Shaun Clarida 2021 Legion Sports Fest

The 2021 Legion Sports Fest takes place October 22nd-24th, in Reno, Nevada. This huge bodybuilding show will serve as the Open debut of 2020 212 Olympia champ Shaun Clarida.

The Legion Sports Fest is one of the more exciting contests to take place in the post-Olympia portion of the year. However Clarida is going to make this particular contest all the more intriguing.

The so-called “Little Ronnie Coleman” dropped a close decision to Derek Lunsford at the 2021 Olympia, losing the 212 title that he won the year prior. Now just two weeks later, as he revealed in a post to his Instagram, he plans to make his Open debut at this contest, although he made it clear that this was simply for fun, and not a permanent move.

“💥 SURPRISE SURPRISE!!💥

They said I wasn’t a GIANT KILLER because I never competed in the open, well, ask and you shall receive! #ChallengeAccepted” Clarida wrote.

“It’s always been my plan to do an open show to give myself a new challenge and ultimately just have fun. I’ve always said timing is everything, so after placing 2nd at the Olympia, already being in shape and having absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain, this is a great opportunity to show that I’m not just a good 212 bodybuilder but a good bodybuilder period!

(P.S I’m NOT leaving the 212 Division)”
