The 1998 Mr. Olympia contest was an IFBB professional bodybuilding competition held on October 10, 1998 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York.

The total prize money awarded was $300,000.

Dorian Yates, who sustained a severe tricep injury before winning the 1997 Mr. Olympia, announced his retirement leaving way for a new champion.
Ronnie Coleman surprised the field by winning the title over the more established favorites, Flex Wheeler, Nasser El Sonbaty, and Shawn Ray.
Paul Dillet was suffering from severe dehydration and passed out after just 10 minutes of pre-judging, and dropped out of the competition.
