Ronnie, knee-deep in contest prep and in all-out training camp mode, was just quoted moments ago as saying, “This is it for me at the Olympia, and September 29th will be the last time I step on a Mr. Olympia stage.

I don’t take anything for granted and appreciate all the support from the bottom of my heart. I’ll see you all at the Olympia!”
