INT. BODYBUILDING AND FITNESS ORGANIZATIONS
2022. 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 50 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», 1968-2022). 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 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 I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders)  Federation of  Russia. There are many not correct facts and interpretations on the history of the U.S.S.R. 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 U.S.S.R. 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 U.S.S.R.. 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” (1968-2022, “Gintarinis prizas”, «Янтарный приз»). Participating at the 1991 “Mr. Ural” Contest contemporary President of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (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 U.S.S.R. bodybuilders participated teams of Germany, Holland and U.S.A. – the judges were only of the U.S.S.R. 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 U.S.S.R. 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 U.S.S.R. 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 U.S.S.R.. 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 U.S.S.R.. Only the trade unions of the U.S.S.R. were giving special licences for the best workers to buy these things. For German, Holland and U.S.A. participants of the 1991 “Mr. Ural” these carpets were of no value. But the representatives of the U.S.S.R. looked upon this differently. For them the carpets were of great value.  A scandal started during the award ceremony. German, Holland and the U.S.A. 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 U.S.A. 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 I.F.B.B. World Champion in Moscow. By the way the 2004 I.F.B.B. 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 U.S.S.R. 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 U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation VLADIMIR DUBININ. Then a special Congress of the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation Council was announced. The Congress put punishment to the 1991 “Mr. Ural” organizer  ALTAF GALEJEV. Then ALTAF GALEJEV left the I.F.B.B. and started working with another International Federation.

2022. WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.
PRAVOSLAV ORTODOX CHURCH AWARDED AND VATICAN NAMED DISIDENTS.
PREVIEW. TIME OF PROHIBITION AND PROSECUTION OF BODYBUILDING.
Due to political reasons in the early seventies of the last century for nearly two decades bodybuilding was prohibited and prosecuted in the Socialits Countries, especially in the U.S.S.R.. Most bodybuilding leaders got afrayed and stepped away, but not all of them. Among them was DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS who on his own risk began the dialoque with the U.S.S.R. Communist Party Central Committee, the U.S.S.R. Government, the U.S.S.R. Sport Ministry (Goskomsport, Госкомспорт С.С.С.Р.) administration and the most important communist press – Newspapers „Pravda“, „Izvestija“ and „Sovietskij Sport“ («Правда», «Известия», «Советский спорт»). DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wrote letters, spoke on phone with them and finally personally went to Moscow (Russian Federation) to present the officially registered bodybuilding defending letters to the Headquarters of the mentioned above Institutions. Those letters of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  was like real „petitions“ of bodybuilding.
Nobody stopped the prohibition and the prosecution of bodybuilding, but they gave permittion for DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  to go on organizing „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis Prizas“, „Янтарный приз») Contest in Klaipeda (Lithuania). In fact the „Amber Prix International“ was an unofficial U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship and this was later accepted by the U.S.S.R. Sport Ministry when it began presenting honourable „U.S.S.R. Sport Master“ names for the „Amber Prix International“ Champions. They say, the „Amber Prix International“ was the World Champiosnip of the Socialist Countries. World level Contests in the Western Countries were no higher in the level of bodybuilders and in the level of organisation, number of the participating Countries and number of participating Athletes. In some aspects „Amber Prix International“ was even higher that those in the West.        
VATICAN NAMES BODYBUILDING DISIDENTS.
In 2011 the Official Meeting of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) Interantional Leaders was organized in Vatican Headquarters to present the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. activities.
Listening about the bodybuilding activities during the years of prohibition of this sport in the Socialist Countries Vatican Congregat Perfect J. Em. JOZEF KARDINAL TOMKO was interested very much. The Congregat evaluated our efforts and named us „disidents of the Communist regime“.
Most impressive was the Vatican State evaluation of the positive work of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. in developing total fitness and bodybuilding throughout the World. For this work done the Vatican Congregat Perfect J. Em. JOZEF KARDINAL TOMKO presented the Vatican Pontific Medal (Medaglia Ufficiale di Pontificato di Sua Santita Benedetto XVI) to the International President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS (Headquarters State Vatican, Cita del Vaticano, March 29, 2011).
During the Official Visit to Vatican the Vatican State Administrator PADRE PAOLO presented the the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Officials the Vatican Administration Headquarters, the Closed Historic Treasure Archieves and the Storage Place of the historically valuable personal items of all Pontifics of Vatican State. Early morning at St. Peter‘s Basilica the President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS participated at the unique personal Mess.
RESPECTFUL BLESSING FROM VATICAN.
In 2012 the W.F.F.  – W.B.B.F. International Headquarters received a letter from the State Vatican.
Sending this Honourable Blessing Letter the Pontific BENEDETTO XVI-th once again positively evaluated the efforts of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International.

GOOD WORK NOTICED BY PROVOSLAV ORTODOX CHURCH.
The good and positive work done by the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International was noticed by the Pravoslav Ortodox Church too.
In 2010 the IV-th International Convent of the Order of Temple (O.S.M.T.H., Ordo Supremus Militaris Templi Herosolymitani) was held in Coimbra (Portugal).
In recognition of the new ideas to unite all Christian Confessions Bishop ARCHIMANDRITE CHARALAMPY awarded DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS with „The St. Nicholas the Wonderworker’s Silver-Gold Medal“.

2022. WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.
WE ARE NOT INDIFFERENT TO REQUESTS.
HIGHEST INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING ADVISORY COUNCIL.
55 years working W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International is directly connected with the „Amber Prix International“ («Янтарный приз», „Gintarinia prizas“, 1968-2021) 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 W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. good relations of the International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. 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 I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) BEN WEIDER, the President of N.A.B.B.A. (National Amateur Body Building Association) OSCAR HEIDENSTAM, the President of W.A.B.B.A. (World Amateur Body Building Association) International SERGE NUBRET.
There were moments in the history of the World Bodybuilding when the International leaders connected DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS for friendly assistance.
In 1970 at the I.F.B.B. Belgrade (Yugoslavia) International Congress SERGE NUBRET was appointed to the position of the I.F.B.B. Vice President. In 1976 SERGE NUBRET set another International organization of W.A.B.B.A. as he explains „to fight with the I.F.B.B.“. 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 I.F.B.B. documents asking to support him. That was very personal information about BEN WEIDER  and we never published this anywhere.
The IFBB International and the I.F.B.B. U.S.S.R. (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 U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation. In 1991 President of the U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation VASILIJ CHAIKOVSKI (Василий Чайковский) was removed from his position by VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин). Feeling frustrated of this unfair action VASILIJ CHAIKOVSKIJ imediatelly 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 I.F.B.B.. After this WAYNE DE MILIA was dismissed from the position of the Director of the I.F.B.B. 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 I.F.B.B. split two times. First I.F.B.B. was divided between Assistant of BEN WEIDER Spanish RAFAEL SANTONJA  and the I.F.B.B. Vice President PAUL CHUA from Singapore. At that moment PAUL CHUA was supported only by Asia and Arab Countries. Then PAUL CHUA  and Sheikh of UAE AL SHAFAR came to London (U.K.) 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 E.U. visas. The deal was closed. Some time later PAUL CHUA and the I.F.B.B. Lower ALEX BAUER (Austria) sent 600 pages of I.F.B.B. juridical and financial documents and asked to publish them. We did it as they asked.
Some years ago Australian GRAEME LANCEFIELD established his W.F.F. federation. He started collecting N.A.B.B.A. athletes to his own contests using the N.A.B.B.A. name. N.A.B.B.A. leaders were angry about this. Then in 2018 the President of the N.A.B.B.A. U.S.A. and a famous I.F.B.B. professional bodybuilder EDDIE ROBINSON  addressed DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to support N.A.B.B.A. in fighting against unfair behavior of GRAEME LANCEFIELD. After this GRAEME LANCEFIELD continued acting against N.A.B.B.A.. At the beginning of 2020 the President N.A.B.B.A. International and a famous U.K. Professional bodybuilder ED ELWOOD asked DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to support N.A.B.B.A. against GRAEME LANCEFIELD again. To help N.A.B.B.A. we wrote and published a thorough article about this.
Different of other International Bodybuilding Organizations today W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. seeks huge aims to make bodybuilding recognized and respected. Our sport became so much commercial that today we are the only ones to fulfill the old dreams of BEN WEIDER.

2022. WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.
I.F.B.B. AND N.A.B.B.A FIFTY YEARS AGO.

Nothing is better than the historic letter of JULIEN 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 I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) Europe Chairman JULIEN BLOMMAERT (Belgium) wrote a letter to the owner and the „Life President“ of the I.F.B.B. BEN WEIDER.
Note: President I.F.B.B. BEN WEIDER gave this letter of JULIEN BLOMMAERT to the I.F.B.B. Vice President SERGE NUBRET. Then in 1985 the above mentioned letter as well as other numerous historic and juridical our sport documents were sent by SERGE NUBRET to the contemporary International President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. In his letter SERGE NUBRET wrote that DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS is the only one in the U.S.S.R. to get these documents. World bodybuilding legend SERGE NUBRET was appointed to the position of the I.F.B.B. Vice President at the 1970 Belgrade Congress in Yugoslavia. He served at this position until 1975. In 1976 SERGE NUBRET set the International W.A.B.B.A. (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 sport more open to public. The documents as well as many other historic bodybuilding articles are kept in the archieve files of the International W.F.F. - W.B.B.F. federation.
In the letter of JULIAN BLOMMAERT the situation in I.F.B.B. and N.A.B.B.A. (National Amateur Body Building Association) is spoken over. At that time in the „Western“ World I.F.B.B. and N.A.B.B.A. were the two basic International bodybuilding organizations. In 1968 in the Socialist World started the first International Bodybuilding organization and that wa the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Committee“. Also in 1968 the historic „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, «Янтарный приз») bodybuilding contest started.
JULIEN BLOMMAERT wrote in his letter about the 12-th I.F.B.B. „Mr. Universe“ (1971) competition. Then the winners were GIUSEPPE DEIANA (Belgium), brother of JULIEN BLOMAERT KARL BLOMAERT and ALBERT BECKLES (UK). In the letter he feels sad about the fact that at the I.F.B.B. „Mr. Universe“ contest a N.A.B.B.A. man ALBERT BECKLES won the over all title. JULIEN BLOMMAERT writes that the I.F.B.B. „Mr. Universe“ organization was terrible that time and that 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 Orient Countries who organized their own block at the 1970 I.F.B.B. Belgrade Congress.
Note: at the I.F.B.B. International Belgrade Congress out of 24 Countries present 12 were the „Communist Orients“: Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Malaysia, Pakistan, Lebanon, Turkey, Egypt, Japan, Singapore, Syria and Kenya.
JULIEN BLOMMAERT writes that all of the representatives of the „Communist Orients“ are only dressed like people but in fact they are not civilized.
In the same letter JULIEN BLOMMAERT comments the 1971 N.A.B.B.A. „Mr. Universe“ competition. He thinks that the N.A.B.B.A. position is bright. World‘s best elite bodybuilders are with N.A.B.B.A.: CHRIS DICKERSON, SERGIO OLIVA, BILL PEARL, FRANK ZANE, KEN WALLER, REG PARK etc..
In the letter JULIEN BLOMMAERT accused the International I.F.B.B. President BEN WEIDER with taking important decisions alone. This was against the Rules and the Constitution of I.F.B.B. that was accepted at the I.F.B.B. International Congress in Belgrade. JULIEN BLOMMAERT thinks that it is bad for the I.F.B.B. reputation. He asks BEN WEIDER to „awake otherwise everybody will run away from the I.F.B.B. and only he and JULIEN BLOMMAERT will remain“.
Note: the same situation was also in 1990 when nearly all I.F.B.B. Professional bodybuilders left the I.F.B.B. federation and joined the activities of VINCE MAC MAHON.

2022. GLOBAL TELEVISION C.N.N. PRESENTED W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. TO A BILLION PEOPLE WORLD WIDE.
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“, 1968-2022) 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 fivety 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 fifty five years of serious stable work. The power of the W.F.F. - W.B.B.F. – fifty five 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.
