The 2020 Mr. Olympia took place this weekend, as the top bodybuilders in the world came out to Orlando, Florida to prove themselves to be the best in the world. This is the full results from the entire competition, after everyone finished taking the stage.
While most years the Mr. Olympia goes down in the fall, the current situation in the world forced the event to be moved to December. As if that was not enough for the officials to deal with, with just about six weeks to go until the show, they had to move it across the country, from its normal home in Las Vegas, to Orlando. Nevertheless the contest rolled on, and virtually all of the top bodybuilders in the world showed up to prove that this year would not be holding them down.
The bulk of the 2020 Mr. Olympia took place on Friday and Saturday, with the final results taking place Saturday evening. After two long days of competition, we have some new champions and some others defending their thrones. These are the results from the entire weekend’s competition.

The 212 Division of the 2020 Mr. Olympia was filed with a lot of intriguing matchups.

During Friday’s prejudging, it was clear that Kamal was in great shape, but so was the rest of the competition. In the end, it was Shaun Clarida who ascended to the next level and dethroned the champ to become the 212 Olympia champ.

The Fitness Division is always one of the most fun to watch at the Olympia. A big part of the judging for this division comes down to the aerobics routine that the ladies perform, as opposed to just posing.
