Since we first announced the inaugural 202 Showdown at the 2008 Olympia Weekend, we've had a barrage of emails and questions concerning the contest. Yesterday, all the details were finalized. First and foremost, athletes can qualify by placing in the top five of the three previous 202-pound shows, at the New York Pro, the Pro Bodybuilding Weekly Championships on August 9 or the Europa Super Show on August 15-16. The Olympia committee will also give special consideration to inviting athletes who have competed in one of the previous 202-pound contests. Second, athletes who qualify for the Mr. Olympia competition will be allowed to compete in the 202 Showdown on Saturday afternoon. In addition, competitors may be invited by Special Request. The field will be limited to 15 competitors.
