Iris Kyle is out of the 2020 Olympia.
The Ms. Olympia Women’s Bodybuilding champion was set to make her return to action at this Year’s show. She even was present at the first day Meet the Olympians Press Conference.
The ten-time Olympia champion was hoping to compete and earn her eleventh victory at the show, but appears that her plans have been derailed.
Per Olympia officials, it appears that Iris Kyle will no longer be competing at this weekend’s show. According to reports, the ten-time champion has apparently fallen ill. Details are still scarce and it’s currently uncertain if the illness is the same one that has ravaged the globe in 2020.

Like Roelly Winklaar before her, Iris Kyle must sit on the sidelines and hope to make a full recovery. This is certainly upsetting news for the fans and for Ms. Kyle herself as well. She was once again hoping to prove her dominance in the Women’s Bodybuilding division. Sitting out this show means that she’ll have to wait for several months before stepping onto the Olympia stage once again.
What do you make of Iris Kyle being out of the 2020 Olympia due to illness?
