Mostafa gets another shot at the Olympia with the win.

Written by

The 2023 Vancouver Pro took place July 14-16, 2023, in Vancouver, Canada. It featured six divisions — Men’s Open, Classic Physique, Men’s Physique, Bikini, Figure, and Fitness — with each of the respective winners earning qualification for the 2023 Olympia this November in Orlando, FL. After changes to the Olympia qualification system, winning a contest outright is the only means of competing at the Olympia outside of past titles or a top-five finish in the most recent iteration.

The headline winner of the 2023 Vancouver Pro was arguably Hassan Mostafa, who emerged victorious in the Men’s Open class. Mostafa follows this victory after earning his first two career wins in the 2022 Orlando Pro and the 2022 Puerto Rico Pro. The athlete started 2023 by finishing as the Men’s Open runner-up in the 2023 Toronto Pro Supershow and the 2023 Orlando Pro. With the Vancouver Pro victory, Mostafa is slated to officially compete in the Olympia for the second time in his career, per his page on NPC News Online. The athlete previously came in 13th place in the Men’s Open division at the 2021 Olympia.

The 2023 competitive bodybuilding season rolls on. The Vancouver Pro is a midsummer contest, but it is assuredly not the last opportunity for any prospective competitors to earn a place in the 2023 Olympia. On the near horizon, the 2023 Tampa Pro and the 2023 Texas Pro present themselves as the next major shots at bodybuilding glory.
