2023 Masters Olympia Roster Revealed


This year, the Masters Olympia will return after an 11-year absence, taking place in Cluj-Napoca, Romania on Aug. 26-27, 2023. It will feature 10 competitive divisions and exclusively showcase bodybuilding athletes who are at least 40 years of age. With the early-April application process finished, it is now clear who will be traveling to Eastern Europe this coming summer.

On Apr. 25, 2023, an Olympia TV YouTube video featuring Jay Cutler and other bodybuilding figures like Terrick El Guindy, Steve Weinberger, and Alina Popa revealed the complete roster for the 2023 Masters Olympia. The overall prize purse for the participating competitors will be $229,000.

The headline division of the contest might be the Men’s Open class. Recent months have seen speculation about athletes such as Cutler, Johnnie Jackson, and Dexter Jackson (the last Masters Olympia champion in 2012) potentially joining the competition. As confirmed by this roster reveal, the seasoned veterans, who are in the midst of their respective retirements, will not feature at the 2023 Masters Olympia.

However, an established veteran and active titan in the main Olympia field, Kamal Elgargni, is now confirmed to be part of the Masters Olympia roster. Elgargni is most notably coming off a third-place result in the 212 division at the 2022 Mr. Olympia. He will compete in the Men’s Open at the return of the Masters Olympia. Elgargni may maintain this competitive set-up to prepare for the upcoming 2023 Mr. Olympia. The athlete previously clarified this would be his plan to stay consistent with his training and nutrition.
