It’s hard to believe that prior to 2019, Brandon Curry was seen as a bodybuilding journeyman. The 2008 NPC USA Overall champion had a few pro wins up to that point, most notably the 2013 Arnold Classic South America. But, he was never perceived to be among the elite of the sport. Curry was even famously asked at the 2016 Olympia press conference if he would consider moving to the 212. He had become an afterthought when it came to the biggest show in the sport, and he actually finished out of the top 15 in that contest. Two years later, he was able to place fifth at the 2018 Olympia, and even then, some experts and people in bodybuilding thought that was a nice cap to what they considered a respectable career.
