While his first trip to the Olympia stage was less than ideal, Wesley Vissers has learned and grown from that moment. With the biggest knock on him being his legs and conditioning, it appears that Vissers time away from competing has proven fruitful as he’s improved in both areas. Will it be enough to contend with the top of the division? We’ll soon see.

Terrence Ruffin

The runner-up at the 2020 Arnold Classic, Terrence Ruffin showcased a much improved physique as well as a sharp posing routine. Now looking to bring his best to the Olympia stage, Ruffin certainly has the tools to break into the top five of the division.

The 2020 Arnold Classic champion, Alex Cambronero has shown major improvements this year. Putting on some great size while maintaining his incredibly sharp conditioning, Cambronero is the dark horse in this field. Don’t be surprised if he gives Chris Bumstead and Breon Ansley a run for their money.

Speaking of the former champion, Breon Ansley has been looking insane in the lead up to this event. With improved musculature and incredible conditioning, Ansley hopes to capture the Olympia title once again. He lost to Chris Bumstead by a single point at the 2019 show which means the title is up for grabs. Can Ansley reclaim the throne or will he have to once again settle for second place?

The reigning Classic Physique Olympia champion, Chris Bumstead impressed with his showing in 2019. According to reports, he was in less than optimal condition at last year’s show meaning that by all accounts we should be seeing a much improved Bumstead in 2020. He has all the tools necessary to reclaim the title, but with Breon Ansley hot on his heels, Bumstead will need to pull out all the stops in order to secure victory.

Who do you think will win at the 2020 Olympia?
