Bodybuilder Blessing Awodibu had the fans concerned about his health after hinting at a potential injury. In a recent Instagram post, Blessing shared that he did not get seriously injured after the “lil accident” and looks forward to packing on the pounds in the next few weeks.
Blessing Awodibu made headlines for his insane muscle mass and outspoken personality. The Men’s Open competitor emerged as one of the most hyped prospects in the sport. He kicked off his rookie season in 2021 with an impressive appearance at the 2021 IFBB Indy Pro, placing third in his debut. He followed up with a sixth-place finish at the New York Pro, where he fell short of the champion and former rival Nick Walker.
After the two successive wins, Blessing did not shy away from igniting a rivalry with ‘The Mutant.’ He stated that he would “whoop Walker’s a**” at the Olympia competition. The pair have since moved on from their dispute and get along well off-stage. Walker suggested that there was no bad blood between them. He believed Blessing would not be a threat to him in the near future given the difference in their physiques.
The win earned him an invite to the 2022 Mr. Olympia contest. Along with Blessing, Slovakian mass monster Michal Krizo entered the 2022 season as a budding contender. The two share a heated rivalry stemming from their battle in amateur events. When Krizo was looking to earn his Pro card two months out from the Olympia, Blessing trash-talked Krizo and received a fiery response back.
After Krizo earned his Pro card, Blessing Awodibu bashed Krizo again by mocking his entry into the Open Pro division. Rising sensation Andrew Jacked was another up-and-coming bodybuilder who gained a lot of attention last year. There was a lot of anticipation to see the new talent battle with the veterans at the Olympia show.
Blessing and Krizo showed off their monstrous physiques in an insane update four days out from the Olympia. Walker traded verbal jabs with Blessing at the presser. However, Blessing missed the mark in the contest and finished 16th. Meanwhile, Krizo finished 12th and Jacked placed eighth. Walker earned a third-place finish along with the honor of the People’s Champ award.
