Mohamed Makkawy


Canadian IFBB Pro Mohamed El Makkawy used shape and symmetry to destroy all competitors in his way! Makkawy won Mr. Egypt in 1969, the 1972, 1974 and 1976 Mr. Mediterranean and the short class at the Mr. Universe in 1976.

He turned pro in 1977 by winning the Mr. Universe. He then relocated to Toronto where he currently lives. At the World Pro Championships in 1983, Makkawy won his third consecutive IFBB show, while Lee Haney placed third in his pro debut that same year. Makkawy would place ahead of Haney in five of their eight encounters in 1983 but in 1984 and 1985, Haney defeated Makkawy at the Olympia. Over his career, Mohamed Makkawy won 7 IFBB Pro shows which is the most that any Canadian has ever won! In 1999 after doing the Night Of The Champions, he retired from competitive bodybuilding to start a personal training studio in Toronto where he still resides.
