2022 Sheru Classic Italy Pro Results — Marco Ruz, Kristina Brunauer Lead the Victors

With their wins, Ruz and Brunauer will now get their chances to make an impression on the judges at the respective 2022 Mr. and Ms. Olympia.

As the 2022 Mr. and Ms. Olympia begin to inch closer and closer, many bodybuilding competitions leading up to mid-December may become more vital in that journey. One of those road markers was the recent 2022 International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness (IFBB) Sheru Classic Italy Pro League contest, which took place on June 25, 2022, in Rome, Italy.

This year’s Sheru Classic Italian Pro featured three competitive divisions — Men’s Classic Physique, Men’s Physique, and Bikini. The winners of these categories were Marco Ruz (Classic Physique), Ali Bilal (Men’s Physique), and Kristina Brunauer (Bikini). With their respective victories, each of these athletes has earned automatic qualification for the upcoming Mr. and Ms. Olympia. Meanwhile, the second to fifth-place finishers in each division all earned points for their own hopeful qualifications. Both contests will occur on December 16-18, 2022, in Las Vegas, NV.

Ruz’s victory follows a recent relative hot streak. The French athlete previously most notably came in fourth place during the 2021 New York Pro. Before that, he came in second in the Middleweight division at the National Physique Committee (NPC) Worldwide Amateur Olympia. The size of Ruz’s muscles, his conditioning, and his work with body parts like his arms, legs, back, and abs were apparent. Ruz has never competed in a Mr. Olympia before and will now get the opportunity this December.

In the other competitive Men’s division on hand at the 2022 Italy Pro, another athlete enjoyed one of the better finishes of their career. Here are the full results:
