Men’s Open Winner — Andrea Presti

Pulling off a three-peat in the pro ranks is no easy feat, but Andrea Presti has done that at this contest, having won it in 20212022, and 2023. These are also the only three wins he has to his credit, but all wins are equally leading up to the Olympia, and Presti can now enter the contest in Orlando thanks to placing first here.

The surprise of the contest may be silver-medalist Roman Fritz, who seemed in contention to score gold throughout both rounds of judging.

212 Division Winner — Roman Iushchenko

It’s not often that there are more competitors in the 212 division than in the Men’s Open, but that was the case in Portugal. Roman Iushchenko was the top 212 finisher in his first pro contest in four years. He was last seen onstage at the 2019 Romania Muscle Fest Pro, where he ranked 16th. This win qualifies Iushchenko for the 212 Olympia for the first time.

Classic Physique Winner — Antoine Loth

Loth started the year as an amateur. He won his pro card at the 2023 NPC Worldwide Amateur Olympia Spain contest. He placed second twice at the 2023 Sheru Classic Italy Pro and the 2023 Empro Pro, followed by a fifth-place finish at the 2023 Fitness Authority Poland Pro. This marks Loth’s first pro win and advances him to the Olympia.

Men’s Physique Winner — Sidy Pouye

Sidy Pouye previously qualified for the 2023 Olympia via his 2023 Sheru Classic Italian Pro victory. This marks his second consecutive pro win, and successfully blocked another competitor from qualifying for the 2023 Olympia. No Olympia qualification was awarded for Men’s Physique at this show as qualifications do not pass down this season. 

Women’s Bodybuilding Winner — Alcione Barreto

Three women were originally scheduled to compete in the Women’s Bodybuilding division at this contest, but only two made it to the stage — Lidija Huri Zaza was absent. Alcione Barreto ranked ahead of Anastasia Leonova of Russia to advance to the 2023 Ms. Olympia contest. 

Women’s Physique Winner — Caroline Alves Dos Santos

Caroline Alves Dos Santos made her season debut here and stamped her ticket to Orlando. This was her first career pro win. Birgit Andersch of Austria didn’t let the champ hoist the trophy without a battle but had to settle for silver. The third-place finisher was Germany’s Uta Kohler-Sptizbart.

Figure Winner — Kristen McGregor

This was McGregor’s fourth pro show of her career and her first of the 2023 season. All of the judges gave McGregor first-place votes to award her a 2023 Olympia qualification. Spain’s Rejoice Godwin finished in second place, and rounding out the top three was Nadine Claudia Huber.

Bikini Winner — Tatiana Lanovenko

Both pre-judging and finals were scored for all divisions. Lanovenko qualified for the 2023 Bikini Olympia with this win via a perfect score from the judges. Chantal Hill of Spain won the silver medal, and Kristina Brunauer scored for third place. 

Wellness Winner — Lisa Meiswinkel

The Wellness division came down to Lisa Meiswinkel and Catia Moreira, the highest-finishing athlete from the host country out of all nine divisions, for the win. Meiswinke improved from her fourth-place finish at the 2023 Empro Pro and will hope to dethrone the only-ever Olympia Wellness champion Francielle Mattos.
