In 1984 if we compare with 1983 bodybuilding in Socialist countries was really different. There were comparitivelly many contests in the U.S.S.R. as well as in other Socualist countries. We could say the Socialist polititians let bodybuilding live and the prohibition became only formal. But there were definite reasons for this.

We would remind that in 1973 bodybuilding in Socialist Countries was prohibited and everyone was afraid to do something positive for bodybuilding. It was extremelly important that in 1978 DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wrote petition to defend bodybuilding. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS personally brought the petition to Moscow and presented it to the U.S.S.R. highest political institutions including the Central Committee of the U.S.S.R. Communist party (Центральный Комитет К.П.С.С. С.С.С.Р.). Due to this the polititians permited to organize in Klaipeda (Lithuanian SSR) traditional „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, «Янтарный приз», 1968 – 2023). 1978 „Amber Prix International“ was the first public competition after the prohibition. This contest for ten years became the „unofficial U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ («неофициальный чемпионат С.С.С.Р. по культуризму»). Later U.S.S.R. Ministry of sport (Министерство спорта С.С.С.Р.) confirmed this and started to present for „Amber Prix International“ Champions titles of „U.S.S.R. Sport Master“ „Мастер спорта С.С.С.Р.»). Best U.S.S.R. bodybuilders used to participate at the „Amber Prix International“ every year. Year by year bodybuilding contests were held in other places too. This way step by step other U.S.S.R. countries and places started pointing to their local polititions towards Klaipeda competitions and this way organizing public contests too. The winners of 1984 „Amber Prix International“ were Lithuanians VIKTORAS JUCYS (Juniors) and VINCAS DUBICKAS (Main Categories).

Next by the importance after the „Amber Prix International“ was „Georg Tenno Memorial“ («Мемориал Георга Тенно», Tallinn, Estonian SSR, 1971 – 1989). The Over All Winners of the 1984 „Georg Tenno Memorial“ were the Estonians BILYK VLADIMIR ((Владимир Билык), Juniors) and KOSENKO PAVEL (Павел Косенко), Main Categories).

A few years in a row the „Comsomol Cup“ («Кубок комсомола», „Komjaunimo taurė“) was organized in Kaunas (Lithuanian SSR). Thirty bodybuilders from Latvian SSR, Estonian SSR, Lithuanian SSR, Ukrainian SSR and R.S.F.S.R. took part at the 1984 event. The Category Winners were: Juniors NAUDZIUS RIGARDAS (Lithuanian SSR), BILYK VLADIMIR, CHILCENKO JAKOV (Яков Хильченко, R.S.F.S.R.) and in the Main Categories POLIAKOV STANISLAV (Станислав Поляков, Latvian SSR), KAPCEVICIUS VLADAS (Lithuanian SSR), MASLOV OLEG (Олег Маслов, R.S.F.S.R.), AJU ARKADIJ (Аркадий Аю, Estonian SSR). The Over All Winners were VLADIMIR BILYK ir STANISLAV POLIAKOV.

Also in 1984 two competitions were organized in Charkov (Ukrainian SSR).  The organizer was ARKADIJ KASANSKIJ (Аркадий Кашанский). The first one was the „Cup of U.S.S.R. Cities“  («Кубок городов С.С.С.Р.»). It was devoted to the political „Victory Day“ («День победы»). Bodybuilders from the Lithuanian SSR, R.S.F.S.R. and Ukrainian SSR took part at the event. The Over All Winners were VILTORAS JUCYS (Juniors, Lithuanian SSR) and ALEKSANDR IVANIUK (Александр Иванюк, Main Categories, R.S.F.S.R.). Another 1984 competition in Charkov was of the same name. The Category Winners were JUCYS VIKTORAS, LUTCAK VALERIJ (Валерий Лутцак, Ukrainian SSR), LINAS BALTRIMAVICIUS, RAIMONDAS PETRAITIS. All Winners were from Lithuanian SSR but VALERIJ LUTCAK. The over All Winners were VIKTORAS JUCYS ir VALERIJ LUTCAK.

Folowing Kaunas organizers a famous contemporary poet and drama writer VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ (Виталий Асовский) organized the „Comsomol Cup“ in Vilnius in 1984. We would like to remind that after due to his illness the Chairman of the famous „Vilnius Bodybuilding School“ („Vilniaus kultūrizmo mokykla“, «Вильнюсская школа культуризма») CESLAV TAMULEVIC (Чеслав Тамулевич) left the sport, VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ took the School leadership. Bodybuilders of various U.S.S.R. Countries used to come to Vilnius to study bodybuilding. Ukrainian VALRTIJ LUTCAK was among them. Seventeen bodybuilders from Lithuanian SSR, Ukrainian SSR and Belorussian SSR took part at the 1984 „Comsomol Cup“ in Vilnius. The Junior Category Winners were Lithuanians BALINSKAS REMIGIJUS, BISIKIRSKIJ DMITRIJ (Дмитрий Бессикирский) and the Main Categories won GORELIK EUGENE (Евгений Горелик), SUBACIUS ANTANAS (both of Lithuanian SSR), FEDIUK VLADIMIR (Владимир Федюк, Belorussian SSR) and ZURCEV EUGENE (Евгений Журцев, Lithuanian SSR).

Also in 1984 another small competitios were organized in Luga (R.S.F.S.R.), Tallinn (Estonian SSR), Vitebsk (Belorussian SSR) and in Ryga (Latvian SSR).

In 1984 bodybuilding contests were held in D.D.R. (Deutshces Demokratishe Republik, German Democratic Republic) and in the C.S.S.R. (Czechoslovakian SSR).
