I thought i'd put this here for others to see as the other threads regarding this are out of date and things have changed! :)

The IFBB British Grand Prix is back and will be held on March 19th-20th at the London Excel Arena. The venue has been switched from what was Birmingham's ICC to the capital of the UK which boasts a larger expo arena plus more seating for the show itself.

The promoters are Neil Hill, Simon Fan and James Collier backed by Weider, Gaspari Nutrition and muscletalk.co.uk

Two weeks after the Arnold Classic with many top pros to either compete or appear and like the Arnold classic, the two day event is host to:

*Professional Strongman

*Arm Wrestling

*Karate

*BMX

*Skateboarding

*more to be officially announced...

The professional bodybuilding events:

*Men's Open

*Men's Under 202lbs

*Ladies Figure

*Ladies Bikini

Pro's confirmed so far:

*Branch Warren

*Flex Lewis

*Shaun Joseph Tavernier (who will be making his pro debut!)

*Terry Hollands

Karate, BMX, skateboarding?

Will be a dog show there next...
Look at the arnold classic... you'll find much more wide and ranging sports at their expo.

All the UK is trying to do is replicate it, the simple things is, if you dont like something you have plenty of other areas to spend your time :whistling: :cool:

If the expo was purely bodybuilding, things would get boring sharpish...one walk around the expo and you'd be out the door.

Add Mr George to that list!
Ah cool, a return to the british gp then for him:), i saw him in 2004 in the pro line up at the british gp when ronnie coleman won.

Paul won the 2004 british overall that year as a middleweight if i recall then did the british gp.

I remember him in the lineout being smack bang in middle of ronnie coleman and chris cormier haha, with marcus ruhl on the other side of chris cormier as well.

Still, he got a very well respected 7th place if i remember correctly, very well deserved as well because his conditioning was fantastic.

Obviously ronnie stole the show that year, infact i have never EVER seen anything like ronnie coleman in person, oh jees. As impressive as zack khan is in person, if anyone on this forum saw 2004 ronnie coleman at the british gp (he was 300 lbs shredded!) they just would not believe their eyes haha.
