The ascending star gave a preview of what may quickly come.
On Apr. 4, 2023, Michal “Križo” Križánek shared an Instagram picture of himself visitor posing and exhibiting off his present physique on the 2023 High De Colmar contest, which occurred on Apr. 1, 2023. Križo wrote in his put up that he had a monstrous physique weight of 137 kilograms (302 pounds). The competition occurred in Colmar, France.
Križo’s newest main physique reveal comes on the heels of a productive 2022 as a competitor. It would even assist him to construct momentum on some early success within the Worldwide Federation of Bodybuilding and Health (IFBB) Professional League. Križo took a measured approach that shortly developed right into a seamless transition from the IFBB Elite Professional League.
In the summertime of 2022, Križo introduced his intentions to determine himself as a bona fide Males’s Open athlete under the Pro League’s jurisdiction. The bodybuilder formally grew to become a part of the Nationwide Physique Committee (NPC) and later earned his Professional Card by successful the 2022 Newbie Olympia Italy in October.
Only a few weeks later, Križo scored his first Worldwide Federation of Bodybuilding and Health (IFBB) Professional League victory on the 2022 EVLS Prague Professional. That win would garner the competitor a spot within the 2022 Mr. Olympia, his debut on the prestigious contest. After a Twelfth-place end, Križo is now assuredly coming for extra.
After recent changes to the Olympia qualification system, Križo should win one other IFBB Professional League contest to qualify for the 2023 Mr. Olympia in Orlando, FL. Solely previous winners and top-five finishers from the 2022 contest have computerized berths on this yr’s competitors. With the earlier points-based system not in place, everybody else should earn their maintain by successful a 2023 IFBB Professional League contest.
On the time of this text’s publication, Križo has not introduced his upcoming aggressive intentions.
Based mostly on his Instagram posts, the athlete appears to be within the thick of his offseason training. His physique teasing and visitor posing seem to merely be a preview of what may come when he does step onto a stage to compete once more later this yr.
In a sport like skilled bodybuilding, darkish horses can seemingly come out of nowhere at any given contest, not to mention the flagship Olympia. At this second in time, Križo would doubtless nonetheless be thought-about a darkish horse. By the tip of 2023, such a label may not do that large competitor correct justice.
