WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA.

1987 INTERNATIONAL CONTEST „WHITE NIGHTS“.

Preparing the 2-d book of the „World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia“ (“Энциклопедия всемирного культуризма») we will publish some separate historical articles of that time (1973 – 1991).

To participate as a guest at the 1986 historic „Amber Prix International“ («Янтарный приз», “Gintarinis prizas”, 1968 – 2023, Klaipeda, Republic Lithuania) DSC. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS (Др. Эдмундас Даубарас) invited from Leningrad (Russian Federation) a former famous U.S.S.R. bodybuilder VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин). After loosing at the 1974 „Georg Tenno Memorial“ («Мемориал Георга Тенно», 1971 – 1989, Tallinn, Estinian SSR) VLADIMIR DUBININ stopped participating at competitions and did not appear at the International events. When the 1986 „Amber Prix International“ ended the VIP International bodybuilding persons came together to the appartments of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS in Klaipeda. The reason was to discuss the plans of the future development of bodybuilding sport in the U.S.S.R. and Socialist Countries and to start the new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuildin Federation“. At the meeting participated: a well known U.S.S.R. bodybuilder VLADIMIR DUBININ, since 1975 representing Russian Federation at the International events VLADIMIR SUBOV (Владимир Шубов, Moscow), 1985-1986 International contest organizer in Ukraine ARKADIJ KASANSKIJ (Аркадий Кашанский, Charkov, Ukrainian SSR) and the historic „Amber Prix“ organizer DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. At that time DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was the only one among the U.S.S.R. bodybuilding leadres who perfectly knew several foreign languages. Also foreign situation was discussed as DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was in touch with the I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) President BEN WEIDER, the  W.A.B.B.A. (World Amateur Body Building Association) President SERGE NUBRET (Serge Nubret) and the N.A.B.B.A. (National Amateur Body Building Association) President OSCAR HEIDENSTAM.  

Note: during the prohibition of bodybuilding in the U.S.S.R. and Socialist Countries the „Amber Prix International“ was the only one regularly organized International Bodybuilding competition in the Socalist World. Later the U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport (U.S.S.R. Goskomsport, Госкомспорт С.С.С.Р.) recognized the „Amber Prix“ as the „unofficial U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ (неофициальный чемпионат С.С.С.Р. по культуризму) and started presenting to the „Amber Prix“ Champions the title of the „U.S.S.R. Sport Master“ («Мастер спорта С.С.С.Р.»).

At the 1986 International meeting in Klaipeda participants discussed the starting of the new U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ («Федерация С.С.С.Р. по культуризму»). VLADIMIR DUBININ preposed the organize in Leningrad the International „White nights“ contest along with the „Amber Prix International“ and „Georg Tenno Memorial“.

„WHITE HIGHTS“.

In 1987 VLADIMIR DUBININ organized the International „White Nights“ competition as it was decided in Klaipeda. The contest was held at the still prestigeous in Russia  „Leningrad Palace Oktiabrskij“ («Дворец Октябрьский»). Bodubuilders of various U.S.S.R. Republics participated at the event. The Category Winners were NIKOLAJ MALYSEV (Николай Малышев,  Russian Federation), PAVEL KOSENKO (Павел Косенко, Estonian SSR), BORIS RAJEV (Борис Раев, Leningrad, Russian Federation), the pupil of Dr. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS bodybuilder VIKTORAS JUCYS (Викторас Юцис, Klaipeda, Lithuanian SSR).
