Kai Greene is out of the Olympia 2015!
This has come as quite a shock to the bodybuilding/fitness world as Kai was a favourite for at least a top 2 placing in the event.
In an emotional state Kai released a video earlier today on his Facebook fan page revealing he was banned from competing in this years Mr Olympia contest.
Kai is without doubt the peoples champion and most loved man in bodybuilding with a monstrous social following. The video quickly blew up with messages of support and condolences.
It was very obvious this was a huge emotional hit for Kai. This is a man who has dedicated the majority of his life to bodybuilding and dreamed of competing in the Olympia all his life. He is ready to compete and from photos/videos in recent weeks he looks to be at his best ever.
This news comes just 3 days before the pre-judging is set to kick off.
Kai Greene Out of the Olympia: Explained
Kai recently announced he was launching his supplement company Dynamik Muscle. Some have said this was the reason he is not competing. This is highly unlikely as he is ready to compete and clearly put in the work to be his best come show day.
Aside from that Kai would have most likely taken 2nd place and taken home somewhere in the region os US$130,000. So would he skip it? I highly doubt it.
The more likely cause of this was high contract with AMI, who owns Flex Magazine (who Kai is sponsored by) and also runs the Olympia. Kai mentioned issues he could not explain in the video,which are likely related to this. He had also paid for a booth to exhibit launch his new brand Dynamik Muscle but has now been banned from the event.
This is a devastating blow for Kai and we hope a resolution can be found and justice can be served to give everyone what they want.
