For years, the “The Legend” himself, Larry Scott ruled supreme over bodybuilding. He took no prisoners as he dominated every aspect of the sport. The first Mr. Olympia in history, the first multiple winner of the title and the first Mr. America, Mr. Universe, Mr. Olympia winner was unstoppable and untouchable. Even today, almost thirty years later, Larry Scott is a personality in bodybuilding people still seek information from and about.
There may very well have been more articles and stories done on Larry Scott than any bodybuilder in the entire history of the sport. Larry did and continues to recognize and appreciate his fans. This is something almost all of the greats from the “Golden Era” do. Sadly the same can’t be said about some of today’s stars that seem more interested in the dollar. Times have changed I know, whereas back in the 60’s bodybuilders had to work a regular job to make a living in addition to training. Today, professional bodybuilders have the luxury of making a living from their sport.
