And the new Mr. Olympia 2019 champion is…
It was a long winding road to get here with a lot of starts and stops and changes to the lineup for the most prestigious division in the sport of bodybuilding. With no returning champion in the form of Shawn Rhoden and Phil Heath taking at least a year off before attempting to reclaim his thrown – this year’s Men’s Open Olympia was open to a new champion.
So of course the prejudging last night proved to be an exciting one as many predicted – though perhaps many fans wouldn’t have expected to see Hadi land so high in the callouts. If what we saw is to be believed, Hadi was placed in the final top 4 callout alongside Brandon Curry, William Bonac, and Roelly Winklaar.
A slight upset came in the form of Dexter Jackson who seemed to be considered for a sixth or fifth placing during the prejudging. Of course the finals are the last chance to prove your worth and a lot can change in just 24 hours. For all of these competitors it was an epic fight to the finish.
It was a hard fought battle but the results are finally in. Check them out below – brought to you by Nano Rx!
