Adding another victory to her list, Orlando sports immigration attorney Ksenia Maiorova secured a P-1A visa for Dmitrii Vorotyntsev. Vorotyntsev, who has a cult following on Instagram, competes in the Men’s Classic Physique division. Dmitrii is famous for his unique proportions – a tiny waist and massive shoulders.
Vorotyntsev’s first US competition
Dmitrii Vorotyntsev used his new P-1A visa to compete at the 2019 Yamamoto Nutrition Cup Tampa Pro. Ksenia, who is known for traveling to support her clients in sports competitions, was there to cheer him on. He easily advanced to the final and was awarded 6th place in the competition.
A first-place finish would have automatically qualified him for the top competition in bodybuilding, the world-famous Mr. Olympia. The Tampa IFBB pro was his last chance this season to qualify. However, following the competition, Votortynsev remained optimistic. He expressed his gratitude for the collegial competitive atmosphere and reiterated his commitment to qualifying for Mr. Olympia 2020.
Next up: San Antonio
Undeterred by the temporary setback, Vorotyntsev immediately made his way to the Powerhouse Gym in Tampa to refine his form and prepare for his next competition in San Antonio. A win in San Antonio would help him secure a trip to Mr. Olympia 2020 in Las Vegas.
Already well-known in Russia and Europe, Dmitrii and his primary sponsor, Dragon Pharma, look forward to his US competition schedule and Olympia 2020 prospects. For more information about collaborating with Dmitrii Vorotyntsev, contact his marketing team at Dragon Pharma.
P-1 visa win in a complicated case
Our Sports & Extraordinary Ability practice got off to a great start in 2019, with a P-1 approval for Canadian Tremaine Harris. Harris, a 400-meter Olympic sprinter, uses his P-1 to train with the world-renowned Altis group in Phoenix, AZ and compete in the US.
This case was complicated by a brief, inadvertent status violation by the athlete. Attorney Ksenia Maiorova crafted a legal strategy to overcome the violation and worked overtime to secure the approval, enabling the athlete to resume training in Arizona as soon as possible.
