1999 NABBA Mr. Universe:  The Show

The 51st NABBA Universe, held in England, enjoyed the highest standard of lineups seen in years. Contested in 6 different classes including Professional.

See the incredible posedown between overall Amateur Mr. Universe FRANCO MALE, and Pro winner EDDY ELLWOOD for the title of Overall Mr. Universe for 1999. Eddy made it Professional Mr. Universe victory #3 out of his subsequent 5 Pro victories in a row. He holds the record for NABBA Universe victories, with Ed Kawak’s 5 victories not being consecutive titles. Eddy is pictured above, front cover.

Class 4 was probably the best ever Amateur men’s lineup seen at the Universe; in fact most of the contenders have been class winners in previous international competitions. The Winner from UK was Andy Raynes – known as “Stumpy” and he was simply sensational. He is a pocket Hercules and also competes in Strongest Man events. England’s other winner in the amateur section was the brilliant Simon Cohen.

The Men’s Tall Class 1 was also incredible in  that some truly amazing physiques such as Gary Guinn and Chris Wall placed just outside the top 6. The class victory went to the fantastic Dutch star Giovanni Thompson.
