The 2022 Yamamoto Pro took place on September 10, 2022, in Padua, Italy. With the 2022 Olympia inching ever closer, this year’s International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness (IFBB) Pro League contest in Italy held a lot of weight as another step in the qualification process. As the respective competitors showed off their immense mass, it was another opportunity for some to make a name for themselves.  

The 2022 edition of the Yamamoto Pro featured four divisions, with Vladyslav Suhoruchko as one of the headline victors. The respective winners of each category earned an automatic place in the Olympia on December 16-18, 2022. Meanwhile, with the Yamamoto Pro being an IFBB Tier 4 contest, the second to fifth place finishers earned points ranging from four to one in their overall bid for the prestigious bodybuilding competition.
