This event will accompany the amateur fitness, figure, bikini, wellness, physique, classic physique, and bodybuilding open show on Saturday October 1st in what will be the biggest fitness weekend in Western Canada this fall. Furthermore, a natural fitness and bodybuilding event will take place on October 2nd, 2022 at the same venue.

Family, friends and supporters from around the world will be able to watch the event on pay-per-view featuring HD quality video and live commentating by Scott Welch from Muscle Insider.

After a 5 year history of the Vancity Showdown taking place in Vancouver, show promoter Corey Swiergosz spoke on why the time was right to add the IFBB Pro’s to the Show:

“For years the Vancity Showdown has been incredibly well received by the fitness/bodybuilding community and turned into one of the biggest 2 day fitness events of the fall season each year. With the move to the Grand Villa Casino in Burnaby, BC I wanted to turn this event into a world class and there is no better way than to do it with the top professional athletes in the business.”

For anyone that is unfamiliar, the IFBB Professional league is the highest level of sport within the bodybuilding community and can be seen at the “NHL” or “NFL” or professional bodybuilding.

This announcement comes at a time in which the fans and athletes of 212 Men’s Bodybuilding has been looking for a return to western Canada and another opportunity to qualify for the Mr. Olympia contest. The Texas Pro this coming weekend and the Legion Sports Festival October 7th, 2022 are the only 2 other events in North America this year that grant the opportunity for the winner to get qualified for the Mr. Olympia and obtain points for placing 2nd-5th.
