Tommi Thompson wins the 2022 Natural Olympia title! 

The 2022 Natural Olympia results are in! The 2022 Natural Olympia took place at the Golden Nugget Las Vegas Hotel & Casino from November 10-13. And it was Tommi Thompson that came out on top. 

Tommi Thompson won the Men’s Bodybuilding Open division at Natural Olympia. Earlier this summer, Thompson shared some contest prep tips before competing at the International Natural Bodybuilding Association (INBA)/Professional Natural Bodybuilding Association (PNBA) Pro/Am World Championships in Florence, Italy. Of course, his prep and training with former Natural Olympia champ Philip Ricardo Jr. have paid off now that he’s the champ of the biggest natural bodybuilding show globally. 

The INBA PNBA, the largest natural bodybuilding organization globally, hosts the Super Bowl of bodybuilding. Natural Olympia is akin to Mr. Olympia except with one big difference–as the name implies, it’s for naturals only. Bodybuilders that compete in Natural Olympia are thoroughly drug tested through the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) guidelines–the most superior drug testing standards in professional sports. 

The cash prizes aren’t nearly as big as the ones in the International Federation of BodyBuilding and Fitness (IFBB) Pro. For example, the 2022 Mr. Olympia champ Hadi Choopan won a whopping $400,000 winning Mr. Olympia, compared to Thompson’s $3,000 payout for winning the Men’s Bodybuilding Open division at Natural Olympia. And, of course, as natural athletes, there’s a considerable size difference between the athletes in the INBA PNBA league compared to the IFBB Pro athletes. 

This year Natural Olympia saw many prominent faces, including the legend and former Natural Olympia champ Philip Ricardo Jr., Hall of Famer Chad Martin, and 3x Natural Olympia Classic Physique champ Brandon Lirio. And Men’s Bodybuilding Masters top competitor Peter Cichonski and former Bikini Divas champ Kayla Rowling. In addition, 6x Natural Olympia champ Kiyoshi Moody came out of retirement to step on the Pinnacle of Natural Bodybuilding stage. 

Moreover, many reigning champs from 2021 Natural Olympia came back to reclaim their title: Alondra Chatman (Figure Open ), Derek Joe (Classic Physique Open ), Tamer Barakat (Classic Physique Masters ), Arely Ayala (Angels ), Hilary Grant (Figure Masters), and Claire Burton (Women’s Physique Masters).
