The 2022 New York Pro was next up on the schedule this season. Aside from Mr. Olympia and Arnold Classic, the New York Pro might be the biggest show over the course of the year. There were nine divisions fighting for titles on Saturday at the Marriott at Glenpointe in Teaneck, NJ. In the end, it was Blessing Awodibu highlighting the show with a victory in Men’s Open.
Awodibu came into the show as the favorite after winning the Indy Pro just last week. This was his return to the stage and now, he was looking for redemption at the NY Pro, where he finished sixth in 2021. There was a late shakeup as Indy Pro runner-up Charles Griffen decided to pull out of the event on Friday.
Sadik Hadzovic also returned to the stage in New Jersey after his Men’s Physique victory in Men’s Physique. Despite already holding a ticket to the Olympia, Hadzovic wanted to prove that he is ready for the biggest stage. Lauralie Chapados was victorious in Bikini while Neil Currey won Classic Physique.
The full results from the show have been announced. There were a total of nine divisions present during the New York Pro. Check out the full breakdown from each event along with the official scorecards from the night.

Blessing Awodibu Interview: Trash Talk, New York Pro, & The Future Of Bodybuilding
Last year Generation Iron had the pleasure of interviewing Blessing Awodibu before his battle at the 2021 New York Pro. He ultimately didn’t take home the first-place prize that year – after much hype leading into the competition. His win this year is a sort of vengeance compared to his package last year. Awodibu has shown incredible improvement – that has been catching many people’s eye including Johnnie O. Jackson as well.
In the above interview, you can gain some insight into Blessing Awodibu’s view on trash talk and hype before a bodybuilding show, the future of the sport and its physiques, and much more.
