Missy Truscott Triumphant at the 2022 Fitness Olympia

Truscott reclaimed the Fitness Olympia after Whitney Jones withdrew before the competition.

The 2022 Fitness Olympia was supposed to include three past champions, but two had to bow out. Whitney Jones and Oksana Grishina had to withdraw before the contest started, leaving Missy Truscott as the only past winner in the lineup. She was standing on center stage with Jaclyn Baker as the final two being compared in the physique round. It was time for the routines, which was two-thirds of the score. Here are the results of the 2022 Fitness Olympia:

2022 Fitness Olympia Recap

All the competitors performed their routines before the field was reduced to the top 10. During the posing round, Alix Small withdrew from the competition for an undisclosed reason. Truscott made her presence known by performing her routine in a shark costume, which was met with loud cheers from the crowd.

Later in the evening, the competitors returned for the awards. After a long and awkward wait, the champion was announced, and it was Truscott, who is now a two-time Fitness Olympia winner. She earned $50,000 for her efforts, as well. Jaclyn Baker finished in second place, and Fitness International champ Ariel Khadr took the bronze medal for third place.
