2023 Empro Classic Pro Results – Michal Krizo Wins Open Bodybuilding


Michal Krizo wins Men’s Open Bodybuilding Title at the 2023 Empro Classic Pro!

The 2023 Empro Classic Pro took place over the weekend in Alicante, Spain from June 16th – 18th 2023. There was a total of six divisions in the IFBB Pro League show with winners looking to qualify for the 2023 Mr Olympia contest. The divisions included Men’s Open, Classic Physique, Figure, Bikini, Women’s Physique, and Wellness. The show was highlighted by IFBB Pro bodybuilder, Michal Krizo. 

The Olympia qualification system has changed this year. If an athlete did not finish in the top three in the previous year, or top five in Men’s Open, they will have to win a show to qualify. The points qualification system is no more. Also, former winners of an Olympia title have lifetime eligibility to the 2023 Mr. Olympia event taking place in Orlando, Florida November 2-5 2023.

Michal Krizo took the stage on Saturday after preparing for this event for months. Krizo burst onto the scene last year after making the move to the IFBB. He entered the weekend looking to qualify for his second-consecutive appearance in the Olympia.

The full results from the show have been announced. Below, check out the full breakdown, along with an official scorecard.
