Despite a precautionary trip to the hospital the night before lifting, Gainesville’s Tim Moon locked out on 755 pounds in the bench press to win his fourth master’s division Mr. Olympia title Friday in Las Vegas.
Moon’s trip to a local medical center was called for after his driver came to a stop in traffic and was rear ended on Thursday.
Medical tests showed no broken bones and he was released at 2 a.m. the day of the meet.
Once the meet began, Moon was locked in. He was successful on his first attempt at 733 pounds, then hit 755 on his second try. Moon missed on his third attempt at 810.
Weighing 299 pounds, Moon also garnered best-lifter honors.
“I’m blessed to say I won my fourth Mr. Olympia (308-pound weight class) in a row,” said Moon.
