One chapter closes, another one begins. With his days of dominating the Olympia stage behind him, eight-time Mr. O Ronnie Coleman recently began another stage of his life by marrying Rouaida Christine Achkar. A personal trainer, Ackhakr was born in Lebanon on July 29, 1974 and raised in Paris, France. Coleman met his new bride in Paris –- ah, l'amour -- on March 22, 1998, at a Paris Sports exposition. Achkar is currently working towards a degree in sports medicine at the University of Texas at Arlington.

The wedding date was December 28, 2007. According to Coleman, "the big party will be held in Lebanon," on July 26, 2008.

Please join us in wishing the couple a long and happy life together.
