggest catastrophe in bodybuilding history, even more so than Sergio losing in Essen.

Arnold was at 70% and still good enough to beat the competition. Notice Mentzer's tiny chest!

I remember reading something by Mentzer which he wrote that while backstage at the 1980 Mr. Olympia, seeing Arnold in his trunks backstage gave him a tremendous boost in confidence. He thought at that moment "Not only am I going to win the Olympia, but I'm also going to beat Arnold Schwarzenegger!"

Just to be clear Schwarzenegger was right there with the other top guys and looked good but also had a lot of help from Weider politics. If you want to pretend that wasn't a factor, i'd like to introduce you to Santa. Wink

1972 and 1980 are both highly debatable whether the Oak should have won.

i don't think it's debatable if you're judging a bbing contest as opposed to an ass licking contest.

arnold had weak legs and a lack of thickness, density, symmetry and proportion.

in short, he was off.

You better go look at the photos... The Myth was more conditioned than he was in 72... Who ever heard of an O winning because he had 1 better bodypart... Calves? Roll Eyes

Arnold won in 1980 because he was the best. In 1972 if you see the vid it is clear it was close but Arnold was more cut and had better shape.

I remember a quote from Joe Weider on this topic. He said the other bodybuilders should be glad Arnold won in 1980 because if he had lost his ego would force him to come back better than ever and win it 5  more times.

Maybe, but then they would have been AMAZING wins... not just gimmes... When Arnold won, I mean won, hands down... was the best, I've never seen anyone better (Well, I'm a fan of The Myth, but I digress)... but there were times when he wasn't the best, but he won anyway.

Best conditioning there was Dickerson.

Platz was ripped off.

Zane was great, but past prime, and it showed...

Now in '81... thats when Platz and Padilla really got ripped off. No politics Roll Eyes
