2001 IFBB English Grand Prix
IT WAS ONE GIGANTIC BATTLE! KEVIN'S LAST GRAND PRIX VICTORY.
The main battle was between the top 2 from USA being KEVIN LEVRONE and CHRIS CORMIER with stiff opposition from Dennis James, Dexter, Ernie Taylor and Melvin. Kevin was in sensational condition and added another GP title to his huge collection. The final posedown nearly brought the house down as the guys went out into the audience to rub shoulders with the fans! See the complete event from comparisons to posedown to awards with full posing routines from the top 15 plus shortened posing routines from the remaining competitors. There were 27 outstanding competitors in total.
This was the first time we had seen Tom Prince and he retired not too long after this event. It was also the one of the earliest times we had seen Gustavo Badell and Mustafa Mohammad as professionals. They placed 3rd and 10th respectively in the 2005 Mr Olympia.
The event was held at the famous Manchester Apollo Theatre, promoted by Kerry Kayes and sponsored by Chemical Nutrition.
Running time: 105 mins
