Motivation is a very important element for any sportsman. That’s the thing that makes an ordinary person a champion, giving the power to continue moving to the top day by day. Behind each story of success stands a thing that inspires and force not to give up.
This year Shawn Rhoden made everyone wonder. The sportsman who was 5th in 2017, has become an absolute Olympia champion. Shawn has always had good shape and dedicated lots of time and efforts for his bodybuilding career. However, the great change that has happened in one year is simply unbelievable.
Most sports critics decided there was a great motivation behind the victory and they were right. Shawn Rhoden revealed what gave him the power to work hard and to win this year competition.
The source of his determination, however, may wonder you. Shawn told that first time he felt strong desire to win after negative comments and criticism he received in 2017. Fans of the bodybuilder didn’t show any support when he was on the Olympia stage and attacked him with negative comments and offensive jokes later.
It was so painful that Rhoden decided he could never experience it one more time. The bodybuilder had two choices: to work harder than ever and demonstrate a great shape or to decline the idea of participating in Olympia again. Rhoden chose hard work. Starting every training with a strong desire to prove the sports society that he is worth being respected, Shawn soon noticed his great improvement and significant changes in his body.
The case of Shawn Rhoden is really interesting. The bodybuilder has not only guaranteed himself a place in the history of the sport but also became a great motivation for many sportsmen.
