Samson Dauda claimed gold in the Men’s Open headliner at the 2023 EVLS Prague Pro!

The highly anticipated 2023 EVLS Prague Pro quickly turned into one of the most stacked events of the year. This 2024 Olympia-qualifying event took place in Prague, Czech Republic on November 18, 2023, and featured the headlining Men’s Open division as well as the Classic Physique, Men’s 212 Bodybuilding, Men’s Physique, Bikini, and Figure categories. 

Samson Dauda, who just finished third at the 2023 Mr. Olympia competition continued his European tour this weekend. Just days ago, he claimed gold against his teammates Behrooz Tabani and Marcello De Angelis at the 2023 Romania Muscle Fest Pro.

The pressure was on for athletes to earn their respective qualifications for 2024 Mr. Olympia. The IFBB Pro League recently announced that only the top three finishers of the Men’s Open Mr. Olympia will now receive automatic qualifications.

 

Stay tuned for the show’s results, winners, and official scorecards, which will be announced and detailed here on Saturday afternoon. Fitness Volt will update this article as the 2023 EVLS Prague Pro unfolds.

2023 EVLS Prague Pro Results Breakdown

Men’s Open

Fans were thrilled for this weekend’s event thanks to the stacked headlining Men’s Open division. Samson Dauda, who finished third at the 2023 Olympia show, continues to bet on himself, risking his status and momentum. His latest victory saw him reign supreme over Behrooz Tabani and Marcello De Angelis at last week’s 2023 Romania Muscle Fest Pro. During prejudging and tonight’s finals, Dauda commanded center stage with a seemingly tighter look, especially from the back.

However, he faced stiff competition, most notably from defending Prague Pro champ and seventh-place Olympia finisher, Michal ‘Krizo’ Krizanek. Krizo has proven himself as an elite Open talent, having made strides in his conditioning, posing, and muscle density since last year.

During the finals, it was clear Krizo brought a better look and pushed Dauda on stage. In the end, “The Nigerian Lion” secured another big win, preventing second-place finisher Krizo from earning his qualification. Meanwhile, Rubiel “Neckzilla” Mosquera smashed expectations in his Pro debut after earning his IFBB Pro card yesterday, nabbing a highly impressive bronze medal.

Classic Physique

It was a dog fight in Prague, with Olympia contenders Urs Kalecinski and Michael Daboul looking for the knockout punch. “The Miracle Bear” has been on a roll since placing third on the 2023 Mr. Olympia stage. A week ago, he secured gold dominantly at the Texas State Pro. Continuing his streak, Kalecinski brought on all comers with an even tighter package this weekend.

Michael Daboul is another top Classic Physique threat whose symmetry, proportions, and conditioning have been lauded in the IFBB Pro League. He recently took sixth on the 2023 Olympia stage, three spots from Kalecinski. While it was close, the leg volume and definition of Kalecinski carried him to a second straight victory! Michael Daboul placed second and Alexander Westermeier claimed third place.

Men’s 212 Bodybuilding

An exciting battle took over the venue, featuring a pair of Men’s 212 Bodybuilding standouts. Ahmad Ashkanani, who finished fifth on the 2023 Olympia stage, continues to stay active. Equipped with freak factor and amazing back detail, he’s a tough out for any competitor, as was the case tonight. Just like Samson Dauda, Ashkanani also competed at the 2023 Romania Muscle Fest Pro last week and won.

Meanwhile, the proportions and conditioning of Christian Zagarella caught the judges’ attention early on in prejudging. Christian has quickly made a name for himself in the growing category. He attempted to take out Ashkanani last weekend at the 2023 Romania Muscle Fest Pro but was unsuccessful in second place. Despite his best efforts once again, Ahmad Ashkanani took gold. Christian Zagarella and Lucas Garcia finished second and third.

Men’s Physique

Men’s Physique contenders brought their best on Saturday. During prejudging, Miroslav Juricek emerged as a frontrunner to watch. His completeness and back definition stood out during comparisons. Miroslav entered this event with steam, having recently claimed the 2023 Romania Muscle Fest Pro title.

Opposite of Juricek was Ondrej Kmostak, who looked to have brought his most shredded physique to date. With capped shoulders and a pronounced X-frame, he gave Juricek all he could handle toward the end of the finals. Ondrej last finished seventh place at the 2019 Romania Muscle Fest Pro. After a close battle, Miroslav Juricek took first place. Ondrej Kmostak and Furkan Er finished second and third.
