History

1960s

The 1965 and 1966 Mr Olympia were won by Larry Scott, a famous bodybuilder of the time. Scott displayed a physique with defined muscle shape in his biceps, triceps, shoulders and chest, which were all large, rounded and fully shaped. His upper arms measured over 20 inches and were, at the time, among the largest ever displayed at a professional bodybuilding competition. Scott subsequently retired after his 1966 victory.

The 1967 Mr Olympia heralded a new era in bodybuilding competition. Sergio Oliva, nicknamed "The Myth", won the next 3 Mr Olympia competitions. At 5ft 11ins and 240lbs,[1] in bodyweight, Oliva displayed a level of muscle mass and definition - including a "V" shape of a large, well-formed upper-body that tapered down to a narrow waist - unlike anything seen in prior competitions. His upper arms measured nearly 22 inches, with his chest measured at 58 inches,[2] which tapered down to a 29 inch waist and two well-muscled legs. Oliva would go on to win the Mr. Olympia competition in 1967, 1968, and 1969 - where he would defeat Arnold Schwarzenegger 4 to 3, marking Schwarzenegger's first and only loss in a Mr. Olympia competition.

1970s

Arnold Schwarzenegger defeated Sergio Oliva at the 1970 Mr Olympia after finishing second the year before. At 6ft 2inches and 240lbs. he was able to match Sergio Oliva for size in his upper arms, chest and back. However, contest judges deemed that Schwarzenegger's extra definition and muscularity over Sergio Oliva were substantial enough to award him the title. Schwarzenegger successfully defended his title against Oliva in 1972, after which Oliva retired from the IFBB. Schwarzenegger went on to win the next three Mr. Olympia competitions, including the 1975 Mr. Olympia competition, which was highlighted in the film Pumping Iron and featured other notable bodybuilders such as Lou Ferrigno, Serge Nubret, and Franco Columbu, who would go on to win the 1976 competition.

Frank Zane won the 1977, 1978, and 1979 competitions. While not as physically massive as previous competitors such as Schwarzenegger, Oliva, or Ferrigno, Zane developed his physique to highlight symmetry, aesthetics, and definition. As such, Zane was able to defeat opponents who exceeded his own muscle-mass but lacked his level of muscular definition. Frank Zane on the cover of Mind, Body, Spirit Frank Zane (born June 28, 1942 in Kingston, Pennsylvania) is an American former professional bodybuilder and teacher. ...


1980s

In 1980, Schwarzenegger came out of retirement to win in what has been viewed as a controversial decision. Based on a noticeable lack of conditioning, compared to his previous competitions, allegations were made that Schwarzenegger was declared the winner based on his popularity and increasing celebrity, rather than his physique. Critics argued that the judges had been changed to those of Schwarzenegger's associates, and that Schwarzenegger himself had been a late entry into the competition. [citation needed]


The following year, Columbu was awarded a similarly controversial victory, which led critics to argue that the judging had lost its objective viewpoint and now awarded on reputation rather than quality of physique. [citation needed]Chris Dickerson won the 1982 competition, featuring a low percentage of overall body fat that highlighted each muscle in his physique. Objectivity is frequently held to be essential to journalistic professionalism (particularly in the United States); however, there is some disagreement about what the concept consists of. ...

1990s

Haney retired from competitive bodybuilding after his last Mr. Olympia victory in 1991.


Having placed 2nd to Haney the previous year, Dorian Yates won the 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, and 1997 competitions. During this time, judging in professional bodybuilding competitions started placing greater emphasis on muscle mass, with many bodybuilding traditionalists commenting that muscle mass had now become the most important factor to winning, even greater than that of symmetry, aesthetics and proportion. Dorian Yates (born April 19, 1962 in Sutton Coldfield, England), is the most successful professional British bodybuilder to date and has won the Mr. ...


Yates retired from competitive bodybuilding after his 1997 victory. Starting in 1998, Ronnie Coleman won the next eight competitions. Ronald Dean Coleman (Born:May 13, 1964 in Monroe, Louisiana, U.S.) is an American bodybuilder and an eight-time Mr. ...

Cutler succesfully defended his title in 2007 and won his second title. Jay Cutler (born August 3, 1973 in Worcester, Massachusetts, USA) is an American bodybuilder. ...


Qualifying

All Mr. Olympia competitors must meet the qualifying criteria. Possible methods of qualifying are:

  • Previous Mr. Olympia winner (but if more than 5 years have passed IFBB approval is required)
  • Top 6 finalist from previous year's Mr. Olympia
  • Top 6 finalist from same year's Arnold Classic
  • Top 5 finalist from same year's New York Men’s Professional (previously the Night of the Champions)
  • Top 3 finalist from any other competition in the I.F.B.B professional tour held during the subsequent year prior to the Mr. Olympia
  • The winner of the Masters Professional World Championships

On top of this, the event organizer can nominate one competitor, who has not qualified by other means, as a “special invitee”. Schwarzenegger was able to enter into the 1980 Mr. Olympia contest because of this rule and the fact that he had won the Mr. Olympia contest 5 years prior. The Arnold Classic is an annual bodybuilding competition, named after Arnold Schwarzenegger, that takes place in late February or early March in Columbus, Ohio, United States. ...
