Phil Heath managed to win the Olympia crown seven years in a row. However, his long reign was interrupted in 2018. The new winner and the main pretender for the first place in 2019 Shawn Rhoden amazed the jury of the contest with his incredible physique and posing skills. Moreover, many sports critics told that Phil looked worse and less concentrated than before.
In any case, Phil Heath had no chance to get the first place in 2018. He finished the competition being second and he definitely was not happy about that.

Wife of Phil Heath deleted the message and a few days after the sportsman posted some videos and photos, showing that he was ready to continue his hard work and training to improve his physique.
Now, there are no doubts that Phil is taking part in the upcoming Olympia competition. However, many sports experts tell that this time competition will be easy for no one. The battle for the Olympia crown is going to be very hot and interesting and no one can tell exactly what the result of it will be.
However, it looks like there’s one participant that is more confident than others. Phil Heath shared a video message advising everyone to prepare for the 2019 Olympia competition.
