Winner — Iain Valliere

Valliere and Vaillant were the two favorites going into the contest, and they were compared early and often. Valliere’s muscle thickness and conditioning, especially in back poses — particularly his back-double biceps pose — was what made the difference for him to take the victory.

Valliere referred to this showing as his “new best.” Whether he will compete before the Olympia or not is not yet confirmed, but his entry to the 2022 Olympia is clinched.

Second Place — Antoine Vaillant

This was Vaillant’s first contest in 19 months. It also marked his return from injuries, including a heart condition. He held his own against Valliere in terms of overall size, but Valliere’s density was too much to overcome.

Despite Valliere being unstoppable, Vaillant’s physique was an impressive one. There is no word on when he will step on stage next, but he could likely win a show if he opts to compete again before the 2022 season concludes.

Third Place — Hossein Kalate

The 2022 Toronto Pro Supershow 212 winner, Kalate, made his Men’s Open debut at this show, and he appeared ripped in every pose he presented. Valliere’s and Vaillant’s sizes were dominant, however, and that is why he didn’t rank above bronze.

On the upside, Kalate showed his potential in the Men’s Open going forward. He’s set to compete in the 2022 Olympia 212 contest in Las Vegas, but he may wish to join Shaun Clarida and Angel Calderon as athletes with multiple qualifications and potentially move to the Mr. Olympia contest.
