Men’s Physique Winner — Mauro Fialho Garcia Jr.
This was Garcia’s second pro show, and he left the stage with his first win. He qualified for the 2023 Men’s Physique Olympia as well. That contest will be held on Nov. 2-5, 2023, in Orlando, FL. He received a perfect score from the judges in this single-round contest.
Second Place — Alessandro Cavagnola
Cavagnola was making his first appearance of 2023 at this show. He was in the 2022 Men’s Physique Olympia lineup, but he placed out of the top 15. This is his second top-two finish. His other came when he won the 2021 Legion Sports Fest Pro Men’s Physique title.
Third Place — Josh Bridgman
Bridgman was sixth in this contest one year ago, so he improved on that placing, but he’s still on the hunt for a victory and Olympia qualification. This is his second top-three finish in five pro shows thus far in his two-year pro career.

Bikini Division Winner — Eszter Oczella
Oczella is in her second pro season, and this is her first win. The Hungarian competitor was in the 2022 Bikini Olympia, but she placed out of the top 15. Like Garcia in the Men’s Physique show, she received straight first-place votes from the judges.
Second Place — Noora Mahonen
Mahonen took the 2022 season off, and this was her first appearance in 2023. She had two pro victories in 2021 but hasn’t won a show since then. If she wants to return to the Olympia stage for the second time in her career, she will have to compete again. Only contest winners can earn Olympia qualifications from this point on.
Third Place — Lisa Reith
Prior to this competition, Reith’s highest finish in three pro shows was seventh at the 2021 Bigman Weekend Pro. This is her first top-three finish in the IFBB Pro League, which could be a confidence booster in future shows if she competes again.
The next Men’s Physique pro show is the Wasatch Warrior in Salt Lake City, UT, on Saturday, Apr. 15. The next Bikini division event will also be at that contest. That same day, there will also be a Bikini event at the AGP Korea contest in Gyeonggi, South Korea.
