How Qualified 2023 Mr. Olympia?

To qualify for Mr. Olympia is a significant achievement and requires specific criteria.
Past champions are qualified for the same division for life. Also, the top five finishers of the Men’s open from the previous year are automatically eligible to compete in the next year.

The line-up for Mr. Olympia 2023 includes some of the well-known and respectable names in the bodybuilding world. Twenty-four bodybuilders qualified for the 2023 Mr. Olympia, but only 21 bodybuilders will step on the stage of the 2023 Mr. Olympia after three of those withdrew due to retirement and other reasons.

Athletes not competing

Three athletes who qualified for the 2023 Mr. Olympia have since withdrawn. Ian Valliere announced his retirement last month; two-time Mr. Olympia Mamdouh Elssbiay bowed out last month to focus on his physique and recovery. Brett Wilkin withdrew from the event due to health issues earlier this month, leaving 21 athletes to take the stage in Orlando.

Top contenders

If Choopan or Curry don’t win the title, we’ll see the 18th Mr. Olympia this time. 212 Olympia Champion in 2021, Derek Lunsford was the runner-up to Choopan in 2022 and is looking to become the first athlete ever to win the competition in two different divisions.

2021 Arnold Class champion and 2022 Mr. Olympia bronze medalist Nick Walker hasn’t been shy about proclaiming himself the next champion. He consistently shares his progress throughout his preparation on YouTube and other social media platforms.

Walker recently participated at the 2023 Arnold Classic, finishing second to Samson Dauda. Traditionally, the Arnold Classic champions are considered a favorite for the Olympia. Dauda ranked sixth at the 2022 Olympia but has improved significantly since then.

Dark horses

Other than the favorites, some have outside shots of winning the prestigious title but more likely have the potential to finish in the top 10, which is also a significant career stride.

Talking about such athletes, former Classic Physique competitor Regan Grimes is one of those. He is one of the smallest men in the lineup despite being huge in other metrics, but has an exceptionally great shape.

Another such athlete, Hassan Mostafa, ranked 13th in the 2021 Olympia. Since then, he has added size and improved his conditioning, and we could see him making it into the top 10.

Charles Griffin displayed his best version of physique at his 2023 Legion Sports Fest win earlier this month and has a chance to finish at respectable positions in Olympia. Also, don’t forget 2023 New York Pro champion Tonio Burton, as the former 212 competitor has added quality size to his body and is an absolute poser.

Olympia debutants

This year, Ross Flanigan, Behrooz Tabani, Justin Shier, Roman Fritz, and Phil Clahar will make their Olympia debuts in Orlando. In the past, we have seen Olympia rookies failing to make the top 15. However, we have also seen debutants like Jacked making it to the top 10 in their debut.
