WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

DIRTY BODYBUILDING IN ESTONIA.

WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA.

Today the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  International unites 138 Country – Members and organizes nearly 60 annual Amateur and Professional International Events World Wide. Looking from the juridical point of view the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International is no doubt the Real World Bodybuilding Leader.

Crowning it‘s 50 years of  International Bodybuilding activities, the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.  works on the Unique Global International Bodybuilding Project -  the „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“ («Энциклопедия всемирного культуризма», “Pasaulio kultūrizmo enciklopedija”).

There will be four books of the Encyclopedia. The first book will cover period of time from the old times to 1973. The work on the Encyclopedia goes on.

DIRTY BODYBUILDING IN ESTONIA.

INNAR MARDO (1946-2002; Inaras Mardo, Иннар Мардо)  was the most important Estonia bodybuilding persons ever. Several days we were studying the thirty years lasting correspondence between the President of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS (Др. Эдмундас Даубарас) and INNAR MARDO. INNAR MARDO was and still is the unique historical Estonia bodybuilding leader and the real soul of bodybuilding in Estonia. Twenty years ago INNAR MARDO presented to DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS historical documents on the Estonia International contest „Georg Tenno Memorial“ („Georgo Tenno Memorialas“, «Мемориал Георга Тенно»).

HAVING A WISH DOES NOT MEAN YOU CAN DO IT.

Multiple letters of INNAR MARDO tell us about many unknown and forgotten facts and stories. We are surprised of the inner powewr of INNAR MARDO when his bodybuilders betrayed him and when many Estonian organizers treated him very badly. The reason is clear – they envyed him and his talent so much. We would like to underline that for several years best bodybuilders of the U.S.S.R. and Socialist countries were pupils of INNAR MARDO Estonians OLEV ANNUS  and INDREK OTSUS. Both bodybuilders were winners of the most important International U.S.S.R. competitions – the „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, «Янтарный приз», is still running, 1968-2020) and the „Georg Tenno Memorial“ (organized in 1971-1989). Also under the guidance of INNAR MARDO both bodybuilders won several International competitions in various Socialist countries.

Think of this - who are those bodybuilders and organizers without INNAR MARDO? In some cases the enemies of INNAR MARDO were successful and INNAR MARDO had to leave the National Estonia bodybuilding federation. By the way, Lithuanians were not very happy of the strong Estonia bodybuilding and helped the enemies of INNAR MARDO in their dirty works. The Lithuanians were led by ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS and some official from Kaunas city. Especially big fight against IONNAR MARDO was after the tenth „Georg Tenno Memorial“ But after this no one Estonia bodybuilding organizer ever reached the highness of the work done by INNAR MARDO. The level and inside power was very low of them.

In the “World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia” year after year we will speak about the activities of those above mentioned “heroes”. It is a pity that at the end of his life INNAR MARDO had no enough power to reach the previous hights of the glory of Estonia bodybuilding. The glory that was created by him – INNAR MARDO.

About these details we will speak in the second book of the Encyclopedia.

ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS.

WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA.

Today the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  International unites 138 Country – Members and organizes nearly 60 annual Amateur and Professional International Events World Wide. Looking from the juridical point of view the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International is no doubt the Real World Bodybuilding Leader.

Crowning it‘s 50 years of  International Bodybuilding activities, the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.  works on the Unique Global International Bodybuilding Project -  the „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“ («Энциклопедия всемирного культуризма», “Pasaulio kultūrizmo enciklopedija”).

There will be four books of the Encyclopedia. The first book will cover period of time from the old times to 1973. There will be hundreds of sport biographies of the important International Persons.  One of them is Lithuanian ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS (1947-1998).

ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS – NEGATIVE BODYBUILDING HEROE.

As a bodybuilding organizer ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS started working in 1973. Then during the meeting in Kaunas city he organized the overthrow of the President National Bodybuilding Federation of Lithuania JUOZAS JUSEVICHUS. JUOZAS JUSEVICHUS was one of the bodybuilding pioneers in the U.S.S.R. and Lithuania.

1979. RUINED INTERNATIONAL CONTEST „U.S.S.R. – CZECHOSLOVAKIA“.

During the time of the political prohibition and prosecution of bodybuilding sport in the Socialist Countries still some contests we managed to do with great efforts. In 1979 ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS ruined the International Contest „U.S.S.R. – Czechoslovakia“. This competition was prepared by DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and a number of the Bodybuilding Chairmen of  Czechoslovakia – the President of the National Federation VOJTECH FIALA and his assistants FRANTISHEK BULVA and IVAN MACH. This would be the first time when the U.S.S.R. bodybuilders will cross the U.S.S.R. country boarder that was closed due to the above mentioned bodybuilding prohibition.

After the first visit of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to Czechoslovakia, their bodybuilding Chairmen addressed GENADIJ BALDIN (Геннадий Балдин) in Moscow. GENADIJ BALDIN was one of the five Chairmen of the in 1968 established U.S.S.R. bodybuilding federation which stopped working in 1973 after bodybuildin prohibition. GENADIJ BALDIN answered the Czechslovakians that he left bodybuilding activities. He wrote that there are several still working bodybuilding organizers in Baltic countries whom they can contact easily. Only they dared to go on working during the years of prohibition of bodybuilding (letters were presented to us by another one of the five Chairmen of the U.S.S.R. bodybuilding federation VALERIJ KORESHKOV (Валерий Корешков) and now they are kept in the archieves of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International).

The preparation for the contest „U.S.S.R. – Czechoslovakia“ took four years. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS visited Czechoslovakia in 1975 and 1977. A number of meeings with Czechoslovakia bodybuilding leaders were made. Also he met famous trainers and bodybuilders there. The intensive correspondence was done as well. The U.S.S.R. bodybuilders needed visas to reach another countries. Finally the needed official documents from Czechoslovakia reached DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS had nothing to do with the competition „U.S.S.R. – Czechoslovakia“ and he was not included to the delegation to Czechoslovakia. That was the reason that ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS started his intrugues and ruined the visit.

DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS always was in touch with many World Bodybuilding Leaders. In 1978 he visited Varzszawa „Herkules“ (Poland) bodybuilding gym. Polish organizers planned to make an International Contest in 1979.  They gave DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS official invitiation for the U.S.S.R. team to participate at the event. After the above mentioned intriques of ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS  DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS did not visit the Polish contest himself. He gave the official invitation to Poland to Estonia Bodybuilding Chairman INNAR MARDO. INNAR MARDO took the best U.S.S.R. bodybuilder Estonian OLEV ANNUS to Poland and he became the Over All Champion there (documents about all mentioned events are kept at the archieves of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International).

1979. REMEIKA WAS FIRST BODYBUILDER PROSECUTED BY KALINAUSKAS.

In 1979 over 120 kilograms weighing successful Lithuanian bodybuilder from Klaipeda City  ALBERTAS REMEIKA was preparing to participate at the „Georg Tenno Memorial“ in Estonia. He just finished successful participations at the „Amber Prix Interbational“ and a contest in Kaunas City. Due to the fights inside National Lithuania bodybuilding federation ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS addressed the President of Estonia bodybuilding federation INNAR MARDO and forced him to prohibit participation at the „Georg Tenno Memorial“  of ALBERTAS REMEIKA. So INNAR MARDO did as ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS asked.

1981. OLEV ANNUS LOST A CONTEST DUE TO POLITICAL REASONS.

In 1981 in Lithuanian Klaipeda City was held the most important U.S.S.R. bodybuilding contest of the year – the „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis Prizas“, „Янтарный приз»). During this contest the General Secretary of the U.S.S.R. bodybuilding federation ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS organized the defeat of OLEV ANNUS. The political powers of the U.S.S.R. knew that OLEV ANNUS was on the way to emigrante to Finland and they did not like this. How it could happen that the best U.S.S.R. bodybuilder runs away from the country? The defeat of OLEV ANNUS was organized through ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS. Before the competition ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS gathered the judges and strictly informed them the „how to judge“.  OLEV ANNUS lost his win to another athlete. After the 1981  „Amber Prix International“ competition OLEV ANNUS protested and wrote letters to the bodybuilding magazines of various countries, but it changed nothing. Defeat is defeat...

INTRIQUES WITH GUSEV AND BUCHINSKAS.

Due to the fights with ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS inside Lithuania bodybuilding organization the Champion of the „Amber Prix International“ JURIJ GUSEV (Юрий Гусев) and his trainer were planing to participate in Estonia at the International „Georg Tenno Memorial“ („Мемориал Георга Тенно», „Georgo Tenno Memorialas“) on their own. Then ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS took efforts to prohibit the participation of JURIJ GUSEV. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS spoke with the Estonia Bodybuilding Chairman INNAR MARDO (1946-2002 г., Иннар Мардо, Inaras Mardo) and received his official permition for JURIJ GUSEV to participate. After this JURIJ GUSEV participated at the „Georg Tenno Memorial“ and became the Junior Over All Champion.

Exactly the same situation happened with another Champion of the „Amber Prix International“ Lithuanian  ROLANDAS BUCHINSKAS. Again ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS prohibited him to participate in Estonia. Again DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS spoke with  INNAR MARDO and received his permition for ROLANDAS BUCHINSKAS to participate. Again ROLANDAS BUCHISKAS became the Junior Over All Champion of the „Georg Tenno Memorial“.

1981. KALINAUSKAS SUPPORTS OVERTHROW IN ESTONIA BODYBUILDING.

Multiple intriques done by the enemies inside the National Estonia bodybuilding federation made Estonia bodybuilding leader  INNAR MARDO to leave the federation. By the way, Lithuanians were not very happy of the strong Estonia bodybuilding and helped the enemies of INNAR MARDO in their dirty works. The Lithuanians were led by ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS and some officials from Kaunas City. Especially big fight against INNAR MARDO was right after the tenth „Georg Tenno Memorial“. But after this happening no one Estonia bodybuilding organizer ever reached the highness of the work done by INNAR MARDO.

1988. INTRIQUES STOPPED PARTICIPATION AT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IN AUSTRALIA.

In 1988 history with the intriques of  ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS was repeated. In 1987 the Official U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation was established. Due to the efforts of the famous weightlifting Olympic Champion JURIJ VLASOV (Юрий Власов) the federation was recognized by the U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport (Goskomsport; Госкомспорт С.С.С.Р.). According to the rules all category winners of the first Official U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Cup were included to the National Team to participate at the 1988 World Championship in Australia. Among the champions were two Lithuanians: VIKTORAS JUCYS  (Over All Champion) and category winner  SAULIUS MISEVICHUS. As before the General Secretary of the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS was not included to the delegation which participated in  Australia. For this reason ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS did not give the passports for VIKTORAS JUCYS  and SAULIUS MISEVICIUS. Both of them worked on preperation for several months and finally at the airport did not receive passports and could not leave to the World Championship.

ON THE KNEES U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING FEDERATION GENERAL SECRETARY.

Just before the meeting of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  and the President of the I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) federation BEN WEIDER a meeting of a number of the U.S.S.R. bodybuilding organizers had happened. It was in a hotel of Leningrad (now St. Peterburg). At this meeting participated DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS, the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation General Secretary ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS, ALEKSANDRAS NOVIKOVAS, RAMUTIS KAIRAITIS (both Officials of the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation) and bodybuilding organizer and today‘s famous Lithuania photo artist ALGIMANTAS ALEKSANDRAVICIUS and the best U.S.S.R. bodybuilder at that time VIKTORAS JUCYS. Learned about the coming meeting of DSc. EDMUDAS DAUBARAS with BEN WEIDER, ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS insisted that he is intending to come with him too. Then DSc.EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS refused to take him as he did not want to have any problems from ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS with the U.S.S.R. secret services. During the meeting at the Leningrad hotel DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS listed  „bad deals“ of the ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS that he did in previous years. Main “bad deals” were as follows: in 1979 ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS ruined International contest ”U.S.S.R. versus Czechoslovakia” and  in 1988 he ruined participation of a number of the best U.S.S.R. bodybuilders at the World Championship in Australia. Also DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS reminded the prohibition of JURIJ GUSEV and ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS to participate at the “Georg Tenno Memorial” competitions in Estonia and some other intrigues of ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS. Then in front of all participants of the meeting ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS accepted his fault and started crying and knelt on the knees begging to forget those things.

Though on January 24, 1939 twelve Sweden Parliament members nominated the British Prime Minister ARTHUR NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN (1869-1940) for the Nobel Peace Prize.
