A number of the Heads of the foreign delegations took part at the ceremony.

STUDENT OF FAMPOUS VILNIUS „VICTORIA“ GYM.

Fifty years ago the International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  met VALERIJ KORESKOV at the famous Vilnius „Victoria“ gym. VALERIJ KORESKOV was attending this gym regularly, had all the time great shape but never took part at the competitions. At that time „Victoria“gym  was run by the genious trainers CESLAV TAMULEVIC  and VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ. Both trainers prepared a number of the unique and extremelly high level champions of the historic „Amber Prix International“ contest. At taht time many famous people attended „Victoria“ gym, among them the former Prime Minister Republic Lithuania GEDIMINAS KIRKILAS, the Head of the State Control Committee RISARDAS KRINICKIS. The specialists know very well that after the prohibition and prosecution of bodybuilding in the Socialist Countries the „Amber Prix International“ was recognized by the U.S.S.R. Sport Ministry (Goskomsport U.S.S.R.) as official U.S.S.R. bodybuilding Championaship. The Sport Ministry started presenting the high official  „Sport Master“ names to the champions of the „Amber Prix International“. After the evaluating historic events of those years the specialists decided that the „Amber Prix International“ was the real World Championship of the Socialist Countries in fact. The political and social value, the level of the organizers, the level of participating athletes was exactly the same as it was at those years in the „Western“ World or even much better.

In 2011 during the Official Visit of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International delegatyion to the Vatican our activities during the socialist times were named as „disidentic“ towards the Communist Regime. For the work done in those years the President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was awarded with the medal of the Roman Pope (Medaglia Ufficiale di Pontificato di Sua Santita Benedetto XVI, any interested may find articles and historic documents on Global Site www.wff.lt at the main page and in forum topics).

WORDS OF INTERNATIONAL PRESIDENT

2021_aps_EN_1m.jpg

31/12/2020

2021. Celebrating fifty four of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International Activities and confronting the coming New Year of 2021 -  Congratulating Words of the President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International DSc. Edmundas Daubaras.

Closing the year of the 2020 we want to thank all of You for the huge work that was done. Corona virus tried to stop us but we managed to continue our work. We have been working much and achieved good positive results in 2020 again. Today the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International federation unites national organizations of 136 countries, that represent all Continents. Some time ago Kuwait joined the W.F.F. - W.B.B.F. activities.

In 2020 the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. organized many contests in various countries. The year began with the official visit to Ukraine in January. There were a number of International activities in the city of Lvov. Then for the social work done the International Vice President LALIT KUMAR SONI (India) was presented with the “Honour Professor’s” title by the oldest Ukraine Stavropigion University. Also the International President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and one of bodybuilding pioneers in the Socialist Countries a known writer and journalist VALERIJ KORESHKOV were presented with the U.N.E.S.C.O. diplomas.

In February and March, 2020 a number of International happenings were held in India Ludhiana and Delhi Cities. First time all International Chairmen were working together in India: President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS, Vice Presidents ANDREJ BASOV and LALIT SONI.

After this a corona virus started in most countries and the calendar of planned works was changed totally. Nevertheless many local contests were organized in various countries.

In September the 31-st World and Europe Championship was held in Klaipeda, Lithuania. It was held together with the historic World’s oldest competition the 53-d “Amber Prix International” (1968-2020, «Янтарный приз», „Gintarinis prizas“). To make competitions successful helped International Specialists: EDITA SENDRIENE, SVETLANA PUGACHEVA  and UGNE RAUDYTE DAUBARIENE. After it for the Chairmen of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International Official meeting at the Parliament Republic Lithuania was held. During the Official Visit to the Parliament the Member of the Parliament Youth and Sport Commission GEDIMINAS VASILIAUSKAS was present at the event. Then a number of the World Bodybuilding Legends were honored and awarded with the International Honor Silver Medal: an U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Pioneer, one of five Chairmen of the first U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation VALERIJ KORESHKOV (Валерий Корешков), an U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Pioneer, one of five Chairmen of the first U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation VYTAUTAS ZUMERIS, an U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Pioneer, famous art sculpturer LEONAS PIVORIUNAS, one of Chairmen of the famous U.S.S.R. „Vilnius Bodybuilding School“, poet and drama writer  VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ (Виталий Асовский) and the Chairmen of the famous U.S.S.R. „Vilnius Bodybuilding School“, talanted trainer CESLAV TAMULEVICH (Чеслав Тамулевич). A number of the Heads of the foreign delegations took part at the ceremony.

Speaking about the year of 2020 we would like to say special thaks to a number of Amateur and Professional Athletes who among World‘s best 10 000 athletes climbed up in the prestigeous „World Ranking List“: KUSHAL CHANGMAI, DHRUWA TAMULY, SHANKAY TANWAR (all from India), HANNA SKYTTA (Finland), MAROS KANASZ (Slovakia), MARINA VLASOVA, MICHAIL MALEK, ALEXANDER PULBERE, NIKOLAJ VOROBJOV, ALISA KLIMOVA (all from Russia), OKSANA KONDRATOVA (Vietnam), ALEKSEJ PETKEVICH (Latvia),  ROMAN POLSHIN (Estonia), DAINIUS DZIKEVICHUS, KARINA RADZIABOVA, AKVILE SHARKAITE, ALEKSANDRA KUKRESH SOROKINA, OLGA KOLESOVA, MARINA LEGENZOVA (all from Lithuania).

The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International works on the unique Project – the „World Body Building Encyclopedia“ («Энциклопедия всемирного культуризма»). According to the time represented it will be issued in four parts (four books). Working on the first part of the Encyclopedia we found that a number of well known bodybuilders declared their winnings of the famous contests but they were not in the lists of any bodybuilding organization which ever organized these competitions. We started scrutinizing the historical material deeper an deeper and finally we found the unpublished historical materials. The materials proved of the thirty years of unknown bodybuilding history which was hidden from us for some definite reasons. This changed all our Encyclopedia text written before and we had to start from the beginning again. We hope to present the first book of the „World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia“ at the beginning of the 2021.

As CORONA VIRUS is planned until May, 2021 the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.  will organize all main International competitions starting from June, 2021 till end of September, 2021. In most World Countries the new CORONA VIRUS will start in October, 2021. We have real Great Works to do for You and for the History of the World Bodybuilding.

No one other International Organization, that represents our sport, can not be proud of so long history of it’s International activities. No one of them has so many Country - Members. No one organizes so many official International events. No one of other organizations seek developing of our sport on official level, but the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.. They even do not try to do this. To say more – today all International Federations have chosen the commercial way of their development and nearly all of them  are private commercial profit companies today, not sport federations.

Representing World‘s Fitness and Bodybuilding Sport the W.F.F. - International and the W.B.B.F. - International are the only ones World Wide Officially Registered International Non Profit Sport Organizations that work well for our sport so long time. New ideas and tremendous work done for the International Sport make the W.F.F. and W.B.B.F. to be the today’s International Leaders in Bodybuilding and Fitness World Wide. We mean real sport and the Official Level. The W.F.F. and W.B.B.F. do not live yesterday’s life. We have lots of  new Global Bodybuilding Projects ahead.

HEALTH, SUCCESS, LUCK AND HAPPINESS IN 2021!!!

God bless all of us in our sincere pray!

EMPIRE OF I.F.B.B.

2020_ifbb_EN__1m.jpg

17/12/2020

35 YEARS WEIDER BROTHERS DEVELOPED I.F.B.B..

SANTONJA RUINED I.F.B.B. IN 3 YEARS.

Starting from 1971 World‘s Official Bodybuilding Sport was guided by the I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders).

In 1998 the I.O.C. (International Olympic Committee) officially refused to support the I.F.B.B.. In 2006 I.F.B.B. owners  WEIDER brothers already sold all their magazines, contests and after a number of intrigues the I.F.B.B. federation was led by Spanish RAFAEL SANTONJA. In three years in the I.F.B.B. federation appeared many doping scandals, illegal financial deals and a number of I.F.B.B. bodybuilders died. This information was presented in public by the I.F.B.B. lawer ALEX BAUER (Austria) and the I.F.B.B. Vice President PAUL CHUA (Singapore). Official bodybuilding sport was in a huge problem. Under the leadership of RAFAEL SANTONJA the I.F.B.B. in scandals split two times. Official sport is dead.

Whai will be next?

PRESENT YOURSELF YOUR OWN OLD CAR

2020_auto_EN_1m.jpg

15/12/2020

SOMETIMES CONTESTS HAVE INTERESTING DETAILS.

MOTORCYCLES AND CARS FOR OVER ALL WINNERS.

W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  organized several Asia Championships in India. International Vice President Professor LALIT KUMAR SONI presented motorcycles for the Champions. Once the Champion tried to refuse to take the motorcycle bacause there was no helmet for it. People started laughing and he changed his mind.

CARS OF THE CZECH I.F.B.B.

In 1996 the Czech I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders)  organized International Contests in the cities of Prague and Brno. The President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  as a V.I.P. Guest by the organizers was invited to this contest. There was a new car to be presented to the Over All Winner. The fight among the participating bodybuilders was between the 1996 I.F.B.B. Over All World Junior Champion from Germany and the local Czech bodybuilder. Though the German heavyweight athlete was better, the Czech judges announced the winner is the local one. Trainer of the National Team Germany was in panic about this. Then DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  insisted to make one more judging and comparisions of those two athletes. Again the judges proclaimed the winner the local bodybuilder. Their argument was: „anyway the German bodybuilder can not pass the country border with this car (Republic of Czech was not a E.U. member then) and they presented one more argument: „it is our contest, it is our car and we give it to whom we want“...

LIES FOR THE ATHLETES. CARS FOR THE WINNERS IN LITHUANIA.

Some years ago a Kaunas city bodybuilding organizer announced that the Over All Winner of his contest will receive a car as a prize. Nice! Many famous athletes were interested to compete then. After the contest everybody learned, that the car was not a new one. To say more – the owner of this car was the contest organizer himself! To say even more – the “judges decided”, that the best athlete was the contest organizer himself as he participated at this competition too.  So his own car came back as a prize for him.

CARPETS FOR THE WINNERS.

In 1991 the I.F.B.B. International Contest “Mr. Ural” was organized in Russia Ufa City by ALTAF GALEJEV. The organizers announced that the prize for the Over All Winner will be a new hand made carpet. At this contest participated a number of Socialist countries, Holland and Germany with USA as well. Germans brought a good team with a famous I.F.B.B. bodybuilder AUREL HILLEBRAND. Again, the winner became a local bodybuilder. Trainer of the National Team Germany was in panic saying: “We do not need the carpet, we want fair judging. What I will say in Germany about this?”. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS insisted on another judging and one more comparisons of both athletes. Finally the winner was proclaimed AUREL HILLEBRAND and the local athlete had to give the carpet back…

LEARN WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

WORLD BODYBUILDING HEROES. CESLAV TAMULEVICH.

Today we can not speak about bodybuilding in the Socialist Countries not mentioning CESLAV TAMULEVICH. For twenty years his personal influence to bodybuilding was evident.

CESLAV TAMULEVICH was one of bodybuilding pioneers in the Socialist World. He was a talanted trainer who training other athletes before giving them suggestions  did many experiments on himself.  Also he participated himself at nearly all first U.S.S.R. bodybuilding competitions. CESLAV TAMULEVICH was the founder and the Chairman of the famous „Vilnius Bodybuilding School“ (1965-1995) which was for many years the U.S.S.R. bodybuilding leader. The school gave direct and real way to develop bodybuilding in the U.S.S.R.. In 1974 at the U.S.S.R. Contest „Georg Tenno Memorial“ („Georgo Tenno Memorialas“, «Мемориал Георга Тенно») representatives of the „Vilnius Bodybuilding School“ took all first places. The contest was organized by the „Soul of Estonia Bodybuilding“ INNAR MARDO (Иннар Мардо). At tah competition only Estonian OLEV ANNUS won this hight category against Russian VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин). Then the Over All Champion became a student of CESLAV TAMULEVICH PRANAS MURAUSKAS (Пранас Мураускас). CESLAV TAMULEVICH trained many famous U.S.S.R. bodybuilders and most of them participated at the historical „Amber Prix International“ (1968-2020) „Gintarinis prizas“, „Янтарный приз») bodybuilding contest.

In 2017 the International Sport Society celebrated the 120-th anniversary of the first bodybuilding contest ever (held in 1898 in England and Russia). Also in 1898 in England the first Bodybuilding „Health and Strenght“  Magazine has been started to issue and it is issued until now by ROY EDWARDS (UK).

In 2017 the International Sport Society celebrated the 90-th anniversary of female  fitness sport.

WORLD  BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA.

Crowning it‘s 50 years of  International Bodybuilding activities, the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  works on the unique Global Bodybuilding Project -  the  „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“ («Энциклопедия мирового культуризма», “Pasaulio kultūrizmo enciklopedija”).  The Encyclopedia Project works are led by the President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. The first part of the Encyclopedia is nearly ready to print.

Until now nobody even tried to work on such a huge International Project. To be frank, only few people can do it. There were attempts to name some works „Encyclopedia“ too, but that were not Encyclopedias of Bodybuilding Sport in real (for example, as Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s „Encyclopedia“ which he has written about himself  in person mostly). Every Encyclopedia covers much wider basic things.

Our  „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“  is based on the fivety years collected Archives of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International, the Archivic Documents were presented to us by the Owner and the President of W.A.B.B.A. (World Amateur Body Building Association)   SERGE NUBRET (France),  the Heads of the UK Public Club N.A.B.B.A. (National Amateur Body Building Association) OSCAR HEIDENSTAM (England) and IVAN DUNBAR (Ireland), the Owners and Heads of the I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders)  Commercial Company  BEN WEIDER (Canada), PAUL CHUA (Singapore), ALEX BAUER (Austria) and  JOSE PARDO HIDALGO (Spain).

Starting with EUGENE SANDOW our  „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“  covers the period of over 130 years time. It presents over 10 000 known International Bodybuilding  Sport personalities who were very important for the World Bodybuilding Sport during the last Century. Important - all these 10 000 Bodybuilding Persons are representing all historically known traditional International Bodybuilding Federations.

Our „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“  will be published in various popular languages.

OLEV ANNUS

WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA.

OLEV ANNUS – WHAT IS IT?

Some time ago sport writer BAZAR KUSTANNUS wrote and issued a book about a well known former Estonia and Finland bodybuilder OLEV ANNUS. It is a pity we do not know this rear language and we can not read the original book… The short story about the book was published on the Lithuanian Site www.15min.lt. This story of OLEV ANNUS seems lacking many important details at least. We will present historical documents, facts and witnesses to make the story more close to reality.

Bodybuilder OLEV ANNUS grew in our eyes and we know very well how it was in real. There are many documents to prove this.

Since 2012 the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International (World Body Building Federation, World Fitness Federation)  works on the unique project – the “World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia” in various languages. In the second book we will publish detailed materials of the “Olev Annus” times. We will tell about the people who organized the first International Contest of OLEV ANNUS in Poland in 1979. We will tell about the people who organized that OLEV ANNUS lost his first place at the 1981 “Amber Prix International” in Klaipeda. People through the life of OLEV ANNUS can see the clear sport system in the Socialist World. That were the times when bodybuilding sport was prohibited and prosecuted in the Socialist Countries and the U.S.S.R..
