1989 IFBB Men’s Pro World Bodybuilding Championships
Held in the glamorous Convention and Exhibition Centre in Sydney, Australia, the World’s best bodybuilders gathered to fight it out for the IFBB Professional World Championships.
The battle between the top three was controversial. Many thought Strydom should have won and one week later in the next Grand Prix he reversed the placement over Robby Robinson. The judges saw Robby Robinson as clearly the best with his victory being quite clear cut. Bob Paris revealed a stunning routine, and was in his best shape for some time. Albert Beckles was 4th with Bertil Fox in 5th place.
This is a classic contest showcasing some of the very best champions of the 80s, with the brilliant Robby Robinson turning on a virtuoso performance for his many fans. A true collector’s item contest! There is not a lot of footage on DVD of any of these stars, especially Robinson, Beckles and Fox. This makes the DVD even more special to their many fans.
Then DVD also includes highlights from the 1989 Australasian Bodybuilding Championships. This amateur event presented the finest amateurs in Australia and preceded the Pro show.
