The 45th anniversary of bodybuilding's greatest event — the 2010 Mr. Olympia — is less than two weeks away! Before Phil Heath, Kai Greene, Jay Cutler, Dennis James, Branch Warren, Dennis Wolf and the rest of the superstars of the IFBB Pro League vie for O supremacy, we thought it'd be a fitting time to pay homage to some of the greatest photos from past Olympias.

Keep in mind that although each photo may not represent the year in which an athlete reached his or her peak of development, it was picked for its artistry and how it reveals the character, as well as the physique, of the competitor. For a 96-page blowout of the 2010 Mr. Olympia, head to newsstands and pick up the current issue of FLEX.
