The Bodybuilding Legends Podcast celebrates the end of each year by looking back 30, 40 and 50 years at the events in the world of Bodybuilding. On this episode of the Bodybuilding Legends Podcast, we go back 40 years to the year 1982 to talk about the major professional bodybuilding competitions from that year. Guest Jerry Brainum joins host John Hansen for Part Two of his interview to talk about the top three major IFBB pro contests from 1982 including the 1982 Mr. Olympia, the IFBB Pro World Championships and the Night of the Champions contest. Included in the discussion is Chris Dickerson’s victory at the 1982 Mr. Olympia in London, Albert Beckles winning the Night of the Champions over IFBB newcomer and NABBA Mr. Universe winner Bertil Fox and Beckle’s victory at the Pro World Championship over Boyer Coe. At the end of the podcast, John Hansen reads two articles pertaining to the 1982 Mr. Olympia. The first is called “Dickerson Is New Mr. Olympia” written by Garry Bartlett from the March, 1983 issue of IronMan Magazine. The second article is titled “Chris Dickerson Wins the ’82 Olympia” written by Bill Dobbins for the first issue of Flex Magazine (April, 1982).
