The 2023 BODYBE1 Classic Pro took place on June 17 and saw a number of Fitness and Men’s Physique competitors vie for gold in Montgomery, Alabama. This show was a 2023 Mr. Olympia qualifying event.
Athletes have until October 9 to guarantee their spot on the Mr. Olympia stage. The multi-day bodybuilding weekend will kick off from Nov. 2-5 in Orlando Florida, inside the Orange County Convention Center.
Unlike previous seasons, there are fewer months to qualify, which also means there are fewer pro shows available for athletes to win. Whoever emerges victorious this weekend from the Men’s Physique category will get a shot at the reigning champ Erin Banks. Meanwhile, the Fitness athlete who earns gold this weekend will face off with Fitness Olympia Missy Truscott.
Mehdi Kabbadj enters this contest with considerable momentum, as he’s already guaranteed his Mr. Olympia invite on the back of his 2023 Toronto Pro Supershow victory. In his way is Drew Cullen, who has competed twice this year. He took runner-up at the Palmetto Classic Pro and third at the Mile High Pro. Additionally, Juan Manuel Gochez is determined to pick up a win. The best finish of his three shows this year was third at the 2023 DC Pro.
