    Olympia 1992?!

    There seems to be always a big debate whether Kevin Levrone should've been 1992 Mr. Olympia.

    So I'm posting to links with Levrone's and Yates' posing.

    You decide who you think should have been the champion that year!

    Kevin Levrone:

    Dorian Yates:

    Enjoy,

    LNM

    Other than back lat spread Levrone had him in every shot. Not to mention he was dryer. No idea how Levrone didnt win that show.

    He was so much dryer!

    Levrone looked extra ordinary.

    I too, just by looking at these 2 videos, thought levrone had the win.

    Btw, is that you in the avvy?

    I could name plenty of years that the other guy should have won the O but it doesn't work like that in the IFBB

    exactly, legs far from a galaxy.
    He was also much dryer , and look at his shoulder, perfect proportion.
    only the back was not so wider , but yates was reputed for his back too ....

    Yates back didnt really blow up til a few years later. Watch the 1992 one above then look at him here just 5 years later.

    Yeah, he must have tweaked his "diet" between 92-97.

    Dorian was at his best in 1993. This was before he tore his biceps and quad, and also before his gut began expanding. He was still a beast later on in his bodybuilding career, but in 1993, Dorian was untouchable.

    Dorian looks like an amateur compared to Kevin in 1992.

    I was 241 two months ago, sitting at 228 right now (5'10). Heavyweight is between 196-225.

    ^^ I think those may have been the ones Flex Magazine printed when he was 8 weeks out that year. He definately raised the bar quite a bit.
