    Background: INTRODUCTION: The finals of the men's world bodybuilding titles, were held in Egypt on Friday (18 September). Divided into the four divisions of heavyweight, light-heavyweight, middleweight and lightweight, the championships were held in the pyramids area of Giza.

    SYNOPSIS: This is the parade of finalists in the heavyweight and light-heavyweight categories. Like all athletes, these competitors spend countless hours in training using varied forms of exercises and weights. Their aim is to build a perfect physique. Diet also forms an important part of the programme.

    The world body building championships are conducted annually by an International Federation and attract teams from many countries. This is Egyptian finalist Ahmed Ibrahim.

    The United States and French bodybuilders won most of the titles. In the light-heavyweight division, Jacques Neuville of France was adjudged the winner from American Tim Belknap and Keijo Reiman of Finland was placed third.

    All divisional winners received a medal and cap similar to the one presented to Jacques Neuville. Over recent years bodybuilding has gained increasing popularity with both men and women. Although it means hours of training each day to achieve the desired shape and many sacrifice to maintain it, bodybuilder point to the healthy aspects of their sport.

    Here are the finalists in the heavyweight division. This section was one of the American victories, although judges had a difficult task in selecting a winner.

    Runner-up was Gunnar Rosbo of Norway. The Norwegian gave an excellent display of muscle-flexing for the audience and the cameras. But it was Lance Dreher of the United States who took the title, with Josef Vesely of Czechoslovakia placed third.
