ESTONIA BODYBUILDING. SHORT REVUE.

2013ee2m.jpg

12/06/2013

INNAR MARDO – THE HEART OF ESTONIA BODYBUILDING.

During the long lasting history of Estonia bodybuilding there were no more so High Bodybuilding Personalities, so skilled organizers and trainers as INNAR MARDO.

INNAR MARDO  started his International activities with the prestigeous „Georg Tenno Memorial“ competitions. During his life he became very Professional in this sport. Together with the contemporary President of the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International Federation DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS, INNAR MARDO was for many years in contact with all main World‘s Bodybuilding Leaders such as BEN WEIDER, OSCAR HEIDENSTAM, SERGE NUBRET.

 

AMBER PRIX INTERNATIONAL.

Representing Estonia for many years INNAR MARDO was the Head of all National Teams to the World‘s Oldest Tradinional Bodybuilding Contest – the „Amber Prix International“ (1968-2013).

During the twenty years of  prohibition and prosecution of  Bodybuilding Sport in the Socialist Countries and the USSR, the „Amber Prix International“ (evey year organized in Klaipeda, Lithuania) was the unofficial World Bodybuilding Championship of the Socialist Countries and the Bodybuilding Championship of the USSR (see in various languages more information on the International Internet Site www.wff.lt  main page and forum topics „World Bodybuilding History. How it was in real“ and also in the Official WFF-WBBF International Magazine „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“, Issues No. 28,33,34).

 

FIRST PARTICIPATIONS ABROAD.

For the 20 years of bodybuiding prohibition and prosecution in the Socialist Countries and the USSR bodybuilding contests were organized very hard and Always not regularly. The only one exception was „Amber Prix International“. Bodybuilders could only dream to participate at bodybuilding contests abroad. Again DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  took the initiative. Working for the coming mutual International Event in Czechoslovakia, DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS communicated with the President National Bodybuilding Federation Czechoslovakia VOJTECH FIALA, the organizers Professor FRANTISEK BULVA, IVEN MACH, IVAN KOLOUCH.

Finally DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS reached the aim – the official invitations and permitions were received and the top USSR bodybuilders could go to compete in Czechoslovakia. Working on this Project DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS took part in two Congresses of the Council National Bodybuilding Federation Czechoslovakia (1977, Brno, Bratislava), visited the Camp of the National Bodybuilding Team Czechoslovakia, had meetings with the publishers of the Czechoslovakia Sport Magazine „Trener“ JOSEF MAZAK  and  MILAN PERDOCH. But it happened as it happens very often – a number  of the USSR bodybuilding leaders started inner fighting and this ruined the USSR-Czechoslovakia Project so hard developed by DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and National Bodybuilding Federation Czechoslovakia.

Then DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS gave his preliminary work done to INNAR MARDO.  Using personal contacts of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS Estonia made the first step abroad and participated at the International Bodybuilding Contest in Poland. OLEV ANNUS  was the Over All Winner again and this attracted attention to the Soviet Bodybuilding and participating Athletes very much. Estonians received a number of new invitations to participate at the International Events in the Socialist Countries. Then led by INNRA MARDO  Estonians OLEV ANNUS  and INDREK OTSUS (also the Champion of the „Amber Prix International“) were the Winners again.

Later on when times of the „Gorbachov perestrojka“ came many other Estonia bodybuilding teams managed to participate at the International Events abroad. These Estonia bodybuilding teams were led by PRANAS MICKEVICIUS  and  PAVEL KOSENKO.

 

HEPLING ESTONIANS.

In 1989 DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS for several months was working in Tallinn. This year Estonia bodybuilding was going down and nobody wanted to organize any competitions.

Supporting the Estonians DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS spoke with INDREK OTSUS  and pressed him to take the initiative to organize „Georg Tenno Memorial“. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS invited bodybuilding teams of the surrounding countries and the contest was successfuly organized.

 

NATIONAL FEDERATION WFF-WBBF ESTONIA.

Ending the nineties of the last Century INNAR MARDO  was very active in the work of the WFF-WBBF International. At that time the National federation WFF-WBBF Estonia was set and registered officially. INNAR MARDO  was the first President of the National Federation WFF-WBBF Estonia.

In 2001 INNAR MARDO  was one of the main organizers of the WFF-WBBF Europe Championship in the capital Estonia City of Tallinn.

After unexpectidly early INNAR MARDO  passed away the Estonians use to organize anual „Innar Mardo Memorial“ Contest.

During the last period of time the Presidents of the National Federation WFF-WBBF Estonia were a number of known bodybuilders and organizers:  INNAR MARDO (1998-2001 m.), PAVEL KOSENKO (2001-2008 m.), IGOR ODNENKO (2008), ALEKSANDR SEVCOV (after 2009 m.).

In 2009 National Federation WFF-WBBF Estonia organized the WFF-WBBF Amateur World Championship in Tallinn. No other International bodybuilding contest in Estonia sport history had never been so high in the level of organization, level of the athletes, number of the participating countires.

During the last period one of Estonia Reform Party Leaders ALEKSEJ FILATOV works very muchfor the country bodybuilding.

 

HIGHEST OFFICIAL MEETINGS.

Developing bodybuilding sport in Estonia a number of important official meetings were made.

In 2008 Intrenational President WFF-WBBF DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS took part at the official meeting at the Estonia National Olympic Committee and discussed sport problems with the General Secretary NOC Estonia TOOMAS TONISE.

In 2009 Intrenational President WFF-WBBF DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS took part at the official meeting with Estonia Reform Party (Reformierakond) Leaders at the Estonia Parliament (Riigikogu).  

Also  in 2009 Intrenational President WFF-WBBF DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS took part at the official meeting at the Ministry of Culture Republic Estonia where discussed sport matters with the vice minister TONU SEIL who was responsible for the sport in Estonia.

 

ESTONIA GREATEST INTERNATIONAL EVENTS EVER.

During the history of Estonia bodybuilding three great International Events were organized. That were Amateur World Championships (WFF-WBBF in 2009 and IFBB in 2010) and WFF-WBBF Amateur Europe Championship (2001).

 

ESTONIANS – WORLD BODYBUILDING CHAMPIONS.

During the history of Estonia bodybuilding a number of Estonians became World Amateur Champions. That were OLEV ANNUS (1992, NABBA), MAREK KALMUS (2005,WFF-WBBF), ALEKSANDR SEVCOV (2009, Over All WFF-WBBF World Champion), OTT KIIVIKAS (2010, IFBB).

WFF-WBBF BELORUSSIA.

2013sa68m.jpg

10/06/2013

HISTORYCAL BACKGROUND.

WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International started it‘s activities with the historical „Amber Prix International“ contests  (1968-2013).

Belarus bodybuilders started participating at the „Amber Prix International“ contests in 1977. Then the first competitors were VALERIJ BOGDANOVIC  and VLADIMIR ALEKSANDROVIC.

At the 1995 “AMber Prix International“ the Winners were VIKTOR SACHARUK  and  TATJANA KOVALKO.

At the 1996 WFF-WBBF Europe Amateur Championship  ANDREJ KRIKSIN  became a Category Winner.

At the 1998 WFF-WBBF World Amateur Championship the Vice Champion was TATJANA KOVALKO.

At the 2001 WFF-WBBF Europe Amateur Championship the Vice Champion was DMITRIJ KRASKOVSKIJ.

 

„AMBER PRIX INTERNATIONAL“.  TIME OF PROHIBITION AND PROSECUTION OF BODYBUILDING.

Due to the political reasons in the early seventies of the last century for nearly two decades Bodybuilding was prohibited and prosecuted in the Socialits Countries, especially in the USSR (Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics). Most Bodybuilding leaders got afrayed of the Communist Regime and step away, but not all of them. Among  the few left fighters for the recognition of Bodybuilding  was DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS who on his own initiative and his own risk began the dialoque with the USSR Communist Party Central Committee (Центральный Комитет Коммунистической Партии), the USSR Government (Правительство СССР), the USSR Sport Ministry (Goskomsport, Госкомспорт) administration and the most important communist press – Newspapers „Pravda“ (Правда), „Izvestija“ (Известия) and „Sovietskij Sport“ Советский спорт). DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wrote many letters, many times he spoke on phone with the represntatives of the Institutions mentioned above.  Finally DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS personally went to to the USSR Capital City Moscow (Russia) to present the officially registered Bodybuilding defending letters to the Headquarters of the all mentioned above Institutions. Those letters of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  was like a real „petition“ of the Bodybuilding Sport.

Nobody of the Communist Regime leaders stopped the prohibition and the prosecution of Bodybuilding, but they gave the unbelievable unique permittion for DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  to go on organizing „Amber Prix International“ Bodybuilding Contest in Klaipeda City (Lithuania). In fact for the two decades of Bodybuilding prohibition the „Amber Prix International“ was the unofficial USSR Bodybuilding Championship and this fact later was accepted by the USSR Sport Ministry when it began presenting honourable „USSR Sport Master“ names for the „Amber Prix International“ Champions. In fact, having no other alternative for the over twenty years time the „Amber Prix International“ was the World Champiosnip of the Socialist Countries. In that time World level Contests in the Western Countries were no higher in the level of Bodybuilders and in the level of organisation, no higher in the number of the participating Countries. In some aspects „Amber Prix International“ was even higher that those in the West.

 

OFFICIAL BELARUS NATIONAL FEDERATION.

Working without official juridical registration for many years the  Belarus bodybuilding was led by VALERIJ BOGDANOVIC, VLADIMIR ALEKSANDROVIC, contemporary General Secretary National Olympic Committee Republic Belarus SERGEJ KATULIN and DMITRIJ KRASKOVSKIJ.

In 2010 the official National Belarus WFF-WBBF federation was registered in the country. The President of the federation is VLADIMIR KURILCIK.

2013. POLAND STEPS TO BECOME ONE OF WORLD‘S STRONGEST BODYBUILDING COUNTRIES.

2013pl56m.jpg

29/05/2013

HISTORY.

Poland and Czechoslovakia were ones of the first European Countries which started developing Bodybuilding Sport in the Europe Continent. WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International historically is connected with Polish Bodybuilding from the old sixties of the last century. There were many different  common actions together in Lithuania and Poland, but unfortunatelly that had no constant working background. From the seventies up to nineties Bodybuilding Sport was prohibited and prosecuted in the Socialist Countries, especially in the USSR. Every survived as they could then.

At that time knowing various languages the President WFF-WBBF International EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  was personally in the centre of all most important International Bodybuilding Events. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was in touch with nearly all World‘s Bodybuilding Leaders of all International Federations and of many National Federations as well. Every possible moment EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was visiting and corresponding them.

When everybody was afrayed to work for Bodybuilding EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  did a risky for those times of Bodybuilding prohibition preliminary work and sent to a Polish Event a Legendary Estonia Bodybuilding Leader INNAR MARDO and the Over All „Amber Prix International“ Winner OLEV ANNUS (for many years „Amber Prix International“ was the onofficial USSR Bodybuilding Championship later recognized by the Sport Ministry). It was Poland which hosted first Best USSR Bodybuilders at the International  Contest in Warszawa (1979).  Then OLEV ANNUS  became the Over All Winner in Warszawa.

For more details see the International Bodybuilding Page www.wff.lt, read „Articles“ and also forum topic „World Bodybuilding History. How it was in real“.

 

POLISH BODYBUILDING THUNDERSTONE EXPOLSION.

Under the initietive of ANDRZEJ MACIEJEWSKI Poland National Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation became a constant member of the WFF-WBBF International in 2006.

During these years a very noticable and important work was done by the Over All World Amateur Champion ALEKSANDRA KOBIELAK who with her unique personal Great Talant leads the WFF-WBBF International „Fit-Kid“ Divission now.

Under the support of the Minister Sport Poland ZBIGNIEW PACELT in 2008 Poland organized a successfull WFF-WBBF Amateur World Championship in Bydgoszcz City. The Over All Winner was WOJCIECH MAX NADOLSKI and the contemporary National President WFF-WBBF Poland  ANDRZEJ MAJCHRZYK  was the Vice Champion too.

In 2012 Best Bodybuilders Poland entered a number of World‘s most important International Bodybuilding Contests – the WFF-WBBF Pro World Championship „Amber Prix OLYMPIA“ (30 000 US dollars), WFF-WBBF World Amateur Championship and WFF-WBBF Pro „Universe“.

In May, 2013 the WFF-WBBF Poland organized a terrific National Championship (Starogard Gdanski) and participated with a strongest National Team possible at the 45-th „Amber Prix International“ (1968-2013) and WFF-WBBF Europe Cup Open in Kaunas (Lithuania). To say the truth – the Bodybuilding World was in real shok. Nobody ever expected that Poland has so many good International Level of Bodybuilders! Polish Bodybuilders proved that today only the USA, Russia, Brazil and Iran can be on the same level as Bodybuilders Poland  are. The WFF-WBBF International thanks the National Federation WFF-WBBF Poland for good work done and we are proud of them! Go on, Poland!

ENCYCLOPEDIA OF MODERN BODYBUILDING. UNIQUE ANOTHER VIEW.

2012en1m.jpg

19/01/2013

After evaluating the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International bodybuilding activities that are lasting for  nearly 50 years, the WFF-WBBF received substantional political and financial support for a huge global project called „Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding“, the ultimate book on bodybuilding  («Энциклопедиясовременногокультуризма»).  No other International Bodybuilding Organization ever dared to start such a great Project as this one. At the moment the support reaches over 200 000 US dollars, but as the encyclopedia will be translated into various languages, the amount of money will be enlarged.

The positive activities of the WFF-WBBF International have been seen widely. Even the Vatican. In 2011 the Roman Pope Benedictus XVI presented to the heads of the WFF-WBBF International his Medallion (Medaglia Ufficiale di Pontificato di Sua Santita Benedetto XVI) and in 2012 he blesed the WFF-WBBF International activities.

 

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The real work over this unique global Project already started.  The Head of the Professional working goup of the „Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding“  is the President WFF-WBBF International EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. This Encyclopedia will be as the „opponent“ to the previous Bodybuilding Histories ans stories that were written for the commercial private sport structures, most of the USA. As you know – sport commercial people wrote bodybuilding sport history for themselves in person and there was no place for lots of the Bodybuilding Legends.  Bodybuilding history of South America, Africa and Asia Countries have never been even mentioned before. Many important International Persons and International Bodybuilding activities and competitions (among them the World‘s oldest Bodybuilding Contest – the „Amber Prix International“) too. Not a single word! And this lack of information coveres  the totaly biggest part of the World!!! The Encyclopedia will present over five hundred well known athletes, who have participated at the International Events during the last fifty years.

We will do our best to write the Real Another Bodybuilding History, that will be proved by the presented real documents and facts. We will present the legal and also we will underline the unofficial federations and various kind of sport units. We will present many until now hidden VIP International Bodybuilding Persons, Bodybuilding Legends, Great Sportsmen and their Trainers. We will show a number of hidden International Contests, that played and still play a great role for the development of the global bodybuilding sport in general. Also on the real definite bodybuilding examples we will present the inovations of the contemporary bodybuilding training methods and thechnologies and dieting.

We hope the Encyclopedia will be a success as until now there has been done nothing similar of the kind in the World. We work on preparing and publishing bodybuilding materials from 1989. Some of our previous magazines were published in various languages in over 2 000 000 issues and sucessfully spread in various countries. A number of International Bodybuilding generations grew on our books and magazines.

 

SOURCES.

First of all for the „Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding“  we will use our huge historic personal archieves of the WFF-WBBF International. Also the ones of the  IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders), WABBA (World Amateur Body Building Association) and NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Association) that we collected during the 50 years lasting bodybuilding activities. Also we use the IFBB juridic documents that were given us by the IFBB Owner and life President BEN WEIDER, the IFBB Lower ALEX BAUER and the IFBB Vice President PAUL CHUA, the WABBA Owner and President SERGE NUBRET, NABBA Presidents OSCAR HEIDENSTAM and IVAN DUNBAR.

BODYBUILDERS WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT IFBB.

There is a big mess in the International Bodybuilding today. We see lots of International Federations but no one works for the sake of our sport to be recognized. Aiming for official support no one of those federations  is in dialogue with other International Organizations, Governmental and Social Institutions  of various countries.

USA bodybuilding lives it’s own isolated life and does not care of anything else. Manipulating between official and illegal sport the European bodybuilding suffers hard times. Australia, Asia and Africa have never  played  a noticeable role in the Global bodybuilding sport movement.

It seems today that uniting National Organizations from 107 Countries which represent all Continents, only the WFF-WBBF International cares for bodybuilding as official sport and makes real big efforts for the recognition of bodybuilding as sport even on the highest official level possible.

To have a good start on official level any International Federation must be registered by Law. It must have a registered Constitution and work on it’s basis.

Now we will speak of the IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) as it was very close to get the positive result until the real truth about the IFBB came to public. All of us learned, that the IFBB is not a sport federation, but a private property of few people and that the sportsmen of different countries have been fooled about this for decades...

We underline again and again: if the IFBB is so much unserious, then all other International Federations suffer still more legal juridical problems.

After 2009 IFBB  split, the International Vice President IFBB PAUL CHUA (Singapore) and President National Federation  IFBB Austria and Lower IFBB International ALEX BAUER presented for the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  International Headquarters over 600 IFBB juridical  documents and asked to publish them on forum of the International Internet Site www.wff.lt  . To study thoroughly so many documents takes a lot of time. We published some of them before, but after a lot of requests from bodybuilders of many countries we have studied them and published once again with our remarks and conclusions. We named the article: “ILLEGAL IFBB JURIDICAL, FINANCIAL, DOPING AND SPORT POLITIC AFFAIRS. DOCUMENTS”. Here below with some comments we will give a short revue of the IFBB documents.

 

STATEMENT 1.

IFBB HAS NEVER BEEN AN INTERNATIONAL SPORT FEDERATION.

According the juridical registration documents the IFBB legal status is of a private commercial company. As per documents presented by the USA Bodybuilding Legend DAN LURIE and Attorney of Law ADAM ATLAS the IFBB was registered in 1969 in Canada and it had three Canadian owners: BEN WEIDER, REIMOND CREPAULT and JAGUELINE ROY. As until 1969 the IFBB had no legal juridical registration, it’s legal official history starts only in 1969.

 

STATEMENT 2.

WHO IS BEHIND IFBB COMMERCIAL COMPANY TODAY.

The letter of ALEX BAUER  addressed to the contemporary Owner of the IFBB commercial company Spanish RAFAEL SANTONJA  proves, that 2004 - 2007 IFBB declarations for Canada (Quebec) Government were signed by DIANE GIROUX, KIM VU, LUC AUTET. These persons are not known to anybody of the bodybuilding world. Then who really rules the IFBB? Public information shows, that the Ownership of the IFBB Company has been tranfered from Canada to Spain (from BEN WEIDER  to RAFAEL SANTONJA),  but the IFBB official juridic address remained the same, the Canadian one. A very important IFBB juridical document of resighning of BEN WEIDER  and appointing RAFAEL SANTONJA  was signed by PAMELA KAGAN. How it could be? Who gave the power for PAMELA KAGAN  to do this? IFBB members were angry about the secret nomination of RAFAEL SANTONJA . IFBB members never discussed about this and finally they were facing the fact done. And again this was “a secret action”.

 

 

STATEMENT 3.

RAFAEL SANTONJA TRIES TO EXPLAIN THE CLUMSY SITUATION.

More and more questions appeared from the IFBB members to RAFAEL SANTONJA, who became the IFBB President in a very hard to explain way. IFBB members asked about the IFBB finances, activities, the difference from IFBB private Company in Canada and the IFBB private Company in Spain and a number of Spanish commercial firms belonging to RAFAEL SANTONJA. They asked why the IFBB International documents were without signatures, why everything was so secret form IFBB members. Then RAFAEL SANTONJA  tried to explain the situation to the General Secretary and Lower IFBB International, President IFBB Austria ALEX BAUER. This explanation letter rised even more juridical and financial questions.

 

STATEMENT 4.

IFBB/EFBB ILLEGAL FINANCIAL DEALS. LET US KNOW THE TRUTH.

For decades everything was well in the IFBB. Until the President IFBB Austria ALEX BAUER became one of the IFBB leaders and the IFBB Lower.  ALEX BAUER  was one of the three subjects who set the new IFBB federation in 2007. Seeing dirty affairs done behind his back, affairs for which he could be punished by Law, ALEX BAUER  asked RAFAEL SANTONJA to present him a number of the juridical and financial IFBB/EFBB documents. He underlined, that after 25 years of his service to IFBB federation he finally learned it does not exist. The real is only private IFBB commercial company of BEN WEIDER  in Canada. IFBB officials elected at the International Congress have no juridical power as the federation is illegal. Also they are null in the private commercial company of IFBB. The IFBB federation that is advertised on Internet Site www.ifbb.com – does not exist in real. The real name is another one. IFBB and EFBB being not registered in a proper juridical way means illegal and of no value Contracts, illegal collected money payments and fees, illegal work payments and escaping to pay taxes. IFBB/EFBB  finances are in total disorder and chaos and it is impossible to get the truth among lots of legal and illegal accounts which are hidden from the IFBB/EFBB members.

ALEX BAUER  was angry with the fact that RAFAEL SANTONJA  took 100 000 dollars that were given for the federation. The money did not reach IFBB and disappeared… the 2002 IFBB/EFBB International Congress in Minsk (Belarus) decided that the federation’s money can not go to the accounts of RAFAEL SANTONJA’s private commercial companies, but it goes… ALEX BAUER  found out that IFBB is not registered and it is not existing in Spain. Then how the IFBB money can be used for the IFBB when there is no IFBB at all???

ALEX BAUER  scrutinized the financial and juridical situation and made the  schemes how RAFAEL SANTONJA  uses to take the money from the IFBB/EFBB accounts to his private commercial companies.

Having no definite answer from RAFAEL SANTONJA  ALEX BAUER  started informing IFBB members of the situation and the war started.  The long working IFBB members, who dared to open their mouths, were forced to leave the IFBB. Finally the IFBB split in 2009.

 

STATEMENT 5.

IFBB REGULARLY VIOLATES WADA RULES. DOPING COURT TRIALS FOR ONE OF THE INTERNATIONAL IFBB LEADERS.

During the last twenty years owners of the IFBB commercial company declare their priorities over other federations due to the IFBB Anti Doping Contract with WADA. It irritates other federations, which know the IFBB real situation to be very different from that in their declarations. That were main reasons, that IOC refused to recognize and support IFBB. It was the reason, that the „World Games“ and „Asia Games“ „deleted“ IFBB from their members.

The documents show that among suspected to manipulate with doping cases is the wife of RAFAEL SANTONJA. There were happenings when at the IFBB contests  total National Teams were caught using doping (for example, Russia, Czech). National Bodybuilding Team Egypt is the real World‘s „doping leader“. Though it has constant doping problems, the IFBB always praise this federation. Last case was in Thailand, when 8 of 9 Egypt bodybuilders left the contest for this reason. IFBB neglects Anti Doping rules and WADA Code as often there is no doping control at IFBB competitions, including the highest level events.

IFBB was accused  taking 30 doping tests and presenting for WADA only 15; hiding doping control results from IFBB members and International sport society; giving minimal simbolic punnishment for the selected athletes, who have received „live“ disqualification for multiple positive doping results;  hiding a number of cases, when IFBB  young sportsmen were dead.

It could be a good example to underline the questions discussed through one of the closest co-workers of RAFAEL SANTONJA, a High International IFBB Officer and the National President IFBB Poland PAWEL FILEBORN.

PAWEL FILEBORN  was in under long lasting Polish court trial. A number of   well known Polish sportsmen accuse PAWEL FILEBORN  for 1 000 US dollars selling  bodybuilders definite „doping usage“ programmes and for  10 000 US dollars offering the sportsmen, caught positive during the doping tests, the way to escape the punnishments.

 

STATEMENT 6.

FORGET THE CONSTITUTION. STANISLAV PESAT STANDS AGAINST RAFAEL SANTONJA.

Once when the total National Team IFBB Czech Republic was accused using doping and that was accepted as a fact, then due to this reason the President IFBB Czech Republic STANISLAV PESAT  was made to leave his post.

Organized in 2000 the IFBB Europeean Federation (EFBB) was very passive and did not work in real. Being one of the EFBB founders and seeing that RAFAEL SANTONJA lost his ability to define interests of both IFBB and EFBB, STANISLAV PESAT dared to candidate for the EFBB President’s position.

When STANISLAV PESAT stood against RAFAEL SANTONJA, the IFBB democracy was forgotten in a minute. The nomination of  STANISLAV PESAT was turned down by RAFAEL SANTONJA, who without any discussions left for himself both highest positions in IFBB and EFBB. What democracy and what elections you want in a private commercial company that IFBB is? IFBB acts under the Constitution of the IFBB commercial company, not under the virtual unregistered Constitution that is presented for bodybuilders.

 

Statement 7.

IFBB IS A COMMERCIAL COMPANY, NOT SPORT FEDERATION. OPPONENTS PROVED THIS IN LONDON’S COURT.

IFBB being a corporate commercial enterprise ruins all long lasting image not only of this virtual  “federation”, but it makes a deadly strike for all bodybuilding sport in general.  What serious organizations, Governmental Institutions, Sport Ministries of various countries can speak with IFBB on serious questions? No one!

When in 2009 the IFBB members learned the truth about the IFBB, all national Federations of the IFBB and all World’s Sport Society was in shock. Then due to inner fighting the IFBB split and many National Federations left it. The IFBB Chairmen did not wanted to speak with the IFBB members and he has chosen the way of IFBB being split.

And even after split IFBB continued fooling the International Sport Society and went on with lies. For example IFBB presented for public 30 participating countries at the IFBB Asia Championship in India. In real there were only seven. They have given the names of participants when these participants never visited India. Also there was again no doping control at this IFBB International Event and again IFBB Anti Doping rules and WADA Code were violated. The same situation is with the 2011 IFBB World Championship in Estonia. Now there is quite a big national scandal.

NoIFBB members speak and most prefer to keep silence.

In USA IFBB Pro MILOS SARCEV  gave the truth information on his personal site. But Asia IFBB federation, uniting 38 countries, is thankful to see the IFBB information in different languages on the International Bodybuilding site www.wff.lt (read forum).

Having more time we will publish the IFBB documents that were sent to the President WFF-WBBF International EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS by a close friend of RAFAEL SANTONJA Vice President IFBB Spain HOSE PARDO HIDALGO  and the former BEN WEIDER  assistant  and also the IFBB Vice President and the Owner of  WABBA and a famous bodybuilder SERGE NUBRET.

PRAVOSLAV ORTODOX CHURCH AWARDED AND VATICAN NAMED DISIDENTS.

PREVIEW. TIME OF PROHIBITION AND PROSECUTION OF BODYBUILDING.

Due to the political reasons in the early seventies of the last century for nearly two decades bodybuilding was prohibited and prosecuted in the Socialits Countries, especially in the USSR. Most bodybuilding leaders got afrayed and step away, but not all of them. Among them was EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS who on his own risk began the dialoque with the USSR Communist Party Central Committee, the USSR Government, the USSR Sport Ministry (Goskomsport) administration and the most important communist press – Newspapers „Pravda“, „Izvestija“ and „Sovietskij Sport“. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wrote letters, spoke on phone with them and finally personally went to Moscow (Russia) to present the officially registered bodybuilding defending letters the the Headquarters of the mentioned above Institutions. Those letters of EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  was like real „petitions“ of bodybuilding.

Nobody stopped the prohibition and the prosecution of bodybuilding, but they gave permittion for EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  to go on organizing „Amber Prix International“ Contest in Klaipeda (Lithuania). In fact the „Amber Prix International“ was an unofficial USSR Bodybuilding Championship and this was accepted by the USSR Sport Ministry when it began presenting honourable „USSR Sport Master“ names for the „Amber Prix International“ Champions. They say, the „Amber Prix International“ was the World Champiosnip of the Socialist Countries. World level Contests in the Western Countries were no higher in the level of bodybuilders and in the level of organisation, number of the participating Countries. In some aspects „Amber Prix International“ was even higher that those in the West.           

 

VATICAN NAMES BODYBUILDING DISIDENTS.

In 2011 the Official Meeting of the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) Interantional Leaders was organized in Vatican to present the WFF-WBBF activities.

Listening about the bodybuilding activities during the years of prohibition of this sport in the Socialist Countries Vatican Congregat Perfect J. Em. JOZEF KARDINAL TOMKO was interested very much. The Congregat evaluated our efforts and named us „disidents of the Communist regime“.

Most impressive was the Vatican State evaluation of the positive work of the WFF-WBBF in developing total fitness and bodybuilding throughout the World. For this work done the Vatican Congregat Perfect J. Em. JOZEF KARDINAL TOMKO presented the Vatican Pontific Medals (Medaglia Ufficiale di Pontificato di Sua Santita Benedetto XVI) to the International President WFF-WBBF EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and the WFF-WBBF VIP Official Slovak STEFAN HRCKA (Headquarters State Vatican, Cita del Vaticano, March 29, 2011).

During the Official Visit to vatican the Vatican State Administrator PADRE PAOLO presented the the WFF-WBBF Officials the Vatican Administration Headquarters, the Closed Historic Treasure Archieves and the Storage Place of the historically valuable personal items of all Pontifics of Vatican State. Early morning at St. Peter‘s Basilica the President WFF-WBBF EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS participated at the unique personal Mess.

RESPECTFUL BLESSING FROM VATICAN
in 2012 the WFF-WBBF International Headquarters received a letter from the State Vatican.
Sending this Honourable Blessing Letter the Pontific BENEDETTO XVI-th once again positively evaluated the efforts of the WFF-WBBF International.

 

GOOD WORK NOTICED BY PROVOSLAV ORTODOX CHURCH.
The good and positive work done by the WFF-WBBF International was noticed by the Pravoslav Ortodox Church too.
In 2010 the IV-th International Convent of the Order of Temple (Ordo Supremus Militaris Templi Herosolymitani) was held in Coimbra (Portugal).
In recognition of the new ideas to unite all Christian Confessions Bishop ARCHIMANDRITE CHARALAMPY awarded EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS with the St. Nicholas the Wonderworker’s Silver-Gold Medal.
