2017. EMPIRE OF WEIDER BROTHERS COMPEATELLY RUINED.

2017_ifbb_str_1m.jpg

26/05/2017

IN HUNDRED YEARS OF IT‘S HISTORY BODYBUILDING LOOKS AS ABSURD THEATER.

Everybody interested knows the International Bodybuilding History.  From the first circus athletes and first body demonstrations bodybuilding became a real kind of sport at the end of the last century. Then, due to our respected Friend and Owner and the President of the IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) BEN WEIDER bodybuilding got the two years of experimental time from the I.O.C. (International Olympic Committee) and really aimed to become the Olympic Sport.

All this is fare away now. After Weider brothers sold the IFBB federation and Professional „Olympia“, bodybuilding non stop sanks down.  Today the only one the WFF-WBBF(World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation),  which unites 128 Countries that represent all Continents, still seeks the official recognition of bodybuilding as sport. All others forgot the real sport even in their dreams. Lots of groups appeared and they call themselves as „international federations“... They do not have their history and they do not have any future vision as well. According the official sport reguirements they do not organize official sport competitions. Today bodybuilding contests are replaced by festivals, fibo‘s and other selling-buying  happenings, various „classics“ . Who are sportsmen? Champions of a happening? Today only business and commerce remains in bodybuilding. We are against it!

2017. NAC INCLUDED TO WORLD BODYBUILDING RANKING LIST.

2017_nac_w_ranking_1m.jpg

BEST AM  AND PRO ATHLETES OF THE WORLD.

BASIC BACKGROUND.

Being the contemporary World‘s Bodybuilding Leader, today the WFF-WBBF (World Body Building Federation, World Fitness Federation) International unites National Organizations from 128 Countries, which represent all Continents.

Every year the WFF-WBBF International in various Countries holds over 60 International Amateur and Professional Events.

 

GENERAL ITEMS.

The idea to start to undeline Best World‘s Bodybuilders struck us many years ago. All Internationally 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 Unique Global Project  of the WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA, starting with the times of the Legendary EUGENE SANDOW the RL covers the period of time of  over 120 years.

 

TRADITIONAL CLASSIC INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING ORGANIZATIONS.

Again as it is  underlined 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), UK Sport Public Club 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 International 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 „Various International Bodybuilding Organizations“ and  the „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, to speak definetelly, winning lots of various  commercial „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.

In the RL we evaluate participating Athletes by points: after every participation for the 1-st place in the Amateur Class they  get 8 points and in the Professional Class they get 10 points. Then every place down makes one point less. The final amount of points make the exact Athletes placing in the RL.

 

NAC INCLUDED TO WORLD BODYBUILDING RANKING LIST.

Some time ago the German origin NAC (National Athletic Committee, works since 2005) organization results of the World Championships and „Universe“ contests were included to the prestigeous World Ranking List. The resuls of 2000 NAC athletes came together with the results of the best World‘s sportsmen.

Among the first fifty women athletes was MELANIE KUCH (Germany) and among the first one hundred athletes were  CINZIA CHIARENZA (Italy) and  JUDIT PAECIAN (Hungary). Among the first fifty men athletes was DITMAR HANBOLD (Germany) and and among the first one hundred athletes were  ZSOLT MAJOR (Hungary) and SERDAR AKTOLGA (Turkey).

The exception could be done by the International Executive Council only. Pro Athletes are free to participate at the Competitions of other International Federations.

3. JUDGES AND SCORING 
HEAD JUDGE
The head Judge shall be qualified, experienced and able to conduct the competition and supervise the judging panel. The head judge will handle the communications between the judging panel and the competitors. The head judge will normally not vote unless there is an insufficient number of judges present. 

SCORING JUDGES 
The judging panel will consist of an odd number of judges with no less than five. Each must be qualified within his/her organization and must be screened by the WFF-WBBF International Judging Committee. Scoring sheets will then be scrutinized for competency and further judging assignments will be based on proficiency. 

SCORING 
The scoring procedure used will be of the placement system. The format is judging by selection – as opposed to a points marking system. 
Competitors of each Category will be scored and placed by each Judge according to the judging criteria specified for each Category of Competition (Judging Ctireria -  see our presented detailed judging criteria of each Amateur Category). Judging results are transferred to a “master sheet” to determine each competitor’s final placing. This is achieved by adding up the place votes of each competitor and recording the total. 
Where five or seven judges are used, one high and one low score shall be dropped. When using a panel of nine judges, the two highest and two lowest scores shall be excluded in computing each competitor’s final placing. Ties will be broken by the lowest placing system not most first votes. This deduction is necessary to guard or eliminate judging bias and bad judging. After deduction the competitor with the lowest collective total will be declared the winner. If two or more athletes have the same number of firsts the judges chairman shall have the casting vote. If judges consider an athlete does not meet the required standard they have the right to eliminate the athlete from the contest. 
The number of finalists in each category shall be recorded on a judges list of competitors. Three finalists of each Category is normally recommended. In Categories with a large entry this may be extended to six Finalists.
The use of bronzers, tanning lotions and crème, gels, posing oils or other high-lighting products is acceptable for both prejudging (Semi-Finals) and evening performance (Finals). 
The competitor will perform the routine to her own music which must be on a CD. 
A good quality CD should be used and the music should be at the beginning of the CD. It is to the athletes advantage to select the music piece which can dramatically enhance the free posing presentation.  Words or lyrics on the CD must not contain profanity or be offensive.
