WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

WHO AND HOW CREATED „U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING FEDERATION“.

We reached the year of 1986 working on the second book of the „World Body Building Encyclopedia“ („Pasaulio kultūrizmo enciklopedija“, «Энциклопедия всемирного культуризма»). We will publishe special report about who and how created the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ («Федерация культуризма С.С.С.Р.») in 1987. The new federation was recognized by the U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport (U.S.S.R. Goskomsport, Министерство спорта С.С.С.Р., Госкомспорт С.С.С.Р.). Until this everybody was satisfied with the „formal U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Fdederation“ (U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Comission, Всесоюзная комиссия атлетической гимнастики) which was set at the U.S.S.R. Weightlifting Federation (Федерация тяжёлой атлетики С.С.С.Р.). All was satisfied but not everybody. We will tell who and for what reasons and how after 12 years break brought VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин) back to bodybuilding in 1986.

1985. SOCIALIST BODYBUILDING NEWS.

1985 „AMBER PRIX INTERNATIONAL“

The prohibition of bodybuilding in the U.S.S.R. and Socialist countries lasted from 1973 until 1987. In 1987 in Kubenka (R.S.F.S.R.) was established the official „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ («Федерация культуризма С.С.С.Р.»). The prosecution of bodybuilding was so fierce in 1977. Then in 1978 DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS (Др. ЭДМУНДАС ДАУБАРАС) dared to write bodybuilding defending petition. He personally brought it to Moscow and presenetd to the Central Committee of the U.S.S.R. Communist Party (Центральный Комитет Коммунистической партии С.С.С.Р.) as well as to other highest U.S.S.R. political institutuins.  No one of Socialist bodybuilders supported DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS then. All were afrayed. After this the prosecution of bodybuilders became softer and softer every year.

In 1985 bodybuilders in the U.S.S.R. felt more freedom. Everybody felt comming „Perestrojka of Gorbachov“ («Прерстройка Горбачёва»).  Why for many years on the President of the I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) BEN WEIDER, the Presidents of N.A.B.B.A.  (National Amateur Body Building Association) OSCAR HEIDENSTAM and IVAN DUNBAR, the President of W.A.B.B.A. (World Amateur Body Building Association) SERGE NUBRET were in touch with „Klaipeda Bodybuilding Federagtion“ («Федерация культуризма г. Клайпеда») that was represented by DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS? The answer is – until 1987 „Klaipeda Bodybuilding federation“ was the only one official federation in the U.S.S.R.. All other bodybuilding units were not registered officially and worked more or less illegal. And DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was the only one among the U.S.S.R. bodybuilders who knew foreign languages. Through communication of the mentioned persons long lasting friendly relations were built.

In 1985 traditionally the most important bodybuilding comopetition in the USSR was the „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, «Янтарный приз», 1968 – 2023). That was the „Unofficial U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ («неофициальный Чемпионат С.С.С.Р. по культуризму»). At the 1985 „Amber Prix International“ participated 56 bodybuilders representing Lithuanian SSR, Latvian SSR, R.S.F.S.R., Belorussian SSR and Ukrainian SSR. The Category Winners at the 1985 „Amber Prix International“ were: juniors - OLEG ZUR (Олег Жур), VIKTORAS JUCYS, LINAS BEKESIUS (all from Lithuanian SSR) and among Main Categories - VINCAS DUBICKAS, VLADAS KAPCEVICIUS, ALGIRDAS IVANAUSKAS bei SAULIUS MISEVICIUS (again all from Lithuanian SSR). Over All Winners were: VIKTORAS JUCYS ir VINCAS DUBICKAS.

The second by the importance U.S.S.R. contest was held in Tallinn (Estonian SSR) „Georg Tenno Memorial“ («Мемориал Георга Тенно», 1971 - 1989). 47 bodybuilders from Lithuanian SSR, Latvian SSR, Estonian SSR, Ukrainian SSR, R.S.F.S.R., Belorussian SSR. The Category Winners were: Juniors - ROMAN BEREZOVYJ (Roman Berezovyj, Роман Березовый, Ukrainian SSR) ir RAIN KIMBER (Rein Kimber, Estonian SSR), Main Categories – Estonians INDREK OTSUS (Indrek Otsus), PAVEL KOSENKO (Павел Колсенко), AIN  PAAVO ir EDMUNDAS GUDAVICIUS (Lithuanian SSR). Over All Winners were: ROMAN BEREZOVYJ ir INDREK OTSUS. In 1985 it was the last time we saw INNAR MARDO (1946 – 2002) as International Contest organizer. After this he dissapeared until 1996.

City of Kaunas (Lithuanian SSR) organized two contests: traditional „Comsomol Cup“ („Komjaunimo taurė“, «Кубок комсомола») and the „Over All Winners Cup“ („Absoliučių čempionų taurė“, «Кубок абсолютных чемпионов»).  24 bodybuilders from P.N.R. (Polska Narodna Respublika), D.D.R. (Deutsches Demokratishe Republik, German Democratic republic), CSSR (Czechoslovakian SSR), R.S.F.S.R., Ukrainian SSR and Lithuanian SSR. That was first time when after 1978 bodybuilders of Czechoslovakian SSR came to the U.S.S.R.. Then in 1978 Secretary of the formal „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ (формальная «Федерация культуризма С.С.С.Р.») ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS due to his envy broke the common bodybuilding competitions in Lithuanian SSR and in Czechoslovakian SSR (read about it in our earlier articles). The Category Winners in 1985 were: PETER BUTZE (D.D.R.), ODRES ZEMBA (C.S.S.R.), VIKTORAS JUCYS (Lithuanian SSR) ir SERGEJ ZAICEV (Сергей Зайцев, R.S.F.S.R.).

Another one Contest in Kaunas was organized first time - the „Over All Winners Cup“. 12 bodybuilders of Estonian SSR, Lithuanian SSR, Belorussian SSR and R.S.F.S.R. took part at the event. The first three places were taken by SAULIUS MISEVICIUS, VINCAS DUBICKAS ir ALGIRDAS IVANAUSKAS (all from Lithuanian SSR).

In 1985 ARKADIJ KASANSKIJ (Аркадий Кашанский) went on organizing competitions in Charkov (Ukrainian SSR). This time 25 bodybuilders from Lithuanian SSR, R.S.F.S.R. and Ukrainian SSR took part at the competition. The Over All Winners were VIKTORAS JUCYS (Juniors) and VALERIJ LUTCAK (Валерий Лутцак, Main categories, Ukrainian SSR).

First time competition was organized in Kronstadt (Кронштадт, R.S.F.S.R.). The Over All Winner was BORIS RAJEV (Борис Раев) from R.S.F.S.R.. Also in 1985 local contests were held in Latvian SSR, Belorussian SSR and Estonian SSR.

In 1985 Czechoslovakian SSR held two traditional competitions ‚ „Sandow“ and „Trener“. The Category Winners of „Trener“ Contest were VINCAS DUBICKAS (Lithuanian SSR) and Czechoslovaks ANTON HOLIC, JAN CERNY, MILAN ROLINEC. Supported by the Sport Ministry of the Czechoslovakian SSR bodybuilders of this Country went on participating at the I.F.B.B. World and Europe Championships. They were the only ones from all Socialist World. Other Countries had strong Communist restrictions. In 1985 as well as in the previous 1984 European Champion‘s title went to MIROSLAV JASTERBSKI. By the way, former best U.S.S.R. bodybuilder OLEV ANNUS (Estonian SSR) emigrated to Finland. Then at the same 1985 I.F.B.B. Europe Championship he was second in his category.

1985 „AMBER PRIX INTERNATIONAL“

At the competition participated 47 bodybuilders from the Lithuanian SSR, Latvian SSR, Estonian SSR,  R.S.F.S.R., Belorussian SSR and Ukrainian SSR.

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

WHO AND HOW CREATED „U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING FEDERATION“.

We reached the year of 1986 working on the second book of the „World Body Building Encyclopedia“ („Pasaulio kultūrizmo enciklopedija“, «Энциклопедия всемирного культуризма»). We will publishe special report about who and how created the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ («Федерация культуризма С.С.С.Р.») in 1987. The new federation was recognized by the U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport (U.S.S.R. Goskomsport, Министерство спорта С.С.С.Р., Госкомспорт С.С.С.Р.). Until this everybody was satisfied with the „formal U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Fdederation“ (U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Comission, Всесоюзная комиссия атлетической гимнастики) which was set at the U.S.S.R. Weightlifting Federation (Федерация тяжёлой атлетики С.С.С.Р.). All was satisfied but not everybody. We will tell who and for what reasons and how after 12 years break brought VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин) back to bodybuilding in 1986.

1985. SOCIALIST BODYBUILDING NEWS.

1985. SOCIALIST BODYBUILDING NEWS.

The prohibition of bodybuilding in the U.S.S.R. and Socialist countries lasted from 1973 until 1987. In 1987 in Kubenka (R.S.F.S.R.) was established the official „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ («Федерация культуризма С.С.С.Р.»). The prosecution of bodybuilding was so fierce in 1977. Then in 1978 DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS (Др. ЭДМУНДАС ДАУБАРАС) dared to write bodybuilding defending petition. He personally brought it to Moscow and presenetd to the Central Committee of the U.S.S.R. Communist Party (Центральный Комитет Коммунистической партии С.С.С.Р.) as well as to other highest U.S.S.R. political institutuins.  No one of Socialist bodybuilders supported DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS then. All were afrayed. After this the prosecution of bodybuilders became softer and softer every year.

In 1985 bodybuilders in the U.S.S.R. felt more freedom. Everybody felt comming „Perestrojka of Gorbachov“ («Прерстройка Горбачёва»).  Why for many years on the President of the I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) BEN WEIDER, the Presidents of N.A.B.B.A.  (National Amateur Body Building Association) OSCAR HEIDENSTAM and IVAN DUNBAR, the President of W.A.B.B.A. (World Amateur Body Building Association) SERGE NUBRET were in touch with „Klaipeda Bodybuilding Federagtion“ («Федерация культуризма г. Клайпеда») that was represented by DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS? The answer is – until 1987 „Klaipeda Bodybuilding federation“ was the only one official federation in the U.S.S.R.. All other bodybuilding units were not registered officially and worked more or less illegal. And DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was the only one among the U.S.S.R. bodybuilders who knew foreign languages. Through communication of the mentioned persons long lasting friendly relations were built.

In 1985 traditionally the most important bodybuilding comopetition in the USSR was the „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, «Янтарный приз», 1968 – 2023). That was the „Unofficial U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ («неофициальный Чемпионат С.С.С.Р. по культуризму»). At the 1985 „Amber Prix International“ participated 56 bodybuilders representing Lithuanian SSR, Latvian SSR, R.S.F.S.R., Belorussian SSR and Ukrainian SSR. The Category Winners at the 1985 „Amber Prix International“ were: Juniors - OLEG ZUR (Олег Жур), VIKTORAS JUCYS, LINAS BEKESIUS (all from Lithuanian SSR) and among Main Categories - VINCAS DUBICKAS, VLADAS KAPCEVICIUS, ALGIRDAS IVANAUSKAS bei SAULIUS MISEVICIUS (again all from Lithuanian SSR). Over All Winners were: VIKTORAS JUCYS ir VINCAS DUBICKAS.
