Big Ramy wins “Mr. Olympia” or the second year in a row
Big Ramy, managed to maintain his title in the Mr. Olympia Championship in the 2021 edition for the second year in a row.
We have had a new Mr. Olympia champion every year since 2018 when Phil Heath lost his throne to Shawn Rhoden. But Ramy, with his second Mr. Olympia title win, puts a halt on the Sandow trading.
The Mr. Olympia showdown is arguably the biggest attraction of the Olympia weekend. Since Mr. Olympia is the biggest and most prestigious bodybuilding show, the athlete who wins it is considered one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time.
Although 19 athletes went head to head for the Mr. Olympia throne, Big Ramy, Brandon Curry, Hunter Labrada, and Haddi Choopan were being considered the front runners for the 2021 Mr. Olympia title.
Big Ramy was the defending champion at Mr. Olympia 2021. He looked way better – dryer and harder, compared to what he did at pre-judging. Big Ramy’s posing routine was flawless and a treat to watch.
Big Ramy stirred up excitement at the 2021 Mr. Olympia Press Conference with his “winter is coming” reference (a famous Game of Thrones dialogue). Ramy said the same thing before conquering the 2020 Mr. Olympia title. He then added to the fans’ exhilarating by posing to GoT’s official soundtrack at the pre-judging on Friday.
