Mirco Burger became the first German honored laurel wreath in a pro class at Natural Olympia. 

Mirco Burger was honored as the first-ever German natural bodybuilder with a first-place medal in a pro division at the Natural Olympia on Saturday, November 13, 2021. He expressed his feelings towards winning on social media stating:

All good things come in threes. 

The third attempt and the most formidable challenge of my life as an athlete were rewarded with gold and secured the last and most highly endowed title in the collection, which I had set as a 10-year goal in 2018.

Even after a sleepless night, it is hard to believe that the impossible became possible and that the 1st German ever was honored with the laurel wreath in a pro class at the Natural Olympia.

Below is his post about it.

As the adage goes, the third time was, in fact, the charm for Mirco Burger at the Golden Nugget Las Vegas Hotel & Casino Saturday night for his third appearance at 2021 Natural Olympia. Burger credits his success to believing in himself and having a much deeper meaning for winning than for medals and prize money. 

Although 2021 Natural Olympia was the first time Burger secured first place in a pro class at the most significant event in natural building of the year, he’s no rookie when it comes to collecting gold in other salient competitions. Before 2021 Natural Olympia, Burger had already received titles, including a 4-times German champion plus overall, Mr. Universe 2019, and World & European champion. 

Natural Bodybuilding

Mirco Burger is an avid supporter of natural bodybuilding. In an Instagram post on December 10, 2020, Burger expressed that he feels fitter and more productive than ever at the age of 44, and it’s a motivation for him to continue competing in natural bodybuilding. Below he’s holding a natural bodybuilding book in an Instagram post.

Natural bodybuilding doesn’t get as many eyes as the International Federation of Bodybuilding (IFBB). Still, it does follow a strict protocol for competing to make competition fair and protect athletes. Each athlete must undergo drug testing by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), the highest quality drug testing for professional sports.
