< start="23.609" dur="12.171">complete like future of it and make history what I have in my hand it is>

< start="35.78" dur="17.279">nine lbs 14 oz a baby boy no matter what I will be forever the myth>

< start="58.28" dur="6.879">Sergio Oliva jr. that's right folks you know the name I think growing up with my>

< start="65.159" dur="5.401">dad being big you know like I knew what big was I knew what the best was I just>

< start="70.56" dur="4.34">wasn't gonna do bodybuilding unless I could be the best one day>

< start="78" dur="11.49">I mean it's too bad that your father passed away way way too early but if he>

< start="89.49" dur="4.47">would see this picture he will be laughing and he would be smiling and>

< start="93.96" dur="7.53">he'll be the happiest guy in the world so I just want you to know on his behalf I>

< start="101.49" dur="6.87">can tell you I know on my behalf how proud we are of you once I realized>

< start="108.36" dur="3.05">I was really into bodybuilding and I wanted to pursue it to be a pro I>

< start="111.41" dur="5.319">studied everything I read every book I could every encyclopedia of bodybuilding>

< start="116.729" dur="4.771">that's out there all without really training I just knew that was something>

< start="121.5" dur="4.2">I wanted to get into and then once I started trying to join gyms so my dad>

< start="125.7" dur="3.93">was really going above and beyond to try and stop me from joining gyms and stuff>

< start="129.63" dur="3.57">like that so I would try and sneak to gyms that I didn't think he knew about>

< start="133.2" dur="6.95">and he found out about them why do you think he was so resilient>

< start="140.15" dur="6.16">he did get you know screwed big-time by the sport you know times were different>

< start="146.31" dur="5.88">back in the 60s and 70s and him being the only colored person to win an>

< start="152.19" dur="2.97">Olympia let alone probably any shows besides Robbie Robinson>

< start="155.16" dur="3.84">it was just rare and I'm and I think there's a lot that he dealt with and I>

< start="159" dur="5.28">tried to explain to him that was 40-plus years ago and times have changed but>

< start="164.28" dur="4.59">then I started to realize now that I'm older I think it was just more that he>

< start="168.87" dur="4.53">grew up in Cuba he only went to third grade you know he's been working on>

< start="173.4" dur="4.619">farms you know when he was a little kid escaped from Cuba where he was supposed>

< start="178.019" dur="3.541">to go to the Olympics and he has this whole crazy elaborate story of his life>

< start="181.56" dur="5.94">to get to America to become a Chicago cop be a three-time mr. Olympia to have>

< start="187.5" dur="3.72">a kid the last thing you want your son to do is now do something not through>

< start="191.22" dur="4.049">school so now me being older and me being more mature I can understand that>

< start="195.269" dur="3.901">he went through all that I think he really just wanted me to be it he would>

< start="199.17" dur="3.51">say it all the time doctor lawyer architect he would just name those>

< start="202.68" dur="4.139">things and he was just so crazy about school but I don't think that he ever>

< start="206.819" dur="3.991">realized that I was him and if he would have realized that I am>

< start="210.81" dur="3.33">just like him with a lot of things he would have known that just school wasn't>

< start="214.14" dur="3.65">my thing and it wasn't my dad's either>

< start="221.51" dur="6.28">so I really didn't even pursue bodybuilding until 2006 I started so>

< start="227.79" dur="5.42">late and it literally took me nine or ten years to figure it out>

< start="235.26" dur="10.63">this one lightweight novice second place so that was a hundred and seventy>

< start="245.89" dur="7.349">pounds so that was a hundred pounds from what I was last year so I'm hoping I>

< start="253.239" dur="4.921">gained about eight to ten pounds in the last two years so I would have then>

< start="258.16" dur="3.979">gained a hundred and ten pounds since I started bodybuilding>

< start="262.96" dur="5.91">so this is one of my dad's trophies and this one and this one's so heavy I can't>

< start="268.87" dur="5.07">even pick it up and I swear to God like I can't do it on video or you can't tell>

< start="273.94" dur="6.75">but this trophy is so heavy I'll get I should film you holding it because it makes>

< start="280.69" dur="4.53">no sense but it shows the quality of the trophies back in the day compared to my>

< start="285.22" dur="11.759">Nationals trophy and with the stand with my Tampa and Olympia medals on it is not>

< start="296.979" dur="4.5">even as heavy as this this thing is so heavy but I don't know what it's made>

< start="301.479" dur="5.19">out of friggin marble yeah it's got like the Colosseum on the top like they used>

< start="306.669" dur="6.09">to go all out it's just a completely different game I'm in a race where I'm>

< start="312.759" dur="4.741">being judged by people's opinions and people's opinions can change and>

< start="317.5" dur="3.87">depending on what era you're in the criteria can change and that's the>

< start="321.37" dur="4.32">biggest thing is that in my dad's era they would have they'd be under one>

< start="325.69" dur="6.06">single light a shadow a spotlight it created shadows underneath and casted>

< start="331.75" dur="6.9">these like monumental statue figures and then as bodybuilding grew we started>

< start="338.65" dur="4.949">tearing down the body individually this needs to be this kind of condition this>

< start="343.599" dur="3.81">needs to be this kind of big this is the shape that we're looking for and then as>

< start="347.409" dur="4.411">we've evolved and going through the eras now they want all of it they want>

< start="351.82" dur="3.54">where yeah you have to be proportionally symmetrical but at the same time you>

< start="355.36" dur="4.98">have to be so dry and so peeled in some areas that actually unless you were a>

< start="360.34" dur="3.96">professional bodybuilder you wouldn't know that to have shredded glutes and>

< start="364.3" dur="2.399">hams you're gonna have to lose something else>

< start="366.699" dur="3.9">it's just how science works some of these guys are pushing under 3% body fat>

< start="370.599" dur="4.471">so no matter what once you're pushing that threshold of dying on stage you're>

< start="375.07" dur="4.379">that close to death something's gonna give and take and that's the hard part>

< start="379.449" dur="3.571">of bodybuilding is you have to figure out how shredded do I get without losing>

< start="383.02" dur="4.679">this or vice versa you know how big can I get without losing condition and>

< start="387.699" dur="3.801">that's just not something they had to deal with back in the day>

< start="398.34" dur="4.63">my goal in my career is I want to win the Arnold like that's something I>

< start="402.97" dur="2.58">definitely want to win but I also understand that that's something it>

< start="405.55" dur="3.21">takes time you're not gonna go into the Arnold and beat passed>

< start="408.76" dur="3.09">Arnold champions like they're not all of a sudden gonna now not know how to do>

< start="411.85" dur="6.599">their job this is like this is unbelievable let me tell you do in>

< start="418.449" dur="11.911">Columbus 50 years ago I was posing here with your dad in Columbus Ohio me and my>

< start="430.36" dur="6.09">friends over there we've been we've been driving to this show for a long time>

< start="436.45" dur="4.68">every year I've driven here every year on my own from Chicago in Florida from>

< start="441.13" dur="5.7">North Carolina just to come watch the show and and and it's really for the>

< start="446.83" dur="3.66">real fans and I wanted to say everyone here tonight is a true fan of>

< start="450.49" dur="7.29">bodybuilding with everything that happened this weekend and the catastrophes it>

< start="457.78" dur="2.91">really showed us the difference between the fitness industry and the>

< start="460.69" dur="4.349">bodybuilding industry and we are we are one and we are strong and we will always>

< start="465.039" dur="3.81">take care of each other I don't even think about the Olympia I think about me>

< start="468.849" dur="5.911">going to it this year and being in the top you know six I want to go from last>

< start="474.76" dur="3.839">place to first call and go from last call to first call out but once you>

< start="478.599" dur="2.151">start saying like I want to win the Superbowl>

< start="480.75" dur="4.21">like there's so you gotta win a playoff game there's so many stages>

< start="484.96" dur="5.04">before that and I think that's a big tell when someone's not all there in>

< start="490" dur="3.18">their head when they're already thinking about the Olympia and you haven't even>

< start="493.18" dur="6.209">one tough pro shows or the AFC Championship which is the Arnold you got>

< start="499.389" dur="3.84">to win that first and I'm just trying to do those in stages so my five-year plan>

< start="503.229" dur="4.351">would be to be an Arnold Classic champion I've got my own supplement line and>

< start="507.58" dur="3.75">clothes are doing well and now I'm battling for that top three spot at the>
