Olympia Weekend, the most prestigious event in the world of bodybuilding with more than 100 participants, returns to the Orleans Arena September 28-30.

For the seventh consecutive year, the Mr. Olympia contest — an annual bodybuilding competition sanctioned by the International Federation of Bodybuilders Professional League (IFBB Pro League) — will take center stage at the Orleans Arena. Winning this prestigious event is considered the highest accolade in the sport of professional bodybuilding. With total prize money exceeding $900,000, the 2012 IFBB Joe Weider’s Olympia Fitness and Performance Weekend holds the record for the all-time highest single purse in the history of the sport.
