The 2023 Kazakhstan Invictus Pro took place on November 25 in Astana, Kazakhstan, where competitors from the Classic Physique and Figure divisions battled for supremacy. This show was a 2024 Mr. Olympia qualifier for next season’s calendar.
The highly anticipated 2024 Mr. Olympia show will return to Las Vegas, Nevada, and the festivities will occur from October 10-13. With that in mind, competitors have already mapped out their plans to clinch a qualification for the sport’s greatest showcase.
Just a few weeks ago, the 2023 Mr. Olympia Weekend wrapped up with Chris Bumstead emerging as the five-time Classic Physique Olympia. He accomplished this feat despite suffering a lat tear during preparations. Meanwhile, in Figure, Cydney Gillon dominated en route to her seventh title. Both winners of tonight’s show now have the chance to challenge these champions on the big stage.
