May 13, 2019

Bodybuilding writer Jerry Brainum continues his discussion on the Bodybuilding Legends Podcast about the Year 1977 - Was it the Best Year for Bodybuilding? In part two of the interview, Jerry and host John Hansen talk about a variety of events that took place in 1977 including Kal Szkalak's controversial one point decision over Mike Mentzer at the heavyweight class in the 1977 IFBB Mr. Universe, Danny Padilla's breakthrough year where he won the 1977 AFAB Mr. America and the lightweight class at the 1977 IFBB Mr. Universe and the 1977 NABBA Mr. Universe contest where Tony Emmott surprisingly beat out the legend Serge Nubret in the professional division and a young Bertil Fox won his first NABBA Mr. Universe in the amateur division. Jerry also discusses his thoughts on the Men's Physique division and the current use of drugs in bodybuilding. At the conclusion of the podcast, John Hansen reads an article from the May, 1977 issue of Muscle Builder/Power magazine entitled "Franco: The Number 1" written by Armand Tanny about Franco Columbu's big win at the 1976 Mr. Olympia contest.
