2021 Legion Sports Pro Fest Competitors To Watch

Sergio Oliva Jr.

Sergio Oliva Jr. finished sixth at the Arnold Classic but earned his second-straight posing award. He has turned into one of the best posers in bodybuilding and this is part of the battle. During the Arnold Classic, Oliva was not as dry and tight as he needed to be. This is something that could be changed heading into the weekend. Oliva certainly has the size to finish near the top of the show and it will come down to the shape he shows up in.

Regan Grimes

Regan Grimes recently hired a new coach and the progress is already visible. This came quickly after a 15th place finish at the 2021 Olympia a few weeks ago. Grimes has not been in the win column since the 2020 Romania Pro and is looking to change his fortune. Grimes will enter the competition as one of the top competitors and his recent physique updates have shown. Grimes displays massive legs and shoulders along with a small waist. This shows well on stage and if he enters in top condition, Grimes has a chance to compete.

Cedric McMillan

Cedric McMillan has missed some time with injuries and he is looking to get back into serious competition. McMillan was on the broadcast for the 2021 Arnold Classic but was unable to compete. Now that he is cleared, there is a new force to be reckoned with. McMillan will enter the competition as one of the biggest competitors, both in size and height. He has a physique that is well-proportioned and is a strong poser. McMillan will have a chance to have a put on a show in his return.

Patrick Moore

Patrick Moore is another competitor who finished near the bottom of the Olympia. After a 14th place finish, Moore is looking to improve his physique and attempt to qualify for next year’s competition. The reigning California Pro champion is not the biggest competitor but he makes up for it in conditioning and presentation. If Moore enters the weekend in his best shape, he will be a force on stage.

Shaun Clarida

Shaun Clarida is one of the top 212 competitors in the sport. He won the Olympia 212 back in 2020 and finished second to Derek Lunsford this year. Now, Clarida will try his hand in Men’s Open. This is not a permanent switch as Clarida has said that he is not leaving the 212 division. This is a chance to see how Clarida matches up with the big boys in Men’s Open. He is normally an extremely well-conditioned competitor and this might translate well.
