World Fitness Federation (WFF-International) - DSc. Edmundas Daubaras - 08-25-2005

WFF (World Fitness Federation)

THE BEGINNING
The 20-th century was the period when the World was divided in to two parts: capitalist and Communist, in to “East” and “West”. The “Iron Wall” separated both parts giving no possibility to communicate, giving no possibility to exchange the information. Each side knew very little about another.
The Western World developed bodybuilding, the Eastern World developed fitness (then it was called “athletic gymnastic”). Each of them went their own way.
Ideas propagated by the WFF today started with the first “Amber Prix International” Championships (1967).

SOCIALIST WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
From 1959 until the middle of eighties only IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) was organizing World Championships. In 1967 having no possibility to participate in the IFBB World Championships socialist fitness enthusiasts decided to organize their own World Championships. They named the event “Amber Prix International” as there was no chance to call it “World Championship”. Soviet ideology had a very strict point of view on such things.
In reality only the Republics of the Soviet Union (15 Countries) and World Socialist Countries participated in the “Amber Prix”.
Many times the organizers invited the representatives of the “West” to participate in the Eastern “Amber Prix International”, but they had no possibilities to cross the Soviet Border of iron.
At that time the leaders of the “West” bodybuilding were IFBB and NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Association). Both IFBB and NABBA organized contests no better than the ones organized in the Socialist World. Even now many of us remember the numerous “Amber Prix” categories representing a lot of countries. 1989 “Amber Prix International” collected nearly two hundred athletes representing 51 team! There were over 50 competitors in the Categories! Even today many of International Sport Organizations collect only 10 - 15 countries in their World or Continental Championships.
The first “Amber Prix International” was organized in 1968 (Palanga, Lithuania).
From this year the best athletes of the “East” participated in the event regularly.
In the seventies bodybuilding was prohibited in the Soviet Countries. The contests were stopped for some years, especially big ones.
Nevertheless of the prohibition of bodybuilding in 1977 Edmundas Daubaras had courage to go on organizing the annual “Amber Prix International”. For many years “Amber Prix” remained the only one big regular contest of the “East”.
There was a constant working International Executive Committee around the “Amber Prix International”. The results of the contest were published in newspapers and magazines. This made the “Amber Prix International” even more popular. Occasionally Weider brothers published “Amber Prix” materials in their magazines as well.

INTERNATIONAL WORK
From 1973 Socialist World starts to communicate more and more. International Executive Committee of the the “Amber Prix International” worked together with Czechoslovakia (Ludek Nosek, Milan Perdoch, Vijtech Fiala, Ivan Mach, Josef Mazak, Stanislav Pesat), Poland (Ludowe Zespoly Sportowe), East Germany (Peter Butze, Otto Rudiger, Peter Bajerowich, Winfred Basta, Jurgen Madaj), Hungary (Ferenc Fekete, Istvan Bitter, Vytautas Grinius), Romania (Vladislav Scekely, Vasile Belbe), Jugoslavia and Bulgaria (Atanas Dzanajev, Zdravko Jordanov Petrov).

STRUCTURE
International Executive Committee of the the “Amber Prix International” performed a constant and serious work. Juridicaly it was the unregistered International Sport Organization (in the Soviet times there were no chance to register an International Unit). There are many such unregistered and unofficial International Sport Organizations even today.
Going on with the annual “Amber Prix International” Eastern Countries were in touch with the “West”. During many years Edmundas Daubaras communicated with the leaders of the three basic International Bodybuilding Organizations: Ben Weider (IFBB President), Oscar Heidenstam (NABBA President), Serge Nubret (WABBA President). All of them were interested in what is going on in the Eastern Countries as well as the “East” was interested in what is going on in the Western World. The long lasting lack of information and common interest was one of the main reasons to start the new era of the common work.

NABBA and WABBA
Again the pioneer of the relations with the “West” was Edmundas Daubaras. Just before the end of the Soviet Union in 1991 under the leadership of Edmundas Daubaras Lithuania joined NABBA (Epinal, France). Then Natalija Murnikoviene (later two times IFBB Miss Olympia third place winner) and Rolandas Bucinskas (later heavyweight IFBB Europe Champion) became NABBA Europe Champions.
At the same time in 1991 Lithuanian Rimontas Mazionis participated in WABBA European Championship.
Soon after Lithuania many other Socialist Countries joined different International Sport Organizations.
For many years used to the serious official work the former Socialist Countries found in NABBA and WABBA unexpected things. The most important and negative was: NABBA and WABBA had no juridical registration and many years worked unofficially. Ben Weider (former IFBB President) used to call such so called International Organizations “a group of friends”.

WFF (World Fitness Federation)
Together with Edmundas Daubaras in 1991 Klaus Hoffmann (representing Germany)
joined NABBA.
Both NABBA Presidents had close point of view on fithess: Edmundas Daubaras, representing the “Amber Prix International” and Klaus Hoffmann, representing “Miss Figure World Grand Prix” contests. In 1995 the great common extraordinary project of developing fitness worldwide started – the World Fitness Championships. The fitness project was named “World Fitness Federation” (WFF).
The first great common international event was organized in 1998 (Palanga, Lithuania). 1998 WFF World Championship was sponsored by the Government of Lithuania. It collected nearly two hundred athletes from twenty on country. The Championship showed the wide possibilities in developing sport of fitness. At the same time some negative things were evident.
Only legal activities in post Soviet Countries are possible. Otherwise the organization can not be supported by Governments, reviewed by press and television, be sponsored by great firms. That was the difference from the “Western” sport organizations. WFF had to be juridicaly registered.
Klaus Hoffmann had no interest in the official registration of WFF. The registration of WFF-International was performed by the “Amber Prix” International Executive Committee with Klaus Hoffmann being “out of the game”.

1998 WFF-INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS
1998 WFF-International Congress was organized by the “Amber Prix” International Executive Committee. The main question was to prepare the WFF juridical registration.

1999 WFF-INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS
1999 WFF-International Congress was held in Daugavpils (Latvia). The Congress approved the Constitution of WFF-International, the Judging Rules, elected the Executive Committee.
Edmundas Daubaras (Lithuania) was elected to the position of the president of WFF-International, Oleg Burinskij (Latvia) was elected to the position of the Vice President of WFF-International.

TWO WFF
Finally WFF-International was juridicaly registered and two International WFF organizations appeared: one official (President Edmundas Daubaras) and another so called “WFF Southern Hemisphere” (president Klaus Hoffmann). In order to coordinate the common work Edmundas Daubaras was elected to the position of the Vice President of “WFF Southern Hemisphere”.

2000 WFF-INTERANTIONAL CONGRESS
For some time both WFF organizations worked together and cooperated.
2000 WFF-International Congress decided:
- The official WFF-International organizes annual WFF Europe Championship and “Amber Prix International”
- The “WFF Southern Hemisphere” organizes WFF World Championship and WFF ”Universe” Contest

2003 WFF-INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS
There was a common International Congress of the official WFF-International and the “WFF Southern Hemisphere” in 2003 (Germany). Klaus Hoffmann informed that he lost his sponsors and that “WFF Southern Hemisphere” can not organize WFF World Championship any more. The WFF “Universe” contest will be the only one of the “WFF Southern Hemisphere”.
Starting from 2003 the official WFF-International was to organize WFF World and Europe Championship as well as WFF ““Amber Prix International”.
The Congress decided to set the WFF-International Professional Division. From 2004 annual WFF Pro World Championships will be organized. Andrej Basov (Russia) was elected to the position of the WFF Pro Director.

2005 WFF-INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS
2005 WFF-International Congress was held in Palanga (Lithuania). The Congress appointed the WFF-International official representatives:
- Mr. Biagio Filizola for the Mediteranian Countries
- Mr. Tero Lintunen for the Scandinavian Countries
- Mr.Ladislav Sandor for the Central Europe
- Mr.Daniel Olawale for the African Countries
- Mr. Claudio Vidal for the American Countries

FUTURE VISSION
There is evident difference between WFF-International and other International Bodybuilding and Fitness Organizations. WFF has clear future vision:
- 2005 WFF Amateur World Championship (Vilnius, Lithuania)
- 2005 WFF Pro World Championship (Moscow, Russia)
- 2006 WFF Amateur Europe Championship (Riga, Latvia)
- 2006 WFF Pro Europe Championship (Russia)
- 2006 WFF Amateur World Championship (Moscow, Russia)
- 2006 WFF Pro World Championship (Vilnius, Lithuania)
- 2006 WFF Amateur “Universe” contest (Italy)
- 2006 WFF Pro “Universe” (Russia)

YES, CZECH ATHLETES PARTICIPATE IN MANY WFF EVENTS.
IFBB WAS RULING IN CZECH REPUBLIC FROM 1975. GOVERNMENT OF CZECH REPUBLIC WAS SPONSORING IFBB QUITE SUFFICIENTLY.
BUT NOW WHEN INTERNATIONAL IFBB GOES DOWN RAPIDLY CZECH BODYBUILDERS STARTED PARTICIPATING IN OTHER FEDERATIONS VERY OFTEN.
THIS YEAR A PREVIOUS IFBB TOP ATHLETE FROM CZECHIA WAS SECOND AT NABBA-2 EUROPE IN GERMANY.
