In this Evolutionary episode your hosts Stevesmi and Da Mobster have a look at the 1982 Mr Olympia Chris Dickerson. In light of his recent passing we celebrate his life, and how he changed bodybuilding forever, on the backdrop of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
• His background in opera and drama and how that got him into bodybuilding
• How it also gave him a presence on stage
• Being the first Afro-American (Black) Mr O (82 in London. He was aged 43). Also, like Dexter Jackson, competing in the masters Olympia (1994)
• Competed 40+ times over three decades
• Buddy of and coached by Bill Pearl (famed for 5am workouts)
• Dignity at the 1980 and 1981 comps when others refused to compete again with Franco or Arnold
• Being gay (openly according to wiki) as well as dealing with issues being Afro-American
• One of triplets – the other two passing some time before him and whether his healthy life-style helped
• Check out his 1981 season. Places 2nd at the Olympia and then pretty much wins (5x) or places 2nd (2x) of 7 Grand Prix events
