1989 NABBA World Championships: Men – Prejudging

80 of the World’s top physiques from U.K., Germany, Italy, Spain, U.S.A. Australia and other European countries gathered to do battle in the scenic and steamy seaside town of Alicante, Spain – on the famous Costa Blanca.

The event was also taped by us for Spanish television and we enjoyed fantastic lighting – the best we have ever experiences at a contest.  The extreme summer temperature of 100 degrees F plus, and the hot lights produced buckets of sweat from competitors as they battled it out through 12 hours of judging and show.

At the Show we used a second camera team to compliment our close-up camera which concentrated on  extreme close-ups throughout the prejudging and the show.  In the prejudging tapes you will see the individual posing routines of all 50 men and all 30 women, plus the round 3 comparisons.

The Junior Class presented a superb line-up of young physiques – the champions of the future.  A titanic battle took place between Australians MICHAEL MELKSHAM (recent Junior Mr. Universe) PETER WALL, and blond English star CLINT DYE, with Wall emerging as the Junior World Champion.

In the Men’s Over 40’s, former English physique star and model, JOHN WOOD, was a surprise entrant and placed second to Germany’s brutal man-mountain, HERBERT LANG.

Men’s Open Short predictably went to ROBERT WALL (U.K.) who was unbeatable during the whole season.
Men’s Open Medium was won by CASEY KUCHARYK (U.S.A.) narrowly edging out PETER REIS (U.K.).
Men’s Open Tall was won by massively muscular and shredded GARY LEWER of Australia, from the beautifully symmetrical Italian FAUSTO ASCANI.

Gary was hungry for another win – and went on to battle it out for Overall Mr. World crown.  When the smoke had cleared and all the guns had been fired, GARY LEWER was the deserving and emotional winner of the Overall Mr World title.  What a triumph for Gary!  Watch for his extended victory posing for the photographers. This was the biggest win of his whole career.

Casey Kucharyk, Robert & Peter Wall and Gary Lewer were the 4 big stars of the Men’s event. In this DVD see the complete Men’s Prejudging.
