The 2023 Mid USA Pro is one of seven IFBB Pro League contests scheduled for this weekend. On Sunday, June 4, competitors from the Classic Physique division met in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to determine who would walk away with gold, a cash prize, and most importantly, an invitation to this year’s Mr. Olympia competition.
Following last year’s Olympia show, the top three finishers from the Classic Physique category were automatically guaranteed invites to this year’s edition of the contest. Time is running out to ensure a spot on the prestigious stage as athletes have until October 9 to earn their invites.
The 2023 Mr. Olympia event takes place November 2-5 in Orlando, Florida, inside the Orange County Convention Center. Whoever emerges with the crown this weekend will have a shot at the reigning four-time Classic Physique kingpin, Chris Bumstead later this year.
As for athletes to watch, Camilo Diaz stands out as he’s been consistent with fourth and fifth-place finishes at the 2023 Pittsburgh Pro and New York Pro, respectively. He appeared on the Olympia stage in 2022 but wasn’t able to place in the top 15.
Meanwhile, Damien Patrick is eager to pick up a win as well. He notched second and third-place performances at the 2023 Fitworld Pro and the Charlotte Pro. Lastly, 2023 New York Pro fifth-place contender Eric Abelon will be in attendance looking to do damage.
