1996 NABBA German National Championships: The Women & Couples - Evening Show
With 3 million bodybuilders, Germany is the second strongest bodybuilding country in the world after USA. Accordingly 11 classes were needed to cater for the huge number of competitors making this easily the largest number we have seen in a single contest.
Held in the famous Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfurt on June 1st, 1996, GMV covered this incredible event featuring 175 outstanding competitors in total - male and female. Separate DVDs have been prepared for both Men and Women from the Evening Show. Due to time constraints at such a huge event, we were not able to produce Prejudging DVDs from this contest. The posing routines of all finalists in each women's class are included, plus all awards and posedowns. Please click here

1996 9th Miss World Figure Grand Prix
It was obvious from the first call out that the Australian girls were going to do well, and it eventually became a battle between Susana Palma of Spain and Australia’s Diane Jardim for the top honour.
Diane was the winner of this particular battle in an extremely tough line-up. The German audience was very gracious in accepting the international lineup, and called for their favourite competitor regardless of the country of origin.
