'The ABA began as a series of small contests I held in my Southern California gym and today the ABA is the world’s premier natural bodybuilding association holding contests all over the world. This progress was not the result of luck or simply throwing money at the project. It happened because there was a need: thoughtful athletes realized that the drug usage associated with strength training and bodybuilding was contrary to good health, sportsmanship, and the true spirit of athletics. The success of the ABA is directly attributed to the magical combination of great athletes and staff personnel sharing my vision of a world-class bodybuilding association. Of these things we can all be exceedingly proud.'
