How to Watch the 2020 Olympia — Competition and Expo

From the Men's Open to the Amateur O to the expo — here's the info you need so you won't miss a minute of the action.

Like so many sports in 2020, the Olympia has undergone a couple of major changes. First, it was announced that the event would be moved from September to December. Then, with 30 days to get it done, the Olympia team moved the event from Las Vegas to Orlando, FL. 

Despite the uncertainty and change in locations, the biggest event in bodybuilding is set to take place on Dec. 17-20, 2020. The Mr. Olympia, the premier bodybuilding competition, will see hundreds of competitors across multiple divisions compete. If you’re not able to attend in Orlando, here’s how you can watch the show to keep up on the action.
