Whether you were aware of it or not, history was made at the 2016 Arnold Sports Festival as professional wheelchair bodybuilding was featured for the very first time. Thanks in large part to Nick Scott who has played a huge role in making this a possibility. But don’t for a second think that Nick is attempting to collect all the attention and publicity possible by making this happen as his purpose was to give back to the phenomenal athletes who compete in the wheelchair division, stating “it’s not about me it’s not about them but it’s about giving hope, inspiration, motivation and they are true warriors of the sport…” With Nick Scott and the amazing competitors of the wheelchair division continuously pushing the envelope, there is no telling where the future of wheelchair bodybuilding lies. Leaving many wondering if a feature in the Olympia is a possibility. Only time will tell but I am pretty sure that is definitely something that will take place sooner rather than later.
