Not everybody knows how one can qualify for the Mr Olympia and other competitions.
The Olympia weekend starts on September 26 up to September 29 2013.
A number of competitors have already qualified automatically and others have qualified by winning Pro shows. Others have to qualify with a point system.
The IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series will award points to competitors placing in the top 2 to 5 of all Pro League events. At the end of the Olympia qualifying season, the five (5) competitors with the highest points totals in the IFBB Pro 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.
