NABBA bodybuilding legend John Bubb celebrates 84th birthday.

NABBA bodybuilding legend John Hubb celebrated his 84th birthday this week.

John Hubb competed in the ‘Golden Age’ of bodybuilding. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bill Pearl, Reg Park, Sergio Oliva and Dave Draper were in their prime and John competed against all of them.

A memorable moment for John was in 1968 when he placed second to Arnold Schwarzenegger at the Mr. Universe Tall Class. Arnold went on to win the overall title.
