2020 Olympia Saturday Finals Report — Mr. Olympia, Classic Physique, Men’s Physique & Bikini

Here are the winners for the 2020 Olympia Classic Physique, Bikini, Men's Physique, and Mr. Olympia.

Saturday night at the Olympia on a normal year is exciting and symbolic. Fans are always excited to see the best bodies in fitness competing. For the athletes, it’s symbolic because it’s the culmination of weeks’ worth of training and dieting so they can present the most muscle and the best conditioning on bodybuilding’s largest stage. 

2020’s edition of the Olympia serves as so much more than that. After cancellations, rescheduling the event, and then moving it cross-country with only a few weeks to do so, Saturday night serves as a celebration of overcoming numerous forms of adversity to reach this point.

The Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida was the host building for this celebration as well as the crowning of multiple world champions in bodybuilding and fitness. Among those in the crowd was Honorary Olympia ambassador Shaquille O’Neal, who called the competitors at the Olympia “the greatest athletes in the world” when he was on commentary.

Here’s a breakdown of the 2020 Olympia Saturday Finals Report:

If you couldn’t tune in and missed some of the action, don’t sweat it. Check out our video recap, which covers all of the division winners of the 2020 Mr. O. 

2020 Men’s Physique Olympia Finals

The last two champions of Men’s Physique are current champ Raymont Edmonds and 2018 winner Brandon Hendrickson. The final callout this morning had them standing alone in comparison for several minutes, so this is obviously the top two going into the Finals.

The pre-judging of this contest matched the buildup and hype. Chris Bumstead and Breon Ansley are the last two champions of this division, and they faced off again as two of the last four men standing at this event. This rivalry is among the most followed in the sport right now. They were joined in the final callout by Terrence Ruffin and Alex Cambronero.

2020 Mr. Olympia Finals Recap

All 16 men returned to the stage for a posedown, which is a break from tradition because it used to be the top 10 that had this honor. Then the moment everyone was waiting for finally happened. 2020 Arnold Classic Champion William Bonac placed fifth. Hadi Choopan of Iran would be announced in fourth place. The bronze medal and prize money went to Heath. After a long wait for Curry and Elssbiay, “Big Ramy” would emerge victorious and be named the 16th Mr. Olympia.

Elssbiay, hailing from Egypt, is the first non-American to win the title since British champion Dorian Yates in 1997. This is also the first time since 1981-84 that we had four different champions in four years. Heath won in 2017, Shawn Rhoden won in 2018, Curry took the title last year, and now Elssbiay holds the world title of bodybuilding this year.
