Did Steven Cao deserve a better placing?
Bodybuilding can be a subjective endeavor. Some individuals will judge a competitors physique based on their own criteria and biases, despite the fact that they should be adhering to a very specific guideline. Nevertheless, there are some judges that can turn things completely on its head.
With his most recent showing in China, Men’s Physique pro Steven Cao saw him take a particularly low placing which left fans scratching their heads.
Always a top flight competitor, the young Steven Cao is always prepared and is looking to have solid potential as a contender for the top spot in the Men’s Physique division. At the 2018 Arnold Classic Cao took sixth place against some of the best athletes in his division. But it seems as if he missed a step at his most recent showing at the 8th Sanya International Bodybuilding and Fitness Bikini Contest.
Steven Cao was placed seventh, but from his presentation it appears that he deserved a much better placing. Take a look at his performance and sound off in the comments on what you think of his physique.

5th show this year is complete & I ended up placing 7th. Not quite the placing I wanted. First time in my competing career where I didn’t make the first call out. Not really sure what went wrong. I did my best and showed up. I was happy with the package I came in with but it’s up to the judges to decide the placings. Moving forward, Arnold Classic 2019 will be the next stop. Thank you all for the continuous support it truly means a lot to me, I appreciate you all.
