2020. UNITED WORLD BODYBUILDING RANKING LIST OF ALL TRADITIONAL INTTERNATIONAL FEDERATIONS.
BEST AM AND PRO ATHLETES OF THE WORLD.
If we speak about the official sport, then being the contemporary World‘s Bodybuilding Leader, today the WFF-WBBF (World Body Building Federation, World Fitness Federation) International unites National Organizations from 135 Countries, which represent all Continents.
Every year the WFF-WBBF International in various Countries holds over 60 International Amateur and Professional Events.
WORLD RANKING GENERAL ITEMS.
The idea to start to undeline and evaluate the copetitive results of the Best World‘s Bodybuilders struck us many years ago. All Internationally known participating sportsmen get points which are added and calculated in the World Bodybuilding Ranking List (RL) year after a year and contest after the contest. Again as it is in our Unique Global Project of the WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA, starting with the times of the Legendary EUGENE SANDOW (1898) the RL covers the period of time of over 120 years. No other federations in the World do anything like this. Also there are different World Rankings for the amateur and for the Professional athletes.
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: the WFF-WBBF (World Body Building Federation, World Fitness Federation, since 1968), the UK Sport Public Club NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Association, since 1950), the WABBA (World Amateur Body Building Association, since 1976), and the IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders, since 1970). Some time ago results of the athelets from new federations of the IBFA (International Bodybuilding and Fitness Association, since 2001) and NAC (National Athletic Committee, since 2005) were included into the World RL.
RECOGNIZED CLASSIC TRADITIONAL CONTESTS ONLY.
In the RL we count only RECOGNIZED TRADITIONAL OFFICIAL COMPETITIONS: the 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 theall Socialist Countries. The USSR Sport Ministry (Goskomsport) in 1987 gave to the „Amber Prix International“ status of the official USSR bodybuilding Championship (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 and various „festivals“ which are not bodybuilding sport contests in real. What we are to list: „Tampa Pro“, „San Chose“, various „Classics“ etc...? What is it if we are 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 a World Champion, not Amateur and neither Professional. How to characterize his achievemens in the World Bodybuilding History? Just to say he is „a big boy“ who 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.
