Due to the political reasons in the early seventies of the last century for nearly two decades bodybuilding was prohibited and prosecuted in the Socialits Countries, especially in the USSR. Most bodybuilding leaders got afrayed and step away, but not all of them. Among them was EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS who on his own risk began the dialoque with the USSR Communist Party Central Committee, the USSR Government, the USSR Sport Ministry (Goskomsport) administration and the most important communist press – Newspapers „Pravda“, „Izvestija“ and „Sovietskij Sport“. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wrote letters, spoke on phone with them and finally personally went to Moscow (Russia) to present the officially registered bodybuilding defending letters the the Headquarters of the mentioned above Institutions. Those letters of EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  was like real „petitions“ of bodybuilding.

Nobody stopped the prohibition and the prosecution of bodybuilding, but they gave permittion for EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  to go on organizing „Amber Prix International“ Contest in Klaipeda (Lithuania). In fact the „Amber Prix International“ was an unofficial USSR Bodybuilding Championship and this was accepted by the USSR Sport Ministry when it began presenting honourable „USSR Sport Master“ names for the „Amber Prix International“ Champions. They say, the „Amber Prix International“ was the World Champiosnip of the Socialist Countries. World level Contests in the Western Countries were no higher in the level of bodybuilders and in the level of organisation, number of the participating Countries. In some aspects „Amber Prix International“ was even higher that those in the West.           



In 2011 the Official Meeting of the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) Interantional Leaders was organized in Vatican to present the WFF-WBBF activities.

Listening about the bodybuilding activities during the years of prohibition of this sport in the Socialist Countries Vatican Congregat Perfect J. Em. JOZEF KARDINAL TOMKO was interested very much. The Congregat evaluated our efforts and named us „disidents of the Communist regime“.

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 International President WFF-WBBF EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and the WFF-WBBF VIP Official Slovak STEFAN HRCKA (Headquarters State Vatican, Cita del Vaticano, March 29, 2011).

During the Official Visit to vatican the Vatican State Administrator PADRE PAOLO presented the the WFF-WBBF Officials 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.

in 2012 the WFF-WBBF International Headquarters received a letter from the State Vatican.
Sending this Honourable Blessing Letter the Pontific BENEDETTO XVI-th once again positively evaluated the efforts of the WFF-WBBF International.


The good and positive work done by the WFF-WBBF International was noticed by the Pravoslav Ortodox Church too.
In 2010 the IV-th International Convent of the Order of Temple (Ordo Supremus Militaris Templi Herosolymitani) was held in Coimbra (Portugal).
In recognition of the new ideas to unite all Christian Confessions Bishop ARCHIMANDRITE CHARALAMPY awarded EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS with the St. Nicholas the Wonderworker’s Silver-Gold Medal.

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, 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“).

During the „perestrojka“ time more and more Ukraine bodybuilders appear and they regularly represent a number of new regions at the „Amber Prix International“. Among them contest organizer ARKADIJ KASANSKIJ (Аркадий Кашанский)  and bodybuilders OLEG ZUR (Олег Жур) and VALERIJ LUCAK (Валерий Луцак).

During the last period of time Ukraine at the International activities of the WFF-WBBF International was represented by the National Presidents SPARTAK VASKOVSKIJ (Спартак Васьковский), VIKTORIJA POSMITINA (Виктория Посмитина) and MARGARITA OLEFIRENKO (Маргарита Олефиренко). From 2012 the National President WFF-WBBF Ukraine is OLGA GLADKOVA (Ольга Гладкова) and she has been recognized by the WFF-WBBF International for this position.

In September 2012 the International WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) President EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  was with the official visit  to Tehran (Islamic Republic of Iran).

All of us know that Iran represents one of the World‘s known oldest historical civilization and culture territories.

At the very first site there were a number of nice pleasant happenings: received a free of charge Iran visa without any hesitation and paper formalities on arrival at the airport, friendly people around, opportunities to stay in  the superious appartments of the best Tehran 5 Star International  „Parsian Azadi Hotel“  with a beautiful picture through the window towards the seventeen  million Citizen campacting city.  

A very big impression was that Iran is a really well developed contemporary country and that the people of Iran do not know about many problematic life questions that we meet in Europe every day.

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran AYATOLAH KHAMENEHE is extremelly respected in the country but Iranians do it in some very calm and polite way.



During the visit of the President WFF-WBBF International EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to the Islamic Republic of Iran  a number of official meetings and visits were held. Then  the huge coming 2013 WFF-WBBF International Project for the World‘s Professional bodybuilders in Iran was spoken over.  This extraordinary Pro International event the „2013 WFF-WBBF Professional World Cup“  is going to take place on a famous beautiful Iran Kish Island in the Parsian Gulf.  The organizers will give 30 000 US dollars as prize money for three Pro men bodybuilding weight categories: 80, 90 and over 90 kilograms. Each Pro bodybuilding category will receive 10 000 US dollars, the Winner 5 000 US dollars.

„2013 WFF-WBBF Professional World Cup“ will be held on the third weekend of November right after the anual WFF-WBBF Professional  World Championship „Amber Prix OLYMPIA“ (30 000 US dollars, next weekend of November, Slovakia Brusno Kupele resort).



During the official visit of the International President EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to THE Islamic Republic of Iran a big National Bodybuilding contest  was held in Tehran City. At this event  the International President met and  spoke with the Iran Governmental State sport leaders, organizers and sportsmen. We would like to underline, that bodybuilding is very popular in the country. Only in Tehran City work nearly six thousand bodybuilding gyms and clubs which are guided and supervised by the Ministry of Sport of  Iran.



At the visit of the International President EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to the Islamic Republic of Iran in September the official meeting with the Governmental Sport Heads was organized in the Headquarters of the National Olympic Committee Islamic Republic of Iran.

Governmental State Sport Official of Iran Dr. MOHAMMAD REZA KAZEM ASHTEYANI positively evaluated WFF-WBBF International activities. He expressed full understanding and support for the Vice President WFF-WBBF Asia and the President Iran National WFF-WBBF Federation ALI REZA RASA. Also Dr. MOHAMMAD REZA KAZEM ASHTEYANI agreed to support and to recognize the coming „2013 WFF-WBBF Professional World Cup“ , that will be held in Iran Parsian Gulf Kish Island.

2013. The Congratulating Words of the President WFF-WBBF International Edmundas Daubaras.



We have been working much and achieved good positive results in 2012 again. I would like to underline tremendous work done by the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International VIP Officials Stefan Hrcka (Slovakia) and Aleksandr Nevsky, a famous Hollywood Actor and Producer called “Russia Schwarzenegger”.

Today the WFF-WBBF  unites National Organizations from 108 Countries that represent all Continents.

In 2012 WFF-WBBF International organized over 60 various level competitions in various Countries. Among them the 44-th  World’s  Oldest Traditional Bodybuilding Contest “Amber Prix International” (Tula, Russia, 1968-2012). Great importance was of the World Amateur Championship and World Professional Championship “Amber Prix OLYMPIA” (30 000 US dollars, Brusno Kupele resort, Slovakia).

Ending the year the WFF-WBBF International started working on the Unique Global Bodybuilding Project - „Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding“ («Энциклопедию современного культуризма»). That has been never done before by anyone else.

Both WFF-International and WBBF-International still are the only ones World Wide Officially Registered International Non Profit Sport Organizations (Bodybuilding and Fitness).

The 2012 activities of the WFF-WBBF International were evaluated positively: the Roman Pope Benedictus XVI (Benedetto XVI)  blessed the WFF-WBBF International and the Prime Minister Republic Slovakia Robert Fico awarded the Heads of the  WFF-WBBF International.

New ideas and tremendous work done for the International sport make the WFF and WBBF to be the today’s International Leaders in Bodybuilding and Fitness World Wide.

The WFF and WBBF do not live yesterday’s life. We have lots of  new Global Bodybuilding Projects ahead.


God bless all of us in our sincere pray!




Since the beginning of the crises in the Syrian Arab Republic, more than 1.5 million people have lost their homes and livelihoods. People have been suffering not only physically but also mentally as a result of constant fears, uncertainties and lack of a support.
In order to support those in need, once again, world’s leading sport organizations, athletes and enthusiasts use the power of sports to promote a culture of non-violence and peace; where social, cultural, political, religious and other differences are respected and humanity and the love dominates.
To address issues which became terrifying reality for people in Syria and boost their physical and mental health and show that they still have friends, National Federation WFF Japan, WFF-WBBF International and National Olympic Committee Syria (NOC) came to work together in organizing 2013 “Peace Sports Festival” in Damascus, Syria (September, 2013).

On January, 2013 the Founder and Chairman of the International Project “Peace Sports Festival”, President of the National Federation WFF-WBBF Japan, Vice- President WFF Asia and a former European Amateur Fitness Champion Mr. EVGENY LATYPOV was on the official visit to Damascus to meet the President NOC Syria Gen. MUWAFFAQ JUMA and other NOC officials to discus possibilities of organizing the International “Peace Sports Festival” in Syria.
The President of NOC Gen. MUWAFFAQ JUMA received Mr. EVGENY LATYPOV at the NOC’s Headquarters, where the decision to organize the festival was reached. Mr. EVGENY LATYPOV and the Gen. MUWAFFAQ JUMA concentrated not only on the technical side of the festival, but also on its social impact. Important question how sports included into the festival (Bodybuilding, Fitness, Boxing, Athletics, Swimming, and Chess etc.) would benefit the society was closely studied.
NOC has insured Mr. EVGENY LATYPOV to support organizing the festival.
Mr. EVGENY LATYPOV visited two Olympic Sports Complexes in order to asses them as possible sites for the Festival. Both are fully equipped for the festival and ready to welcome International guests at the on-site located hotels (currently the Syrian Government and NOC transformed the hotel rooms into the classrooms so the children who live in high-violence areas and/or whose schools were damaged could continue their education).

Along with Professional Athletes from Iran, Russia, Lithuania, Estonia, Slovakia, India, Japan, UAE etc., VIP Guests from friendly countries are invited to attend the festival and support the Syrian people too. Among them: International President WFF-WBBF EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS (Lithuania), President National Federation WFF-WBBF Russia ANDREJ BASOV, President WFF-WBBF Asia PRINCE UPPAL (India), a famous International Businessman and Mecenat STEFAN HRCKA (Slovakia), a Kuwaiti Politician, President Olympic Council of Asia, Member of the International Olympic Committee SHEIKH AHMAD AL-FAHAD AL-AHMED AL-SABAH (Kuwait), Ambassador of Peace and University Professor, a former actor (acted with the legendary BRUCE LEE) and the first World Champion of middle weight full contact karate professional KEN KAZAMA (Japan).

The International “Peace Sports Festival” fallows the same core principle as any other Professional Sport Event. The festival is not discriminatory and it does not serve the purpose of promoting political policies and it is not affected by any particular nation.
The festival encourages participating all people within a given society, including the disabled, children, men and women, professionals, amateurs and those who have never practiced sports, with proper adjustments made to suit the condition of participants. Sports Festival contributes to personal development of its participants. Professional Athletes benefit from the opportunity to communicate with each other and international friends and exchange experience.
For disable athletes, it provides opportunity return to increase self esteem and set new goals.
For children, Sports Festival is a tool which helps them to develop within values related to respect, peace and cooperation.
For women, is a venue for encouragement, and most important the possibility to get away from fears and difficulties women face during the conflict.
By putting all of these people together, albeit in separate events, it also creates a sense of encouraging of one another and not simply competition, and thus creating new avenues of community which can be applied outside of the “Peace Sports Festival”.

The idea to organize “Peace Sport Festival” (former known as “Afghan Power”) originated in 2010. Afghanistan was chosen as the location.
At first it was a single sport event, with only bodybuilding in consideration. However, with time and a positive influence from KEN KAZAMA the event was renamed to “Peace Sports Festival” and more sports were included.
By April 2012 with support from Afghans local community, National Federation WFF-WBBF Japan, Embassy of Afghanistan in Tokyo, Afghanistan National Olympic Committee and private donors the first “Peace Sports Festival” was organized in Kabul, Afghanistan. After its success and positive influence on all participants the festival was recognized by the President National Olympic Committee Afghanistan Gen. MOHAMMAD ZAHIR AGHBAR as the official - yearly based event.
In 2013 the NOC Syria has also recognized the festival.

Very soon on November 9-11, 2012 in Slovakia Brusno Kupele mountain resort will start the real Professional Sport Event – the WFF-WBBF (World FitnesFederation, World Body Building Federation) Pro World Championship „Amber Prix OLYMPIA“ (30 000 US dollars). Best World Pro Bodybuilders will fight for the real highest prestigeous places and real money at the Real Pro Sport Contest.

Bodybuilding fans really love their Great Idols, but they seldom think of the basic things, that do matter for the official sport.

For the last two decades and especially during the last running years the best World Professional Bodybuilders use to participate at the Pro Contests in the USA and sometimes in Europe and only very few of them understand why a new Professional commer if he is not representing a well known International Commercial Company never wins at these Pro Events.

First of all look at the basics. All Pro Events in the USA and in Europe are organized by a definite Private Commercial Company and this every Company looks for the profit of this activity. It is Always business and never sport. Every Pro Event has it‘s definite private Owner who makes business of it.  Today even the names of the Pro Events have no more connections with official sport as the competitions are called „festival“, „messe“, „carnaval“ or another „classic“ activity.

Most if not all of these Commercial Companies use to buy bodybuilders to advertize their products. These Companies are interested in High Placings of the Bodybuilders they own as they represent their business and their goods and products. Do You think these businessmen really throw away these huge sums of money they declare in the beautiful bodybuilding magazines? Nover! These Private Commercial Companies via Contracts and via other ways use to buy places for the Pros they own and this makes all Pro Shows like a theater and not a as real sport competition. All this is well played as in a real drama theater. Finally all businessmen are satisfied as every of them know the price they payed for the place at a Pro Event. Only the naive bodybuilders who worked hard to come to their long dreamed Pro Contest can not understand why they have lost.  Busines is always first. Just pay and You are the Pro Champion in this commercial theater show. It seems today that the only one being legal no profit International Sport Organization of this kind the WFF-WBBF (World FitnesFederation, World Body Building Federation) International cares for the development of bodybuilding in the respected recognozed real sport movement.





International President WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS arrived for the  official visit to Russia.

Together with EDMUNDAS  DAUBARAS powerful contemporary World‘s Bodybuilding Giants ALEKSANDR NEVSKY, STEFAN HRCKA, ANDREY BASOV, MICHAIL  DYAKONOV arrived to Moscow too. Aiming for the recognition of bodybuilding the official meetings and friendly talks on today‘s most  important International bodybuilding questions started.

All bodybuilders dream of a Pro Card and of the becoming a Pro Competitor. Let us talk of this.

Though a number of International Bodybuilding Federations tried do organize competitions for the Professional Bodybuilders, nobody even tried to give for the Professional Bodybuilding the required Official Legal Status by the Law. Only the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  did it. Today only WFF-WBBF and IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) have Pro Leagues (Divisions) that unite Best World‘s Bodybuilders and which use to do it on the serious constant basis. All other International Federations do not have Professional Leagues which provide Pro Cards for the sportsmen and which organize Pro Bodybuilding Competitions (to be frank, most of them have a very doubtful juridical legal status, including the IFBB. Read forum topic „IFBB/EFBB illegal financial deals „  on the International Internet Site ).

In 2012 WFF-WBBF already organized four Pro Bodybuilding Events in Europe and it is going to organize four more in the nearest weeks. All remember that at the 2011 WFF-WBBF Professional World Championship „Amber Prix OLYMPIA“ in Slovakia Brusno Kupele resort nearly 50 World‘s best bodybuilders from Asia, Ameriva, Africa and Europe participated for the highest respected title and money awards.

The WFF-WBBF is the only one in the World to organize Official Contests for Pros, like World and Continental Championships and Cups, that are recognized by Highest International and National Sport Organizations. Pros participating at the unrecognized contests are more like show-men, not real sportsmen from the point of view of the Governmental sport institutions and this is the reason they have never been  supported and recognized officially, especially in the USA. Leading the World‘s Bodybuilding and seeking the Recognition of Bodybuilding Sport,  the WFF-WBBF International has chosen the Official Way of development that is different from other federations.




For bodybuilding specialists it is eveident, that USA quickly looses it‘s International leaders positions in bodybuilding. Due to the decades lasting mistaken politics of the former USA bodybuilding leaders, today we face the negative results all World through. On the Official Level bodybuilding is not accepted as sport in general. Majority of important bodybuilding contests in the USA are just commercial shows for public, more like a theater, but not real sport. Everything is slod, everything money can buy. Does anybody remember a strong USA National Team at a World Championship of any federation?

Bodybuilding in the US is based on many private Companies, which are the owners of the so called „federations“, all competitions belong to them as a private property. This is a business and the owners often are selling everytinig, including contest places. During the last years it is clear as daylight. Nobody wants to develop sport, nobody cares for the sportsmen as they  have no profit of this. Even more – the private structures always fight for profit in between. This is the reason, why the USA bodybuilding lives in the chaotic dissorder and it never ends. It negetivelly influences all International Sport in general. There is no one to think of sane lives, total fitness and  of  the official sport of bodybuilding. But even if they want to, they can not as private Companies are not sport federations by Law.

For our 50 years lasting work and efforts finally today we have nothing connected with official sport, but selling-buying-playing theater only.

When the owner of the IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) Commercial Company our respected BEN WEIDER (Canada) tried to get the IOC recognition, he got the IOC refusal to support and to recognize the IFBB. Then the WEIDER brothers sold all their magazines, the „Olympia“ contest and after BEN WEIDER  died the IFBB Company was sold as well. During the last fiveteen years the International bodybuilding situation goes worse and worse.

After IFBB split three years ago, the new owner of the IFBB Commercial Company (IFBB does not egzist as official International Sport Federation by Law) RAFAEL SANTONJA  (Spain) took some permanent America contest names to Europe, but the majority of them they still are commercial Shows, not official recognized sport competitions.

IFBB as sport federation never egzisted by Law in the US. Bodybuilding sport was governed by the NPC (National Physique Committee), but again, by the Law requirements  it is not true (you can see the historic and juridic documents in the International Site forum topics „World‘s Bodybuilding History. How it was in real“, „IFBB/EFBB illegal financial deals“).

During the last period of time the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  International Federation received letters from a number of High NPC (National Physique Committee)  Officials, Judges and well known-sportsmen. They want to join the International activities of the WFF-WBBF. All of them were invited to come to the nearst International WFF-WBBF Events and start the „live“ dialogue direct.

Let us be frank. The recent private family affair of our sport Heroe, the former Governor State California ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER makes the negative position of the World‘s Bodybuilding even worse.  This scandal in the USA was one of the reasons that ARNOLD took his private contest  „Arnold Classic“ from the USA to Europe too. The first steps of this Private Contest in Europe are not strong, but let us hope for the best.

Plain and clear presentation of the International Bodybuilding problems is the IFBB itself: juridical lies, cheating other International Organizations, lies to the sportsmen (see documents on the International Site, read forum topic „IFBB/EFBB illegal financial deals“). We mentioned above that IOC refused to support and to recognize the IFBB. Today we confront more negative news: the International Organmizations „World Games“ and the „Asia Games“ excluded IFBB from their membership and refused to work with the IFBB too.

It seems that the sole WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) uniting today 106 Country-members and  representing all Continents do care for saving the image of bodybuilding and making it the official recognized Sport. The WFF-WBBF remains the sole no profit International bodybuilding organization, that is registered according Law requirements and working based on Olympic system. Along with the over 60 International Events World Wide the WFF-WBBF International organizes anual World and Continent Championships, it makes still running one of the World‘s oldest bodybuilding contest „Amber Prix International“ (1968-2012).

Many many new changes are on the way of our sport and we are proud that with the God‘s blessing after our constant work through  the last 50 years we have positive results like this finally.




Every year the International Sport Society meets a number of new National and International Federations of various names and various kinds. Being very little public information available people and sportsmen have difficulties to understand what is what. Every of these federations  use to declare they are better than the other ones. But that are only declarations. For example NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Association, juridically it is a UK Public Club) was split three times during the last twenty years and the new federations appeared then. After these organizations also fighted inside and again were split. The process never ends and it gives nothing positive especially on for the Official Sport, for the recognition of bodybuilding...

For decades due to the false ways of development by the former International Sport Leaders today nobody looks towards bodybuilding seriously. Former beautiful kind of sport is turned in to business only. Manipulating with sportsmen, doping affairs, health and even lives of bodybuilders is a „normal everyday‘s“ case. Nothing is official and it seems like never stopping children‘s game. Bodybuilding lives in a closed inner circle, closed narrow society, which most people do not like or even hate. This is the image of bodybuilding today. And this image is very negative.

The main question for every federation today is the only one: what really positive this federation is doing for the OFFICIAL SPORT, what it can do to make contemporary problematic bodybuilding to be RECOGNIZED  and RESPECTED sport not only for bodybuilders themselves, but for all World‘s public society? We say „really positive“ because most federations say one and do the opposite. For example, a private commercial company IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders)  declared many interesting positive things. But some years ago after inner fighting the IFBB was split and divided. Then the Vice President IFBB PAUL CHUA (Singapore) and IFBB Lower ALEX BAUER (Austria) published the IFBB juridical documents. The long lasting IFBB lies was finished. The documents proved that he IFBB is not a federation, it is a provate commercial company. High International IFBB Officials were manipulating with doping. They were hiding doping results, for definite amount of money they let the guilty for doping usage sportsmen and officials remain unpunished. They were selling the programmes of how to use doping. That was the reason of a number of court trials in Poland for the High International IFBB Official and National President IFBB Poland PAVEL FILEBORN. The IFBB was hiding the cases when young sportsmen died. For these reasons IOC (International Olympic Committee) refused to recognize the IFBB. For this reason the IFBB was thrown out of the World Games and Asia Games (see documents on the International Site, read forum topics „IFBB/EFBB illegal financial deals“ and „Various International Federations“). And when this we say about the IFBB  the juridical situation in another International Federations is even more worse. We could speak with humor about them, but all they do is not serious. This is the reason no Official International Organizations communicate with them.




Different to other International Federations being officially registered as a no profit International Social Sport Federation and having historical bodybuilding work background of nearly 50 years, the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International have already tried many ways to go (read in various languages published 33-34 Issues of the International Magazine „Sporto f Fitness and Bodybuilding“ and see on the International Site, read forum topics „Unknown History of Bodybuilding. How it was in real“).

Being the World‘s Bodybuilding Leader today the WFF-WBBF unites 104 Countries from all Continents. WFF-WBBF International communicates with the Governmental and Social Institutions of many countries. WFF-WBBF is in dialogue with most Official International Sport Structures, like IOC, WADA, GAISF etc..

WFF-WBBF work is supported by a number of International Religiuos Leaders, including the 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).

It seems that the WFF-WBBF International is the sole one International Bodybuilding Structure which really cares for the bodybuilding sport to make it recognized and official, to make it real sport as many others Olympic Sports are. It is not easy, even not real, but the WFF-WBBF declares this to be it‘s priority and it permanently goes this way.

That is why we underline that speedy  growing number of new federations does not change the position of bodybuilding at all and it has zero value from the point of view of the OFFICIAL SPORT RECOGNITION.
