A complete list of the currently qualified bodybuilders for the 2023 Olympia weekend – plus a breakdown of the requirements.

The 2023 Olympia will take place from Nov. 2-5 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. The show will return to Florida after taking place in Las Vegas last year. There is still time for competitors to qualify for the biggest show of the year.

The qualification period began on Nov. 21, 2022 and will end on Oct. 9, 2023. In year’s past, competitors were able to total points over the course of the season and qualify for the Olympia by finishing in the top three. In December, the IFBB announced that this would not be the case in 2023. Athletes will have to win a show in order to punch their ticket to the Olympia, other than Wheelchair.

Automatic qualifications based on the 2022 Olympia are as follows:

For all Divisions except Wheelchair Bodybuilding

  • Top 5 from 2022 Mr. Olympia
  • Top 3 from all other divisions in 2022 Olympia
  • Winner of each OPEN contest held during the qualification period

For Wheelchair Bodybuilding

  • Top 3 from 2022 Olympia
  • Winner of each OPEN contest held during the qualification period
  • Top 5 in the Points Standing
