The Official Dorian Yates Thread
« on: June 18, 2007, 03:20:03 AM »
Hedgehog has come up with his own rules - one thread per subject/person! So I make this THE OFFICIAL DORIAN YATES THREAD!!! Nobody is allowed to mention Dorian ANYWHERE on Getbig without having that merged to this thread!

Yep. Leroy Davis was the guy.

Apparently they're no longer friends. I used to train at Temple Gym and Leroy used to run the place as a manager during the day.

I saw him a few months back when I was on my way to work - he's working as a brickie now or at least he was last time I heard.

They are friends now. I got both of the guys together when I shot Lewis Yates and Liam Davis training together when I flew over there at Christmas time. We sat in the Starbucks down the road and it was great to hear them both talk about old times. We then went to Temple which was the first time Leroy had been there for 7 years. He said the place looked very decent compared to back then  :)

Just got off the phone from Yates today. Simon Fan has been looking after Temple. Yates hasnt been there much over the past couple of week. He says he has moved into an area of Birmingham which is way too nice for him.
He will try to come to LA the week before the Olympia where he will be on the judging panel again

just imagine if dorian never got injured and could actually train the last 8 weeks out from a show - the most important time for some.

Good Point. ALso, Dorian has still held a respectable amt of size. Look at Kevin.   Not Diss'n Keven, Great BBer.

Leroy said to me that he believes that the bodybuilding world was robbed of what Yates could've become due to his injuries. His mind was too powerfull for a mortal physique.

What is the likelihood of Yates doing a seminar in the Midwest? It seems he is always either in NY or LA..I'm sure there are tons of fans in the midwest that would love to see Doz!

Its very possible. If someone could generate a decent interest it wouldnt be a problem to get him over there.

He's very popular, Chicago or Indy or... anywhere would get a good crowd I'd bet.
