Jay Cutler’s path in Mr. Olympia
Jay Cutler won the Mr. Olympia title four times in his career, but it was a long path to glory. He participated in his first-ever Mr. Olympia in the 1999 edition and finished in 14th place with 204 points.
The following year, he finished in eighth place. But after the Mr. Olympia competition in 2000, the rise of Jay Cutler in Mr. Olympia started. Jay finished in second place during the 2001 Mr. Olympia. During the 2001 edition, Jay and Ronnie Coleman went toe-to-toe against each other. But Ronnie Coleman was victorious in the end.
Jay finally made a breakthrough in his quest for a Mr. Olympia title during the 2006 edition of Mr. Olympia, where he clinched victory by defeating the eight-time Mr. Olympia title winner Ronnie Coleman. He clinched his second Mr. Olympia title in 2007. However, he was defeated by Dexter Jackson during the 2008 Mr. Olympia competition and finished in second place.
While many felt this was the end of Jay Cutler, it was not easy to win Mr. Olympia title after tasting defeat as a reigning champion. Only a few bodybuilders have been successful in winning the title in non-consecutive years.
But Cutler made a tremendous comeback by winning the Mr. Olympia in 2009. Only Arnold Schwarzenegger and Franco Columbu have won the Mr. Olympia in non-consecutive years before Jay joined the list in 2009.
He again won the Mr. Olympia in 2010 before finishing in the second and sixth positions in the 2011 and 2013 editions of Mr. Olympia. Cutler’s determination to keep going until reaching his goal is truly an inspiration for bodybuilders and people from all walks of life.
