Mr. Olympia 2021: Dates, Schedule, Prize Money, Predictions and How to watch

Beginning on Thursday, the Mr. Olympia event is back at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. With a $1.6 million prize purse up for grabs through 11 divisions, the competition will be fierce and furious.

While the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding competition is the top draw—and features the biggest prize pool with last year's winner taking home $400,000—the 2021 edition of Joe Weider's Olympia Fitness & Performance Weekend has plenty to offer.

Things kick off on Thursday with the Olympia Press Conference. Events like the 212 Olympia, Ms. Olympia and Fitness Olympia will take place on Friday, while the Mr. Olympia, Men's Physique Olympia, Bikini Olympia and Classic Physique Olympia will take place on Saturday evening.

The Ghana-born bodybuilder is a threat virtually every time he takes the stage, and that should be no different in 2021. He took second place at the 2019 Olympia and finished fifth last year.
