WORLD RANKING

2020_ra_3m.jpg

16/03/2020

2020. UNITED WORLD BODYBUILDING RANKING LIST OF ALL TRADITIONAL INTTERNATIONAL  FEDERATIONS.

BEST AM  AND PRO ATHLETES OF THE WORLD.

BASIC BACKGROUND.

If we speak about the official sport, then being the contemporary World‘s Bodybuilding Leader, today the WFF-WBBF (World Body Building Federation, World Fitness Federation) International unites National Organizations from 135 Countries, which represent all Continents.

Every year the WFF-WBBF International in various Countries holds over 60 International Amateur and Professional Events.

WORLD RANKING GENERAL ITEMS.

The idea to start to undeline and evaluate the copetitive results of the Best World‘s Bodybuilders struck us many years ago. All Internationally known participating sportsmen get points which are added and calculated in the World Bodybuilding Ranking List (RL) year after a year and contest after the contest.  Again as it is in our Unique Global Project  of the WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA, starting with the times of the Legendary EUGENE SANDOW (1898) the RL covers the period of time of  over 120 years. No other federations in the World do anything like this. Also there are different World Rankings for the amateur and for the Professional athletes.

TRADITIONAL CLASSIC INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING ORGANIZATIONS.

Again as it is  underlined in the WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA, the RL counts only the Traditional Classic International Bodybuilding Organizations from the year these organizations stated their first official activities: the WFF-WBBF (World Body Building Federation, World Fitness Federation, since 1968), the UK Sport Public Club NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Association, since 1950), the WABBA (World Amateur Body Building Association, since 1976), and the IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders, since 1970). Some time ago results of the athelets from new federations of the IBFA (International Bodybuilding and Fitness Association, since 2001) and NAC (National Athletic Committee, since 2005) were included into the World RL.

RECOGNIZED CLASSIC TRADITIONAL CONTESTS ONLY.

In the RL we count only RECOGNIZED TRADITIONAL OFFICIAL COMPETITIONS: the Amateur and Professional World and Continent Championships and the „Universe“ Contest. As an exclusion to the mentioned above we count the results of the famous „Amber Prix International“ as for long time having no other possiblities  due to  political reasons  this International Contest  served as the World Amateur Championship of theall  Socialist Countries. The USSR Sport Ministry (Goskomsport) in 1987 gave to the „Amber Prix International“ status of the official USSR bodybuilding Championship (see International Internet Site www.wff.lt, read in diferent languages articles and forum topics „Various International Bodybuilding Organizations“ and  the „World Bodybuilding History. How it was in real“).

For example, in the WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA  and the RL we wanted to give real respect to a number of famous World Class Bodybuilders but unfortunatelly during all their sport carrieer they participated only at the unofficial commercial shows and various „festivals“ which are not bodybuilding sport contests in real. What we are to list: „Tampa Pro“, „San Chose“, various „Classics“  etc...?  What is it if we are  looking from the piont of view of the Official Traditional Sport? Ask any Ministry of Sport of any Country and the answer is always the same – it is Nothing valuable. For example, to speak definetelly, winning lots of various  commercial „shows“  a great bodybuilder DENNIS JAMES has never been a Continental or a World Champion, not Amateur and  neither Professional. How to characterize his achievemens in the World Bodybuilding History? Just to say he is „a big boy“ who won a lot of the competitions that were not Official???

WORLD RANKING LIST POINT SYSTEM.

In the RL we evaluate participating Athletes by points: after every participation for the 1-st place in the Amateur Class they  get 8 points and in the Professional Class they get 10 points. Then every place down makes one point less. The final amount of points make the exact Athletes placing in the RL.

LIES IN FEDERATIONS

NABBA THROW AWAY GRAEME LANCEFIELD AFTER HIS LIES.

REAL WFF HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GRAEME LANCEFIELD.

REAL WFF INVITES FOOLED BY LANCEFIELD NATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS.

On January 14, 2020 the International WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  again spoke with the Officials of NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Association) International. International President of NABBA EDDY ELWOOD  addresses bodybuilders not to be fooled by misinformation of GRAEME LANCEFIELD. A number of National Presidents of the organization of GRAEME LANCEFIELD  are upset that they were fooled for the last several years.

 

UNINTELLIGENCE OF GRAEME LANCEFIELD SURPRISES THE BODYBUILDING WORLD.

On January 1 and January 3, 2020 the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International Headquarters received several letters and calls  from a famous UK Bodybuilder and a NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Assocoation)  Chairman EDDY ELWOOD.

EDDY ELWOOD is angry about the unintelligent behavior of GRAEME LANCEFIELD. EDDY insists that GRAEME LANCEFIELD must stop telling lies about his connections with NABBA as he has nothing to do with this great organization. GRAEME LANCEFIELD’S lies about NABBA  and WFF-WBBF history are terrible.

«Hi, Edmundas,

as you know Graeme Lancefield is in competition with your own WFF. I want the truth be known. Daniel his son is claiming the WFF history as theirs. And I know the history you told me is yours from a show called the Amber Prix. Would you mind if you would Please Comment on my post saying you run the WFF and the 1968 history Graeme Lancefield and his WFF have stolen off you and is in fact history from a show you have ran since 1968 called the Amber prix and WFF was formed in the mid 90s with yourself and Klaus Hoffman This will clarify the birth of the WFF and help us both.

Thank you,

Eddy Ellwood»

 

“Hi Edmundas,

NEWS from the original Nabba since 1950.
NABBA and WFF.
After seeing a post from Nabba India incorporating myself in a joint NABBA/WFF (Lancefield) promotion and other posts with fabricated history on!

It was necessary to post the following to show NABBAs stance with the WFF!
It was discussed at the NABBA Universe congress that NABBA has never had any affiliation with WFF (Lancefield).
NABBA is a lone non profit making amateur organisation,with democracy and a committee that decides any change democratically, we make decisions as a committee and an amalgamation of the two organisations was never voted on or approved.

Nabba has always stood alone.
The WFF (Lancefield)  and it’s fake fabricated history of 1968,was set up to organise fitness classes it has no democratic committee, their decisions are made by its President The organisation was set up by Klaus Hoffman and Edmundas Daubaras, in 1995 and not 1968 which is the fake history seen on Wikipedia without any history, it is actually stolen without permission from its organiser Edmundas Daubaras, a competition called the Amber Prix which dates back to 1968 and belongs to Edmundas! Not WFFs history?
Eventually Edmundas and Klause parted ways and if you are bothered to research it, there’s now two WFF federations,neither of which supports the other, one belonging to Edmundas,the other to Graeme Lancefield, who eventually took over from Klaus Hoffman in 2013. Graeme used his NABBA status to influence and join all NABBA countries to WFF (Lancefield)  and eventually without democracy joined it to the Nabba name , no votes were ever taken.and I have the evidence of the true history if anyone cares to see it ! When the reigns of the Nabba Presidency were handed to me, It was my duty to the members to be loyal to Nabba and assist its members to do my best for its future and remain one of the best, certainly the most historic,authentic and oldest bodybuilding federation in the world!
Without prejudice and from what I see and now know about the WFF (Lancefield), I rightly started asking questions, about the authenticity of the WF F(Lancefield)  and its 1968 history! Nabba is transparent and does not fabricate, invent,make up lies or dictate to its members, we do not support the way in which the WFF (Lancefield)  is managed! We at the original NABBA are all in agreement and we have asked for all Nabba countries to remove the Nabba name and logo from any WFF promotion! So please do not use my photo alongside any WFF (Lancefield)  promotions and please respect our decision to stand alone!
We have no problem in countries wanting to stay affiliated to both federations, but it has to be done separately.
NABBA and its members stand alone!
This is a true and accurate statement,and has the support of the Original Nabba since 1950
However any country representatives running both federations, we ask that nabba receives the same equal commitment, or somewhere close to the same support at international events.

Eddy Ellwood
Nabba international president”

 

LIES ABOUT WFF HISTORY AND USING OUR PATENTED NAMES WILL LEAD GRAEME LANCEFIELD AND HIS ASSISTANTS TO COURT.

Working from 1968, today WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International is evident International Bodybuilding Leader. The WFF-WBBF unites National Organizations from 135 Countries, that represent all Continents. Every year WFF-WBBF organizes 60 International Events in various Countries. WFF-WBBF International Work is seen by various International Institutions. During the activities the WFF-WBBF International  received State Awards from Governments of various Countries. State Vatican as well (2011).

At the 49-th „Amber Prix International“ (2016) among present several Members of the Parliament Republic Lithuania the Official Representative of the Prime Minister Republic Lithuania ANTANAS VINKUS announced the congratulating words to the WFF-WBBF International and named the International President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS being „the Embassador Republic Lithuania in the World Countries“.

In 2016 WFF-WBBF International initiated registration of  the International Sport University (ISU). In 2012 the WFF-WBBF in various languages started unique global work – the World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia. The Encyclopedia covers information from 1898 until now and reflects the history and statistics of all traditional International Federations and important International Sportsmen and Organizers.

WEAK PERSONS ARE TO LEAVE WFF-WBBF.

We will not go into details of the WFF history. We has spoken about it widelly before. During the fivety years of the International work the WFF left a number of false persons. Some of them were from Lithuania and twenty years ago they had to leave the WFF-International due to the intriques and jealousy. Then they unsuccessfully tried to work with IFBB Lithuania and after joined the Intternational Federation of Homosexual Bodybuilders. Some of them were from Latvia and ten years ago they had to leave the WFF-International when being drunk during the WFF contest in front of the Major City Prague (Czech) behaved awfully and made problems for the WFF federation. Also the Latvians was the reason when a number of athletes had to go to hospital under surgery operation due the false „supplements“ the mentioned Latvians were producing and selling to the sportsmen (we have documents about this). These presonalities never did any strategic International work, they have never did anything sufficient Internationally during their lives. They were only the observers to the Global historic work that was done by other persons. It seems like a humour when now these persons try to make false WFF-International history and try to present it in public.

GRAEME LANCEFIELD TELLS AWFULL LIES.

We have been publishing many times the history of the WFF-International and WBBF-International federations.

Graeme Laqnciefield  is only 2-3 years in International Sport. We know, that Graeme Lancefield does not know many historical things of our sport. Basing on the false public information of Graeme Laqnciefield today a number of persons republish false materials of Graeme Lanciefield.

Does Graeme Lanciefield know what is it „1968“???

Does Graeme Lanciefield ever heard of the WFF federation in Germany before 1996???

Does Graeme Lanciefield know that «his WFF“ egzisted in Germany only from 2005 until 2013?

We think that for publishing false information Graeme Lancefield could stand in front of Court one day. Court of any Country will find the truth easy and the liar will be punnished according the Law.

LIES ABOUT WFF HISTORY AND USING OUR PATENTED NAMES WILL LEAD GRAEME LANCEFIELD AND HIS ASSISTANTS TO COURT.

It is already some time when the mentioned telltalers and loosers try to make false WFF-International history. They try to use illegally our patented names like WFF, World Fitness Federation, „Amber Prix International“, etc. Some years ago they did it too, but then we warned them about our addressing to the Court to clear the matter then they appologized in public about their illegal actions.

Gaeme Lancefield plans some contests in Lithuania and other countries in 2017. Using our patented names will lead Graeme Lancefield and his assistants to Court. Maybe through this Civil Court Prosecution Graeme Lancefield wants to sponsor the WFF-WBBF Federation???

KNOWN INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING PERSONS SAY THAT PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT WFF.

Here we present some sayings about the WFF of a number of Internationally well known Bodybuilding Presons.

1.     KLAUS P.J.HOFFMANN (in 1995 KLAUS P.J.HOFFMANN  together with DSC. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  established the WFF-International):

„You are one of the most interesting and intelligent personalities I learned to know in my life...

That‘s You!

I never gave compliments normally but You are a great fighter for You, Your family, ideas for Lithuania and maybe Europe“ (the original letter of 2004 is attached to this article).

2.     EDDIE ROBINSON (contemporary President NABBA-WFF USA, famous USA Pro Bodybuilder):

„Thank you Mr. DSc Edmundas Daubaras truth needs to be known!! We all know you are WFF!! And are sick of all the fabricated lie bull shit!!“.

„Wishing you continued success WFF Mr. DSc Edmundas Daubaras International President“.

„Much Respect to you Mr. DSc Edmundas Daubaras as I wish you nothing but The Best! Thank you for confirming the truth as the information was taken of your WFF International page per the true history of facts per the WFF, Amber Prix, Figure World Grand Prix and the forming of WFF Project“.

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY. A BOOK.

1968_str_EN_3m.jpg

03/01/2020

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

PERIODS OF BODYBUILDING DEVELOPMENT IN SOCIALIST COUNTRIES

BODYBUILDING IN SOCIALIST WORLD. HISTORIC BOOK.

In the last period of tome International sport society started to be interested in the history of our sport. Some time ago the World learned about the first fitness athlete from the USA BRONE DUBAR (New York, 1927). The World learned about the various International Sport Organizations. Today a number of historical books and articles are published. Many of them are presenting not full and often incorrect information. 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 IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders)  Federation of  Russia. There are many not correct facts and interpretations on the history of the USSR bodybuilding in the book.

Until now nobody did a thorough analysis of our sport history and nobody ever underlined important facts for all World bodybuilding history.

In 2020 working more than fifty years the WFF-WBBF International (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  is planning to publish in various languages a historical book on the Bodybuilding in Socialist Countries. Remember – the Socialist World united half of the World Countries. It was living a separate individual life that was much different from the “Western” World. This book will be a part of our unique International project – the “World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia”.

PREPARED IN LITHUANIA, PRINTED IN INDIA.

The historical book on the Bodybuilding in Socialist Countries will be prepared in Lithuania and printed in India. At this work the I.S.U. International Sports University (www.isuniversity.lt ) is involved very much now. Since 2017 I.S.U. is associated member of the UNESCO at the United Nations (UN). Professors VASILIJ BESPALENKO (Ukraine), LALIT KUMAR SONI (India) and DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and World Bodybuilding Pioneer VALERIJ KORESKOV (Lithuania) are working in the project very much.

PERIODS OF BODYBUILDING DEVELOPMENT IN SOCIALIST COUNTRIES

Basing on the political situation the development of bodybuilding in the socialist countries can be divided in the folowing periods:

-          The First Period, 1958-1970

-          The Second Period, 1971-1975

-          The Third Period, 1976-1981

-          The Fourth Period, 1982-1986

-          The Fifth Period, 1987-1991

THE FIRST PERIOD

Bodybuilding in the socialist countries started at the second part of fifties of the last century. It appeared suddenly and at once became very popular. At that time a man went to cosmoss, a man went deep into the oceans. It seemed that there are no any obstacles at all. Many of people wanted to develop and change their bodies.

There was no any leadership in the socialist bodybuilding at that time.  It was the time of great popularization of bodybuilding. One of the bodybuilding pioneers in the USSR VALERIJ KORESKOV (Vilnius, Lithuania) underlines that he  started bodybuilding training in 1958. The training process was primityve, athletes needed knowlidge. From time to time contests were organized. Every time the judging criteria was different. First information about bodybuilding, famous athletes and some methods of training reached the USSR through bodybuilding magazines „Health and Strength“ and „Iron Man“ (both UK), through „Muscle Builder“(USA) and through “Sport dla Wszystkich“ (Poland).

It were Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary to start bodybuilding in the socialist countries. Bodybuilders of these countries organized local competitons and sometimes competed in between. New famous names appeared such as 1967 Czechoslovakia Champion  JURAJ VYSNY.

First to visit the mentioned countries from the USSR were the Lithuanians. In 1968 Lithuania Kaunas „Azuolas Gym“ bodybuilders  went to Warszawa to compete with „Herkules Gym“ athletes. Lithuanians were led by VYTAUTAS ZUMERIS and Polich team by EUGENIUSZ PAWLOK.

Also in 1968 the first in the USSR International Contest was organized. It was held in Lithuania Kaunas City and national teams of Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia participated there. The competiton lasted two days and six thousand spectators filled the biggest hall of the city. Then the over all Champion was LEONAS PIVORIUNAS (Vilnius, Lithuania).

After that the first „Amber Prix International“ (1968, „Gintarinis prizas“,  «Янтарный приз») contest was held in Lithuanian Klaipeda. Again the over all Champion was LEONAS PIVORIUNAS.

Every day bodybuilding became more stronger and more popular. More competitoons were organized and new names came in public. It needed to have definite leadership to give some order for the movement.  During the 1968 contest in Kaunas the „USSR Social Bodybuilding Committee“ («Общественный комитет по атлетической гимнастике СССР») was established. The positions of it‘s members were the folowing:

EXECUTIVE COUNCIL

1.     ROMAN MOROZ, Moscow, Russia

2.     VLADIMIR PETROV, Moscow, Russia

3.     GENADIJ BALDIN, Moscow, Russia

4.     VYTAUTAS ZUMERIS, Vilnius, Lithuania

5.     VALERIJ KOREŠKOV, Vilnius, Lithuania.

COMMITTEE MEMBERS

Along with the Executive Council a number of Committee Members were ellected:

6.     FIODOR MANKO, Leningrad, Russia

7.     ELEONORA VOLOKONCEVA, Leningrad, Russia

8.     VALERIJ SEMIONOV, Tiumen, Russia

9.     VLADIMIR DURNENKO, Omsk, Russia

10.EMANUILAS BEZMOZGIS, Riga, Latvia

11.ERVIN LIBERT, Tallin, Estonia.

Then it was a calm and productive period of the USSR bodybuilding. It came as a tradition and in 1969-1970 the „Amber Prix International“ contests were organized in Klaipeda.  Suddenly due to political reasons in 1971 the bodybuilding activities in the USSR and other socialist countries were stopped. For many years the Communist regime prohibited and prosecuted the bodybuilding.

Closing the year of the 2019 we want to thank all of You for the huge work that was done. We have been working much and achieved good positive results in 2019 again. Today the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International federation unites national organizations of 135 countries, that represent all Continents.

During the last fifty years of it‘s International activities, the WFF-WBBF presented the highest International Honour Sport Award – the International Honour Gold Medal. Among the World Sport VIP Persons this Award was presented to the President Parliament Austria Professor Alfred Gerstl, Slovakia Prime Minister Vladimir Meciar, Slovakia Prime Minister Robert Fico, the Mecenats Stefan Hrcka (Slovakia) and Jerzy Gotowski (Poland), Aleksandr Gridin (Lithuania), and the Hollywood Sport Personalities Aleksandr Nevsky (Russia-USA), Sylvester Stallone (USA), Ralf Moller (Germany-USA) and Chuck Norris (USA).

In 2019 at the old historic Lithuania Raudondvaris Castle the WFF-WBBF International awarded with the Honour Silver Medal the following V.I.P. Persons: SIGITAS PAULAUSKAS, Mecenat, Lithuania; ANDREJ BASOV, International Vice President WFF-WBBF, Russia; LALIT KUMAR SONI, International Vice President WFF-WBBF, India; DAINIUS DZIKEVICIUS, World Bodybuilding Legend, Lithuani;, VALERIJ KORESKOV, World Bodybuilding Legend, Lithuania; SVETLANA PUGACHEVA, Chairman International Technical Committee, Russia.

During the last period of time the new members were included to the International federation, such as Thailand, Nepal, Singapore, Cambodia and Vietnam.

Working Internationally many official and working visits were organized to various countries, such as India, Thailand, Malaysia, Ukraine, Russia, Slovakia etc..

In 120 years of the World Sport History it was the first time when representing our sport the International President WFF-WBBF DSc. Edmundas Daubaras visited and worked at the Headquarters of the United Nations in Geneva (Switzerland).

Imagine – we organized 60 International Events World Wide! The Official Flag and the Official Himna of the WFF-WBBF International federation were presented at the most important World‘s Events. Especially important to the World‘s official sport were the our sport live history the 52-d „Amber Prix International“ (1968 - 2019, «Янтарный приз», «Gintarinis prizas“), the 30-th World Amateur and Professional Championships, the 20-th  „Universe“ and the 4-th BRICS Championship. In 2019 WFF-WBBF received permition to organize a WFF-WBBF Pro Event on Eiffel Tower in Paris (France). We will do our best to make it in 2020.

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 WFF-WBBF. 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.

Especially we were would like to underline tremendous work done by the WFF-WBBF  International VIP Officials Lalit Soni (India), Andrej Basov, Svetlana Pugacheva and Ksenija Skvorcova (all Russia), Edita Sendriene, Dainius Dzikevicius  and Vytautas Mikuckis (all Lithuania), Jorge Cedale (Argentina), Alloudin Bhatte (Pakistan), Tolga Murat Balikci (Turkey),  Alireza Rasa (Iran), Omid Ramez (Canada), Amirhossein Pourezzat (Malaysia),  Pibe Rodriguez (Paraguay), Gianni Almeida (Brazil), James Davidsom (South Africa), Angelina Romanovic (Latvia), Vasilij Bespalenko (Ukraine), Gvidon Alvantzian (Cyprus), Sergej Medvedev (Uzbekistan), Simo Bogdanoff (Finland), Dave Foster (UK), Leonor Hilario Greffel (Mozambique), Gvidon Alvantzian (Cyprus) and Oleg Akopov (Bulgaria), Wojciech Nadolski and Grazyna Korpan (both Poland) and many other our sport personalities.

The WFF-WBBF International goes on working on the unbelievable huge unique work – the “World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia” (“Pasaulinė kultūrizmo enciklopedija”, «Энциклопедия всемирного культуризма»).  It will be published in various languages. Until now nobody in the World ever dared to do such a tremendous project.

In 2016 under the initiative of the WFF-WBBF International the International Sport University (I.S.U., Tarptautinis sporto universitetas, Международный университет спорта; www.isuniversity.lt ) was established and registered in the European Union. Under the guidance of talanted administrators and scientists now it works succcessfully. In 2017 the ISU became the Associated member of the UNESCO organization at the UN (United Nations). Professor of four Universities Vasilij Bespalenko works  activelly at the International Sports University.

We work with various power sports over 50 years. In 2012 under the initiative of our representatives of Canada, India, Italy and Lithuania we established the WPSF (World Power Sports Federation).

Various International and National Social and Governmental Institutions notice huge efforts of the WFF-WBBF International. We were presenting and publishing  information on this many times. During the International Academic Conference in Lvov (Ukraine) the Rector of the International Sport University DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS received a high award. The Rector of the historically oldest Ukraine Stavropigion University Professor DSc. YAROSLAV KMIT awarded DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS for his huge International social activities with the highest University Award – the „ORDER OF MERIT“. Not long ago the same Order was presented to Kijev and Ukraine Patriarch Filaret (Патриарх Киевский и всея  Украины Филарет).

 Some time ago the Chairman Parliament Republic Slovakia Mgr. Art. Andrej Hrciar sent his congratulating words to the WFF-WBBF International and also he awarded the International President DSc. Edmundas Daubaras with the Honour Award of the Parliament Republic Slovakia. After several years we would like to remember that in 2012 in Vatican through His personal letter the Roman Pope Benedictus XVI (Benedetto XVI)  blessed the WFF-WBBF International activities.

Representing World‘s Fitness and Bodybuilding Sport the WFF-International and the WBBF-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 WFF and WBBF to be the today’s International Leaders in Bodybuilding and Fitness World Wide. We mean the Official Level. The WFF and WBBF do not live yesterday’s life. We have lots of  new Global Bodybuilding Projects ahead.

HEALTH, SUCCESS, LUCK AND HAPPINESS IN 2020!!!

God bless all of us in our sincere pray!

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY. MR.URAL

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 IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders)  Federation of  Russia. There are many not correct facts and interpretations on the history of the USSR 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 USSR 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 USSR. 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” (1968-2019, “Gintarinis prizas”, «Янтарный приз»). Participating at the 1991 “Mr. Ural” Contest contemporary President of the WFF-WBBF (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 USSR bodybuilders participated teams of Germany, Holland and USA – the judges were only of the USSR 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 USSR 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 USSR 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 USSR. 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 USSR. Only the trade unions of the USSR were giving special licences for the best workers to buy these things. For German, Holland and USA participants of the 1991 “Mr. Ural” these carpets were of no value. But the representatives of the USSR looked upon this differently. For them the carpets were of great value.  A scandal started during the award ceremony. German, Holland and the USA 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 USA 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 IFBB World Champion in Moscow. By the way the 2004 IFBB 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 USSR 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 USSR Bodybuilding Federation VLADIMIR DUBININ. Then a special Congress of the USSR Bodybuilding Federation Council was announced. The Congress put punishment to the 1991 “Mr. Ural” organizer  ALTAF GALEJEV. Then ALTAF GALEJEV left the IFBB and started working with another International Federation.
