When it comes to Dominance/Prominence in his Era, it would be hard for @philheath to be more so than he already has been. He's won a dozen shows so far including his first 2 pro shows and the last 6 Mr. Olympia contests. As a reigning Mr. Olympia he won 2 Sheru Classics and the 2013 Arnold Classic Europe. He's competed in 9 consecutive Olympias and his placings in the 3 he did not win were 3rd, 5th and 2nd in 2008, 2009 and 2010 respectively. The only way to be more dominant is to just keep on dominating, and from the looks of the physique he and his trainer of nearly a dozen years @hanyrambod brought to the stage in 2016 Phil shows no signs of slowing down.
Speaking of his 2016 physique, that's it pictured above...in a picture that was on the front of the New York Times. Not sure when the last time an active Mr. Olympia had a multiple page article written about him in the Times was before that...but probably something like NEVER. And I don't think it's any kind of coincidence that the Olympia will be making its way back to network television during the reign of Phil Heath. During the post 2016 Olympia Sunday Seminar, Phil spoke of being human and using certain things to motivate him to push himself...just like the rest of us. For that show he had that giant poster of @thedorianyates which hangs in @armbrustprogym where he trains to look at every day as he trained to become a 6X Mr. Olympia like Dorian before him. For 2017, he has the goal of matching Arnold's 7 Olympia wins. What could be more motivating than knowing that his title defense will be broadcast to the world thanks to @therock, @danygarciaco and the rest of the folks at @sevenbucksprod teaming up with AMI and the IFBB?!?!
I think we are all about to see something very, very special.
