Mr. Olympia 2023 Predictions

By George Touliatos, MD

 

My top five at this year’s Olympia are as follows:

Samson Dauda. The resident of the United Kingdom has improved phenomenally from last year and at the Arnold was at his best. What impresses me about him is his aesthetic structure, excellent symmetry, and proportions. Also, his tiny midsection with exceptional V-taper, even though he weighs close to 300 pounds. He is a huge guy and good poser. He has further improved in size since last March and he is hungry.

Hadi Choopan is massive, and very conditioned with thick muscles. Hadi has exceptional density as a result of his enormous strength. His only disadvantage is his quadrangular structure with the large midsection. That reveals a weaker V-taper compared to Samson and Derek.

Derek Lunsford has also improved and shows bigger. Last year he was the best in back and glutes. His V-taper is outstanding. I believe he can be in top three.

Nick Walker is bigger than anyone and the most freaky. He might look like the Hulk, but he lacks the aesthetic parameter.

Brandon Curry is an athlete with quality and supreme shape. Awesome V-taper, but weaker leg department and deep separation.

 

The top five is similar to last year, more or less, with the exception of Big Ramy
