Ahmad Ashkanani has won the 2017 Kuwait Pro and is headed back to the Mr. Olympia stage in 2018. Ricardo Correia, who recently won the Prague Show at 212, had some steep competition and ended up finishing in 5th place. Ashkanani trains out of Oxygen gym, where owner Bader Boodai has helped train many top pros in Kuwait.  If you didn’t already know, Kuwait is quickly become a new mecca for modern bodybuilding in the middle east.

Kuwait Pro 2017 Men’s 212

Ashkanani who is the 212 Mr. Olympia runner-up was the clear man to beat at this show.  Jose Raymond, who also looked fantastic, was able to place second. Jose took 3rd place at the Olympia, behind Flex Lewis and Ahman Ashkanani, so he retains his spot as 3rd best in the world at the 212 category.  Shaun Clarida, who is also an Olympian, had a strong showing and rounded out the top 3.

Kuwait Pro 2017 Men’s Physique


Kuwait displayed its talent and strength as both first place winners won their respected categories.

Abdullah Alsaeef took top the win in the Men’s Physique category.  We didn’t see any of the top 10 olympians participate in this show, but Alsaeef is headed to the Olympia stage with this win and will have his hands full prepping for the top show.

Although he shined at this show, he will need to add more size to his smaller frame in order to compete with the Men’s Physique top competitors. Sergi Constance who did the NPC News Online post contest interview easily out angled Alsaeef.  Sergi placed 12th at the 2017 Mens Physique Mr. Olympia.
