Shawn Ray was born on September 9, 1965 in Placentia, California, U.S.A. Shawn is an exceptionally genetically gifted bodybuilder who after entering over 30 professional bodybuilding competitions has only not placed in the top five once. He has been placed in the top 5 of every professional bodybuilding contest he entered for 12 consecutive years.
Shawn got his Pro-card in 1988 and to date is the only bodybuilder in the history of the sport to be featured so many times on the cover of Flex magazine. His fans gave him the nickname of ‘the giant killer’ because he has beaten every top bodybuilder in his class at some time or another in his 20 years competing as a professional bodybuilder.
It is very unfortunate that such a genetically gifted body has never managed to win the coveted Mr.Olympia title. Although Shaun officially retired from professional bodybuilding in 2001 he is still very active in the bodybuilding community holding seminars and often featured as the Master of Ceremonies at many Mr.Olympia contests.
Shawn is also the creator of what is today the only charity fundraiser specifically for professional bodybuilding called the Shawn Ray's CHOC Hospital Golf Invitational. Shawn has also featured in 6 different video documentaries from ‘Lifestyles of the Fit & Famous’ to a documentary on what it takes to prepare for the Mr.Olympia competition called ‘The Final Countdown.’
Since Shawn retired from professional bodybuilding he has been working for a shaker manufacturer company that is based in Sweden called SmartShake. Since he retired Shawn has got married and had two beautiful daughters where he lives in Orange County California.
