How the Coronavirus Shaped the Arnold Classic 2020

Arnold Classic 2020 was shaped by the coronavirus.

When people look back at the Arnold Classic 2020 there’s no doubt that a few separate subjects will be on their minds. Of course people will think about William Bonac once again picking up a big win at the show, Mamdouh ‘Big Ramy’ Elssbiay making his long awaited return, and Dexter Jackson pushing back the clock with an impressive second place showing.

People will also remember the cancellation of the Arnold Sports Festival Expo.

For many people looking back on the 2020 show there’s no doubt that the coronavirus will play a starring role in their minds. The Arnold Classic 2020 was completely shaped by the coronavirus in fact. Not only was the pandemic responsible for the cancellation of the expo, it also ensured that fans wouldn’t be able to enjoy the show to the fullest.

Truly the sickness was a major black-eye for the proceedings, completely leaving a sour taste in the mouth of many fans who looked forward to enjoying the Arnold Sports Festival expo. What’s really interesting to contemplate is whether or not the Arnold Sports Festival Australia will be a sequel to the events of what happened in Ohio.

As it stands no news has been revealed as to whether or not the Arnold Sports Festival Australia will be effected by the coronavirus. No cancellations have been issued despite the concerns of many.

So how exactly will you remember the Arnold Classic 2020? Will it be about the competitive performances or will the coronavirus mar the memory of the event?
