There has only been one Olympia champion in the short history of the Wellness division. Francielle Mattos aimed to keep her two-year streak as the division’s champion intact heading into the finals of the 2023 Wellness Olympia in Orlando, FL. Isabelle Nunes, who was the lone athlete alongside Mattos in the final callout during prejudging, wanted to hear “and new” at the end of this competition.
The final round for the Wellness division was the penultimate contest in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando on Friday, Nov. 3, 2023. The top 10 Wellness competitors were introduced to the crowd before the final comparisons were made by head judge Sandy Williamson. At the conclusion of the contest, the scorecards reflected Francielle Mattos as the 2023 Wellness Olympia champion. Below are the full results:

Mattos and Nunes were front and center in the second of the two callouts in the final, as many expected given their showdown during prejudging. Individual presentations followed the final comparisons of the top 10 athletes.
Only one point separated the top two Wellness athletes. However, one point and infinite points are the same for a defending champion — Francielle Mattos scored the three-peat to remain the division’s only-ever Olympia champion.
