Can Cedric do it again?

Cedric McMillan will be one of the IFBB Pro bodybuilders who will battle it out for gold at the Arnold Classic as part of the Arnold Sports Festival to be hosted in Columbus in Ohio in March.

McMillan, who stands 1.85m tall and weighs 118kg in competition shape, won the prestigious Arnold Classic for the first time in 2017, a career-defining victory that has for a long time eluded him. Will the former US Army instructor, who is known in bodybuilding circles as a more “aesthetic competitor”, be able to repeat his victory? Only time will tell.

McMillan, five-time champion Dexter Jackson and 2014 champion Dennis Wolf will lead a field of outstanding bodybuilders who will take to the stage in Ohio for the 30th edition of the Arnold Classic scheduled for 3 March 2018.

The timeless Jackson won the show in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2013 and 2015 and boasts with the event’s record with five titles, one more than the legendary Flex Wheeler.
