RAMON DINO: BRAZILIAN CLASSIC PHYSIQUE SUPERSTAR

CHRIS BUMSTEAD THE UNDISPUTED KING OF CLASSIC PHYSIQUE!
THE MOST DOMINANT MAN ON THE 2022 OLYMPIA STAGE There were some fierce battles onstage at the last Olympia among the various men's divisions. In Men's Physique, three-time Olympia champ Brandon Hendrickson squared off against eventual winner Erin Banks. The 212 division saw two former O champs, Kamal Elgargni and Shaun Clarida, face a vastly improved Angel Calderon Frias from Spain, with Clarida recapturing his title. And in the Mr. Olympia, it went down to the wire between Derek Lunsford and Hadi Choopan, with The Persian Wolf walking away with the Sandow trophy. But with all due respect to the incredible newcomers Ramon \"Dino\" Queiroz from Brazil and Germany's Urs \"The Miracle Bear\" Kalecinski, 27-year-old Chris Bumstead won his fourth Classic Physique Olympia title the minute he stepped onstage. Many had felt his condition had slipped a notch from his win in 2020 to 2021, but at a little over 6-foot-1 and 240 pounds, C-Bum was shredded, dry and deeply separated to a degree we had never seen before. He oozed a quiet confidence with a smile, and the crowd went bonkers with his every move.
