Andrea Shaw Three-Peats, Wins 2022 Ms. Olympia

The reigning champ gave up no ground, leaving Las Vegas with her crown.

The Ms. Olympia women’s competition has been a big hit for bodybuilding fans since its return in 2020. The 2022 edition was no different; fans waited with rapt anticipation to see if the reigning champion, Andrea Shaw, would defend her title and seek a third victory. 

Shaw showed up and looked confident during pre-judging. She was joined by the soon-to-be-retired Margie Martin, Helle Trevino, and finally Angela Yeo, who few saw as a contender this year. The four athletes returned to the finals at the Zappos Theater to see who would leave Sin City as the Ms. Olympia for 2022.

Shaw retained her title, winning her third consecutive Ms. Olympia, as Angela Yeo scored a runner-up finish in her Olympia debut.
