    With the Mr. O comp coming up and only 12 winners since it started in 1965 (pretty amazing), who in your opinion was the greatest bodybuilder to never win the Mr. O?

    Btw... here's a complete list of Mr. O results:

    Mr. Olympia Contest Results

    P.s., I'm sure some good ones were left out of the poll, but there are only 10 allowed.

    My pick went to Robinson (even though I spelled his first name wrong), although I could have easily picked 4 or 5 others. I'm a big fan of the golden era so they always get the first nod from me.

    Btw... here's a pick of Robinson from last year at 64 years old:

    Damn, Robinson looked great and who says men over 60 can't ever compete? Didn't Serge Nubret still keep his physique in top form even after he turned 70?

    I think Ray, Wheeler and Levrone are in the top of guys who never won it. Love all of their physiques.

    Levrone had the best combination of mass and symmetry as well as being a good poser.

    I'll go with Gaspari from that list. Mike Christian and Albert Beckles would surely have one it once or twice had Lee Haney not been such a freak. Lee Labrada worked hard but just looked to small standing next to Haney at the end. Good post Ironinsanity.

    I almost put Beckles on the list. He was good.
