Showdown between Phil Heath and Kai Green

The showdown between Kai Green and Phil Heath was built up from all social media and publication outlets. Fans and athletes knew it would come down to Green and Heath in the top two positions. However; when judged it was Heath, then Green; in that order.

His coach George Farah phosted on Facebook that,

“We did our best and we came short. Kai is officially the people's champ. For you that were at the arena I am sure you heard the crowd reaction. Proud of my boy and I know that his dream will be realized sooner then later.”

There was also a lot of excitement over Jay Cutler’s return. However, Cutler did not make it in the top five; which disappointed fans and supporters.

Nicole Wilkins wins 2013 Figure Olympia

Nicole Wilkins made the decision to sit out of the 2013 Ms. Figure International. She made the decision to legnthen her off season to make improvements for the 2013 Olympia. Wilkin's longer off season gave her time to fine tune her physique, and to become the four-time Figure Olympia winner.

For the past five years, the Monday after Thanksgiving always marks the first day of my prep for the Arnold Classic. But not this year - because, since 2008, I've decided to sit out the event. For the first time since I've been a pro, I'm going to give myself a longer offseason to make the improvements I feel are necessary to get my physique where I want it to be to hopefully win back the Figure Olympia title.
