Regan Grimes wins Men’s Open at the KO Pro Egypt!
Regan Grimes showed up and displayed an incredible physique that led him to the title at the 2021 KO Pro Egypt. Grimes earned the automatic qualification to the 2022 Olympia, along with three other divisions. This event took place in Egypt and some of the top competition in the world was present.
Grimes led the way by taking home the prize in the headlining division. Grimes hired a new coach after this year’s Olympia and it seems to be working right away. He finished second to Shaun Clarida last weekend at the 2021 Legion Sports Fest. Now, he was able to earn his qualification to the biggest competition of the year. This comes after a bit of a disappointing outing during the 2021 show.
Grimes had to compete with some other elite names in the sport. Cedric McMillan returned to the stage for the second straight weekend after he appeared at the Legion Sports Fest. McMillan returned from an injury and it is good to see him back in competition on a consistent basis. Mohamed Shaaban and Samson Dauda also appeared on stage in Egypt.
In the home country of Olympia champion Big Ramy, there was an exciting show to watch on Sunday. The sport of bodybuilding has become huge around the world and Egypt is one of the countries that is leading the charge. It is because of competitions like this that the sport is continuing to grow.
The full results from Egypt have been announced. There were a total of four major divisions where the winner earned qualification to the 2022 Olympia next December. Check out the full breakdown from the event below!
