Patrick Moore responds to Sergio Oliva Jr's statements about the absence of top guys at the 2019 Olympia.

A few days ago, Sergio Oliva Jr. sat down with Dave Palumbo of RXMuscle where he talked about the upcoming Arnold Classic of which he’ll be competing in plus other topics. But he made some statements that didn’t sit too well with last year’s 10th place Olympia finisher Patrick Moore of whom Oliva Jr. mentioned in the interview.

Oliva Jr. basically explained that several of the guys who placed within the top ten at the 2019 Mr. Olympia competition wouldn’t have done so if certain competitors were competing such as Phil Heath, Shawn Rhoden, and Big Ramy who would likely be top three guys.

Well, he used the example of Patrick Moore who came in 10th, implying that people should stop hyping certain guys because the best competitors were absent last year.

So, we’ll let you listen to Sergio Oliva Jr’s comments from the interview (at about the 13:19 mark) and we’ve also provided the Instagram post below the video where Patrick Moore fired back with his own statements.

“Can we please stop talking about how someone placed something at an Olympia where nobody was there said Oliva Jr said at one point.“
