Bannout was Mr. Olympia at a BW of 188 lbs. His
victory is the last one ever going to a sub-200
pounder. Possibly the last Olympia champion body that
could be reasonably attained without massive amounts of
pharmaceuticals (as nice as I can say that).

Samir set goals far ahead of what I ever had. I used
iron for better sports performance and later as a hobby
to stay in shape and look good.

Samir saw
Arnold and said "I want that to be me!" Samir is indeed
"The Lion."
