By Dan Solomon

For fans of world class physiques and superhero bodies, the biggest weekend of the year is fast approaching.  On September 13-16 Las Vegas will once again host Joe Weider’s Olympia Weekend, a tradition that began back in 1965.  This year’s event marks the 20th consecutive year that Vegas will serve as the backdrop for the world’s most prestigious bodybuilding & fitness showcase.

DigitalMuscle.com will once again be on hand to cover all the action, a list of story lines that includes Phil Heath’s pursuit of a record-tying 8th Mr. Olympia title.  A victory by Heath will position him along-side legendary flexers Ronnie Coleman and Lee Haney as the greatest bodybuilder’s of all time.  Heath’s 7 titles currently has him tied with Arnold on the all-time list.  Impressive company.

More to come…  But in the mean time, check out this promo video!

Tickets & Schedule info for Olympia Weekend are now available at www.MrOlympia.com.
