Joe Weider Olympia Winners

Joe Weider’s Mr. Olympia Winners

The full list of every winner of the historic Mr. Olympia title.

The first Mr. Olympia contest was created by Joe and Ben Weider in 1965. The first winner would be Larry Scott.

There have only been 16 winners of this prestigious title. The names that stand out on the full list of Joe Weider’s Mr. Olympia winners are Arnold Schwarzenegger (7X winner), Lee Haney ( 8X winner), Dorian Yates (6X winner), Ronnie Coleman (8X winner) and Phil Heath (7X winner).

Since Phil Heath’s dominance ended in 2018, no winner has held on to the Olympia title for more than a year.

All eyes are now on Big Ramy to see if he can start a run of multiple titles.
