New bodybuilding categories beget new champions, and the ever-expanding Arnold Sports Festival added one of each on March 6, 2015.
Sadik Hadzovic, the three-year IFBB pro hailing from the United States and the former Republic of Yugoslavia, won the first ever inaugural Arnold Sports Festival Pro Men’s Physique contest, besting a highly competitive field of physique athletes. Hadzovic has competed in 12 shows since turning pro in 2012, never finishing lower than fourth in any of the contests. He has twice finished in the top four at the Olympia.
The premiere of the Pro Men’s Physique competition showcased a new class of fit, lean, muscular athletes rocking board shorts on the Expo Stage at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. See how you favorites finished!
At the meet and greet on Thursday, Hadzovic—the 2014 Olympia Men’s Physique runner-up—said the judges and crowd would be wowed with his presentation. He came in ripped and confident, and never stopped smiling. I think he looked better in Columbus than he did at the Olympia. He has just set the standard for this new category.
