Arnold Classic Brazil Results

If you read my latest post, here is what I predicted for my top 10:

My Predictions

10. Jose Luis Rodriguez Oyola
9. Marius Dohne
8. Toney Freeman
7. Brandon Curry
6. Fred Smalls
5. Lionel Beyeke
4. Victor Martinez
3. Juan Morel
2. Cedric McMillian
1. Mamdouh “Big Ramy” Elssbiay


The Official Top 10 (My Comments in Parenthesis)

10. Marius Dohne (Last year looked solid in contests, this year looks rough)
9. Jose Luis Rodriguez Oyola (Needs a lot more size, and conditioning)
8. Lionel Beyeke (Mr. Disappointment, He could have/should have won last year, looked soft)
7. Fred Smalls (Fred looked really good, but the top 6 was too talented)
5/6. Toney Freeman (Some mass confusion in the 5th and 6th places. Judges award to Curry, but Toney had a better score. Math error. Not sure who finished higher, Toney looked amazing for 48 years old)
5/6. Brandon Curry (Brandon looked good. He could have easily been 5,6,7… needs to be more crisp)
4. Victor Martinez (Victor looked great, lineup was too tough)
3. Juan Morel (Juan looked amazing and push Cedric. Has size and shape)
2. Cedric McMillian  (Cedric looked his best ever. Due to his long arms and legs, he does need more size, although others would argue with me)
1. Mamdough “Big Ramy” Elssbiay (Estimated 315 pounds!!! Big Ramy looked his best… ever. 35+ inch quads, better conditioning, back is improving. George Farah needs to dial him in tighter though if he is going to make top 5 at the Olympia!)


Overall: I think that the Arnold Classic Brazil was probably the best conditioning in the top 7 of any contest this year.  Juan Morel proved that he deserved his NYC win, Cedric showed he can get in shape, and Big Ramy showed he is still the freak of the IFBB.

Bonus Snippet: I think Ramy will finish in the top 4 this year of the Olympia.
