Victor Richards (Victor Richards) has been a great athlete since he was a child. During his school years, he had achieved success in football, track and field and wrestling. However, it was the world of bodybuilding that inspired him from an early age.
Inspired by the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sergio Oliva, Victor began to lift weights and grew into the huge physique he was eventually known for.
