2018. INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING SPORT.
WHAT WE ARE FACING TODAY?
Today there are lots of “International Bodybuilding federations”. They represent lots unreal histories. The reason is clear – they have no history at all and this is the reason they create the false ones! Every day they are playing their games and fooling people around. People do not think that that these are not real sport federations in fact! Most “federations” are private companies. Among them many have no proper registration by law as International Organizations. No one of them is recognized officially by any serious organization. In 1998 the I.O.C. (International Olympic Committee) refused to recognize the IFBB and Weider brothers sold the IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) federation, their sport magazines and the “Olympia” contest. After this the situation of bodybuilding is unstable in the World. Sport became extremely commercial and official sport competitions turned to various “festivals”, “weekends”, “nights” and “classics”.
It seems that the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International is the only one to go on working on the ideas of Weider brothers. At least we make efforts to do this. No one cares for official recognized sport, but WFF-WBBF.
We have spoken many times about such “federations” before, about the nonsense they are creating in our sport and we will leave them in peace now as there is nothing to say more. Sport specialists understand that those federations play no role in the official bodybuilding sport on International level (see the Global Bodybuilding Site www.wff.lt , read historical articles and see documents on the main page and in the forum).
When we seriously speak about the real official sport, today we can mention only two International Organizations and that are the IFBB and the WFF-WBBF.
Though today there are many “hot” IFBB questions, such as of law, of finance, of book-keeping, of democracy and of doping. The IFBB of RAFAEL SANTONJA even after splitting remains one of the most serious International units of bodybuilding sport.
In 2009 – IFBB split for the parts of the Spanish RAFAEL SANTONJA and the Singapore PAUL CHUA. IN 2017 – IFBB split again for the parts of RAFAEL SANTONJA and the USA NPC (National Physique Committee) of JIM MANION. All mentioned parts are in confrontation one with another today. All parts want to be on top one over another. Seeing this the historic IFBB creators and our real respected friends BEN and JOE WEIDER brothers could have a heart attack.
Created in 1968 and celebrating it’s 51-st year of activities the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) works for the official sport of bodybuilding. Today the WFF-WBBF unites national organizations from 129 countries that represent all continents. Every year the WFF-WBBF organizes over 60 International events in various countries.
The WFF-WBBF received recognition by the Non Olympic Sports Committee, by a number of National Olympic Committees, by a number of Governments and Sport Ministries, by the ISU International Sports University (from 2017 ISU is a Member of the UNESCO at the UN). Even the Vatican noticed WFF-WBBF International: Roman Pope Benedictus XI-th award was presented to the International President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS with the Honorable Medal (Medaglia Ufficiale di Pontificato di Sua Santita Benedetto XVI) and the Pope sent His blessing after the official meeting in Vatican (2011).
It seems today that only the WFF-WBBF International has aims and ideas how to develop bodybuilding on official level. Facing the new ambitious Global projects the WFF-WBBF takes real steps to guide our sport World Wide.
