A few months ago while thumbing through a copy of Ironman magazine at Barnes & Noble, I read a question posed to Mr. Natural Olympia Jon Hansen.
I have nothing against Jon. He appears to be a nice guy and always answers everyone’s questions thoroughly. But the person that asked him this question had some balls. The question was had Jon every used steroids in his life. Hansen went on to say that he had used them for a short time in his late teens or early twenties, I can’t exactly remember, then abandoned them and has been “natural” ever since.
He’s not natural. That would be like saying someone that used juice for ten years but for the past two hasn’t used, yet has a great physique due to juicing for ten years, is now a natural. Uh, no.
I lost some respect for Jon Hansen after that. To me, a natural is someone who has never taken anabolic steroids, ever, even for a day. Anyone agree? Disagree?
