1997 IFBB Finnish Grand Prix
Held in Helsinki Finland on October 4th, 1997, this Grand Prix saw one of the strongest fields of pros seen in Europe for many years. They had gathered in Scandinavia to fight it out for supremacy in the 1997 IFBB Finnish Grand Prix.
KEVIN LEVRONE proved to be a very narrow winner over a shredded CHRIS CORMIER and the soon to be new Mr. Olympia, RONNIE COLEMAN. Nasser El Sonbaty was 4th, although he felt he should have been placed higher.
In 7th place was Finland’s own legend MARKO SAVOLAINEN. He was extremely popular with the large crowd, while Vince Taylor, Lee Priest and Geir Borgan Paulsen were also very popular stars with the audience.
The event was produced by K.P. Ourama Fitness Productions, and this DVD presents the complete evening Finals – including the posedown and awards. The DVD is also a nice tribute to the memory of Nasser.
Special thanks to KP Ourama for the video and photos.
