Larry Scott


Extra names: Ларри Скотт, Легенда (англ. The Legend), Larry Scott. "The Golden Boy" Cemetery: Set cemetery

Larry Scott, nicknamed "the Legend" and "The Golden Boy" (born on October 12, 1938, in Blackfoot, Idaho, died on March 8, 2014, in Salt Lake City, Utah), was anAmerican IFBB professional bodybuilder. He won the inaugural 1965 Mr. Olympiacompetition and defended the crown at the 1966 Mr. Olympia contest, making him the only undefeated Mr. Olympia in the title's history.


Scott began training at age 16 and, by age 20, won the Mr. Idaho competition in 1959. After moving to California, he promptly won Mr. California (1960), Mr. Pacific Coast (1961), Mr. America (1962), and Mr. Universe (1964). When Joe Weider created the IFBB's Mr. Olympia title, Scott won the first two contests in 1965 and 1966. Although Scott retired after his 1966 Olympia win, he staged a brief comeback in 1979 before retiring from competition for good in 1980. He studied electronics at the California Air College, and was known to be a devout Mormon.

He was married to Rachel Ichikawa.

Prior to claiming his back-to-back Olympia titles, Scott took Mr. America in 1962 and Mr. Universe in 1964. He also had a minor role in the 1964 movie Muscle Beach Party. However, Scott is said to have possessed little apparent genetic potential when he started training with weights in 1956, his narrow shoulders having been a particular weak spot. He trained with Vince Gironda, another well-known bodybuilder of the time, and became best known for his arm development, particularly his impressive and unusually long biceps, which allowed for good development and shape. He attributed his football-shaped biceps to an exercise called the "Preacher Curl," invented by Gironda, which became part of the standard repertoire among many bodybuilders. The Preacher Curl is often called the Scott Curl, due to its association with Scott.

Scott was also a popular physique model during the early to mid-1960s, working for such famous photographers as Bruce of LA and Don Whitman (of the Western Photography Guild). His "posing strap" material for Pat Milo is considered fine art. It was Milo who introduced Scott to a wide, appreciative audience and helped him hone his posing and photographic persona: that of the "boy next door." Larry regularly appeared in all of Joe Weider's bodybuilding magazines, including Mr. America and Muscle Builder, and he also figured prominently in Demi Gods, Muscleboy, and The Young Physique.

From 1960 until his first retirement from competition in 1966, Scott was bodybuilding's top superstar. Bodybuilding magazines soon began capitalizing on his image, but Larry -- an IFBB athlete -- wrote exclusively for Joe Weider's publications. Larry's popularity completely eclipsed all other bodybuilders of his time, including such famous personalities as Freddy Ortiz, Chuck Sipes, Dave Draper, Leo Robert, Harold Poole, and Sergio Oliva. The phenomenon has since become known as "Larry Fever" and reached its apex at the 1966 Mr. Olympia competition, where Scott defended his title and once again took home the crown (literally, since the prize was $1,000 and an actual crown).

Scott's first retirement at the age of 28 sent shock waves throughout the sport. But Scott had other priorities (a second marriage), and after two Olympia wins, he felt he had done all he could do in competitive bodybuilding.

Rod Labbe, (a freelance writer and fan of Scott's) collaborated with Scott on four articles (a two-part interview in Flex magazine, two articles in Ironman, and an article in MuscleMag International). According to Labbe, "Larry [was] my childhood hero, a true American success story. It's an honor for me to work with him." Their last interview, entitled "The Golden Man," appeared in two consecutive issues of Ironman magazine in 2006. According to Labbe, the two had been collaborating on a new article for Fangoria magazine about American International's Muscle Beach Party (released in 1964), in which Scott played the role of "Rock," a bodybuilder who was part of "Jack Fanny's" (Don Rickles) exercise group (Scott's character name is listed incorrectly on the Internet Movie Databaseas "Riff" -- the shirts he wears in the film all read "Rock").

Scott lived his latter years in Salt Lake City, Utah where he ran his personal training company, and manufactured and sold eponymous custom-made gym equipment and health supplements. He was inducted into the IFBB Hall of Fame in 1999.

Declining health and death

Scott was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease in 2010, and succumbed to complications from the disease on March 8, 2014.

Larry Scott

Born October 12, 1938

Blackfoot, Idaho, USA

Larry Scott, “The Legend”, established and personified bodybuilding’s beach Adonis image, and duly became the sport’s Golden Boy after winning the IFBB Mr. America title in 1962 and the IFBB Mr. Universe in 1964. He was the first-ever IFBB Mr. Olympia in the contest’s initial two years of life, 1965 and 1966.

Joe Weider’s brainchild of a competition got the perfect first-time winner in Larry. Of all the Hall of Fame inductees, perhaps Scott started with the least raw potential. Told he was too narrow-shouldered – a condition then considered insurmountable – he persevered and packed on prodigious mounds of delt muscle which, coupled with the greatest arms in bodybuilding, enabled him to present front double-biceps shots that worked up a crowd like no other.

Witnesses still say that the audience reaction to his 1966 IFBB Mr. Olympia entrance was the most vociferous and emotional ever seen at a bodybuilding contest. A devout Mormon, Larry lives in Salt Lake City, where he runs his own bodybuilding advisory company.

Lawrence Scott Events: Celebrate the Holidays with Party Tips From Event Planner Extraordinaire Larry Scott, Social Life Magazine

December 19, 2016 at 5:15 pm

This holiday season, plan a party out of the ordinary with tips from event planner extraordinaire Larry Scott of Lawrence Scott Events. Larry has been planning one-of-a-kind-events for over two decades, and a signature Lawrence Scott Event offers guests a chance to enter a magical environment that allows them to escape and connect in a magnificent space unlike any other. All of Lawrence Scott Events’ services are in-house, so clients receive only the best customized décor, food, flowers and entertainment which blends together to make a perfect event.

According to Larry, the following tips can make your holiday gatherings both more enjoyable and relaxing. First, always make sure food is in abundance. Nobody wants to run out of food, and the leftovers can always be enjoyed during the next few days or put in the freezer. Secondly, serve either family style down the center of the table or set up a buffet – this way guest have choices and there is something even for the most discerning dinner guest. Thirdly, put the kids at the end of the table. And lastly, if not using staff to help serve the food, make a self-serve bar on the kitchen island. The reason behind the aforementioned tips is simply so that the host can enjoy the holiday together with their guests and not spend the evening running between the table and the kitchen.

For those who prefer hiring Larry and his talented team as opposed to planning the party themselves, customized events are offered all over the tri-state area and the East End. Larry Scott has always believed that “more is more” and nowhere is this approach better showcased than in his awe-inspiring displays and gourmet food offerings. There are as many varieties to the delicious dishes and drinks served as there are event themes – all in order to add to the event’s overall visual impact and playful possibilities. Part of what sets Scott’s style apart is his innate understanding of his guests and making everyone feel included. To him it is all about the mix — the high and the low, the formal and the relaxed — that comes together to make a truly standout celebration. And as they say, timing is everything. Perfect timing coupled with exacting choreography are what Larry’s signature invasions are all about. An adrenaline pop at just the right moment, the invasion gives the party life and smiles and unforgettable memories!

Past events Larry produced and clients/causes he continues to support include Make-A-Wish’s annual Night of Wishes gala, which he has supported for 26 years, the Hamptons Magazine’s annual summer fête, and the UJA-Federation’s Summerfest cocktail party, featuring a glittering array of private soirées. Larry Scott has a long undisclosed list of loyal A-list celebrity clients that keep rehiring him for his bespoke events and discreet and personable approach. Some of his high profile clients include Michael Bolton, Judge Judy, Howard Stern, Vera Wang and John Varvatos.

Larry Scott is equally known for producing spectacular one-of-a-kind events as he is for his philanthropic endeavors. With a long standing commitment to the community and decades of support for charity, Scott is viewed just as much as a philanthropist as he is a legendary events planner. Causes close to his heart include: Make–A–Wish, The Feinstein Institute, Live Out loud, Forward Face, City Of Hope and MS. Larry donates events services to over 30 charities annually.

Charity events that Lawrence Scott Events has produced throughout 2016 and continuously support include: the Feinstein Institute Summer Concert featuring One Republic, to which he donated the decor and services; the Southampton Hospital, for which he produced the annual summer gala; and the Michael Bolton Charities private dinner, concert and fundraiser, for which he produced and donated decor and services. Larry was also brought in again to add the “WOW” factor to the Global Lyme Alliance’s second annual NYC gala in October 2016. The sold out event honored Heather Glass, Bella Hadid, Arthur J. Mirante II and Karen Peetz.
