Men’s Open Winner Regan Grimes

The Men’s Open competition was highlighted by a rematch between Grimes and Nathan De Asha, who defeated him at the 2023 Flex Weekend Pro one week prior to this contest. Grimes got the better of this matchup, and he is now qualified to compete in the Mr. Olympia as a result.

There is no official word on whether Grimes will shift his focus to the Olympia or if he will try to keep other men out of the Olympia lineup by competing in other shows. Only show winners advance to the Olympia Weekend at this stage of the season. Tim Budesheim rounded out the top three in the Men’s Open division.

212 Bodybuilding Winner Oleh Kryvyi

Oleh Kryvyi was the clear winner in both the prejudging and the finals, and he made short work of the rivals in the 212 division. He will return to the 212 Olympia contest, where he hopes to overtake defending champion Shaun Clarida.

Runner-up Mario Ruz looked better than he ever had in this show, but he was relegated to second place. The bronze medal went to Francisco Barrias Vik of Brazil.

Classic Physique Winner Wesley Vissers

Some fans speculated about whether Wesley Vissers was gambling a chance at the Olympia by making his 2023 debut so late in the season, but he called his shot and made the most of it.

Vissers won the Classic Physique title and has qualified for the Olympia for the fourth straight year. He had all first-place votes on the scorecards, making him the clear winner over Jose Maria Mete Bueriberi, who placed second. German Pastor took third.

Men’s Physique Winner Sidy Pouye

Sidy Pouye was the only men’s champion from the host country. He took the Men’s Physique title, marking his third win of the season. As a result, no Olympia qualification was awarded for this division. That means runner-up Ali Bilal, third-place finisher Adeyemi Awoyemi, and the rest of the lineup will have to find another show to win before the qualifying cutoff date of Oct. 9. 

Women’s Bodybuilding Winner Chelsea Dion

The Women’s Bodybuilding show marked the 2023 debut of Chelsea Dion, and like Vissers, she seized her opportunity and won the contest to qualify for the 2023 Ms. Olympia show. Dion hopes to place higher than her ninth-place finish in 2022.

Viktoria Knysh took silver in this show, which was the highest finish of her three-year career. Third place went to Jacqueline Fuchs of Switzerland.

Women’s Physique Winner – Karina Goncalves

Karina Gonclaves had finished third in this contest in 2022, which was her pro debut. She returned to this stage with the win on her mind, and that is exactly what she got. She is now eligible to make her Women’s Physique Olympia debut thanks to her first career win.

Caroline Alves dos Santos had already qualified for the Olympia thanks to winning the 2023 Mr. Big Evolution Pro show, but she had hoped to keep another competitor out of the Olympia. In spite of the second-place finish, her Olympia qualification is safe.

Figure Winner – Gabriela Linhartova

The Figure division champion was Gabriela Linhartova, who earned her first professional victory. She now joins her twin sister, Tereza, on the list of Figure Olympia athletes. Paula Ranta and Arya Bahar rounded out the top three in this contest.

Bikini Winner – Valerya Fedorenko

Valerya Fedorenko, the only Ukranian competitor in the Bikini division show, took the win in a one-point decision over runner-up Chantal Hill. Lisa Reith rounded out the top three in what was her 10th show of the 2023 season.

Wellness Winner Sandra Colorado Acal

The 2023 Toronto Pro Wellness winner, Sandra Colorado Acal, claimed her second win of the season — and she did it in her home country. The 2023 Wellness Olympia marks her debut on the biggest stage in the sport.  

Thanks to this win, no other Olympia qualification was issued. The second-place finisher was Klaudia Vanessza Csuri, and taking third place was Paula Dominguez Garcia.
