Brandon has spent the majority of his time as a pro training in Kuwait with his coach and the Camel Crew at Oxygen Gyms. This strategy of leaving his home country for months at a time over heading out west to the MECCA of Golds Gym Venice Beach or the East coast MECCA of Bev’s New York based Powerhouse Gym has paid dividends for his growth and success as an athlete.
Not satisfied to rest and recover like many athletes do after such a monumental accomplishments in his career, Brandon re-committed his efforts to ultimately improve on his 2018 5th place finish by “Doubling Down” his commitment to move up in the Olympia Line-up!
As a father of 4, Brandon has a lot to juggle between his gym training, fatherly obligations, global traveling and his marriage to former Bikini Pro, Brandy Leaver in the run up to the biggest contest in the world! Improving his physique under such heavy responsibilities is a pressure cooker and liability that many of his challengers don’t have to navigate making his job to try and become number one that much harder!!!
2019 was a year that all the stars lined up just so, the universe was in alignment with Gods Plan for the Curry Family so much so that along the way to winning the 55th Mr. Olympia Title, the Curry’s found time to create baby number 5 which was recently announced in Brandy’s home state of Hawaii at the Shawn Ray Hawaiian Classic November 23rd and should arrive sometime in 2020 as Brandon prepares to defend his championship in September!
Winning the Mr. Olympia title is something only 15 men in 55 years have been able to do which for me automatically qualifies Brandon as Bodybuilder of the Year!
Congratulations to the Prodigy, To whom much is given, much is required.
We salute your accomplishment of become 2019 Worlds Best Bodybuilder effectively sealing your legacy in the annuals of history.
