COLUMBUS, OHIO, UNITED STATES, March 15, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Ohio, USA - To celebrate the news that IFBB legend and Hempe brand ambassador Flex Wheeler, was given a lifetime achievement award at the Arnold Sports Festival 2023 in Ohio and also to notify the public of a brand new 2023 NPC Worldwide sanctioned event â€œFlex Wheelerâ€™s Mexico Grand Battleâ€� on September 30th 2023, in Hermosillo, Mexico.
Arnold Schwarzenegger presented the Arnold Sports Festival 2023 Lifetime Achievement Award to Flex in person to rapturous applause and proclaimed that â€œI always considered you one of the greatest champions of all time. You had the symmetry, the size, and the most fantastic pose routine but not only that, thatâ€™s just talking about your bodyâ€¦But also the way youâ€™ve promoted the sport of bodybuilding. Youâ€™ve done an extraordinary job and thatâ€™s
why youâ€™re getting this lifetime achievement award for all the great things that youâ€™ve done for bodybuilding. Thank you Flex.â€�
Flex Wheeler has been a humble and legendary champion. He was visibly emotional responding to Arnoldâ€™s kind words and reciprocated on front of the raucous crowd â€œHis dream I know all about it, his childhood, him coming here with no money and barely able to speak English and became one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time and set the standard, one of the greatest box office actors in the world and then not only that but becoming the governor of California, you truly donâ€™t know what you mean to me. I never won an Olympia but I have the honour of this man here, calling me one of the greatest of all time and thatâ€™s better than anything. To have the recognition and the gratitude of your fellow colleagues, what more could you ask for?â€�
Flex continued by saying that he looks up to Arnold and the other greats of the sport that have paved the way for his success â€œIâ€™m so much trying to carry on in Arnoldâ€™s footsteps and everybody else that carries this sportâ€¦â€�
Then he compared their work with his own way of helping others â€�One of my ways of giving back is with Hempe Helpsâ€¦â€�
Flex suffers from considerable pain due to his leg amputation and he finds that Hempe really helps him and he considers that his way of giving back is through promoting the Hempe brand to help others as an official brand ambassador.
Before he walked off, he said â€œThereâ€™s so much I want to say but Iâ€™ll leave it at this. In the words of the great Jackie Robinsonâ€¦ I WAS BUILT FOR THIS.â€� Absolutely!
