It was another rousing show in Ontario.

Written by

As the bodybuilding world continues to rumble toward the 2023 Olympia in Orlando, FL, this November, it first had to make a stop at the 2023 Toronto Pro. In one of the more significant steps for this year’s Olympia qualification, the contest that took place on June 4, 2023, in Toronto, Canada, did not disappoint.

Ten divisions competed at the 2023 Toronto Pro, with the respective winners earning their roster spots at the 2023 Olympia. Because of the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness’s (IFBB) changes to the qualification system, any competitor who is not a previous Olympia winner or who did not finish in the previous edition’s top five, must win a sanctioned 2023 contest, like the Toronto Pro, to qualify.

That is no longer a point of contention for the athletes who enjoyed success in Toronto.

2023 Toronto Pro Results

Here are the winners and final standings from each of the participating divisions at the 2023 Toronto Pro, including a headlining victory for Canadian native Iain Valliere in the Men’s Open class. According to Valliere’s page on NPC News Online, it is the athlete’s second career victory on his home soil after winning the 2022 Vancouver Pro. Valliere will now enter the 2023 Olympia looking to improve upon an 11th-place result from 2022.

The 2023 Olympia is just about five months away, which means the official IFBB contest calendar is staying hot and ready. Over this summer alone, bodybuilders without Olympia berths will have the opportunity to earn their roster spots at contests like the 2023 Texas Pro, the 2023 Chicago Pro, and the 2023 Tampa Pro.

The race seemingly never stops in a chase to the top of the Olympia mountain.
