Musclemania Pro Sasho Ognenovski took to the stage at the 2015 Musclemania World Championship in Las Vegas to give it his all. The owner of the legendary Leisuredome Gym in Sydney has spent the last few years adding some quality lean mass to his already impressive physique. Sasho always brings amazing conditioning to the stage and this year was no exception which earned him a grand 2nd place in the Musclemania® Pro Tall Division. Sasho says "I brought to the stage what I feel is my best package yet but fell short of placing in front of the defending champion Samuel Dixon who is an absolute monster weighing 117kg at 6' tall! It came down to size vs conditioning. Being outweighed by 35kg proved to be a too big of a challenge to handle. A massive thanks and huge congratulation to my fiancee PaulaGym Nastics for placing 3rd in Figure America™ short division."
