Shawn Rhoden

Shawn "Flexatron" Rhoden (born April 2, 1975) is a Jamaican American professional bodybuilder. 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. 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.

Rhoden is romantically linked with eight-time World Arm Wrestling Champion Sarah B├Ąckman. Shawn Rhoden had a near-perfect 2012, taking home four victories and capturing 3rd place at the Olympia. Seeking to capitalize on this success and his undoubted genetic potential, "Flexatron" will enter this year's Olympia as one of the top-tier favorites.
