Arnold Classic winner Olympia

2021 Arnold Classic winner will qualify for 2021 Mr. Olympia?

It has been reported that the winner of the 2021 Arnold Classic bodybuilding competition will qualify for the 2021 Mr. Olympia.

UPDATE: The Arnold Sports organizers have confirmed that the winner of the Arnold Classic Bodybuilding division will qualify for the 2021 Mr. Olympia.

The 2021 Arnold Classic was originally a 2022 Olympia Weekend qualifier, with the contest taking place just a few weeks before the 2021 Olympia Weekend.

The Arnold Classic is taking place on 25 September, 2021, while 7-10 October is the date for the 2021 Olympia Weekend.

Muscular Development’s Ron Harris has revealed that the Arnold Classic winner in the bodybuilding division will qualify for the 2021 Mr Olympia. The remaining athletes will have their points count for the 2022 season.

In regards to Classic Physique, Bikini International and Fitness International, the winners and points accumulated will count for the 2022 Olympia Weekend.

According to Ron Harris, he received this information from J.M. Manion.



Evolutionofbodybuilding.net asked President & Chief Olympia Officer Dan Solomon, to confirm this news.

Until publishing this article, this site received no answer. A few hours later, after publishing this article, the Arnold Classic organizers confirmed the news.

With such a star studded lineup for the 2021 Arnold Classic, it would have made sense that the news of the winner qualifying for the 2021 Mr. Olympia be given more exposure.

After Ron Harris revealed this news, there was absolutely no reaction from either the Arnold Classic or the Olympia Weekend organizers, leaving the fans and media thinking this is just a rumor.

After publishing this article, the Arnold Classic organizers confirmed the news with a press release. See press release below.
