Nick Walker has withdrawn from the 2023 Mr. Olympia. In the solemn Instagram video posted below, Walker details that he won’t be able to compete due to a hamstring injury. Although he and his team tried their best to remedy the injury, the progress made wasn’t enough for them to be confident in his competing this year. A tearful Walker said this was the smoothest prep he’s had and was extremely optimistic about taking home the title this year. There is some good news from the video: Walker still plans on being around for Olympia weekend, so all the fans who were looking forward to seeing him this weekend will still be able to catch a glimpse of The Mutant.
