Mr. Olympia 2021: Date, Schedule, Prize Money and Qualifiers




Mr. Olympia 2021 is coming for the 46th time and if you wish to be a part of the bodybuilding competition, you can mark your presence in Orlando, Florida in the upcoming weekend.

Tell me on a scale of 1 to 10, how excited are you.

Going a little back to history, the Mr. Olympia competition started back in 1965. For bodybuilders, it was a chance like never before to compete and fight against each other and make some money from the event. Who wouldn’t like that?

Mr. Olympia brings bodybuilders from all the corners of the world to fight each other every year. All these bodybuilders come together in the United States every year to win against one another. With a total of 11 events that take place over the weekend, the fun just keeps adding up.

Two of the very popular events, Mr. Olympia and Ms. Olympia.

But here is the deal, how much does the winner take home? The news breaks down it for the audience and also tells us how much each competitor is taking home. Let’s have a look and dig in deep to find the details.

Mr. Olympia – Date and Time

Mr. Olympia has begun and starts from October 7th, 2021, Thursday, and ends on October 10th, 2021, Sunday.

Now that we have covered the basics, let’s move on.

The ”Big Prize” Amount – Mr. Olympia 2021

There will be 11 events hosted over the weekend and the total purse for Mr. Olympia will amount to $1.6 million for the year 2021. In history, these are the highest numbers and figures that we are looking at.

In 2020, the purse amount was $1.4 million and for the current physical year, the number is higher than ever.

Since 2K15, this year the amount is the highest.

The Prize Money for the ”Winner”

As interesting as it gets, the winner of Mr. Olympia takes home an amount worth of six figures. 

The top three contestants in the list took home a six-figure amount.

Mr. Olympia champion for the year 2020, Mamdouh Elssbiay, took home $400,000 dollars. The one on the second spot grabbed $150,000 and the third-place winner bagged $100,000.

This year the amount has increased by $200,000, the winner takes home a lot more than we can actually anticipate. However, the payout will see an expected increase taking it further to a 50/50 for both men and women’s events/

Ms. Olympia’s winner’s amount last year was $50,000 and this year, it’s gonna get big than ever.
