    Sergio Oliva & Albert Beckles - 1985 Germany Guest Posing





    Sergio's arms were so big, it looked like he had four legs. Beckles looked great as well.

    Albert Beckles just turned 88, & placed in the top 5 several times, including when he was in his 50s. He also won the Night of the Champions (now called the New York Pro) in his 50s. What a trooper.

    Wondering if Sergio had adopted a more traditional bodybuilding diet by then. Saw him in his 1984 Olympia comeback and was a big fan at the time.
