The new way for competitors to punch their ticket for the Olympia!
Qualifying for the Olympia is perhaps the biggest drive for most high level bodybuilders. If you want to make it to the big show then it requires winning shows and building up the necessary points to be qualified.
Now it appears that the IFBB Pro League is implementing a new qualification process for the Olympia.
The new qualification processed was released over social media for the competitors to see the requirements for punching their ticket to the 2020 Olympia. Take a look at the Instagram post below to get all the details on the new process for qualifying for the Olympia.

Due to the overwhelmingly positive response we’ve received since announcing the 2020 Olympia Qualification System, the IFBB Professional League will continue to support our promoters and strive to improve for our athletes to achieve their dream of stepping on the Olympia stage. So, we decided to make some changes to make the athletes Olympia experience even better! Following President Jim Manion’s motto “You Win, You’re In!”, below is an update on the 2020 Olympia Qualification System: 2020 Olympia Qualification System (“OQS”) Update: The IFBB Professional League, along with Joe Weider’s Olympia Fitness & Performance Weekend, is pleased to announce the 2020 Olympia Qualification System (“OQS”). The 2020 OQS qualifies athletes for the 2020 OLYMPIA and runs from August 5, 2019 to August 3, 2020. The OQS awards points to competitors placing 2nd to 5th. Depending on the division, the top 3 or top 5 competitors with the highest point totals qualify to compete at the OLYMPIA. Ties are broken in favor of the competitor with the better placings (the tier levels are also taken into consideration). Athletes are not moved up if a position becomes vacated. To view the 2020 OQS list of qualified athletes and point standings, please visit the OQS section of www.IFBBPRO.com, www.MROLYMPIA.com or www.NPCNEWSONLINE.com. Questions regarding the 2020 OQS may be directed to Tony Blinn at firstname.lastname@example.org. @npcnewsonlineofficialpage @ifbb_pro_league @npcnewstv @npcfitbody @mrolympiallc #npcnewsonline #olympiaqualification #olympiaqualificationseries #olympia #mrolympia
