Dennis James shares his thoughts on Hadi Choopan’s first ever Olympia showing.
Hadi Choopan’s journey this year was an incredible one indeed. After suddenly deciding to compete in the Men’s Open at the Vancouver Pro 2019 (and winning!), many fans saw a physique that was in their minds incredible and a true threat to the top Olympia competitors. Unfortunately, as it has been for the past few years – it was expected that Choopan would not compete due to Visa issues.
This all changed just two weeks before the Olympia when Hany Rmabod and Hadi Choopan announced that he had finally received a US visa and will be able to compete in the Olympia for the very first time. Not only that, but he would be sticking with the Men’s Open division.
And then on top of all this rollercoaster news – Hadi Choopan ended up placing third in his first ever Mr. Olympia. It’s an incredible story only marred slightly by the athletes who were NOT there – such as Phil Heath, Shawn Rhoden, and Big Ramy. So all things considered – beyond the incredible story – how did Hadi perform at the Olympia 2019? Dennis James has released a video breaking down his thoughts on the Persian Wolf’s physique and posing routine. You can check it out compiled by Fazi Fitness in the video above!
