When in 1969, Arnold made his debut at the Mr. Olympia stage, he failed to secure the title. Standing next to 3x winner Sergio Oliva, the young lad had his eyes fixed on the following year’s title. Thus, when he returned in 1970, he ensured to claim his title. He secured his first Mr. Olympia title and became the youngest contender to win the competition at 23. A record that remains unbroken to date.

Dominating the bodybuilding stage single-handedly, he continued his winning streak from 1971 to 1975. He took a brief break to focus on his budding acting career, only to return in 1980 to claim his seventh and last win. The legacy that Arnold crafted is to date remembered in the “Arnold Classic” annual bodybuilding competition. As the 2022 Mr. Olympia is approaching, bodybuilding fans are excited. Hopefully, as Arnold has said, the fans will see more videos from Arnold’s archives.
