Based on the photos, Cedric McMillan wasn’t close to being in top shape at the Europa Orlando over the weekend. Made no difference, though, as Big Mac coasted to the victory. Marcus Haley finished second, and Evgeny Mishin placed third as all three qualfied for the Mr. Olympia this September in Las Vegas. Michael Liberatore (4th) and Lee Banks (5th) rounded out the top five.
McMillan is also scheduled to compete at the New York Pro on May 28, and he will need to be much improved in that one if he hopes to battle for the crown. Kai Greene leads a strong list of competitors that will include Ronny Rockel, Roelly Winklaar (last year’s winner) USA champion Jason Huh and Brandon Curry, among others.
Make sure to check back for the NY Pro preview video on this site soon, which I did with Ron “Yogi” Avidan, and see if you agree with our picks.
