This just in from and

The body building world lost a world class champion on March 8, 2014.  His name was Larry Scott,
Larry was the first ever Mr Olympia in 1965, and defended for a second year in a row in 1966, followed by the late Sergio "The Myth" Oliva.

He had developed his uncanny 20/21 inch biceps through disciplined training and attributed his peaking biceps to preacher curls, invented by Vince Gironda, tho' many think of the  Preacher Curl as the Scott curl, due to his association with that particular exercise.  

His over all symmetry is somewhat lost by todays standards.  He graced us with a few appearances in B movies of his time.  Sadly he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease in 2010, he succumbed March 8th , 2014  at the age of 75.  He also survived two marriages!

Larry and his proud Momma. 


Rest in Peace and Godspeed.
