2021 Olympia Men’s 212 Division

The 212 division is a unique category of bodybuilding, some likened the physiques to a smaller version of Men’s Open. 212 was introduced to Mr. Olympia in 2011 as a means for shorter athletes, who cannot gain as much muscle mass comparatively to taller bodybuilders, to compete fairly. As the name suggests competitors cannot be more than 212lbs and cannot be taller than 5’5.

As for the top competitors, Shaun Clarida was the man to beat; coming in as 2020 Mr. Olympia Men’s 212 champion. As the defending champion, he was headlining the first callout. Former champion, Kamal Elgargni, joined him in the first callout. Finally, Derek Lunsford, another top contender for champion and 4x top 5 Men’s 212 competitor, was also placed in the first callout.
