|WAYNE’S HARD NEWS - Calum von Moger - Mr. Universe on HD Download!!
WAYNE’S HARD NEWS - Calum von Moger wins the 2015 WFF Universe Pro Bodybuilding Class - on HD Download.
Today being Bastille Day in France, 14th July, it seemed perfect timing for this long overdue edition of my Hard News. I have recently returned from France where the 2015 WFF Universe was staged by Olivier Ripert in his home city of La Ciotat on the western end of the French Riviera.
CLICK HERE for the CALUM VON MOGER HARD NEWS Article.
Calum von Moger was named Pro Mr Universe for a third time. (He was Junior Mr Universe in 2011 and won the 2014 WFF Amateur Mr Universe last year in South Korea.)
Due to his Austrian and Dutch heritage, he is known in some circles as Arnold # 2, and when he speaks with his slight Austrian accent, he even sounds like the young Arnold! It is a great honour for Calum to be compared to Arnold Schwarzenegger.
What makes Calum a great champion is not just his size, but also his superb symmetry, wonderful shape, and attention to detail along with his great condition. I have no doubt that Calum is headed for a very successful full-time career as a professional bodybuilder and spokesperson for the sport, and for the WFF and NABBA.
It was a privilege to be the DVD producer for this WFF Universe contest in France, and we will have the various DVDs edited and available in regular DVD and also on Blu-ray in due course. Let me know if you wish to be advised when these DVDs are released at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have decided to make available as a sneak preview of CALUM von MOGER on HD DOWNLOAD - his complete Pro Men's Bodybuilding Class competition, from the start of the Pro Prejudging through to Calum's victory including his posing on stage afterwards.
Here is a link to my CALUM von MOGER PHOTO GALLERY, being a combination of contest shots from France shot by Francesco Casillo and myself. Plus some great training photos that Calum has shared with his FB fans.
You can also see Calum von Moger in our 2015 NABBA/WFF Pro-Am Lee Priest Classic Australia DVD, GMV-892DVD.
