The 1998 Finish Grand Prix by Steve Buccilli

In 1998 my wife gave me the gift of Mr. Olympia tickets. That year the show was to be held in New York City and Madison Square Garden. The media had said that Dorian was not going to compete due to the injuries he sustained defending his title the year before.
That night was a magical moment for me. Seeing and cheering for an unbelievable Ronnie Coleman victory, was well “awesome” in a word.
Several months later I wanted a way to savor this moment. I mean that although I had been there, all I had was memories. I did buy the video of the show and that was nice.

However a year later I decided to purchase GMV’s  video of the 1998 Finnish GP staged in Helsinki by K.P. Ourama. What I watched on that video was also just as awesome as attending the Mr. Olympia! The contest was small in numbers, but huge on talent. Ronnie, Nasser, Chris Cormier, Kevin Levrone, Gunter Schlierkamp, Milos Scarcev, and not to forget many other European champions. However there were only about 12-15 athletes. This made for an extremely intimate show.

The camera angle was very close being shot from a special TV platform, and of course the quality of the video is unparallel to any other contest footage. Seeing perhaps the best Ronnie Coleman up close was awesome. His back was so separated and thick.. His quads so incredibly dense. And his arms, so outrageously peaked!

The other athletes were all in fantastic shape. This video shows you the start of the contest, from introductions to all the prejudging callouts and comparisons, to all of the amazing posing routines. Then the awards presentations and of course the posedown.

1998 was the year prior to a new wave of pros, and seeing all these veterans in perhaps their best shape is reason enough to purchase this video. This is the year Ronnie started his dominant reign as a champion, and he looked head and shoulders above everyone else.
Again it goes without saying that you get so much more from a GMV contest video than from anyone else. These folks have been filming for 40 plus years. All of their contests show high grade quality footage and fantastic camera angles. Wayne and his crew really know how to show off a contest. They also really take into consideration the fans/customer’s point of view. They have created the most extensive bodybuilding library of hardcore footage, and that in itself speaks volumes.

So here is the bottom line. If you ever wondered what Ronnie really looked like in 1998, and what his competition looked like, then get this video, GMV-310! I highly recommend it!
