Is Phil Heath going to be back to compete this year?

Phil Heath On The Qualified 2020 Olympic Competitors.

This year was a year full of disappointments and sad news in general. With the current disease, and all events have been delayed early, any highly regarded news may be approved by most of them.

Recently, the updated list of the 10 competitors that are qualified for Olympia 2020 was published on the official website with making some changes that have been made since the last update. One, in particular, whats makes this thing exciting is that 7x Mr. Olympia Phil Heath is still on the competitors on the list with 9 other athletes.

We didn't see Phil competing the last year after losing to Shawn Rhoden in 2018 which makes us asking if he will return or this is the end. If Phil comeback this year and wins the Mr. Olympia title then he will get the most number of wins ever with eight wins with Ronnie Coleman and Lee Haney.

It's not a sure thing right now though there is a good chance if he will come back again on the stage. After Mr. Olympia last year, Heath said that if the marketing of his brand was right, Surely he will think about competing this year. However, with the current disease and his other efforts, well, that's a lot of pressure on him. But we will see his final decision soon.

But in the current moment, there are some travel limitations, which can make some athletes may not be able to compete. But Olympia is still scheduled, so we can say that things can be right.

The Qualified 2020 Olympic Competitors

  • Brandon Curry (USA)
  • William Bonac (Netherlands)
  • Hadi Choopan (Iran)
  • Dexter Jackson (USA)
  • Roelly Winklaar (Curacao)
  • Phil Heath (USA)
  • Cedric McMillan (USA)
  • Nathan DeAsha (UK)
  • Juan Morel (USA)
  • James Lewis (USA)

We can't say that William Bonac, Hadi Choopan, and Roelly Winklaar are qualified and they will compete officially because they don’t live in the U.S.

Brandon Curry wins the Olympia before in the first place William Bonac while Choopan finished third. Winklaar didn't get a good place,  his best shape was in 2018 when he gets the third place after Heath when Shawn win it. It wouldn't be exciting if we will not see them this year because of the current situation. 

We don't forget that Flex Lewis Is Preparing To Back In The 2020 Mr. Olympia Open Division, so we will see him competing with these qualified athletes after winning several times in the 212 division

The 2020 Mr. Olympia of this year scheduled in the las vegas strip the middle of December and it will be located on planet Hollywood so the competitors can prepare themself more and we hope for the best despite such a tough situation.
