 DEXTER JACKSON added beef, retained some of his razor sharpness and walked into the record books with a fifth Arnold Classic triumph in Columbus, Ohio, over the weekend.

Jackson, 45, who had previous wins in 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2013, was awarded US$130 000 after scooping his fifth title at the Columbus Convention Centre. He broke the record that was held by the great Ken “Flex” Wheeler.

Texas titan Branch Warren collected US$75 000 for achieving second place, while 26-year-old Justin Compton took $50 000 for securing third spot.

Warren brought his signature grainy conditioning and posing energy, but Jackson, had a better combination of size and conditioning along with a superior shape and proportions.

Jackson, who guest-posed in Barbados last October, was an emphatic winner on the scoresheets.
