Phil Heath is on a path to breaking all-time Olympia wins record, a record held by two men: Lee Haney and Ronnie Coleman. Coleman, in particular, resonates with so many fans of the sport because of his sheer size as well as still being active in the last ten years. Coleman’s reign was so impressive in a time that saw him competing against other greats like Flex Wheeler, Shawn Ray, Kevin Levrone, and Jay Cutler just to name a few. All of those men were monsters in their own right, each of them easily deserving at least one Olympia win. But Coleman was there to shut them all down.
Since Phil Heath is on a streak himself, and he is a monster, 6-time champ, and has the potential to surpass Coleman’s record. But Coleman was so massive, so symmetrical; you’d have to think he possibly would’ve defeated The Gift as talented as he is?
