Egyptian Bodybuilder ‘Big Ramy’ Joins Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Olympia Laureate

The prestigious Mr. Olympia title has been held by the most professional and established bodybuilders in the world, including actors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lou Ferrigno.

In yet another Egyptian athletic achievement, bodybuilder Mamdouh Elssbiay (aka Big Ramy) just earned his first silver medal at the prestigious bodybuilding contest Mr. Olympia in Las Vegas on Sunday, coming in second to US contestant Phil Heath, KingFut reports.

Born in the delta governorate of Kafr El Sheikh in 1984, Big Ramy started pursuing bodybuilding after moving to Kuwait in 2010. After two years of constant training, during which he surpassed his trainers' expectations, Big Ramy took home the gold at Kuwait's national bodybuilding championship, after which he made his first appearance at Mr. Olympia later that same year at the amateurs' contest.

After winning the 8th, 5th, and 4th positions in the 2013, 2014, and 2015 Mr. Olympia editions consecutively, Big Malek snatched the 2nd place this season, earning himself a cash prize of $150,000.

Held annually by the Madrid-based  International Federation of BodyBuilding and Fitness (IFBB), Mr. Olympia is the world's most prominent bodybuilding contest since its first edition in 1965. The prestigious Mr. Olympia title has since been held by the most professional and established bodybuilders in the world, including actors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lou Ferrigno.
