2023 Chicago Pro Bodybuilding Show Results: Justin Shier Wins “2023 Chicago Pro Bodybuilding Show”. And He Is Headed Out To The “2023 Mr. Olympia Competition”

The 2023 Chicago Pro Bodybuilding Show began on Friday night on July 21st, 2023 in Tinley, Illinois, and wrapped up on Saturday, July 22nd, 2023. All 10 IFBB Pro League divisions in bodybuilding were present with winners earning a spot in the 2023 Olympia.

After a thrilling two-night event in a row, the highlight win of the show was Men’s Open competitor, Justin Shier – earning qualification to Mr. Olympia.

The Olympia qualification system has changed this year. If an athlete did not finish in the top three in the previous year or the top five in the Men’s Open, they will have to win a show to qualify. The points qualification system is no more. Also, former winners of an Olympia title have lifetime eligibility.

“The Men’s Open division will crown a new champion on Saturday night. Antoine Valliant did not defend his title on stage but the battle for first was expected to be a good one. Blessing Awodibu highlighted the men’s open group, along with Stan de Longeaux. The battle between the two has plenty of hype with Patrick Moore also throwing his name into the mix”.

The results from the show have been announced. Below, check out the full breakdown, along with an official scorecard.

Men’s Open Winner — Justin Shier

This was Justin Shier’s pro debut. He was the clear winner in both pre-judging and finals. He was bigger and harder than he was when he turned pro at the 2021 NPC North American Championships.

Many fans expected Shier to be a top finisher in this show, but few had him early favorite Blessing Awodibu for the win. As a result of this performance, Shier qualified for the 2023 Mr. Olympia.

212 Bodybuilding Winner — Chris Jones

This was Chris Jones’ pro debut. His previous onstage appearance was earning his pro card at the 2021 NPC Worldwide Amateur Olympia Orlando show. He took 2022 off to build his physique to contend at the top level and it paid off. He won in his first pro show and subsequently qualified for his first Olympia.

Classic Physique Winner — Marcus Perry

Marcus Perry scored his second pro career victory in impressive fashion. He was bigger and leaner than at the 2022 Classic Physique Olympia, where he placed outside the top 15. This win earned him his return trip to bodybuilding’s grandest stage, offering the opportunity to break into the top 15.

Men’s Physique Winner — Drew Cullen

Drew Cullen represented the host state and did so well as he went home with the gold and 2023 Men’s Physique Olympia qualification. Nick Koeu finished as the runner-up, and third place went to Kirmani Victor in a tie with fourth-place finisher Alonzo Jefferson. The judges awarded Victor the tiebreaker to reach the podium.

Women’s Bodybuilding Winner — Kristina Mendoza

Kristina Mendoza and Jessica E. Martin showed up to Chicago confident with the physiques to back it up. In the end, Mendoza was rewarded with the win.

This may have felt like redemption for Mendoza as she was the runner-up in this contest in 2021.  Martin finished in second place, but she is certainly in the mix for the top spot in any future shows she entered this season.

Women’s Physique Winner — Danielle LaMartina

Danielle LaMartina made her pro debut in the 2022 Chicago Pro to a ninth-place finish. Fast forward to the 2023 Chicago Pro, and she made the biggest jump possible for the gold in her second pro contest.

LaMartina added her name to the contender list against defending Women’s Physique Olympia champion Natalia Abraham Coelho at the 2023 Olympia. The judges had LaMartina in first place unanimously, as they for Nadia Vandal in the runner-up slot.

Fitness Winner — Jodi Boam

Sara Kovach entered with momentum as the 2023 Vancouver Pro champion. However, Jodi Beam overtook Kovach for the gold. Boam was second in the Physique round to fellow Canadian Noemie Champagne-Cloutier. However, Boam took first-place points in the routine round, which counts toward two-thirds of the overall score.

Figure Winner — Autumn Cleveland

Autumn Cleveland finished in second place in the 2023 Vancouver Pro, but her muscles appeared fuller, rounder, and she appeared more confidence on the stage in Tinley. That combination was enough to beat Adela Ondrejovicova, who was already qualified for the Olympia — her Olympia standing is not affected by this placing.

Bikini Winner — Savannah Dolezal

Traditionally, athletes who rank outside the top 15 are listed as tied for 16th, but this contest ranked every competitor down to 21st place. The reasoning for this hasn’t been shared, but Savannah Dolezal was content hoisting the gold in her second pro show.

Dolezal ranked 12th at the 2023 Republic of Texas Pro, so this result may have surprised many. Nonetheless, Dolezal will make her Olympia debut if she chooses to compete in November.

Wellness Winner — Danai Theodoropoulou

Danai Theodoropoulou joined Jones as first-time winners in their pro debuts. This was the Australia native’s first appearance in the IFBB Pro League and will make her Olympia debut thanks to this win.
