Joe Weider started this contest so that Mr. Universe winners have someplace else to compete and earn money from.
There is also a female bodybuilder who can be crowned, Ms. Olympia. They are categorized as winners of Fitness Olympia and Figure Olympia for fitness and figure competitors. All four contests occur during the same weekend.
From 1994 to 2003, and again in 2012, a Masters Olympia was also crowned. Starting in 2016, a new division called Classic Physique was introduced. Danny Hester was the inaugural champion in Classic Physique division.
Chief Olympia Officer Dan Solomon explains, “Despite constant changes in the global fitness community, we’ve remained laser-focused, growing the Olympia in every way possible, with increases in overall sponsorships, expo attractions, prize money and stage production.”
