Winner — Yoon Sung Lee

Prior to this show, Yoon Sung Lee was third in the 2023 AGP Men’s Physique Pro show. He apparently learned from that experience and made improvements as they converted his qualification to make his Olympia debut in November 2023. 

Yoon Sung Lee is still allowed to compete in additional pro shows. However, if he scores gold again, the Olympia qualification will not be handed down to the runner-up, effectively blocking another athlete from qualifying for the Olympia.

Second Place — Wang Hsiang

Wang Hsiang made his professional debut at the 2023 District of Taiwan, having earned his pro card by winning the amateur contest at this show. He made a big first impression as the pre-judging round was the only round scored, and all the judges ranked him second overall.

Third Place — Minsu Kim

Like winner Yoon Sung Lee, Minsu Kim is also a native of South Korea and made big improvements since his 10th-place finish at the 2023 AGP Men’s Physique Pro show. This was only his second pro show, and he ascended seven placings between shows.

Winner — Areum Song

Areum Song is a rookie in the IFBB Pro League. This marks her first pro win in just her second pro show. She ranked 11th overall at the 2023 New York Pro. She will now join the rest of the field at the 2023 Bikini Olympia in Orlando this November.

Second Place — Sara Choi

Choi finished as the runner-up for the second time this season. She won silver previously at the 2023 Musclecontest Japan Pro. If she wants to qualify for the Olympia for the third time, she will have to compete at least one more time and secure a win.

Third Place — Uyanga Bataa

Bataa was the 2023 NPC Worldwide Amateur Olympia Korea champion. This was her IFBB Pro League debut. Competing in the pro ranks is a bigger challenge, but she still managed an impressive top-three finish.
