Shawn Rhoden out 2020 Olympia

Shawn Rhoden out of 2020 Mr. Olympia – Report.

The roller coaster life of 2018 Mr. Olympia Shawn Rhoden, continues with more drama and confusion.

It has been reported by Nick Trigili on his recent podcast that Shawn Rhoden most probably will not be competing at the 2020 Mr. Olympia.

This is not something new to report as Nick also confirms, but the new details that Nick has revealed confirms that Rhoden is 99% out of the 2020 Mr. Olympia. can confirm that Nick Trigili has very reliable sources is relation to this story.

Even though the Olympia is approximately five months away, these new developments can derail any plans Rhoden has in relation to the 2020 Mr. Olympia.

There are three major factors to this story that are very interesting.

Shawn Rhoden has left Venice, California and moved to Oxnard with his girlfriend. Oxnard is approximately a hour away with no traffic from Gold’s Gym, Venice.

It has been reported that not having a major sponsor and high living expenses has forced Rhoden to make the move.

With Shawn Rhoden living away from Venice, he will not be training with Charles Glass.

Charles Glass has been Shawn’s coach for a number of years after he parted ways with Chris ‘Psycho’ Lewis

Charles is one of the best motivators and with Shawn not having him by his side, he will surely suffer during his prep.

The third factor that will make it very difficult for Rhoden to prep for the 2020 Mr. Olympia is that his best friend and training partner Stanimal De Longeaux, has moved to Chicago.

Stanimal has been by Rhoden’s side for many years. Living in Venice, California can be very expensive and this is one of the reasons he has decided to move.

Building a new team approximately five months away from the 2020 Olympia Weekend will be a difficult task. These major changes will obviously hinder Shawn’s prep for the show.

Rhoden also has to deal with the legal problems due to the rape charges against him.

With all these new developments, it could possibly mean that Rhoden will most probably be missing from the 2020 Olympia lineup.


Stanimal confirmed that he moved after he posted a video training at a gym in Chicago.
Shawn Rhoden is seen in his latest video training at a new gym, most probably in Oxnard.
