Earlier this year I said that I thought that Kevin Levrone might be making a comeback. I was hoping that he would compete at the first ever Levrone Pro Classic in Poland. I was wrong. Then at the IFBB Pittsburgh Pro Show, Kevin shocked the world to announce that at 52 years old, he will be coming out of retirement and competing at the 2016 Mr. Olympia.

How?

The IFBB can give special exemptions to bodybuilders who didn’t qualify for the Mr. Olympia. The last I can remember was Gunter Schlierkamp in 2002. This means that Kevin can focus on growing into the 2016 Mr. Olympia (something he is famous for) and not having to contest prep multiple times.

Why?

Kevin doesn’t need to compete, he wants to. Kevin also has a supplement company that will benefit from his exposure.

Can he win?

I’m not a hater, but I don’t think Kevin will win. It wouldn’t surprise me if he finished in the top 10. I’d be shocked and super happy if he finished in the top 5. There are a few good things going for Kevin. Kevin has taken years off from the normal “regiment”. Kevin didn’t need to take a lot of drugs and famous for taking months at a time off between shows. His genetics will allow him to grow into the contest. Last reports said he was 250 pounds!

Funny Kevin Story?

Kevin is known to be a little different when it comes to training and dieting. One of his secrets was to drink vodka mixed with coffee the night before contest to dry out. Before the 1997 Russian Grand Prix, Kevin had Ronnie try the concoction and Ronnie actually beat Kevin the next day!

 

 

How well do you think he will do? Can he win?

  1. He will not win, perhaps he can make it to position 6 at the most considering the present state of conditioning that pros have.

    But who cares a shit about his placing .. He is BACK with a Boom…. what more we fans need. He is beyond success and failure. he is a legend that is Kevin.. That is all!!!

    Kevin – you are a hero man. You rock!!!!!
