This is the 50th Annual Year of the Mr Olympia contest in Las Vegas, Nevada and we are going to network and connect with other brands and people at the expo. This will be the first time in many years that DS have attended the Olympia weekend and we are excited to get out there to see what all the fuss is about. Vegas is known for it's never ending 'full of life' atmosphere and the amazing sights you can capture within a single trip. The big question however on most of our minds is who is going to take the Olympia crown, will it be 3 time winner Phil Heath or a newly crowned champion....Kai Greene?
Whilst at the expo we are going to be networking with the other brands that are there and aren't so well recognised in the UK. It goes without saying the likes of Optimum Nutrition, USN, PhD etc will be there but other brands like MHP, EHP labs, Muscletech, Shredz and so on who will be on our lists of companies to connect with. There will be tonnes of athletes, visitors and fitness enthusiasts who will generate positive energy within the convention centre across both days. Aside from the many different supplement stands that will be insight each and every corner of the centre, there will also be other things happening.
There will be wrestling, boxing, MMA, strongman competitions and more. The whole convention centre will literally be packed full of different activities to watch at your leisure.
What Else Is On
On Saturday night there will be the Olympia show which holds the eight main events that includes the main highlight, the Mr Olympia contest. Ladies, physique athletes, 212 bodybuilders and more will also compete in their respected events and it is going to be amazing to see so many hard working people on the stage.
We will try our best to network with as many athletes as possible so that we can give you more of an idea of how they prepare and live this lifestyle. The big athletes who are competing will obviously be backstage for most of the days and will rarely come out to their stands. However we will try our best to grab photos and chat with as many stars as possible to blog about on our return.
Look out for all the content we post up in relation to this awesome event, we literally have just over a week before we fly out and then it's time to enjoy ourselves. Stay tuned and if you are going we will see you there :)
