Classic Physique Winner — Mike Sommerfeld
Sommerfeld was coming off an eighth-place finish at the 2023 Classic Physique Olympia. That means he had to win a pro show to qualify for the 2024 Olympia in Las Vegas, NV, on Oct. 10-13, 2024. His third career pro show victory came in the form of unanimous first-place votes in this single-round contest.
This win qualified Sommerfeld for the Olympia for the fourth consecutive year. Jean Carlos Guerrero represented the host country well with a silver-medal performance, and Carlos Daniel Gonzalez Iglesias rounded out the top three.
Wellness Winner — Sandra Colorado Acal
This pro show originally had three Wellness contestants on the roster, but three additional late entries made the trip to South America. One of those was Acal, whose experience and superb conditioning led her to an easy win in this event. She scored a third-place finish in the 2023 Romania Muscle Fest Pro one week prior to this contest, as well as an eighth-place overall rank at the 2023 Wellness Olympia. This win locks her in for the 2024 Olympia.
