    Where are they now? (Bodybuilding legends in their old age)

    So, after looking at some old 80s Mr. Olympia competition videos (as you can see from my Ed Corney thread) and finding out that in the 1983 Mr. O, Ed Corney was 50 years old... that got me thinking and it got me looking into some of the old bodybuilders and where they are currently today and how they look. I think this is deserving of it's own thread, and if anyone can find any recent pics of any of the other classic bodybuilding legends, post their pics here. Check this out!!!

    Dave Draper (at 63 years old in this pic):


    Dave Draper (at 64 years old in the following pics):

    Serge Nubret (at 65 years old, pics from 2003):


    Lee Haney (at 48 years old):


    Larry Scott (at 67 years old):


    Frank Zane (64 years old, as you can see):


    I think this is just amazing that these guys are keeping up their standard of fitness in their old ages. It really shows alot about this sport and throws all the shit right back in the faces of those ignorant morons who keep shouting "ALL BODYBUILDERS DIE YOUNG". And not only that, but all of these guys have juiced and/or currently juice... yet they are living well into their old ages!! I think that speaks for itself. Really shows the difference between use and abuse!

    I'm sure probably Serge Nubret there still did, and so did Ed Corney when he competed like 7 years ago in 2000/2001. And I wouldn't be surprised if guys like Dave Draper are on HRT. I don't see how guys like that wouldn't be.

    Hats off to these fellas. The Zane pic looks a bit odd, though.

    They all really inspire me.

    Reg Park, the man who inspired Arnold Schwarzenegger to become a competitive bodybuilder and ultimately launched him on the path to fame, has died after a long illness.

    Park died on Thursday morning in Joburg, with his family by his side.

    Earlier this year he was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma, a form of skin cancer. "He survived four times longer than they thought he would. The doctor told me that he had never seen someone with such an iron will to survive," said his son Jon Jon.

    A man known for his amazing strength and body to match
    His daughter Jeunesse said tributes had been coming in from around the world. "People from as far as Turkey have been saying how he changed their lives. He was the man with the biggest heart in the world. He was a legend. He was more than just a bodybuilder," she said.

    Park, who was 79, was one of the pioneers of modern bodybuilding. It was his success as a bodybuilder, and in particular his winning the Mr Universe competition on three occasions in the 1950s and 60s, that prompted Schwarzenegger to take to the professional side of the sport.

    Schwarzenegger was to go on to win that title five times.

    "Arnold said to Reg: 'I want to do what you do'. That was the start of Arnold's close association with our family. I remember him staying at our house," said Jeunesse.

    A man known for his amazing strength and body to match, Park was to also become a cult actor. He appeared in five Italian-made films, and was known for his part as Hercules.

    Years later it was the role of Hercules that was to launch Schwarzenegger's foray onto the big screen.

    Park started his bodybuilding career in his native England and came to prominence when he won the 1949 Mr Britain. He then travelled to the United States, where he met bodybuilding promoter Joe Weider, who began featuring Park in his magazines.

    Later in life Park was to perform the master of ceremonies duties at various Mr Universe and Mr Olympia contests.

    He later settled in South Africa, where he continued to train clients at the Virgin Active gym in Morningside, Sandton.

    Jon Jon followed his father into the bodybuilding business and is the owner of the Legacy Gym in Los Angeles. Jon Jon had returned to SA two weeks ago to be at his father's side.

    "He loved the vast skies and sunshine in South Africa, and it was the sunshine that eventually got him," Jeunesse said.
