Pilgrimage to the Olympia
WFF champion Nick Makaronis recently did what many of us would love to do: take the trip of a lifetime to the Olympia.
When I sat down and had a coffee with this bodybuilder and martial artist, he had this to say: "It was definitely an experience, to be where it all happens to be at the event — where, as they say, 'legends are made' amongst the best bodybuilders in the world — was the accumulation of 20 years of bodybuilding and fitness training. I had been planning this trip for the last year and with the strength of the Aussie dollar, it was really a good time to view one of the best Olympias of all time. As a bodybuilder, I had been reading about the Olympia for many years, watching the DVDs and web footage and being there in person was fantastic. I was really surprised at how well it was organised and how superbly done the simple stage production was run. I think anyone who is a true fan of the sport, and admires what these men do to achieve greatness, should try to make the pilgrimage to the Olympia at least once in their lifetime!"
