2023 Chicago Pro Results

The 2023 Chicago Pro is now in the history books, and there was no shortage of excitement and surprises at this show in Tinley, IL. Ten pro divisions held contests, and new stars were born at this show. Let’s take a quick look back at the top five for each division.

Men’s Open

Blessing Awodibu was the pick of many people (and us) to win this show, but he was simply off the mark. Meanwhile, Justin Shier nailed his peak perfectly and he is now one-for-one as an IFBB Pro. He won the Chicago Pro title over 2015 winner Jon DeLaRosa and is now going to the Mr. Olympia. Make sure you check out Muscle Insider’s very own on-site journalist Flex Wendel’s exclusive hard-hitting interview with the champ because it’s one you don’t want to miss. Stan de Longeaux rounded out the top three in this class.

Chris Jones joined Shier as pro debut winners in the 212 category by dominating his show in Chi-town. Jason Nguyen and Mohamed Embaby both looked great as well, but Jones wasn’t going to be denied on this day. Rounding out the top five was Kevin Johnson and Yumon Eaton.

Classic Physique

In the Classic Physique show, Marcus Perry and Matthew Greggo were the last two men standing, and the judges opted to go with Perry, who now has two wins to his credit. He will return to the Olympia for the second straight year. Krimo Ammari rounded out the top three, and they were joined by two Canadians in fourth and fifth – Dylan Bursey and Tony Coke.

Men’s Physique

In the final men’s division, we underestimaged Drew Cullen at this show by predicting him to take third. He would emerge as the champion by showing what could be his best performance to date as a pro. Cullen now moves on to the Men’s Physique Olympia in Orlando this November as a result. Nick Koeu, who we thought would win, finished as the runner-up, and the highest Canadian was Kirmany Victor, who took third.

Women’s Bodybuilding

Well, we got the top three right in Women’s Bodybuilding, but it was the wrong order. Kristina Mendoza was the runner-up at this show in 2021, but she leaves the Windy City as champion in 2023. This is her first pro win. Jessica Martin and Melissa Teich came in second and third, respectively. Canada was represented in fourth place by Kyna Squarey.

Women’s Physique

The Women’s Physique division has been so competitive all year long, and Chicago was no different. No one saw Danielle LaMartina coming, but she emerged from the pack and left the stage as the winner. Nadia Vandal of Canada came in second, and Marie Berouskova rounded out the top three. Our pick was Lisa Kudrey, but she finished this show in tenth place.

Canada went one and two in the Fitness division thanks to Jodi Boam taking the win and Noemir Champagne-Cloutier coming in as the runner-up. Vancouver Pro winner Sara Kovach finished this show in third place, showing just how unpredictable the FItness division is. It’s not only the most entertaining division, it’s among the most competitive.

It took Autumn Cleveland several shows to qualify for the Olympia in 2022, but she wasn’t messing around in 2023. After a second-place finish in Vancouver, she looked much better in Chicago and was awarded the victory and 2023 Figure Olympia qualification. Adela Ondrejovicova was already qualified for the Olympia, and she finished here in second place.

Many of the favorites in the Bikini division were off the mark, but Savannah Dolezal was right on the money, and she is now a champion thanks to her performance this weekend. Lizzie Martinez looked incredible as well, and she was rewarded with second place. Shout out to Canadian Adair Libbrecht, who took the third place slot in this show.

If you’re going to travel from Australia to the United States for a show, only a win will make it worth it. Danal Theodoropoulou did just that by taking the win and Olympia qualification in the Wellness division. This was also her pro debut, making her the third athlete in this show to win in their first contest. Amy Li was in great shape as well, but the judges voted her second in this show. Daniela Deiana rounded out the top three.
