Arnold bowed out of the world of professional bodybuilding in 1975 very much on a high. During his decade of dominance (including 6 Mr. Olympia titles) he had re-invented the sport and inspired a new generation of elite athletes to compete in his wake.
After his famous 6th title, where he was victorious over “the new kid on the block”, Lou Ferrigno (who later went on to play the Incredible Hulk), Arnold embarked upon his hugely successful acting career. Arnold and pro competition shook hands and parted company. The new breed of hungry bodybuilders led by Frank Zane eagerly took over and stepped up to the new standard set by Schwarzenegger. After an absence of five years, six times Mr. Olympia winner Arnold Schwarzenegger makes a comeback and attempts to take the World Body Building Championship for the 7th time.
