2022 Puerto Rico Pro Preview: Will Hassan Mostafa Avenge Last Year’s Performance?

Event Preview

Who will take home the title at the 2022 Puerto Rico Pro?

The 2022 Puerto Rico Pro is the next big show of the bodybuilding season. There will be 10 divisions present in San Juan, Puerto Rico fitting for that automatic qualification to the 2022 Olympia. The show will take place from June 17-19 with many exciting events on the schedule.

The Olympia is set for Dec. 16-18 in Las Vegas. Winners of shows will be automatically entered while others will gain points toward the Olympia Qualification System. In this particular show, the athletes who finish second through fifth will earn Tier 3 points.

The Men’s Open division will once again be the highlight of the show and there are a few big names who could take home the prize. Below, check out a breakdown of some of the top competitors, along with the full roster for each division.

2022 Puerto Rico Pro: Men’s Open Roster

  • Maxx Charles
  • Marc Arthur Dautruchee
  • Jonas Giatras
  • Theo Leguerrier
  • Hassan Mostafa
  • Andrea Muzi

Hassan Mostafa

Many eyes will be on Hassan Mostafa, who finished third at this event last year. He is the highest returning finisher and will look to take the next step. Mostafa did not win a show last year but earned enough points to qualify for the Olympia, where he finished 13th. This season, Mostafa seems to have made major improvements, including adding size and is more conditioned. Heading into Puerto Rico, Mostafa might be considered the favorite.

Maxx Charles

Maxx Charles has been busy this season thus far. He has competed five times with two top-three finishes. Charles finished third at the New York Pro and Indy Pro in back-to-back weekends. He has put himself in a strong position regarding qualification points but would like to earn a victory and skip that process. It will be interesting to see how Charles continues on if he does not win this show, considering he has competed many times already. If he can pull it out, there will still be some time to rest and prepare for December.

Theo Leguerrier

Theo Leguerrier continues to gain momentum in Men’s Open. He finished as the runner-up during the Toronto Pro just two weeks ago, which was his highest as a pro. Leguerrier can be considered a dark-horse to win this show if he shows up in his best shape. Andrea Muzi also appeared in this show last year looking to improve on his finish.
