2020. LEARN REAL HISTORY OF WORLD BODYBUILDING.

BRONE DUBAR. 100 YEARS AGO BEST IN AMERICA.

BRONE DUBAR (Broné “Brownie” Dubar, Daubaraite, 1906-1986) together with her parents and four brothers emigrated from Lithuania to the US in 1912. Coming from a family of athletes and thinkers, she believed in the importance of an educated mind and a healthy body. Her brothers were all accomplished athletes, playing in amateur as well as in  professional areas of sport: Boxing, Hockey, Skating and Baseball.  Chess and books were always a steady diet in the DUBAR  household. BRONE DUBAR found swimming and diving to be a natural fit for her and participated in events during high school. Though there were no fitness sport and fitness contests at that time today sport specialists say that BRONE DUBAR was the first fitness athlete in the history. At a time when sport of fitness for women was not common and the first women's Olympics had only been sanctioned in 1920, she would compete or perform whenever she could. This was the reason that fitness performances of BRONE DUBAR were not accepted as sport at that time. By the 1920's BRONE DUBAR was touring and working as an acrobatic and gymnastic dancer. She also promoted women's health and fitness by traveling and putting on one woman and small athletic demonstrations. As a show woman, she considered the impacts of her demonstrations and how to grab the audience's attention, including adding stunts to her repertoire. Show programs of BRONE DUBAR were original. At one demonstration, hosted at a local YMCA, she jumped from a second story balcony above the crowd and dove headlong into a small lap pool as part of her demonstration. BRONE DUBAR incorporated fitness into her acts of performance and frequently headlined as an acrobatic and gymnastic dancer.  She often incorporated physical movement familiar to modern viewers as yoga and calisthenics along with examples of natural body strength movement.  BRONE’S DUBAR demonstration bookings took her to all corners of the US. From New York to Seattle and from Ohio to California and many places between.  Remember that all World bodybuilding pioneers did the same – they traveled in the countries to perform their power programs in public. Most World’s known bodybuilding pioneers did this. In America that were LOUIS CYR (1863-1912 m.) and CHARLES ATLAS (Angelo Siciliano, 1893-1972 m.). BRONE DUBAR primarily was involved in athletic demonstrations from a few years before the 1920's through the 1930's until the war changed the entertainment industry and doomed traveling shows to history. Today many local newspaper archives in the US from the time contain ads for her acts as well as her demonstrations as evidence of her activities.

A very classy woman, BRONE DUBAR learned to be a seamstress when she was young and always dressed immaculately as a result and would sew the latest fashions for herself. Even in advanced age, she looked like she just stepped off the pages of Vogue Magazine.

BRONE DUBAR was not only a woman before her time, but if her history is known and shared, should inspire young woman to seek and excel at athletics and fitness. She has inspired more than one generation in her own family to follow into the World of athletics on both sides of the Atlantic.

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY

2020. IN OUR ENCYCLOPEDIA – REAL WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

WE WILL SHOW HIDDEN FACTS ABOUT A.A.U., I.F.B.B. AND N.A.B.B.A..

Since 2012 the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) works on the „World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia“ which will cover the period of the last 130 years. Until now nobody even tried to do this. The Encyclopedia will be Published in four languages in the nearest future. There will be much shocking information that will forse everybody to look upon history of the World Bodybuilding in different angle. Ok, let anybody try to prove their historical truth as we do prove our. In various languages we are studying historic materials. There we found unbelievable stories about the World‘s history of bodybuilding. Everywhere with some exceptions we found lies. It is possible to understand when new „leaders“ want to rise themselves by diminishing the previous ones. Often the new ones even do not mention the previous leaders at all. We do work very seriously, but it takes so much time. We think that our book will change totally all previously written „histories“ and „stories„ of bodybuilding sport.

OLEV ANNUS

2020_olev_EN_4m.jpg

WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA.

OLEV ANNUS – WHAT IS IT?

Some time ago sport writer BAZAR KUSTANNUS wrote and issued a book about a well known former Estonia and Finland bodybuilder OLEV ANNUS. It is a pity we do not know this rear language and we can not read the original book… The short story about the book was published on the Lithuanian Site www.15min.lt. This story of OLEV ANNUS seems lacking many important details at least. We will present historical documents, facts and witnesses to make the story more close to reality.

Bodybuilder OLEV ANNUS grew in our eyes and we know very well how it was in real. There are many documents to prove this.  

WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA.

Since 2012 the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International (World Body Building Federation, World Fitness Federation)  works on the unique project – the “World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia” in various languages. In the second book we will publish detailed materials of the “Olev Annus” times. We will tell about the people who organized the first International Contest of OLEV ANNUS in Poland in 1979. We will tell about the people who organized that OLEV ANNUS lost his first place at the 1981 “Amber Prix International” in Klaipeda. People through the life of OLEV ANNUS can see the clear sport system in the Socialist World. That were the times when bodybuilding sport was prohibited and prosecuted in the Socialist Countries and the U.S.S.R..
