As the countdown to the 2023 Mr. Olympia contest in Orlando, Florida, draws closer, reigning champion Hadi Choopan and former titleholder Brandon Curry are leaving no stone unturned in their quest for bodybuilding greatness.
These two titans of the Men’s Open division have recently shared their monstrous physique updates, setting the stage for an epic showdown in November.
The landscape of the Men’s Open division has seen its fair share of turbulence since the conclusion of last year’s Mr. Olympia.
Stepping into the void left by Elssbiay was Hadi Choopan, a relentless competitor who had consistently placed no lower than fourth at the prestigious Olympia event.
Meanwhile, former champion Brandon Curry, who finished fourth at last year’s Mr. Olympia, demonstrated that he possessed the requisite size, shape, and fullness to stand tall among the competition, including second and third-place finishers Derek Lunsford and Nick Walker.
Adding to the intrigue of the 2023 Mr. Olympia are the new contenders in the Men’s Open division, such as Chinedu Andrew “Jacked” Obiekea and Michal “Krizo” Krizanek, who have been making their presence felt.
The bodybuilding community is abuzz with anticipation, eager to see how the competition will unfold this year.
Hadi Choopan’s Battle Cry Against Photoshop and a Posing Update
In a series of striking poses, including the most muscular, back lat spread, and back double biceps, Hadi Choopan displayed his dedication and hard work.
He implored his followers not to engage in the deceptive practice and emphasized his commitment to authenticity.
Hadi Choopan’s message was clear: he does not alter his images or videos using Photoshop or any other editing tools.
In Hadi Choopan’s own words, “I don’t understand cheating. I don’t know what cheating is, and I don’t need to cheat.”
His commitment to integrity and authenticity resonates with fans who admire the sport for its dedication and hard work.
Brandon Curry’s Astonishing Physique Update
While Brandon Curry has maintained a relatively low profile in the lead-up to the 2023 Mr. Olympia, his coach, Abdullah Alotaibi, recently treated fans to a tantalizing glimpse of Brandon Curry’s physique, which left no room for doubt about his readiness for the competition.
In a caption that hinted at the impending showdown, Alotaibi wrote, “It’s 8 weeks out… soon to bring the heat… be ready…!” The comment section of the post provided further validation, as Brandon Curry’s coach confirmed that the picture was taken just days before its posting.
He would become only the second man in history to reclaim a Mr. Olympia title that he had previously surrendered.
As the countdown continues and the anticipation builds, one thing is clear: the 2023 Mr. Olympia will be a showcase of unparalleled dedication, fierce competition, and a testament to the indomitable spirit of bodybuilders like Hadi Choopan and Brandon Curry.
These titans of the Men’s Open division are poised to leave an indelible mark on the history of bodybuilding, and fans around the world eagerly await their showdown in Orlando, Florida.
