Some stage and candid snapshots of the 2003 Hungarian Grand Prix. I can't and refuse to claim much knowledge of the show as I wasn't there but being in Oz at the time, I heard some interesting names and placings being discused. The first photo's are of my great buddy @teamsavagerocks with Thomas Benagli; the other photos show the winner @pavoljablonicky (another of my all time favourites) 'Mt Consistency', there was also Alexander Vishnevsky and Heiko Kalbach who both were firm crowd favourites but placed lower down the rankings. Pavol won, Rodney in 2nd, Art Attwood in 3rd, Ronnie Rockel in 4th, Heiko in 5th and Milos in 6th. Paul Dillet coming in way out of shape only managed 14th but interestingly in the video of his posing, he really wasn't that far away...another 6 weeks would have nailed it. My buddy, Eddie, in 9th could easily have jumped up a number of placings and certain physiques could have been swapped around with little argument...but that's the nature of these shows, you put your best out and hope that's what the judges are looking for. Being so far away, I had no idea what was going on, nor that Paul had made a comeback, his posing on YouTube will show you how much the crowd loved him regardless....he was still a beast!! But, no doubt about the winner, Pavol was supreme as always. The following year, I'd be back in the UK, startir another gym and following the sport more closer again....but there were already signs of change from the 90's, Paul's physique just wasn't ready nor looked worked hard enough but the conditioning on some of the athletes were awesome. Tomorrow....a look at how contest ready bodybuilders faces have changed over the years....you may be shocked!!! And not in a good way....like Kerry Kayes used to say to me? Don't worry about the big, full guy full.of laughs and jokes...worry about the guy shrivelled in the corner who looks like he hasn't eaten for a month and is about to die...sure enough, he'd be the most conditioned guy on stage!!!
