Slovak brand NEBBIA has once again dressed all Olympia champions
Already at the introductory press conference, spectators could see rows of champions dressed in the legendary Olympia tracksuit. Our goal is to support both amateur and professional athletes who love fitness and bodybuilding just like we do. The mutual cooperation of NEBBIA & OLYMPIA also launched an exceptional men's collection 1965 that celebrates the golden age of bodybuilding and each product was tested and approved by Pro Olympia champions.
The biggest Olympia event since 1965
As stated in the roonie.cz portal, and according to the organizers, the largest Olympia of all time took place in Orlando this year. Olympia Weekend 2021 had several "tops": the largest stage in Olympia Weekend history,the highest financial rewards (totaling $ 1.6 million), the largest number of sponsors, and the largest number of tickets sold out long before the date. Olympia Weekend owner Jake Wood described the current state of bodybuilding with these words: "Bodybuilding has never been stronger!"
Competitors from the Czech Republic and Slovakia, categories and winners
People from Slovakia and the Czech Republic are definitely interested because some of the Czechoslovak athletes also traveled to Orlando.

NEBBIA’s presence at Olympia Weekend
Choosing who travels to Orlando on behalf of the NEBBIA brand was easy. Our brand ambassador, Anton Antipov, is not only an ambitious PRO bodybuilder but also a talented photographer. You can see his photos in this article! In spite of all obstacles, Roelly Winklaar managed to qualify at the Olympia, finishing in 11th place in the Mr. Olympia category. Roelly is our long-standing "iron in the fire" and we are all incredibly proud of him. Competing in Mr. Olympia category has confirmed that he is still one of the elite professional bodybuilders in the world and we will keep our fingers crossed for him again next year.
On the Olympia stage, you could also see some famous faces from the NEBBIA men's collection 1965 - Terrence Ruffin, who took a beautiful 2nd place in the Classic Physique category. Oksana Grishina, with whom we have been cooperating for several years, could not miss Olympia either. In the Fitness category, she showed a charming gymnastic figure and won a bronze medal. If you are watching our training videos on Instagram, you might also recognize the name Sunny Andrews. This year, she premiered at the Olympia and placed 6th in the Wellness category. Lászlo Királi is also one of our brand athletes, who qualified for the Olympia 2021 (cat. Classic Physique), but decided not to participate in the competition due to health complications. We wish László a fast recovery and we look forward to Olympia Weekend 2022.
As a long-term partner and sponsor of the Olympia Weekend, we know how difficult it is to qualify for this competition. All athletes who succeeded deserve maximum admiration and recognition. Congratulations to each of them on this huge achievement and we can’t wait to see them bring their A-game next year.
