im2401-larryscottOur hearts go out to the family and friends of Larry Scott.

While we compile our tributes, here is a brief history as well as video interviews on this great man.

[wikipedia.org] Larry Scott (October 12, 1938 – March 8, 2014), nicknamed "The Legend" and "The Golden Boy", was an American IFBB professional bodybuilder. He won the inaugural 1965 Mr. Olympia competition and defended the crown at the 1966 Mr. Olympia contest, making him the only undefeated Mr. Olympia in the title's history.

Scott began training at age 16 and, by age 20, won the Mr. Idaho competition in 1959. After moving to California, he promptly won Mr. California (1960), Mr. Pacific Coast (1961), Mr. America (1962), and Mr. Universe (1964). When Joe Weider created the IFBB's Mr. Olympia title, Scott won the first two contests in 1965 and 1966. Although Scott retired after his 1966 Olympia win, he staged a brief comeback in 1979 before retiring from competition for good in 1980. He studied electronics at the California Air College, and was known to be a devout Mormon.[1] He was married to Rachel Ichikawa.

On March 8, 2014, Scott died of complications from Alzheimer's disease in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was 75 years old.
