Charles Griffen has remained active this year, and already notched an impressive performance at the 2022 Indy Pro earlier this month. The Men’s Open competitor walked away in second place, behind champion Blessing Awodibu. With redemption on his mind, Griffen wanted to close the gap between himself and the rest of his competition, once and for all.
Mohamed Shaaban is an exceptional talent entering the contest. A back injury forced him to pull out of the Arnold Classic in 2022. The 2021 Mr. Olympia was his last outing, where he finished 10th overall.
