WPW573 - 2002 NABBA UNIVERSE AND NABBA WORLD'S CONTEST - (137 minutes)
The NPC (amateur) and IFBB (pro) are the two main governing bodies for contests in the U.S., and we have many of those contests, mainly from the mid-80's to the early 2000s. In Europe, there are two governing bodies- the IFBB and the NABBA organization. We did not attend any of the NABBA shows, and do not have any guide photos to post here, but for the most part, the women are in great shape-the figure women are almost as muscular as regional quality bodybuilders. The GMV Video Company professionally taped these contests, and we have been able to distribute 9 of them. We released the 1998 NABBA Universe on WPW 429, and the 1999 Universe on WPW 430. The following 7 titles- WPW 570-567- are the others.
Each show features two 'figure' classes and they call the bodybuilding event, 'Physique'. The figure women are generally more muscular and much more defined than the American figure competitors, and they are allowed to wear thong bikinis and heels onstage. The physique women are similar to our national caliber bodybuilders. Nearly all of the women competing are from Europe and are unknown to fans in the US, though a few exceptions might be Simone Moura, Giovanna Rosa, Anja Timmer, Desiree Dumpel, Claudia Bianchi and Maryse Manios. A few of the contests have a very small Fitness event, also. The entire prejudging and finals are included for all of the contests.
Regarding the number of women competing, that ranges from about 50, down to about 20, and that information and the video running time for each is listed below.
Runs 137 minutes.
