In the heavyweight class it was a battle of the giants between a young, ripped and superb Berry de Mey and a mature and sensational Bob Paris. I do not know how close it was on the judges’ sheets but in my mind it was a toss up and could have gone either way.

Product Description

This was a sensational contest, held outdoors in a huge amphitheatre in central Singapore. I took a group of enthusiastic Adelaide bodybuilding fans to this contest as tour leader. It was an experience of a life time for everyone.

In the heavyweight class it was a battle of the giants between a young, ripped and superb Berry de Mey and a mature and sensational Bob Paris. I do not know how close it was on the judges’ sheets but in my mind it was a toss up and could have gone either way. Ralf Moeller was another giant, literally and dwarfed the others during the posedown. Christian Janatsch was there with his girlfriend Rachel McLish, Ms Olympia. Rachel guest posed at the evening finals.

Chuck Williams and Charles Glass, both from USA turned out to be very strong and convincing winners of their respective classes as was Appie Steenbeek from Holland and Herman Hoffend from West Germany.

See the CHARLES GLASS PHOTO GALLERY.

After the contest was over, I approached the 3 USA class winners, Paris, Williams and Glass to arrange video and photo shoots next day at poolside. Sadly Bob Paris declined but Glass and Williams more than made up for it, turning on a sensational display of hard, ripped 100% in condition muscle for my cameras.

This prejudging DVD brings you all of the highlights from the preliminaries with 154 minutes of the best amateur bodybuilders in the world on display. Many of these great bodybuilders now belong to the Golden Era of bodybuilding.
