In the beginning of April the International President WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS returned from three weeks lasting voyage to Poland, Germany, France, Monaco, Italy, Slovakia and Vatican.
During this vayage a number of Official Meetings and unofficial talks were held. In Poland and Slovakia coming World Championship questions were discussed and set, some more WFF-WBBF VIP meetings were planned in the nearest months. Among them new coming meetings in Vatican.
Most impressive was the Vatican State evaluation of the positive work of the WFF-WBBF in developing total fitness and bodybuilding throughout the World. For this work done the Vatican Congregat Perfect J. Em. JOZEF KARDINAL TOMKO presented the Vatican Pontific Medals (Medaglia Ufficiale di Pontificato di Sua Santita Benedetto XVI) to the President WFF-WBBF EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and the WFF-WBBF International Official Slovak STEFAN HRCKA (Headquarters State Vatican, Cita del Vaticano, March 29, 2011).
At the same time the International President visited the Vatican Administration Headquarters, the Closed Historic Treasure Archieves and the Storage Place of the historically valuable personal items of all Pontifics of Vatican State. Early morning at St. Peter‘s Basilica the President WFF-WBBF EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS participated at the unique personal Mess.
During this official visit definite future palns and projects of common activities with Vatican were spoken over.
International WFF-WBBF worked and still works on the documents and various materials of World‘s Bodybuilding History. The WFF-WBBF „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ Magazine started in English, Russian and Lithuanian languages in 1989. During this period of time the WFF-WBBF printed and spread through the World several millions copies of the Magazine. „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ is awailable at the National WFF-WBBF federations in all 103 Country - members of the WFF-WBBF International as well as at the most important World‘s International Bodybuilding and Fitness Events.
At the Soviet times Universities of different countries used to change students in between. While studying Law and Philology at the Vilnius State University contemporary International President WFF-WBBF EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS in such studnet‘s groups two times visited Czechoslovakia (1974 and 1976). Sport contacts with Czechoslovakia bodybuilding leaders started at once. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS had constant meetings and correspondence with the President IFBB Czechoslovakia VOJTECH FIALA. VOJTECH FIALA was a smart and active Bodybuilding Official and it was most result of his personal work that in 1974 Czechoslovakia broke the „Iron Wall“ of communists and started participating at the World and Continental Championships in the Western World. It was PETR STACH who won the European Championship first time in bodybuilding history representing Socialist Countries in 1975. PETR STACH performed a complicate multy - pose posing routine accompanied by the music. He tought Western Bodybuilders the posing lessons and after his successfull participation new posing ideas started in the bodybuilding World. Before this at the Official Contests the Bodybuilders used to pose on a small podium. It was like this: a bodybuilder went on 1 x 1 meter podium, hit 1 - 2 poses, then thought for some time and hit 1 - 2 more poses again and that was all. What is interesting that during this „hard“ posing program bodybuilders somehow managed to forget and skip 1 or 2 poses... That was a topic of discussion after the routine.
There are different point of views, there are different oppinions. But on what basis they are built? Often people discuss the history of bodybuilding never themselves being involved in any historic process. Often they only heard something...
International President WFF-WBBF EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS personally took part in many important International Sport Events and still is. Many superior International Bosybuilding Events had happened not only with the participation of EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS, but often he himself was the initiotor of those Historic Bodybuilding Events and Happenings.
For many years among all USSR Bodybuilding Leaders EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was the only one to know several foreign languages. That gave the opportunity for EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to communicate with all International Bodybuilding Leaders through the World. Let us remember the famous International Press Conference when BEN WEIDER came to the USSR first time. Then this long lasting Press Conference turned into a two hours lasting dialogue of BEN WEIDER and EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS.
Again the “Amber Prix International”, Klaipeda, Lithuania, the historic year of 1986. Nothing to do – this is the history of our sport.
After 12 years of being nowhere fare away from sport and after getting personal invitation of EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS the contemporary President IFBB Russia VLADIMIS DUBININ appears on Bodybuilding Stage again. The former Great Bodybuilder was making his first steps as Organizer and Official. We remember VLADIMIR DUBININ was exactly the same level and same size at the best years of the Legendary ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER. Due to the communist “Iron Wall” the fortune was not successful and in that time and that perfect shape VLADIMIR DUBININ could not confront the best Western Bodybuilders.
The 1986 “Amber Prix International” was famous of the wins of the Best Socialist World Bodybuilders of the time: VIKTORAS JUCYS and OLEGAS ZURAS (both from Lithuania). The two Soviet Monsters started their way of Glory (later on VIKTORAS JUCYS ended as the first Over All USSR Champion, OLEGAS ZURAS as the Over All Heavyweight IFBB World Champion).
No Secret that History of Bodybuilding is built on myphs and false information. Mostly the History of Bodybuilding we face today is written for a single Commercial Company, which has fooled International Sport Society for decades (see www.wff.lt, read FORUM topic „IFBB/EFBB illegal financial deals“).
We have many juridic documents (over 600) to prove what we say. Seing them it is evident how for decades we were fooled by this organization.
During the last fourty years International President WFF-WBBF (World Fitness federation, World Body Building Federation) EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS personally took part at many most important International historic bodybuilding events. At many of them EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was not only a participant, but even many of these events had happened under his initiative.
During all his active life in sport EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was always in good friendly relations with the International Bodybuilding Top Personalities: BEN WEIDER, WAYNE DE MILIA, PAMELA KAGAN, PAUL CHUA, SERGE NUBRET, OSCAR HEIDENSTAM, IVAN DUNBAR, VOJTECH FIALA. During a long period of time to set some definite questions the Owner and life President of the IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) BEN WEIDER many times used to ask EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to meet his assistant RAFAEL SANTONJA. Even today EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS communicates with nearly all International bodybuilding leaders who play important role in the World‘s Sport movement.
