After a happy childhood, running around and playing in the fresh air of such an environment, he moved to France to pursue his scholarship, he was 12 years old.
Soon enough, he became aware of his exceptional potential for athletics. Thus, in 1958, back in Guadeloupe after accounting studies, he decided to dedicate himself to bodybuilding which was to become, in his own words, his "reason of being". Gifted with real artistic aptitudes, Serge NUBRET was then ready to fulfilling his potential of becoming the "sculptor of his own body".

Living up to his words, in 1960 he became the IFBB World Most Muscular Man in Montreal. From this day forward, this exceptional athlete kept improving, winning the most prestigious titles including NABBA Mr Univers in 1976 (London), Mr World WBBG and Mr Olympus in 1977 (New York) and another World champion title in 1981 (Geneva). In 1982, 22 years after his first world class achievement, further demonstrating his lifetime dedication, he became the WABBA world champion in Rome, winning his fifth major title. In 2003, Serge NUBRET offered a stunning last show to his public during the World championships in France (Gravelines)... He was 65 years old!
