Big Ramy has been a long representative of Egypt and has not forgotten about where he comes from after his success. Because of this, his hometown has decided to honor him and they will do so for many reasons.


Not only will there be a square named after him but Big Ramy will have the biggest square in the city named after him. It goes without saying that Big Ramy has seen plenty of success on stage but he has also been a role model for many in Egypt.

“Big Ramy has been highlighted as an example for Egypt’s youth, his persistence and determination leading him to global fame in bodybuilding. Born in Kafr El Sheikh in 1984, he started his professional career in 2010, before going on to win a number of international bodybuilding competitions before reaching the zenith of his career, being crowned Mr. Olympia – first in 2020, then again this year.”

Big Ramy has now competed in eight Olympia competitions. It took him six to reach the pinnacle and now that he is there, he will be difficult to defeat. Prior to the 2020 Olympia, Big Ramy began working with Dennis James. The two built a physique that was up to championship level. They got together once again leading up to the 2021 competition and this was a roaring success.

Big Ramy has taken his performance to the next level and that is only going to continue. He is a mass monster that enters with great conditioning every time he steps on stage. The work that Big Ramy has been able to do has gained worldwide recognition and it is well-deserved.
