The industry is buzzing about the two IFBB Pro Cards that will be awarded for each division. In total 10 coveted IFBB Pro Cards will be up for grabs to athletes competing in the contest.
Never before in the history of the Olympia competition amateur athletes had the opportunity to flex in the same prestigious event with the best of the best. Not only will reigning 6x Mr. Olympia Phil Heath be there to defend his title but also other bodybuilding greats like Dexter Jackson, Mamdouh “Big Ramy” Elssbiay and the legendary Flex Wheeler.
