Nick Walker Secures Second New York Pro Title Amidst Strongman Comeback


The highly anticipated 2024 New York Pro, a premier event in the IFBB Pro League calendar, concluded with a remarkable performance by strongman athlete Nick Walker. Making a triumphant return after recovering from a hamstring injury that sidelined him from the 2023 Mr. Olympia, Walker secured his second New York Pro title, solidifying his position as a force to be reckoned with in the bodybuilding world.

Walker’s updated physique was the talk of the night, as he appeared to have not only recovered from his injury but also made significant improvements to his overall conditioning and midsection. This evolution was particularly notable when compared to his runner-up finish at the 2023 Arnold Classic, where he was outmatched in size by champion Samson Dauda.

“Undeterred, Walker maintained his aesthetically-driven ‘X-frame’ approach while regaining the size that had eluded him in Columbus.”

His two-point victory over Martin Fitzwater in Teaneck has now earned Walker a coveted spot at the 2024 Mr. Olympia, where he will once again clash with the reigning champion, Derek Lunsford, as well as other top contenders such as Dauda and former Mr. Olympia Hadi Choopan.

The 2024 Mr. Olympia promises to be one of the most competitive lineups in recent history, with the return of a rejuvenated Nick Walker sure to add an exciting new dimension to the proceedings.
