Ross Caesar Earns Silver Medal: IFBB Pro League Master World Championship
Ross Caesar, the six-time Bermuda champion, has once again proven his mettle in the world of professional bodybuilding.
At the recent IFBB Pro League Masters World Championships in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Caesar bagged the silver medal in the men’s over-50 classic physique category. This achievement mirrors his 2019 runner-up finish at the Romania Pro Masters.
Brad Helm of Colorado clinched the gold, while Erik Alstrup took home the bronze. Caesar’s silver medal comes hot on the heels of his bronze win at the IFBB Pro League Masters Olympia in Cluj, Romania, just a week prior.
“One week after competing in the Masters Olympia, I travelled to Pittsburgh to the Masters,” Caesar admitted.
“I knew it was going to be challenging to repeat peak conditioning a week apart.
The competitors list was majority US competitors and I managed to secure a close second place in over-50 classic physique.”
The Barbadian-born athlete, who has called Bermuda home for the past 25 years, also placed seventh in the men’s over-40 classic physique category.
“Over-40 classic proved to be more challenging because of the two-minute break between the classes,” Caesar said. “It was not even time to recover, however I managed to place seventh.”
Since earning his IFBB professional card in 2019, Caesar has made significant strides in the sport. He credits his success to his strong support system, including his three children, friends, family, and clients.
“I truly hope that my journey has inspired more than a few people and other competitors that anything is possible at any age with patience, consistency, a strong supportive environment and people,” he said.
Caesar made history as the first local athlete to compete at the prestigious International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness Pro League Masters Olympia in Romania.
“I am extremely proud to be the first but I am sure there are many more athletes that will follow,” he said. “This is the first time they have had it in 11 years and this is the first time they had all the categories.”
The top five competitors at the event also included Englishman Kelvin Hinde, Spaniard Luis Garcia Martinez, and American Tom Connelly.
