Brandon Curry Vs. Roelly Winklaar – With the 2019 Mr. Olympia just around the corner, it appears that the two front runners are Brandon Curry and Roelly Winklaar.
The 2019 Mr. Olympia competition is fast approaching. And the closer we get to the show, we keep getting updates through social media about the condition of the top contenders. After his convincing win at the 2019 Arnold Classic, most people thought that Brandon Curry had the best chance to beat reigning 2018 Mr. Olympia Shawn Rhoden. Once is was announced that Shawn Rhoden was banned from competing because of a first degree rape charge, all eyes quickly shifted to Brandon Curry.
Before Brandon Curry Vs. Roelly Winklaar really gained steamed most people felt that Brandon Curry had the best chance to beat Shawn Rhoden, especially since it was announced the Phil Heath was going to skip the show and concentrate on going for his eighth Olympia crown in 2020. Then Phil started making social media posts implying that he might be competing after all. However, the progress posts of Brandon Curry still made most people believe that he was the front runner to win the 2019 Mr. Olympia competition. Then we started to get updates from Roelly Winklaar’s camp.
When we first got a glimpse of Roelly Winklaar at six weeks out from the 2019 Mr. Olympia contest, the entire bodybuilding world let out a collective gasp. We have never seen a bodybuilder look like a comic book superhero before. Roelly Winklaar looked unreal in his progress posts. Immediately, it went from can anyone beat Brandon Curry, to can anyone beat Roelly Winklaar.
You might remember that earlier in the year, Brandon Curry won the 2019 Arnold Classic. You might also remember that he beat Roelly Winklaar at the Arnold Classic. It is no secret that when Roelly competed at the Arnold Classic, he was not in the best condition. That was one of the reasons that Brandon easily walked away with the tittle.
However, like most things in life, things have quickly changed. Now, it appears that Roelly Winklaar has been using the disappointing placing at the 2019 Arnold Classic as motivation to get things right for the 2019 Mr. Olympia competition. If Roelly Winklaar can come in to the Mr. Olympia competition in shape, and at his current size, there doesn’t appear to be a bodybuilder on the planet that can beat him. While Brandon Curry is looking huge, Roelly Winklaar is looking superhuman. Heck, maybe Roelly Winklaar can begin a career as a new Marvel Superhero after the Mr. Olympia competition. He certainly looks like one.
