Winner — Eric L. Brown

This was Brown’s first contest since the 2021 Southwest Muscle Classic Pro, where he finished in fifth place. The 2017 NPC USA Championships winner had yet to win a pro show until this contest, which was his third. Brown will have another first that comes with it: a Classic Physique Olympia qualification.

Brown joins four-time defending champion Chris Bumstead and the other qualified athletes who will face off at the 2023 Olympia on the weekend of Nov. 2-5, 2023, in Orlando, FL.

Second Place — Damien Patrick

Patrick was also looking for his first professional win since turning pro in 2018. The judges for this show had him solidly in second place in both the pre-judging and finals. This is his second career runner-up finish.

If Patrick’s eyes are set on making it to the 2023 Olympia stage, he will have to compete again and win this season. Only winners earn qualifications for the 2023 Olympia Weekend. 

Third Place — Daniil Famponte

Kentucky native Daniil Famponte turned pro at the 2022 NPC Junior USA Championships by winning his class in both Men’s Bodybuilding and Classic Physique. He competed in Classic Physique and made his pro debut that same year at the Optimum Classic Pro, where he placed fifth.

This was Famponte’s second pro outing and the first of the 2023 season. Finishing in the top three will boost his confidence heading into his next show. Classic Physique was the only division that was contested at this show. The next Classic Physique competition on the 2023 IFBB schedule is the Korea AGP Pro CP show, scheduled for May 6, 2023, in Gyeonggi, South Korea.
