Lionel Beyeke Wins 2012 Flex Pro!

Lionel Beyeke Wins 2012 Flex Pro. The second annual IFBB FLEX Pro is in the books and the 2012 season is off with a bang. The results were somehow predictable and surprising all at the same time. Grabbing his first-ever professional win was the Frenchman, Lionel Beyeke. He brought size, shape, and symmetry that were unrivaled on this stage, but his conditioning left something to be desired. During the pre-judging he looked to be battling it out for third, but Beyeke came back to the finals looking a bit harder and it was enough to push him into first.»

Winning 2012 Mr. Olympia would be the best career finale and would be the return of the king. Jay Cutler would take away the Mr. Olympia title from the same man who took it away from him the previous year. It happened in 2009 when he beat reigning champ Dexter Jackson after losing it in 2008. If Jay can repeat that feat next year I think he should then retire.»
