Sergio Oliva Jr. Set to Return to Action at the 2020 Arnold Classic

Sergio Oliva Jr. is ready to make a comeback.

The name Sergio Oliva is synonymous with bodybuilding royalty. The three-time Mr. Olympia champion has reached legendary status in the bodybuilding community. Oliva dominated the bodybuilding scene, even defeating all-time great Arnold Schwarzenegger in the past.

Now the legacy of the great Olympia champion has passed on to his son, Sergio Oliva Jr., a bodybuilder with immense potential and looking to step out of his father’s shadow and cement himself as a truly great bodybuilding champion in his own right.

With a number of impressive performances under his belt already, Sergio Oliva Jr. is looking for a marquee win he can hang his hat on. He may just get that opportunity with his next show.

Sergio Oliva Jr. will be competing at the 2020 Arnold Classic.

The announcement of the announcement of announcing the beginning of prep. I hate when people have to announce they are starting prep. It’s your job. That’s like a non bodybuilder letting you know everytime they’re going to work. But what I also hate more is people in my comments asking what show I’m doing over and over. So as of today I got word I have officially been accepted into the 2020 Arnold Classic. I’ve gone to this show every year since when it was back at the veterans memorial. The venue my father and Arnold went against each other in. I wanted to wait til I was good enough to honor the return of the Oliva/Schwarzenegger names being together again and 2020 is that time. #ArnoldClassic
