The dencity in Francos back in 1981 was outstanding and his chest was always a real strong point, the legs were missing in 1981, but his over-all muscaluarity/cuts etc was spot on.

Yeah shawn was Outstanding hard to beleave he never got one... just 1 Mr O title...unlucky to start in the late 80s (the O in 88) was there to see a prime Lee Haney though-out the years Sad...then had to see Dorian hit his peak though the 90s Tongue.........then the poor Bastard run into Ronnie Coleman .... Huh Huh Huh...ive gone with Franco for his 2 O titles and the new standard he brought in the 1970s in terms of Dencity/hardness etc.

Not short enough. Labrada and shorter is short, Ray is about an inch taller than Lee. Otherwise next thing, we'll be calling Gaspari short as well, cause he's just a little taller than Shawn. And Eddie Robinson, Platz, etc.

How can we leave out Flavio Baccianini, all 4'11" of him.

Genetic freak though, he only trained 6 months of a year, otherwise he didnt even go near a gym. Now thats taking the term off-season literally...




Figo,

I agree with you regarding Flavio........ man was he awesome! He was just like Arnold and Franco in that he grew into a show...... stay lean and when you begin your prep for a show...... you actually gain weight and size instead of bulking nd then coming down in weight for competition. Flavio always looked superb on stage.

Plus his joints and tendons probably appreciated the 6 month lay off.

Columbu had unusually good density and dryness but was NEVER the world's best-built man, including the years of Olympia wins in shows where many of the world's top BBs weren't there. Obviously he benefitted mightily from the Schwarzenegger/Weider connection-he only came to America because of Schwarzenegger. His "win" in 81 is still the textbook example of Olympia politics.

Not the best short man either, could never beat Padilla for example if looked at objectively. Exactly and understandibly why Padilla retired after this nonsense.

Along with Labrada IMO, the best ever shorter man, if not one of the greatest ever.

One wonders what could have happened had he been allowed to compete and not been "benched" at 75 Universe. Maybe a Sandow? Was robbed in 81 for sure.



Padilla was the best short man ever. Take his head off and he looks like a mini Arnold. Wink
