Inaugural Men’s Physique Olympia Showdown Preview

No one can deny the growth and popularity of the men’s physique division of late and if anyone did, then having it represented at Olympia weekend certainly answers any questions. With the MPD and the WPD making their inaugural appearance at the industry’s largest stage, it appears that an alternative to the larger bodybuilding physiques – and the critics who claimed that the mass has gone overboard – is here to stay.

16 competitors have qualified by winning a show this year, as well as the top five in the standings who have not, to make this a deep and interesting line-up once the official cards are released.
