In my opinion Ramy should’ve taken this one. Bigger, alot more definiton than last year.. Just overall great physique. He did although lack definition in the legs.. Mostly visible from the front. Phil… Well Phil looks good but I think he’s getting sloppy with each year. His gut is unacceptable… I think Olympia is just rigged and it’s about who has the popular vote and who has more money… Not to mention they wanna keep Phil up on stage till he beats/sets a record, so he could go in the books..you know, to bring a new “champion” to the Olympia. Thats my opinion.
Charles "Wag" Bennett, one of the judges at the 1966 competition, was impressed with Schwarzenegger and he offered to coach him. As Schwarzenegger had little money, Bennett invited him to stay in his crowded family home above one of his two gyms in Forest Gate, London . Yorton's leg definition had been judged superior, and Schwarzenegger, under a training program devised by Bennett, concentrated on improving the muscle definition and power in his legs. Staying in the East End of London helped Schwarzenegger improve his rudimentary grasp of the English language.   Living with the Bennetts also changed him as a person: "Being with them made me so much more sophisticated. When you're the age I was then, you're always looking for approval, for love, for attention and also for guidance. At the time, I wasn't really aware of that. But now, looking back, I see that the Bennett family fulfilled all those needs. Especially my need to be the best in the world. To be recognized and to feel unique and special. They saw that I needed that care and attention and love.”
