Competitive bodybuilding is an extreme sport where the athletes push their bodies to the absolute limit to create the best shape possible for the show.
Because competing is so hard on bodybuilders, it can mentally and physically drain them. However, bodybuilding has also been called dangerous due to the extremes athletes use to flush water out of their system to appear more ripped on stage.
An interesting clip from a bodybuilding show in Iran has surfaced online where a competitor goes ballistic on the judges.
Without context, you can only speculate what happened, but from what we have seen, there is a good reason the competitor freaked out on the judges.
The judges messed up his number, announcing him the winner a few times before taking it all back.
That’s the reason for this bodybuilder’s meltdown, and he is mad that he was announced the winner, and then it was all taken away from him.
Greg Doucette had more information about the situation and explained why he believed the bodybuilder was so angry.
Here’s what Greg said in his video:
So when the judges announced him into first place he was thinking, yes I got it, all those weeks and months of hard dieting, all the sacrifices I made it’s all worth it. He is standing on stage and this is perhaps the greatest moment of his life, we don’t know, we don’t know how bad he wanted this victory. Perhaps this was his last show, perhaps his last chance we don’t know. Was he on route to get an IFBB pro card? Before we judge him we have to understand how important this may or may not have been to his career, life, family and so on. And to simply dismiss it and say “roid rage, look at this guy he is freaking out, look at him he is on roids, he didn’t even work hard to get that physique, it’s all roids” To me that’s going to far.
We don’t know for sure if it is true or not, but in his mind he is being shafted perhaps political reasons, we don’t know imagine this perhaps he pissed of the wrong person, the head judge, the owner of the show and he is in the contest and said “I got this, I got this in the bag, I am going to win this for sure” and then he hears his name in first place: “Hey competitior number whatever you’re in first place” only to then say “oh you are not in the top 3 anymore, you can go off stage, bye”
Allegedly the man was announced as the winner three times before it was decided suddenly that it was a mistake.
That’s the reason for this freakout; watch the video below:
