Bodybuilder Michal Krizo Switches From IFBB Elite Pro To NPC

Michal Krizo Mr. Universe Pro 2021

Its official! IFBB Elite Pro Bodybuilder Michal Krizo has made the switch to the NPC in quest for Olympia 2022.

After nearly a year of rumors, Michal Krizo has made the switch to NPC from the IFBB Elite Pro, where he has been one of the bodybuilding superstars and arguably the face of the league.

The move was made official in a press release published by EVLS Prague Pro. This is the organizer of the EVLS Prague Pro and amateur show. Bodybuilder, Krizo is well known for his massive size, aesthetic physique, and balanced symmetry. He is well known in the bodybuilding scene after winning the 2021 Mr Universe Pro Show.

“Dear fans,
As you all know very well, EVLS PRAGUE is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year. During these ten years, it has created a solid place not only in the bodybuilding world, but also in your hearts, which we greatly appreciate and thank you for.
That is why we are happy that we managed to enter into cooperation with a personality whom we respect very much and we believe that with our support he will achieve many successes and fight for the highest one, Mr. Olympia.
MICHAL “KRIŽO” KRIŽÁNEK is a new member of the EVLS Team!
Michal has decided to end his time in the Elite Pro federation and we are extremely honored that he will be showing his qualities in the NPC federation as a member of the EVLS team.
We have always had only the highest goals, we have prepared great, dare we say timeless festivals, we have created a globally respected brand that is a symbol of quality and pride, and we firmly believe that it will continue to be so in the next ten years!”


Michal Krizo Hopes To Turn Pro And Compete In Olympia

For any bodybuilder, the goal is to earn their Pro Card and compete on the biggest stage in the sport. For Krizo, it is no different as he makes the move to NPC. Krizo’s first hurdle will be earning his Pro Card within the NPC.

This is something that fellow Slovakian bodybuilder Adela Ondrejovicova did a few weeks back. She was able to earn her Pro Card almost instantly and will now have a chance to compete against the IFBB pros. Both athletes share a coach and it is likely that Krizo will begin training immediately to win a show and earn his card as well.

For NPC, this is a huge move as Michal Krizo adds star power to a league that has become extremely marketable overtime. Krizo is the type of figure that brings attention and fans to shows that he competes in and will no doubt bring excitement to the Mr Olympia Show.

For Michal Krizo, this is the next move in what has already been a successful career and compete on the biggest stage, the 2022 Mr Olympia. Now, he will look to take it to the next level at the Olympia which takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 15th – 16th 2022.
