Arnold 2008 Recap!

We're sure everyone who was at the 2008 Arnold Expo at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, OH is still recovering! This year's preliminary reports estimate over 200,000 people came through the convention center. This was a huge jump from last year's attendance of 150,000 people. While many companies ran out of samples to give away due to the abnormally large crowds, there were still a lot to get, and as always, the ON booth lead the way with the most giveaways of the weekend.

Many of the people who stopped by the ON booth for our giveaways commented that this booth was the best booth on the show floor, as well as having the most samples. Friday's attendees were lined up outside the expo hall as early as 7am (the expo opened at 10:30) to be the first to hit their favorite booth. Judging from the 100 people deep line at the ON booth that formed within 5 mins of the show opening, it was clear that many of those early fans knew the best place to go. A large number of fans received sample packs of ON's new Nitro Core 24Carmel Toffee Fudge, 2:1:1 Recovery Colossal Chocolate, Vassive-NO Fruit Punch, and 100% Whey Gold Standard Chocolate Malt. As well as drink samples of Nitro Core 24 Cookies & Cream and Cinnamon Roll and Threshold Fruit Fusion. Not only did fans receive the latest and greatest from ON, but they also received a custom ON/ABB Arnold 2008 t-shirt, which could be seen worn by happy fans all over the expo. Arnold himself made a special trip over to the ON booth to say hi and shake hands with the ON fans.

At Veteran's Memorial Auditorium, Dexter Jackson took home his 3rd Arnold Classic Bodybuilding award edging out Phil Heath and Kai Green who placed 2nd and 3rd respectively. Taking top prize for Ms. International was Yaxeni Oriquen. Kimberly Klein won the Fitness International beating out Jennifer Hendershott, and Gina Aliotti won the Figure International beating out Jennifer Gates.

Thank you to all who stopped by the ON booth and for making this year's Arnold the best one yet! We appreciate each and every one who supports our products and enjoyed seeing all those who came by.
