INTERNATIONAL FEDERATIONS

INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING SPORT.

WHAT WE ARE FACING TODAY?

MORE AND MORE NEW FEDERATIONS APPEAR. NOTHING CHANGES.

Every year the International Sport Society meets a number of new National and International Federations of various names and various kinds. Being very little public information available people and sportsmen have difficulties to understand what is what. Every of these federations  use to declare they are better than the other ones. But that are only declarations. For example NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Association, juridically it is a UK Public Club) was split three times during the last twenty years and the new federations appeared then. After these organizations also fighted inside and again were split. The process never ends and it gives nothing positive especially on for the Official Sport, for the recognition of bodybuilding...

For decades due to the false ways of development by the former International Sport Leaders today nobody looks towards bodybuilding seriously. Former beautiful kind of sport is turned in to business only. Manipulating with sportsmen, doping affairs, health and even lives of bodybuilders is a „normal everyday‘s“ case. Nothing is official and it seems like never stopping children‘s game. Bodybuilding lives in a closed inner circle, closed narrow society, which most people do not like or even hate. This is the image of bodybuilding today. And this image is very negative. At the moment only WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International works on the official recognition of our sport and of the bettering the public opinion about the bodybuilding sport.

WHICH FEDERATION IS BETTER?

We mentioned above that today there are lots of “International Bodybuilding federations”. To get the truth about these “federations”  is not so difficult -  just ask then what are their strategic aims? What they seek? It is not so difficult to see that nearly all so called “federations” are only some ambitious plans of some definite individuals... nothing more!

No one of these “federations” ever influenced our sport on official level. No one of them ever tried to do this. They represent various unreal histories. The reason is clear – they have no history at all and this is the reason they create the false ones! Every day they are playing their games and fooling people around. People do not think that that these are not real sport federations in fact! Most “federations” are private companies. Among them many have no proper registration by law as International Organizations. No one of them is recognized officially by any serious organization. In 1998 the I.O.C. (International Olympic Committee) refused to recognize the IFBB and Weider brothers Joe and Ben sold the IFBB  (International Federation of Body Builders) federation, their sport magazines and the “Olympia” contest. After this the situation of bodybuilding is unstable in the World. Sport became extremely commercial and official sport competitions turned to various  “festivals”, “weekends”, “nights”  and “classics”.

It seems that the WFF-WBBF  International is the only one to go on working on the ideas of Weider brothers. At least we make efforts to do this. No one cares for official recognized sport, but WFF-WBBF.

We have spoken many times about such “federations” before, about the nonsense they are creating in our sport and we will leave them in peace now as there is nothing to say more. Sport specialists understand that those federations play no role in the official bodybuilding sport on International level (see the Global Bodybuilding Site www.wff.lt , read historical articles and see unique documents on the main page and in the forum).

When we seriously speak about the real official sport, today we can mention only two International Organizations and that are the IFBB and the WFF-WBBF.

IFBB.

Though today  there are many “hot” IFBB  questions, such as of law, of finance, of book-keeping, of false democracy and of doping.  The private IFBB of RAFAEL SANTONJA even after splitting remains one of the most serious International units of bodybuilding sport.

Note:

In 2009 – IFBB split for the parts of the Spanish RAFAEL SANTONJA and the Singapore  PAUL CHUA. IN 2017 – IFBB split again for the parts of RAFAEL SANTONJA  and the USA NPC (National Physique Committee) of JIM MANION. All mentioned parts are in confrontation one with another today. All parts want to be on top one over another. Seeing this the historic IFBB creators and our real respected friends BEN  and JOE WEIDER brothers could have a heart attack.

WFF-WBBF.

Created in 1968 and celebrating it’s 52-d year of activities the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) works for the official sport of bodybuilding. Today the WFF-WBBF unites national organizations from 134 countries that represent all continents. Every year the WFF-WBBF organizes over 60 International events in various countries.

The WFF-WBBF received recognition by the Non Olympic Sports Committee, by a number of National Olympic Committees, by a number of Governments and Sport Ministries, by the ISU International Sports University (from 2017 ISU is  an Associated  Member of the UNESCO at the UN). Even the Vatican noticed WFF-WBBF International. During the official visit to the Headquarters of Vatican the  Roman Pope Benedictus XI-th award was presented to the International President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS with the Honorable Medal (Medaglia Ufficiale di Pontificato di Sua Santita Benedetto XVI)  and the Pope sent His blessing after the official meeting in Vatican (2011).

It seems today that only the WFF-WBBF International has aims and ideas how to develop bodybuilding on official level. Facing the new ambitious Global projects the WFF-WBBF takes real steps to guide our sport World Wide.

 WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

LEARN WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY!

Fifty years ago during the twenty years lasting prohibition and prosecution of bodybuilding in the USSR “Amber Prix International” was the only one Official International contest in Socialist World. Later USSR Ministry of Sport recognized “Amber Prix International” as official USSR Championship and presented “Sport Master” titles to “Amber Prix International” champions. In 2011 Vatican named us as “dissidents” and presented with the Roman Pope Medal.

WFF-WBBF MAGAZINES

NO OTHER INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING FEDERATION HAS IT‘S OWN MAGAZINE, BUT WFF-WBBF.

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

Today  the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  International unites 134 Country – Members and organizes every year nearly 60 anual Am and Pro International Events World Wide. Looking from the juridic point of view the WFF-WBBF International is no doubt the Real World Bodybuilding Leader.

WFF-WBBF International started issuing the International Magazines in various languages in 1989. The WFF-WBBF Magazines are spread free of charge during the most important International Sport Events World Wide and also in all Country-Members of the Federation. The Magazines can be found in many basic State Libraries. Once the German Leizig State Library addressed the WFF-WBBF International asking the Federation Magazines for the readers.

We would like to underline that no other known International Bodybuilding Sport Organization has it‘s own International Magazine, but the WFF-WBBF.

Not long ago the Sport Ministry Lithuania informed the WFF-WBBF International that the WFF-WBBF Magazines will be  Representing sport of Republic Lithuania Internationally.

ARNOLD SCWARZENEGGER RECOMMENDS

The first WFF-WBBF International Magazine (1989) was the famous methodical issue „Arnold Scwarzenegger Recommends“ („Арнольд Шварценеггер рекомендует»). At that time many East Europe Bodybuilders were short of the methodical knowlidge and that was the reason of the 2 000 000 sucessfull issues of the magazine. The „Arnold Scwarzenegger Recommends“ bacame the real „Cathekizmus“ for most bodybuilders of that time. It was spread in the countries of former USSR and East Europe. Several generations of today‘s bodybuilders grew up under these magazines.

WORKING PUBLISHING GROUP

The WFF-WBBF working publishing group is led by the Member International Journalist Association the International WFF-WBBF President DSc EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. For the period of the last 30 years the WFF-WBBF International published 37 International Magazines under various names in various languages.

GERMAN LEIPZIG STATE LIBRARY.

Our magazines You can find easy at any State Library of Lithuania. Several years ago German State Leipzig Library addressed the WFF-WBBF International asking to send them our magazines. So we did then.

WORLD BODYBUILDING  ENCYCLOPEDIA

Crowning it‘s 50 years of  International Bodybuilding activities, the WFF-WBBF)  works on the Unique Global International Bodybuilding Project -  the „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“ («Энциклопедия всемирного культуризма»). 

Until now nobody even tried to work on such a huge International Project. To be frank, only few people can do it. There were attempts to name some previous works as „Encyclopedia“ too, but that were not Encyclopedias of Bodybuilding Sport in real (for example, as Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s „Encyclopedia“ was written about himself in person mostly). In real every Encyclopedia covers much wider things.

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

SOCIALIST COUNTRIES BODYBUILDING LITERATURE.

Before the prohibition of bodybuilding in the middle of the sixties of the last century in all Socialist World Countries  the only one regular magazine about bodybuilding sport was Polish „Sport Dla Wszystkich“. At that time Lithuanians presented the basics of bodybuilding in the magazine „The Student“(„Moksleivis“).

Through the time of the prohibition of bodybuilding sport in the Socialist Countries nobody even dreamed about the bodybuilding literature. The exception was in Czechoslovakia Bratislava issued  „Trener“ Magazine and the German DDR (Deutsches Demokratik Republik)  Weight Lifting Magazine „The Weightlifter‘s Training“ ( „Schwer Atlet Training“) which started to publish some information about our sport. During this time DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  used to give articles and contest information for these Magazines. Also for BEN WEIDER‘S „Flex“ magazine. All magazines used to publishe the DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS given materials. First of all it was information from the World‘s Oldest Traditional Bodybuilding Contest, the only one anual International Bodybuilding Event in all Socialist Counties, the „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, „Янтарный приз», 1968-2017). The above mentioned Czechoslovakia „Trener“ Magazines were published by JOZEF MAZAK and later by MILAN PERDOCH.

International WFF-WBBF worked and still works on the documents and various materials of World‘s Bodybuilding History. The WFF-WBBF „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ Magazine started in English, Russian and Lithuanian languages in 1989. During this period of time the WFF-WBBF printed and spread through the World several millions copies of the Magazine. „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ is awailable at the National WFF-WBBF federations in all 134 Country - members of the WFF-WBBF International as well as at the most important World‘s International Bodybuilding and Fitness Events.
Main articles of the „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ Magazine were published in various Internet Pages, sport and public media, among them regularly in Spanish „Fitness Alive“ (Argentina, Magazine for South America and Spain), in German „Fitness News“ (Austria, Magazine for Germany, Austria and Switzerland), in English „Strenght and Health“ (UK, Magazine for England, Scotland and Ireland), in Russian „Zeleznyj Mir“ (Russia, for Russia and Post Soviet Russian Speaking Countries and etc..).
At the beginning a number of the WFF-WBBF Magazines were of methodical character. These Magazines were teaching the bodybuilders how to train from the primityve beginning to the Top Professional Level. Through decades the President WFF-WBBF International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS collected and translated materials and documents from different possible sources, analised, evaluated and systemized them and finally presented as methodical recommendations for the sportsmen. That were a number of popular International Seria Magazines under the titles like “ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER recommends”, “Training Programs of the World’s Best Bodybuilders”, “Bodybuilding Stars Recommend” etc..). Ending the 90-ties of the last century basing on these Magazines a number of new generations of bodybuilders were born and educated. Wishing to have these Magazines in their collections the libraries of a number of Countries addressed the International WFF-WBBF Headquarters (like German State Library of Leipzig, Germany).
Today the WFF-WBBF „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ („Sportinis fitnesas ir kultūrizmas“, „Спортивный фитнес и культуризм») magazine has only informative International character but this makes it to be even more important. The Magazine covers most important World‘s Bodybuilding and Fitness Events and it gives true situation of sport on Official International Level, sets the goals of the sport for the future. Nobody else in the World does it, but the WFF-WBBF.
