In 1965, Joe Weider created the Mr. Olympia, a competition to determine the world’s best-built man. From that first contest of three competitors in front of a standing-room-only crowd of about 2,500 at New York City’s Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Olympia has grown into a global mega-event.
Today, the Olympia Weekend features the best of the best IFBB pros in bodybuilding, physique, figure, fitness, and bikini, as well as a two-day expo that sees well over 50,000 fans traverse the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center. With $1.36 million in prizes, the Olympia is the richest and most prestigious event in bodybuilding and fitness.
The Olympia Fitness and Performance weekend is pure excitement from start to finish, but the real magic happens at the Orleans Arena when the top Bodybuilders, Classic Physique, Fitness, Figure, and Bikini athletes take to the stage and battle for the Olympia titles, securing their elite status as the very best in the world! Below, you’ll find five reasons why you absolutely have to tune in live.
FRIDAY: Fitness, Figure, and Classic Physique Finals, 212 and Mr. Olympia Judging @ 10pm ET, 7pm PT
SATURDAY: Bikini, 212 & Mr. Olympia Finals @ 10pm ET, 7pm PT
Phil Heath has made his intentions very clear: to eventually earn a record-breaking 10 Mr. Olympia titles. Last year, Heath tied Arnold Schwarzenegger and won his 7th consecutive Sandow, and if all things go according to Phil’s plan, he’ll be leaving Vegas this year with an 8th, tying the records of Lee Haney and Ronnie Coleman. Can he do it again in a stacked lineup of the 19 best bodybuilders in the world?
For the first time in the event’s history, fans will cast one of the votes to select the winner of the 2018 Mr. Olympia. Ticket holders for the judging round on Friday, September 14, and the finals on Saturday, September 15, will receive a special code with which they can evaluate each competitor and cast their vote on their phones. The fan votes will be collectively counted as one vote, joining the votes of the judges on the panel. In the event the athlete earning the fan vote does not win the title, that competitor will be crowned the 2018 People’s Champion. Who will earn the first-ever People’s Champ award?
Since the first 212 Olympia in 2012 (prior to that it was the 202 Showdown), one man has held the title: James “Flex” Lewis. With six wins under his belt, he’ll be going for an impressive 7th title at the 2018 Olympia. At 11 weeks out, Flex Lewis made a major announcement about the biggest decision of his bodybuilding career—the 2018 Olympia will be his last time competing on the 212 Olympia stage! Will Flex Lewis continue his legacy and finish off his 212 bodybuilding career with a 7th and final 212 Olympia win?
The Olympia Fitness and Performance Weekend isn’t all about the men. The lovely ladies of the Olympia are the very best in the world at bringing a combination of strength, sexiness, beauty, and muscle to the stage. With four-time Fitness Olympia champ Oksana Grishina retired, a new Fitness Olympia athlete will capture the title. Will reigning champs Angelica Teixeira and Cydney Gillon keep their Bikini and Figure titles respectively, or will there be new queens crowned on the 2018 Olympia stage?
