Looks like an old NOC line-up.  Half those guys won't get a callout.

Crazy amount of competitors for the Mr O this year - they should cap the number at 15 or so - most of those guys are second tier.

The ONLY LIVE Webcast of the 2011 Mr. Olympia contests!

Earlier this year, Bodybuilding.com's BODYSPACE™ community eclipsed the 1 million member mark. As a token of our gratitude for helping us become the documented LARGEST ONLINE FITNESS COMMUNITY IN THE WORLD, we are pleased to continue a tradition of bringing you the ONLY worldwide webcast production of Joe Weider's 2011 Olympia Weekend, LIVE from the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas!

Presented by MuscleTech and Bodybuilding.com, the coverage will include the featured Mr. Olympia (Pre-judging & Finals) as Jay Cutler looks for his 5th Sandow Trophy, awarded to the world's #1 bodybuilder. On the ladies side, the Ms. Olympia, Fitness Olympia, Figure Olympia, and Bikini Olympia events will all be covered, in addition to the Men's Under 202 Showdown.

Considered one of the best lineups in the contest's 46 year history, nearly ONE MILLION dollars in prize money is up for grabs at the September 16th & 17th event, including the prestigious Olympia title.

Calling the action from the booth will be bodybuilding's veteran lead commentator Dan Solomon along with highly opinionated IFBB Pro Bodybuilder King Kamali. A former Olympia Top 10 finisher, Kamali is known for his candid, no-holds-barred commentary.

Covering the women's action will be the hosting team of Carla Sanchez and Amanda Latona.

The coverage gets underway on Friday September 16th at 6:30pm Pacific Time (9:30 ET) and continues on Saturday (start times will be the same on both nights).

Be sure to check out all of Bodybuilding.com's expanded Olympia coverage at http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/2011-olympia-main-page.html

What good is this if only 10 people in the world can tune in?????   These folks never have enough bandwidth to support what they is say is available.  Its all corporate hype in my opinion.

I think last year close to 20,000 at the same time tuned in, with thousands more afterwards.  You are talking about the first webcast about 4-5 years ago, when the line went down (aka Hardbody Entertainment).  Last year, it went very well, and there should be no problems this year either.
