1986. SOCIALIST BODYBUILDING NEWS.

1986. BUILDING NEW „U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING FEDERATION“.

It comes more freedom in 1986. Bodybuilding is more popular. Many people are somehow connected and involved in bodybuilding. The time comes closer when in 1987 the 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.) the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federattion“ («Федерация культуризма С.С.С.Р.») is established.

The prohibition and prosecution of bodybuilding in socialist Countries became formal. 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.

During the last years it was VLADIMIR SUBOV (Владимир Шубов) who represented the R.S.F.S.R. at the International Contests in Lithuanian SSR and Estonian SSR. He was in constant contacts with the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“. To keep the contacts on he rented a room at the Headquarters of the Ministry.

In 1986 on the occasion of the 27-th „Congress of the U.S.S.R. Communist Party“ a big festival was organized in Moscow. Bodybuildires of the R.S.F.S.R. and Lithuanian SSR took part at the event.

In 1986 the creator and President of the W.A.B.B.A. (World Amateur Body Building Association)  SERGE NUBRET sent a letter to DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. Why to DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS? The reason - since 1977 until 1987 „Klaipeda Bodybuilding Federation“ was the only one officially recognized bodybuilding federation in the U.S.S.R.. All other units had no status of a „federation“ and they were not recognized. The letter included huge correspondence of SERGE NUBRET and the President of the I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) BEN WEIDER. SERGE NUBRET asked to publish the materials. But DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS did not do it until now as the materials included many extremelly personal intimate matters of BEN WEIDER.

1986. BUILDING NEW „U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING FEDERATION“.

After the 1986 „Amber Prix International“ in Klaipeda (Lithuanian SSR) DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS collected in his appartments most influental bodybuilding persons of the R.S.F.S.R.. That were VLADIMIR SUBOV (Moscow) and VLADIMIR DUBININ (Leningrad). In 1986 DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS after twelve years pause brought back to sport VLADIMIR DUBININ (Leningrad). Being unsatisfied with the work of the formal U.S.S.R. bodybuilding leaders DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS spoke to all personts about the necessity to build a new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wanted a federation which is recognized by the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“ and he wanted bodybuilding being recognized as the official sport too (detailed articles in various languages are on International Site www.wff.lt ).

1986. FIRST IN SPORT HISTORY OFFICIAL BODYBUILDING SEMINAR.

Traditionally the „Amber Prix International“ was the most important U.S.S.R. bodybuilding Contest. Since 1978 until 1987 it was an „unofficial U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championahip“ («Неофициальный чемпионат С.С.С.Р. по культуризму»). The „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“ recognized this fact. In 1986 delegates of the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“ came to visit the „Amber Prix International“ in Klaipeda. There were several representatives of the „U.S.S.R. Weightlifting Federation“ among them. During the competition they organized the first in the official sport history bodybuilding seminar. It was held in a cinema of Klaipeda. After the seminar all attendants were examened and after this they received the „U.S.S.R. Trainer‘s Certificates“ («Удостоверение тренера С.С.С.Р.»).

1986. INTERNATIONAL CONTESTS OF SOCIALIST WORLD.

At the 1986 „Amber Prix International“ participated 87 bodybuilders from Lithuanian SSR, Latvian SSR, Estonian SSR, R.S.F.S.R., Belorussian SSR and Ukrainian SSR. The Category Winners were: Juniors – OLEG ZUR (Олег Жур, Lithuanian SSR), BORIS VELIKOIVANENKO (Борис Великоиваненко, R.S.F.S.R.), SERGEJ SAMOTIN (Сергей Самотин, both R.S.F.S.R.). Winners of the main categories were: RAIMUNDAS PETRAITIS (Lithuanian SSR), VALERIJ BOGDANOVIC, GEORGIJ JUDENKOV (Валерий Богданович, Георгий Юденков, both Belorussian SSR) and ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS (Lithuanian SSR). The Over All Winners were: OLEG ZUR and ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS. 

Next by the rank of the U.S.S.R. bodybuilding Competitons was the Estonian SSR „Georg Tenno Memorial“ («Мемориал Георга Еенно», 1971 – 1989). In 1986 it was not organized as INNAR MARDO left bodybuilding activities.

During the last several years ARKADIJ KASANSKIJ used to organize Competitions in Charkov City (Ukrainian SSR). In 1986 he held two Contests. At the first of them participated 98 bodybuilders from Ukrainian SSR, Lithuanian SSR, latvian SSR and R.S.F.S.R.. Over all Winners were OLEG SAVIC (Олег Савич, R.S.F.S.R.,  juniors) and ALEKSANDR VASIN (Александр Васин R.S.F.S.R., Main Categories). Another Contest was the second „Cup of Over All Winners“ («2-ой Кубок абсолютных чемпионов»). There were 9 participants from Lithuanian SSR, Estonian SSR, latvian SSR, R.S.F.S.R. and Ukrainian SSR. The Winners were: VINCAS DUBICKAS (First Place, Lithuanian SSR), PAVEL KOSENKO (Павел Косенко, Second Place, Estonian SSR), ALGIRDAS IVANAUSKAS (Thgird Place, Lithuanian SSR).

Lithuanian SSR City of Kaunas went on organizing anual „Comsomol Cup“ («Кубок комсомола», „Komjaunimo taurė“). 26 bodybuilders from Belorussian SSR, Lithuanian SSR, Ukrainian SSR, R.S.F.S.R. and D.D.R. (Deutche Demokratishe Republik) took part at the event. Kaunas Comsomol leadres helped U.S.S.R. bodybuilders to invite D.D.R. athletes. The Category Winners were: Lithuanians VINCAS DUBICKAS, PAVEL KOSENKO, ALGIRDAS IVANAUSKAS, OLEGAS MASLOVAS (Олег Маслов, R.T.F.S.R.).

Also in 1986 several local Competitions were held in Leningrad and Liubercy (both R.S.F.S.R.), in the Belorussian SSR and in the Lithuanian SSR.

Speaking about the other Socialist Countries we should mention „Trener“ contest in the Czechoslovakian SSR. The Category Winners were: Czechoslovaks PETR DUDAREC, JAN KUS, JAN CERNY and PETER MOLNAR (Hungarian SSR).

Another competition was held in Neubranderburg (D.D.R.). Category Winners were: BERNARD SEIBE  (D.D.R.) and Czechoslovaks LIBOR MINARIK, PAVOL JABLONICKY, JAN CERNY. The Over All Winner was LIBOR MINARIK.

INTERNATIONAL PERSON.

2023_gerstl_2m.jpg

WHO IN U.S.S.R. COULD THINK ON INTERNATIONAL LEVEL?

ROLE OF PERSONALITY IN LIFE AND SPORT.

Everyone‘s personality depends on many items. One of them is – basing on which position a personality analizes all happenings. We mean bodybuilders, of course. Do you think of this as a sportsman, as a trainer or organizer or you think as an International Leader? Specialists of our sport scrutinize the same documents and the same basics but everybody of them evaluate the same items on a different way. Then we may look if this specialist is of a local level or he represents the International one. The specialist must get himself above the happenings of his time and he must look on everything like a flying bird high in the sky. Otherwise he can not understand waht is going on.

In the U.S.S.R. there were only few personalities who could think wide in the very beginning of bodybuilding. The representatives of various regions of the U.S.S.R. mostly were thinking in a narrow way. For example, Tiumen gym trainer JEVGENIJ KOLTUN (Евгений Колтун, R.S.F.S.R.) always represented a gym level and nothing more. The same was with a Kaliningrad trainer JURIJ SMOLIAKOV (Юрий Смоляков, R.S.F.S.R.) and with a Severodvinsk trainer the U.S.S.R. Champion ALEKSANDR LEMECHOV (Александр Лемехов, R.S.F.S.R.). The same was with a Leningrad gym trainer VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин, R.S.F.S.R.). A representative of Riga (Latvian SSR) FELIKS SAJKOVSKIJ (Феликс Сайковский) and nearly all representatives of the Lithuanian SSR were on the same local level of understanding. There were no more active bodybuilding organizers in the U.S.S.R. at that time but only those we mentioned only. The exception could be the General Secretary of the formal „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“  («Федерация культуризма С.С.С.Р.») ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS (Романас Калинаускас). How we can understand this „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ when bodybuilding in the U.S.S.R. is prohibited? It had totally no power. But unfortunatelly all activities of ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS were done through intrigues and blackmailing of his sport friends to the Communist political powers. Knowing no foreign languages ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS was separated from the World and could not understand the International process. Another exceptional person was INNAR MARDO (Иннар Мардо, 1946 – 2002, Tallinn, Estonian SSR). He also did not know any foreign language and worked only in Estonia. Even to do anything on the U.S.S.R. level he had no interest. But on regular basis organized by INNAR MARDO „Georg Tenno Memorial“ («Мемориал Георга Тенно», 1971 – 1989, Tallinn, Estonian SSR) contests gave him a huge prestige and respect of others. One more exception was DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. During the period of bodybuilding prohibition he organized illegal „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, «Янтарный приз», 1968 – 2023, Klaipeda, Lithuanian SSR) contests in 1974, 1975, 1976 and in 1977. Wishing to defend bodybuilding sport DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS for several years was in correspondence with the Ministry of Sport of the U.S.S.R. („U.S.S.R. Goskomsport“, Госкомспорт С.С.С.Р.). Finally received from the U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport a negatyve answer DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wrote a bodybuilding defending petition and personally brought it to Moscow. He presented the petition to the highest U.S.S.R. political powers:  to the Central Committee of the U.S.S.R. Communist Party  (Центральный Комитет Коммунистической партии С.С.С.Р.), to the U.S.S.R. Supreme Council (Верховный Совет С.С.С.Р.) and to the U.S.S.R. Ministry Council (Совет Министров С.С.С.Р.) and to the U.S.S.R. cental political newspapers  „Pravda“ («Правда») and „Izvestija“ («Известия»). In 1978 due to the petition of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS the U.S.S.R. political powers gave him permition to organize „Amber Prix International“ in Klaipeda (Lithuanian SSR).

Leaders do not like a stable life. A Leader of any kind has courage and resposibility. Leaders always seek the result end never doubt if they will not succeed. At the same time the majority does nothing. They sit  in silence. So who was the bodybuilding Leader in the U.S.S.R.? The very similar to DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS life was of his friends in sport: the President I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) BEN WEIDER, also the similar way of life was of the President N.A.B.B.A. (National Amateur Body Building Association) OSCAR HEIDENSTAM and W.A.B.B.A. (World Amateur Body Building Association) President SERGE NUBRET. The same similar way was of the General Secretary F.I.H.C. (Federation Internationale Halterophile et Culturiste) International OSCAR STATE.

Not knowing foreign languages narrowed possibilities of INNAR MARDO, but DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS assisted and helped him always. ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS did not know any foreign language and he always worked to be close to the U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport. To say more he did his best to be close to the U.S.S.R. Weightlifting Federation (Федерация тяжёлой атлетики С.С.С.Р.). That were his top items for respect and loyality. But what he could get out of this when bodybuilding was prohibited in the U.S.S.R.? Just nothing.

While studying English and German philology at the Vilnius State University DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS did several attempts to unite gyms of Vilnius City. Nobody else never tried to do this. Anyway bodybuilding was prohibited in the U.S.S.R. and bodybuilders were afraid to do anything.

It is easy to speak when the work is done and everything goes smoothly. But at the moment to fight agaist bodybuilding prohibition no one supported DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. No one. Today being already old many former U.S.S.R. bodybuilding organizers and bodybuilders try to „be Facebook friends“ of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. Fine. But where they were at the hard times of risky fighting?

During the fifty years of his bodybuilding activities there was a number of „deputies“ and assistants of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. Many wanted to take the place of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and to go on doing the same. No one succeeded.

Many disliked the stormy activities of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. Especially when he succeeded in his work. And he did. Having no wish to get into the intrigues of such people DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS got into the Vilnius State University in 1979 again. This time DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS studied law after he received the speciality of the phylology before. And again he succeeded. The same happened with INNAR MARDO. He was pressed by the people of envy and hate to leave his work and positions after the intriques in the formal Bodybuilding Federattion of the Estonian SSR. INNAR MARDO did not succeed to come back in full power again. There were several attemps but he was never back to the former normal situation. Hate and envy of his bodybuilding collegues ruined his life in sport. This information is based on the letters of INNAR MARDO to DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS.

Klaipeda bodybuilding was always a „Separate Republic“. And still is. It was in Lithuania, in the U.S.S.R. and Internationally now. It was based on the social and juridical status, on the International level - remember the World Bodybuilding Leaders whom we have mentioned above. International President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS is involved in the work of a number of International organizations which are collaborating with U.N. (United Nations) and U.N.S.E.C.O. (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization). Who else was in the same position? The road was long. Much work and  studies were needed.

Due to his active International work DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS meets many World known persons.

In 2010 in Portugal during the Congress of the International Order of Templars (O.S.M.T.H., Ordo Supremus Militari Templi Herosolimitani) for the original ideas to unite World Religions DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS by Greek ARCHIMANDRIT CHARALAMPIJ was awarded with the „St. Nicholas the Wonderworker Silver-Gold Medal“.

In 2011 the Official Visit of the President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was organized to Vatican. Listening about the Bodybuilding activities during the years of prohibition of this sport in the Socialist Countries the Vatican Congregat Perfect Cardinal J. Em. JOZEF KARDINAL TOMKO (Кардинал Иозеф Томко) was interested very much. Very big interest was shown to the bodybuilding defending petition of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and the victory that was achieved due to this. J. Em. JOZEF KARDINAL TOMKO positively evaluated our efforts to fight for the Bodybuilding Sport recognition and at once he named DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS as the „disident of the Communist Regime“. For this work done the Vatican Congregat Perfect Cardinal J. Em. JOZEF KARDINAL TOMKO presented the Original Vatican Pontific Medal (Medaglia Ufficiale di Pontificato di Sua Santita Benedetto XVI) to the International President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Federation EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS (Headquarters State Vatican, Cita del Vaticano, March 29, 2011).

During the last decades DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS had meetings and spoke about various International questions with the President Parliament Austria Professor ALFRED GERSTL (Президент Парламента Австрии профессор Альфред Герстл), the Prime Minister of the Republic Slovakia VLADIMIR MECIAR (премьер министр Словакии Владимир Мечиар), the Prime Minister of the Republic Slovakia ROBERT FICO (премьер министр Словакии Роберт Фицо), President Parliament Republic Slovakia JAN FIGEL (президент Парламента Словакии Ян Фигель), President Parliament Republic Lithuania ARUNAS VALINSKAS (президент Парламента Литвы Арунас Валинскас), Prime Minister Republic Lithuania GEDIMINAS KIRKILAS (премьер министр Литвы Гедиминас Киркилас), Prime Minister Republic Lithuania ALGIRDAS BUTKEVICIUS (премьер министр Литвы Альгирдас Буткявичус) and other High State officials of various Asia and Europe Countries.

Crowning the fifty years of bodybuilding activities of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS Russia journalists call him “The Father of Russia Bodybuilding” («Отец российского культуризма»).

In 2015 at the International contest in front of a number of Members of the Parliament Republic Lithuania the representative of the Government Republic Lithuania ANTANAS VINKUS (Антанас Винкус) named DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS the „Lithuania Embassador for the World“ («Амбассадор Литвы в мире»). Then National Teams of America, Asia, Africa and Europe took part at this event.

1986. SOCIALIST BODYBUILDING NEWS.

WHO AND HOW INFLUENCED CREATION OF „U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING FEDERATION“.

It comes more freedom in 1986. Bodybuilding is more popular. More and more people were somehow connected and involved in bodybuilding. The time comes closer when in 1987 the 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.) the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federattion“ («Федерация культуризма С.С.С.Р.») was created.

The prohibition and prosecution of bodybuilding in Socialist Countries became formal. 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 institutions.  No one of Socialist bodybuilders supported DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS then. All were afrayed to be prosecuted. After the petition the prosecution of bodybuilders became softer and softer every year.

Until 1986 during the last years it was VLADIMIR SUBOV (Владимир Шубов) who represented the R.S.F.S.R. at the International Contests in the Lithuanian SSR and in the Estonian SSR. He was in constant contacts with the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“. To keep the contacts on VLADIMIR SUBOV rented a room at the Headquarters of the Ministry.

WHO AND HOW INFLUENCED CREATION OF „U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING FEDERATION“.

How appeared the idea to create the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ which will be recognized by the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“? Why the contemporary President of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS made huge efforts to return back to sport a former U.S.S.R. bodybuilding star VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин)? Finally DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS brought him to the 1986 „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, «Янтарный приз», 1968 – 2023) in Klaipeda (Lithuanian SSR). To the 1986 „Amber Prix International“ VLADIMIR DUBININ came as a representative of Leningrad (now St. Petersburg, Ленинград) City as the R.S.F.S.R. was already represented by the above mentioned VLADIMIR SUBOV.

This way after twelve years beak VLADIMIR DUBININ was back to the active sport. In the seventies of the last Century VLADINIR DUBININ was a huge impressive bodybuilder. In contests he lost only to OLEV ANNUS (Estonian SSR) and PRANAS MURAUSKAS (Lithuanian SSR). He could fight with the athletes like ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER if he could leave the U.S.S.R. to a Contest in the „Western World“ then. But borders of the U.S.S.R. were closed by the „Iron Wall“.

The fact is – until the 1986 meeting at the appartments of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS nobody in the U.S.S.R. had any idea about the new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“. Everybody was satisfied with the „formal U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ (Comission, «Visasąjunginės atletinės gimnastikos komisijos») which was since 1979 a part of the „U.S.S.R. Weightlifting Federation («Федерация тяжёлой атлетики С.С.С.Р.»).

Why DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was so much unsatisfied with the above mentioned „formal U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“? This „formal federation“ started working in 1979 right after when in 1978 DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS brought his bodybuilding defending petition to the Central Committee of the U.S.S.R. Communist Party. The „formal federation“ was run by the Chairman a R.S.F.S.R. Weightlifter ROMAN MOROZ (Роман Мороз). The Secretary of it was ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS. ROMAN MOROZ was not interested in bodybuilding at all so the governing of the „formal federation“ was done by ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS. Also several loyal to ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS persons were included in the organization.

In 1983 after graduating his second University by the speciality of Law DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wanted more. According the U.S.S.R. law he aimed to bodybuilding recognition as sport. The example to follow was evident -  it was the «National Bodybuilding Federation of the Czechoslovakian SSR». C.S.S.R. Government supported bodybuilders and since 1975 they had possibilities to participate at the International Competitions in the „Western Countries“. Since 1975 DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS had personal relations with the Chairmen of the C.S.S.R. Bodybulding Federation. He used to visit the C.S.S.R. Ministry of Spiort (C.S.T.V., Československy Svaz Telesne Vychvy“) several times.

Let us step aside a bit and speak about the International Law in sports. Even today nearly all International Bodybuilding Federations are in problems with law, with registration of federations. After analyzing the documents of most International Federations DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS can state that the N.A.B.B.A. (National Amateur Body Building Association), the W.A.B.B.A. (World Amateur Body Building Association), the German Part of the W.F.F. (W.F.F. – International, World Fitness Federation) were and still are in problems with the International law. This was the reason that in 1999 DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS made official registration of the W.F.F. – International and in 2005 the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International. Do You want to know EVERYTHING“ about any federation? Answer just one question – what are aims and where goes this federation. Then You will see poorness and deadly ambitions of those federations. (see detailed articles on the International Site www.wff.lt ).

Being back to the „formal U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ we would like to remind several facts. For two years DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS together with the Chairman of the

„C.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ VOJTECH FIALA was working on a common Project. The Project covered two International Contests between the National Bodybuilding Teams of the U.S.S.R. and the C.S.S.R.. One Contest was to be held in Klaipeda (Lithuanian SSR) and another in the C.S.S.R.. When ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS learned that the idea and the work  done by DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS he ruinerd the plans. Also basing on his ego he ruined and tried to ruin sport careers of famous bodybuilders ALBERTAS REMEIKA, JURIJ GUSEV (Юрий Гусев), ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS, SAULIUS MISEVICIUS, and in 1987 again SAULIUS MISEVICIUS and VIKTORAS JUCYS. ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS learned that OLEV ANNUS (Estonian SSR) wants to leave the U.S.S.R. and emigrante to Finland. For political reasons at the 1981 „Amber Prix International“ ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS forced the judges not to give Over All Winners title to OLEV ANNUS. This way the Winner was SAULIUS MISEVICIUS.

After the 1986 „Amber prix International“ to develop idea of a new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS invited most important representatives of the R.S.F.S.R VLADIMIR SUBOV and VLADIMIR DUBININ to his appartments. Also an active Contest organizer ARKADIJ KASANSKIJ (Аркадий Кашанский, Ukrainian SSR) was invited too. VLADIMIR SUBOV took his Russian bodybuilder GEORGIJ MOSALIOV (Георгий Мосалёв) to the meeting as well. Only a close friend of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS the most important bodybuilding organizer from Tallinn (Estonian SSR) INNAR MARDO (Иннар Мардо, 1946 – 2002) was missing. In 1986 for several years he stopped his activities in sport.

Building the new federation the main techical work had to be done by the officials of the R.S.F.S.R.. The idea of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was to use their connections in the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“ and in the „U.S.S.R. Weightlifting Federation“. They lived in the R.S.F.S.R. and it was more easy for them to reach Moscow. They did it through the same mentioned above ROMAN MOROZ and through VASILIJ CAIKOVSKIJ (Василий Чайковский). VASILIJ CAIKOVSKIJ was working at the „Leningrad Institute of Sctientific Sport Resurches “ (Л.Н.И.И.Ф.К., Ленинградском научно исследовательском институте физической культуры). He appeared in bodybuilding in 1986.

So DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS told about his idea of a new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ to VLADIMIR SUBOV and VLADIMIR DUBININ. This was some kind of shock to them but they agreed to start working. The 1986 „Amber Prix International“ ended with a banquet after which most influental U.S.S.R. bodybuilding persons gathered at DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS appartments. All of them discussed about the future of the U.S.S.R. bodybuilding, about the coming recognition of bodybuilding sport in the U.S.S.R. and about the nearest steps organizing new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“. They spoke about the bodybuilding situation in the World and in the Socialist Countries.

The participants of the meeting decided about the next meeting. It had to be during the coming 1987 „White Nights“ («Белые ночи») Contest in Leningrad. The last steps towards the new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ had to be done there.

Right after the meeting in Klaipeda the mentioned R.S.F.S.R. officials started their work. During 1986 and 1987 there were emotional discussions about the matter in the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“ and in the „U.S.S.R. Weightlifting Federation“ as well.

After the 1986 „Amber Prix International“ and before the coming 1978 „White Nights“ Competitions DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS with his family as a special guest two times was invited to Leningrad by VLADIMIR DUBININ. The important U.S.S.R. bodybuilding questions were spoken over and definite plans were set  up.

1985 "AMBER PRIX INTERNATIONAL".

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.

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.
