Shawn Rhoden As He Becomes The New Mr. Olympia. For the first time since 2010, Philip Heath was not mentioned as the winner or crowned champion, it was a competitive weekend as Joe Weiders’s Mr. Olympia competition came to an end.

The event which started on Thursday and ended on Saturday at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas convention centre saw Shawn Rhoden defeating the Seven-time Mr. Olympia, Phil Heath.

As they stood next to each other, and the announcement came with these three words that have not been uttered by any announcer in the past eight years “And The New”, Shawn Rhoden pulled of the more improbable upset to defeat Philip (The Gift) Heath, the defending champion, the seven-time Mr. Olympia and became the new Mr. Olympia and the 14th man to have clinched bodybuilding’s most prestigious award.


See the list of the 10 men standing before before Shwan and Phil became the last two men and finally, Shawn became the New Mr. Olympia.

3)Roelly Winklaar
4) William Bonac
5) Brandon Curry
6)Big Ramy
