Mr. Olympia 2019
With Rhoden out, Kai Greene filming in India and Phil Heath leaving us wondering until the last minute. A a new line up for Mr. Olympia was formed and Brandon Curry came out on top. Moving up from 5th place last year Curry stepped up to claim Mr. Olympia 2019
Brandon Curry is the first competitor from Nashville to win the title of Mr. Olympia.
Mr. Olympia 2019 Winner: Brandon Curry
AKA "The Prodigy" Takes the Title along with $400,000 in prize money.
Mr. Olympia top 3 2019
William Bonac from Ghana aka "William the Conqueror"
takes 2nd Place, winning $150,000
Hadi Choopan the Iranian Legand aka "The Persian Wolf"
The New People's Champ takes 3rd Place winning $100,000
Hadi Choopan cracks the top 3! His first time competing in the biggest bodybuilding event of the year,
Dexter "The Blade" Jackson at the age of 49 shows age ain't nothing but a number.
Dexter with his age defying abilities came in 4th place winning $45,000. This was Jackson's 20th appearance, setting a new record for competing in Mr. Olympia.
And Roelly Winklaar from Curaçaoan aka "The Beast" came in 5th to take home $40,000
With the big names missing Mr. Olympia was blown wide open for others to step up and take a shot. Many hoped the winner would be Dexter Jackson as winning would make Dexter "The Blade" Jackson the first to win with over a 10 year gap between wins. His first win was in 2008 but it wasn't meant to be. So with Brandon taking the crown for his first win. He made history by taking the win home to Nashville.
A New Champ Reigns for 2019
Well with Curry on top I am already eager to see what happens next year. Will Curry be able to hold onto the title? Will the likes of Kai and Phil come back. Will Rhoden be able to compete? With so many questions I eagerly wait to see what happens next.
Enjoy your win Mr. Olympia, you earned it.
