WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

1991 “MR. URAL”.

BODYBUILDING TIMES OF CARPETS.

Before it started.

Time goes so fast and today in public often comes information which is far away from the truth. People who were not present at certain events are writing articles and books which are based on rumours. They pay no attention to the facts and opinion of the real participants of these events. For example, several years ago in Lithuania was issued a book “Lithuanian bodybuilding history” which carries facts that are not correct. Some time ago in Russia was issued a book about a famous Russia bodybuilder VLADIMIR DUBININ. For thirty  years VLADIMIR DUBININ  was the President of the National I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders)  Federation of  Russia. There are many not correct facts and interpretations on the history of the U.S.S.R. bodybuilding in the book.

Today after thirty years in internet appeared false information about the 1991 International “Mr. Ural” contest. The information is published by a former Russian bodybuilder OLEG ANDREJEV (Олег Андреев). People start discussing the angry letter of an U.S.S.R. official which he wrote on the background of rumours only.

Continuing our work on the unique International project of the “World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia” («Энциклопедия мирового культуризма», „Pasaulio kultūrizmo enciklopedija“)  in 2020 we plan to issue in various languages a book about the history of bodybuilding in the U.S.S.R.. There will be many historical documents, authentic stories and pictures and the reader will have a chance to see the historic happenings on different angle.

1991 “Mr. Ural” Contest

The organizer of the 1990-1991 “Mr. Ural” Contest in Ural Ufa City was ALTAF GALEJEV. For a number of years ALTAF GALEJEV  used to come with Ufa bodybuilding team to the  officially recognized World’s oldest traditional bodybuilding contest “Amber Prix International” (1968-2022, “Gintarinis prizas”, «Янтарный приз»). Participating at the 1991 “Mr. Ural” Contest contemporary President of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  and his wife were the invited personal guests of the organizer ALTAF GALEJEV.

Judges of the 1991 “Mr. Ural”.

Though at the 1991 “Mr. Ural” together with the U.S.S.R. bodybuilders participated teams of Germany, Holland and U.S.A. – the judges were only of the U.S.S.R. side. These judges in years were known one to another. To say more – these judges were trainers of the sportsmen, who participated at the 1991 “Mr. Ural” Contest and their personal interest in the competition results was very plain and clear. Even more: Lithuanian Judge ARVYDAS MILVYDAS some time before started working as the director of Vilnius sport centre. He had possibilities to offer money to bodybuilders. So he did. ARVYDAS MILVYDAS offered money to a number of known bodybuilders who were for many years trained by a famous U.S.S.R. trainer VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ. The bodybuilders of VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ without any hesitation left him and run to ARVYDAS MILVYDAS. Today when sport became totally commercial  it is nothing special about this, many athletes use to do this. But in the U.S.S.R. of 1991 it was a single unfair happening on the moral side. Having no trainer’s experience before it ARVYDAS MILVYDAS appeared at “Mr. Ural” Competition in Ufa with his team of known bodybuilders.

Judging

After the calculation of the 1991 “Mr. Ural” Contest results the awards ceremony started. Among the usual traditional awards for the winners were the carpets. To understand the situation now we should explain the situation of life in the U.S.S.R.. It is impossible to understand it easy for the contemporary people. Due to political situation for many years cars, carpets, spare parts for cars etc. were impossible to get in the U.S.S.R.. Only the trade unions of the U.S.S.R. were giving special licences for the best workers to buy these things. For German, Holland and U.S.A. participants of the 1991 “Mr. Ural” these carpets were of no value. But the representatives of the U.S.S.R. looked upon this differently. For them the carpets were of great value.  A scandal started during the award ceremony. German, Holland and the U.S.A. representatives did not agree with the judging and they insisted to cancel the judging results.

It was a break at the contest announced. Then the contest organizer ALTAF GALEJEV  collected official representatives of Germany, Holland and U.S.A. for a special meeting. The only one at the competition knowing well the English and the German languages DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was present at the meeting too. The German team was led to Ufa by a famous National trainer of the German team. The team consisted of famous International athletes and among them AUREL HILLEBRAND – one of the winners of the 1991 Europe Championship. At the meeting the representatives spoke that “they came to a bodybuilding contest and not to the place of dividing carpets. Why ALTAF GALEJEV invited them to UFA if there is only the manipulation with carpets?” After the  discussion all of the representatives decided to change the results only in one category. They replaced Lithuanian OLEG ZUR with AUREL HILLEBRAND giving the first place to the German bodybuilder. Also OLEG ZUR had to give back to the German the carpets... AUREL HILLEBRAND  did not want to take the carpets saying he came to the bodybuilding competition and he does not need them. We would like to remind that later in 2004 Lithuanian OLEG ZUR was the over all I.F.B.B. World Champion in Moscow. By the way the 2004 I.F.B.B. World Championship was also full of intrigues. Any can find in various languages the historic documents, articles at the International Page www.wff.lt , read information on the main page and in the forum topics.

Scandal of carpets goes on.

Returned from 1991 “Mr. Ural” home the Lithuania bodybuilders were upset.  They told their story to the Secretary of the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS. Hearing only one side and based only on words and rumours ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS wrote an angry letter to the President of the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation VLADIMIR DUBININ. Then a special Congress of the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation Council was announced. The Congress put punishment to the 1991 “Mr. Ural” organizer  ALTAF GALEJEV. Then ALTAF GALEJEV left the I.F.B.B. and started working with another International Federation.

CESLAV TAMULEVICH

LEARN WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

THE ONLY ONE CLASSIC BODYBUILDING SCHOOL IN ALL SOCIALIST COUNTRIES.

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..

When we speak about any classic bodybuilding school in any of the Socialist Countries we mean that „Vilnius Bodybuilding School“ was the only one of that kind. We may try to mention the „Sandow“ bodybuilding school in Chechoslovakian Marianske Lazne led by LUDEK NOSEK until now. But this shool had no great international level bodybuilders except ALOIS PEK.

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 that competition only Estonian OLEV ANNUS won this hight category against Russian monster VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин). Then the Over All Champion became a student of CESLAV TAMULEVICH legendary PRANAS MURAUSKAS (Пранас Мураускас). World bodybuilding magazines wrote about this many times, including themagazines of the Weider brothers.

 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.

INTERNATIONAL AWARD REACHED IT‘S HEROE.

On September 28, 2020 at the Headquarters of the Parliament Republic Lithuania for the social work done CESLAV TAMULEVICH was announced about the Great International Award. Right after it the delegates of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International Federation (World Fitness federation, World Body Building Federation) left the Parliament to present CESLAV TAMULEVICH the International Honour Silver Medal. For many years on CESLAV TAMULEVICH  lives and is under the doctor‘s care in a small city hospital.

BODYBUILDING MAGAZINES

2022. NO OTHER INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING FEDERATION HAS IT‘S OWN MAGAZINE, BUT W.F.F. – W.B.B.F..

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

Today  the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  International unites 140 Country – Members and organizes every year nearly 60 anual Am and Pro International Events World Wide. Looking from the juridic point of view the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International is no doubt the Real World Bodybuilding Leader.

W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International started issuing the International Magazines in various languages in 1989. The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Magazines are spread free of charge during the most important International Sport Events World Wide and also in all Country-Members of the Federation. The Magazines can be found in many basic State Libraries. Once the German Leizig State Library addressed the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International asking the Federation Magazines for the readers.

We would like to underline that no other known International Bodybuilding Sport Organization has it‘s own International Magazine, but the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F..

Not long ago the Sport Ministry Lithuania informed the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International that the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Magazines will be  Representing sport of Republic Lithuania Internationally.

ARNOLD SCWARZENEGGER RECOMMENDS

The first W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International Magazine (1989) was the famous methodical issue „Arnold Scwarzenegger Recommends“ („Арнольд Шварценеггер рекомендует»). At that time many East Europe Bodybuilders were short of the methodical knowlidge and that was the reason of the 2 000 000 sucessfull issues of the magazine. The „Arnold Scwarzenegger Recommends“ bacame the real „Cathekizmus“ for most bodybuilders of that time. It was spread in the countries of former U.S.S.R. and East Europe. Several generations of today‘s bodybuilders grew up under these magazines.

WORKING PUBLISHING GROUP

The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. working publishing group is led by the Member International Journalist Association the International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. President DSc EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. For the period of the last 30 years the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International published 37 International Magazines under various names in various languages.

GERMAN LEIPZIG STATE LIBRARY.

Our magazines You can find easy at any State Library of Lithuania. Several years ago German State Leipzig Library addressed the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International asking to send them our magazines. So we did then.

WORLD BODYBUILDING  ENCYCLOPEDIA

Crowning it‘s 50 years of  International Bodybuilding activities, the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.  works on the Unique Global International Bodybuilding Project -  the „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“ («Энциклопедия всемирного культуризма»). 

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 previous works as „Encyclopedia“ too, but that were not Encyclopedias of Bodybuilding Sport in real (for example, as Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s „Encyclopedia“ was written about himself in person mostly). In real every Encyclopedia covers much wider things.

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

SOCIALIST COUNTRIES BODYBUILDING LITERATURE.

Before the prohibition of bodybuilding in the middle of the sixties of the last century in all Socialist World Countries  the only one regular magazine about bodybuilding sport was Polish „Sport Dla Wszystkich“. At that time Lithuanians presented the basics of bodybuilding in the magazine „The Student“(„Moksleivis“).

Through the time of the prohibition of bodybuilding sport in the Socialist Countries nobody even dreamed about the bodybuilding literature. The exception was in Czechoslovakia Bratislava issued  „Trener“ Magazine and the German D.D.R. (Deutsches Demokratik Republik)  Weight Lifting Magazine „The Weightlifter‘s Training“ ( „Schwer Atlet Training“) which started to publish some information about our sport. During this time DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  used to give articles and contest information for these Magazines. Also for BEN WEIDER‘S „Flex“ magazine. All magazines used to publishe the DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS given materials. First of all it was information from the World‘s Oldest Traditional Bodybuilding Contest, the only one anual International Bodybuilding Event in all Socialist Counties, the „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, „Янтарный приз», 1968-2022). The above mentioned Czechoslovakia „Trener“ Magazines were published by JOZEF MAZAK and later by MILAN PERDOCH.

International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. worked and still works on the documents and various materials of World‘s Bodybuilding History. The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ Magazine started in English, Russian and Lithuanian languages in 1989. During this period of time the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. printed and spread through the World several millions copies of the Magazine. „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ is awailable at the National W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. federations in all 140 Country - members of the W.F.F. - W.B.B.F. International as well as at the most important World‘s International Bodybuilding and Fitness Events.
Main articles of the „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ Magazine were published in various Internet Pages, sport and public media, among them regularly in Spanish „Fitness Alive“ (Argentina, Magazine for South America and Spain), in German „Fitness News“ (Austria, Magazine for Germany, Austria and Switzerland), in English „Strenght and Health“ (UK, Magazine for England, Scotland and Ireland), in Russian „Zeleznyj Mir“ (Russia, for Russia and Post Soviet Russian Speaking Countries and etc..).
At the beginning a number of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Magazines were of methodical character. These Magazines were teaching the bodybuilders how to train from the primityve beginning to the Top Professional Level. Through decades the President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS collected and translated materials and documents from different possible sources, analised, evaluated and systemized them and finally presented as methodical recommendations for the sportsmen. That were a number of popular International Seria Magazines under the titles like “ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER recommends”, “Training Programs of the World’s Best Bodybuilders”, “Bodybuilding Stars Recommend” etc..). Ending the 90-ties of the last century basing on these Magazines a number of new generations of bodybuilders were born and educated. Wishing to have these Magazines in their collections the libraries of a number of Countries addressed the International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Headquarters (like German State Library of Leipzig, Germany).
Today the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ („Sportinis fitnesas ir kultūrizmas“, „Спортивный фитнес и культуризм») magazine has only informative International character but this makes it to be even more important. The Magazine covers most important World‘s Bodybuilding and Fitness Events and it gives true situation of sport on Official International Level, sets the goals of the sport for the future. Nobody else in the World does it, but the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F..

GENADIJ BALDIN

In the sixties of the last Century a noticable Socialist World weightlifting and bodybuilding person was Russian GENADIJ BALDIN (Балдин Геннадий, 1934 – 2013). In weightlifting his trainer was a known specialist ROMAN MOROZ (Роман Мороз). Being interested in bodybuilding GENADIJ BALDIN wanted to know more and addressed a weightlifting Olympic Champion JURIJ VLASOV (Юрий Власов). JURIJ VLASOV told him to find GEROG TENNO (Георг Тенно). After this both TENNO and BALDIN worked in bodybuilding together.

GENADIJ BALDIN was a good bodybuilder of his time and during the 1966 – 1968 participated at various competitions. Also he run a gym in Moscow.

In 1968 GENADIJ BALDIN was among five U.S.S.R. leading persons who created the second International Bodybuilding Federation in the Socialist World. The first federation was created in 1963 under the order of the U.S.S.R. Sport Ministry (Gocskomsport). It was under controll of the U.S.S.R. Weightlifting Federation. It was BOB HOFFMAN who influenced the U.S.S.R. Sport Ministry to set the Bodybuilding Federation. We would like to pay attention that under the efforts of BOB HOFFMAN since 1947 until 1969 World‘s official sport of bodybuilding was rulled by F.I.H.C.. In 1969 F.I.H.C. organized World Weightlifting Championship in Warszawa (Democratic Republic of Poland). It was a tradition that at the same time F.I.H.C. organized bodybuilding „Mr. Universe“. Then the representatives of the Socialist Countries first time saw live bodybuilders.

Being among the five U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation Chairmen GENADIJ BALDIN took part in organizing International Contests in 1968 – 1969 in Klaipeda, Kaunas, Vilnius (Lithuania), Warszawa and Sopot.

After the prohibition of Bodybuilding Sport in the Socialist Countries in 1973 GENADIJ BALDIN worked with the U.S.S.R. National Weightlifting Team.

Due to great work done to International Bodybuilding Sport the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International in 2021 awarded GENADIJ BALDIN with the „Honour Silver Medal“.

AFTER  70 YEARS WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY WAS REPEATED.

1927 BRONE DAUBARAITE AND 1997 EDITA DAUBARAITE.

International sport society knows very well about the U.S.A. sportsman BRONE DAUBARAITE (Broné “Brownie” Dubar, 1906-1986 m.). Emigrated from Lithuania before the First World War she was the World’s First Fitness Athlete. At that time there was no bodybuilding and fitness sport and BRONE DAUBARAITE did not participate at the competitions. As many athletes and strongmen of her time she travelled though the World Countries and demonstrated her unique sport programs.

„EUROSPORT“ REPORTS ABOUT OVER ALL WORLD CHAMPION.

After seventy years in 1997 Lithuanian gymnastic athlete EDITA DAUBARAITE repeated her grandmother’s BORNE DAUBARAITE achievements. She became the over all World Fitness Champion. That was the first time when a representative from the previous socialist world won such a title. The event was televised by “Eurosport” television several times. Then “Eurosport” spoke much about the EDITA’S gymnastic abilities and International press wrote much about the Lithuanian sportsman. The Ministry of Sport Republic Lithuania started steps to present EDITA DAUBARAITE a high Governmental Award. Unfortunately intrigues did not let to happen this.

Later representing Post Socialist Countries Slovak MARIETA ZIGALOVA (Marieta Žigalova) and  Polish ALEKSANDRA KOBIELAK became the Over All World Fitness Champions too. But it was later.

At this moment EDITA DAUBARAITE (Sendriene) leads the International Judges Committee of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) federation. She is the Director of the Administration of the International Sport University (I.S.U.).
