UKRAINE BODYBUILDING AND FITNESS.
Historically the first representative of Ukraine on International level was VASILIJ BESPALENKO (Василий Беспаленко, City Lvov) and that was fourty years in the beginning of seventies. Due to political reasons bodybuilding was prohibited and prosecuted in the USSR. Then VASILIJ BESPALENKO together with other Ukraine Athletes used to participate at the „Amber Prix International“ (1968-2012) in Lithuanian Klaipeda City. In real „Amber Prix International“ was the unofficial USSR Bodybuilding Championship and the World Championship of the Socialist Countries. Proving this the USSR Sport Ministry (Goskomsport) used to give the „USSR Sport Master“ degrees for the „Amber Prix International“ Champions (you can see the documents of this on the International Site www.wff.lt, read articles, find documents in the forum topics „International Bodybuilding Organizations“, „World Oldest Bodybuilding Contest AMBER PRIX INTERNATIONAL“, „World‘s Bodybuilding History. How it was in real“).
