2022 DC Pro-Am Results
One name that stood out to many pre-contest was Vitor Chaves. His last season in 2021 saw ups and downs, starting with a solid first-place performance at the 2021 Worldwide Amateur Olympia Brazil. While he was unable to reach the podium at the 2021 Musclecontest Brazil Pro, earning tenth place, he more than made up for it with an improved look this weekend.
Another standout heading into the 2022 DC Pro-Am show was Montae Bailey. Bailey competed at the 2021 Chicago Pro last year against a stacked lineup of talent. Despite earning ninth place, Bailey showed impressive improvements in his physique this weekend. After a heated battle on stage, Vitor Chaves walked away victorious, earning his invitation to compete at 2022 Mr. Olympia later this year.

Heading into the contest, many imagined that Eli Fernandez would be eager to turn in a statement-making performance. She had a busy season in the sport last year, competing at a total of seven IFBB Pro League shows. She is the returning champion this weekend after winning the 2021 DC Pro last June. Fernandez was also impressed at the 2021 Minneapolis Pro last year where she came in third. After the active season, she capped off the year at 2021 Mr. Olympia, a show which saw her place in fifth. She also took part in the 2022 Boston Pro, earning third place, respectively.
Meanwhile, Sierra Swann also attracted a lot of hype pre-show. The Bikini competitor has already taken part in a handful of IFBB Pro League shows this year. After failing to reach the podium at the 2022 Charlotte Pro (eighth place) and with a fifth-place performance at the 2022 GRL PWR Pro, Swann was out looking for redemption. She recently won the California Night of Champions and the Miami Muscle Beach Pro this year. In the end, Eli Fernandez kept her momentum with a signature victory at the 2022 DC Pro-Am show, earning her invitation to compete at the 2022 Mr. Olympia.
