The 2023 Mile High Pro went down on June 10 in Denver, Colorado, featuring competitors from the Men’s Physique and Bikini categories. This show was an Olympia qualifier for the biggest event of the year taking place in November.
Bodybuilding’s ultimate destination: Mr. Olympia, takes place November 2-5 in Orlando, Florida. Athletes who wish to compete in this event must earn a qualification. The Olympia Qualification System has undergone dramatic changes since 2022. The point system is no longer in effect so athletes must win a pro show to guarantee entry.
In addition, the deadline to qualify for the 2023 Mr. Olympia show expires on October 9. With time running out to earn an invite, the pressure is building with each passing weekend. Whoever takes home the Men’s Physique crown will have a shot at Erin Banks later this year. Meanwhile, the Bikini winner will also have an opportunity to square off against the current Bikini Olympia Maureen Blanquisco.
With such a stellar roster of talent, determining favorites was a difficult task, but there were some names to watch. Riccardo Croci who is already qualified off his Tropicarium Budapest Pro win, plans to do some damage. Additionally, the 2023 Miami Muscle Beach winner Ramses Rams will aim to earn another title this year. Diogo Basaglia is a hot name to keep an eye on given the strides he’s made as of late too.
