2022 Chicago Pro Results

2022 Chicago Pro Results

Men’s Open

The Men’s Open class at the Chicago Pro will include 13 athletes this weekend. After coming second to Iain Valliere at the 2022 Vancouver Pro, Antoine Vaillant of Canada is back in action. Valliere elected not to compete this weekend after winning in Vancouver to secure his Olympia qualifying. Vaillant will compete against a tough field of rivals this winter to secure his entrance to Olympia.

Hunter Labrada won the Chicago Pro last year, but he will not defend his title this weekend because he achieved his Olympia qualification with a fourth-place performance at the 2021 Mr. Olympia contest last year, so a new winner will be determined at this event.

Andrea Muzi, a bodybuilder, is expected to challenge Vaillant on stage. He finished fourth at the 2022 California State Pro, won by champion Charles Griffen, in May. The following year, he finished fourth in the 2022 Puerto Rico Pro, won by Hassan Mostafa.

Muzi competed in the Toronto Pro Supershow a week later, finishing third with his best package. Muzi has had a busy year, finishing second at the 2022 Mr. Big Evolution competition in Portugal. Muzi will almost probably qualify for Olympia if he continues to accumulate points by placing high at multiple shows.

Antoine Valliant won gold at the competition’s conclusion, earning him a spot in the Olympics later this year.

Dectric Bo Lewis also made a reappearance this weekend. He offered more muscular separation and a better package than the previous year. After finishing second at the New York Pro in 2021, the bodybuilder soared to notoriety. Dectric Bo Lewis triumphed after a tough battle on stage.

Classic Physique

Tommy Clark is a well-known figure in the Classic Physique division of the IFBB. He set a new record for himself last year by competing in seven shows. After his first four events, he perfected his preparations and won the 2021 Lenda Murray Atlanta Pro Classic Physique title. As a result of this victory, he qualified for Olympia, finishing second at the Kentucky Muscle Pro before placing 16th at the 2021 Olympia.

This weekend, Jonathan T. Pelkey faced up against Tommy on stage. His well-balanced physique and commanding midsection have always made him a threat in any competition.

Pelkey avenged himself from the previous year by winning the 2022 Chicago Pro.
