This was in fact the first major outing for the MuscleGenes team, and what a place to start. Mark and I have been attending the Olympia events for some time, but it was a new experience for the rest of the team.
Mr Olympia is the title awarded to the winner of the professional men’s bodybuilding contest at Joe Weider’s Olympia Weekend—an international bodybuilding competition that is held annually by the International Federation of BodyBuilding & Fitness (IFBB). Joe Weider created the contest to enable the Mr. Universe winners to continue competing and to earn money. The first Mr. Olympia was held on September 18, 1965 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York City, with Larry Scott winning his first of two straight titles.
We have set up a neat Facebook album and a Pinterest board of our time at the Olympia expo, so feel free to go and take a look. This is something we’ll be doing moving forwards, so we will be able to give you a run down of all of the events that we attend!
