Shawn Ray

I have been competing for 17 years non-stop and have yet to fulfill my ultimate destiny of becoming Mr. Olympia. Experience has taught me to never give up on my dreams and fight 'til the end. When I began to realize bodybuilding was my career, I predicted by age 30 I would be done and on to something new and equally challenging. At age 34, reality tells me that if it ain't broke don't try to fix it. Bodybuilding is what I am good at.

I love my job, it's what dreams are made of and believe me, I feel more accomplished with what I have done than what many could only hope for. However, at age 34 I still have no Sandow trophy to show for all my hard work.

My focus when training for competition is second to none but when I am not training life's responsibilities are taking precedence over bodybuilding i.e.: planning for the future, a family, recreation, exploration, crosstraining and so on. True, I have plenty of gas left in my tank, yet I realize I am more than just an athlete, competitor and bodybuilder.
