2024. Celebrating sixty years of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International Activities and confronting the coming New Year of 2024 -  Congratulating Words of the President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International DSc. Edmundas Daubaras.

I am proud of all our common work done. It is a pity that pandemia and wars made so many obstacles to do it better.

Closing the year of the 2023 we want to thank all of You for the huge work that was done. We have been working much and achieved good positive results in 2023 again. Today the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International federation unites national organizations of 140 countries that represent all Continents.

During the last sixty years of it‘s International activities, the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. presented the highest International Honour Sport Award – the International Honour Gold Medal. Among the World Sport V.I.P. Persons this Award was presented to the President Parliament Austria Professor Alfred Gerstl, Slovakia Prime Minister Vladimir Meciar, Slovakia Prime Minister Robert Fico, the Mecenats Stefan Hrcka (Slovakia) and Jerzy Gotowski (Poland), Aleksandr Gridin (Lithuania), and the Hollywood Sport Personalities Aleksandr Nevsky (Russia-USA), Sylvester Stallone (USA), Ralf Moller (Germany-USA) and Chuck Norris (USA).

During the last period of time the new Country - members were included to the International federation, such as Macedonia.

We would like to underline that in 120 years of the World Sport History it was the first time when representing our sport the International President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. DSc. Edmundas Daubaras visited and worked at the Headquarters of the United Nations in Geneva (Switzerland). Basing on the U.N. our federation knows the way to get out of International bodybuilding crisis and to develop official sport in future.

New International Title. In September, 2023 Rector of the oldest Ukraine Lvov Stavropigeon University Professor DSc. JAROSLAV KMIT proposed International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.  federation President, Rector of the International Sport University (I.S.U.) DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to the respectful title of the “2023 U.N.E.S.C.O. Ambassador of Peace”. U.N.E.S.C.O. (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) organization presented this title to DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. At the same time DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was awarded with the U.N.E.S.C.O. Medal and the Star.

Imagine – we organized so many International Events World Wide! The Official Flag and the Official Himna of the W.F.F. - W.B.B.F. International federation were presented at the most important World‘s Events. Especially important to the World‘s official sport were the our sport live history the 56-th „Amber Prix International“ (1968 - 2023, «Янтарный приз», «Gintarinis prizas“), the 34 -th World Amateur and Professional Championships.

On October 1, 2023 the 28-th W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International Europe Championship and traditional „Liepaja Classic“ were held in Liepaja, Republic of Latvia. A number of members of the U.N.E.S.C.O. organization took part at the events. That were the above mentioned „2023 U.N.E.S.C.O. Ambassador of Peace“ («Посол Мира Ю.Н.Е.С.К.О. 2023 года»), the Rector of International Sport University (I.S.U., ректор Международного университета спорта), the International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS; Journalist, U.N.E.S.C.O. Award Holder, U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Pioneer VALERIJ KORESKOV (Lithuania); famous bodybuilder, U.N.E.S.C.O. Award Holder, Ukraine Bodybuilding Pioneer, Professor of four Universities VASILIJ BESPALENKO (Ukraine).

No one other International Organization, that represents our sport, can not be proud of so long history of it’s International activities. No one of them has so many Country - Members. No one organizes so many official International events. No one of other organizations seek developing of our sport on official level, but the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.. They even do not try to do this. To say more – today all International Federations have chosen the commercial way of their development and nearly all of them  are private commercial profit companies today, not sport federations.

Especially we were would like to underline tremendous work done by the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.  International V.I.P. Officials Lalit Soni (India), Andrej Basov, Svetlana Pugacheva, Oleg Lunin (all Russia), Edita Sendriene, Jurij Stepanov  and Vytautas Mikuckis (all Lithuania), Jorge Cedale (Argentina), Peter Papula (Austria), Alloudin Bhatte (Pakistan), Tolga Murat Balikci (Turkey),  Alireza Rasa (Iran), Omid Ramez (Canada), Amirhossein Pourezzat (Malaysia),  Pibe Rodriguez (Paraguay), Wander Primenta (Brazil), James Davidsom (South Africa), Angelina Romanovic, Maris Sveiduks, Jurans Normunds (Latvia), Vasilij Bespalenko (Ukraine), Gvidon Alvantzian (Cyprus), Sergej Medvedev (Uzbekistan), Simo Bogdanoff and Aki Mahonen (both Finland), Dave Foster (U.K.), Leonor Hilario Greffel (Mozambique) and Oleg Akopov (Bulgaria), Wojciech Nadolski (Poland), Roman Gurjev (Estonia) and many other our sport personalities.

The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International goes on working on the unbelievable huge unique work – the “World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia” (“Pasaulinė kultūrizmo enciklopedija”, «Энциклопедия всемирного культуризма»).  It will be published in various languages. Until now nobody in the World ever dared to do such a tremendous project. We are sure – this way many facts of our one hundred years lasting history, many names of the International organizers and sportsmen will be not forgotten.

In 2016 under the initiative of the W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. International the International Sport University (I.S.U., Tarptautinis sporto universitetas, Международный университет спорта) was established and registered in the European Union. Under the guidance of talanted administrators and scientists now it works succcessfully. In 2017 the I.S.U. became the Associated member of the U.N.E.S.C.O. organization at the U.N.. Professor of four Universities VASILIJ BESPALENKO and Professor LALIT KUMAR SONI work  activelly at the International Sports University.

We would like to remember that in 2012 in Vatican through His personal letter the Roman Pope Benedictus XVI (Benedetto XVI)  blessed the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International activities.

As we have mentioned above we do not mean “festivals” and various “expo”. We mean only official sport. Representing World‘s Fitness and Bodybuilding Sport the W.F.F. - International and the W.B.B.F. - International are the only ones World Wide Officially Registered International Non Profit Sport Organizations that work well for official sport for so long time. New ideas and tremendous work done for the International Sport make the W.F.F. and W.B.B.F. to be the today’s International Leaders in Bodybuilding and Fitness World Wide. We mean the Official Level. The W.F.F. and W.B.B.F. do not live yesterday’s life. We have lots of  new Global Bodybuilding Projects ahead.


God bless all of us in our sincere pray!
