Lunsford placed fourth in 2020, second in 2019, second in 2018 and fifth in 2017.

"I'm grateful beyond be- lief to be the 212 Mr. Olym- pia. I want to honor and cher- ish this title. And I won't let it change who I am or my core values, especially as a follower of Christ. I will not take it for granted either. It's important that I find a balance of excite- ment with appreciation and us- ing this opportunity to grow as a professional," said Lunsford.
