Was Sean Connery ever in the Mr. Universe contest?
Sean Connery, a renowned Scottish superstar, used to be quite successful in bodybuilding. He began training seriously at the age of 18, when he left Britain's Royal Navy due to a stomach ulcer. Connery was in Mr. Universe contest, although the year he competed is up for debate. In one of his interviews Connery himself said he took part in a 1955 competition, while his official website claims he was third in the 1950 Mr. Universe contest. At the same time, many sources place him in the 1953 competition.
