Classic Physique Athletes to Watch

Below are athletes worth keeping an eye on as potential first callout choices:

Emanuele Ricotti

Ricotti may be the favorite for this contest. He won the 2022 Puerto Rico Pro to qualify for that year’s Olympia, where he finished outside of the top 15 in his Olympia debut. Winning this show offers five months of preparation before the 2023 Olympia — plenty of time for Ricotti to make improvements and break into the top 15.

Adam Bomert

Bomert has tasted victory before and will have many of his supporters in attendance. He won the 2022 Romania Muscle Fest Pro to qualify for the 2022 Olympia. Like Ricotti, Bomert wants to break into the Olympia top 15, and this show is his opportunity to qualify for the 2023 Olympia.

Ayham Alaws

Alaws is a second-year pro that has had a wide range of finishes so far. His highest placing was fourth at the 2021 Bigman Weekend Pro, but he finished tied for 15th at the 2022 Empro Pro. This show could be an opportunity for him to make himself noticed and gauge his progress. This is his first contest of the 2023 season.

Bikini Athletes to Watch 

The Bikini division is stacked, and anyone could reasonably reach first callouts, but the three below are likely top contenders:

Zsofia Rexa Molnar

Molnar has already qualified for the 2023 Olympia thanks to her victory at the 2023 Tropicarium Budapest Pro. Her performance at this show could help her isolate what improvements to make before heading to Orlando in November. 

Additionally, a win here would block another athlete from qualifying for the 2023 Olympia. For the 2023 season, only pro show winners get to move on to Orlando.

Kristina Brunauer

Brunauer has been pro since 2021 and has won two pro shows so far. She was in the 2022 Bikini Olympia, but didn’t break the top 15. Brunauer made her first 2023 appearance at the Tropicarium Budapest Pro, finishing in 12th place.

Lisa Reith

Reith was the runner-up at the 2023 Tropicarium Budapest Pro. She also scored bronze at the 2023 1 Bro Pro show. She has been in the mix for gold but hasn’t closed. She has the quality physique needed to win this show, so it’s a matter of whether she brings her best in her third show of the 2023 season.
