September 24-25, 2010 at Las Vegas, Nevada (Orleans Arena)

Jay Cutler, with his muscularity, beat an incredible conditioned Phil Heath.

Here is the prize money for this contest. Prize Money - 1st - $200K, 2nd - $100K, 3rd - $75K, 4th - $50K, 5th - $40K, 6th - $30K, 7th - $18K, 8th - $17K, 9th - $16K, 10th - $14K.

2009 Mr. Olympia Results
September 25-26, 2009 at Las Vegas, Nevada (Orleans Arena)

Whoever was in doubt that the great Jay Cutler could ever come back from losing an Olympia crown, and there were a lot of doubters, was in awe as Jay took the title back. Dexter Jackson, last years winner, lost by ONE point to take third place over a vastly improved Branch Warren. Kai Greene, the winner of the 2009 Arnold, took 4th, while Phil Heath took 5th, again by ONE point. One of the most highly anticipated matchups in the history of the sport.

1998 Mr. Olympia Results
October 10, 1998 at New York, New York

This year, a new Mr. Olympia was crowned, due to Dorian withdrawing from the contest three months ago, and the excitement over who would it be was quite incredible. Madison Square Garden theater was sold out, with over 5,600 fans screaming and yelling for their favorite. Dorian Yates was in the house, officially announcing his retirement, which saddened many who wanted to see him compete one last time in 1999.

With favorites 1998 Arnold Champion Flex Wheeler, 1997 Mr. Olympia runner up Nasser El Sonbaty, and 1998 Night of Champions & Toronto Pro winner Ronnie Coleman all competing for the Sandow, everyone knew it was going to be an awesome contest. Top that with Kevin Levrone (who has won 19 IFBB victories), and Shawn Ray (who was 3rd last year, and competing in his 10th Mr. O), and for the first time in years, no one knew who was going to be in top shape on Oct 10th.

But the winner this evening was Ronnie Coleman, an Arlington Texas police officer, who barely beat Flex Wheeler for the title. Both of these gentlemen had awesome backs, which was probably the main reason that Nasser El Sonbaty was in 3rd, although Nasser was definitely the crowd favorite of the night. Nasser was clearly the biggest, weighing in at 275lbs.

During the second round, Paul Dillett suffered from severe hydration, and went to a hospital to be checked out. He was ruled ok, but did not return for the evening show. After the second round, Flex Wheeler was in first place, Ronnie Coleman 2nd, Nasser El Sonbaty 3rd; Shawn Ray 4th; and Kevin Levrone 5th.

How things can change. Ronnie Coleman overtook Flex in the 4th round, and won by three points! It was an incredibly close contest; one that will be remembered quite fondly. The results were:

1997 Mr. Olympia Results
September 20, 1997 at Long Beach, California

This year, for only the second time in its history, the Mr. O contest involved a two day format, prejudging Friday night; finals Saturday night. Last time this happened was 1989. On Saturday evening, Wayne DeMilia annonced Paul Dillet as being in 4th place, Lee Priest as being in 5th place, and Kevin Levrone as being in 6th place. That was the unofficial standing until Sunday morning, when it was revealed that he had made a mistake. The actual official results is:

1996 Mr. Olympia Results
September 21, 1996 at Chicago, Illinois

Dorian was incredible as always. However, Nasser looked awesome and massive, with his back much better than last year. Many people thought Nasser should of been crowned #1. However, the biggest surprise of the night was Shawn Ray's second place finish, over Nasser! Shawn looked incredible! Honestly, the top five place finishers all looked great, and almost everyone said that this was the best Mr. Olympia ever. Judging by how close the results were, I must say that next year Yates will be dethroned as champion. Only later on did we know that Nassar failed the duiretics drug test, and was disqualified (he was in 3rd place that evening). The results were:

1981 Mr. Olympia Standings

This was an extremely close finish with five different judges voting for a different person to be #1. It was another year of the comebacks, which some people thought the contest was staged from the start. The judges were Dominic Certo (USA), Doug Evans (Wales), Winston Roberts (Canada), Franco Fassi (Italy), Jim Manion (USA), Jacques Blommaert (Belgium), and Sven-Ole Thorsen (Denmark).

1980 Mr. Olympia Standings

Held in the thrilling spectacle of the Sydney Opera House in Australia on Saturday, October 4th. Prejudgin was at 2pm. Bill Pearl was the IFBB Head Judge. It was held on the same weekend as the famous Muhammad Ali - Larry Holmes title fight in Las Vegas, which Ali lost. Arnold entered the contest in the last 24 hours, to the surprise of many, who wondered why would he want to try and destroy his perfect record. After the Olympia, Frank Zane asked Arnold why he came back to compete, and Arnold said "To get back at Mike Menzter and Boyer Coe. To show them they can't get away with knocking me and my training". Arnold wanted to show them that you could go into the Olympia on a very positive note without criticizing others, and win.

Before the contest, an ultimatum, in the form of a petition, signed by all of the competitors, except Arnold, read 'The following Mr. Olympia competitors are in favor of abolishing the two weight classes, and replacing them with one open class." The message in the petition was implicit: one class or no contest! However, Arnold would not budge, and the meeting between the bodybuilders and the judges got quite ugly, almost violent as 15 bodybuilders turned against Arnold. Finally, Joe Weider got involved, talked to Arnold, and Arnold withdrew his objection. The Mr. Olympia event became a one class contest again.

The judges for this contests were Reg Park, Mits Kawashima, Albert Busek, Dan Howard, Brendan Ryan, Jacques Blommaert and Mike Walczak. Before the contest, no one complained about the judges. Afterwards, well.... lets just say this was one of the most controversial Olympias ever. Arnold was not in his best shape, and the 15 other competitors knew it. Even Arnold realized he was only in 90% shape.

When the top five were called out, things started to get bad. Mike Menzter in 5th place. The judges had to be joking. Mike was in the prime of his bodybuilding career, better than last years Olympia. Mike would say later "So ludicrous was the decision that, really; all I could do was laugh. I will tell you, somebody out there really wanted me crushed out completely". Boyer's reaction was a little different. "Is there no justice" Boyer demanded to know as he sent chairs flying into walls. Frank Zane accepted his trophy with a calmer demeanor, yet later shattered his trophy into hundreds of pieces by hurling it to the asphalt of the opera house parking lot. Dickerson accepted second place with a sharp "Oh no", and vanished into the night.

And Arnold. Arnold was booth by over 40% of the 2000 fans in the opera house. All 15 competitors are unanimous in their beleif that slecting Arnold was a bad decision on the part of the judges. Even the CBS Sports crew were shocked, expecting Mike Mentzer as the champion. Even Bill Peark (who did not vote), said he would never have picked Arnold.
