    Kai Greene's Take On Hadi Choopan Competing In Men's Open Olympia 2019

    Kai Greene's Take On Hadi Choopan Competing In Men's Open Olympia 2019

    Kai Greene Interview: Kai goes into detail on Hadi Choopanís physique and decision to compete in Menís Open at Olympia 2019.

    One of the biggest standout moments from the Olympia 2019 was Hadi Choopan finally competing in the United States. Not only did he surprise us all last minute with announcement of receiving a visa to compete at the Mr. Olympia Ė but he also ended up competing in the Menís Open as opposed to the Menís 212 (where many believed he could have easily scooped up a first place victory).

    Even more impressive is that Choopan ended up getting third place in the Menís Open category Ė proving to the world what it seemed Choopan already knew Ė that he can stand up against the best of the best in the Menís Open class.

    During our time interviewing Kai Greene at the New York Comic Con this past weekend, we decided to ask Kai what he thought of Hadi Choopanís physique and more importantly his decision to battle it out in Menís Open rather than the Menís 212. Unsurprisingly, Kai Greene was extremely impressed by Choopanís physique and was even more impressed by the tough decision made to stick it out in the Menís Open division. You can watch Kaiís full response in the GI Exclusive video below!

    A lot of people in my circle really felt like Hadi should have won. I agree with Kai, the man came in on a mission.

    I don't think he should have won because the look they are promoting for Mr Olympia now.

    I do think he should have placed ahead of Bonac though.

    Chris Aceto talks about the call outs and how big a role they play at larger shows and, it played out that way here.

    Say in your first call you have three taller guys with smaller waists and then two shorter guys who are a bit blockier.

    Depending on where they're moving them around you basically end up just judging those body types against each other and not tall vs short.

    A call out with say Sandoe, Winklar, Curry, kucklo and hadi isn't a great call for hadi. Now he's fighting guys with more size and better shouldersl to waist ratio. (his is crazy though) there's no one to compare him to really so, he has much less shot at winning that show given they're all in shape which they were not.

    Call outs are a major part
