Nasser El Sonbaty was a Bosnian-Egyptian IFBB professional bodybuilder. Sonbaty was born in Stuttgart. His father was Egyptian, while his mother was Bosniak, from Novi Pazar (then in Yugoslavia, now Serbia). Sonbaty was a graduate of the University of Augsburg with a degree in history, political science, and sociology. He had two sisters and two brothers.
Sonbaty began bodybuilding in 1983. His first competition was a Junior State Championship in Germany in 1985, where he placed 6th. His first appearance in the Mr. Olympia competition was in 1994, where he placed 7th. In total, Sonbaty competed in 13 amateur shows and 53 IFBB Pro shows. He qualified for 10 consecutive Mr. Olympia contests and entered nine Mr. Olympia competitions. His best placing in the Mr. Olympia competition was in 1997, where he placed 2nd.
Sonbaty was known for posing and training while wearing his trademark round spectacles; alongside his fluency in several languages, this is likely the basis for his nickname, "The Professor". Despite weighing over 300 lbs in the offseason, he could still show his full abdominal muscles. He has been featured in many international fitness and bodybuilding magazines articles as well as being pictured on over 60 covers.
He died in his sleep during a visit to Cairo on March 20, 2013.
