    The 2017 Mr. Olympia

    As we head into July, bodybuilding fans and enthusiasts alike are looking forward to the much anticipated 2017 Olympia event in Las Vegas, Nevada! Taking place from September 14 to 17, the Mr. Olympia contest and expo is sure to bring fans from all across the globe for what should be one of the most competitive match-ups we have seen in awhile on the main stage.


    With Cedric McMillan winning this year’s Arnold Classic and looking better with his signature conditioning and aesthetic appeal, can Phil Heath continue his reign of dominance and become a 7-time Mr. Olympia winner? Or will the tides turn as we’re starting to see a slight favor towards a more “classic” look, and have the judges sway their opinion towards McMillan? With about 3 months left for contest prep, it should be exciting to follow everyone into the contest stage and see if history can be made.


    Anything can happen leading up to the Mr. Olympia and there is a line-up of great competitors able to score an upset on contest night. Big Ramy is looking freakishly huge with recent footage of him, walking at around 320 pounds in the offseason! Dexter “The Blade” Jackson is always prime to take an upset placing with his consistency with being in shape on contest night and remains a threat - even at the age of 47.


    And of course, the big talk this year is the Olympia debut of Sergio Olivia Jr., who is none other than the son of 3x Mr. Olympia winner Sergio “The Myth” Olivia. Can we have the first 2nd generation IFBB bodybuilder win the entire Olympia? It is a long shot to say the least for this year, but it will be interesting to see how Olivia Jr. gets ready for the stage and time will tell whether he has what it takes to be a future champion.


    Here is a list of competitors qualified so far for the Mr. Olympia (taken from the Mr. Olympia contest website this month):


    NAME COUNTRY
    Beyeke, Lionel - France
    Bonac, William - Netherlands
    Curry, Brandon - USA
    De Asha, Nathan - United Kingdom
    Elssbiay, Mamdouh - Egypt
    Heath, Phil - USA
    Jackson, Dexter - USA
    Jackson, Johnnie - USA
    Martinez, Victor - Dominican Republic
    McMillan, Cedric - USA
    Oliva Jr., Sergio - USA
    Osladil, Lukas - Czech Republic
    Rhoden, Shawn - USA
    Williams, Gerald - USA
    Winklaar, Roelly - Curacao




    Coverage of the Mr. Olympia on Muscle Mecca will also feature the 212 division, which has a roster of seasoned vets set to make a competitive line-up this year! Flex Lewis is the reigning 5x 212 Olympia and will surely be tough to dethrone with his dominating size and conditioning set forth every Olympia contest. With the 2017 Arnold Classic casting a few surprises in this division earlier this year, Ahmad Ashkanani is in a position to create even more upsets when he faces Flex Lewis onstage in September.


    Currently qualified 212 Olympia contestants:


    NAME COUNTRY
    Ashkanani, Ahmad - Kuwait
    Choopan, Hadi - Iran
    Correa, Eduardo - Brazil
    Dixon, Charles - USA
    Henry, David - USA
    Lewis, Flex - United Kingdom
    Raymond, Jose - USA
    Rockell, Ronny - Germany
    Sadek, Milan - Czech Republic


    The Fitness Olympia always puts on a great show in Las Vegas, and Oksana Grishina has won the past 3 Fitness Olympia titles in convincing fashion. Despite being 39 years old, age has not slowed her down and we here at Muscle Mecca predict that Oksana will be a likely 4x Fitness Olympia champion this year.


    Currently qualified Fitness Olympia contestants:


    NAME COUNTRY
    Da Silva, Regiane - Germany
    Foroni, Giorgia - Italy
    Grishina, Oksana - Russia
    Johnson, Tanji - USA
    Jones, Whitney - USA
    Kendall-Williams, Sally - USA
    Khadr, Ariel - USA
    Pajunen, Piia - Finland
    Wagner, Bethany - USA


    Muscle Mecca will also be providing you continual coverage of the Figure Olympia - who doesn’t love seeing these ladies onstage?! Though there is a wide talent pool of qualified competitors, Latorya Watts brings a package of perfect shape, symmetry, and one of the most impressive v-tapers we have ever seen in the division that will be hard to stop her from winning the title a 4th time. What do you think guys and gals - does anyone have a chance of beating Latorya?


    Currently qualified Figure Olympia contestants:


    NAME COUNTRY
    Calhoun, Andrea - USA
    Dees, Heather - USA
    De La Rosa, Swann - USA
    Fortino, Wendy - USA
    Garcia, Maria - Spain
    Gillon, Cydney - USA
    Grajales, Sandra - Mexico
    Hammermeister, Stephanie - USA
    Ivusic, Ivana - USA
    Jordan, Marlissa - USA
    Lewis Carter, Candice - USA
    Martineau, Laurelle - USA
    Ondrejovicova, Adela - Slovakia
    Pollard, Andrea - USA
    Reyes Padilla, Jessica - Puerto Rico
    Soltero, Natalia - Mexico
    Watts, Latorya - USA
    Wilkins, Nicole - USA
    Yabekova, Martina - Canada
    Zabavina, Natalia - Russia




    With the continuing growth of the sport & more people interested in competing, the Olympia will be featuring more divisions than ever before. Not only will Men’s Physique be featured, but we also have:


    Men’s Classic Physique
    Women’s Physique
    Women’s Bikini


    It will definitely be a long weekend of competition in this year’s iteration of the Olympia. As in years past, the main contest stage will be held at the Orleans Arena with the official hotel venue being the Orleans Hotel (off-strip). Book now if you haven’t already - from my past experience, the Orleans gets fully booked by around July!


    The Olympia experience wouldn’t be complete without going to the Olympia Expo, so be sure to check that out too! Featuring not only bodybuilding and physique, the expo is packed with contests such as powerlifting, strongman, and even jiu-jitsu. As with every year at the expo, they will also be featuring the “Male Model Search” in which you can win an exclusive contract with a media company by showing up at the expo and proving that you have what it takes to be the next big time model. Details can be found on the Mr. Olympia website.


    Muscle Mecca signing off for now. We’ll be keeping you posted with continual updates on the Olympia and be providing you coverage as we get closer to September. As always, keep training hard and work on becoming the best version of what you want to be in the gym!
