The 2022 Indy Pro, one of the biggest bodybuilding shows of the year, just wrapped up over the weekend. On Saturday, May 14th, top athletes came to the Indiana Convention Center to compete for a spot at the 2022 Olympia. The featured divisions were Men’s 212, Men’s Open, and Women’s Bodybuilding. Let’s take a look at the results of the 2022 Indy Pro below!
Last weekend we saw the 2022 Pittsburgh Pro take place, where some big winners emerged. This weekend at the 2022 Indy Pro had a similar vibe in impacting the sport. This weekend, the three big winners were Blessing Awodibu in the Men’s Open, Bryan Balzano in Men’s 212, and Theresa Ivancik in Women’s Bodybuilding.
Blessing Awodibu looked unbeatable from the beginning of the show. His plan worked to perfection as he took a long break from competition to put on the necessary size to be a top contender.
Last year Awodibu placed 3rd at this same event, so he’s definitely made vast improvements to his physique. Many thought that Justin Rodriguez would give Blessing a run for his money after his performance at the 2022 Arnold Classic and then his second place finish in the 2022 Boston Pro, but it was Charles Griffen who came the closest to the top.
Bryan Balzano’s triumphant win is almost one of a movie. After having some serious health scares and multiple years away from the sport, Balzano managed to work his way back up by placing fourth in the 2021 Indy Pro. So, this win is a massive accomplishment as many never thought he'd be able to make it to the Olympia.
Theresa Ivanick is back with this win in Women’s Bodybuilding. Last year she competed in Women’s Physique at the 2021 Chicago Pro, where she placed 7th. So we think she made the right decision to come back to the Bodybuilding division. Although there were only five competitors in this division, Ivanick led the pack from the beginning.
SET FOR SET congratulates all the athletes who competed at the 2022 Indy Pro. The season is almost halfway over, but the three winners still have plenty of time to prepare for the 2022 Olympia that’s set to take place from December 16-18 in Las Vegas. We can’t wait to see what they bring to the stage.
