Winner — German Pastor
This was Pastor’s first competition of 2023. He scored his first professional win and his first Classic Physique Olympia qualification. Prior to this contest, Pastor’s best pro finish was second at the 2021 Mr. Big Evolution Pro.
Pastor took the entire 2022 season off to make improvements, and that choice paid off. The judges scored one round in this contest, and Pastor received straight first-place votes.
Second Place — Andreas Fotiadis
This was Fotiadis’ first contest of 2023 and ranked second overall on all the judges’ scorecards. Fotiadis will have to enter another show and win if he wants to qualify for the Olympia. He posted on his Instagram page that he wasn’t ready to reveal which contest he would enter next.
Third Place — Emanuele Ricotti
Ricotti was one of the more seasoned competitors on the roster. He won the 2022 Puerto Rico Pro and competed on the 2022 Olympia stage. However, he finished out of the top 15 on that stage in Las Vegas, NV. This is only the start of his second season as a pro, so the best of him could be yet to come.
