Las Vegas, NV – Injuries are a part of the game. From football to bodybuilding. Just as Jeremy Shockey was forced to sit out Super Bowl XLII, Branch Warren is forced to watch from afar while the best bodybuilders in the world vie for the 2008 Mr. Olympia title.
While he rehabs his injured triceps, Warren will be here taking it all in. He was visibly disappointed when asked about missing the contest.
â€œVery much so,â€ he said during the â€˜Meet the Olympiansâ€™ event on Thursday night. â€œIâ€™ve been training very hard for the competition. I thought I would do very well, but things happen. But you have to keep the faith. Iâ€™ll be ready back at the Arnold Classic in March and Iâ€™ll be here next year.â€
Judging by the size of the man, the rest of the competitors should heed the warnings.
