Die Teilnahme von Flex Lewis beim diesjährigen Mr. Olympia wäre etwas ganz besonderes gewesen. Nach seinem letzten Wettkampf im Jahr 2018 hätte der siebfache Gewinner des 212 Olympia (Körpergewicht bis ca. 96 Kg) sein Comeback in der offenen Klasse gefeiert. Somit hätte wäre in Las Vegas auch ein Vergleich mit u.a. Phil Heath, Dexter Jackson, Brandon Curry wahrscheinlich gewesen.

Aufgrund einer Verletzung: Flex Lewis nicht beim Olympia dabei

Vor wenigen Stunden hat der in Florida lebende Waliser mitgeteilt das er NICHT am Mr. Olympia teilnehmen wird. Eine bisher nicht genannte Verletzung macht ihm die Teilnahme unmöglich. Ehefrau Ali und Coach Neil Hill haben dem Olympia-Champion ebenfalls dazu geraten die Vorbereitung abzubrechen. Details zur Verletzung soll es in einem nächsten Video geben. Wir wünschen James „Flex“ Lewis eine gute Besserung und hoffen ihn 2021 auf der Bühne zu sehen.

So making this decision with my team was not easy for me. I fought it hard, and I still struggle with it, I be lying if I said different. But I am in a good metal state and I am staying positive about all this.

Devastation – Would be one word to describe my last three weeks. Anyone who knows me, knows I work hard and suffer in silence. I am used to telling myself to “suck it up” on the hard dig deep days of prep, with the mentality of all gas no breaks. On this occasion it took my wife to step in and say something to me! This was the first time in 8yrs @alir87 has spoken up so needless to say my blinkers came on. It was only a few days later, that I was trying to fight my coach @neil_yoda_hill1 and Ali’s decision about pulling out of the Mr. Olympia. Since my first show at 19 years old, bodybuilding has been my life. In that time Neil has been with me for every single show. We have never pulled out of any show. I can tell story’s about competing with injuries, being sick, heck one show I got conjunctivitis and I was blind on stage. Pulling out? Not a thought!!! So making this decision with my team was not easy for me. I fought it hard, and I still struggle with it, I be lying if I said different. But I am in a good metal state and I am staying positive about all this. I want to wish every athlete who is to compete at this very special Mr. Olympia the very very best. This is going to be one of the most unique and craziest shows in history. What a show!!!! Good luck lads: @rafabrandaopro @roellywinklaar @philheath @brandon__curry @william_bonac @hollingshead89 @hadi_choopan @mrolympia08 @cedricmcmillan @hunterlabrada @juandieselmorel @big_ramy @iainvalliere @international_bodybuilderchul @antoinev87 @osladillukas @nathandeasha I do not want to take anything away from the @mrolympiallc show. This is a #Fuck2020 storyline for me, that can be added to many others this year! – I will be shooting a secondary video to let everyone what’s the next steps are in rehab and my journey back to the stage
