Get the latest results and pictures right here from the 2006 Muscle Beach International Classic! The show was held May 29th in Venice, California.


The Muscle Beach International Classic Bodybuilding and Figure competition was held this Memorial Weekend at the legendary home of bodybuilding - Muscle Beach Venice. Fifty excellent athletes competed in the sun and experienced the nostalgia of past bodybuilding legends.

The Norwegians swept the overall winners with Kim Torgersen, overall men's, Oslo Norway, Marthe Sundby, overall women's, Oslo and Hege Mathison overall figure, Hammertest Norway. The Tuff Stuff best posing routine was awarded to Scott Smolchuck from Chino Hills California for his excellent posing routine.

Among the highlights of the show was the presentation of the Muscle Beach Venice Bodybuilding Hall of Fame awards sponsored by Iron Man Magazine. Legendary Mickey Hargitay brought the audience to tears as he described his bodybuilding career and told the fans that bodybuilders are not just the muscle of the body but also exhibit the muscle of their brain.

Glenn Sundby one of the original founders of Muscle Beach in Santa Monica and Samir Bannout Mr. Olympia 1983 were on hand to receive their awards.

In recognition of the men and women of the Armed Forces the show opened with an F-16 flyover and an induction ceremony of new recruits by Colonel Rick Reaser. Static equipment from the Army was on display and everyone enjoyed the challenge of the climbing wall supervised by Army Sergeants.

The Air Force Commanders Jazz Ensemble played both days of the event and were a highlight of the afternoons.

World Gym International hosted the event and along with other vendors including Bodybuilding.com, House of Pain, GetShreded.com, Apex Nutrition and INSTONE offered the public education and giveaways to promote health and fitness.
