Эдмундас Даубарас) invited from Leningrad (Russian Federation) a former famous U.S.S.R. bodybuilder VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин). After loosing at the 1974 „Georg Tenno Memorial“ («Мемориал Георга Тенно», 1971 – 1989, Tallinn, Estinian SSR) VLADIMIR DUBININ stopped participating at competitions and did not appear at the International events. When the 1986 „Amber Prix International“ ended the VIP International bodybuilding persons came together to the appartments of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS in Klaipeda. The reason was to discuss the plans of the future development of bodybuilding sport in the U.S.S.R. and Socialist Countries and to start the new U.S.S.R. Bodybuildin Federation. At the meeting participated: a well known U.S.S.R. bodybuilder VLADIMIR DUBININ, since 1975 representing Russian Federation at the International events VLADIMIR SUBOV (Владимир Шубов, Moscow), 1985-1986 International contest organizer in Ukraine ARKADIJ KASANSKIJ (Аркадий Кашанский, Charkov, Ukrainian SSR) and the historic „Amber Prix“ organizer DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. At that time DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was the only one among the U.S.S.R. bodybuilding leadres who perfectly knew several foreign languages.

Bodybuilding Championship“ (неофициальный чемпионат С.С.С.Р. по культуризму) and started presenting to the „Amber Prix“ Champions the title of the „U.S.S.R. Sport Master“ («Мастер спорта С.С.С.Р.»).
