Mr Olympia 1981 | Bodybuilding history | Franco Columbu 1981 Winner


Mr Olympia 1981

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.
