Saturday contained the Arnold Classic final, which appeared to be a two-man race after Choopan and Dauda were called out multiple times in Friday’s prejudging. It was Choopan’s first time participating in the Classic, as the man nicknamed the Persian Wolf has typically been one of the finalists in recent years at Olympia Fitness & Performance Weekend.

He was named Mr. Olympia in 2022, although his finish as the runner-up in 2023 behind Derek Lunsford came as a disappointment relative to the rest of his career. As for Dauda, he entered the 2024 Classic searching for his second straight title after winning the competition in 2023.

Choopan emerged victorious, winning the Arnold Classic as well as the $300,000 prize in his first time competing in the event. Dauda earned a No. 2 finish.

Saturday also featured the Strongman Classic event, with a loaded field that included 2023 champion Mitchell Hooper as well as 2018 World’s Strongest Man Hafthór Björnsson. Although Björnsson held a lead after the first day of competition, Hooper finished with 52 points at the end of the event and earned back-to-back victories.

Angelica Jardine was the victor of the Arnold Strongwoman Classic with a score of 45 points, barely edging out runner-up Olga Liashchuk after she finished with 44.5 points.

Here are the full results from Saturday.

Although Dauda finished in second place, he didn’t go home empty-handed. In addition to his $120,000 prize as the runner-up in the Classic, he also won the Best Poser Award. His trophy was presented to him by Schwarzenegger himself.

Suffice to say, it was another successful year for the festival. The 2025 edition is already shaping up to be another fierce competition, as Schwarzenegger announced that the Arnold Classic first place prize money will be raised to $500,000 (via Generation Iron).
