2022 Arnold Classic Results

  1. Brandon Curry $130,000
  2. William Bonac $75,000
  3. Steve Kuclo $50,000
  4. Samson Dauda $30,000
  5. Justin Rodriguez $15,000
  6. Brett Wilkin $10,000


Top six.
Bonac really pushed Brandon here. Wilkins had a lot of hype coming in, but looked a bit off. Samson Dauda is extremely impressive, most asthetic guy onstage and great conditioning.



I think Samson looked great and probably deserved top 3.

Extremely sharp.

As for the top 2, take your pick.

Yer both look crazy, I think Curry has a more pleasing shape but looked a little smoother, that could just be photos or even the amount of oil. Either way these 2 were hard to beat for sure.

Actually Samson was third on the second day @simo74

Shame he couldn’t hold it though the posedown. Good to see him coming on looking sharp and getting recognition.

Samson sharpened up for the night show, while Justin smoothed out (dropping from 3rd to 5th). You could definitely make a case for Samson in third.

Totally agree, he has a great shape and has packed on some muscle over the last year but still kept the symmetry.

Also, South African bodybuilder Sibusiso Kotelo was disqualified due to turning up late to prejudging (communication problems due to language barrier), but later guest posed at the show.
From the way he looked, he probably could have challenged Brandao for first place.

Packing serious amounts of muscle but lacking in symmetry for me.
