On the Sugdenbarbell site in the UK, there are a surprising number of very highly educated powerlifters: DocD (who also posts on IronAddicts) is a university bod, specialising - I believe - in early literature (e.g. Anglo-Saxon); Rick has a PhD in Maths and a stunning general education; Ian Kendrick has/is completing a PhD in muscle physiology/ergogenic effects of carnitine; another guy is a surgeon; someone has a PhD in mycology - and so on.

Personally, I've never found anyone makes negative assumptions about intelligence. Perhaps either (a) I'm not buff enough to warrant the prejudice or (b) they just don't say it to my face.
