Mr. Olympia invites bodybuilders

Mr. Olympia 2018 Shawn Rhoden.

Mr. Olympia 2018 himself, Shawn Rhoden, is coming to the Philippines to give men and women a chance to compete professionally in the hopes of kickstarting their journey to Mr. Olympia. The Shawn Rhoden Classic Philippines is the biggest, most prestigious bodybuilding event in the country, happening on 8 December at the Theatre in Solaire.

In this realm, Mr. Olympia is the most coveted title. The journey of course is tough.

Athletes need to compete in a series of amateur competitions sanctioned by the National Physique Committee, a recognized International Federation of Bodybuilding (IFBB) organization to accommodate amateur athletes’ competitions, in order to meet the requirements needed to earn the IFBB Pro Card.

This year will be the first that the Shawn Rhoden Classic will be an IFBB Pro Qualifier. Five judges will be flown in for the historic event. This means the competitors will have a chance at winning one of the IFBB Pro Cards in six different categories: Men’s Bodybuilding, Men’s Physique, Classic Physique, Women’s Physique, Women’s Figure and Women’s Bikini.
