1986 FIBO – WHERE IT ALL BEGAN is now on DIGITAL DOWNLOAD.
A real blast from the past today. A small piece of FIBO history. My team and I used to attend FIBO every year for many years to shoot and produce these DVDs. Saw some of the greatest bodybuilders of all time including Dorian Yates to Lee Haney to Ronnie Coleman to Arnold. Even saw Victor Richard.
This is where it all started, back in 1986 in Cologne, Germany. There are many different posing shows in this first ever FIBO video, with brief interviews of some of the stars – in German and English. However it is mostly posing shows as you see many of the best mid-eighties bodybuilders in the world. Click here for the COMPLETE INDEX OF FIBO DVDs.
Here are some of the stars you see in this 1 hour Classic FIBO Historic DVD: JUSUP WILKOSZ, TONY PEARSON, PETER HENSEL, RALF MOELLER, JOHN BROWN, ALFRED NEUGEBAUER, ANJA LANGER, CARLA DUNLAP and many more.

|Leroy Colbert - RIP.
Leroy Colbert - RIP.
Leroy Colbert died recently in Henderson, Nevada at age 82. Leroy started out working for the Weider Barbell Company at Joe Weider's Union City office and warehouse in N.J. in the '50s. Colbert’s incredible upper-body development and 20"+ arms regularly appeared in Weider magazines as a model for exercise articles.
I only met Leroy once, in 2000 at our Legends Reunion in LA. He was a quiet gentleman and he will be greatly missed by his many friends. RIP Leroy.
You can see Leroy in that historic 2000 video titled "The Legends Reunion at World Gym", GMV-444DVD and also on DIGITAL DOWNLOAD.
