The world of bodybuilding, and particularly the team here at Muscle & Fitness, was saddened to hear of legendary bodybuilder Sergio "The Myth" Oliva's passing from kidney failure at the age of 71. 

So we'd like to celebrate the man, the myth, the legend and his Mr. Olympia run. After all, it was the competition that made him the undisputed king of bodybuilding from 1967-1969, not to mention his exciting return in 1984 where he gave us a preview of the next myth, his infant son Sergio Oliva Jr. 

He continued to be an inspiration to all fitness buffs until his death on November 12, and instead of mourning his loss, we should all celebrate his life and what he did for bodybuilding.
