Danny Padilla
(born April 3, 1951) is an American bodybuilder nicknamed "The Giant Killer" because of his short stature and amazing abilitly to defeat much taller competitors. Padilla started training when he was seven years old in Rochester, New York. He had been watching his older brother and cousin lift weights together in order to become stronger for their wrestling competitions. He acquired some rusty York barbell, as a hand-me-down from his brother Ray, and quickly set about to become Mr. America. It wasn?t long before He was absolutely smitten with the iron game and training a full seven days a
week. By the time Danny was eighteen, he was ready to compete. He won the Mr. Rochester in 1970 while still in high school. It was his first show and he took home the first place trophy. The only question in Padilla's mind after that was,?When is the next show?? He entered a lot of other smaller competitions in the upstate New York area - Mr. Buffalo, Mr. Syracuse, etc. After establishing himself in the local arena, He progressed to participating in both the Junior Mr. America and the Mr. America contests. He finished in the top-twenty of both competitions.
