Derek Lunsford won the 212 Olympia, at the 2021 Olympia, held October 7-10, in Orlando, Florida. This came at the end of a tight competition, with former champion Shaun Clarida in second and Kamal Elgargni in third.
The 212 Olympia was held with a heavy heart, just like the rest of the Olympia weekend. It was hard to ignore the elephant in the room, namely that 212 contestant George Peterson had passed away on Wednesday, just days before the contest.
Nonetheless, the rest of the 18 athletes still took to the stage in hopes of dethroning champion Shaun Clarida and claiming the title, while the so-called “Little Ronnie Coleman” attempted to win his first title defense. In the end, it was Derek Lunsford who emerged victorious, winning their very first 212 Olympia title after years spent near the top and beating the rest of the roster.
However, it was far from a clean slate for the champion, who had to pull out a series of tight competitions. He had to work hard to overtake now former champion Shaun Clarida, who ended up in second place at the end of the contest, as well as former champion Kamal Elgargni who landed in third place.
