Tonio Burton

Tonio Burton hoped to defend his 2023 New York Pro title to earn his Olympia qualification. However, he was defeated by Nick Walker in Teaneck, NJ.

Burton ranked second at the 2024 Arnold South America contest and eighth at the 2023 Mr. Olympia. He still needs a pro show win to reach the 2024 Olympia stage, but he is the favorite in Anaheim.

Stuart Sutherland

Stuart Sutherland finished the 2024 New York Pro, one spot behind Burton, but many fans and experts feel Sutherland has the potential to win a pro show this season.

This will be Sutherland’s second appearance in a row for the 2024 season. He has yet to win a title in the pro ranks, though he has been in the mix multiple times, including the 2023 edition of this contest, where he also finished fourth.

Seung Chul Lee

Seung Chul Lee participated in the 2020 Mr. Olympia contest but finished 12th. Although he has not appeared on the Olympia stage since then, he has the size and shape to hold his own in any regular-season show. His last show was one year ago at the 2023 edition of this contest, and he finished seventh.
