Petar Klancir and Charles Griffen Out of 2022 New York Pro

Petar Klancir and Charles Griffen out of the 2022 New York Pro?!

It appears that bodybuilding standouts Petar Klancir and Charles Griffin are out of the New York Pro. The two top bodybuilders had a great chance at placing in the top five at the 2022 show. Unfortunately it appears that both men will be missing the competition and it will be all the show will be all the lesser for it.

Petar Klancir

It appears that Petar Klancir won’t be at the 2022 New York Pro due to visa reasons. This is unfortunate but not the worst thing in the world. After all, Klancir could have missed the show due to injury. Rather than it being a terrible turn of events, it can be looked at as a minor delay that sees Klancir getting even more improved for the California Pro show.

I wish good luck to my team @mauro_sassi_team_stones at Ney York Pro this weekend. I know guys how much effort and sacrifice you put into the preparations, now is your time! 👊

Unfortunately I am still waiting for an answer for the visa so I doubt I will arrive on time. Good luck and hope to see you in San Diego. 🙏

The French bodybuilder has always impressed, but this delay could prove to be a boon. More than likely Petar Klancir will be even more improved for the California show.

Charles Griffen

For Charles Griffen his reasons for missing the NY Pro is a bit different. While Klancir missed the show due to a visa issue, Griffen is skipping the show for personal reasons. Those reasons is that Griffen wants to give himself a rest.

Going so hard in the paint. Next stop @musclecontest Cal Pro. I decided to give my body a rest and not do NY Pro this weekend. Myself and @mattjansen8 knew this was the best route for us to be our best and to better than we were last weekend.

It makes sense when you think about it. Charles Griffen came second in the Indy Pro after all. Griffen possibly wants to give himself the best chance at winning the show.

This also means Petar Klancir and Charles Griffen will face off at the California Pro. Who do you think will out duel the other?
