1986 NABBA Mr. Universe – Show

The 1986 NABBA Mr. Universe was held as usual in Wembley, London. After a titanic struggle, CHARLES CLAIRMONTE of UK emerged victorious over MIKE ANTORINO of USA. EUGENE LAVISCOUNT of UK and SAMMY IOANNIDIS of Australia were the other two class winners.

The overall amateur Universe posedown puts you on the edge of your seat with excitement.  Near giant killer IOANNIDIS battles the fantastic CLAIRMONTE. In the professionals, LANCE DREHER of USA was the clear winner in his all time best ever condition.


Sensational newcomers included Mike Antorino, Steven Strunk and Victor Terra from U.S.A.  Piero Venturato, Thierry Pastel, Peter Bosch and Norbert Huellen came from Europe.  Other stars included Larry Bernstein – USA, Ramsford Smith, Terry Phillips, Basil Francis, (1987 NABBA Mr Britain), Vince Brown, and many many more.

In the Junior Class it was a ripped and sensational ANDY HORNBY taking the title with straight firsts from also very impressive ROGER BARTLEY with straight seconds. DAVID KILROY came 3rd.

The Junior Class is ONLY included in the Prejudging DVD and the Junior class is NOT included in the Men – The Show DVD due to running time constraints when this Men’s Show master tape was originally edited.

GMV’s Wayne Gallasch was a judge for the last time this year at the NABBA Universe. From 1987 onward, Wayne was behind the video camera at all further Universe Prejudging events.
