1986 SABBA South Australian Bodybuilding Competition

31st August 1986

It was the first time that height classes were introduced into the Open sections for both men and women, with them all particularly the women’s sections being well supported. South Australia was fast becoming the strongest women’s body building State in the country.

Memorable events for this competition were:

  • The wonderful and imaginative posing displays put on by the majority of the contestants;
  • The high standard of posing and friendly competition between the couples competitors;
  • Extreme closeness of the competition in the Men’s Short Class Division, with all the contestants having previously won or placed second in a major competition and seeing Frank finally smile after being announced the winner;
  • Anna Allwood looking big ripped and confident as ever and ready for the Australia;
  • The awe-inspiring sight of Robert Kulenicz walking on stage to his first competition in South Australia – he is definitely the biggest body builder we have had compete in our competitions and he really shocked the crowd and the other competitors;
  • Irene Nickole showing what a threat she would be in the Australia;

And of course Mr. Big in Australian body building, Gary Lewer giving us a very classy and memorable guest pose. The crowd loved him, and we found out later that Gary really appreciated the crowd reaction. They are just not that enthusiastic in Melbourne it seems – it is good to hear South Australian body building fans being praised for their efforts.
