Morteza Siahkali-Moradi, also known as Big Mori, won the Mr. Universe 2018 Thailand championship in three separate categories: Body Physique, Body Classic, and Muscle Model. After his first year, Big Mori became an even more successful bodybuilder by having his flight to Kuwait and participation in the 2019 Middle East Championship sponsored. This brought him two medals, a silver and a bronze, after competing in the Bermuda Beach Model and Bodybuilding Model divisions.
As Big Mori was preparing for his most recent competition, he was in the process of picking out a stage song to walk out to, when he came to the conclusion that the new music in today’s world just isn’t what it used to be. After he had finished his competitions and had time off from his bodybuilding career, he decided to create music that the Persian music industry wasn’t ready for. His music shocked the Iranian people because they never thought a bodybuilder could make good music! In the beginning of his music career he had faced a lot of problems, doubts and concerns, which would have cracked a lot of other people and stop them from pursuing what they want to but Big Mori’s championship experience has taught him that the best reaction to hate-filled critics is to go along your own path with more diligence and professional expertise.
The haters gave him so much motivation he utilized it to write a book with the title “On the Path to Champion”, simultaneously while also managing his new position in the bodybuilding world, as the President of WABBA International Federation in Iran.
In a world filled with hate, addiction and negativity amongst other things, Big Mori, a Bodybuilder, Artist, Author and Leader all at the age of 24, inspires the young generation to pursue anything they want in life, because he knows from experience they will be successful. “Be your own hero” a phrase Big Mori lives by proves to the world that you can do anything you set your mind to.
