Part 3.

COMMUNIST PARTY PROCLAMES THE CHAMPION

In 2017 the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) held the 50-th „Amber Prix International“ (1968 – 2017, „Gintarinis prizas“, „Янтарный приз») Contest in Klaipeda (Republic Lithuania). Then the  Global CNN television made a report about the WFF-WBBF International activities that have seen one billion (one milliard) people World Wide.

Bodybuilding specialists and fans know very much about this World’s  Oldest Historic Bodybuilding Competition. We were informing before, that for many years when Bodybuilding Sport was prohibited and prosecuted in the Socialist Countries (especially in the USSR),  the “Amber Prix International” used to be the World Championship of the Socialist Countries, the unofficial Championship of the USSR. And later on this was recognized by the Sport Ministry (Goskomsport) of the USSR. Having in mind the high level of the “Amber Prix International”  and it’s political value to the International Sport, various special services and secret structures use „to keep an eye“ and to follow the competition. The importance of the “Amber Prix International” proves the fact, that right after the “Perestrojka”  began, the Ministry of Sport of the USSR  started to give highest governmental honorable “Soviet Sport Master” (мастер спорта СССР) degrees and other privileges for the Champions of the “Amber Prix International”.
The 1981 “Amber Prix International” competition was exceptional in the Socialist State Politics. Then a Russian weightlifter E.MOROZ was responsible for the Bodybuilding Sport  (атлетическая гимнастика) in the Ministry Sport USSR (Госкомспорт СССР). But the real working President Russia Bodybuilding organization was  a Russia painting artist  VLADIMIR SUBOV in fact. After the Russian Bodybuilder and the contemporary Russia National IFBB President VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин)  lost his titles against Estonian OLEV ANNUS and against Lithuanian PRANAS MURAUSKAS in 1974, VLADIMIR DUBININ  was out of the our sport game for long thirteen  years. After constant insistance of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and his personal invitation VLADIMIR DUBININ appeared in sport society again at the “Amber Prix International” in Klaipeda only in 1986.
In 1981 just before the “Amber Prix International” the meeting of the USSR International  Judges Council was held in Klaipeda. At this meeting participated DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS („Amber Prix International“ organizer), VLADIMIR SUBOV (representing Russia), ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS (representing  USSR bodybuilding comission), ARKADIJ KASANSKIJ (representing Ukraine), INNAR MARDO (representing Estonia), ALEKSANDRAS NOVIKOVAS (representing Lithuania) and some other International level judges and organizers. The secretary of the USSR Bodybuilding Comission ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS told the judges that it is high time to change the USSR leading bodybuilder and to stop the successful career of Estonian athlete OLEV ANNUS. Many bodybuilders admired OLEV ANNUS  and that was against USSR politics. At that time already twice winning the “Amber Prix International” (1978, 1979) and a number of International events in Poland, Hungary and Czechoslovakia OLEV ANNUS was the sole leader among bodybuilders of the Socialist Countries. Under the pressure of ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS the judges of the “Amber Prix International” did as he told them: OLEV ANNUS  was not the winner. Due to this the Over All Winner’s Title at the 1981 “Amber Prix International” went to the Lithuanian Sportsman SAULIUS MISEVICIUS. OLEV ANNUS was in shock loosing the battle to the lower level athlete. He has written letters accusing the International Judges but the result was impossible to change.
In 2010 at the WFF-WBBF Amateur  and Pro World Championship in Slovakia Brusno Kupele resort VLADIMIR SUBOV came there with the National Team Germany. Having possibilities to speak free now he explained the political situation of the 1981. VLADIMIR SUBOV  told the organizers that the sport life of OLEV ANNUS was decided in Moscow long before he participated in Klaipeda at the 1981 “Amber Prix International”. Then the USSR Communist Party Central Committee ruled everything, sport too. Having information that OLEV ANNUS wants to leave the Soviet Union the USSR Communist Party Propaganda Council gave orders to the Sport Ministry of the USSR and E.MOROZ gave the same orders to ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS – get down the Estonian bodybuilder OLEV ANNUS. So using the Judges ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS  did at the 1981 “Amber Prix International”.

Part 2.

PROHIBITED SPORT.
For quite a long period of time bodybuilding was prohibited in the USSR and in almost all Socialist Countries. For political reasons being as the „Western sport“ bodybuilding  has never been supported in all socialist World. Everywhere gyms were closed, contests prohibited, sportsmen and organizers were prosecuted, media flew as maximum dirt as possible to bodybuilding. Under pressure of the Communist Party the Ministry of Sport of the USSR (Union Soviet Socialist Republics) issued a strict order against bodybuilding and this way they had a juridical law basis to follow bodybuilders. For many years of the prosecution of bodybuilding sport in the Sport Ministry (Goskomsport) was employed a former weightlifter E.MOROZ (later V.TAMARLAKOV). Both of them were responsible for controlling the bodybuilding in the USSR. A step below of them was another one representative  - the Lithuanian ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS. Everybody was afrayed to fight or even to say a single word to stand for bodybuilding. As in such a wide territory nobody organized bodybuilding contetsts, but DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS dared to do it first with „Amber Prix International“ in Klaipeda (Lithuania). ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS and other high officials wanted to stop DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS saying that in case the new procecutions started they are not going to loose their Communist Party certificates and they will stay away from DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. Nevertheless DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS did not listen to them and did it on his own risk. The contest in Klaipeda took place, only the DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS played his game with the Sport Ministry and he had to make some artificial changes adding power exercises to the usual programme. Just after this DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS started active correspondence with the Sport Ministry of the USSR as well as with the main USSR political media: newspapers „Pravda“, „Izvestija“, „Soviet Sport“, which used to publishe awfull articles against bodybuilding (like „Trijanskij kon kulturizma“..). Then DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wrote a number of articles protecting bodybuilding and started to collect signatures of known people to support  these articles. It became a real pettition to unite people to protect bodybuilding sport (these historic materials are in the archieves of the WFF-WBBF International (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation). Then DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS on his risk went to Moscow to register and present these materials at the Headquarters of the Central Committe of the Communst Party of the USSR and the Ministry Council of the USSR. When back to Lithuania from Moscow DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS started to receive lots of calls from the Headquarters of the Central Committe of the Communst Party USSR. The discussion started. It was evident that some positive agreement may happen. That bothered Lithuanian Communist Leaders. Finally the telepfone of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was totally swiched off line and they invited DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to Klaipeda Headquarters asking to stop pushing the highest USSR officials. At the same time, though bodybuilding was a prohibited sport, they gave DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS permittion to organize anual „Amber Prix International“ (1968-2017, „Gintarinis prizas“, «Янтарный приз») in Klaipeda. It is not a secret that for many years „Amber Prix International“ was the only one International bodybuilding contest in the Socialist World and until 1988 it was recognized and proclaimed  as a not official Championship of the USSR. If not the „Amber Prix International“ nuobody knows what would have been the history of bodybuilding in the USSR and all Socialist World. Nobody knows how the Socialist bodybuilding sport would have met the first USA bodybuilders that came to the USSR under the leadership of the Owner and life President IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) BEN WEIDER. BEN WEIDER was an old personal friend of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. For many years they bogth had active correspondence, a number of mutual meetings in various countries. Finally they were working on setting a Join-Venture Company (again these documents are in the archieves of the WFF-WBBF International (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation. See documents and letters of BEN WEIDER, http://www.wff.lt, read forum).
