Chris Cormier Is In!
Like last year, when Chris Cormier stepped up on the last day and entered the 2001 Ironman Pro, Chris at first wanted to the Ironman, then decided not to, and now has decided to compete in the 2002 Ironman. With Chris winning the last three Ironman's, Chris is most definately the favorite at the 2002 Ironman. Other favorites include Dennis James, Garrett Downing, Lee Priest and Quincy Taylor.
Rookie Of The Year?
Judging from whispers around the Los Angeles gyms, it looks like Quincy Taylor will be a force to contend with in his rookie year as a pro. Quincy, standing at 6'3" tall, and 290 pounds, will most definately be the biggest and heaviest bodybuilder when he steps on stage at the Ironman Pro. Quincy has a small chance of placing in the top three to grad a coveted Mr. Olympia invitation, as only a few in the past have done that in their first pro show, including King Kamali last year at the Ironman.
