Nathan De Asha is considered by some to be one of the best prospects in bodybuilding right now. He has been given an invitation to compete at the 2020 Arnold Classic, for his very first time.
De Asha went pro in 2016, immediately turning heads for his insane physique. He even competed at the Mr. Olympia in his first year as a pro, scoring a decent 15th placing. From that moment on, he has been looked at as one of the best up and coming competitors out there.
Unfortunately 2019 would see De Asha struggling to continue this run of impressive competition. Legal issues would see him only able to compete three times, pulling out of the Olympia. Although he would end the year on a strong note, with a second place at the Yamamoto Pro.
Nathan De Asha is looking to have a bit of a better time this year. Some news recently came out, suggesting that he could very well do that. According to a post from the Arnold Sports Festival, he will be competing at the 2020 Arnold Classic, going down this March, in Columbus, Ohio.
This was the announcement:
Normally fans would be excited about the Arnold debut of someone like De Asha. On the other hand, others have found disdain for the fact that he recently plead guilty of the distribution of steroids. While he did not serve any jail time, some still feel that this is disgraceful. Although it is worth noting that there are some who feel steroid use can be okay, if properly used.
Controversies aside, Nathan De Asha will be a great addition to the Arnold Classic. Hopefully he will stay out of trouble, and his potential will finally begin to show. Moreover, it will be interesting to see what kind of package he brings in his first appearance at this show.
