Williams’ victory is a stable lead to his first contest since a ninth-place end on the 2021 Mr. Olympia. The bodybuilder would possibly channel this effort for a greater lead to December’s Olympia. His greatest profession end within the main contest was sixth place within the 2020 version.

Williams’ devoted work with features of his physique like his shredded arms, shoulders, and legs was sufficient to beat former 212 Olympia champ (2019) Kamal Elgargni — a newcomer to the Men’s Open division. While he didn’t win, a second-place end is a high quality end result for Elgargni in his first time competing in a brand new class. 

According to the IFBB Pro League’s qualification requirements, the Tampa Pro is a Tier 2 contest. Second by means of fifth place finishers on this competitors earned factors starting from eight to 5 of their respective quests to qualify for the Olympia. That means a fourth-place end result for a rising star like Joe Mackey earned him six factors as he works for potential Olympia hopes. Mackey has one other pending alternative for extra factors (or automated qualification with a win) in a Tier 4 contest on the 2022 Texas Pro on August 12-13, 2022, in Irving, Texas.
