All professional bodybuilders live for this competition where the best of the best in the sport compete. While the event began Thursday, the marquee events will conclude on Saturday night with the winner of the 2014 Mr. Olympia being crowned.
The prize money breakdown for the 2014 event has not been released yet, but with $900,000 awarded in 2012 and $1 million awarded in 2013, fans of the competition should expect a hefty sum of money being given.
