Phil Heath placed first, followed by Kai Greene and Dennis Wolf. Last years winner Shawn Rhoden did not manage to defend his title and finished in fourth. Victor Martinez and Roelly Winklaar placed fifth and sixth.
Phil Heath now has made his mark and has showed that he can dominate for years to come as Haney and Coleman have done in previous years.
