Shaun Clarida lives for bodybuilding. To say it is his passion just doesn’t give it justice. Shaun does the hard stuff plain and simple. He doesn’t do it for trophies or glory, shit he certainly doesn’t do it for 3rd place. He does it to be the best in the world and that’s a fact. Shaun came off his biggest and best off-season ever, and was ready to claim the 212lb Olympia Crown. This year it’s wasn't a goal, it’s a fact already written in stone, Shaun Clarida came to win, and he did!
Episode 5: 21 Weeks, 3 Minutes, 1 Dream
It was back in 2007 when Shaun Clarida became an IFBB pro bodybuilder as a bantamweight, where he was immediately marked as the “underdog”. Countless times since, he was told he would never be great, he will never win a pro show. On December 19th, 2020, Shaun silenced the world and heard “AND NEW” awarding him with the 1st place award and title of “212 Mr. Olympia Champion”. From 16th place in 2015, Shaun Clarida has risen through the 212lbs division and on the Olympia stage that Friday, he brought the best package of his life and one Olympia fans will remember forever. Shaun kept himself hidden throughout all 21 weeks of his prep and lived up to his name “The Giant Killer”. With emotions at an all-time high, and a very much deserved Olympia win, Shaun is ready to enjoy the rest of 2020 as the Mr. Olympia champion, but mark his words once Jan 2nd comes, he’s back to work and ready to defend his title. He fought many obstacles to win it, but he’s ready to prove to the bodybuilding world that he’s here to stay!
