WATCH: 2018 Mr. Olympia Preview and Predictions.
The 2018 Olympia has finally arrived and it will be taking place this weekend (13-16 September, 2018).
This will be the 54th edition of the Mr. Olympia. The big question is if reigning champion Phil Heath will win his eighth straight Olympia title or will we see a new winner.
Only 13 athletes have had the privilege to lift the Sandow trophy in 54 years.

Phil Heath and Big Ramy can be seen as the modern day ‘Shadow’ as they practically have not revealed anything throughout the 2018 season.
Phil Heath had a guest posing routine, but other than that, these two giants have left the bodybuilding world guessing and speculating on how they looked.
We believe the battle for the title will be between Phil Heath and Big Ramy. If Phil is at his normal best, he will be difficult to defeat, but in all these years we still have not seen the best version of Big Ramy. Big Ramy can be very dangerous and cause big problems to Phil and everybody else on the Olympia stage.
The star of 2017, William Bonac, posted some photos of him self during his prep for the 2018 Olympia. It definitely looks as Bonac will also be a threat and will surely be a top three finisher.
Shawn Rhoden has been a bit more relaxed during his prep for the 2018 Mr. Olympia compared to previous years. He has called out Phil Heath on a number of occasions and even pointed out what he believes are his weak points.
Dexter Jackson is another competitor that can’t be overlooked. Dexter will always be a threat to the title. Even though Dexter has already won the Olympia title in 2008, he is still hungry for his second. Dexter not only is battling the best athletes in the world, but in reality he is also battling father time.
