1990. WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

 „SPORT REVUE“ PERSONS OF THE MONTH.

Some time ago our friend from Yemen Dr. NEJEEB AL-JAWFI sent us historic material. That was the article „Persons of the Month“ from the German bodybuilding magazine „Sport revue“.

„This month we underline two V.I.P. bodybuilding persons. That are DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS from the Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic. They were Lithuanian delegates at the 1989 I.F.B.B. World Championship in Paris (France). Due to efforts of the both mentioned persons bodybuilding in Lithuania became very popular“.

The picture of the German photographer ALBERT BUSEK with BEN WEIDER was made during the 1989 I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) World Championship banquet in Paris. In Paris DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was a personal guest of the I.F.B.B. President BEN WEIDER.

WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA.

CONTEMPORARY FEDERATIONS. WHAT IS IT?

Lots of bodybuilding federations today fool athletes and international sport society. It seems that athletes do not think at all. We will try to explain the essence and make clever people start thinking.

Try to get the answers:

- What is bodybuilding sport today?

- Why there are so many federations?

- What is an International federation?

- What are strategic aims of any federation?

I.F.B.B. COMMERCIAL COMPANY AND FEDERATION.

We will publish materials about all World‘s traditional bodybuilding federations in the „World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia“ («Энциклопедия всемирного культуризма»). Today the closest to official sport is I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) federation and we will start with the I.F.B.B.. Before we have published in various languages much information about the I.F.B.B. in our magazines and at the International Site www.wff.lt . Due to huge amount of information we will publishe only basic facts about the I.F.B.B. now. Even this shortened publication will appear in parts as still there is too much materials. Contemporary sources of Internat information allow publicity of short articles only.

I.F.B.B. COMMERCIAL COMPANY.

In 1946 the commercial I.F.B.B. company was established in Canada by BEN WEIDER and his two friends. No one could touch the official bodybuilding sport when since 1947 until 1969 I.O.C. (International Olympic Committee) member F.I.H.C. (Federation Internationale Halterophile et Culturiste) federation rulled World‘s bodybuilding.  I.F.B.B. commercial company of BEN WEIDER, W.B.B.G. (World Body Building Guild) commercial company of DAN LURIE, British public club N.A.B.B.A. (National Amateur Body Building Association) were totally out of the game. Their activities had no influence for official bodybuilding sport. Commercial companies of I.F.B.B. and W.B.B.G. invented nothing new. Both of them copied everything what BOB HOFFMAN (Robert Collins Hoffman, 1898 - 1985) did – organized competitions, issued magazines, used to sell supplements.

The article will be continued. We will speak about all World‘s traditional federations. It will be the truth which not everybody like. More information in various languages is on Global Site www.wff.lt

INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING FEDERATIONS.

HOFFMAN_2m.jpg

28/06/2024

2024. CONTEMPORARY FEDERATIONS. WHAT IS IT?

BACKGROUND.

Today‘s bodybuilding chaos means that only few understand what is going on. Now we have about fourty bodybuilding federations which call themselves as „International“. Not a single one of those federations aim to develop bodybuilding as sport. Even I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) of RAFAEL SANTONJA too. The aims of those federations are only hardly understandable ambitions and... money. It is not connected with sport and it means that bodybuilders and sport society are fooled by them.

Let us look on the International federations through the history of sport. We will begin with the A.A.U. (Amateur Athletes Union) which was established in 1888 in the US. As there was no Ministry of Sport the A.A.U. was functioning instead. A.A.U. was a member of the Olympic Committee of the USA which was a member of the I.O.C. (International Olympic Committee). Since 1947 until 1969 World‘s official bodybuilding sport was rulled by the F.I.H.C. (Federation Internationale Halterophile et Culturiste). And F.I.H.C. was a member of the I.O.C..

Then we will speak about the commercial company and the federation iof the I.F.B.B.. After we will speak about the public Club N.A.B.B.A. (National Amateur Body Building Association). At the end we will cover ionformation about W.A.B.B.A. (World Amateur Body Building Association) which was always some missunderstanding in the World‘s sport.

What we mentioned above were representatives of the „Western World“. In the „Eastern World“ first official International Bodybuilding Organization started in 1963 in the U.S.S.R.. It happened under the influence of American BOB HOFFMAN (Robert Collins Hoffman, 1898 - 1985 m.) and the F.I.H.C.. The organization was a part of the „U.S.S.R. Weightlifting Federation“ («Федерация тяжёлой атлетики С.С.С.Р.») which was a member of the F.I.H.C.. The Organiozation was not active and in 1968 in Lithuania was set another U.S.S.R. International Bodybuilding Federation (Comission). Since that time through the famous „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, 1968 - 2024) Contest federation is live today under the name of W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation). The road was long and hard. It included twenty years of bodybuilding prohibition and prosecution.

The article will be continued. We will speak about all World‘s traditional federations. It will be the truth which not everybody like. More information in various languages is on Global Site www.wff.lt

WFF-WBBF IN ARAB COUNTRIES

2024_lebanon_2m.jpg

25/06/2024

2024. W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. DOORS ARE OPEN FOR ALL COUNTRIES.

MORE ORDER IN WORLD‘S BODYBUILDING MESS.

Today W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) unites members of 140 Countries that represent all Continents. Covid pandemija and war in Ukraine stopped many our huge International projects. Anyway the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. is optimistic about the future.

Ten years ago after the second I.F.B.B. split in 2008 Vice President I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) PAUL CHUA (Singapore) addressed the International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to join the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. activities. After PAUL CHUA about 40 Asia and Africa Countries left the I.F.B.B.. Then I.F.B.B. lawer and financist ALEX BAUER (Austria) stopped his intentions.

ARAB PHYSICAL CULTURE FEDERATION.

Intending to join the International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. activities some time ago the Chairman of the Arab Physical Culture Federation (A.P.C.F.) Dr. Professor FAWZI KHODARI addressed the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International. The Arab Physical Culture Federation is based in Beirut (Lebanon) and for many years was working with the I.F.B.B..

WEIDER BROTHER‘S FRIEND FROM YEMEN.

Today a former friend of JOE AND BEN WEIDER BROTHERS from Yemen Dr. NAJEEB AL JAWFI addressed the International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. Both of them underlined that after deaths of WEIDER BROTHERS World Bodybuilding went down. It is finished today as sport. Numerous „federations“ (including contemporary I.F.B.B. of Rafael Santonja) have only one aim – the money. For them official sport dissapeared for all times. Our friend from Yemen supports the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. ideas to get bodybuilding recognition back. The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. seeks to work on the dreams of WEIDER BROTHERS including membership in the I.O.C. (International Olympic Committee). Today only W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. is not cheating athletes and makes no festivals and looks on bodybuilding through eyes of official sport.
