Arnold Schwarzenegger is not just a well-known actor and a former governor of California; he also has a distinguished bodybuilding career and is regarded as one of the industry’s pioneers.
Arnold was born on July 30, 1947, close to the Austrian city of Graz. He was conscious of his appearance when he was a youngster, which is why he initially intended to try himself in the bodybuilding industry. Because this sport took him far and really aided his career, this decision proved to be the best one he could have ever made.
Arnold received five Mr. Universe titles and seven Mr. Olympia titles. Despite these accolades, his body and acting skills helped him get the role of the Terminator, one of the most recognizable characters in movie history.
But Arnold wasn’t acting alone when he set out to make bodybuilding a spectator sport in the US. Jim Lorimer, a longtime friend, shared Arnold’s dream, and the two worked together to accomplish amazing things. They co-founded the Arnold Classic, a renowned bodybuilding competition, among other things.
Sadly, Lorimer passed away on November 24, 2022. He was also a mayor, an FBI agent, and a national track coach. He was 96.
Arnold expressed his sorrow over the loss of a close friend on Instagram, writing, “I am devastated that I won’t be able to sit with him again and hear his wisdom, or analyze bodybuilders with him, or simply laugh and laugh.”
Others left numerous comments on Arnold’s article. Among them were well-known figures in the bodybuilding industry.
“Sad news. R.I.P.” I’m very happy we connected during the event. Jay Cutler penned, “Jim, rest in peace.
“That tribute is felt from the bones all the way through the heart and spirit. What a strong remark that is also entirely accurate. We send our condolences to his family and friends. Rest in peace, Jim,” a second person chimed in.
“Life is an amazing adventure! It passes by swiftly! The remaining remarks were “I’m sorry for your loss,” and “Let us cherish and thrill our loved ones right now.”
We share your sorrow over Lorimer’s loss.
A legend in the sport of bodybuilding has passed away. Peace be upon him.
