1st Place — Phil Clahar

This is Phil Clahar’s first professional win, but it didn’t come without controversy. Mostafa won the pre-judging round, but Clahar ranked first in the final round by the judges. This resulted in a tied score overall.

According to the IFBB Pro League, in the event of a tie, the final decision is made by “relative placing,” meaning the contestant who finished higher in the final round is awarded the higher overall placing. In this case, it was Phil Clahar.

This win puts Clahar in a unique situation. “He was already invited to compete in the 2023 Masters Olympia in Romania on Aug. 26-27, where the winner will also qualify for the 2023 Mr. Olympia. Clahar can either skip the Masters Olympia and focus on his return trip to Florida, or he can compete in both contests”. He is the only athlete on the Open Masters Olympia roster who has already qualified for the 2023 Mr. Olympia.

2nd Place — Hassan Mostafa

Mostafa was the 2022 Orlando Pro champion and finished as the runner-up for his second straight contest. He also won silver behind Iain Valliere at the 2023 Toronto Pro Supershow one month before this contest.

Only 2023 pro show winners move on to the Olympia this season, so Mostafa will have to earn gold in another contest to qualify for the 2023 Mr. Olympia.

3rd — Stan de Longeaux

“Stanimal” scored his highest placing as a Men’s Open competitor in this contest. Prior to this, he finished fourth at the 2022 Legion Sports Fest Pro. The French competitor started his pro career in Classic Physique, where he finished as high as 10th at the 2019 Olympia.

The next Men’s Open show on the 2023 IFBB schedule is the 2023 Mr. Big Evolution on Sunday, July 9, 2023, in Portugal. The exact location of the show has not yet been announced by the IFBB Pro League at the time of this article’s publication.
