Het ongelofelijke verhaal van Shawn 'Flexatron' Roden

Shawn "Flexatron" Rhoden (born April 2, 1975) is a Jamaican American professional bodybuilder. Born in Jamaica, Rhoden immigrated to the United States in 1990 and settled in Maryland. He went through a period of alcohol addiction following his father Lloyd's demise in 2002 but overcame it with help from his friend Lenore Carroll. An aspiring soccer player in his early teens, Rhoden started bodybuilding in 1992 with inspiration from former Mr. Universe Yohnnie Shambourger and, after an amateur career ruptured with several injuries and alcohol dependence, won his IFBB Pro card by 2010. He was the 11th at the 2011 Mr. Olympia (Mr. Olympia debut), 3rd at the 2012 Mr. Olympia, and 4th at the 2013 Mr. Olympia competition. In 2014, Shawn Rhoden took 3rd place at the 2014 Mr. Olympia competition and again 3rd place at the 2015 Mr. Olympia competition making it his second best win. Rhoden currently holds his best win in 2016, placing 2nd at the 2016 Mr. Olympia.
