Shaun Clarida - Why Not Win The Olympia
This was 16 years of hard work...
"If I am an outsider looking in first and foremost I would be a doubter. Meaning, there's no way a bantam weight is EVER going to win the Olympia. Again, looking at it as an outsider, I would say, that guy is too small. There is no way for him to put on that much muscle to be competitive let alone win the Olympia. For me, I have always been that guy that I would do what ever it takes to win and be my absolute best."
"When I started off as a bantamweight in 2012 when I turned pro, again everyone doubted me. They said hey your career is over. You're too small. You're never going to win a pro show. You're never going to be a good pro. You should just quit. Why waste your time?"
"I said look, if I made it this far to turning pro, who's to say that I cant continue on and be a good pro, make it to that first call out, win a pro show, even win the Olympia."
"I had a conversation with Flex Lewis, he kind of put it into perspective that I am in the history books as the 3rd 212 Mr. Olympia champion. No matter what happens from here on out, that can never be erased."
