“Wilf Sylvester of England started out the amateur activities by winning the Short Class, (below 5’5″) of the Mr. Universe contest. With perfect proportions he has muscle as compacted as diamonds. It was impossible to find a weak point on him. A veteran with a flawless posing routine, given the grace of a few more pounds, he might one day emerge an over-all winner.”

A post on Wilf’s Facebook page showed a cover of Mirror magazine with a boy whose IQ was reportedly Higher than Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawkin. The post included the comment “Wilf’s clever grandson!” The boy’s name is Ramarni Wilfred. Wilf’s family’s last name is actually Wilfred so Britian’s smartest schoolboy could be his grandson. Although Wilf died in 2006 it appears someone created a Facebook page in his honor.
