Franco Columbu

Franco Columbu is another one of my favorite “golden era” bodybuilders.  I first saw him in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding.  Columbu’s strength was awesome–he could deadlift over 700 pounds. 

Columbu managed to win Mr Olympia twice in spite of his height disadvantage (he is only 5 feet 5 inches tall). 

Here’s Columbu’s official website:
