0

Across the board, in a historic Olympia weekend on Dec. 16-17, 2022, it was a very profitable competition for bodybuilding’s top superstars. For example, in capturing his first-ever Mr. Olympia title on the Las Vegas, NV, stage, Iranian athlete Hadi Choopan took home the grand prize of $400,000. Meanwhile, former 212 champion Derek Lunsford made $150,000 for finishing in second place in the Men’s Open division — triple his earnings from the 212 victory in 2021.

Overall, in an eventful Olympia featuring 11 divisions, only five athletes retained their title from the year prior. At the same time, six new champions (completely new or winners from previous years) stood on top of their respective podiums. Here is an overview of the awarded money awarded through each 2022 Olympia division.

Without the Wheelchair division factored in, the total awarded money for the 2022 Olympia was $1,561,000. Choopan, in particular, likely appreciates his Mr. Olympia victory from a financial perspective. He won $100,000 when finishing third in 2021. His first career Mr. Olympia title in 2022 saw him quadruple those earnings while simultaneously earning a place amongst bodybuilding’s greats.
