    LEE PRIEST back in IFBB!


    IT'S OFFICIAL: LEE PRIEST IS BACK IN THE IFBB - Flex Online

    IT'S OFFICIAL: LEE PRIEST IS BACK IN THE IFBB
    IFBB votes to allow controversial Priest to return to competition

    by Allan Donnelly

    June 9, 2008

    FLEXONLINE.COM

    It’s official – Lee Priest is back in the IFBB, effective immediately.

    “Yes, he’s back in the IFBB,” IFBB Professional League Chairman Jim Manion said. “He’s free to enter any contest, he’s free to guest pose. He has to sign his membership card but other than that formality, which I’m sure he will do, he’s officially back.”

    Priest had been suspended by the IFBB since 2006, after choosing to compete in another organization, the now defunct Pro Division Inc. Priest had since reapplied for reinstatement. IFBB officials had originally planned to put Priest’s reinstatement up for a vote on Olympia Weekend, but recently decided to expedite that process in order to allow Priest a chance to qualify for the 2008 Olympia. When the decision was put to a vote, the committee voted overwhelmingly in Priest’s favor, as 11 of 16 members voted to allow Priest’s reinstatement.

    “I think the timing was right,” Manion said. “I think Lee has been penalized long enough. He’s made a lot of overtures obviously to try to get back in the IFBB. He was probably going to be allowed back in September, so we decided to let him get back involved with the IFBB sooner. I’m sure he can’t wait to jump back on stage and get back into the action.”

    Priest had been very outspoken in his decision to leave the IFBB, and, until recently, had been critical of officials for not allowing his reinstatement. However, Priest’s negative behavior has improved greatly in recent months, which led officials to believe the timing was right to allow Priest back in the IFBB.

    “I think he made a bad decision [to leave the IFBB] and I think he knows he made a bad decision,” Manion said. “If he does break the rules again this will be his last chance basically. But in my heart I think he regrets it, so I don’t think that will happen again.

    “The IFBB does not rely on one bodybuilder. One bodybuilder is not going to make or break the IFBB. Our federation is much too strong for that. Whether that be Lee Priest, who was suspended, or Ronnie Coleman retiring, the IFBB will always be moving forward.”

    Now that the path is cleared for Priest's return to competition, expect to see him on stage at the Atlantic City Pro on September 12-13, where he will attempt to qualify for the 2008 Olympia.

    I think Lee would do extremely well in the new 205 and under class, but he's used to the whole David and Goliath thing, so we'll see if Lee still has it in him to be a giant slayer.

    Good news though, Lee is one of my favorite bodybuilders.

    This is great news. I'd heard it rumored for a while, but it's nice to see that it's officially happened. Hopefully, we'll get to see him do a big show this year.

    I'm a member of that site.Where did you post it?The Q and A with priest is still unanswered.He just doesn't respond to it so I figured he doesn't get on that site.I guess he doesn't like that thread.

    I love him!I love his physique and attitude and everything.I love rerading his columns in MD.I just truly love the guy as the person I know him to be on top of his physique.Which in my opinion is as big as it gets while maintaing aesthetics.In my opinion,no one matches Lee with both size and pleasing shape.

    Well keep that in mind then.He can definately cut no problem!He doesn't bulk as dirty as he used to.He has admitted to binge eating while dieting.Just "sneaking away"and eating crap.A guy who trained him was saying you wouldn't see him for days.Lee said he would do cardio everytime he ate crap.I think he said he would do 6-8 hrs of cardio some days.My point is he still comes in ripped even when cheating.

    He was one of the first I loved at first too when getting into bb'ing.And he has stuck.All are impressive,but few realy stand out like he does.I should clarify stand out in a good pleasing way.

    wow he looks amazing in that contest! really i would put him top 4 if he came in like that against todays olympias. I wonder if he will compete this year and how he will look as he hasnt competed in a while. Another thing about eating so much in the offseason is i think when you pack on so much weight like that your legs are forced to grow esp calves and lee has amazing calves.

    Lee Priest has been my inspiration in bodybuilding for years......I have spoke with him on 4 occaisions. He is really cool and down to earth. I do not think there is a better build in bodybuilding than Lee... it is good to see he is back in the IFBB..... they had to reistate the guy, he is a very good crowd draw...and the IFBB is in the buisiness to make money. I think what I like most about the guy other than his inhuman physique is he is not afraid to speak his mind.....regardless of the consequences....he always spits it like it is is, no fluff or filler. Hale to the Blonde Myth!
