2021 Chicago Pro Competitors List and Preview.
The 2021 Chicago Pro will be taking place 23-24 July, 2021 in Atlanta, Georgia.
Over 200 NPC/Pro League competitors will be traveling to Atlanta for the 2021 Chicago Pro.
This year, the organizers will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of this prestigious competition.
As with every major NPC/Pro League event, the main goal for each athlete is not only to win, but earn their qualification for the 2021 Olympia Weekend.
Focusing on bodybuilding, the open bodybuilding division will have 15 of the top athletes competing for the top prize.
Hunter Labrada, Roelly Winklaar and Maxx Charles are the favorites to win, with Hassan Mostafa capable of earning his first pro victory.
Hunter and Maxx will be returning to the stage for the first time this year, after both having a successful 2020 season.
Hunter won the 2020 Tampa Pro and placed an impressive eighth place at his first Mr. Olympia contest.
Maxx Charles was very busy in the 2020 competitive season. Unfortunately he did not win any shows, but he was a consistent top five finisher while he still managed to qualify for the 2020 Mr. Olympia. hopefully Maxx can find the form that won him several titles in previous years.
Fan favorite Roelly Winklaar has not stepped on the competitive stage since 2019. Roelly’s only victory in 2019 was the Yamamoto Cup. He also finished third at the Arnold Classic Australia and fifth at the Arnold Classic USA. At the 2019 Mr. Olympia, Winklaar managed to finish in fifth place.
With such a deep lineup, it will be a very difficult task for the judges. If Roelly Winklaar manages to come in his best condition, it would be very difficult for the rest of the competitors to defeat him.
The 212 bodybuilding division will be another exiting spectacle. All eyes will be on Keone Pearson.
Keone has one of the most balanced physiques in the bodybuilding world. Since winning the Chicago Pro in 2020, Keone has made massive improvements to his physique.
In 2020, Keone decided to skip the 2020 Olympia Weekend, stating that he was not ready mentally to compete.
Fast forward to 2021 and Keone is ready and on a mission to earn his 2021 Olympia Weekend qualification.
