Correction

This is Ronny Rockel, the real third place winner at the 2009 Iron Man Pro.
In the previous post I posted a scan of Evgeny Mishin mislabelled as Ronny. Evgeny finished seventeenth.

Branch Warren




Branch Warren from photos by Per Bernal.

From an article in Muscular Development by Ron Harris:
"Back in the old days, the AAU Mr.
America...used to give out awards for individual body parts." he goes on to say,
"I think I know who would soon have a whole collection of trophies for 'best
chest' - none other than Branch Warren. And i think it's safe to say he
might pick up more than a couple for his legs, too."
