WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.
1991 “MR. URAL”.
BODYBUILDING TIMES OF CARPETS.
Before it started.
Time goes so fast and today in public often comes information which is far away from the truth. People who were not present at certain events are writing articles and books which are based on rumours. They pay no attention to the facts and opinion of the real participants of these events. For example, several years ago in Lithuania was issued a book “Lithuanian bodybuilding history” which carries facts that are not correct. Some time ago in Russia was issued a book about a famous Russia bodybuilder VLADIMIR DUBININ. For thirty  years VLADIMIR DUBININ  was the President of the National IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders)  Federation of  Russia. There are many not correct facts and interpretations on the history of the USSR bodybuilding in the book.
Today after thirty years in internet appeared false information about the 1991 International “Mr.Ural” contest. The information is published by a former Russian bodybuilder OLEG ANDREJEV (Олег Андреев). People start discussing the angry letter of an USSR official which he wrote on the background of rumours only.
Continuing our work on the unique International project of the “World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia” («Энциклопедия мирового культуризма», „Pasaulio kultūrizmo enciklopedija“)  in 2020 we plan to issue in various languages a book about the history of bodybuilding in the USSR. There will be many historical documents, authentic stories and pictures and the reader will have a chance to see the historic happenings on different angle.
1991 “Mr. Ural” Contest
The organizer of the 1990-1991 “Mr. Ural” Contest in Ural Ufa City was ALTAF GALEJEV. For a number of years ALTAF GALEJEV  used to come with Ufa bodybuilding team to the  officially recognized World’s oldest traditional bodybuilding contest “Amber Prix International” (1968-2019, “Gintarinis prizas”, «Янтарный приз»). Participating at the 1991 “Mr. Ural” Contest contemporary President of the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  and his wife were the invited personal guests of the organizer ALTAF GALEJEV.
Judges of the 1991 “Mr. Ural”.
Though at the 1991 “Mr. Ural” together with the USSR bodybuilders participated teams of Germany, Holland and USA – the judges were only of the USSR side. These judges in years were known one to another. To say more – these judges were trainers of the sportsmen, who participated at the 1991 “Mr. Ural” Contest and their personal interest in the competition results was very plain and clear. Even more: Lithuanian Judge ARVYDAS MILVYDAS some time before started working as the director of Vilnius sport centre. He had possibilities to offer money to bodybuilders. So he did. ARVYDAS MILVYDAS offered money to a number of known bodybuilders who were for many years trained by a famous USSR trainer VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ. The bodybuilders of VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ without any hesitation left him and run to ARVYDAS MILVYDAS. Today when sport became totally commercial  it is nothing special about this, many athletes use to do this. But in the USSR of 1991 it was a single unfair happening on the moral side. Having no trainer’s experience before it ARVYDAS MILVYDAS appeared at “Mr. Ural” Competition in Ufa with his team of known bodybuilders.
Judging
After the calculation of the 1991 “Mr. Ural” Contest results the awards ceremony started. Among the usual traditional awards for the winners were the carpets. To understand the situation now we should explain the situation of life in the USSR. It is impossible to understand it easy for the contemporary people. Due to political situation for many years cars, carpets, spare parts for cars etc. were impossible to get in the USSR. Only the trade unions of the USSR were giving special licences for the best workers to buy these things. For German, Holland and USA participants of the 1991 “Mr. Ural” these carpets were of no value. But the representatives of the USSR looked upon this differently. For them the carpets were of great value.  A scandal started during the award ceremony. German, Holland and the USA representatives did not agree with the judging and they insisted to cancel the judging results.
It was a break at the contest announced. Then the contest organizer ALTAF GALEJEV  collected official representatives of Germany, Holland and USA for a special meeting. The only one at the competition knowing well the English and the German languages DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was present at the meeting too. The German team was led to Ufa by a famous National trainer of the German team. The team consisted of famous International athletes and among them AUREL HILLEBRAND – one of the winners of the 1991 Europe Championship. At the meeting the representatives spoke that “they came to a bodybuilding contest and not to the place of dividing carpets. Why ALTAF GALEJEV invited them to UFA if there is only the manipulation with carpets?” After the  discussion all of the representatives decided to change the results only in one category. They replaced Lithuanian OLEG ZUR with AUREL HILLEBRAND giving the first place to the German bodybuilder. Also OLEG ZUR had to give back to the German the carpets... AUREL HILLEBRAND  did not want to take the carpets saying he came to the bodybuilding competition and he does not need them. We would like to remind that later in 2004 Lithuanian OLEG ZUR was the over all IFBB World Champion in Moscow. By the way the 2004 IFBB World Championship was also full of intrigues. Any can find in various languages the historic documents, articles at the International Page www.wff.lt , read information on the main page and in the forum topics.
Scandal of carpets goes on.
Returned from 1991 “Mr. Ural” home the Lithuania bodybuilders were upset.  They told their story to the Secretary of the USSR Bodybuilding Federation ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS. Hearing only one side and based only on words and rumours ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS wrote an angry letter to the President of the USSR Bodybuilding Federation VLADIMIR DUBININ. Then a special Congress of the USSR Bodybuilding Federation Council was announced. The Congress put punishment to the 1991 “Mr. Ural” organizer  ALTAF GALEJEV. Then ALTAF GALEJEV left the IFBB and started working with another International Federation.

2020. Celebrating more than fifty years of the WFF-WBBF International Activities and confronting the coming New Year of 2020 -  Congratulating Words of the President WFF-WBBF International DSc. Edmundas Daubaras.
Closing the year of the 2019 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 2019 again. Today the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International federation unites national organizations of 135 countries, that represent all Continents.
During the last fifty years of it‘s International activities, the WFF-WBBF presented the highest International Honour Sport Award – the International Honour Gold Medal. Among the World Sport VIP 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).
In 2019 at the old historic Lithuania Raudondvaris Castle the WFF-WBBF International awarded with the Honour Silver Medal the following V.I.P. Persons: SIGITAS PAULAUSKAS, Mecenat, Lithuania; ANDREJ BASOV, International Vice President WFF-WBBF, Russia; LALIT KUMAR SONI, International Vice President WFF-WBBF, India; DAINIUS DZIKEVICIUS, World Bodybuilding Legend, Lithuani;, VALERIJ KORESKOV, World Bodybuilding Legend, Lithuania; SVETLANA PUGACHEVA, Chairman International Technical Committee, Russia.
During the last period of time the new members were included to the International federation, such as Thailand, Nepal, Singapore, Cambodia and Vietnam.
Working Internationally many official and working visits were organized to various countries, such as India, Thailand, Malaysia, Ukraine, Russia, Slovakia etc..
In 120 years of the World Sport History it was the first time when representing our sport the International President WFF-WBBF DSc. Edmundas Daubaras visited and worked at the Headquarters of the United Nations in Geneva (Switzerland).
Imagine – we organized 60 International Events World Wide! The Official Flag and the Official Himna of the WFF-WBBF 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 52-d „Amber Prix International“ (1968 - 2019, «Янтарный приз», «Gintarinis prizas“), the 30-th World Amateur and Professional Championships, the 20-th  „Universe“ and the 4-th BRICS Championship. In 2019 WFF-WBBF received permition to organize a WFF-WBBF Pro Event on Eiffel Tower in Paris (France). We will do our best to make it in 2020.
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 WFF-WBBF. 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 WFF-WBBF  International VIP Officials Lalit Soni (India), Andrej Basov, Svetlana Pugacheva and Ksenija Skvorcova (all Russia), Edita Sendriene, Dainius Dzikevicius  and Vytautas Mikuckis (all Lithuania), Jorge Cedale (Argentina), Alloudin Bhatte (Pakistan), Tolga Murat Balikci (Turkey),  Alireza Rasa (Iran), Omid Ramez (Canada), Amirhossein Pourezzat (Malaysia),  Pibe Rodriguez (Paraguay), Gianni Almeida (Brazil), James Davidsom (South Africa), Angelina Romanovic (Latvia), Vasilij Bespalenko (Ukraine), Gvidon Alvantzian (Cyprus), Sergej Medvedev (Uzbekistan), Simo Bogdanoff (Finland), Dave Foster (UK), Leonor Hilario Greffel (Mozambique), Gvidon Alvantzian (Cyprus) and Oleg Akopov (Bulgaria), Wojciech Nadolski and Grazyna Korpan (both Poland) and many other our sport personalities.
The WFF-WBBF 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.
In 2016 under the initiative of the WFF-WBBF International the International Sport University (I.S.U., Tarptautinis sporto universitetas, Международный университет спорта; www.isuniversity.lt ) was established and registered in the European Union. Under the guidance of talanted administrators and scientists now it works succcessfully. In 2017 the ISU became the Associated member of the UNESCO organization at the UN (United Nations). Professor of four Universities Vasilij Bespalenko works  activelly at the International Sports University.
We work with various power sports over 50 years. In 2012 under the initiative of our representatives of Canada, India, Italy and Lithuania we established the WPSF (World Power Sports Federation).
Various International and National Social and Governmental Institutions notice huge efforts of the WFF-WBBF International. We were presenting and publishing  information on this many times. During the International Academic Conference in Lvov (Ukraine) the Rector of the International Sport University DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS received a high award. The Rector of the historically oldest Ukraine Stavropigion University Professor DSc. YAROSLAV KMIT awarded DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS for his huge International social activities with the highest University Award – the „ORDER OF MERIT“. Not long ago the same Order was presented to Kijev and Ukraine Patriarch Filaret (Патриарх Киевский и всея  Украины Филарет).
 Some time ago the Chairman Parliament Republic Slovakia Mgr. Art. Andrej Hrciar sent his congratulating words to the WFF-WBBF International and also he awarded the International President DSc. Edmundas Daubaras with the Honour Award of the Parliament Republic Slovakia. After several years we would like to remember that in 2012 in Vatican through His personal letter the Roman Pope Benedictus XVI (Benedetto XVI)  blessed the WFF-WBBF International activities.
Representing World‘s Fitness and Bodybuilding Sport the WFF-International and the WBBF-International are the only ones World Wide Officially Registered International Non Profit Sport Organizations that work well for our sport so long time. New ideas and tremendous work done for the International Sport make the WFF and WBBF to be the today’s International Leaders in Bodybuilding and Fitness World Wide. We mean the Official Level. The WFF and WBBF do not live yesterday’s life. We have lots of  new Global Bodybuilding Projects ahead.
HEALTH, SUCCESS, LUCK AND HAPPINESS IN 2020!!!
God bless all of us in our sincere pray!

2020. GRAEME LANCEFIELD TELLS LIES AGAIN.
UNINTELLIGENCE OF GRAEME LANCEFIELD SURPRISES THE BODYBUILDING WORLD.
Today the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International Headquarters received several letters and calls  from a famous UK Bodybuilder and a NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Assocoation)  Chairman EDDIE ELWOOD:
Hi, Edmundas,
as you know Graeme Lancefield is in competition with your own WFF. I want the truth be known. Daniel his son is claiming the WFF history as theirs. And I know the history you told me is yours from a show called the Amber Prix. Would you mind if you would Please Comment on my post saying you run the WFF and the 1968 history Graeme Lancefield and his WFF have stolen off you and is in fact history from a show you have ran since 1968 called the Amber prix and WFF was formed in the mid 90s with yourself and Klaus Hoffman This will clarify the birth of the WFF and help us both.
Thank you,
Eddy Ellwood
 
LIES ABOUT WFF HISTORY AND USING OUR PATENTED NAMES WILL LEAD GRAEME LANCEFIELD AND HIS ASSISTANTS TO COURT.
Working from 1968, today WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International is evident International Bodybuilding Leader. The WFF-WBBF unites National Organizations from 135 Countries, that represent all Continents. Every year WFF-WBBF organizes 60 International Events in various Countries. WFF-WBBF International Work is seen by various International Institutions. During the activities the WFF-WBBF International  received State Awards from Governments of various Countries. State Vatican as well (2011).
At the 49-th „Amber Prix International“ (2016) among present several Members of the Parliament Republic Lithuania the Official Representative of the Prime Minister Republic Lithuania ANTANAS VINKUS announced the congratulating words to the WFF-WBBF International and named the International President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS being „the Embassador Republic Lithuania in the World Countries“.
In 2016 WFF-WBBF International initiated registration of  the International Sport University (ISU). In 2012 the WFF-WBBF in various languages started unique global work – the World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia. The Encyclopedia covers information from 1898 until now and reflects the history and statistics of all traditional International Federations and important International Sportsmen and Organizers.
WEAK PERSONS ARE TO LEAVE WFF-WBBF.
We will not go into details of the WFF history. We has spoken about it widelly before. During the fivety years of the International work the WFF left a number of false persons. Some of them were from Lithuania and twenty years ago they had to leave the WFF-International due to the intriques and jealousy. Then they unsuccessfully tried to work with IFBB Lithuania and after joined the Intternational Federation of Homosexual Bodybuilders. Some of them were from Latvia and ten years ago they had to leave the WFF-International when being drunk during the WFF contest in front of the Major City Prague (Czech) behaved awfully and made problems for the WFF federation. Also the Latvians was the reason when a number of athletes had to go to hospital under surgery operation due the false „supplements“ the mentioned Latvians were producing and selling to the sportsmen (we have documents about this). These presonalities never did any strategic International work, they have never did anything sufficient Internationally during their lives. They were only the observers to the Global historic work that was done by other persons. It seems like a humour when now these persons try to make false WFF-International history and try to present it in public.
GRAEME LANCEFIELD TELLS AWFULL LIES.
We have been publishing many times the history of the WFF-International and WBBF-International federations.
Graeme Laqnciefield  is only 2-3 years in International Sport. We know, that Graeme Lancefield does not know many historical things of our sport. Basing on the false public information of Graeme Laqnciefield today a number of persons republish false materials of Graeme Lanciefield.
Does Graeme Lanciefield know what is it „1968“???
Does Graeme Lanciefield ever heard of the WFF federation in Germany before 1996???
Does Graeme Lanciefield know that «his WFF“ egzisted in Germany only from 2005 until 2013?
We think that for publishing false information Graeme Lancefield could stand in front of Court one day. Court of any Country will find the truth easy and the liar will be punnished according the Law.
LIES ABOUT WFF HISTORY AND USING OUR PATENTED NAMES WILL LEAD GRAEME LANCEFIELD AND HIS ASSISTANTS TO COURT.
It is already some time when the mentioned telltalers and loosers try to make false WFF-International history. They try to use illegally our patented names like WFF, World Fitness Federation, „Amber Prix International“, etc. Some years ago they did it too, but then we warned them about our addressing to the Court to clear the matter then they appologized in public about their illegal actions.
Gaeme Lancefield plans some contests in Lithuania and other countries in 2017. Using our patented names will lead Graeme Lancefield and his assistants to Court. Maybe through this Civil Court Prosecution Graeme Lancefield wants to sponsor the WFF-WBBF Federation???
KNOWN INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING PERSONS SAY THAT PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT WFF.
Here we present some sayings about the WFF of a number of Internationally well known Bodybuilding Presons.
1.     KLAUS P.J.HOFFMANN (in 1995 KLAUS P.J.HOFFMANN  together with DSC. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  established the WFF-International):
„You are one of the most interesting and intelligent personalities I learned to know in my life...
That‘s You!
I never gave compliments normally but You are a great fighter for You, Your family, ideas for Lithuania and maybe Europe“ (the original letter of 2004 is attached to this article).
2.     EDDIE ROBINSON (contemporary President NABBA-WFF USA, famous USA Pro Bodybuilder):
„Thank you Mr. DSc Edmundas Daubaras truth needs to be known!! We all know you are WFF!! And are sick of all the fabricated lie bull shit!!“.
„Wishing you continued success WFF Mr. DSc Edmundas Daubaras International President“.
„Much Respect to you Mr. DSc Edmundas Daubaras as I wish you nothing but The Best! Thank you for confirming the truth as the information was taken of your WFF International page per the true history of facts per the WFF, Amber Prix, Figure World Grand Prix and the forming of WFF Project“.

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.
PERIODS OF BODYBUILDING DEVELOPMENT IN SOCIALIST COUNTRIES
BODYBUILDING IN SOCIALIST WORLD. HISTORIC BOOK.
In the last period of tome International sport society started to be interested in the history of our sport. Some time ago the World learned about the first fitness athlete from the USA BRONE DUBAR (New York, 1927). The World learned about the various International Sport Organizations. Today a number of historical books and articles are published. Many of them are presenting not full and often incorrect information. For example, several years ago in Lithuania was issued a book “Lithuanian bodybuilding history” which carries facts that are not correct. Some time ago in Russia was issued a book about a famous Russia bodybuilder VLADIMIR DUBININ. For thirty  years VLADIMIR DUBININ  was the President of the National IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders)  Federation of  Russia. There are many not correct facts and interpretations on the history of the USSR bodybuilding in the book.
Until now nobody did a thorough analysis of our sport history and nobody ever underlined important facts for all World bodybuilding history.
In 2020 working more than fifty years the WFF-WBBF International (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  is planning to publish in various languages a historical book on the Bodybuilding in Socialist Countries. Remember – the Socialist World united half of the World Countries. It was living a separate individual life that was much different from the “Western” World. This book will be a part of our unique International project – the “World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia”.
PREPARED IN LITHUANIA, PRINTED IN INDIA.
The historical book on the Bodybuilding in Socialist Countries will be prepared in Lithuania and printed in India. At this work the I.S.U. International Sports University (www.isuniversity.lt ) is involved very much now. Since 2017 I.S.U. is associated member of the UNESCO at the United Nations (UN). Professors VASILIJ BESPALENKO (Ukraine), LALIT KUMAR SONI (India) and DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and World Bodybuilding Pioneer VALERIJ KORESKOV (Lithuania) are working in the project very much.
PERIODS OF BODYBUILDING DEVELOPMENT IN SOCIALIST COUNTRIES
Basing on the political situation the development of bodybuilding in the socialist countries can be divided in the folowing periods:
-          The First Period, 1958-1970
-          The Second Period, 1971-1975
-          The Third Period, 1976-1981
-          The Fourth Period, 1982-1986
-          The Fifth Period, 1987-1991
THE FIRST PERIOD
Bodybuilding in the socialist countries started at the second part of fifties of the last century. It appeared suddenly and at once became very popular. At that time a man went to cosmoss, a man went deep into the oceans. It seemed that there are no any obstacles at all. Many of people wanted to develop and change their bodies.
There was no any leadership in the socialist bodybuilding at that time.  It was the time of great popularization of bodybuilding. One of the bodybuilding pioneers in the USSR VALERIJ KORESKOV (Vilnius, Lithuania) underlines that he  started bodybuilding training in 1958. The training process was primityve, athletes needed knowlidge. From time to time contests were organized. Every time the judging criteria was different. First information about bodybuilding, famous athletes and some methods of training reached the USSR through bodybuilding magazines „Health and Strength“ and „Iron Man“ (both UK), through „Muscle Builder“(USA) and through “Sport dla Wszystkich“ (Poland).
It were Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary to start bodybuilding in the socialist countries. Bodybuilders of these countries organized local competitons and sometimes competed in between. New famous names appeared such as 1967 Czechoslovakia Champion  JURAJ VYSNY.
First to visit the mentioned countries from the USSR were the Lithuanians. In 1968 Lithuania Kaunas „Azuolas Gym“ bodybuilders  went to Warszawa to compete with „Herkules Gym“ athletes. Lithuanians were led by VYTAUTAS ZUMERIS and Polich team by EUGENIUSZ PAWLOK.
Also in 1968 the first in the USSR International Contest was organized. It was held in Lithuania Kaunas City and national teams of Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia participated there. The competiton lasted two days and six thousand spectators filled the biggest hall of the city. Then the over all Champion was LEONAS PIVORIUNAS (Vilnius, Lithuania).
After that the first „Amber Prix International“ (1968, „Gintarinis prizas“,  «Янтарный приз») contest was held in Lithuanian Klaipeda. Again the over all Champion was LEONAS PIVORIUNAS.
Every day bodybuilding became more stronger and more popular. More competitoons were organized and new names came in public. It needed to have definite leadership to give some order for the movement.  During the 1968 contest in Kaunas the „USSR Social Bodybuilding Committee“ («Общественный комитет по атлетической гимнастике СССР») was established. The positions of it‘s members were the folowing:
EXECUTIVE COUNCIL
1.     ROMAN MOROZ, Moscow, Russia
2.     VLADIMIR PETROV, Moscow, Russia
3.     GENADIJ BALDIN, Moscow, Russia
4.     VYTAUTAS ZUMERIS, Vilnius, Lithuania
5.     VALERIJ KOREŠKOV, Vilnius, Lithuania.
COMMITTEE MEMBERS
Along with the Executive Council a number of Committee Members were ellected:
6.     FIODOR MANKO, Leningrad, Russia
7.     ELEONORA VOLOKONCEVA, Leningrad, Russia
8.     VALERIJ SEMIONOV, Tiumen, Russia
9.     VLADIMIR DURNENKO, Omsk, Russia
10.EMANUILAS BEZMOZGIS, Riga, Latvia
11.ERVIN LIBERT, Tallin, Estonia.
Then it was a calm and productive period of the USSR bodybuilding. It came as a tradition and in 1969-1970 the „Amber Prix International“ contests were organized in Klaipeda.  Suddenly due to political reasons in 1971 the bodybuilding activities in the USSR and other socialist countries were stopped. For many years the Communist regime prohibited and prosecuted the bodybuilding.

2020. GRAEME LANCEFIELD TELLS LIES AGAIN.
UNINTELLIGENCE OF GRAEME LANCEFIELD SURPRISES THE BODYBUILDING WORLD.
On January 1 and January 3, 2020 the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International Headquarters received several letters and calls  from a famous UK Bodybuilder and a NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Assocoation)  Chairman EDDY ELWOOD.
EDDY ELWOOD is angry about the unintelligent behavior of GRAEME LANCEFIELD. EDDY insists that GRAEME LANCEFIELD must stop telling lies about his connections with NABBA as he has nothing to do with this great organization. GRAEME LANCEFIELD’S lies about NABBA  and WFF-WBBF history are terrible.
«Hi, Edmundas,
as you know Graeme Lancefield is in competition with your own WFF. I want the truth be known. Daniel his son is claiming the WFF history as theirs. And I know the history you told me is yours from a show called the Amber Prix. Would you mind if you would Please Comment on my post saying you run the WFF and the 1968 history Graeme Lancefield and his WFF have stolen off you and is in fact history from a show you have ran since 1968 called the Amber prix and WFF was formed in the mid 90s with yourself and Klaus Hoffman This will clarify the birth of the WFF and help us both.
Thank you,
Eddy Ellwood»
 
“Hi Edmundas,
NEWS from the original Nabba since 1950.
NABBA and WFF.
After seeing a post from Nabba India incorporating myself in a joint NABBA/WFF (Lancefield) promotion and other posts with fabricated history on!

It was necessary to post the following to show NABBAs stance with the WFF!
It was discussed at the NABBA Universe congress that NABBA has never had any affiliation with WFF (Lancefield).
NABBA is a lone non profit making amateur organisation,with democracy and a committee that decides any change democratically, we make decisions as a committee and an amalgamation of the two organisations was never voted on or approved.

Nabba has always stood alone.
The WFF (Lancefield)  and it’s fake fabricated history of 1968,was set up to organise fitness classes it has no democratic committee, their decisions are made by its President The organisation was set up by Klaus Hoffman and Edmundas Daubaras, in 1995 and not 1968 which is the fake history seen on Wikipedia without any history, it is actually stolen without permission from its organiser Edmundas Daubaras, a competition called the Amber Prix which dates back to 1968 and belongs to Edmundas! Not WFFs history?
Eventually Edmundas and Klause parted ways and if you are bothered to research it, there’s now two WFF federations,neither of which supports the other, one belonging to Edmundas,the other to Graeme Lancefield, who eventually took over from Klaus Hoffman in 2013. Graeme used his NABBA status to influence and join all NABBA countries to WFF (Lancefield)  and eventually without democracy joined it to the Nabba name , no votes were ever taken.and I have the evidence of the true history if anyone cares to see it ! When the reigns of the Nabba Presidency were handed to me, It was my duty to the members to be loyal to Nabba and assist its members to do my best for its future and remain one of the best, certainly the most historic,authentic and oldest bodybuilding federation in the world!
Without prejudice and from what I see and now know about the WFF (Lancefield), I rightly started asking questions, about the authenticity of the WF F(Lancefield)  and its 1968 history! Nabba is transparent and does not fabricate, invent,make up lies or dictate to its members, we do not support the way in which the WFF (Lancefield)  is managed! We at the original NABBA are all in agreement and we have asked for all Nabba countries to remove the Nabba name and logo from any WFF promotion! So please do not use my photo alongside any WFF (Lancefield)  promotions and please respect our decision to stand alone!
We have no problem in countries wanting to stay affiliated to both federations, but it has to be done separately.
NABBA and its members stand alone!
This is a true and accurate statement,and has the support of the Original Nabba since 1950
However any country representatives running both federations, we ask that nabba receives the same equal commitment, or somewhere close to the same support at international events.

Eddy Ellwood
Nabba international president”

 
LIES ABOUT WFF HISTORY AND USING OUR PATENTED NAMES WILL LEAD GRAEME LANCEFIELD AND HIS ASSISTANTS TO COURT.
Working from 1968, today WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International is evident International Bodybuilding Leader. The WFF-WBBF unites National Organizations from 135 Countries, that represent all Continents. Every year WFF-WBBF organizes 60 International Events in various Countries. WFF-WBBF International Work is seen by various International Institutions. During the activities the WFF-WBBF International  received State Awards from Governments of various Countries. State Vatican as well (2011).
At the 49-th „Amber Prix International“ (2016) among present several Members of the Parliament Republic Lithuania the Official Representative of the Prime Minister Republic Lithuania ANTANAS VINKUS announced the congratulating words to the WFF-WBBF International and named the International President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS being „the Embassador Republic Lithuania in the World Countries“.
In 2016 WFF-WBBF International initiated registration of  the International Sport University (ISU). In 2012 the WFF-WBBF in various languages started unique global work – the World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia. The Encyclopedia covers information from 1898 until now and reflects the history and statistics of all traditional International Federations and important International Sportsmen and Organizers.
WEAK PERSONS ARE TO LEAVE WFF-WBBF.
We will not go into details of the WFF history. We has spoken about it widelly before. During the fivety years of the International work the WFF left a number of false persons. Some of them were from Lithuania and twenty years ago they had to leave the WFF-International due to the intriques and jealousy. Then they unsuccessfully tried to work with IFBB Lithuania and after joined the Intternational Federation of Homosexual Bodybuilders. Some of them were from Latvia and ten years ago they had to leave the WFF-International when being drunk during the WFF contest in front of the Major City Prague (Czech) behaved awfully and made problems for the WFF federation. Also the Latvians was the reason when a number of athletes had to go to hospital under surgery operation due the false „supplements“ the mentioned Latvians were producing and selling to the sportsmen (we have documents about this). These presonalities never did any strategic International work, they have never did anything sufficient Internationally during their lives. They were only the observers to the Global historic work that was done by other persons. It seems like a humour when now these persons try to make false WFF-International history and try to present it in public.
GRAEME LANCEFIELD TELLS AWFULL LIES.
We have been publishing many times the history of the WFF-International and WBBF-International federations.
Graeme Laqnciefield  is only 2-3 years in International Sport. We know, that Graeme Lancefield does not know many historical things of our sport. Basing on the false public information of Graeme Laqnciefield today a number of persons republish false materials of Graeme Lanciefield.
Does Graeme Lanciefield know what is it „1968“???
Does Graeme Lanciefield ever heard of the WFF federation in Germany before 1996???
Does Graeme Lanciefield know that «his WFF“ egzisted in Germany only from 2005 until 2013?
We think that for publishing false information Graeme Lancefield could stand in front of Court one day. Court of any Country will find the truth easy and the liar will be punnished according the Law.
LIES ABOUT WFF HISTORY AND USING OUR PATENTED NAMES WILL LEAD GRAEME LANCEFIELD AND HIS ASSISTANTS TO COURT.
It is already some time when the mentioned telltalers and loosers try to make false WFF-International history. They try to use illegally our patented names like WFF, World Fitness Federation, „Amber Prix International“, etc. Some years ago they did it too, but then we warned them about our addressing to the Court to clear the matter then they appologized in public about their illegal actions.
Gaeme Lancefield plans some contests in Lithuania and other countries in 2017. Using our patented names will lead Graeme Lancefield and his assistants to Court. Maybe through this Civil Court Prosecution Graeme Lancefield wants to sponsor the WFF-WBBF Federation???
KNOWN INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING PERSONS SAY THAT PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT WFF.
Here we present some sayings about the WFF of a number of Internationally well known Bodybuilding Presons.
1.     KLAUS P.J.HOFFMANN (in 1995 KLAUS P.J.HOFFMANN  together with DSC. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  established the WFF-International):
„You are one of the most interesting and intelligent personalities I learned to know in my life...
That‘s You!
I never gave compliments normally but You are a great fighter for You, Your family, ideas for Lithuania and maybe Europe“ (the original letter of 2004 is attached to this article).
2.     EDDIE ROBINSON (contemporary President NABBA-WFF USA, famous USA Pro Bodybuilder):
„Thank you Mr. DSc Edmundas Daubaras truth needs to be known!! We all know you are WFF!! And are sick of all the fabricated lie bull shit!!“.
„Wishing you continued success WFF Mr. DSc Edmundas Daubaras International President“.
„Much Respect to you Mr. DSc Edmundas Daubaras as I wish you nothing but The Best! Thank you for confirming the truth as the information was taken of your WFF International page per the true history of facts per the WFF, Amber Prix, Figure World Grand Prix and the forming of WFF Project“.

1970 INTERNETIONAL CONGRESS SETS UP IFBB.
WEIDER TELLS WHAT IFBB WAS DOING 25 YEARS.
We will underline a very important happening to the International movement of bodybuilding sport. That was the first IFBB International Congress (September 4, 1970, Belgrade, Yugoslavia, official documents any can find at the IFBB official page: http://www.ifbbpro.com/1970-congress/). For the next several decades this Congress influenced the official work for the bodybuilding recoignition on official level.
Any could envy the friendship of OSCAR STATE, who was a close friend of the IFBB Owner and President BEN WEIDER. OSCAR STATE was the General Secretary of the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF). He knew very well all aspects of the official International sports. OSCAR STATE teached and by his advices led BEN WEIDER  to the official International recognition. To register an International Federation on official level a number of cetrain procedures had to be done first:
-          there should be a comparitively big number of the national representatives in the countries;
-          to organize regularly at least a number of International competitons;
-          to call the International Congress to ellect the President and the leading stuff;
-          to set and adobe the Constitution and the judging rules.
This was done at the 1970 IFBB Congress in Belgrade. IFBB declared it represents fifty seven Countries. Twenty five of those Countries were present at the Congress. OSCAR STATE suggested to ellect BEN WEIDER  as „Life President“ of the IFBB and that was done then. The formalities done at the Belgrade Congress opened doors for the IFBB to join the International society of official recognized sports. In 1971 the IFBB joined the GAISF General Association of International Sports Federations. As BEN WEIDER  spoke, only the assistance of OSCAR STATE made this possible. Entering the GAISF the IFBB for long years left all othef International bodybuilding organizations behind. Membership in GAISF gave to the IFBB recognition and financial support of the Sport Ministries of a number of Countries. According to the GAISF rules one kind of sport can be represented by only one International sport federation. This made impossible for other bodybuilding organizations to seek the governmental support and recognition. It took decades until the World learned the real juridical and financial truth about the IFBB.
IFBB declares it‘s activities since 1946. Even then at Belgrade Congress there were questions about what the IFBB was doing until 1970? In the 1971 December issue of his magazine BEN WEIDER explains that 25 years the IFBB was collecting countries to join the IFBB.... Read below this great explanation!
„Many people have wondered what was happening within the IFBB between 1946, when the IFBB was founded by Ben and Joe in Montreal, and the 1st IFBB International Congress in 1970. In the December 1971 issue of „MUSCLE BUILDER / POWER“, in a guest editorial written by Ben Weider called "Come on in, the water’s fine", Ben states, "During the intervening years, I traveled to more than 90 countries and my brother to more than 40 on behalf of bodybuilding." Ben goes on to say, "Between the years 1946 and 1971, we succeeded in getting 57 nations to affiliate."

IMPRISONED WITH NOBEL PRIZE OWNER ALEKSANDR SOLZHENITSYN.
GEORG TENNO – ESTONIA HEROE OF SOVIET TIMES.
SOCIALIST WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.
In the sixties of the last century the greatest bodybuilding propaganda in the USSR was made by the Estonian weightlifter GEORG TENNO (Георгий Тэнно). GEORG TENNO was a former navy officer and participant of the Second World War. In 1948 due to a false accusement of spying against the USSR GEORG TENNO was arrested and sentenced to eight years imprisonment. It happened that GEORG TENNO was placed in the same prison cell together with the USSR disident ALEKSANDR SOLZHENITSYN  (Александр Солженицын). During the imprisonment GEORG TENNO made five unsuccessfull attempts to run away. There is a story about GEORG TENNO in the famous book of ALEKSANDR SOLZHENITSYN „Arkhipelag Gulag“ named „The Runaway“ “ («Убежденный беглец»). About GEORG TENNO ALEKSANDR SOLZHENITSYN wrote: „He was the most stronger and the most brave of us...“. In 1970 Nobel Committee awarded ALEKSANDR SOLZHENITSYN with the Nobel Prize in Literature.
Ending the fifties of the last century GEORGIJ TENNO was released from the prison. He started working at the USSR Institute of Scientific Studies of the Physical Culture (ВНИИФК, Всесоюзный научно исследовательский институт физической культуры).
In 1968 GEORG TENNO published his book „The Athletism“ («Атлетизм»). At once it became very popular. The book was full of information: training methods, recupperation after workouts and various diets. At that time this was a unique information. Though GEORG TENNO did not speak about the sources of his knowlidge but it was evident he used various foreign literature. The work at the institute gave him such opportunities. After imprisonment GEORG TENNO knew very well all political moments and he was carefull. Due to this in his book he wrote that „bodybuilding is not to stay in fron of a mirror. Bodybuilding is to strenthen the muscles that will serve to the country“.
Suddenly when the prosecution of bodybuilding started GEORG TENNO  died in an accident. Who knows - maybe it was an accidental death.
To remember GEORG TENNO Estonians started organizing the „Georg Tenno Memorial“ («Мемориал Георга Тенно») contest in 1971. Fourteen Memorials were organized until 1989. For long years of the bodybuilding prohibition and prosecution in the Socialist Countries  „Georg Tenno Memorial“ and the historic „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis Prizas“, «Янтарный приз», 1968-2019) were the only one regular bodybuilding competitons in the Socialist Countries.
Remark: documents of the „Georg Tenno Memorial“ are kept in the archieves of the WFF-WBBF International Federation.

2020. ARAB COUNTRIES WELCOMED AT WFF-WBBF.
MORE ORDER WILL COME IN INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING CHAOS.
 
During the last decades the International WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) writes a lot about the so called “International federations” that are not legal and work unofficial way. Athletes use to participate at such federations as most of them do not know the juridical truth.
Some time ago the Chairman of the Arab Physical Culture Federation (APCF, based in Beirut, Lebanon) Professor Dr. FAWZI KHODARI addressed the WFF-WBBF International President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS, asking to join the WFF-WBBF activities.
 
The International President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS responded positively:
Klaipeda, Republic Lithuania
Dear friend,
Thank You for Your letter.
My name is Edmundas Daubaras, Doctor Honoris Causa, Rector of the International Sport University (I.S.U.), President of the World Fitness Federation (W.F.F.), President of the World Body Building Federation (W.B.B.F.), President of the World Power Sports Federation (WPSF), Vice President “Regina Welfare Cancer Society”, and international journalist. After graduating from the Vilnius Vytautas the Great University in the specialties of philology and law, I was presented by the Lvov Stavropigeon University with the highest academic degree of the Doctor Honoris Causa in 2012. I received many awards during the decades of my work, some of which include:   the  „Order of St. Stanislaw“ (2018, Republic of Poland), the “Order of Ukraine Getman Ivan Sulima” (2018, Republic of Ukraine), the Order of Christ (2017, Lvov, Ukraine), the Honour Medal of the Parliament of the Slovak Republic (2013, Bratislava, Slovak Republic), the Honour Medal of the Lvov Stavropigeon University (2012, Republic Ukraine), the Medaglia Ufficiale di Pontificato di Sua Santita Benedetto XVI (2011, Vatican), for confronting the communist regime, the St. Nicholas the Wonderworker Silver-Gold Medal (2010, Coimbra, Portugal) for the ideas uniting World’s religions, and the Order of Auseklis (2009, Riga, Latvia) for international sport development. In 2008, together with the Governor of the State of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, I was included to the Honour Book of the Kingdom of Denmark and also received the international John Grimek Premium (2005, Italy).
Free from politics and open to all religions, the World Fitness Federation and the World Body Building Federation run their history from 1968. During the last thirty years, the above mentioned federations were growing rapidly and today they unite 128 country members from all continents. The most active countries are Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Russia, Germany, Poland, Benelux and the Baltic States, India and Japan. Different from other private companies and organizations, our federations are social non-profit unions. The official WFF and WBBF International page online, www.wff.lt, attracts lots of visitors every day as no other sport organization in the world seeks official sport development.
Since 1989, the WFF and WBBF has been issuing the Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding magazine in various languages and spreading them free of charge in the countries that are members of the WFF and WBBF. Also the mentioned magazines are spread during the world’s most important international contests worldwide.
In order to continue developing the international sport and helping people and sportsmen gain wider knowledge, we opened and registered the International Sport University (I.S.U.) in the EU in 2016. In 2017 the I.S.U. professors will give teaching seminars and lectures in the Republic of South Africa, Russian Federation, Baltic States, India and Turkey.
Despite the WFF and WBBF being free of politics, politicians of many countries acknowledge our work and support our international activities. Among those who have supported us are: Professor Alfred Gerstl (President of the Parliament of the Republic of Austria), Robert Fico (Prime minister of the Slovak Republic), Gediminas Kirkilas (Prime minister of the Republic of Lithuania 2006-2008), and Algirdas Butkevicius (Prime minister of the Republic of Lithuania 2012-2016). Parliament of the Republic of Lithuania voted to finance one of the world‘s oldest traditional WFF and WBBF contests, „Amber Prix International“, and organized a number of official meetings with the chairmen of the WFF and WBBF International.
Every year, the WFF and WBBF organize around sixty international events in various countries. The work of the WFF and WBBF International involves various activities, such as disabled sport, the Fit-kid sport starting from 6 years of age, power fitness, model fitness, aerobic fitness, and traditional bodybuilding.  The WFF-WBBF pays great attention to the division of working with disabled sportsmen.
In Your letter You are wishing to join our activities. We can work together. What are Your ideas about that?
Yours,
DSc. Edmundas Daubaras.”

2020. WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.
WHY SO MUCH LIES AROUND?
Since 2012 the WFF-WBBF International (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) works on the „World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia“ which will cover the period of the last 130 years. Also at the moment we work on the book about the bodybuilding in the Socialist World. In various languages we are studying historic materials. There we found unbelievable stories about the history of bodybuilding. Everywhere with some exceptions we found lies. It is possible to understand when new „leaders“ want to rise themselves by diminishing the previous ones. Often the new ones even do not mention the previous leaders at all.
America. This way in the USA are forgotten the real American historic heroes of our sport. But these forgotten heroes of the USA bodybuilding were accepted at the White House by three USA Presidents! Everybody reads only the unreal history of the commercial „WEIDER‘s Empire“.
Europe. Let us speak about the Europe.  Comparing with the NABBA  (National Amateur Body Building Association) nothing historically important happened. And again –NABBA after the death of their Leader OSCAR HEIDENSTAM last thirty years had no other real head of this level.
Another World. This was a Picture of the „Western“ world. But there was another world, the „Socialist“ one. For seventy years both „worlds“ were didvided by the „Iron Wall“ and lived separate life. The situation in the history of bodybuilding of the Socialist world is the same. We will not discuss here about the poor „poets“ who sing the unreal songs about the „WEIDER Empire“. Just to start - members of the 1968 historic USSR bodybuilding Council are forgotten. At the same time new „leaders“ are telling lies about their participation in the historic events, such as one from Tiumen and another from Sankt Peterburg (both Russian). Again articles are written, books issued about these false leaders and their false stories.
We will do our best to refresh the memories and to cover all important historic matters.

2020. WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.
IFBB AND NABBA SEVENTY YEARS AGO.
Nothing is better than the historic letter of JULIAN BLOMMAERT to BEN WEIDER speaking about the International bodybuilding of the end of seventies and of the beginning of eighties of the last century. On October 1, 1971 the IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) Europe Chairman JULIAN BLOMMAERT (Belgium) wrote a letter to the owner and the „Life President“ of the IFBB BEN WEIDER.
Note: in 1985 the above mentioned letter as well as other numerous historic and juridical documents were sent by SERGE NUBRET to the contemporary International President WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. World bodybuilding legend SERGE NUBRET was appointed to the position of the IFBB Vice President at the 1970 Belgrade Congress in Jugoslavia. In 1976 SERGE NUBRET set the WABBA (World Amateur Body Building Association). SERGE NUBRET thought it will be safe to send the documents to  DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS who may use them to make the situation in bodybuilding more open to public. The documents are kept in the archieves of the International WFF-WBBF federation.
In the letter of JULIAN BLOMMAERT the situation in IFBB and NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Association) is spoken over. At that time in the „Western“ World  IFBB and NABBA were the two basic International bodybuilding organizations. In 1968 in the Socialist World the first International Bodybuilding organization was set and that was the „USSR Bodybuilding Committee“. Also in 1968 the historic „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, «Янтарный приз») bodybuilding contest started.
JULIAN BLOMMAERT writes in his letter about the 12-th IFBB „Mr.Universe“ (1971). Then the winners were GIUSEPPE DEIANA (Belgium), brother of JULIAN BLOMAERT KARL BLOMAERT and ALBERT BECKLES (UK). He feels sad about the fact that NABBA man ALBERT BECKLES won the over all title. JULIAN BLOMMAERT  writes that the IFBB „Mr. UNiverse“ was terrible that time and the level of competitors was very bad. After the contest there was a fight and a number of people were taken to hospital.
Also JULIAN BLOMMAERT speaks about bad judging. He accuses representatives of Communist Countries, Arab and Orinent Countries who organized their block at the 1970 IFBB Belgrade Congress. He writes that all of them are only dressed like people but in fact they are not civilized.
In the same letter JULIAN BLOMMAERT comments the 1971 NABBA „Mr. Universe“ competition. He thinks that the NABBA position is bright. World‘s best elite bodybuilders are with NABBA: CHRIS DICKERSON, SERGIO OLIVA, BILL PEARL, FRANK ZANE, KEN WALLER, REG PARK etc..
JULIAN BLOMMAERT accused BEN WEIDER of taking important decissions alone. He thinks it is bad for IFBB reputation. He asks BEN WEIDER to awake otherwise everybody will run away from IFBB and only he and JULIAN BLOMMAERT will remain.

2020. WE ARE NOT INDIFFERENT TO REQUESTS.
HIGHEST INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING ADVISORY COUNCIL.
53 years working WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International is directly connected with the „Amber Prix International“ («Янтарный приз», „Gintarinia prizas“, 1968-2020) contest. „Amber Prix International“ is one of the World‘s oldest traditional historic competition still organized in Lithuania. The value of the „Amber Prix International“ was alvays evident and always many known sport organizers of various Countries use to be present there.
It happened so that through all history of the WFF-WBBF good relations of the International WFF-WBBF President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and the historic leaders  of the all main traditional International Bodybuilding organizations were in the background. And that were the Owner and the President of International IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) BEN WEIDER, the President of NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Association) OSCAR HEIDENSTAM, the President of WABBA (World Amateur Body Building Association) International SERGE NUBRET.
There were momonts in the history of the World Bodybuilding when the International leaders connected DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS for friendly assistance.
In 1970 at the IFBB Belgrade (Yugoslavia) International Conmgress SERGE NUBRET was appointed to the position of the IFBB Vice President. In 1976 SERGE NUBRET set another International organization of WABBA as he explains „to fight with the IFBB“. Then the conflict between BEN WEIDER  and SERGE NUBRET reached the highest point in the Court then in 1985 SERGE NUBRET  sent to DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS twenty pages of the confident IFBB documents asking to support him. That was very personal information about BEN WEIDER  and we never published this anywhere.
The IFBB International and the IFBB USSR (established in 1987) as well always were suffering of inside intriques and conflicts. First let us remember the famous weightlifting Olympic Champion JURIJ VLASOV (Юрий Власов)  and how badly he was treated when he was elected to the position of the President of the USSR Bodybuilding Federation. In 1991 President of the USSR Bodybuilding Federation VASILIJ CHAIKOVSKI (Василий Чайковский) was removed from his position by VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин). Feeling frustrated of this unfair action VASILIJ CHAIKOVSKIJ immediatelly came to Lithuania. He was looking for support of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS in his relations with BEN WEIDER.
Fifteen years ago understanding that International Bodybuilding Sport is in awful situation WEIDER brothers JOE and BEN sold their magazines and „Olympia“  Contest and got rid of the IFBB. After this WAYNE DE MILIA was dismissed from the position of the Director of the IFBB Professional League. Until that he run this position for many years. Then in 2006 WAYNE DE MILIA established his own organization „Pro Division Inc.“ and addressed DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to support him. From that time we have heard nothing about „Pro Division Inc.“.
Fighting in between in 2009  and in 2015 IFBB split two times. First IFBB was divided between Assistant of BEN WEIDER Spanish RAFAEL SANTONJA  and the IFBB Vice President PAUL CHUA from Singapore. At taht moment PAUL CHUA was supported only by Asia and Arab Countries. Then PAUL CHUA  and Sheikh of UAE AL SHAFAR came to London (UK) to fight with RAFAEL SANTONJA in the Court. PAUL CHUA  addressed DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to support him, but DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS could not come to London as there was European Championship in Lithuania at that time. Also PAUL CHUA and Sheikh AL SHAFAR could not come to Lithuania as they had no EU visas. The deal was closed. Some time leter PAUL CHUA and the IFBB Lower ALEX BAUER (Austria) sent 600 pages of IFBB juridical and financial documents and asked to publish them. We did it as they asked.
Some years ago Australian GRAEME LANCEFIELD established his WFF federation. He started collecting NABBA athletes to his own contests using the NABBA name. NABBA leaders were angry about this. Then in 2018 the President of the NABBA USA and a famous IFBB professional bodybuilder EDDIE ROBINSON  adressed DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to support NABBA in fighting against unfair behaviour of GRAEME LANCEFIELD. After this GRAEME LANCEFIELD continued acting against NABBA. At the beginning of 2020 the President NABBA International and a famus UK Professional bodybuilder ED ELWOOD asked DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to support NABBA against GRAEME LANCEFIELD again. To help NABBA we wrote and published a thorough article about this.
Diferent of other International Bodybuilding Organizations today WFF-WBBF seeks huge aims to make bodybuilding recognized and respected. Our sport besame so much commercial that today we are the only ones to fulfill the old dreams of BEN WEIDER.

2020. LEARN REAL HISTORY OF WORLD BODYBUILDING.
BRONE DUBAR
BRONE DUBAR (Broné “Brownie” Dubar, Daubaraite, 1906-1986) together with her parents and four brothers emigrated from Lithuania to the US in 1912. Coming from a family of athletes and thinkers, she believed in the importance of an educated mind and a healthy body. Her brothers were all accomplished athletes, playing in amateur as well as in  professional areas of sport: Boxing, Hockey, Skating and Baseball.  Chess and books were always a steady diet in the DUBAR  household. BRONE DUBAR found swimming and diving to be a natural fit for her and participated in events during high school. Though there were no fitness sport and fitness contests at that time today sport specialists say that BRONE DUBAR was the first fitness athlete in the history. At a time when sport of fitness for women was not common and the first women's Olympics had only been sanctioned in 1920, she would compete or perform whenever she could. This was the reason that fitness performances of BRONE DUBAR were not accepted as sport at that time. By the 1920's BRONE DUBAR was touring and working as an acrobatic and gymnastic dancer. She also promoted women's health and fitness by traveling and putting on one woman and small athletic demonstrations. As a show woman, she considered the impacts of her demonstrations and how to grab the audience's attention, including adding stunts to her repertoire. Show programs of BRONE DUBAR were original. At one demonstration, hosted at a local YMCA, she jumped from a second story balcony above the crowd and dove headlong into a small lap pool as part of her demonstration. BRONE DUBAR incorporated fitness into her acts of performance and frequently headlined as an acrobatic and gymnastic dancer.  She often incorporated physical movement familiar to modern viewers as yoga and calisthenics along with examples of natural body strength movement.  BRONE’S DUBAR demonstration bookings took her to all corners of the US. From New York to Seattle and from Ohio to California and many places between.  Remember that all World bodybuilding pioneers did the same – they traveled in the countries to perform their power programs in public. Most World’s known bodybuilding pioneers did this. In America that were LOUIS CYR (1863-1912 m.) and CHARLES ATLAS (Angelo Siciliano, 1893-1972 m.). BRONE DUBAR primarily was involved in athletic demonstrations from a few years before the 1920's through the 1930's until the war changed the entertainment industry and doomed traveling shows to history. Today many local newspaper archives in the US from the time contain ads for her acts as well as her demonstrations as evidence of her activities.
A very classy woman, BRONE DUBAR learned to be a seamstress when she was young and always dressed immaculately as a result and would sew the latest fashions for herself. Even in advanced age, she looked like she just stepped off the pages of Vogue Magazine.
BRONE DUBAR was not only a woman before her time, but if her history is known and shared, should inspire young woman to seek and excel at athletics and fitness. She has inspired more than one generation in her own family to follow into the World of athletics on both sides of the Atlantic.

There were ten American athletes and twenty from the U.S.S.R. side. We will not speak about the competition itself as many participants of is did it many times. We will speak about the facts which remained unknown for thirty years.
That was the first time in the history when U.S.A. bodybuilders visited the U.S.S.R.. Both sides made great preparations for the event. Organizers, trainers, athletes worked a lot. Also worked and special secret services, like K.G.B.. Everybody expected that together with U.S.A. bodybuilders the owner and the President of the I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) BEN WEIDER will visit the U.S.S.R. too.
LOUIS ZWICK.
In 2002 President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS met his old friend American LOUIS ZWICK in German Stuttgart. At that time LOUIS ZWICK was a known organizer of International contests like “America Pageant”, “Fame”, “Hit the Rock” etc.. LOUIS ZWICK was not only organizer of these contests. He also was a producer of the television that was working at this event in Germany too. LOUIS ZWICK organized this competition as well as all other just to make a film of it and after to sell the reports to the American sport ESPN television.
INITIATOR OF THE 1989 BODYBUILDING CONTEST “U.S.S.R. VERSUS U.S.A.”.
In 2002 in Germany LOUIS ZWICK organized a very specific contest. He named it “European Championship”. He brought from America to Germany a number of athletes and all those athletes took first six places among top competitors. Participating German sportsmen were only like a decoration for Americans. Again the contest was filmed. The interviews of American athletes and some spectators were taken.
As DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS knew LOUIS ZWICK since 1989 first visit of the U.S.A. bodybuilders to the U.S.S.R. both have spoken on various topics. Among them was the historic 1989 contest “U.S.S.R. versus U.S.A.”. LOUIS ZWICK surprised saying he was the initiator from America side of this competition in1989. He was selecting every participant personally discussing the individual conditions of his participation in the U.S.S.R.. Finally he collected the necessary team of bodybuilders. LOUIS ZWICK was taking a big financial risk. Having no his personal money LOUIS ZWICK rented the necessary money from the bank to pay all costs of the event from the American athletes side. Nobody knew what will happen…
RUNAWAYS.
At that time for a number of years the best U.S.S.R. bodybuilder was VIKTORAS JUCYS from Klaipeda (Lithuania). It seemed he must participate against Americans in 1989 Leningrad competition.   But the plans of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS who was the trainer and sponsor of VIKTORAS JUCYS  were different. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was thinking of his personal meeting with BEN WEIDER  and their discussion of the future plans of common work.  Both DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and BEN WEIDR  were in close correspondence for long years and both were waiting for the moment of meeting.
At the backstage of the “U.S.S.R. – U.S.A.” contest in Leningrad was a group of U.S.A. television men. They were filming the event. Speaking with one of them (later we learned that he was LOUIS ZWICK) DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS told him  that the best U.S.S.R. bodybuilders ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS (Siauliai, Lithuania)  and VIKTORAS JUCYS are present at the event but they will not participate. LOUIS ZWICK was surprised about this and invited all three of us to shoot a film next day.
AMERICAN FILMS.
Next morning DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS took VIKTORAS JUCYS  and ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS down of the hotel to meet the LOUIS ZWICK  and his filming men. Americans explained that they are followed by people from secret services, like K.G.B. and they want all of us to run away from them. Only then the filming will be free of political pressure and represent reality. So we did. We jumped into a free minibus “Latvia” which was close to the hotel and left. We went to a primitive old bodybuilding gym in the suburbs of Leningrad City. Nobody was there but few local athletes. An interview of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was taken and training of VIKTORAS JUCYS  and ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS was filmed. LOUIS CWICK asked VIKTORAS JUCYS to end the filming with some words in English. Tought by DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS he said: “America – we will pump You up!”.
Later about the contest “U.S.S.R. versus U.S.A.”, about training of the best U.S.S.R. bodybuilders VIKTORAS JUCYS  and ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS, about the life in the USSR  LOUIS ZWICK made several films. Those films he successfully sold the  E.S.P.N. television in America and covered his expenses for the U.S.A. bodybuilding team. Later LOUIS ZWICK  sent those films to DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS (films are kept in the archives of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International).
TROJKA. INVITATION TO PARIS.
To meet BEN WEIDER DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS succeeded only after the contest “S.S.S.R. versus U.S.A.”. That was in restaurant “Trojka” where the organizers made a banquet for V.I.P. Persons. Both DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and BEN WEIDER  were sitting close together and had several hours to discuss the matters both of them planned to as both decided not to discuss this in their correspondence. Ending the discussion BEN WEIDER invited DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to be his personal guest at the coming World Championship in Paris (France). And this happened as decided.
ON THE KNEES U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING FEDERATION GENERAL SECRETARY.
Just before the meeting of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  and BEN WEIDER a meeting of the U.S.S.R. bodybuilding organizers had happened. It was in the hotel of Leningrad. At this meeting participated DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS, the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation General Secretary, ALEKSANDRAS NOVIKOVAS, RAMUTIS KAIRAITIS (Both Officials of the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation) and today‘s famous photo artist ALGIMANTAS ALEKSANDRAVICIUS and the best U.S.S.R. bodybuilder at that time VIKTORAS JUCYS. Learned about the coming meeting of the DSc. EDMUDAS DAUBARAS with BEN WEIDER, the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation General Secretary insisted that he is intending to come with him too. Then DSc.EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS refused as he did not wanted to have any problems with the U.S.S.R. secret services. DSC. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS inumerated  „bad deals“ of the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation General Secretary that were done in previous years. That were through the U.S.S.R. secret services (K.G.B.) ruined in 1979 International contest the ”U.S.S.R. versus Czechoslovakia” (documents are in the archives of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International), in 1988 ruined participation of a number of the best U.S.S.R. bodybuilders at the World Championship in Australia. Also DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS reminded the prohibition of ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS to participate at the Georg Tenno Memorial in Estonia and other intrigues of the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation General Secretary. Then the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation General Secretary started crying and knelt on the knees begging to forget those things.

AFTER  70 YEARS WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY WAS REPEATED.
1927 BRONE DAUBARAITE AND 1997 EDITA DAUBARAITE.
International sport society knows very well about the U.S.A. sportsman BRONE DAUBARAITE (Broné “Brownie” Dubar, 1906-1986 m.). Emigrated from Lithuania before the First World War she was the World’s First Fitness Athlete. At that time there was no bodybuilding and fitness sport and BRONE DAUBARAITE did not participate at the competitions. As many athletes and strongmen of her time she travelled though the World Countries and demonstrated her unique sport programs.
„EUROSPORT“ REPORTS ABOUT OVER ALL WORLD CHAMPION.
After seventy years in 1997 Lithuanian gymnastic athlete EDITA DAUBARAITE repeated her grandmother’s BORNE DAUBARAITE achievements. She became the over all World Fitness Champion. That was the first time when a representative from the previous socialist world won such a title. The event was televised by “Eurosport” television several times. Then “Eurosport” spoke much about the EDITA’S gymnastic abilities and International press wrote much about the Lithuanian sportsman. The Ministry of Sport Republic Lithuania started steps to present EDITA DAUBARAITE a high Governmental Award. Unfortunately intrigues did not let to happen this.
Later representing Post Socialist Countries Slovak MARIETA ZIGALOVA (Marieta Žigalova) and  Polish ALEKSANDRA KOBIELAK became the Over All World Fitness Champions too. But it was later.
At this moment EDITA DAUBARAITE (Sendriene) leads the International Judges Committee of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) federation. She is the Director of the Administration of the International Sport University (I.S.U.).
