In a tribute from the event, Bob Gajda remarked “As a winner of the Natural Universe and Natural Olympia, you are an inspiration to us all. Your drug-tested contests provide a venue for drug-free athletes who choose honesty and hard work in their pursuit of excellence. Your books, DVDs, radio programs, and website promoting proper nutrition and correct exercise design is unparalleled among the current cacophony of misinformation.”
