Visa-Home Ad

Saturday’s Olympia prejudging on Dec. 17, 2022, saw three-time reigning champion Chris Bumstead in pole position to capture another Classic Physique division title. Ultimately, he only really faced resistance from challenger Ramon Rocha Queiroz, as the two were the last athletes standing in Las Vegas, NV. In the end, to no one’s surprise, Bumstead won the 2022 Classic Physique Olympia championship (2019-2022).

Here are the top five athletes in the Classic Physique division at the 2022 Mr. Olympia and the respective prize money they earned:

2022 Classic Physique Olympia Results

Chris Bumstead — $50,000 | 2022 Classic Physique Olympia Champion

Ramon Rocha Queiroz — $20,000

Urs Kalecinski — $10,000

Breon Ansley — $6,000

Mike Sommerfeld — $4,000

Bumstead’s win gives him his fourth straight Classic Olympia title (2019-2022) as he continues to dominate a bodybuilding division that was only established in 2016. Notably, in his last Classic Physique appearance before a transition to the 212 in the year 2023, former two-time champion (2017-2018) Breon Ansley notched a fourth-place result.

With the field narrowed down to 10 participating athletes, here are the results of the callouts from the Finals of the Classic Physique division at the 2022 Olympia:

Callout 1

Michael Daboul

Fabian Mayr

Wesley Vissers

Alex Cambronero

Callout 2

Breon Ansley

Urs Kalecinski

Ramon Rocha Queiroz

Terrence Ruffin

Mike Sommerfeld

Chris Bumstead

Bumstead and Rocha Queiroz held the center position in the last callout. The top five athletes would then work through their own usual individual posing routines to push for the Classic Physique Olympia title. Here was that group of five in no particular order:

Breon Ansley

Mike Sommerfeld

Chris Bumstead

Urs Kalecinski

Ramon Rocha Queiroz

With the routines concluded, it was evident the title would come down to Bumstead and Rocha Queiroz. As a part of the lead commentary team, Phil Heath asserted he believed Bumstead would win his fourth straight title before the final judgment passed through, and that assertion, likely rooted in Heath’s own Olympia experience, came true.

Here is the entire schedule for the 2022 Olympia weekend, and here’s how to keep up with the action. (Note: All listed times are in Pacific Standard time.)
