Natural_O, do you have any info on how Franco was able to rehabilitate his leg and knee after surgery from dislocating it in the World's Strongest Nan competition? I remember you have briefly mentioned something about this in a past post.


I remember reading in the magazines that Franco would walk up stairs sideways and backwards over and over again to make the knee stronger. His doctor told him he would be lucky to ever walk again, let alone compete in a bodybuilding contest. His 1981 Mr. Olympia victory is very controversial but the fact that Franco was able to come back and get onstage again in such great shape is really amazing. I also remember that Franco said he re-injured his knee again when he was filming "Conan the Barbarian" in January of 1981 when he jumped off a rock.

Good Post but we all know 1981 was a joke. Terrible.. Terrible.

I believe that's just the end-cap of the bar that's been welded in place.
