WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY

1989_10O_EN_1m.jpg

29/07/2020

HISTORY AFTER THIRTY YEARS.

1989 FIRST BODYBUILDING CONTEST „U.S.S.R. VERSUS U.S.A.“.

AMERICAN PIONEERS CAME TO U.S.S.R..

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

Ending the U.S.S.R. and breaking the „Iron Wall“ the socialist countries joined  the democratic World. In 1989 the first bodybuilding contest between U.S.S.R. and U.S.A. was organized in the U.S.S.R. city of Leningrad (Матчевая встреча «С.С.С.Р. – С.Ш.А.»). There were ten American athletes and twenty from the U.S.S.R. side. We will not speak about the competition itself as many participants of is did it many times. We will speak about the facts which remained unknown for thirty years.

That was the first time in the history when U.S.A. bodybuilders visited the U.S.S.R.. Both sides made great preparations for the event. Organizers, trainers, athletes worked a lot. Also worked and special secret services, like K.G.B.. Everybody expected that together with U.S.A. bodybuilders the owner and the President of the I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) BEN WEIDER will visit the U.S.S.R. too.

LOUIS ZWICK.

In 2002 President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS met his old friend American LOUIS ZWICK in German Stuttgart. At that time LOUIS ZWICK was a known organizer of International contests like “America Pageant”, “Fame”, “Hit the Rock” etc.. LOUIS ZWICK was not only organizer of these contests. He also was a producer of the television that was working at this event in Germany too. LOUIS ZWICK organized this competition as well as all other just to make a film of it and after to sell the reports to the American sport E.S.P.N. television.

INITIATOR OF THE 1989 BODYBUILDING CONTEST “U.S.S.R. VERSUS U.S.A.”.

In 2002 in Germany LOUIS ZWICK organized a very specific contest. He named it “European Championship”. He brought from America to Germany a number of athletes and all those athletes took first six places among top competitors. Participating German sportsmen were only like a decoration for Americans. Again the contest was filmed. The interviews of American athletes and some spectators were taken.

As DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS knew LOUIS ZWICK since 1989 first visit of the U.S.A. bodybuilders to the U.S.S.R. both have spoken on various topics. Among them was the historic 1989 contest “U.S.S.R. versus U.S.A.”. LOUIS ZWICK surprised saying he was the initiator from America side of this competition in1989. He was selecting every participant personally discussing the individual conditions of his participation in the U.S.S.R.. Finally he collected the necessary team of bodybuilders. LOUIS ZWICK was taking a big financial risk. Having no his personal money LOUIS ZWICK rented the necessary money from the bank to pay all costs of the event from the American athletes side. Nobody knew what will happen…

RUNAWAYS.

At that time for a number of years the best U.S.S.R. bodybuilder was VIKTORAS JUCYS from Klaipeda (Lithuania). It seemed he must participate against Americans in 1989 Leningrad competition.   But the plans of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS who was the trainer and sponsor of VIKTORAS JUCYS  were different. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was thinking of his personal meeting with BEN WEIDER  and their discussion of the future plans of common work.  Both DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and BEN WEIDR  were in close correspondence for long years and both were waiting for the moment of meeting.

At the backstage of the “U.S.S.R. – U.S.A.” contest in Leningrad was a group of U.S.A. television men. They were filming the event. Speaking with one of them (later we learned that he was LOUIS ZWICK) DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS told him  that the best U.S.S.R. bodybuilders ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS (Siauliai, Lithuania)  and VIKTORAS JUCYS are present at the event but they will not participate. LOUIS ZWICK was surprised about this and invited all three of us to shoot a film next day.

AMERICAN FILMS.

Next morning DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS took VIKTORAS JUCYS  and ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS down of the hotel to meet the LOUIS ZWICK  and his filming men. Americans explained that they are followed by people from secret services, like K.G.B. and they want all of us to run away from them. Only then the filming will be free of political pressure and represent reality. So we did. We jumped into a free minibus “Latvia” which was close to the hotel and left. We went to a primitive old bodybuilding gym in the suburbs of Leningrad City. Nobody was there but few local athletes. An interview of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was taken and training of VIKTORAS JUCYS  and ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS was filmed. LOUIS CWICK asked VIKTORAS JUCYS to end the filming with some words in English. Tought by DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS he said: “America – we will pump You up!”.

Later about the contest “U.S.S.R. versus U.S.A.”, about training of the best U.S.S.R. bodybuilders VIKTORAS JUCYS  and ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS, about the life in the USSR  LOUIS ZWICK made several films. Those films he successfully sold the  E.S.P.N. television in America and covered his expenses for the U.S.A. bodybuilding team. Later LOUIS ZWICK  sent those films to DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS (films are kept in the archives of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International).

TROJKA. INVITATION TO PARIS.

To meet BEN WEIDER DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS succeeded only after the contest “S.S.S.R. versus U.S.A.”. That was in restaurant “Trojka” where the organizers made a banquet for V.I.P. Persons. Both DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and BEN WEIDER  were sitting close together and had several hours to discuss the matters both of them planned to as both decided not to discuss this in their correspondence. Ending the discussion BEN WEIDER invited DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to be his personal guest at the coming World Championship in Paris (France). And this happened as decided.

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

Just before the meeting of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  and BEN WEIDER a meeting of the U.S.S.R. bodybuilding organizers had happened. It was in the hotel of Leningrad. At this meeting participated DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS, the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation General Secretary, ALEKSANDRAS NOVIKOVAS, RAMUTIS KAIRAITIS (Both Officials of the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation) and today‘s famous photo artist ALGIMANTAS ALEKSANDRAVICIUS and the best U.S.S.R. bodybuilder at that time VIKTORAS JUCYS. Learned about the coming meeting of the DSc. EDMUDAS DAUBARAS with BEN WEIDER, the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation General Secretary insisted that he is intending to come with him too. Then DSc.EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS refused as he did not wanted to have any problems with the U.S.S.R. secret services. DSC. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS inumerated  „bad deals“ of the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation General Secretary that were done in previous years. That were through the U.S.S.R. secret services (K.G.B.) ruined in 1979 International contest the ”U.S.S.R. versus Czechoslovakia” (documents are in the archives of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International), in 1988 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 ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS to participate at the Georg Tenno Memorial in Estonia and other intrigues of the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation General Secretary. Then the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation General Secretary started crying and knelt on the knees begging to forget those things.

2020. WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

WHY SO MUCH LIES AROUND?

Since 2012 the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) works on the „World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia“ which will cover the period of the last 130 years. Until now nobody even tried to do this. The Encyclopedia will be Published in four languages in the nearest future. In various languages we are studying historic materials. There we found unbelievable stories about the World‘s history of bodybuilding. Everywhere with some exceptions we found lies. It is possible to understand when new „leaders“ want to rise themselves by diminishing the previous ones. Often the new ones even do not mention the previous leaders at all.

America.

Today the history of bodybuilding presented in the USA and in the World at leats is not correct. This way in the USA are forgotten the real American historic heroes of our sport. But these forgotten heroes of the USA bodybuilding were accepted at the White House by three USA Presidents! Everybody reads only the unreal history of the commercial „WEIDER‘s Empire“. This is very bad... It is humoristic to see their materials when even the pictures of famous bodybuilders are developed so that anybody can not see the name and logo of other federation.

Europe.

Let us speak about the Europe.  Comparing with the N.A.B.B.A.  (National Amateur Body Building Association) nothing historically important happened in Europe. And again – N.A.B.B.A. after the death of their Leader OSCAR HEIDENSTAM last thirty years had no other real head of this level. It is the reason that today N.A.B.B.A. is not noticable and it is behind the other International organizations.

Another World.

This was a Picture of the „Western“ World. But there was another World, the „Socialist“ one. The Socialist World was nothing diferent of the „Western“ one. For seventy years both „Worlds“ were didvided by the „Iron Wall“ and lived separate life. Sport too. In the „Western“ World nobody could get the information about the Socialist bodybuilding. It was and it is of no interest for them. But if somebody did not hear about Australia – this does not mean that Australia is not egzisting. The situation in the history of bodybuilding of the Socialist World is the same. Today much false information is presented in public. We will not discuss here about the poor „poets“ who sing the unreal songs about the „WEIDER Empire“. Just to start – five members of the 1968 historic U.S.S.R. bodybuilding Council are forgotten. And it was the first International Bodybuilding Federation in the Socialis World. And it was even two years before the I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) International Federation was officially created at the International Congress in Belgrade (Jugoslavia). At the same time new „leaders“ are telling lies about their participation in the historic events, such as one from Tiumen and another from Sankt Peterburg (both Russian). But on April 22, 1988 by the special order for „unfair financial behaviour“ the U.S.S.R. Sport Ministry (Goskomsport) kicked away this Tiumen „leader“ from the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding federation. Again articles are written, books issued about these false leaders and their false stories.

We will do our best to refresh the memories and to cover all important historic matters.

2020. INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING SPORT.

WHAT WE ARE FACING TODAY?

MORE AND MORE NEW FEDERATIONS APPEAR. NOTHING CHANGES.

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. At the moment only WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International works on the official recognition of our sport and of the bettering the public opinion about the bodybuilding sport.

WHICH FEDERATION IS BETTER?

We mentioned above that today there are lots of “International Bodybuilding federations”. To get the truth about these “federations”  is not so difficult -  just ask then what are their strategic aims? What they seek? It is not so difficult to see that nearly all so called “federations” are only some ambitious plans of some definite individuals... nothing more!

No one of these “federations” ever influenced our sport on official level. No one of them ever tried to do this. They represent various unreal histories. The reason is clear – they have no history at all and this is the reason they create the false ones! Every day they are playing their games and fooling people around. People do not think that that these are not real sport federations in fact! Most “federations” are private companies. Among them many have no proper registration by law as International Organizations. No one of them is recognized officially by any serious organization. In 1998 the I.O.C. (International Olympic Committee) refused to recognize the IFBB and Weider brothers Joe and Ben sold the IFBB  (International Federation of Body Builders) federation, their sport magazines and the “Olympia” contest. After this the situation of bodybuilding is unstable in the World. Sport became extremely commercial and official sport competitions turned to various  “festivals”, “weekends”, “nights”  and “classics”.

It seems that the WFF-WBBF  International is the only one to go on working on the ideas of Weider brothers. At least we make efforts to do this. No one cares for official recognized sport, but WFF-WBBF.

We have spoken many times about such “federations” before, about the nonsense they are creating in our sport and we will leave them in peace now as there is nothing to say more. Sport specialists understand that those federations play no role in the official bodybuilding sport on International level (see the Global Bodybuilding Site www.wff.lt , read historical articles and see unique documents on the main page and in the forum).

When we seriously speak about the real official sport, today we can mention only two International Organizations and that are the IFBB and the WFF-WBBF.

IFBB.

Though today  there are many “hot” IFBB  questions, such as of law, of finance, of book-keeping, of false democracy and of doping.  The private IFBB of RAFAEL SANTONJA even after splitting remains one of the most serious International units of bodybuilding sport.

Note:

In 2009 – IFBB split for the parts of the Spanish RAFAEL SANTONJA and the Singapore  PAUL CHUA. IN 2017 – IFBB split again for the parts of RAFAEL SANTONJA  and the USA NPC (National Physique Committee) of JIM MANION. All mentioned parts are in confrontation one with another today. All parts want to be on top one over another. Seeing this the historic IFBB creators and our real respected friends BEN  and JOE WEIDER brothers could have a heart attack.

WFF-WBBF.

Created in 1968 and celebrating it’s 52-d year of activities the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) works for the official sport of bodybuilding. Today the WFF-WBBF unites national organizations from 134 countries that represent all continents. Every year the WFF-WBBF organizes over 60 International events in various countries.

The WFF-WBBF received recognition by the Non Olympic Sports Committee, by a number of National Olympic Committees, by a number of Governments and Sport Ministries, by the ISU International Sports University (from 2017 ISU is  an Associated  Member of the UNESCO at the UN). Even the Vatican noticed WFF-WBBF International. During the official visit to the Headquarters of Vatican the  Roman Pope Benedictus XI-th award was presented to the International President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS with the Honorable Medal (Medaglia Ufficiale di Pontificato di Sua Santita Benedetto XVI)  and the Pope sent His blessing after the official meeting in Vatican (2011).

It seems today that only the WFF-WBBF International has aims and ideas how to develop bodybuilding on official level. Facing the new ambitious Global projects the WFF-WBBF takes real steps to guide our sport World Wide.

2020. NEWS INTERNATIONAL.

MULTIPLE “MR.UNIVERSE” ALEKSANDER NEVSKY.

EXCLUSIVE: MR. UNIVERSE AND HOLLYWOOD STAR ALEXANDER NEVSKY SHARES "QUARANTINE WORKOUT" TIPS!

It's coronavirus times: all gyms are closed worldwide and many people don't have barbells and dumbbells at their homes. However it shouldn't stop anyone from regular training. Quarantine could be a good time to workout more often and improve your physic. You can workout with the weight of your own body and still make a good progress! 

If you are a beginner and struggling even with pull-ups, please do not get discouraged. Once, many years ago, I have had similar problems. Long before I started weight training I had gotten used to regular simple exercises. The following easy routine improved my body strength:

1) Wide Grip Push-Ups – Spread your hands 6-8 inches wider than your shoulders. Keep your head in line with your spine, looking up may strain your neck, bend your arms as far as comfortable and then press to the finish. Throughout the exercise keep your back straight; do not drop or raise your hips.

2) Reverse Dips – Stand with your back to a table, bench, couch, chair or other object behind you. Grab the edge of the bench with your hands. Your arms should be fully extended. Move your feet forward and plant your heels on the floor. Lower your body by bending your arms.

3) Crunches – Setting on a chair (your feet secured under a bed or any other sturdy object)

I worked out like that three times a day: before breakfast, lunch, and dinner – and did five sets of ten reps in each exercise. To sum up, I performed a hundred fifty push-ups every day. I had stuck to this plan for a while. And in several months my body was strong enough to do pull-ups, parallel bars dips and dumbbell exercises. You can check all my step-by-step training programs in the great book "3 MORE REPS! The Golden Age of Bodybuilding" by George Snyder and Rick Wayne which was republished last year. 

And if you're lucky and do have dumbbells in your house - below is the simple "weight training" routine (should be performed 3-4 times a week):

1. Floor Press, instead of bench, with dumbbells (for chest) 

2. Military Press with dumbbells (for shoulders)

3. Dumbbell Curl (stand) (for biceps) 

4. Dumbbell French Press (for triceps)

5. Dumbbell Rows, bent over (for back muscles) 

6. Dumbbell Squats (for thighs)

7. Leg rises (for abs)

8. Crunches (for abs)

In each exercise with dumbbells you should do 4 sets: 15, 12, 10, 8 reps (try to increase weight in every set). In abs exercises - 3 sets: 15-20 reps. Simple warm up exercises should be performed in the beginning of every workout. By the way, I trained kind of like that during the shooting of my film "Showdown in Manila" (kept my dumbbells even in Philippines jungle). 

Dont forget about cardio and try to walk every day for about 30 minutes (instead of gym's elliptical). Finally, the most important thing: stay positive and believe in yourself always!

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY. BRONE DUBAR

2020. LEARN REAL HISTORY OF WORLD BODYBUILDING.

BRONE DUBAR

BRONE DUBAR (Broné “Brownie” Dubar, Daubaraite, 1906-1986) together with her parents and four brothers emigrated from Lithuania to the US in 1912. Coming from a family of athletes and thinkers, she believed in the importance of an educated mind and a healthy body. Her brothers were all accomplished athletes, playing in amateur as well as in  professional areas of sport: Boxing, Hockey, Skating and Baseball.  Chess and books were always a steady diet in the DUBAR  household. BRONE DUBAR found swimming and diving to be a natural fit for her and participated in events during high school. Though there were no fitness sport and fitness contests at that time today sport specialists say that BRONE DUBAR was the first fitness athlete in the history. At a time when sport of fitness for women was not common and the first women's Olympics had only been sanctioned in 1920, she would compete or perform whenever she could. This was the reason that fitness performances of BRONE DUBAR were not accepted as sport at that time. By the 1920's BRONE DUBAR was touring and working as an acrobatic and gymnastic dancer. She also promoted women's health and fitness by traveling and putting on one woman and small athletic demonstrations. As a show woman, she considered the impacts of her demonstrations and how to grab the audience's attention, including adding stunts to her repertoire. Show programs of BRONE DUBAR were original. At one demonstration, hosted at a local YMCA, she jumped from a second story balcony above the crowd and dove headlong into a small lap pool as part of her demonstration. BRONE DUBAR incorporated fitness into her acts of performance and frequently headlined as an acrobatic and gymnastic dancer.  She often incorporated physical movement familiar to modern viewers as yoga and calisthenics along with examples of natural body strength movement.  BRONE’S DUBAR demonstration bookings took her to all corners of the US. From New York to Seattle and from Ohio to California and many places between.  Remember that all World bodybuilding pioneers did the same – they traveled in the countries to perform their power programs in public. Most World’s known bodybuilding pioneers did this. In America that were LOUIS CYR (1863-1912 m.) and CHARLES ATLAS (Angelo Siciliano, 1893-1972 m.). BRONE DUBAR primarily was involved in athletic demonstrations from a few years before the 1920's through the 1930's until the war changed the entertainment industry and doomed traveling shows to history. Today many local newspaper archives in the US from the time contain ads for her acts as well as her demonstrations as evidence of her activities.

A very classy woman, BRONE DUBAR learned to be a seamstress when she was young and always dressed immaculately as a result and would sew the latest fashions for herself. Even in advanced age, she looked like she just stepped off the pages of Vogue Magazine.

BRONE DUBAR was not only a woman before her time, but if her history is known and shared, should inspire young woman to seek and excel at athletics and fitness. She has inspired more than one generation in her own family to follow into the World of athletics on both sides of the Atlantic.

INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING

2020. WE ARE NOT INDIFFERENT TO REQUESTS.

HIGHEST INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING ADVISORY COUNCIL.

53 years working WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International is directly connected with the „Amber Prix International“ («Янтарный приз», „Gintarinia prizas“, 1968-2020) contest. „Amber Prix International“ is one of the World‘s oldest traditional historic competition still organized in Lithuania. The value of the „Amber Prix International“ was alvays evident and always many known sport organizers of various Countries use to be present there.

It happened so that through all history of the WFF-WBBF good relations of the International WFF-WBBF President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and the historic leaders  of the all main traditional International Bodybuilding organizations were in the background. And that were the Owner and the President of International IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) BEN WEIDER, the President of NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Association) OSCAR HEIDENSTAM, the President of WABBA (World Amateur Body Building Association) International SERGE NUBRET.

There were momonts in the history of the World Bodybuilding when the International leaders connected DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS for friendly assistance.

In 1970 at the IFBB Belgrade (Yugoslavia) International Conmgress SERGE NUBRET was appointed to the position of the IFBB Vice President. In 1976 SERGE NUBRET set another International organization of WABBA as he explains „to fight with the IFBB“. Then the conflict between BEN WEIDER  and SERGE NUBRET reached the highest point in the Court then in 1985 SERGE NUBRET  sent to DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS twenty pages of the confident IFBB documents asking to support him. That was very personal information about BEN WEIDER  and we never published this anywhere.

The IFBB International and the IFBB USSR (established in 1987) as well always were suffering of inside intriques and conflicts. First let us remember the famous weightlifting Olympic Champion JURIJ VLASOV (Юрий Власов)  and how badly he was treated when he was elected to the position of the President of the USSR Bodybuilding Federation. In 1991 President of the USSR Bodybuilding Federation VASILIJ CHAIKOVSKI (Василий Чайковский) was removed from his position by VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин). Feeling frustrated of this unfair action VASILIJ CHAIKOVSKIJ immediatelly came to Lithuania. He was looking for support of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS in his relations with BEN WEIDER.

Fifteen years ago understanding that International Bodybuilding Sport is in awful situation WEIDER brothers JOE and BEN sold their magazines and „Olympia“  Contest and got rid of the IFBB. After this WAYNE DE MILIA was dismissed from the position of the Director of the IFBB Professional League. Until that he run this position for many years. Then in 2006 WAYNE DE MILIA established his own organization „Pro Division Inc.“ and addressed DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to support him. From that time we have heard nothing about „Pro Division Inc.“.

Fighting in between in 2009  and in 2015 IFBB split two times. First IFBB was divided between Assistant of BEN WEIDER Spanish RAFAEL SANTONJA  and the IFBB Vice President PAUL CHUA from Singapore. At taht moment PAUL CHUA was supported only by Asia and Arab Countries. Then PAUL CHUA  and Sheikh of UAE AL SHAFAR came to London (UK) to fight with RAFAEL SANTONJA in the Court. PAUL CHUA  addressed DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to support him, but DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS could not come to London as there was European Championship in Lithuania at that time. Also PAUL CHUA and Sheikh AL SHAFAR could not come to Lithuania as they had no EU visas. The deal was closed. Some time leter PAUL CHUA and the IFBB Lower ALEX BAUER (Austria) sent 600 pages of IFBB juridical and financial documents and asked to publish them. We did it as they asked.

Some years ago Australian GRAEME LANCEFIELD established his WFF federation. He started collecting NABBA athletes to his own contests using the NABBA name. NABBA leaders were angry about this. Then in 2018 the President of the NABBA USA and a famous IFBB professional bodybuilder EDDIE ROBINSON  adressed DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to support NABBA in fighting against unfair behaviour of GRAEME LANCEFIELD. After this GRAEME LANCEFIELD continued acting against NABBA. At the beginning of 2020 the President NABBA International and a famus UK Professional bodybuilder ED ELWOOD asked DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to support NABBA against GRAEME LANCEFIELD again. To help NABBA we wrote and published a thorough article about this.

Diferent of other International Bodybuilding Organizations today WFF-WBBF seeks huge aims to make bodybuilding recognized and respected. Our sport besame so much commercial that today we are the only ones to fulfill the old dreams of BEN WEIDER.

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY

2020. WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

IFBB AND NABBA SEVENTY YEARS AGO.

Nothing is better than the historic letter of JULIAN BLOMMAERT to BEN WEIDER speaking about the International bodybuilding of the end of seventies and of the beginning of eighties of the last century. On October 1, 1971 the IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) Europe Chairman JULIAN BLOMMAERT (Belgium) wrote a letter to the owner and the „Life President“ of the IFBB BEN WEIDER.

Note: in 1985 the above mentioned letter as well as other numerous historic and juridical documents were sent by SERGE NUBRET to the contemporary International President WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. World bodybuilding legend SERGE NUBRET was appointed to the position of the IFBB Vice President at the 1970 Belgrade Congress in Jugoslavia. In 1976 SERGE NUBRET set the WABBA (World Amateur Body Building Association). SERGE NUBRET thought it will be safe to send the documents to  DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS who may use them to make the situation in bodybuilding more open to public. The documents are kept in the archieves of the International WFF-WBBF federation.

In the letter of JULIAN BLOMMAERT the situation in IFBB and NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Association) is spoken over. At that time in the „Western“ World  IFBB and NABBA were the two basic International bodybuilding organizations. In 1968 in the Socialist World the first International Bodybuilding organization was set and that was the „USSR Bodybuilding Committee“. Also in 1968 the historic „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, «Янтарный приз») bodybuilding contest started.

JULIAN BLOMMAERT writes in his letter about the 12-th IFBB „Mr.Universe“ (1971). Then the winners were GIUSEPPE DEIANA (Belgium), brother of JULIAN BLOMAERT KARL BLOMAERT and ALBERT BECKLES (UK). He feels sad about the fact that NABBA man ALBERT BECKLES won the over all title. JULIAN BLOMMAERT  writes that the IFBB „Mr. UNiverse“ was terrible that time and the level of competitors was very bad. After the contest there was a fight and a number of people were taken to hospital.

Also JULIAN BLOMMAERT speaks about bad judging. He accuses representatives of Communist Countries, Arab and Orinent Countries who organized their block at the 1970 IFBB Belgrade Congress. He writes that all of them are only dressed like people but in fact they are not civilized.

In the same letter JULIAN BLOMMAERT comments the 1971 NABBA „Mr. Universe“ competition. He thinks that the NABBA position is bright. World‘s best elite bodybuilders are with NABBA: CHRIS DICKERSON, SERGIO OLIVA, BILL PEARL, FRANK ZANE, KEN WALLER, REG PARK etc..

JULIAN BLOMMAERT accused BEN WEIDER of taking important decissions alone. He thinks it is bad for IFBB reputation. He asks BEN WEIDER to awake otherwise everybody will run away from IFBB and only he and JULIAN BLOMMAERT will remain.

2020. WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

WHY SO MUCH LIES AROUND?

Since 2012 the WFF-WBBF International (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) works on the „World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia“ which will cover the period of the last 130 years. Also at the moment we work on the book about the bodybuilding in the Socialist World. In various languages we are studying historic materials. There we found unbelievable stories about the history of bodybuilding. Everywhere with some exceptions we found lies. It is possible to understand when new „leaders“ want to rise themselves by diminishing the previous ones. Often the new ones even do not mention the previous leaders at all.

America. This way in the USA are forgotten the real American historic heroes of our sport. But these forgotten heroes of the USA bodybuilding were accepted at the White House by three USA Presidents! Everybody reads only the unreal history of the commercial „WEIDER‘s Empire“.

Europe. Let us speak about the Europe.  Comparing with the NABBA  (National Amateur Body Building Association) nothing historically important happened. And again –NABBA after the death of their Leader OSCAR HEIDENSTAM last thirty years had no other real head of this level.

Another World. This was a Picture of the „Western“ world. But there was another world, the „Socialist“ one. For seventy years both „worlds“ were didvided by the „Iron Wall“ and lived separate life. The situation in the history of bodybuilding of the Socialist world is the same. We will not discuss here about the poor „poets“ who sing the unreal songs about the „WEIDER Empire“. Just to start - members of the 1968 historic USSR bodybuilding Council are forgotten. At the same time new „leaders“ are telling lies about their participation in the historic events, such as one from Tiumen and another from Sankt Peterburg (both Russian). Again articles are written, books issued about these false leaders and their false stories.

We will do our best to refresh the memories and to cover all important historic matters.
