Larry Pacifico (born January 17, 1946) is an American former world champion powerlifter.[5]

Larry won nine straight IPF World Powerlifting Championships from 1971–1979.[6] Larry won a total of 102 competitions and set 54 World Records during his powerlifting career.[7]

Larry is widely regarded as one of the greatest powerlifters of all time, and goes by the nickname "Mr. Powerlifting".[8]

3 time World's Strongest Man winner and 2 time IPF world champion Bill Kazmaier once stated, "The first time I went to a powerlifting meet and saw Larry, I think he was probably six or seven on his World Championships and he was pretty much-how would you say?-a god in powerlifting. He could go to any class that he wanted to. He could pretty much lift whatever weight on the day he wanted to."[9] 4 time IPF powerlifting champion and 1979 World's Strongest Man winner Don Reinhoudt said of Larry, "I look at Larry, an idol to all of us here-nine time champion and Larry will always be the legend of all time to us."[10]

Larry was inducted into the York Barbell Hall of Fame on June 28, 1998.[11] Larry currently owns his own gym and is a personal trainer in Dayton, Ohio.[12]
