Football has it. Baseball has it. Why the hell not bodybuilding?

This year, for the first time ever, you can make your picks for the Olympia Weekend winners (and losers) and get a shot at some great prizes in the process! It’s the inaugural “Muscle Fantasy League,” sponsored by VyoTech Nutritionals.

Sign-up is easy for this free contest, and then you can start researching –the site has bios and odds for all the competitors in all four events. You’ll earn points by choosing the following:

• 1st-5th, 7th, 10th and 14th place finisher in the Mr. Olympia.
• Who will be in the Mr. O Challenge Round and how many wins each of them will rack up.
• The top six Ms. O, Fitness O and Figure O finishers, plus the winners of each round of the contests.
• As a tiebreaker, you’ll choose where Russian rookie Alexander Fedorov will finish.

When all is said and done, one grand prize winner will win a JVC 42-inch plasma HDTV. Other winners will get Mr. Olympia merchandise, DVDs, or subscriptions to Flex and Muscle & Fitness.

To play, just go to and click on the “MFL” button near the bottom of the page, or go directly to If you think you know bodybuilding inside and out –hey, maybe you’ve even posted your picks and amateur punditry all over the online bulletin boards –now it’s time to put up or shut up!
