There are different point of views, there are different oppinions. But on what basis they are built? Often people discuss the history of bodybuilding never themselves being involved in any historic process. Often they only have heard something...
International President WFF-WBBF DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS personally took part in many important International Sport Events and still is. Many superior International Bosybuilding Events had happened not only with the participation of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS, but often he himself was the initiator of those Historic Bodybuilding Events and Happenings.
For many decades among all USSR Bodybuilding Leaders DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was the only one to know several foreign languages. That gave the opportunity for DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to communicate direct with all International Bodybuilding Leaders through the World. Let us remember the famous International Press Conference when the IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) Owner and President BEN WEIDER came on official visit to the USSR first time. Then in front of public and journalists this long lasting Press Conference turned into a two hours lasting dialogue between BEN WEIDER and DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS.
Today the President WFF-WBBF International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS is in contact with nearly all known International Bodybuilding Leaders of the World. This prove thousands of documents saved in the historic archives of the WFF-WBBF International. The WFF-WBBF today is involved in important International Bodybuilding activities to change the basic position of our sport, to get the official recognition for Bodybuilding. That is why there is no enough time to be spent working on the documents of the History of World Bodybuilding.
Having another University Low Degree DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS studied the Juridical Background of every so called „International Bodybuilding Federation“. The statements about the WFF-WBBF being the World‘s nearly Sole International No Profit Bodybuilding Federation are proved by juridical documents. Not everybody like this. But do not talk, do not blackmail us – just go and register Your own International Federation according the International Law requirements, work for the bodybuilding sport at least fivety years as we did, have definite results of Your own work and then we will agree that all is ok with Your federation. But we do not think the real „owner“ of Your International Federation, who owns it as his private property, will let You see in public the real documents if there are such documents at all. In most cases – no.
For example, all of us know, that NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Association) is registered as a UK public club, not as an International Sport Federation. It looks unserious.
It looks unserious when WABBA (World Amateur Body Building Association) International for many yeras had only it‘s name and logo registered. Nothing more.
On the official level we may call this „international bodybuilding humour“. Every ministry of sport of any country and every serious Governmental Sport Official will have nothing to do with such „International Federations“. And it is so until they do not cheat the Governmental Structures telling and presenting them false information about their federations.
Having new ideas and based on the correct juridical registration International WFF-WBBF works for the official recognition of our sport. For the last two decades other federations use to copy the ideas of WFF-WBBF: model fitness, bikiny categories, classic bodybuilding and fitness, „fit-kids“, disabled bodybuilding etc.. We have nothing against – take and use them. But again it proves the WFF-WBBF is on the right way.
