The Olympia Qualification Series will award points to competitors placing in the top 2 to 5 of all IFBB Professional League events. At the end of the Olympia qualifying season, the five (5) competitors with the highest point totals in the Olympia Qualification Series will qualify to compete at Olympia Weekend.
Since the winner of each competition automatically qualifies, no points will be awarded for first place. Additionally, competitors placing in the top 5 at the Olympia automatically qualify for the following year.
“We think this is a great way to expand the number of Olympia qualifiers beyond those who win contests and to build excitement for all IFBB Pro League events throughout the course of the year,” IFBB Pro League President Jim Manion said. “It ensures that the best of the best will be competing on the Olympia stage.”

TIER 1 – ARNOLD CLASSIC (USA)
2nd – 8 Points
3rd – 7 Points
4th – 6 Points
5th – 5 Points
