Iraq's top gym changed its name yesterday to "The Arnold Classic" to honor Arnold Schwarzenegger's win in California. From the man in the street to aspiring bodybuilders, Schwarzenegger has long been a near icon in the country.
"Before anything he is a champion," owner Sabah Mehdi said at his gym, where the country's top athletes have trained.
"He was a star of the movies. So it is no surprise that he is a champion politician. We need a strongman, a leader like him, in our country at this moment," said Mehdi.
