We see in other sports guys who were proclaimed to be the next big thing that never achieved their full potential. The hype surrounding them never amounted to anything really.

What athletes in the sport of bodybuilding do you remember were hyped up beyond belief but never won a major show? Sergio Oliva Jr. comes to mind as one of the most recent competitors competing today who pretty much is a bust. Everyone was saying how he was going to contend for the Olympia, and I don't think he has ever placed has he? He does have a top 5 in the Arnold and a win in the New York Pro though.

But lets be honest, thats far from dominating the sport like so many believed he would.

Zack Khan. Looked like a monster in photos, but faded next to other IFBB pros. Tearing his quads really set him back.
