Profile

Initially a high school and later a college baseball star, Troy always had a love for weight training that dated back to his sophomore year of high school. While on a full scholarship at an Arizona community college for baseball, Alves injured himself while weight training. His career in baseball was seriously jeopardized, prompting Alves to quit college and join the United States Airforce. Having a child at the time was one of the major reasons for doing so. After being told he should pursue bodybuilding, Alves broke into his first show in 1996 when he competed in the NPC (National Physique Committee) USA Championships, where he placed 8th. His first IFBB competition was the Arnold Classic of 2003, where he placed 10th. His first Mr. Olympia came in 2004, where he placed 15th. Alves is known for his balanced body. He has been featured in many fitness articles and has appeared on the cover of FLEX magazine. Today he lives with his Wife and his 19 year old daughter in Arizona, USA where he owns his own supplement store. He is a childhood friend of actor Michael Jai White.
