Phil Heath will compete in the 2010 Arnold Classic
November 15, 2009
Phil Heath is going to Columbus, announcing in a text message today that he will compete in the 2010 Arnold Classic. The message read:
Heath has been quiet in recent months, since placing fifth at the 2009 Olympia. A stomach virus hit Heath hard 24 hours before the Friday prejudging and caused him to come in to the Olympia's first day roughly 10 pounds lighter than he had planned. The fifth-place finish hit Heath hard, so hard that he went back to work immediately at Gold's Flamingo in Las Vegas, training legs the morning after the Saturday night finals.
When pressed for further comment, the usually talkative Heath declined to talk about the past, or much more about the future.
"Not much more to say," Heath said. "I'll do my talking when I step on stage in Columbus."
