2001 ARNOLD CLASSIC PREJUDGING, FINALS & PUMP ROOM
This is the earliest Arnold Classic event to be released on DVD and the first time for GMV to be shooting at the famous Arnold Classic. Originally we released all our men’s footage from this contest split over 2 videos. Now it is all together as one huge SUPER VALUE DVD of the men’s event.
The 2001 Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic was held at the famous Veterans Memorial in Columbus, Ohio. It is the home of many Mr Olympia contests of the past.
It created history with Ronnie Coleman (pictured front cover) being the first Mr. Olympia to win the Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic.
