First time the International President EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS came to  the South America. This was the first official visit of the International Bodybuilding Leader of such a Level to South  America in all long lasting history of our sport. By coming to Argentina direct from India, the President WFF-WBBF International EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS this way underlines the huge growing role of South America and Asia in the World‘s Sport Movement. Both the Continents have everything to change the contemporary situation basicly and to become the greatest International Sport Centres leaving behind the old ones, as Europe and USA. And this is one of the reasons that attracts so many Countries to join the WFF-WBBF which leads the International sport today everywhere in the World and cares for sport recognition and development on official level first of all.



Visiting Argentina the International President EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and the President WFF-WBBF South America JORGE CEDALE set the nearest future goals for the Continent. The President WFF-WBBF Brazil CRECKY CHAVES being present, the WFF-WBBF South America Executive Council made a decission and started developing unbelievable 2012 International Bodybuilding Project in Brazil. That will be the highest Rank International Contest „BRAZIL VERSUS WORLD“. Having in mind constant growing role of Brazil bodybuilding, the Brazil having so many International Class bodybuilders today (as the World Amateur Champion CRECKY CHAVES, as America Champion DALVANIZA AGUINO), in 2012 the WFF-WBBF International will collect and bring best World‘s bodybuilders to confront the Top Brazil Americans. Preliminary date of this Event in Brazil is a week after the anual 2012 WFF-WBBF „Pro Amber Prix OLYMPIA“ (20 000 euro, November, Brusno Kupele, Slovakia). Such a high bodybuilding level will be presented in South America first time, so the Americans will face quite a big work and even bigger responsibility.
