Rich Gaspari won his first competition in 1983. Nicknamed “The Dragon Slayer,” Gaspari’s competitors feared and admired his revolutionary conditioning and unusual build. Over the next 13 years, he won nine IFBB contests and was runner-up in four Mr. Olympia competitions. In 1989, Gaspari won the first Arnold Classic—formerly known as the Pro World Championship. This was his last IFBB win. Gaspari retired from the sport in 1996.
Today, he operates his own line of nutrition supplements under the name Gaspari Nutrition. His continued passion for the sport has inspired him to develop one of the most popular and effective sports nutrition brands of the day.
