Hadi Choopan: Defying Odds and Dominating the Stage

Hadi Choopan, born in September 1987 in Sepidan County, Fars Province, Iran, hails from a financially struggling family, which led him to work at an early age.

Despite the demanding work, Choopan developed an interest in bodybuilding at an early age and initiated his training under coach Jamshid Owji in 2002, lifting 5kg weights due to his smaller stature.

Over time, he made steady progress and secured a third-place finish in a national competition within three years of pursuing professional bodybuilding.

In 2005, he won his first national title, marking his rise in the sport.

Rise to Prominence 

In 2013, Choopan's career took a significant step forward when he began training with Ali Ne’mati.

His accomplishments included winning the WBPF Asia Championships in 2013 and continued success at the WBPF World Bodybuilding Championships in 2013, 2014, and 2015.

With his career gaining momentum, he started training with coach Hany Rambod in 2017 and secured a gold medal at the 2017 Mr. Olympia Amateur.

Then, Choopan participated in various competitions, showcasing his dedication and determination.

Professional Achievements 

Choopan faced difficulties obtaining a U.S. Visa, preventing him from participating in major international events in 2018. But he successfully resolved these issues in 2019, won the IFBB Vancouver Pro, and placed third in his Mr. Olympia debut.

He continued to compete and achieved notable placements, eventually winning the Mr. Olympia title in 2022 and securing second place in 2023.

Despite his setbacks, Choopan's perseverance and dedication have solidified his position as a force to be reckoned with in the bodybuilding world.

Transition to Men's Open Division and Impact on Bodybuilding 

Choopan has made significant progress in improving his physique over the years.

As a former 212 competitor, he has emphasized the importance of paper-thin conditioning, which has won over the judges.

His journey from a promising Men's 212 competitor to an Olympia champion is a testament to his talent, dedication, and determination.

Choopan's success demonstrates that it is possible to achieve excellence and become a champion in higher divisions by focusing on aesthetics, conditioning, and fullness rather than size alone, thereby reshaping the standards of competition in the bodybuilding world.

Challenges and Triumphs 

Despite facing visa challenges and setbacks, Choopan's determination and commitment to his craft have been unwavering.

His journey from humble beginnings to becoming a prominent figure in the bodybuilding community is a testament to his resilience and passion for the sport.

Also, Choopan's ability to overcome obstacles and achieve success serves as an inspiration to aspiring bodybuilders worldwide, demonstrating that with dedication and hard work, one can defy the odds and reach the pinnacle of the sport.

Impact and Influence on the Bodybuilding World 

Hadi Choopan's remarkable career and achievements have had a profound impact on the bodybuilding world.

His success in transitioning to the Men's Open division and winning the prestigious Mr. Olympia title in 2022 has challenged traditional notions of bodybuilding standards.

Choopan's emphasis on aesthetics, conditioning, and fullness as opposed to sheer size has redefined the parameters of success in the sport, inspiring a new generation of bodybuilders to focus on overall physique balance and presentation.

All in all, Hadi Choopan's journey from adversity to triumph, his unwavering dedication, and his significant impact on the bodybuilding world exemplify a remarkable tale of resilience, passion, and unprecedented success.
