Thread: Franco Columbo..the first under 202 Mr. Olympia

  1. #1

    Default Franco Columbo..the first under 202 Mr. Olympia

    Alot of people don't know that Dr, Franco Columbo was actually a 4 time mr. Olympia winner

    He won two overall titles and two lightweight titles

    He was also very strong

    Her are a few pics to pay homage to this great champion

    I have a pic of John Inzer included....john is a powerlifting champion known for his 765 deadlift at a bodyweight of 165...incredible

    What more incredible is that franco did around 800 lbs without a power suit


    Franco Columbo is the man .......The first true under 202 pound Mr, Olympiaand stronger than shit

    First off he did not lift 800lbslbs ever, He supposedly
    dead lifted 750lbs at 190lbs but that is not documented. I doubt he ever dead lifted over 700lbs in contest form.

    Yes he was the under 200lb champ 3x ( over all once) and in 1981 he was given a gift for his second over all win eventhough he was not even top 3 in that show.

    There is a pic somebody on MD has as their avatar which I could never a find larger image of. Its 1 with him and Arnold posing side by side I guess after each won the Olympia title 1 year. Franco is squatted down and Arnold is standing right behind him both guys are doing a bicep pose. So u see a juxtaposition. I always thought it was a cool pic.

    The current Mr Olympia and 202 mr O should do it lol

    Yes. I'd like to see some of the newer competitors get out of the gym for a day and compete in one of these strongman events. I'm sure that many of them could do quite well.

    I wonder what ForumRules thinks about Franco's arms since Haney and Yates have none. lol

    Franco had a sick upper chest though, especially for his day. Also embarrassed the other bodybuilders with his freak strength.

    Possibly the best chest of all time. No other bodybuilder has come close to matching his trademark upper and lower chest separation.
