Arnold Schwarzenegger Mr. Olympia 7 times

  Arnold Schwarzenegger
Arnold Schwarzenegger, "The Austrian Oak", was a bodybuilding prodigy who won the 1967 NABBA Amateur Mr. Universe title at the age of 20.

He went on to take the professional version of that championship in 1968, 1969 and 1970.  Under the guidance and sponsorship of Joe Weider, he relocated to Santa Monica, California, in 1968 and within a year, became the most popular and charismatic bodybuilder in the sport. Arnold won the 1969 IFBB Mr. Universe and, in his IFBB Mr. Olympia debut that same year, placed second to Sergio Oliva, but Arnold never lost again.

He proceeded to dominate the IFBB Mr. Olympia with six consecutive wins, 1970 to 1975, before briefly retiring to pursue a film career.  He was the focus of attention in the ground-breaking movie Pumping Iron, which documented the 1975 IFBB Mr. Olympia
