Ronnie Dean Coleman holds the record of eight straight wins as Mr. Olympia, a record career total that he shares with Lee Haney. Alongside his eight Mr. Olympia wins as a professional bodybuilder, Coleman holds the record for most wins as an IFBB professional with 26.
Coleman's harrowing fall from the greatest bodybuilder in history to a shell of the man who redefined a sport is documented in a new film uploaded to Netflix this month and it's incredibly difficult to watch. It started with blown out disks in his back. Then as the pain got worse and worse he had multiple surgeries. Later he had hip replacements, which caused him trouble walking during rehab, but weren’t the main factor in his near complete debilitation.
Despite this life of agony it's revealed the now 54-year-old still goes to gym at 4.30am every day. This is a man who have allowed his obsession to get the best out of him.
