Classic Physique Athletes to Watch

Below are the Classic Physique athletes likely to clash in the first callout:

Terrence Ruffin

Terrence Ruffin ranked fifth overall at the 2023 Classic Physique Olympia in Orlando, FL, on Nov. 4, 2023. Since he didn’t finish in the top three at the Olympia, he needs to qualify for the 2024 Olympia via a pro show win. He should be considered a heavy favorite to score gold in this contest. 

Rajesh Yadav

India’s own Rajesh Yadav could be the host country’s best chance of upsetting Ruffin. Yadav made his only pro appearance in the 2022 edition of this contest, where he finished fifth overall. This will be Yadav’s first onstage appearance since that contest, and he will aim for his first pro win and Olympia qualification.

Julian Lee Ramdhari

Fans may have expected to see Julian Lee Ramdhari of South Africa on the 212 roster, but he switched to Classic Physique for this contest. This is Ramdhari’s Classic Physique debut in his fourth year as a pro.
