The passing of the torch.

In 2018, we are all more than used to Phil Heath as the reigning champion. He is the new king overlooking all other bodybuilders who work hard tooth and nail to dethrone and replace him as Olympia champion.

But there was once a time where Phil Heath was one of the people reaching up for the trophy and Jay Cutler was the king. The moment that the torch passes to a new champion is always an exciting one – that’s why we are flashing back with this video to the 2011 Mr. Olympia competition. The then current champ Jay Cutler faces off against the soon to be champ Phil Heath. A defining moment in the history of bodybuilding. Watch it above.
