The IFBB is back this weekend with another major bodybuilding event. The 2022 Rising Phoenix Arizona went down on November 5, 2022, Phoenix, Arizona. Competitors from the Bikini, Women’s Bodybuilding, Figure, Fitness, Women’s Physique, and Wellness categories pushed each other in hopes of earning an invite to bodybuilding’s most important event of the year — 2022 Mr. Olympia.
The 2022 Rising Phoenix-Arizona Pro is in the record books now, and Andrea Shaw has won the Women’s Bodybuilding title for the third consecutive year.
This year’s 2022 Olympia and Ms. Olympia contest will start on December 15 and run until December 18. A number of athletes have qualified for the event, however, there is still time for other competitors to earn their right to compete at Olympia, which is slated to go down inside the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
Important bodybuilding icons like four-time Olympia winner Jay Cutler have suggested that this might be the greatest Olympia contest in the show’s rich history. Athletes have until November 20, 2022, to ensure they qualify for the contest.
