The 2019 Olympia has concluded and there were many surprises over the weekend, which mainly involved the crowning of several new champions in each division.
But there was one big announcement which most could say they probably didn’t expect… like the Ms. Olympia contest coming back to the fitness event in 2020!
Now, the Women’s Open division was a controversial one since being dropped from Olympia weekend back in 2014. And there just wasn’t enough interest behind it to justify keeping the division in the lineup.
However, the Wings Of Strength organization has continued to welcome Open division competitors. Just last week the World Championships of Women’s Bodybuilding featured some of the best women’s bodybuilding athletes. And with their collaborative efforts, the Olympia stage will see the resurgence of the Women’s Open contest.
This announcement will surely draw more attention to Joe Weider’s Olympia Fitness and Performance Weekend seeing as how many legends came from this division like Corrina Everson, Lenda Murray, and the most recent champion Iris Kyle; who owns the most Olympia titles (10) out of any athlete, male or female.
Watch the announcement below:
So, there will no doubt be a lot of hype behind the division, leading up to the 2020 Olympia!
