The Rollercoaster Journey of Calum Von Moger
Before heading back to Australia, Calum Von Moger was in the process of entering the IFBB Pro league for Classic Physique. He earned his pro card in 2020 but has yet to compete in a pro bodybuilding show. This came after Calum Von Moger went through a prolonged recovery from a serious bicep tear that nearly ended his bodybuilding career.
The entire journey of his recovery and return to competitive bodybuilding was chronicled in the documentary feature film Calum Von Moger: Unbroken.
Before entering the competitive space, Calum Von Moger was known for his impressive classic physique that resembled Arnold Schwarzenegger. This earned him the nickname Arnold 2.0. His videos went viral online alongside his adventurous lifestyle. The attention eventually earned him a small part in the film Bigger, where he played a young Arnold Schwarzenegger.
This story is still developing. Generation Iron will provide updates as soon as they become available. Generation Iron would also like to send well wishes, thoughts, and prayers for Calum Von Moger, family, and friends during this difficult time.
