WORLD BODYBUILDING WAS LED BY WEIGHTLIFTING FEDERATION.

THEY WERE THE FIRST.

Under the efforts of the American „Father of Weightlifting“ BOB HOFFMAN bodybuilding was brought to the Socialist Countries by the World Weightlifting Federation (F.I.H.C.). This happened in 1959 when F.I.H.C. organized the World Weightlifting Championship in the capital of the Polish Democratic Republic Warszawa. In 1947 F.I.H.C. decided to lead the World Bodybuilding Sport and since that time organized World Weightlifting Championships together with the bodybuilding „Universe“ contest. In 1959 this happened in Poland too.

Under the pressure of the F.I.H.C. and under the tradition the U.S.S.R. Sport Ministry (Goskomsport) set the Bodybuilding Organization that was ruled by the U.S.S.R. Weightlifting Federation. Then this organization was not successful as there were no bodybuilders in the U.S.S.R. at that time.

THEY WERE THE FIRST IN RUSSIA.

First bodybuilders in the U.S.S.R. were weightlifters: ROMAN MOROZ (Роман Мороз), GENNADIJ BALDIN (Геннадий Балдин), the first U.S.S.R. World Weightlifting Champion GRIGORIJ NOVAK (Григорий Новак, 1946), GEROG TENNO (Георг Тенно), IGOR PETRUCHIN (Игорь Петрухин) and MARK SHAFRAN (Марк Шафран). The first Bodybuilding contest was organized in Moscow (Russia). Right after this the International Contest was organized in Vilnius (Lithuania). This was the first International Contest in the all Socialist Countries. Most of the above mentioned persons took part at the contest in Vilnius.
