Lee Haney weights in on the battle of 8x Mr. Olympia champions.
Every week, Iron Cinema will connect you with Generation Iron director Vlad Yudin. Giving you unprecedented inside access to the creative process behind his the Generation Iron Fitness Network. Get a first hand look at the entire journey of taking Vlad’s creative ideas to the big screen – from stories on set of films like Generation Iron and CT Fletcher all the way to exclusive behind-the-scene looks at our newest GI news and films. This week Vlad talks with 8x undefeated Olympia champion Lee Haney about his legacy and why the bodybuilding world seems to place Ronnie Coleman above Haney.
One of the things I find the most fascinating about Lee Haney is that modern bodybuilding fans rarely talk about him with the same excitement and esteem as they do Ronnie Coleman. Both are 8x Mr. Olympia champions. In fact, Lee Haney holds the distinction over Ronnie that he’s never been defeated. Instead he retired on a high note and when he knew he was ready. In my latest Iron Cinema interview, I sit down with Lee Haney himself to pick his brain about his bodybuilding career. Watch it above.
