The 2023 Mr. Olympia finals witnessed an exciting culmination, crowning Derek Lunsford and Chris Bumstead as the victors in men's open bodybuilding and classic physique, respectively.

Men's Open Bodybuilding

In a historic win, Derek Lunsford became the first-ever two-time Mr. Olympia champion, earning the prestigious 2023 Mr. Olympia and People's Champion award. Lunsford, who has previously won the 212 Mr. Olympia, made waves this year, striking a balance between size, structure, and conditioning that earned him the coveted title.

Close behind was Hadi Choopan who, much to several attendees' dissatisfaction, left the stage before the final awards were announced. Despite his departure, Choopan's intense conditioning piqued interest, although it lacked against Lunsford's overall package.

Rounding out the top three was Samson Dauda, whose imposing physique earned him a commendable third place, followed by Brandon Curry and Andrew Jacked in fourth and fifth places, respectively. Curry's last-minute health complications were adequately overcome, while Jacked's performance showcased noteworthy improvements.

Moreover, Urs Käser made a mark at the third place with his on-point conditioning, while Terence Ruffin rounded out the top five.
