Mr. Olympia is the commonly known name and title of Joe Weider’s Olympia Fitness and Performance Weekend. It is considered to be the biggest bodybuilding competition in the world and many fans eagerly await its arrival every year.

Mr. Olympia 2020 comes close to an end with Egypt’s Big Ramy being crowned the Mr. Olympia this year. Many Indians have competed in the past such as Anand Arnold who was crowned the Mr. Olympia (Wheelchair) in 2018.

However, Anand Arnold’s participation in 2020 did not fare well as he faced stiff competition from Harold Kelley of USA. He was the winner of Mr. Olympia (Wheelchair) 2019 and cemented his reign in 2020 too.

Bhuwan Chauhan was set to compete in the Men’s Physique category for Mr. Olympia 2020. He is among the many few Indians to hold the prestigious International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness (IFBB) pro card. However, he failed to qualify for the finals, and the winner for 2020 was Brandon Hendrickson. The latter took down Raymont Edmonds, who was the winner of 2019, and reclaimed his title.

December 20 will have an Olympia Superstar Seminar which concludes this year's bodybuilding event. The seminar has competitors from all divisions of the Olympia contest to discuss the Weekend's events after the finals.

Aside from the Mr. Olympia, Arnold Classic is a popular bodybuilding and strongman event that takes place every year. This gives many bodybuilders an opportunity to showcase their mettle in the sport and possibly earn sponsors and an IFBB pro card to compete in the Mr or Ms. Olympia competitions.
