Hadi Choopan is the winner of the 2022 Mr. Olympia. After a dynamite overall performance from all the top Men’s Open contenders in Las Vegas, NV, Choopan captured his first career Mr. Olympia title.

The athlete finally broke through and stood on top of the podium on Dec. 17, 2022.

Here are the top five athletes in the Men’s Open division at the 2022 Mr. Olympia and the respective prize money they earned:
