Vitor Chaves took Men’s Physique gold and Jessica Wilson left with the Bikini title.
Written by Doug Murray
With five different shows taking place around the world this weekend, it’s a busy time for the IFBB Pro League. The 2023 DC Pro show, which took place June 10 in Alexandria, Virginia, featured athletes from the Bikini and Men’s Physique categories.
All roads lead to this year’s 2023 Mr. Olympia contest. Unlike last year, the venue has moved from Las Vegas and will now take place in Orlando, Florida inside the Orange County Convention Center. There are some notable differences with the IFBB Pro League schedule this year. The point system has been removed. With that in mind, athletes must earn their way to Olympia by winning a pro show.
The winner of this weekend’s Men’s Physique contest will have a shot at standing against Erin Banks on the 2023 Olympia stage, who recently claimed gold in a hard-fought battle against Brandon Hendrickson. As for the Bikini division, the winner this weekend will face off with the current reigning Bikini Olympia Maureen Blanquisco.
With plenty on the line, fans were eager to name their picks. Charjo Grant stands out as a clear-cut favorite given that he won this competition in 2021. Meanwhile, he’ll be met with resistance from Vitor Chaves, who picked up recent runner-up placings at the 2023 New York Pro and Miami Muscle Beach Pro show. This will also be Steven Cao‘s first time on stage this year after winning the Mile High Pro in 2022.
