WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA.
1984 SOCIALIST BODYBUILDING NEWS.
In 1984 if we compare with 1983 bodybuilding in Socialist countries was really different. There were comparitivelly many contests in the U.S.S.R. as well as in other Socualist countries. We could say the Socialist polititians let bodybuilding live and the prohibition became only formal. But there were definite reasons for this.
We would remind that in 1973 bodybuilding in Socialist Countries was prohibited and everyone was afraid to do something positive for bodybuilding. It was extremelly important that in 1978 DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wrote petition to defend bodybuilding. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS personally brought the petition to Moscow and presented it to the U.S.S.R. highest political institutions including the Central Committee of the U.S.S.R. Communist party (Центральный Комитет К.П.С.С. С.С.С.Р.). Due to this the polititians permited to organize in Klaipeda (Lithuanian SSR) traditional „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, «Янтарный приз», 1968 – 2023). 1978 „Amber Prix International“ was the first public competition after the prohibition. This contest for ten years became the „unofficial U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ («неофициальный чемпионат С.С.С.Р. по культуризму»). Later U.S.S.R. Ministry of sport (Министерство спорта С.С.С.Р.) confirmed this and started to present for „Amber Prix International“ Champions titles of „U.S.S.R. Sport Master“ „Мастер спорта С.С.С.Р.»). Best U.S.S.R. bodybuilders used to participate at the „Amber Prix International“ every year. Year by year bodybuilding contests were held in other places too. This way step by step other U.S.S.R. countries and places started pointing to their local polititions towards Klaipeda competitions and this way organizing public contests too. The winners of 1984 „Amber Prix International“ were Lithuanians VIKTORAS JUCYS (Juniors) and VINCAS DUBICKAS (Main Categories).
Next by the importance after the „Amber Prix International“ was „Georg Tenno Memorial“ («Мемориал Георга Тенно», Tallinn, Estonian SSR, 1971 – 1989). The Over All Winners of the 1984 „Georg Tenno Memorial“ were the Estonians BILYK VLADIMIR ((Владимир Билык), Juniors) and KOSENKO PAVEL (Павел Косенко), Main Categories).
A few years in a row the „Comsomol Cup“ («Кубок комсомола», „Komjaunimo taurė“) was organized in Kaunas (Lithuanian SSR). Thirty bodybuilders from Latvian SSR, Estonian SSR, Lithuanian SSR, Ukrainian SSR and R.S.F.S.R. took part at the 1984 event. The Category Winners were: Juniors NAUDZIUS RIGARDAS (Lithuanian SSR), BILYK VLADIMIR, CHILCENKO JAKOV (Яков Хильченко, R.S.F.S.R.) and in the Main Categories POLIAKOV STANISLAV (Станислав Поляков, Latvian SSR), KAPCEVICIUS VLADAS (Lithuanian SSR), MASLOV OLEG (Олег Маслов, R.S.F.S.R.), AJU ARKADIJ (Аркадий Аю, Estonian SSR). The Over All Winners were VLADIMIR BILYK ir STANISLAV POLIAKOV.
Also in 1984 two competitions were organized in Charkov (Ukrainian SSR).  The organizer was ARKADIJ KASANSKIJ (Аркадий Кашанский). The first one was the „Cup of U.S.S.R. Cities“  («Кубок городов С.С.С.Р.»). It was devoted to the political „Victory Day“ («День победы»). Bodybuilders from the Lithuanian SSR, R.S.F.S.R. and Ukrainian SSR took part at the event. The Over All Winners were VILTORAS JUCYS (Juniors, Lithuanian SSR) and ALEKSANDR IVANIUK (Александр Иванюк, Main Categories, R.S.F.S.R.). Another 1984 competition in Charkov was of the same name. The Category Winners were JUCYS VIKTORAS, LUTCAK VALERIJ (Валерий Лутцак, Ukrainian SSR), LINAS BALTRIMAVICIUS, RAIMONDAS PETRAITIS. All Winners were from Lithuanian SSR but VALERIJ LUTCAK. The over All Winners were VIKTORAS JUCYS ir VALERIJ LUTCAK.
Folowing Kaunas organizers a famous contemporary poet and drama writer VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ (Виталий Асовский) organized the „Comsomol Cup“ in Vilnius in 1984. We would like to remind that after due to his illness the Chairman of the famous „Vilnius Bodybuilding School“ („Vilniaus kultūrizmo mokykla“, «Вильнюсская школа культуризма») CESLAV TAMULEVIC (Чеслав Тамулевич) left the sport, VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ took the School leadership. Bodybuilders of various U.S.S.R. Countries used to come to Vilnius to study bodybuilding. Ukrainian VALRTIJ LUTCAK was among them. Seventeen bodybuilders from Lithuanian SSR, Ukrainian SSR and Belorussian SSR took part at the 1984 „Comsomol Cup“ in Vilnius. The Junior Category Winners were Lithuanians BALINSKAS REMIGIJUS, BISIKIRSKIJ DMITRIJ (Дмитрий Бессикирский) and the Main Categories won GORELIK EUGENE (Евгений Горелик), SUBACIUS ANTANAS (both of Lithuanian SSR), FEDIUK VLADIMIR (Владимир Федюк, Belorussian SSR) and ZURCEV EUGENE (Евгений Журцев, Lithuanian SSR). Over All Winners were DMITRIJ BISIKIRSKIJ bei EUGENE GORELIK.
Also in 1984 another small competitios were organized in Luga (R.S.F.S.R.), Tallinn (Estonian SSR), Vitebsk (Belorussian SSR) and in Ryga (Latvian SSR).
In 1984 bodybuilding contests were held in D.D.R. (Deutshces Demokratishe Republik, German Democratic Republic) and in the C.S.S.R. (Czechoslovakian SSR). Traditional Czechoslovakian „Trener“ competition was organized in Trnava City. The Category Winners were SAULIUS MISEVICIUS (Lithuanian SSR) and Czechoslovaks ANTONAS SHARAJ (Anton Šaraj), ANTON HOLIC and ALOIS PEK.
Another Czechoslovak bodybuilding contest „Sandow“ was organized in Marianske Lazne resort. The organizer was LUDEK NOSEK. The Category Winners were the 1983 I.F.B.B. World Vice Champion MICHAEL PILIOTIS (I.F.B.B. and N.A.B.B.A. U.K.) and the 1984 I.F.B.B. Europe Champion MIROSLAV JASTEBSKY and JAN CERNY (both Czechoslovakian SSR). The Over All Winner was the U.K. bodybuilder.
One more contest was organized in Karl-Marx-Stadt (D.D.R.). The organizer was PETER BUTZE. The Category Winners were PETER BUTZE and representatives of the Lithuanian SSR KAPCEVICIUS VLADAS, DUBICKAS VINCAS and OSINOWSKI GRZEGORZ (P.R.P., People‘s Republic of Poland).

HOFFMAN, LURIE, WEIDERS, HEIDENSTAM.
A.A.U. – F.I.H.C. – W.B.B.G. – I.F.B.B. – N.A.B.B.A..
We write much about the Socialist bodybuilding which is still unknown to most of You. In the „West“ the situation in our sport was like this:
After the WWII World Official Bodybuilding Sport was rulled by American BOB HOFFMAN (Robert Collins Hoffman, 1898 - 1985 m.) through I.O.C. (International Olympic Committee) member F.I.H.C. (Federation Internationale Halterophile et Culturiste). It lasted from 1947 until 1969 when F.I.H.C. refused to guide bodybuilding sport. In 1970 F.I.H.C. General Secretary British OSCAR STATE used JOE and BEN WEIDER brothers money and practical work and established the I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) Sport Federation in Belgrade (Yugoslavia). Until this time I.F.B.B. was not a federation but a private company only. Since 1947 until 1969 no other bodybuilding sport organization could confront F.I.H.C. as behind it was I.O.C.. This was about bodybuilding sport. At the same time during the mentioned time in the USA and Canada real commercial war was between private companies of BOB HOFFMAN, WEIDER brothers and DAN LURIE. All of them issued bodybuilding magazines. At the same time hiding behind F.I.H.C. of BOB HOFFMAN N.A.B.B.A. (National Amateur Body Building Association) ruled bodybuilding in Europe. Most was done due to the effоrts of the N.A.B.B.A. President OSCAR HEIDENSTAM. In 1948 BOB HOFFMAN organized F.I.H.C. „Mr. Universe“ during the London Olympic Games in London. After creating N.A.B.B.A. in 1950 BOB HOFFMAN used to send famous USA bodybuilders to N.A.B.B.A. „Mr. Universe. At that time only few European bodybuilders could fight with USA Athletes on stage. BOB HOFFMAN popularized bodybuilding in Great Britain. Until 1971 all efforts of DAN LURIE (W.B.B.G., World Body Building Guild) and WEIDER brothers to fight with BOB HOFFMAN on bodybuilding sport basis had no chances.

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.

RE: WORLD BODY BUILDING FEDERATION (WBBF) - WFF_WBBF_Official - 11-08-2023

2023. ONE SINGLE MONTH‘S  RECORD – OVER 200 000 INDIVIDUAL ATTENDANTS OF THE INTERNATIONAL INTERNET SITE WWW.WFF.LT.
FACTS - POSITIVE RECOGNITION OF OUR LONG LASTING WORK DONE.
After August, 2023 we can underline the fact that the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International Internet Site www.wff.lt is very popular among World bodybuilders. No one ever wrote such analytical articles about history of bodybuilding, about the contemporary situation. For example only today we counted 15 423 attendants who were reading our materials.
We have another record of the Individual attendans of the month - the International Site had over 200 000 attendants in August. It means that so many sport lovers are interested in the matterials we present. No other International Bodybuilding and Fitness Site writes such actual facts and information as we do.
ONE SINGLE DAY RECORD – OVER 21 000 INDIVIDUAL ATTENDANTS OF THE INTERNET SITE WWW.WFF.LT.
It is not a surprise that so many sport lovers attend the Official Internet Site www.wff.lt of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International every day. All over the World no any other Official Site of any International Sport Organization in different languages dares to publish actual articles on the urgent and important sport matters. Nobody else but we, nowhere else but on the www.wff.lt .
Not long ago the Official Internet Site of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International www.wff.lt had a Record Day of Attendance – that were over 21 000 invividual visitors per 24 hours.
OTHER INTERNATIONAL SPORT ORGANIZATIONS THOROUGHLY STUDY INTERNET SITE WWW.WFF.LT.
30 years ago DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and German KLAUS P.J. HOFFMANN created W.F.F. - International. In 2014 German KLAUS P.J. HOFFMANN stopped his work and closed his part of W.F.F. federation. Several years ago Australian GRAEME LANCEFIELD opened „his own“ W.F.F.. GRAEME LANCEFIELD copied the history of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International as his own. We are sure he does not know about a single moment of this history. GRAEME LANCEFIELD bases his activities fooling and using N.A.B.B.A. (National Amateur Body Building Associoation) athletes.

RE: WORLD BODY BUILDING FEDERATION (WBBF) - Edita Sendriene WFF - 11-15-2023

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.
TWO U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING CHAMPIONSHIPS.
THE BEGINNING.
First pioneers of bodybuilding in Russia were weightlifters MARK SHAFRAN (Марк Шафран), ROMAN MOROZ (Роман Мороз), the first in the Socialist Countries World Weightlifting Champion GRIGORIJ NOVAK (Григорий Новак), Estonian GEORG TENNO  and GENADIJ BALDIN (Геннадий Балдин).
1966. FIRST SOCIALIST INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION.
In 1966 a bodybuilding contest was organized in Moscow (Russia) where the winner was IGOR PETRUCHIN (Игорь Петрухин, Russia). Also in 1966 the first in the Socialist Countries International Bodybuilding competition was organized in Vilnius (Lithuania). The Winners were IGOR PETRUCHIN, RYTIS MACIJAUSKAS and KLEMENSAS ALSHAUSKAS (both Lithuania); second places won Russian GENADIJ BALDIN, Lithuanians CESLAV TAMULEVICH (Чеслав Тамулевич) and ANATOLIJ PRIC (Анатолий Приц); third places went to Russian MARK SHAFRAN and Lithuanians RIMANTAS ZUJUS and ALGIMANTAS RAMANAUSKAS.
TRADITIONAL BODYBUILDING CONTESTS.
During the bodybuilding prohibition in the Socialist World (1973 – 1987) only few brave persons dared to organize competitions. There were only two regular International Bodybuilding Contests in all Socialist World: the „Amber Prix International“ (1968 – 2023, „Gintarinis prizas“, «Янтарный приз») organized in Lithuania by DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and „Georg Tenno Memorial“ (1971 – 1989, «Мемориал Георга Тэнно») organized in Estonia by INNAR MARDO (1946 – 2002).
TWO OFFICIAL U.S.S.R. CHAMPIONSHIPS.
Just before the prohibition and prosecution of bodybuilding in the Socialist World the 1971 and 1972 U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championships  („Чемпионат С.С.С.Р.“) were held. We would like to remind that since 1947 until 1969 the World‘s Official Bodybuilding was ruled by the International Weightlifting Federation F.I.H.C.. F.I.H.C. was a member of the International Olympic Committee. All bodybuilding contests were of two parts: the power exercises and posing. In the Socialist Countries this tradition remained during all years of the prohibition of bodybuilding. Prosecuted by Governments and press bodybuilder were hiding themselves behind the power exercises.
FIRST U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING CHAMPIONSHIP.
The first U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship was held in 1971 in Russia Severodvinsk City. The Over All Champion was a Russian Severodvinsk Athlete ALEKSANDR LEMECHOV (Александр Лемехов), representing Leningrad City VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин) was at the second place and at the third place was Russian VLADIMIR CHOMULIOV (Владимир Хомулёв).
SECOND U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING CHAMPIONSHIP.
In 1972 the second U.S.S.R. bodybuilding Championship was held in Russia City Sverdlovsk. The representatives of six countries of Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania participated at the event. In the short category the Winner was  VLADIMIR LIPJAINEN (Владимир Липьянен), the second place went to BORIS ZITKOV (Борис Житков), the third place went to DMITRIJ CHANEV (Дмитрий Чанев), all from Russia. The middle category Winner was Lithuanian VALDAS ALIUBAVICHUS, at the second place was SERGEJ KIZIN (Сергей Кизин), at the third place was ALEKSANDR NIKIFOROV (Александр Никифоров), both from Russia. The highest category Winner was VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин), at the second place was ALEKSANDR LEMECHOV (Александр Лемехов), at the third place was VLADIMIRAS CHOMULIOVAS (Владимир Хомулёв), all from Russia.

RE: WORLD BODY BUILDING FEDERATION (WBBF) - WFF_WBBF_Official - 11-19-2023

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.
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.

WOMEN FITNESS SHORT HISTORY.
GREAT STARS OF WORLD FITNESS.
Today everybody knows that OKSANA GRISINA (Оксана Гришина, Russian Federation) is the conteporary World Fitness Leader. Just now she won Pro „Olympia“ contest and it was done maybe ten times in a row. But anyhow World Fitness started 100 years ago in the USA.
LITHUANIA EMIGRANT CONGUERS AMERICA.
It was Emigrant of Lithuania BRONE DUBAR (Broné “Brownie” Dubar, Daubaraitė, 1906 – 1986) who came with her family to the USA in 1912. When her sport achievements went high she started public shows. Specialists use to call her „World Fitness Pioneer“ but in her times there was no any fitness sport at all. To say more – women sport was included to „Olympics“ only in 1920. This was the reason that 100 years ago gymnastic and acrobatic exercises of BRONE DUBAR were not named as „sport“. Aiming to make fitness propaganda BRONE DUBAR made her shows through all USA – from South to North and from West to East.
FIRST OVER ALL WORLD FITNESS CHAMPION.
Lithuanian EDITA SENDRIENE (Daubaraite, Dubar) was the ground ground ground daughter of BRONE DUBAR.  From the childhood attending balely and gymnastic schools she visited a N.A.B.B.A. (National Amateur Body Building Association) Show in Malta.  EDITA SENDRIENE liked performances of some „Miss Figure“ participants. Returned to Lithuania she decided to train and participate at sport competitions. Everything was ok. In 1996 the founders of the W.F.F. - International (World Fitness Federation) DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and German KLAUS P.J. HOFFMANN started World Fitness Championships in Kaizerslautern (Germany). This way in 1997 in Manheim (Germany) EDITA SENDRIENE became the Over All World Fitness Champion. „Eurosport“ Television amde several reports about this. The Sport Ministry of Lithuanian Republic wanted to present EDITA SENDRIENE a Governmental Award but envy and intrigues among sport federations ruined this idea.
 SECOND AND THIRD OVER ALL WORLD FITNESS CHAMPIONS.
After the victory of EDITA SENDRIENE the next two talanted World „Fitness Stars“ became the I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) Over All World Fitness Champions. That were MARIETA ZIGALOVA (Republic Slovakia) and ALEKSANDRA KOBIELAK (Republic Poland). For many years on both Athletes were representing their Countries at the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) World and Europe Fitness Championships. Both of them led the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. National Teams of Aerobic Fitness and „Fit – kids“.

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.

RE: WORLD BODY BUILDING FEDERATION (WBBF) - Edita Sendriene WFF - 12-12-2023

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.

1986. SOCIALIST BODYBUILDING NEWS.

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.

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.

FOREIGN MINISTRY REPUBLIC LITHUANIA WORKS WITH W.F.F.-W.B.B.F..
Today the International Federation W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) unites 140 Country-Members from all Continents. Every year W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. holds over 60 International Events in various Countries.
C.N.N. NEWS PRESENTED W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. TO A BILLION PEOPLE WORLD WIDE.
Some time ago the Global C.N.N. (Cable News Network) television made a special report on the W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. events that were held in Klaipeda (E.U., Republic Lithuania) in May, 2017. That were the 50-th „Amber Prix International“ Янтарный приз», «Gintarinis Prizas“, 1968-2017) and the 18-th „Universe“ contests. Due to this a billion (milliard) people World Wide had a possibility to see the W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. International work.
C.N.N. is one of the World‘s most important International News Television Companies. We do not remember that C.N.N. ever reported about bodybuilding sport before. Positively reported... We are proud that the report was about the W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. International Events, that had happened in Lithuania, European Union.
Before this the W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. International also had a number of  reports on other International Television Companies, such as  „Eurosport“, „Sky News“ and many national televisions of various countries through the World.
FOREIGN MINISTRY REPUBLIC LITHUANIA WORKS WITH W.F.F.-W.B.B.F.
Receiving the information about the C.N.N. preparations to make a report from the W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. International events in Lithuania, the Lithuania Republic Foreign Ministry officials addressed the International President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  and assisted him in the common work with the C.N.N. television.
W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. ALWAYS WAS NON KOMMERCIAL SPORT ORGANIZATION.
During the sixty years of it‘s activities the W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. always kept on the real sport side. Though there were various political and economical dificulties, the federation never stopped working on (read historical articles on the International Site www.wff.lt).
W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. athletes always had possibilities to seek the highest titles at the International recognized official contests. Historic statistics prove the W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. is a prestigeous International Federation among all federations. One can organize several successfull competitions, but it is not the same as the fivety years of serious stable work. The power of the W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. – sixty years of constant International Sport work.
Today the valuables of the mankind changed. For most people money means everything. No morality, only money and lies. The 3000 years lasting Bible Concept of Ruling Menkind is close to the end. Today most of International Sport Organizations are commercial. Even W.A.D.A. (World Anti Doping Agency) seeks profit and this is the reason that not every International Sport Organization can join W.A.D.A.. Such mentioned above organizations  proclame commerce, not sport. It is a theater of absurd now and we were writing about this many times before.
W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. will remain conservative and it will not follow other commercial sport organizations.  W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. will remain on the real sport side and this is our priority. 
In difference to other organizations W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. collaborates with the recognized International Sport Institutions, National Governmental Structures and representatives of all religions. All of them notice and valuate the W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. activities. We see the W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. as a strong friendly unit and this is our power.

RE: WORLD BODY BUILDING FEDERATION (WBBF) - WFF_WBBF_Official - 12-29-2023

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.
1987 KUBENKA. NEW „U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING FEDERATION“.
Bodybuilding in the U.S.S.R. and Socialist Countries was prohibited since 1973. Finally in 1987 bodybuilding was officially recognized in the U.S.S.R. and a new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ («Федерация культуризма С.С.С.Р.») was established as it was planned by several persons in 1986. Then those persons after 1986 „Amber Prix International“ (“Gintarinis prizas”, «Янтарный приз», 1968 – 2023) came together at the appartments of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS in Klaipeda (Lithuanian SSR, full article on this meeting is on International Site www.wff.lt ). At that time the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“ („Министерство спорта С.С.С.Р.», «Госкомспорт С.С.С.Р.“) was led by the Minister ALEKSANDR KOLESOV (Александр Колесов). Official recognition of bodybuilding needed several formal steps: the meeting of the U.S.S.R. bodybuilders to set a new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“, to set Chairmen and establish Committees.
Before the 1987 meeting of the U.S.S.R. bodybuilders in Kubenka two important International Contests were held. That were the 1987 „Amber Prix International“ (Klaipeda) and the „White Nights“ («Белые ночи», Leningrad, R.S.F.S.R.) competitions. It was the last time in 1987 when the „Amber Prix International“ was run as the „Unofficial U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ («неофициальный чемпионат С.С.С.Р. по культуризму»). It lasted since 1978 in Klaipeda. The official representative of the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“ VALERIJ TAMARLAKOV (Валерий Тамарлаков) was present at the 1987 „Amber Prix International“. Also another Contest was run in Leningrad and it was the „White Nights“.
On August 11, 1987  the meeting of the U.S.S.R. bodybuilders was set in Kubenka (R.S.F.S.R. Moscow region). Representatives of eleven Socialist Republics participated at the event. Instead of the old formal „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ («Комиссия атлетической гимнастики С.С.С.Р.») representatives of Leningrad City VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин) and VASILIJ CAIKOVSKIJ (Василий Чайковский) preposed to create a new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“.  The old one did not preforme any noticable work so new changes were needeed. We would like to remind that in 1978 DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wrote bodybuilding defending petition and presented it to the highest U.S.S.R. political institutions, including the „U.S.S.R. Central Committee of Communist Party“ («Центральный комитет коммунистической партии С.С.С.Р.»). This gave possibilities of prosecution of bodybuilding be not so strong. This way in 1979 the old and formal  „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ was set at the „U.S.S.R. Weightlifting Federation“ («Федерация тяжёлой атлетики С.С.С.Р.»). It was led by a R.S.F.S.R. weightlifter Chairman ROMAN MOROZ (Роман Мороз). The Secretary of the old federation was ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS. In fact ROMAN MOROZ was fare away from bodybuilding and ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS did the work alone himself. There were no possibilities to do any normal work as bodybuilding it the U.S.S.R. was prohibited.
The Chairmen of the new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ were ellected at the 1987 meeting in Kubenka. The influence of weightlifting still was evident and the first President of the federation became a famous R.S.F.S.R. weighlifter Olympic Champion JURIJ VLASOV (Юрий Власов). Basing on his popularity JURIJ VLASOV did all formal paper work for the new federation. Two Vice Chairmen of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ were ellected: VASILIJ CAIKOVSKIJ and ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS. The Secretary of the federation was chosen the Official of the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“ VALERIJ TAMNARLAKOV.
Along with the meeting in Kubenka two seminars were held. First one was of ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS. He told bodybuilders about the „supplements“, their positive and negative sides. Also he told how he overused them and this way spoiled his health. Since that time he can not train anymore now.
Another seminar was done by a contemporary poet and drama writter VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ (Виталий Асовский). He represented the famous „Vilnius Bodybuilding School“ («Вильнюсская школа культуризма»). The School was established in middle of sixties of the last Century  by a talanted trainer CESLAV TAMULEVIC (Чеслав Тамулевич, 1945 – 2023, in 2019 awarded with the „International Honour Silver Medal“ by the International President of W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS). For two decades the representatives of the „Vilnius Bodybuilding School“ were among top U.S.S.R. bodybuilders. VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ replaced the Chairman when in 1980 due to illness CESLAV TAMULEVIC left bodybuilding. In Kubenka VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ told bodybuilders about posing, routines. He classified all poses of bodybuilders and presented the programmes on stage himself. At that time Soviet Bodybuilding was much higher in level if compared to today‘s primitiveness... Soviet Bodybuilding was SPORT!

RE: WORLD BODY BUILDING FEDERATION (WBBF) - DSc. Edmundas Daubaras - 12-31-2023

2024. Celebrating sixty years of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International Activities and confronting the coming New Year of 2024 -  Congratulating Words of the President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International DSc. Edmundas Daubaras.
I am proud of all our common work done. It is a pity that pandemia and wars made so many obstacles to do it better.
Closing the year of the 2023 we want to thank all of You for the huge work that was done. We have been working much and achieved good positive results in 2023 again. Today the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International federation unites national organizations of 140 countries that represent all Continents.
During the last sixty years of it‘s International activities, the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. presented the highest International Honour Sport Award – the International Honour Gold Medal. Among the World Sport V.I.P. Persons this Award was presented to the President Parliament Austria Professor Alfred Gerstl, Slovakia Prime Minister Vladimir Meciar, Slovakia Prime Minister Robert Fico, the Mecenats Stefan Hrcka (Slovakia) and Jerzy Gotowski (Poland), Aleksandr Gridin (Lithuania), and the Hollywood Sport Personalities Aleksandr Nevsky (Russia-USA), Sylvester Stallone (USA), Ralf Moller (Germany-USA) and Chuck Norris (USA).
During the last period of time the new Country - members were included to the International federation, such as Macedonia.
We would like to underline that in 120 years of the World Sport History it was the first time when representing our sport the International President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. DSc. Edmundas Daubaras visited and worked at the Headquarters of the United Nations in Geneva (Switzerland). Basing on the U.N. our federation knows the way to get out of International bodybuilding crisis and to develop official sport in future.
New International Title. In September, 2023 Rector of the oldest Ukraine Lvov Stavropigeon University Professor DSc. JAROSLAV KMIT proposed International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.  federation President, Rector of the International Sport University (I.S.U.) DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to the respectful title of the “2023 U.N.E.S.C.O. Ambassador of Peace”. U.N.E.S.C.O. (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) organization presented this title to DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. At the same time DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was awarded with the U.N.E.S.C.O. Medal and the Star.
Imagine – we organized so many International Events World Wide! The Official Flag and the Official Himna of the W.F.F. - W.B.B.F. International federation were presented at the most important World‘s Events. Especially important to the World‘s official sport were the our sport live history the 56-th „Amber Prix International“ (1968 - 2023, «Янтарный приз», «Gintarinis prizas“), the 34 -th World Amateur and Professional Championships.
On October 1, 2023 the 28-th W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International Europe Championship and traditional „Liepaja Classic“ were held in Liepaja, Republic of Latvia. A number of members of the U.N.E.S.C.O. organization took part at the events. That were the above mentioned „2023 U.N.E.S.C.O. Ambassador of Peace“ («Посол Мира Ю.Н.Е.С.К.О. 2023 года»), the Rector of International Sport University (I.S.U., ректор Международного университета спорта), the International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS; Journalist, U.N.E.S.C.O. Award Holder, U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Pioneer VALERIJ KORESKOV (Lithuania); famous bodybuilder, U.N.E.S.C.O. Award Holder, Ukraine Bodybuilding Pioneer, Professor of four Universities VASILIJ BESPALENKO (Ukraine).
No one other International Organization, that represents our sport, can not be proud of so long history of it’s International activities. No one of them has so many Country - Members. No one organizes so many official International events. No one of other organizations seek developing of our sport on official level, but the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.. They even do not try to do this. To say more – today all International Federations have chosen the commercial way of their development and nearly all of them  are private commercial profit companies today, not sport federations.
Especially we were would like to underline tremendous work done by the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.  International V.I.P. Officials Lalit Soni (India), Andrej Basov, Svetlana Pugacheva, Oleg Lunin (all Russia), Edita Sendriene, Jurij Stepanov  and Vytautas Mikuckis (all Lithuania), Jorge Cedale (Argentina), Peter Papula (Austria), Alloudin Bhatte (Pakistan), Tolga Murat Balikci (Turkey),  Alireza Rasa (Iran), Omid Ramez (Canada), Amirhossein Pourezzat (Malaysia),  Pibe Rodriguez (Paraguay), Wander Primenta (Brazil), James Davidsom (South Africa), Angelina Romanovic, Maris Sveiduks, Jurans Normunds (Latvia), Vasilij Bespalenko (Ukraine), Gvidon Alvantzian (Cyprus), Sergej Medvedev (Uzbekistan), Simo Bogdanoff and Aki Mahonen (both Finland), Dave Foster (U.K.), Leonor Hilario Greffel (Mozambique) and Oleg Akopov (Bulgaria), Wojciech Nadolski (Poland), Roman Gurjev (Estonia) and many other our sport personalities.
The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International goes on working on the unbelievable huge unique work – the “World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia” (“Pasaulinė kultūrizmo enciklopedija”, «Энциклопедия всемирного культуризма»).  It will be published in various languages. Until now nobody in the World ever dared to do such a tremendous project. We are sure – this way many facts of our one hundred years lasting history, many names of the International organizers and sportsmen will be not forgotten.
In 2016 under the initiative of the W.F.F.-W.B.B.F. International the International Sport University (I.S.U., Tarptautinis sporto universitetas, Международный университет спорта) was established and registered in the European Union. Under the guidance of talanted administrators and scientists now it works succcessfully. In 2017 the I.S.U. became the Associated member of the U.N.E.S.C.O. organization at the U.N.. Professor of four Universities VASILIJ BESPALENKO and Professor LALIT KUMAR SONI work  activelly at the International Sports University.
We would like to remember that in 2012 in Vatican through His personal letter the Roman Pope Benedictus XVI (Benedetto XVI)  blessed the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International activities.
As we have mentioned above we do not mean “festivals” and various “expo”. We mean only official sport. Representing World‘s Fitness and Bodybuilding Sport the W.F.F. - International and the W.B.B.F. - International are the only ones World Wide Officially Registered International Non Profit Sport Organizations that work well for official sport for so long time. New ideas and tremendous work done for the International Sport make the W.F.F. and W.B.B.F. to be the today’s International Leaders in Bodybuilding and Fitness World Wide. We mean the Official Level. The W.F.F. and W.B.B.F. do not live yesterday’s life. We have lots of  new Global Bodybuilding Projects ahead.
HEALTH, SUCCESS, LUCK AND HAPPINESS IN 2024!!!
God bless all of us in our sincere pray!

RE: WORLD BODY BUILDING FEDERATION (WBBF) - WFF_WBBF_Official - 01-07-2024

2024. NO OTHER INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING FEDERATION HAS IT‘S OWN MAGAZINE, BUT W.F.F. – W.B.B.F..
WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.
Today  the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  International unites 140 Country – Members and organizes every year nearly 60 anual Am and Pro International Events World Wide. Looking from the juridic point of view the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International is no doubt the Real World Bodybuilding Leader.
W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International started issuing the International Magazines in various languages in 1989. The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. 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 W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. 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 W.F.F. – W.B.B.F..
Not long ago the Sport Ministry Lithuania informed the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International that the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Magazines will be  Representing sport of Republic Lithuania Internationally.
ARNOLD SCWARZENEGGER RECOMMENDS
The first W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. 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 U.S.S.R. and East Europe. Several generations of today‘s bodybuilders grew up under these magazines.
WORKING PUBLISHING GROUP
The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. working publishing group is led by the Member International Journalist Association the International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. President DSc EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. For the period of the last 30 years the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. 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 W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International asking to send them our magazines. So we did then.
WORLD BODYBUILDING  ENCYCLOPEDIA
Crowning it‘s sixty years of  International Bodybuilding activities, the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.  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 D.D.R. (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», 1968-2023). The above mentioned Czechoslovakia „Trener“ Magazines were published by JOZEF MAZAK and later by MILAN PERDOCH.
International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. worked and still works on the documents and various materials of World‘s Bodybuilding History. The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ Magazine started in English, Russian and Lithuanian languages in 1989. During this period of time the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. printed and spread through the World several millions copies of the Magazine. „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ is awailable at the National W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. federations in all 140 Country - members of the W.F.F. - W.B.B.F. 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 W
.F.F. – W.B.B.F. 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 W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. 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 W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Headquarters (like German State Library of Leipzig, Germany).
Today the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. „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 W.F.F. – W.B.B.F..

WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA.
1988 SOCIALIST BODYBUILDING NEWS.
Bodybuilding in Socialist countries faced new horisons when in 1987 was created the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ («Федерация культуизма С.С.С.Р.»). The prohibition and the prosecution of bodybuilding ended. Socialist Republics started organizing many bodybuilding competitions. U.S.S.R. bodybuilders were invited to contests of various countries.
No doubt – in 1988 the most important bodybuilding contest was the first official „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Cup“ («Кубок С.С.С.Р. по культуризму»). It was recognized and supported by the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“ («Министерство спорта С.С.С.Р.»). 69 bodybuilders representing 13 Socialist Republics took part at the event. The competition was held in the still today prestigeous Leningrad Palace „Oktiabrskij“ (дворец „Октябрьский», Ленинград). The Category Winners were: STANISLAV POLIAKOV (Станислав Поляков, Riga, Latvian SSR, trainer FELIKS SAJKOVSKJ, Феликс Сайковский); VALERIJ BOGDANOVIC (Валерий Богданович, Minsk, Belorussian SSR, no trainer); SAULIUS MISEVICIUS (Kaunas, Lithuanian SSR, no trainer); VIKTORAS JUCYS (Klaipeda, Lithuanian SSR, trainer DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS). The title of the Over All Winner went to VIKTORAS JUCYS. Since that time he holds the title „Mister Absoliutus S.S.S.R.“ («Мистер Абсолютус С.С.С.Р.»). His trainer DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was awarded with the Special Diploma of the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“. All Category Winners received the degrees of the “U.S.S.R. Sport Master” («Мастер спорта С.С.С.Р.»).
The I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) President BEN WEIDER was present at the contest. He spoke very positivelly about VIKTORAS JUCYS then. BEN WEIDER invited all Category Winners to the 1988 I.F.B.B. World Championships in Australia. The special conference was organized fro BEN WEIDER to communicate with the U.S.S.R. bodybuilders. On the top of the stage sat BEN WEIDER and DSc. EEDMUNDAS DAUBARAS, as he was the only one among the U.S.S.R. bodybuilders and officials to know foreign languages. Bodybuilders asked questions and DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS translated them. Finally when questions ended the conference looked as a dialoque only of BEN WEIDER and DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS.
Some words on the topic. During the last years appeared „new International federations“ which cheat bodybuilders and lie to them. These „federations“ have no value to the official sport of bodybuilding. They are not recognized by any International Organization. In all the World only Governments of former Socialist and Asia Countries use to support and finance National Federations of I.F.B.B.. Earlier this was because of the I.F.B.B. membership in the G.A.I.S.F. (“General Association of International Sports Federations”). Now it is because of I.F.B.B. being a W.A.D.A. (“World Anti – Doping Agency”) member. Due to the efforts of American BOB HOFFMAN since 1947 until 1969 World‘s bodybuilding was rulled by F.I.H.C. (F.I.H., Federation Internationale Halterophile). Then bodybuilding was an officially recognized and respected sport as the F.I.H.C. was a member of the I.O.C. (International Olympic Committee). BOB HOFFMAN seeked bodybuilding to be an Olympic sport. In 1970 F.I.H.C. Secretary OSCAR STATE and WEIDER brothers BEN and JOE created the I.F.B.B. federation in Belgrade (Yugoslavia). In 1971 I.F.B.B. became a member of the G.A.I.S.F.. When I.O.C. refused to support the I.F.B.B. in 1998, WEIDER brothers sold the I.F.B.B. federation and magazines. Contemporary I.F.B.B. President RAFAEL SANTONJA ruined I.F.B.B. officiality after this I.F.B.B. two times was split. In 2022 W.A.D.A. refused to work with I.F.B.B. any longer. This is I.F.B.B.. If we speak about other “federations” we can see only humor and nothing more…
In 1988 the first „U.S.S.R. Junior Bodybuilding Championship“ Чемпионат С.С.С.Р. среди юниоров») was organized in Charkov (Ukrainian SSR). Bodybuilders of 8 Socialist Republics took part at the event. At the same time the Committee of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ had a meeting in Charkov too. U.S.S.R. bodybuilders got rid of the decades lasting influence of the U.S.S.R. weightlifters. The President of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ Olympic Champion JURIJ VLASOV (Юрий Власов) informed that he was leaving the federation. At the same time Secretary of the federation VALERIJ TAMARLAKOV (Валерий Тамарлаков) was thrown out as nobody of bodybuilders trusted him. The new President of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ became VASILIJ CAIKOVSKIJ (Василий Чайковский). Confrontation between JURIJ VLASOV and Leningrad bodybuilding officials started in 1987. As the long lasting Chairman of the National Bodybuilding Federation of the Estonian SSR INNAR MARDO Иннар Мардо, 1946 – 2002 m.) wrote to DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS – JURIJ VLASOV wanted to organize a great International bodybuilding contest in Moscow in 1987. The venue, the medals and posters were printed, bodybuilders were invited and the U.S.S.R. Central Television agreed to meke a report of the competition. But Leningrad officials VLADIMIR DUBININ and VASILIJ CAIKOVSKIJ were against the contest in Moscow. Supported by the Deputy Chairman of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS they organized the 1987 „White Nights“ («Белые ночи») in Leningrad. This smashed the plans of JURIJ VLASOV. He was deeply offended.
In 1988 an International Contest of women bodybuilders was organized. The Category Winners were representatives of the Lithuanian SSR: NATALIJA DUCHOVIC (Murnikoviene, Наталия Духович), AUSRA SALOMSKAITE, INGA MISEVIČIENE.
In 1988 the I.F.B.B. World Championship was held in Australia. The U.S.S.R. bodybuilders participated at such level the first time. In Australia the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ became a member of the I.F.B.B.. All Winners of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Cup“ were included to the team. Among them two representatives of the Lithuanian SSR – VIKTORAS JUCYS and SAULIUS MISEVICIUS. They trained in Moscow. Thgether with bodybuilders the delegation of the U.S.S.R. officials went to Australia too. The Deputy Chairman of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS learned that he was not included to the delegation to Australia. ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS was responsible for passports and visas for the bodybuilders of the Lithuanian SSR. Being angry he kept the passports with him and bodybuilders could not fly to Australia. They were left in Moscow... Having no Lithuanians on board the U.S.S.R. team was of STANISLAV POLIAKOV, VALERIJ BOGDANOVIC, ALEKSANDR VASIN (Александр Васин). The U.S.S.R. bodybuilders did not place high at the World Championshgip then.
The old tradition of the „Amber Prix International“ («Янтарный приз», „Gintarinis prizas“,  1968 – 2023) did not stop. Chairmen of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ spoke that there is no more need of the „Amber Prix International“ as the U.S.S.R. was participating at the I.F.B.B. World and Europe Championships and it had the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ as well. At the 1988 „Amber Prix International“ participated 112 bodybuilders that represented 9 Socialist Republics. By gradation „Amber Prix International“ was at the second place after the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ in the U.S.S.R.. The Category Winners in 1988 were: Juniors - VIRGINIJUS TVARIONAS, ROBERTAS BALINSKAS (both Lithuanian SSR), ANDREJ VOJTOVIC  (Андрей Войтович, Belorussian SSR), BORIS VELIKOIVANENKO (Борис Великоиваненко, R.S.F.S.R.) and main Categories – NIKOLAJ MALYSEV (Николай Малышев, R.S.F.S.R.), ZIGMAS PRELGAUSKAS, SAULIUS MISEVICIUS, VIKTORAS JUCYS (all Lithuanian SSR). The Over All Winners were BORIS VELIKOIVANENKO and VIKTORAS JUCYS.
To celebrate 70 years of Comsomol City Kaunas (Lithuanian SSR) organized traditional „Comsomol Cup“ («Кубок комсомола», „Komjaunimo taure“). Comsomol Committee of Kaunas helped to invite the bodybuilders from Czechoslovakian SSR (C.S.S.R.) and D.D.R. (German Democratic Republic). The Category Winners were VLADAS KAPCEVICIUS and RAIMUNDAS IVANAISKAS (both Lithuanian SSR). At the same time the „Over All Winner‘s Cup“ («Кубок абсолютных чемпионов») was held too. The Over All Winner was ALEKSANDR TARASEVIC (Александр Тарасевич, R.S.F.S.R.).
In 1988 West German bodybuilders participated at the International Contest in Riga (Latvian SSR). This was the first time when after the “Iron Wall” period the “West” sportsmen came to the U.S.S.R.. Germans and Latvians were the first in bodybuilding to break the “Iron Wall” which was between the Socialist and the “West” Worlds. Athletes from Estonian SSR, West Germany, Ukrainian SSR, Lithuanian SSR and Latvian SSR took part in the Riga event. The best among the Germans was the Senior Europe Champion HEINZ HORLING and the best among the U.S.S.R. bodybuilders was Latvian STANISLAV POLIAKOV.
In 1988 a number of International bodybuilding Contests were held in the C.S.S.R. and D.D.R.. Having written confirmation of the „Ministry Soport of the Lithuanian SSR“ («Комитет физкультуры и спорта Литовской ССР») the National Team to „Sandow“ and „Trener“ contests was led by DSc.
