Larry Scott - Brief Bio:

Larry Scott, "The Legend", established and personified bodybuilding's beach Adonis image, and duly became the sport's Golden Boy after winning the IFBB Mr. America title in 1962 and the IFBB Mr. Universe in 1964. He was the first-ever IFBB Mr. Olympia in the contest's initial two years of life, 1965 and 1966.

Joe Weider's brainchild of a competition got the perfect first-time winner in Larry. Of all the Hall of Fame inductees, perhaps Scott started with the least raw potential. Told he was too narrow-shouldered - a condition then considered insurmountable - he persevered and packed on prodigious mounds of delt muscle which, coupled with the greatest arms in bodybuilding, enabled him to present front double-biceps shots that worked up a crowd like no other.

When Larry won these first two Mr Olympia contests who would have ever thought it would develop to be the massive event it is today.

Witnesses still say that the audience reaction to his 1966 IFBB Mr. Olympia entrance was the most vociferous and emotional ever seen at a bodybuilding contest. A devout Mormon, Larry lives in Salt Lake City, where he runs his own bodybuilding advisory company.
