The 20-th century was the period when the World was divided in to two parts: capitalist and Communist, in to “East” and “West”. The “Iron Wall” separated both parts giving no possibility to communicate, giving no possibility to exchange the information. Each side knew very little about another.
We know that people used to train their bodies for power, endurance and fitness even in ancient times. But regular competitions started only in the middle of the last century. The first World Bodybuilding Championship (named “Universe”) was organized by NABBA ( National Amateur Body Building Association) in 1948 in London ( UK ).
The first WFF (World Fitness Federation) Professional World Championship took place in 2004 in Vilnius (Lithuania).
