Like countless others he forgot it's called: Body Building, as in health building.
More than his body, Platz was #1 for building his ego.
Tom Platz = Mr. Mega Ego
Platz was the world's hardest trainer. So.
What did it ever get him? Quote: "I'll win the Olympia or die trying!"
(Mohamed Makkawy ranked higher than Platz.)
He neither won nor died. Another blow hard bites the dust.
Now he's a big movie star! Did you know he starred in 8 Heads in a Duffel Bag, with Joe Pesci?
He did. He was one of the heads! Was he singing or dancing or both? Some star. ...and some say Arnold can't act.
Another quote: "...even the President of Ghana wanted to meet me." ...ego!
...and what's with bleaching his hair for 25 years? ha ha ha ha Has anyone ever told him how SILLY that looks? (Tell Lee Priest while you're at it. )
...and what's with Platz gritting his teeth in ever photo, as if he's lifting a car off someone?? Give us a break!
Platz is a nice guy(met him at the '81 Olympia), but he ain't no Golden Eagle.
Danny Padilla(5th place '81 Olympia) was the real winner of the 1981 Olympia! Danny's a class act all the way! Look for him at the next Masters O. He could come in at 215lbs., at 5'2"!
