Nasser looked his all-time best at this years Mr. Olympia. He was thick from every angle and had amazing conditioning. His front double bicep and abs & thigh (and Shawn Ray) were best in the show. Nasser came third last year and also came third this year, but was later disqualified over a failed diuretic test (which was stupid in my opinion). Take a look and see one of the greatest mass monsters in bodybuilding history.

Yeah, he was ridiculous from the front, but he was hurting majorly from the back.

Nasser was one of the very freakiest mass monsters, yet he had an awesome midsection (including deep symmetrical abs) and little to no gut in an era where bloat was getting commonplace.

Should have won in 1996. Dorian's arms were completely messed up, that side triceps was just a mere shadow of earlier days. Yeah he had Nasser from the back, but not to the same degree as Nasser beat him from the front. I like this whole "the king must be beaten clearly and not only by a bit to dethrone him", but Yates was not good enough for that on this day.

Uncrowned Mr.O indeed.

lets at least get the facts right, Nasser was dq'd 96 for diuretics and he admitted it so no point crying about that one
97, yep, I give it to Nasser, his rear double bi looked better than 96, still loses rear lats but any other poses he loses are not by much. As a Dorian fan, that was a bad decision

The standards have definitely changed. A bodybuilder with soft glutes would never be second these days. I mean, cedric, although not spot on, had striated glutes and we all know what happened.
