2022 Tampa Pro Results

Men’s Open

  1. Akim Williams
  2. Kamal Elgargni
  3. Quinton Eriya
  4. Joseph Mackey
  5. Phil Clahar
  6. Eddie Bracamontes
  7. Stuart Sutherland
  8. Tim Budesheim

  10. Morgan Aste

This was Williams’ first contest of 2022, and he needed the win to qualify for the Olympia. The Legends of Iron podcast co-host appeared bigger at this show than when he won the 2021 Puerto Rico Pro. Williams made a little history as well, becoming the first two-time Tampa Pro winner since the contest started in 2008. He now moves on to the Olympia, where he hopes to surpass his previous best placing of sixth, which he scored in 2020.

Elgargni’s made his Open debut, and he was far and away the most conditioned man on stage. His issue may have been that he was outsized by Williams, who, in addition to being large, was ripped as well. Elgargni will now move on to the Texas Pro in Irving, TX on Aug. 13, 2022 to see if he can score his first pro open win there.

Canadian Quinton Eriya had great symmetry, and his legs looked fantastic in every pose he hit. He just didn’t have the overall size that Williams did, nor was he as conditioned as Elgargni. Nevertheless, his star has been rising, and standing next to two bonafide bodybuilding stars only makes his next contest appearance that much more intriguing. This is his second top three finish since his pro debut in 2019. He was the runner-up at the 2021 Toronto Pro to win Joel Thomas. As of this writing, he hadn’t announced what show he’s doing next.

Ben Weider Lifetime Achievement Award

Olympia President Dan Solomon was honored during the finals on Aug. 6 by receiving the Ben Weider Lifetime Achievement Award. Solomon was honored for his contributions to bodybuilding through media as well as his work since taking the helm of the Olympia in 2019.

About the Tampa Pro

The Tampa Pro has been held every year since 2008 when it was first introduced by Tim Gardner Productions. Over 200 IFBB Pro League athletes are competing across all 10 divisions that were presented at the 2022 show. Men’s wheelchair was the only division that was absent.

The Men’s Open contest has had 14 different champions in all 14 years it has been held. The show received a jump in awareness this year thanks to former Olympia 212 champion Kamal Elgargni announcing that he would be competing in this show. The contest was streamed on internet pay-per-view on the TGP website
