The 2019 Olympia is right around the corner, so everyone wonders whether Kai Greene or other veterans will appear on the big stage this year.
Do you think former reigning champion of Olympia Phil Heath will make a sensational comeback? From his social media, we can see he is in his perfect shape, and many believe his shape is even better than before. Is he going to reclaim his crown?
It doesn’t look like that though.
Multiple sources state that Phil Heath will be officially sitting out of the 2019 Olympia. Here is Heath’s recent statement, check it out below:
“I AM THANKFUL TO FINALLY ANNOUNCE THAT I AM NOT COMPETING AT THIS YEAR’S 2019 MR. OLYMPIA CONTEST.
AS MANY PEOPLE HAVE KNOWN ME THROUGHOUT MY CAREER TO COMPETE AT THE SPORTS BIGGEST EVENT, I WILL BE SITTING THIS ONE OUT. AS I CONTINUE TO WORK ON OTHER PROJECTS, INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF BODYBUILDING.
I HAVEN’T STOPPED TRAINING, AS BODYBUILDING IS SOMETHING I EXTREMELY ENJOY DOING, BUT AT THIS POINT IN TIME, I HAVE CHOSEN TO BYPASS THIS YEAR’S EVENT.”
Should we hope to see Phil Heath competing next year? Time will show.
