With so much hype surrounding the coronation of Justin Compton, Dexter adding to his legacy, and the giant question mark surrounding Cedric McMillan, it seems like everyone has forgotten the guy who finished last year with two wins, six top 5 finishes, and the owner of the most divesting most muscular in the business – Roelly Winklaar.
Roelly started last year off with a bang by taking a blow torch to the competition at the Chicago Pro show before going into hiding until the Olympia – a decision that in hindsight may have been responsible for him coming into Las Vegas a bit off of his game, after nearly upsetting Jay Cutler in the placing just the year prior.
Following his disappointing 12th place finish at the 2014 Olympia, Roelly managed to get his groove back on the European Tour, where he appeared sharper with each passing show, culminating with him taking top honors at the Nordic Pro to close out the year.
While he had a relatively short offseason between the Nordic Pro and his Arnold Classic prep – it may turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Throughout his career Roelly’s Achilles heel has been consistently nailing his conditioning, but without the opportunity to get too far out of shape, we could potentially see one of the better versions of Roelly Winklaar that haven’t seen in quite some time.
