Men’s Physique Winner — Kadeem Hillman

Kadeem Hillman has had an impressive 2023. He placed first in the NPC Junior USA Championships and the 2023 NPC Universe before making his pro debut in this contest. Hillman started the year as an amateur but ended it with an Olympia qualification.

Women’s Physique Winner — Andrea Alonso

Andrea Alonso made the trip from Florida to Virginia to take on four rivals in the Women’s Physique contest. Alonso returned to the Sunshine State with a pro win. She appeared much better in this show than her fifth-place finish in the 2023 Daytona Pro. She is now qualified for the 2024 Olympia.
