Classic Physique standout Urs Kalecinski is gearing up for another crack at Chris Bumstead’s Olympia title. In a YouTube video shared on October 10, 2023, Kalecinski teased fans with a posing session and physique update three weeks from taking to the stage.
Many in the bodybuilding world consider Urs Kalecinski to be the future of the Classic Physique division. At just 25 years old, Kalecinski’s popularity has skyrocketed, and not just because of his golden era look. He boasts a highly defined lower body and X-frame that matches up well with his adversaries.
“The Miracle Bear” picked up steam last year with a three-show season. It started with a third-place finish at the 2022 Arnold Classic, where he trailed behind Ramon Rocha Queiroz and two-time champ Terrence Ruffin. Kalecinski bounced back a week later with a victory at the Boston Pro. Cementing his Olympia qualification, Kalecinski improved his placing to third at the sport’s biggest showcase.
Fresh off a runner-up 2023 Arnold Classic showing to Queiroz, Kalecinski has once again set his sights on the divisional king — reigning four-time Classic Physique Olympia Chris Bumstead. This time around, Kalecisnki is convinced he could pull off the upset in just days, thanks to the new height and weight rules that were put in place for Classic Physique.

Heading into November’s 2023 Olympia contest, Kalecinski is more confident than ever having enjoyed an extra few pounds to play with. According to Kalecinski, Bumstead is a great champion but he’s ‘beatable.’ He explained that to Chris Cormier and Flex Wheeler in a recent Olympia TV interview, and made it clear he’s 100% focused on his campaign for Olympia glory.
Instead of competing at Olympia to defeat Urs Kalecinski or Ramon Rocha Queiroz, Bumstead admits he’s only focused on beating himself on the big stage. With the Canadian facing one of the more difficult preps of his career, should he leave the door open, Kalecinski plans to kick it in.
Making the most of his time away from the stage, Kalecinski joined forces with former four-time Mr. Olympia kingpin Jay Cutler. They bonded with a chest-focused workout and topped it off with a physique update. With Cutler’s insight and on-stage savviness, Kalecinski is motivated to shut down any naysayers in his next outing.
The upcoming 2023 Mr. Olympia contest will welcome the world’s best from November 2-5 in Orlando, Florida. Kalecinski will vie for gold in the most talked-about event of the year and is aiming for a massive upset.
