Lenda Murray

Lenda Murray was the first female body builder to win the MS.Olympia contest eight times. She was born in Detroit Michigan in 1962. During high school she participated in track and field and was also a varsity cheerleader. She was a graduate of Western Michigan University majoring in political science. She continued to perform cheer leading with the Michigan Panthers, but the real turning point came in 1984. She joined a gym and enjoyed weight lifting. After realizing her body responded well to it she entered her first competition in 1985. She gradually moved up the ranks earning her pro-card in the 1989 IFFB North American Championships. She would later dominate the 1990s with numerous Ms.Olympia wins. She won the 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 2002 and 2003 Ms.Olympia. Her body is the standard in which female bodybuilders are judged. Large upper and lower body forming a small waist is the physique model. She retired  from competition in 2004. Iris Kyle would break her record with ten wins of the MS.Olympia contest.
