Some of the more interesting story lines that have marked the Arnold Classic's history
February 27, 2010
In an issue of FLEX from long, long ago (well, not really, it was March 2009), we ran a piece titled "Tales from Columbus." In this downloadable PDF you'll find some cool, interesting, funny and eye-opening anecdotes from past Arnold Classic competitions.
Know what? Rather than try to summarize it, we'll just provide the intro:
Once upon a time, in March 1989, in the blue-collar town of Columbus, Ohio, the first Arnold Classic Weekend was staged. Since then, much has been written about the yearly event. What you may know that Rich Gaspari won that inaugural edition, that Dexter Jackson and Jay Cutler won three, and Flex Wheeler a record four will not, for the most part, be repeated here. But, in celebration of its [then] 20-year tenure, we review some of the more interesting story lines that have marked the prestigious event's history as we take you behind-the-scenes to reveal facts and anecdotes you may not have heard.
Be warned: in these tales, not everyone lives happily every after.
