After a round of pre-judging, the 2022 Men’s Physique competitors stepped onto the Las Vegas, NV stage to determine whether three-time champion Brandon Hendrickson would become the second man to win a fourth Olympia title.
Ultimately, Erin Banks interrupted the Hendrickson reign and capitalized after debuting on an Olympia stage in 2021.
These are the top five Men’s Physique Olympia competitors of 2022, with their respective earnings.
Erin Banks ($50,000)
Brandon Hendrickson ($20,000)
Diogo Montenegro ($10,000)
Charjo Grant ($7,000)
Edvan Palmeira ($4,000)
Banks’ 2022 Men’s Physique Olympia win wraps up a successful competitive year. He won the 2022 Men’s Physique Arnold Classic in early March 2022. Having placed second second to now-former champion Hendrickson in the 2021 Men’s Physique Olympia, the roles were reversed as Hendrickson took home silver in 2022.
The final comparisons were called out in two groups before determining the eventual placings.
