We asked, and you delivered. This past February countless M&F readers went to Muscleandfitness.com to enter The Arnold Easter Egg Hunt Contest for their chance to score the ultimate Arnold Schwarzenegger prize—the chance to meet the man himself at the event named after him. In the end, it was Mike Jensen who walked away with the grand prize—A VIP package to the 2013 Arnold Sports Festival, held in Columbus, OH last month. In addition to getting VIP access to all the events, our big winner got the opportunity to chat it up with The Austrian Oak in a special photo op. Check out the grin as he stands beside the bodybuilding icon.
As you can imagine, Mike was thrilled to have received such an incredible opportunity. Here's what he had to say about his experience.
"Being able to attend the Arnold Sports Festival was more than a free trip. For me, it was an experience that confirmed my passion for health and fitness. I was beyond inspired being surrounded by so many people who are just as passionate about the lifestyle as I am. It was a great honor and privilege meeting legends and experts in the industry. Thank you Shawn Perine and M&F Magazine for the opportunity."
Here are a few more pictures of Mike making the rounds at The Arnold Sports Festival.
