2018 MR. OLYMPIA
Shawn “Flexatron” Rhoden began bodybuilding in 1992. His dream was to become Mr Olympia. In ’92, Shawn met former Mr. Universe, Yohnnie Shambourger. Shambourger provided Shawn with the building blocks to create one of the most sculpted, muscular physiques in the nation. In over 10 years of training, Shawn took his 155-lb frame and turned it into 260-lbs (in the off season) of solid muscle. Shawn’s success has been overcoming injuries, beating alcoholism and depression and the birth of his precious daughter, Cora. Shawn is not only an incredible bodybuilder, but he also has an incredible fighting spirit, work ethic and the heart of a champion which are the qualities that will take him as far as he wants to go in the sport. Shawn “Flexatron” Rhoden is a true champion and his message to everyone is to not give up on your dreams, however impossible these may seem. “Dream to Believe”.
He joined the Tesla Nutrition TEAM in 2020.
