Never liked the liked the look of his physique and didn’t think he deserved the 82 Olympia win, but RIP and prayers to his family.

No one really stood out as a clear winner to me in 1982.
Zane and Bannout had better lines. I don’t know who should have got the title, but from what I’ve seen I wouldn’t have given it to Chris. He had some healed tendon ruptures that were not corrected with surgery, that didn’t help his overall look.

Rest In Peace champion :trophy:
