2023 Optimum Classic Pro Results

The 2023 Optimum Classic Pro was held on Saturday, May 20th in Shreveport, Louisiana. The fans got to watch athletes from four IFBB Pro League contests compete for a prestigious spot on the 2023 Olympia stage. Some contests went as expected, and others had surprise winners. Here’s a recap of how everything went down in Shreveport.


Classic Physique

Eric Wildberger Lisboa was coming off a second-place finish to Michael Daboul in the Pittsburgh Pro one week ago. Being that close to qualifying for the Olympia had to be bittersweet, but this win had some Cajun flavor to it. This is Lisboa’s first pro win, and he will now move on to Orlando, FL this fall as one of the best in his division. Tomas Adame-Hernandez came in second place, so the top two went as we predicted before the contest. Barry Irving rounded out the top three. There were no athletes from Canada in this show.

Men’s Physique

Benquil Marigny was already qualified for the Olympia, but he could win this show and keep someone else from qualifying as well. That plan backfired because Derrick Stevenson pulled off the win by a one-point decision from the judges. He finished fifth in this contest one year ago, so this was a great improvement from that. Marigny took second, and the bronze spot belongs to Bhuwan Chauhan of India.

We accurately predicted a second winner in this show. The Bikini division title in this show went to Sierra Swann, who took her third career win. She can now try to improve on her 2022 Olympia appearance, where she finished outside the top 15. Tamekia Carter made this contest an interesting one, but the judges ultimately had her solidly in second place. Gina Scafoglio place third, and Canadian Racquel Hutchinson was in fourth.

Women’s Physique

Spain’s Elena Aviles Romero was sixth in the St. Louis Pro earlier this year, but she made proper adjustments and was able to take a win at this show. She’s in her third pro season, and already has a win to her credit. She will stand alongside Olympia champions Natalia Abraham Coelho and Sarah Villegas, as well as the rest of the elite Women’s Physique competitors at the Olympia. Marie-Solange Essoh took second-place honors at this show, and Ana Harias rounded out the top three. Two Canadians were in this contest. Emilija Margic finished in fourth, and Alyssa Coppolino took eighth.
