“The biggest misconception is that if you take steroids, you can be Mr. Olympia. But I will put it this way; bodybuilding is a combination of science and sport.

Only one can win and others lose. And there are a lot of dramatic moments where we go in-depth and really see them motivating themselves every morning to train.”
