Once upon a time, the bodybuilding universe was much smaller and simpler. There were literally only a few pros in the world, and only one contest for them to compete in every year— the Mr. Olympia.

All that changed in 1989 when Arnold Schwarzenegger and former Columbus Mayor Jim Lorimer staged the first Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic.
