Bodybuilding is a sport that has witnessed a lot of unusual or even unbelievable stories. Most of the great sportsmen were born to success, they felt their physical and mental privilege, making their first steps on a stage of the great bodybuilding contests.
Some sports experts say that they can see future champions before their first professional competition. However, there are also stories of a different type. Shawn Rhoden is a real ‘Cinderella’ in the world of bodybuilding.
Shawn has always been an example of a hard-working and serious sportsman. He has started his career being young and has always been devoted to the sport he chose. However, he has always stayed one of many. Most of the time Shawn has been an average sportsman and has never attracted too much attention.
However, 2018 became a year that changed everything. Shawn shocked the jury of the Olympia contest with the simply perfect physique and great posing skills. Comparing 2017 and 2018 performances of Shawn you have a feeling that you watch absolutely different people being on the Olympia stage.
Later, Shawn told that his victory was a result of his strong ambitions and desire to prove that he was worth something. The bodybuilder who dedicated a great part of his life to the sport was ready to stop competing, feeling that he can never become a champion.
Such stories are very common in popular movies, however, this almost never happens in real life. The story of Shawn is another proof that everything is possible.
Now, months after 2018 Olympia, the sportsman is trying to find out what was that special key that led him to success. Moreover, he shares his thoughts with his fans and subscribers, thinking it can help other people to discover their own lucky formulae.
Recently Shawn told that it was his endless patience that allowed him to get to the top. He shared a collage with photos dated with different dates. Those pictures demonstrated his slow but confident progress. Just three photos showed the incredible way from being average to becoming the Olympia king.
