29/09/2014

WORLD BODYBUILDING REVUE. ARTICLE. THE START.
During the life nearly everybody somehow is connected with Bodybuilding and Fitness.
Being the World‘s Leader of the Official Sport of Bodybuilding and Fitness the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International Federation is working over the „World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia“ and prepares the historical Article - Revue of the World‘s Bodybuilding Sport.

The International Bodybuilding Organizations and the Countries that were and still are really important for the Official International Bodybuilding Sport will be covered in this Article. You know that many of so called „International Federations“ just fool the public as they are not official by Law and play no role for the Official Sport in real.

 

CZECH AND SLOVAK BODYBUILDING. ANALYTICAL REVUE.
Working on the above mentioned materials the WFF-WBBF International prepares analytical revue of the bodybuilding sport in Czech and Slovak Republics. The revue includes the history of bodybuilding in both Countries (former Czechoslovakia), most important sportsmen and sport organizers of all times.

Few or us know that at the definite period of time Czechoslovakia bodybuilding has played such a very important role for the International Sport. We will cover the history and we will tell this strory.
The similar historic revues are already done about the bodybuilding sport in USA, UK, France, Scandinavia Countries, Belgium, India, Iran, Argentina, Poland, Belarus, Ukraine and Estonia. Still remaining only a few Countries.

 

PERIODS OF BODYBUILDING IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA.

Last Century for a long time the World was divided by the „Iron Wall“ in two parts: the Socialist and the Capitalist. For political reasons the Bodybuilding Sport was prohibited and prosecuted in all Socialist Countries. Effected by the occasionally from the Western World received  Bodybuilding Magazines the Bodybuilding Sport in Socialist Countries went their own original way.

Quite a long time the only one traditional regular International Bodybuilding Contest of all the Socialist World was the famous historical „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, „Янтарный приз“, 1968-2014). Today all know that during the long years of the Bodybuilding Sport prohibition and prosecution the „Amber Prix International“ was the uofficial Bodybuilding Championship of the USSR (Union of the Soviet Sociqalist Republics). Later on the USSR Sport Ministry („Goskomsport“) officially accepted this fact and started presenteing prestigeous „USSR Sport Master“ degrees for the „Amber Prix International“ Champions. In real due to the number and the level of the participating Countries and Competitors the „Amber Prix International“ was the unofficial World Championship of the Socialist Countries.

Czechoslovakia Bodybuilding as it was in all Socialist Countries can be divided in three periods:

-          First period until 1975. Then due to the initiative of the President Czechoslovakia National Bodybuilding Federation VOTECH FIALA this Federation joined the International Sport Society and get political permittion to participate at the private IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) Commercial Company World and Europe Championships. For a long time the Czechoslovakia was the only one Socialsit Country which had this unique permittion. No one other Socialist Country could do the same for a long time.

 

-          Second period until 1988, when Bodybuilding Sport was under severe prosecution in the Socialist Countries

 

-          Third period after 1991, when the National Bodybuilding Organizations of all Socialist Countries felt real freedom to join the International Bodybuilding Sport Society.

 

We will speak about each period individually.

 

THE BEGINNING.

The history of the Czechoslovakia Bodybuilding starts in 1967. Then the first Czechoslovakia Bodybuilder JURAJ VISNY was known  after a number of sucessfull contests on International Level.

CZECHOSLOVAKIA MOVES AS A  ROCKET.

In 1975 for two months DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  was working in Prague. Remember - it was the time when for political reasons Bodybuilding in all Socialist Countries was prohibited and prosecuted. Being afrayed nobody of the Sport Leaders in the Socialist Countries dared to do anything to develop Bodybuilding (more information and documents about this are published in various languages in the International Magazines „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ («Спортивный фитнес и культуризм») and on the International Web Site www.wff.lt, read Articles on the main page and forum topics „World Bodybuilding History. How it was in real“ and „Various International Organizations“).

1975 was the unique year for Czechoslovakia bodybuilders. Then the  President Czechoslovakia National Bodybuilding Federation was VOJTECH FIALA.  Due to VOJTECH FIALA personal efforts and personal relations with the Government Czechoslovakia and a number of International Organizations Czechoslovakia Federation got the unique political permittion to participate at the Competitions of the „Western World“. That were the Contests organized by the Owner and the President of Commercial IFBB Company BEN WEIDER. This was the unbelievable Winning of all Socialist bodybuilders as for nearly two next decades no other National Federation af any Socialist Countiries could participate in the „Western World“, but Czechoslovakia.

After meeting the President Czechoslovakia National Bodybuilding Federation VOJTECH FIALA  in 1975 DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  could not only watch but he could even to participate at the very important International Bodybuilding Events as well. Then DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was invited as a VIP Guest to participate at two Meetings of the Czechoslovakia National Bodybuilding Federation Executive Council in Brno. Another Czechoslovakia Bodybuilding Leader Professor FRANTISEK BULVA  was present at the above mentioned Meetings too. Among other guestions the matter of the relations with the USSR Bodybuilding was discussed over. In order to continue the relations the Executive Council appointed IVAN MACH to be responsible for the USSR matters (later Ivan Mach became the President of the Czechoslovakia National Bodybuilding Federation).

Under the initiative of the President VOJTECH FIALA  DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS again as a VIP Guest attended the Camp of the National Bodybuilding Team of Czechoslovakia. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  personally met and spoke with the Czechoslovakia Team Leaders PETR STACH, PETR TLAPAK, ALOIS PEK  and a number of other Bodybuilders and National Trainers. In 1975 PETR STACH  was the first historical representative of the Socialist World who became Europe Bodybuilding Champion. Then in Sweden Czechoslovakia Bodybuilders was a shok for the „Western“ representatives as they demnostrated them a beautiful complex individual routines. Until this routine compositions of the „Western“ Bodybuilders vere plain and often primitive.

 

SOCIALIST COUNTRIES BODYBUILDING LITERATURE.

Through the time of the prohibition of bodybuilding sport in the Socialist Countries nobody even dreamed about the bodybuilding literature. The exception was in Czechoslovakia Bratislava issued  „Trener“ Magazine (in nineties a German DDR Weight Lifting Magazine started to publish some information too). During this time DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  used to give articles and contest information for these Magazines. Also for BEN WEIDER‘S „Flex“ magazine. All magazines used to publishe the DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS given materials. First of all it was information from the World‘s Oldest Traditional Bodybuilding Contest, the only one anual International Bodybuilding Event in all Socialist Counties, the „Amber Prix International“ (1968-2014). The Czechoslovakia „Trener“ Magazines were published by JOZEF MAZAK and later by MILAN PERDOCH.

 

ONE MORE STEP AGAINST COMMUNIST REGIME.

The first great victory against the political Communist Regime during the time of  prohibition and prosecution of bodybuilding sport in the Socialist Countries was achieved in 1977 by personal efforts and personal risk of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. Then the USSR political power gave him the unique exceptional permittion to organize anual bodybuilding  contest „Amber Prix International“ in Klaipeda, Lithuania.

That were the exact activities and actions of the President WFF-WBBF International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS which during his  Official Visit to the Vatican Administration were named by the Vatican Congregat Prefect J. Em. JOZEF KARDINAL TOMKO  as the „dissident“ actions against the political Communist Regime (2011).

For this work done the Vatican Congregat Perfect J. Em. JOZEF KARDINAL TOMKO presented the Vatican Pontific Medal (Medaglia Ufficiale di Pontificato di Sua Santita Benedetto XVI) to the International President WFF-WBBF DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  (Headquarters State Vatican, Cita del Vaticano, March 29, 2011). More information and documents about all these matters are published in various languages in the International Magazines „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ («Спортивный фитнес и культуризм») and on the International Web Site www.wff.lt, read Articles on the main page and forum topics „World Bodybuilding History. How it was in real“ and „Various International Organizations“.

In 1977 already for the second time in a row DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  went to work in Czechoslovakia for two months again. After the first real political victory to organize „Amber Prix International“ was achieved,  DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS went to Prague with another unbelievable brave International idea that did not corresponded with the political Communist Regime again. During the time of bodybuilding prohibition DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS set a plan to organize International Bodybuilding Competition between USSR and Czechoslovakia National Bodybuilding Teams. Thet was the unbelievable fantastic idea. First the contest should be organized in Klaipeda (Lithuania) and after in Prague. The USSR and Lithuania Sport Stuff did not support DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. Even more, they wanted to stop and thretenned him. But the big wish of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to do good for the bodybuilding sport was very big and he dared to go on.

Then in Prague were organized a number of mutual meetings of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  and the President Czechoslovakia National Bodybuilding Federation VOJTECH FIALA  and his assistant IVAN MACH. After this all of them met the Chairman of the Ministry Sport Czechoslovakia. During these meetings were set and spoken all details to fulfil the International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS idea.

It was very good that Czechoslovacs were positive towards DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS International plans as the Czechoslovakia bodybuilding was on the same way as the prohibited USSR and Lithuania sport. All of us had to behave brave in order to get the positive results in standing against the bodybuilding sport enemies we had to use not standard methods.

Nobody of the Bodybuilding Sport Leaders believed in success, but DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  won again. It was the second time DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  managed to make the Political Communist Regime Officials (not Sport officials who were afrayed to move!!!) to beleive of the necessity of the International Sport Cooperation between the Socialist Countries. In Bodybuilding as well. Especially it was about the Czechoslovakia Republic which was right after the 1968 unsuccessfull  anti – Communist Revolution.  The polititians a little changed DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  palns and suggested to organize the first International Bodybuilding Event in Czechoslovakia Prague and only after this in Klaipeda. But that was not so important . We won again!

Step by step DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS received for all top USSR Bodybuilders personal invitations to participate in Prague in 1978. The best bodybuilders of the USSR were the Lithuanian ones and that made DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  contest preparation work much easier. It seemed that it is the time to make the last finishing touches... Unfortunatelly some bad sides of the human being appeared – the envy. The USSR and Lithuania Bodybuilding Leaders who were afrayed to support DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  initiatives and works before, now they could not stand the success of the coming International Project. They wrote blackmailing letters to the Political Police. And their intriques and activites ruined the plans and all the hard work done went to zero. Later on the same USSR Bodybuilding Officials many times did the same „devils“work  - they offended and blackmailed their collegues. It happened during the first visits of the Owner and the President of the IFBB Commercial Company BEN WEIDER to the USSR (1974 and 1987). They organized International intriques  about the Over All „Amber Prix International“ Champion OLEV ANNUS (Estonia, 1981). They organized International intriques  about the Over All „Amber Prix International“ Champions ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS  and JURUJ GUSEV (Lithuania, 1980-1981). They organized International intriques  about the Over All „Amber Prix International“ Champions VIKTORAS JUCYS  and SAULIUS MISEVICIUS (Lithuania, 1988). End a number of more similar facts...

2014. TWO EU SUPPORTED INTERNATIONAL WFF-WBBF PROJECTS.

eu_1d.jpg

UNIQUE GLOBAL INTERNATIONAL WORK OF WFF-WBBF.

As we were informing before, the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International and a number of it‘s partners starts the two unique huge International Sport Projects. Both Projects are supported and financed by the EU (European Union). The Projects will start in 2015 and last up to three years and cover the common Budget of nearly 2 500 000 Euro.

Today having the final documents in front of us, the WFF-WBBF International underlines the Partnets of the WFF-WBBF National Federations from Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Slovakia, Germany and Lithuania and a number of Partner-Companions of Sport Organizations from Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Slovenia, Czech and Turkey.

 

WFF-WBBF IN THE INTERNATIONAL SPORT PROJECT.

Working on the mentioned projects the WFF-WBBF   International Federation  has signed the preliminary documents with various sport organizations of the 12 EU Countries.

All partners together will work at the mentioned below two EU International Projects. The work goes on with full power now.

By the way, all other so called „International Organizations“ that represent Bodybuilding and Fitness can not do the same. The reason is clear as daylight – they have no Official Registration By Law. These „International Organizations“ (like IFBB, International Federation of Body Builders,  WABBA, World Amateur Body Building Association, NABBA, National Amateur Body Building Association and etc.) even ever do not try to develop our sport on the Official Level and they do not seek the Official Recognition of Bodybuilding and Fitness as Sport Discipline.

See the documents in various languages on the International Site www.wff.lt, read Articles and Forum topics, see the materials in the International WFF-WBBF Magazines „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ („Sportinis fitnesas ir kultūrizmas“, „Спортивный фитнес и культуризм») that are issued from 1998.

 

EU SUPPORTED AND FINACED PROJECTS. EU SUPPORTED PROJECTS – NOTHING NEW.

The WFF-WBBF  International started working with the EU Projects in 2009 first. That was the Healthy Fitness Project, which included Lithuania Klaipeda City children, pupils and students from the City Schools and Colledges. We did the Project, made Accounts and received the positive evaluation of the work done from the EU.

 

STEP BY STEP EU AIMS FOR TOTAL FITNESS.

From time to time the WFF-WBBF International gets various preposals of collaboration fron other different International Organizations. That were the GAISF before. Then the  International Non - Olympic Committee (INOC).

In April 2014 the WFF-WBBF International Headquarters received preposition to start working on two big International Total Fitness Projects under the sponsorship and supervision of the EU. These Projects will include 12 EU Countries and a number of other kind Partners and they will  aim to the same work that the WFF-WBBF International is doing for a long time every day  even without having normal financing. That are the edicational International Trainer‘s, Judges  and Sportsmen Seminars, Conferences, Congresses, International Sport Camps and healthy conditional Fitness and other kind of  International  Sport Events.

The WFF-WBBF agreed and right now started working on the mentioned International Projects which will cover the period of time from 2014 to 2017.

 

17 HOURS REPORTS ON EUROSPORT TELEVISION.

As all of us know thet the Fitness Sport started in 1927 in New York (USA) by a famous American BRONE DUBAR.

Historically the WFF-WBBF International activities bagan with the World‘s Oldest  Traditional „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis Prizas“, „Янтарный приз», 1968-2014)  Contests in Lithuania in 1968.

Later on while developing fitness sport on huge and wide International level, the WFF-WBBF  International Federation started it‘s activities with the popular International Competitions named „WFF World Grand Prix“ (1991-1997). In fact that were real first unoffricial World Fitness Championships in the World.

The first Official World Fitness Championship was held in 1998 in Lithuania Palanga Sea Resort. This extraordinary successfull International Event was led by the Chairman Organizing Committee the Minister of the State Reform and Municipal Affairs Republic Lithuania KESTUTIS SKREBYS (Kęstutis Skrebys). The World Championship collected over 200 Atheletes from over 30 Countries.

During the above mentioned period of time the WFF-International worked closely with „Eurosport“ television.

At that time the WFF federation had seventeen hours on „Eurosport“ for it‘s regular reports (you may see the detailed information on International Internet Page www.wff.lt, see „Articles“ on the main page and also read forum topics „International Bodybuilding and Fitness  Organizations“ and „World Bodybuilding History. How it was in real“).

Today working with large International Projects and among them the EU supported Projects as well, the WFF-WBBF International really aims to start working with the „Eurosport„ television again.

 

WORKING WITH EU PROJECTS WFF-WBBF INTERNATIONAL WILL REGISTER WFF-WBBF UNIVERSITY.

Some time ago the WFF-WBBF International was invited by the International Non-Olympic Committee – INOC. The INOC invites Application from IFs- International Sports Federations (Non-Olympic Sports) to become Member of World second largest sports organization after Olympic (IOC).

Today the WFF-WBBF International received invitation to join the activities of the INOU (International Non-Olympic University). INOU invites WFF-WBBF International to introduce their sport courses under INOU platform.

The main purpose of the collaboration is to develop sports and sports research community to drive right path and get recognized certification. INOU appreciates WFF-WBBF effort and require positive response for collaboration.

But the WFF-WBBF  International aims to set and register it‘s own International Public University of the same kind as the INOU one. The today‘s WFF-WBBF International work on the EU financed Projects goes together with the planned work. That will make the work much easy.

WORLD BODYBUILDING RANKING LIST. BEST AM AND PRO ATHLETES OF THE WORLD.

2011o456m.jpg

BASIC BACKGROUND.

Being the World‘s Bodybuilding Leader, today the WFF-WBBF (World Body Building Federation, World Fitness Federation) International unites National Organizations from 117 Countries, which represent all Continents. Every year WFF-WBBF International in various Countries holds over 60 International Amateur and Professional Events.

 

GENERAL ITEMS.

The idea to s tart to undeline Best World‘s Bodybuilders struck us many years ago. Known participating sportsmen get pionts which are added and calculated in the World Bodybuilding Ranking List (RL) year after a year.  Again as it is in our Global Project  of the WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA, starting with the Legendary EUGENE SANDOW the RL covers the period of time of 120 years.

 

TRADITIONAL CLASSIC INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING ORGANIZATIONS.

Again as it is in the WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA, the RL counts only the traditional classic International Bodybuilding Organizations from the year these organizations stated their first official activities: WFF-WBBF (World Body Building Federation, World Fitness Federation, since 1968), NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Association, since 1950), WABBA (World Amateur Body Building Association, since 1976), and IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders, since 1959).

 

RECOGNIZED CLASSIC TRADITIONAL CONTESTS ONLY.

In the RL we count only RECOGNIZED TRADITIONAL OFFICIAL COMPETITIONS: Amateur and Professional World and Continent Championships and the „Universe“ contest. As an exclusion to the mentioned above we count the results of the famous „Amber Prix International“ as for long time having no other possiblities  due to  political reasons  this contest  served as the World Amateur Championship of the Socialist Countries (see International Internet Site www.wff.lt, read in diferent languages articles and forum topics „International Bodybuilding Organizations“ and „World Bodybuilding History. How it was in real“).

For example, in the WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA  and the RL we wanted to give real respect to a number of famous World Class Bodybuilders but unfortunatelly during all their sport carrieer they participated only at the unofficial commercial shows which are not bodybuilding sport contest in real. What we are to list: „Tampa Pro“, „San Chose“, various „Classics“  etc... What is it looking from the piont of view of the Official Traditional Sport? Ask any Ministry of Sport of any Country and the answer is always the same – it is Nothing valuable. For example, winning lots of various „shows“  a great bodybuilder DENNIS JAMES has never been a Continental or World Champion, not Amateur and  neither Professional. How to characterize him in the World Bodybuilding History? Just to say he won a lot of the competitions that were not Official???

 

WORLD RANKING LIST POINT SYSTEM.

We evaluate participating Athletes by points: after every participation for the 1-st place the Amateurs get 8 points and the Professionals get 10 points. Then every place down makes one point less.
