This is the 55th Mr. Olympia to be held on 12th September 2019 to 15th September 2019 at Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The epic event began in the year 1965 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York.
Joseph Weider: The man who started Mr. Olympia
This platform of Mr. Olympia was for those who won the Mr. Universe title in bodybuilding and could further participate and compete on a bigger platform with other winners like him. It was Mr. Joseph Weider and his brother who introduced Mr. Olympia to the world.
2019 Mr. Olympia
With the unexpected suspension of last year’s champion, Shawn Rhoden the public is excited to see this new Mr. Olympia champion crowned.
Mr. Olympia is the title awarded to the winner of the professional men’s bodybuilding contest at Joe Weider’s Olympia Fitness & Performance Weekend, it’s an international bodybuilding competition that is held annually by the International Federation of Bodybuilding & Fitness (IFBB)
The 15th Mr. Olympia will be crowned at the 2019 Mr. Olympia.
The winning prize
For 2019 it has been announced that there will be $1.4 million worth of prize money to be awarded between the competitors. This includes a $4,00,000 grand prize to the champion, in addition to increased prize money across many other divisions. This year all the female divisions will be seeing a jump in rewards for winning the event.
Not just the prize money excites the participants but the pressure to become the brand ambassador adds to the perk of becoming a champion this year.
Thomas J Salzano feels that this time the eyes would be on Brandon Curry and Roelly Winklaar and the competition will be tense with no defending champion to be compared to.
