"Top 10 Bodybuilders to Watch at the Olympia 2023."

Table of Contents

The 2023 Olympia is set to take place on the weekend of Nov. 2-5, 2023, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. It is the 59th Mr. Olympia competition and the most prestigious bodybuilding contest in the world.

The defending champion is an Iranian bodybuilder, Hadi Choopan, who won his first Olympia title in 2022. Hadi Choopan is a bodybuilder with a small height and an incredible physique. He is a very experienced competitor and will be tough to beat in 2023.

Here is our top 10 prediction for the 2023 Mr. Olympia:

Derek Lunsford

Derek Lunsford Mr Olympia 2023

Derek Lunsford is an American bodybuilder who is one of the best bodybuilders in the 212 Category. He took bodybuilding very seriously as Jay Cutler and Phil Heath inspired him, and he began to enjoy bodybuilding. 

Derek Lunsford started his pro bodybuilding career by winning the Tampa Pro Show in 2017 in Men’s Bodybuilding up to 212. He made his Olympia debut in the same year and secured 5th place at the Olympia 2017.

Derek Lunsford got 2nd place at the Olympia 2018 and 2019 in his respective division. At the Olympia 2020, he got 4th place after competing against Shaun Clarida, Kamal Elgargni, and George Peterson.

Derek Lunsford won the first Olympia title at the Olympia 2021 in the 212 Division after beating Shaun Clarida and Kamal Elgargni

In 2022, Lunsford received a special invitation to compete at the Olympia in the Men’s Bodybuilding Open Division, and he did not disappoint anyone and remained runner-up to Hadi Choopan.

Now for the Mr. Olympia title 2023, Derek Lunsford is the most favorite bodybuilder, as Ronnie Coleman predicted him as a winner of Olympia 2023

Hadi Choopan

hadi choopan coach

Hadi Choopan is an Iranian bodybuilder who competes in the Men’s Open Bodybuilding Division. He was born in 1987 in Sepidan County, Fars Province, Iran. 

Hadi Choopan experienced a tough childhood because he spent his childhood in poverty, and these poor conditions resulted in Hadi having to work at an early age. 

Hadi Choopan started his professional bodybuilding career in 2013 by winning the WBPF Asia Championships. He went on to win the WBPF World Bodybuilding Championships in 2013, 2014, and 2015. However, he only competed in these three events during that time.

In 2017, Choopan switched coaches from Ehsan Ne’mati to Hany Rambod. This was a turning point in his career, as he succeeded tremendously. 

He won gold at the 2017 Mr. Olympia Amateur and silver medals at three other competitions later that year. One of these competitions was the 2017 Asia Grand Prix, where he lost to Flex Lewis

However, many people believe that Choopan should have won this competition, and it was at this point he began to be recognized as a top bodybuilder.

Unfortunately, due to visa issues, Choopan could not compete in the United States for several years. This prevented him from competing in some of the biggest competitions, including the Arnold Classic and Mr. Olympia in 2018. However, he was able to resolve these issues in 2019.

Since then, Choopan has continued to be a top contender in bodybuilding. He finished 3rd at the 2019 and 2021 Mr. Olympia.

In 2022, Hadi Choopan beat the two-times Mr. Olympia Big Ramy and secured 1st place at the Olympia 2022. Hadi Choopan is considered one of the favorites to win the title in 2023.

As predicted by the four-time Mr. Olympia winner Jay Cutler, he may be on his way to keeping his title and solidifying his legacy.

Samson Dauda earned his IFBB Pro card by winning the 201 IFBB Amateur Diamond Cup Rome in the 90kg-plus division. Dauda’s Pro bodybuilding debut was at the 2018 EVLS Prague Pro Showdown, where he finished fifth. He then achieved a second-place finish at the 2019 British Grand Prix, beating James Hollingshead.

Dauda gained attention as a serious contender after becoming a runner-up at the 2021 Arnold Classic UK. From that point, he made incremental progress in his career, earning a direct qualification to the 2022 Mr. Olympia with a win at the 2021 EVLS Prague Pro. He still chose to compete at the 2021 Romania Muscle Fest Pro, finishing second.

Dauda predicted the outcome of the 2022 Arnold Classic with near perfection, finishing fourth in the Men’s Open division after competing against Brandon Curry, William Bonac, and Steve Kuclo

He then prepared for the 2022 Mr. Olympia, where he had a sixth-place finish against the best bodybuilders in the world, such as Hadi Choopan, Derek Lunsford, Nick Walker, Brandon Curry, and Big Ramy.

Samson Dauda won the 2023 Arnold Classic, and his consistent improvements suggest he can present a formidable challenge to other bodybuilders at the Olympia 2023.

Curry turned pro in 2008 after winning the NPC USA Championships in both the Heavyweight and Overall categories.

He gained popularity after placing 8th in his first Mr. Olympia appearance in 2011 and 7th in the Arnold Classic Ohio in 2012. 

He won the Arnold Classic Brazil and other shows after that, but it wasn’t until 2016, when he met coach Abdullah Al Otaibi, that Curry started to reach his full potential.

Brandon Curry moved to Kuwait to train at Oxygen Gym under Al Otaibi’s guidance, which helped him pack on many sizes quickly. 

He won several competitions, including the 2017 IFBB Arnold Classic Aus, 2017 IFBB New Zealand Pro, and 2017 IFBB Ferrigno Legacy. He placed 5th in the 2018 IFBB Mr. Olympia, his best performance up to that point.

In 2019, Curry won the Arnold Classic Ohio and Mr. Olympia despite criticisms of lackluster conditioning. 

Due to the 2020 health crisis, he could not appear as the Mr. Olympia winner and felt that it halted his ability to connect with fans and show his worth to the sport. 

In 2021, he was the runner-up to Big Ramy. At Olympia 2022, Brandon Curry got 4th place in the Men’s Open Bodybuilding Division. 

Curry is currently preparing for the 2023 Mr. Olympia competition scheduled for November. He’s doing everything possible to ensure that he will win the title.
