Mr Olympia 1981

The 1981 Mr. Olympia contest was an IFBB professional bodybuilding competition held on October 10, 1981 at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Columbus, Ohio.

Total prize money awarded was $50,000.

Following the 1980 Mr. Olympia controversy, a number of favored bodybuilders boycotted the event, including Frank Zane, Mike Mentzer, and Boyer Coe.

Franco Columbu won the contest despite it being his first Mr. Olympia appearance in five years and recovering from a major knee injury which severely impacted his leg muscle conditioning and overall symmetry.

Franco’s win was also controversial due to his friendship with Arnold Schwarzenegger who co-promoted the event, and Franco Fassi who was one of the judges.
CBS was contractually obligated to pay $20,000 for filming rights, but decided to not film the event.

Mr Olympia 1980 | Bodybuilding history | Arnold Schwarzenegger Winner


Mr Olympia 1980

Mr Olympia 1980

The 1980 Mr. Olympia contest was an IFBB professional bodybuilding competition held on October 4, 1980 at the Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia.

The event was one of the most controversial and debated competitions in bodybuilding history. While training for his acting role in the 1982 film Conan the Barbarian, Arnold Schwarzenegger stunned the bodybuilding world by unexpectedly coming out of retirement and entering the Mr. Olympia contest one day prior to the event and after having trained for only eight weeks prior. When asked about his decision to enter the competition, Arnold said “we’re going to start shooting the first few scenes (of Conan) in October, and so I really wanted to be muscular because the idea was that Conan was a very muscular, heroic looking guy, and that I should be in top shape… the closer I came to this competition more people started speculating on the idea that I would be competing and the more I started thinking about the possibility. And so around 3 weeks or 2 weeks ago I decided, well, I think it would be a kind of an interesting challenge to do something in 8 weeks that most of the guys do, preparing a year or two years in advance.”

Frank Zane, the defending three-time Mr. Olympia champion, entered the contest after recovering from a life-threatening injury. Although Zane had completely recovered and had retained his definition, much of his muscular size from the year before was missing. Other favorites at the competition, including Mike Mentzer, Chris Dickerson, and Boyer Coe, were in excellent condition making the 1980 event one of the most competitive Mr. Olympia contests.

After final judging, Arnold was declared the winner of the contest, a decision that was criticized by attendees and competitors because Arnold lacked his usual size and muscular definition. Many audience members booed as the results were announced. After accepting the runner-up position, Dickerson jumped off stage yelling “I can’t believe it!”. Although Coe and Mentzer were tied for fourth in scoring, Mentzer was given the fifth place award. Mentzer was outspoken in his belief that he was the victim of politics and conspiracy. Zane reportedly threw his trophy against the wall backstage.

During his acceptance speech, Arnold acknowledged how close the decision was, saying “I have to be very honest, that this was the highest level of competition that I have ever faced in any competition in my life”.

In the aftermath of the competition, many of the competitors, including Frank Zane, Coe, Mentzer, and Walker, vowed to boycott the 1981 contest. CBS Television attended and filmed the 1980 contest but decided not to air the contest on broadcast television as planned. It was the last time the Mr. Olympia contest was filmed by an American broadcast television network.

Arnold Schwarzenegger won his seventh Mr. Olympia and officially retired from professional bodybuilding.

Mr Olympia 1980 unlike previous contests which had two weight devisions (above and below 200 lbs), this contest had no weight divisions forcing large and small bodybuilders to compete directly against one another.
The loss and resulting controversy had a major impact on Mike Mentzer personally and professionally, it would be the last time he competed in professional bodybuilding.
