With this years Olympia in the books, we want to give you a look at who won for each division. Without further ado, here are the winners for each division:
This year's Mr. Olympia came down to a battle between last year's winner Hadi Choopan and his Evogen team member Derek Lunsford. With both men utilizing Hany Rambod as their coach, they came in looking massive and detailed. Lunsford did edge Hadi out by 5 points, resulting in Lunsford becoming the first Olympia competitor to win gold in the 212 division and then the Open division.
With two-time 212 Olympia winner Shaun Clarida a favorite in this contest, challenger Keone Pearson needed to bring the complete package to have a shot at winning. And that is exactly what he did. Pearson brought size, definition, and showmanship to capture his first 212 Olympia title.
One of the highest anticipated events of the Olympia weekend was seeing if Chris Bumstead could pull out his fifth Olympia win. With so many competitors nipping on his heels, CBum needed to bring his absolute best. Ramon "Dino" Queiroz brought a physique that had even the most diehard CBum fans nervous. Ultimately Bumstead was able to make history and take home his fifth title.
The lead-up to the Men's Physique competition was the subject of a lot of excitement over the past couple of months. With some smack-talking between Erin Banks and Brandon Hendrickson, and the return of Men's Physique Olympia winner Jeremy Buendia, this competition has had quite a buzz around it. Ultimately fan-favorite Ryan Terry took the Olympia crown.
With this being the fourth year of the Ms. Olympia competition, and Andrea Shaw winning the past three years, she was the obvious favorite to take home the title. Although Angela Yeo had an impressive showing, it wasn't enough to unseat the champ.
Cydney Gillon was the clear favorite to win the Figure Olympia, given her dominance over the division the past several years. While she did have some stiff competition from Jessica Reyes Padilla and Lola Montez, Gillon took home her seventh title.
Looking to return to the top of the podium, Sarah Villegas came back with a vengeance to beat out Natalia Abraham Coelho and claim her third Olympia title.
After missing last year's Olympia, Oksana Grishina was determined to make a splash on the stage this year, and that's exactly what she did. Grishina took the crown, while runner-up Taylor Learmont made a huge impact in the division by lacing so high in her Olympia debut.
Jennifer Dorie was looking to make a comeback and reclaim her title after losing last year to Maureen Blanquisco. It looked like it could have been a repeat of last year with the same top three in the mix, but Dorie was able to come away witht he victory this year.
The absolute closest of any of the divisions. The winner was determined by one point! Francielle Matos and Isabelle Nunes brought amazing physiques to the stage, but ultimately, Matos walked away the winner.
With Harold Kelley the favorite coming into this year, nobody was expecting someone to come in and dethrone the champ. Karol Milewski had other plans, becoming only the second person to receive the Men's Pro Wheelchair Olympia title.
