2009 IFBB Mr. Olympia Results

With the loud standing ovation, and everyone in the Orleans Arena on their feat, we all watched history being made as Jay Cutler came back from his second place finish to retake the title, and win his third Mr. Olympia!

After Parties: Flex Party and BB.com Party

Here are two more parties that we are planning to go to.  The Official Flex Bikini Model After Party, and the Bodybuilding.com / Ultimate Nutrition After Party.  Here are the flyers for the two parties.

With over 100 bikini beauties signed on to compete, the 2009 FLEX Bikini Model Search Championships – presented by Amazon.com and brought to you by Ed Hardy- will undoubtedly be bigger and better than ever. So it seemed only fitting that the Official FLEX Bikini Model Search After Party would  be the biggest and best post-Olympia bash in Sin City!

Located on the 64th floor of the ultra-swanky The Hotel at Mandalay Bay, MIX Lounge will play host to the official FLEX Bikini Model Search after party, presented by promoter extraordinaire Jason Dihr. Hundreds of models, athletes and celebrities in the bodybuilding industry are expected to turn out for this can’t-miss event! Rub elbows with the elite, and – if you’re lucky – you just may have your picture taken with one of our beautiful FLEX Bikini Models and appear in an upcoming issue of FLEX magazine!

But that’s not all! Supplement giant ALR Industries pumps the volume up another decibel by hosting their post-Olympia blowout at MIX Lounge as well.  This is without a doubt one you won’t want to miss, as the FLEX Bikini Models turn the heat up to unbearable levels at MIX Lounge in Las Vegas on Saturday night! A limited number of tickets to this exclusive event will be available. Stop by the FLEX booth at the Olympia Expo for more information.

Phil Heath Interview

Phil Heath gives an in-depth interview with Bodybuilding.com. Heath says, “I’m probably the only guy on paper right now who could be a multiple Olympia champion and possibly break the record, but with the sport growing each year with more guys, I don’t know if there’s another Phil Heath lurking around. I don’t know if another guy has figured it out who might be better than all of us.”
