Looks to me like Mentzer is winning from the back.  Arnold had no back detail or hamstring definition at that contest.  Also in the Abs and Thighs shot Mentzer is clearly showing better conditioning and proportional symmetry.  I read somewhere that arnold got food poisoning right before that contest - he looks it!

Arnold owns nothing, and he knew it. You can see clearly in this pic that Arnold didn't DARE to look in the eyes of Mentzer.

By the way, this topic is just plain stupid. EVERYBODY in the bodybuilding world who were actually THERE all claim Mentzer should have won and Arnold shouldn't be 1st, nor should he be 8th but even BEHIND Tom Platz. And now all of a sudden all of you assclowns who maybe weren't even born at the time try to fool everybody by showing a couple of pics which indeed prove that Arnold was the "tall" man that night and making stupid statements why he dwarfed everybody and all that BS. Let me tell you something, taller and bigger doesn't necessarily mean "better". When are you assclowns going to understand that. It's because of you dumb people that bodybuilding is what it is today. The only thing you care about is ridiculous size and clowns like this guy right here in the second pic:

Nah, just another stupid excuse by Arnold to get away with the whole thing. I've seen a clip, which was posted on bodybuildingdungeon.com. This clip was made right before he entered the 1980 Mr. Olympia. It's a stupid commercial where he is comparing alcohol to amino acids or something like that. Shamelessly he drinks the alcohol and acts like the alcohol gives him a good pump just like an amino acid. He's drinking Jack Daniels if I'm not mistaking. In that clip he looks exactly the same as in the contest.

I just found the link by the way; http://www.putfile.com/media.php?n=Arnold-Jim-Beam

thats from the movie "Total rebuild- way to the olympia"... and he drinks that right before he is about to go on stage just to calm him down, the whole thing is a joke when he says its its a special blend of amino acids and protein, and its Jim bean that he is drinking

   Frank Zane once said that Arnold only took like 6 weeks to prepare for that show. The only reason why Arnold won that year is because he was still Joe Weider's golden-boy.

Arnold owns nothing, and he knew it. You can see clearly in this pic that Arnold didn't DARE to look in the eyes of Mentzer.


He didn't look into Metzners eyes, not because he was afraid, but because it would make Mike even more angry by doing so.
Arnold was a master at playing mind games. From the breakfast scene in Pumping Iron where he just slams Louie and Louie lost the contest right there, to the backstage pump room where he just won't take his eyes off Louie to psych him out. Arnold knew how to get under peoples skin in order to piss them off, make them lose concentration or just plain irratate them.
If Arnold was afraid of Metzner, how come he's sitting there so relaxed? Just calmly waving his hand, but yet he's totally afraid that Metzner may pounce any moment? Yeah right.  Roll Eyes

Sly I noticed on the pic you posted you call it "me".  Are you in that pic somewhere.  Also, Arnold was relaxed when talking to Mike because he knew Weider was right there to take the bullet.
