This was a classic contest and one of the greatest ever Amateur World Championships. Imagine seeing all of these great amateurs on stage – Heavyweights Mike Christian, Berry de Mey and Olev Annus. They each went on to have wonderful Pro careers.
Next in the Light-heavyweights it was Rich Gaspari v the massive Josef Grolmus. Rich was three times runner-up Mr Olympia and an Arnold Classic winner.

|Plaque from the 1980 Mr. Olympia & Medal from the 1998 50th NABBA Universe!!
Plaque from the 1980 Mr. Olympia.
Presented to me on behalf of our company, Gallasch & Coffey, when we were one of the sponsors of the 1980 Mr Olympia contest. It was held in the Sydney Opera House, Australia. The contest was professionally staged by Paul Graham and the winner was Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Arnold and his partner Jim Lorimer have been putting back into the sport for 29 years with their Arnold Classic partnership. They run this annual event which is now staged in 6 different countries. It is called the Arnold Sports Festival. http://www.arnoldsportsfestival.com/
The USA version was founded in Columbus, Ohio, in 1989 and now features more than 18,000 athletes from 80 nations competing in 70 sports and events. I will be there next year in conjunction with the video production for their historic 30th event.
Jim Lorimer is a truly amazing man. Now 91 and sharp as a tack, he is still in at the office each day. Check out his 90th birthday celebration speech here. I have never heard a better speech. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCXMKHjUCxk
1998 NABBA Universe Commemorative Medal.
I was fortunate to receive one of these special medals at the 1998 NABBA 50th Mr. Universe contest in Birmingham, at the ICC. Last weekend the Universe contest was held in the same Hall 1 at the ICC in Birmingham.
Next year it will be their 70th Anniversary. It would be nice if I could attend in 2018 and do a special video doco for NABBA on this historic event. Similar to what I did in 1998 and 2008, plus the 60th Anniversary dinner. To be a permanent record of the very important occasion for the NABBA archives.
It would be visual record to sit alongside the contest webcast and the videos shot for YouTube, so ably handled by others. Maybe there will be a 70th NABBA Universe Commemorative Medal next year.
As a side note, the major winners in 1998 were:
Eddy Ellwood (UK) NABBA Ultimate Nutrition Professional Mr. Universe
Gary Lister (UK) NABBA Tropicana Amateur Mr. Universe
John Citrone (UK) NABBA Peak Body Masters Universe
Pina Theodoridis (Australia) Figure Overall Winner

Wishing Bill Pearl a very happy 87th Birthday today! I started corresponding with Bill in the mid sixties and first met him at the 1971 NABBA Universe where he won the Pro Class.
