Menís Open Favorites to Watch
Of the nine men competing, here are three that stand out as potential front-runners.

Stan de Longeaux
ďStanimalĒ is a former Classic Physique competitor that has moved up to the Open in 2019. Heís competed in two shows as a part of his current division. He placed sixth at the 2019 Yamamoto Cup, and he placed 7th at the 2021 Legion Sports Fest. He reported on Instagram that he will be five to 10 pounds heavier in Toronto.


de Longeaux has a great lower body, and his back looks detailed. Heís dedicated his performance at this contest to the memory of the late Shawn Rhoden.

Joel Thomas
Thomasí only appearance in 2021 was at the Tampa Pro, where he placed seventh. He had great symmetry in that contest, but he appeared to be holding water, which affected his definition. He is looking for his first pro win as well as his first trip to the Olympia, and this may be his best chance. His best body part could be his arms. His biceps have great peaks, and his triceps are very dense.

Quinton Eriya
At 6í1Ē, Eriya will be one of the tallest men in the show. He placed fifth in this contest two years ago. He was fifth at the 2021 Romania Muscle Fest Pro, and that look was considered among his best to date. He has nice proportions and a small waist. His smaller joints make him look even better. He displays great separation in his lower body, which could be his ticket to victory.

Other Divisionsí Lineups
Three other menís divisions and all six womenís divisions will be featured at the Toronto Pro. According to the Olympia Qualifying Series, non-winners will earn Tier 2 points, which can really affect the leaderboards by the end of the weekend.
