Since 2011 there has only been one man at the top of the Mr Olympia winners leaderboard and that has been Phil Heath. He is the reigning champ – can he hold on to his title this year? He even finished in the top three in his novice year. What a bodybuilder!
4 – Dorian Yates
This man from England takes fourth place on our list. He was on Mr Olympia winners podium amazingly 6 times and made him the fourth highest ranked of all time. His nickname of The Shadow is because he lived in the shadows until the big competitions came around. He then won more often than not. He is a very private man but a bodybuilding legend.

Good but I would put Coleman number 2. 297. 3% bodyfat. Hard to not put him up there.
Cheers man! Yeah, that was a tough one… I had him in the number 2 spot during the first draft but we wound up bumping him to the number 3 spot for Lee Haney. Ronnie Coleman will always be one of the greatest of all time!
Would put Dorian before Ronnie but everything else seems in order. Great article Adam, it’s not hard to notice that you have some great knowledge on this topic. Do you have more articles? Would love to see them.
Yeah I hear ya John, it was a tough call but I chose Ronnie, they’re both very evenly matched.
