Phil Heath Wins Third Consecutive Mr. Olympia

In a contest that has been described as the deepest Mr. Olympia of all time, reigning champion Phil Heath was able to hold off 19 others to win his third consecutive Sandow trophy. Kai Greene once again finished as ‘The Gift’s’ runner-up and a much-improved Dennis Wolf placed third.

Shawn Rhoden, who took third in 2012, dropped down once placing to fourth, with the ageless Dexter Jackson fifth. Jay Cutler, who at 40 and returning to the Olympia stage after sitting out a year recovering from bicep surgery, may have been giving a parting gift with sixth place. The four-time Olympia winner is expected to announce his retirement.

Rounding out the top 10 were Roelly Winklaar (who looked better than he has since his rookie campaign as a pro), Mamdouh ‘Big Ramy ‘Elssbiay, Branch Warren and Lionel Beyeke.

Here is the finals scorecard:
