athlete_lgIt’s official. It’s been talked about and talked about for months and finally, tonight the best bodybuilders in the world gathered at the Orleans Arena ballroom to kick off Joe Weider’s 2009 Olympia Weekend. After getting a run-down of the greatest four-day event in bodybuilding, they’ll be back to take center stage on Friday and Saturday, September 25-26 to determine who will leave Vegas with the Sandow. In the meantime, check out our exclusive video interviews and galleries. Here’s the official list of competitors, in order of appearance:

Most of the 202 Showdown competitors were on hand for the early weigh-ins, with the exception of Clarence DeVis and Stan McQuay. Both Eduardo Correa and Mark Dugdale missed the 202 cutoff but have until tomorrow to drop the extra pound needed to make the show. Bet on both men standing on stage this Saturday.

Early numbers have last year’s 202 runner-up Kevin English weighing in at 201.6, with Flex Lewis – the third-place finisher in last year’s showdown – tipping the scales right at the 202 mark … in clothes.
