Ferguson Wins 2nd Straight Title
Andre Ferguson of New York, New York outlasted a field of 33 competitors to win the Arnold Classic Men’s Physique for the second straight year. In between, the four-year IFBB Pro League veteran finished a disappointing fifth at the 2018 Mr. Olympia so his repeat win was still a welcome surprise to one of the division’s most successful stars. Ferguson received congratulations from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, $5,000, a Tony Nowak Official Champions Jacket, and the champion’s trophy from Carol Zawadzki of Midway Labs USA and Steve Slater of ROGUE Fitness.

- 2nd place: Raymont Edmonds received $2,000 and a trophy from Optimum Nutrition and Pure Protein.
