Olympia Qualification Series

The Olympia Qualification Series awards points to competitors placing 2nd to 5th at IFBB Pro League competitions. At the end of the Olympia qualifying season, the three competitors with the highest point totals qualify to compete at the Olympia. Ties in 3rd place are broken in favor of the competitor with the better competition placings over the qualifying season. The tier level is taken into consideration. Athletes are not moved up if a top 3 athlete cannot compete.

Since the winner of each competition automatically qualifies, no points are awarded for first place. Additionally, competitors placing in the top 5 at the Olympia automatically qualify for the following year.
