2024. NO OTHER INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING FEDERATION HAS IT‘S OWN MAGAZINE, BUT W.F.F. – W.B.B.F..
WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.
Today  the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  International unites 140 Country – Members and organizes every year nearly 60 anual Am and Pro International Events World Wide. Looking from the juridic point of view the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International is no doubt the Real World Bodybuilding Leader.
W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International started issuing the International Magazines in various languages in 1989. The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Magazines are spread free of charge during the most important International Sport Events World Wide and also in all Country-Members of the Federation. The Magazines can be found in many basic State Libraries. Once the German Leizig State Library addressed the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International asking the Federation Magazines for the readers.
We would like to underline that no other known International Bodybuilding Sport Organization has it‘s own International Magazine, but the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F..
Not long ago the Sport Ministry Lithuania informed the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International that the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Magazines will be  Representing sport of Republic Lithuania Internationally.
ARNOLD SCWARZENEGGER RECOMMENDS
The first W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International Magazine (1989) was the famous methodical issue „Arnold Scwarzenegger Recommends“ („Арнольд Шварценеггер рекомендует»). At that time many East Europe Bodybuilders were short of the methodical knowlidge and that was the reason of the 2 000 000 sucessfull issues of the magazine. The „Arnold Scwarzenegger Recommends“ bacame the real „Cathekizmus“ for most bodybuilders of that time. It was spread in the countries of former U.S.S.R. and East Europe. Several generations of today‘s bodybuilders grew up under these magazines.
WORKING PUBLISHING GROUP
The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. working publishing group is led by the Member International Journalist Association the International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. President DSc EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. For the period of the last 30 years the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International published 37 International Magazines under various names in various languages.
GERMAN LEIPZIG STATE LIBRARY.
Our magazines You can find easy at any State Library of Lithuania. Several years ago German State Leipzig Library addressed the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International asking to send them our magazines. So we did then.
WORLD BODYBUILDING  ENCYCLOPEDIA
Crowning it‘s sixty years of  International Bodybuilding activities, the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.  works on the Unique Global International Bodybuilding Project -  the „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“ («Энциклопедия всемирного культуризма»)
Until now nobody even tried to work on such a huge International Project. To be frank, only few people can do it. There were attempts to name some previous works as „Encyclopedia“ too, but that were not Encyclopedias of Bodybuilding Sport in real (for example, as Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s „Encyclopedia“ was written about himself in person mostly). In real every Encyclopedia covers much wider things.
WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.
SOCIALIST COUNTRIES BODYBUILDING LITERATURE.
Before the prohibition of bodybuilding in the middle of the sixties of the last century in all Socialist World Countries  the only one regular magazine about bodybuilding sport was Polish „Sport Dla Wszystkich“. At that time Lithuanians presented the basics of bodybuilding in the magazine „The Student“(„Moksleivis“).
Through the time of the prohibition of bodybuilding sport in the Socialist Countries nobody even dreamed about the bodybuilding literature. The exception was in Czechoslovakia Bratislava issued  „Trener“ Magazine and the German D.D.R. (Deutsches Demokratik Republik)  Weight Lifting Magazine „The Weightlifter‘s Training“ ( „Schwer Atlet Training“) which started to publish some information about our sport. During this time DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  used to give articles and contest information for these Magazines. Also for BEN WEIDER‘S „Flex“ magazine. All magazines used to publishe the DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS given materials. First of all it was information from the World‘s Oldest Traditional Bodybuilding Contest, the only one anual International Bodybuilding Event in all Socialist Counties, the „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, „Янтарный приз», 1968-2023). The above mentioned Czechoslovakia „Trener“ Magazines were published by JOZEF MAZAK and later by MILAN PERDOCH.
International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. worked and still works on the documents and various materials of World‘s Bodybuilding History. The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ Magazine started in English, Russian and Lithuanian languages in 1989. During this period of time the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. printed and spread through the World several millions copies of the Magazine. „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ is awailable at the National W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. federations in all 140 Country - members of the W.F.F. - W.B.B.F. International as well as at the most important World‘s International Bodybuilding and Fitness Events.
Main articles of the „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ Magazine were published in various Internet Pages, sport and public media, among them regularly in Spanish „Fitness Alive“ (Argentina, Magazine for South America and Spain), in German „Fitness News“ (Austria, Magazine for Germany, Austria and Switzerland), in English „Strenght and Health“ (UK, Magazine for England, Scotland and Ireland), in Russian „Zeleznyj Mir“ (Russia, for Russia and Post Soviet Russian Speaking Countries and etc..).
At the beginning a number of the W
.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Magazines were of methodical character. These Magazines were teaching the bodybuilders how to train from the primityve beginning to the Top Professional Level. Through decades the President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS collected and translated materials and documents from different possible sources, analised, evaluated and systemized them and finally presented as methodical recommendations for the sportsmen. That were a number of popular International Seria Magazines under the titles like “ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER recommends”, “Training Programs of the World’s Best Bodybuilders”, “Bodybuilding Stars Recommend” etc..). Ending the 90-ties of the last century basing on these Magazines a number of new generations of bodybuilders were born and educated. Wishing to have these Magazines in their collections the libraries of a number of Countries addressed the International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Headquarters (like German State Library of Leipzig, Germany).
Today the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ („Sportinis fitnesas ir kultūrizmas“, „
Спортивный фитнес и культуризм») magazine has only informative International character but this makes it to be even more important. The Magazine covers most important World‘s Bodybuilding and Fitness Events and it gives true situation of sport on Official International Level, sets the goals of the sport for the future. Nobody else in the World does it, but the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F..

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

In 1988 at not so great contests of Czechoslovakian SSR „Stribro Cup“ Category Winner were U.S.S.R. bodybuilders ZIGMAS PRALGAUSKAS and at „Tatra Cup“ ALGIRDAS IVANAUSKAS.
U.S.S.R. bodybuilders took part at the „Berliner Baren Pokal“ International Contest in East Berlin (G.D.R.). the USSR Officials were DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and ALTAF GELEJEV ().

Lithuania, L.T.O.K., Lietuvos Tautinis Olimpinis Komitetas) strongly suggested Lithuanian athletes to behave like this. Being a member of the N.O.C. Lithuania Klaipeda department  DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS stopped his activities in the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ («Федерация культуризма С.С.С.Р.»). He went on working on the independant membership of the National Bodybuilding Federation of the Lithuanian SSR at the I.F.B.B.. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and I.F.B.B. President BEN WEIDER had active correspondance on the matter. The negotiations went on. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wanted BEN WEIDER to be interested about the membership of the Lithuanian SSR and suggested him a number of big business projects. BEN WEIDER wrote him not to discuss these questions through letters. He suggested to cover the topic at the coming presonal meetings.
TROJKA
I.F.B.B. President BEN WEIDER came to the 1989 „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ in Leningrad. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and BEN WEIDER agreed to discuss a number of urgent questions at the V.I.P. banquet. The banquet took palce at the popular Leningrad reastaurant „Trojka“ “ («Тройка»). The Russian organizers gave DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS two tickets to the banquet. Returned from the Contest to hotel DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and and his pupil VIKTORAS JUCYS visited his companions from Lithuania SSR. Also in the room were present Vice President of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS, members of the federation RAMUTIS KAIRAITIS, ALEKSANDRAS NOVIKOVAS and today‘s fampus Lithuania art photographer ALGIMANTAS ALEKSANDRAVICIUS. No one of them was invited to the banquet with BEN WEIDER. Speaking about the happenings in Leningrad ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS said he will go to the banquet together with DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS dissagreed and reminded to everybody sins of ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS: how due to his ego and black envy ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS ruined or tried to ruin sport careers of  Lithuanian SSR bodybuilders ALBERTAS REMEIKA, JURIJ GUSEV (Юрий Гусев), ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS, also of Estonian SSR bodybuilder OLEV ANNUS. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS reminded about how for the same reasons in 1979 ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS ruined International Contest „U.S.S.R. – Czechoslovakian SSR“. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was working on this several years on. DSc. The documents are kept at the archieves of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation). EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS reminded how in 1988 ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS ruined participation of Lithuanian SSR bodybuilders VIKTORAS JUCYS and SAULIUS MISEVICIUS at the 1988 I.F.B.B. World Championship in Australia. ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS kept the passports of bodybuilders and they could not fly to Australia. Then ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS started to cry and got on the knees asking a pardon. This way DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS left ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS and went to the banquet together with VIKTORAS JUCYS. At the banquet DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS sat together with BEN WEIDER. Both went on speaking on the questions of Lithuania membership in the I.F.B.B. federation and also on a number of commercial matters. BEN WEIDER invited DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS as his personal guest to 1989 I.F.B.B. World Championship in Paris. And that happened some time later.
1989. „U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING FEDERATION“ COUNCIL.
The 1989 „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ Council was collected in Leningrad as Lithuanians aimed to get independant membership in the I.F.B.B. federation. It was a chance to solve this problematic question peacefully. All Chairmen of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ were present: Chairman VASILIJ CAIKOVSKIJ (Василий Чайковский), Vice Chairmen VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин) and ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS. Also representatives of the „U.S.S.R. Sport Ministry“ («Министерства спорта С.С.С.Р) were present at the Council too. National Federation of the Lithuanian SSR was represented by a member of the Olympic Committee of the Lithuanian SSR (L.T.O.K., Lietuvos Tautinis Olimpinis Komitetas) ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS, a member of the Olympic Committee of the Lithuanian SSR Klaipeda Department DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and ARUNAS PETRAITIS. Basing on his correspondance with the I.F.B.B. President BEN WEIDER, on the „U.S.S.R. Constitution“, on the Constitution of the Lithuanian SSR, on the I.F.B.B. Constitution DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wrote a Declatarion. The Declaration was about the independant membership of the National Federation of the Lithuanian SSR in the I.F.B.B.. It was ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS to read the Declaration. He was afraid... DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and ARUNAS PETRAITIS pushed him to the stage. Again ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS did not read. Then DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS came on the stage and said the preliminary words. Only after this ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS read the Declaration. The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International Archieves have a video material about this happening. Delegates of various Socialist Republics were against the action of the Lithuanians and did not support the Declaration. Lithuanians were alone as National Federations of the Estonian and Latvian SSR joined them some months later and only formally. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS informed BEN WEIDER about the Concil in Leningrad. More details about the ways to Independance of the National Federation of the Lithuanian SSR are in various languages on Global Page www.wff.lt .
1989. I.F.B.B. WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, PARIS.
During all bodybuilding history the 1989 I.F.B.B. World Championship was one uncomparibable event. During the years only two International bodybuilding events were of so high level. It was the famous of sexual scandals 2004 I.F.B.B. World Championship in Moscow (Russian Federation) and the 2011 W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) World Championship in Viena (Austria). During the eighties of the last Century the International W.A.B.B.A. (World Amateur Body Building Association) ruling structure was like this: President RENAUT ROBINET and General Secretary AKLI CHABENI. Both mentioned persons together with formal I.F.B.B. Vice President and Creator of the W.A.B.B.A. association (it was created in 1976) SERGE NUBRET were working on the 1989 W.A.B.B.A. World Championship in Paris. That time the sponsors were really very big. Some way the I.F.B.B. President BEN WEIDER invited RENAUT ROBINET to his house in Canada. After this visit RENAUT ROBINET declared that he is leaving W.A.B.B.A. and starts working with the I.F.B.B.. As all preliminary work for the 1989 W.A.B.B.A. World Championship was done RENAUT ROBINET announced that he is organizing the I.F.B.B. World Championship in Paris instead of W.A.B.B.A. now. This action of RENAUT ROBINET made awfull strike on SERGE NUBRET and he never reached the previous W.A.B.B.A. level again. After the 1989 I.F.B.B. World Championship in Paris RENAUT ROBINET got no preferences from BEN WEIDER. So he left I.F.B.B. and never appeared in bodybuilding again and was forgotten for ever. Through the years is evident that no International Bodybuilding Organizations around the World ever made any other bodybuilding  contest which is worth to notice. Nothing to compare.
Those bodybuilders of the Lithuanian SSR who neglected the orders of the Olympic Committee of the Lithuanian SSR (L.T.O.K.) were included to the U.S.S.R. Team and participated at the 1989 I.F.B.B. World Championship in Paris. They were not successfull at the competition as all U.S.S.R. team too.
The Chairmen of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ («Федерация культуризма С.С.С.Р.») were angry about Lithuanian aims to get independant I.F.B.B. membership. They did not include the Vice Chairman of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS to the U.S.S.R. delegation to go to Paris again.
During the 1989 „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ («Чемпионат С.С.С.Р. по культуризму») in Leningrad DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was invited as a Personal Guest of BEN WEIDER to the World Championship in Paris. Their common correspondance went on and BEN WEIDER let DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS take any member of the National Bodybuilding Federation of the Lithusnisn SSR together with him to Paris. Thinking of support about the membership in the I.F.B.B. federation DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS took ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS with him. Both Lithuanians came to France separate from the U.S.S.R. delegation. Later DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS regreted about his decission. During several meetings with the emigrants of the old 1918 Lithuanian Republic ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS behaved rude towards independance of Lithuania.
Delegations of various countries lived in the famous Paris „La Fayette“ hotel. The contest was also organized at a huge „La Fayette“ Palace. Just before the I.F.B.B. World Championship BEN WEIDER invited Lithuanians to his appartments in „La Fayette“ penthouse. The Assistant of BEN WEIDER PAMELA KAGAN (Canada) was also present at the discussion then. The discussion lasted very long. With BEN WEIDER spoke DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS did not knew languages and even did not understand what both were speking about. Finally another assistant of BEN WEIDER RAFAEL SANTONJA entered the room and said that BEN WEIDER is needed down at the contest as the competitions are nearly to finish and it is high time to present award to the Over All World Champion. BEN WEIDER and DSC. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS agreed to go on discussing matters via later correspondance.
The 1989 I.F.B.B. World Championship Category Winners were ACHMED MOHMED (Egypt), VAN VALCOT SMITH (USA), BERNARD SEALY (Barbados) FRANK HILEBRAND (West Germany), JEAN LUC FAVRE (Switzerland).
There was a banquet in „La Fayette“ after the competition. BEN WEIDER sat DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS close to him and presented him to the Heads of the delegations of various countries. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS got many new International contacts. Being drunk at the banquet ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS decided to „fight for Lithuanian Independance“ and quarreled with Vice Chairman of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Fdereation“ VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин). He accused VLADIMIR DUBININ about not taking him to I.F.B.B. Events in Australia (1988) and France (1989). It was DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to stop the fighting. Details on the 1989 I.F.B.B. World Championship You can find in various langueges on Global Site  www.wff.lt .
1989 I.F.B.B. EUROPE CHAMPIONSHIP.

The 2-d official „U.S.S.R. Junior Championship“ («Чемпионат С.С.С.Р. по культуризму среди молодёжи») was organized together with „Amber Prix International“. This way U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Chairmen wanted to keep tide the National Bodybuilding Federation of the Lithuanian SSR as it was aiming to enter the I.F.B.B. independantly from the U.S.S.R..

Bodybuilding Cup“ («Кубок С.С.С.Р. по культуризму»). Giving this competition to Lithuanians this way U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Chairmen wanted to keep tide the National Bodybuilding Federation of the Lithuanian SSR as it was aiming to enter the I.F.B.B. independantly from the U.S.S.R.. Anyway most famous bodybuilders of the Lithuanian SSR did not participate in Kaunas then.

LITHUANIA STATE NEWS AGENCY ELTA. INTERNATIONAL PRESS CONFERENCE.
After the Official Parliamen Meeting of Heads W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International  the International Press Conference will be held at the Lithuania State News Agency ELTA.
W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. ALWAYS WAS NON KOMMERCIAL SPORT ORGANIZATION.
During the sixty years of it‘s activities the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. always kept on the real official sport side. Though there were various political and economical dificulties, the federation never stopped working (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 sixty years of serious stable work. The power of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. – sixty years of constant International Sport work.
Today the valuables of the mankind changed. For most people money means everything. No morality, only money and lies. Today most of International Sport Organizations are commercial. Even WADA (World Anti Doping Agency) seeks profit and this is the reason that not every International Sport Organization can join WADA. Such mentioned above organizations  proclame commerce, not sport. It is a theater of absurd 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.  Yes, sometimes we are in a clumsy financial situation, but it happens sometimes, not always.
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.

WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA.
N.P.C. – WHAT IS IT?
Working since 1968 W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Bodybuilding Federation) International today unites 140 Countries from all Continents. Since 2012 W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International world on the unique project – “World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia” («Всемирная энциклопедия культуризма»). W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. seeks to become associated member of the UN. W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. seeks Olympic recognition. We know the way.
One of the parts of the Encyclopedia will cover the history of bodybuilding in the USA. During the last several years the N.P.C. (“National Physique Committee”) started to be active in various Countries.
We will give answers to the following questions:
- How in 1983 appeared N.P.C.?
- Why N.P.C. left A.A.U. (“Amateur Athletic Union”) in 1983? A.A.U. was created in 1888 and was recognized by the USA Olympic Committee.
- What is the juridical status of N.P.C.? Is it a sport organization or private company?
- Why N.P.C. is not supported by the USA Government?
- Why no International Organizations support N.P.C.?
- What kind of “carnavals” are the N.P.C. “Sport Festivals?
You will be shocked when You will get the answers. Why bodybuilders of various Countries are cheated so easy and so easy trust unbelievable matters?
Long ago – when several times at “Olympia” contests was only one competitor – ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER – it was glory and prestige. Long ago at NATALIA MURNIKOVIENE times there were two categories at “Olympia” – one for men and one for women. It was glory and prestige then. Now several businessmen bough rights to make “Olympia festivals“ and carnavals. They call their “Olympia” events as “festivals”. The festivals have many categories and only few understand what is going on. After an hour of the festivals nobody remember names of the winners. Glory? Prestige? Sport institutions of any country do not recognize these festivals. It has nothing to do with sport. What happened with the brains of bodybuilders? What seek organizers of the festivals? Think a little and You will be ashamed…

WORLD BODY BUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA.
1989 SOCIALIST BODYBUILDING NEWS.
Since 1973 until 1987 in Socialist Countries bodybuilding was prohibited. Getting free this sport became very popular. People used to go to gyms and watch videos with ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, SYLVESTER STALLONE and CLAUDE VAN DAMME. In 1989 lots of various level bodybuilding contests were held in Socialist Countries. The most important 1989 International Competitions were the first official „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ («Чемпионат С.С.С.Р. по культуризму») and the contest „U.S.S.R. – USA“ („Матчевая встреча С.С.С.Р.). Both events were recongized and supported by the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“ («Министерство спорта С.С.С.Р.»).
„U.S.S.R. – USA“
On March 18, 1989 the International Contest „U.S.S.R. – USA“ (Матчевая встречя «С.С.С.Р. – США») was organized in Leningrad (R.S.F.S.R.). It was the first time when American bodybuilders came to the U.S.S.R.. Until this the U.S.S.R. bodybuiders knew USA bodybuilders only through the magazines. The organizers of the event from the USA side were LOUIS ZWICK and DAVID ZELON. USA expences were covered by LOUIS ZWICK. USA was represented by a number of I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) bodybuilders: CARLA DUNLAP, DIANA DENNIS, LAURA BEAUDRY, JEAN PAUL GUILLAUME, TROY ZUCCOLOTTO, REX LETTO.

(Комитет государственной безопасности С.С.С.Р.) agents and make two films about the training of well known U.S.S.R. bodybuilders VIKTORAS JUCYS and ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS (both Lithuanian SSR). These films were presented on the USA  E.S.P.N. sport television. Detailed revue about the event is in various languages on Global Page www.wff.lt .
1989 „U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING CHAMPIONSHIP“.
The first step was done in 1988 at the first Official „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Cup“ («Кубок С.С.С.Р. по культуризму»). Then the U.S.S.R. Over All Winner was VIKTORAS JUCYS (Lithuanian SSR). The contest was supported and recognized by the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“. In 1989 the first official „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ was held in Leningrad too. Basing on the results of this competition the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Team“ had been selected to participate at the 1989 I.F.B.B. World Championship in Paris (France). The 1989 „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ Category Winners were: SHUMLIANSKIJ KONSTANTIN (Шумлянский Константин, Ukrainian SSR), BOGDANOVIC VALERIJ (Богданович Валерий, Belorussian SSR), DUBICKAS VINCAS (Lithuanian SSR), MOSALIOV GEORGIJ (Мосалёв Георгий, R.S.F.S.R.), PETRAUSKAS RICARDAS (Lithuanian SSR). The Over All Champion was VINCAS DUBICKAS. Due to the results of doping control SHUMLIANSKIJ KONSTANTIN was replaced by PATRAITIS RAIMUNDAS (Lithuanian SSR). Detailed revue about the event is in various languages on Global Page www.wff.lt .
In 1989 Klaipeda bodybuilders stopped participating at the offcicial U.S.S.R. contests and U.S.S.R. teams. Newly restored National Olympic Committee of Lithuanian SSR (N.O.C. Lithuania, L.T.O.K., Lietuvos Tautinis Olimpinis Komitetas) strongly suggested Lithuanian athletes to behave like this. Being a member of the N.O.C. Lithuania Klaipeda department  DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS stopped his activities in the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ («Федерация культуризма С.С.С.Р.»). He went on working on the independant membership of the National Bodybuilding Federation of the Lithuanian SSR at the I.F.B.B.. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and I.F.B.B. President BEN WEIDER had active correspondance on the matter. The negotiations went on. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wanted BEN WEIDER to be interested about the membership of the Lithuanian SSR and suggested him a number of big business projects. BEN WEIDER wrote him not to discuss these questions through letters. He suggested to cover the topic at the coming presonal meetings.
TROJKA
I.F.B.B. President BEN WEIDER came to the 1989 „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ in Leningrad. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and BEN WEIDER agreed to discuss a number of urgent questions at the V.I.P. banquet. The banquet took palce at the popular Leningrad reastaurant „Trojka“ “ («Тройка»). The Russian organizers gave DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS two tickets to the banquet. Returned from the Contest to hotel DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and and his pupil VIKTORAS JUCYS visited his companions from Lithuania SSR. Also in the room were present Vice President of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS, members of the federation RAMUTIS KAIRAITIS, ALEKSANDRAS NOVIKOVAS and today‘s fampus Lithuania art photographer ALGIMANTAS ALEKSANDRAVICIUS. No one of them was invited to the banquet with BEN WEIDER. Speaking about the happenings in Leningrad ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS said he will go to the banquet together with DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS dissagreed and reminded to everybody sins of ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS: how due to his ego and black envy ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS ruined or tried to ruin sport careers of  Lithuanian SSR bodybuilders ALBERTAS REMEIKA, JURIJ GUSEV (Юрий Гусев), ROLANDAS BUCINSKAS, also of Estonian SSR bodybuilder OLEV ANNUS. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS reminded about how for the same reasons in 1979 ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS ruined International Contest „U.S.S.R. – Czechoslovakian SSR“. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was working on this several years on. DSc. The documents are kept at the archieves of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation). EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS reminded how in 1988 ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS ruined participation of Lithuanian SSR bodybuilders VIKTORAS JUCYS and SAULIUS MISEVICIUS at the 1988 I.F.B.B. World Championship in Australia. ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS kept the passports of bodybuilders and they could not fly to Australia. Then ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS started to cry and got on the knees asking a pardon. This way DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS left ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS and went to the banquet together with VIKTORAS JUCYS. At the banquet DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS sat together with BEN WEIDER. Both went on speaking on the questions of Lithuania membership in the I.F.B.B. federation and also on a number of commercial matters. BEN WEIDER invited DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS as his personal guest to 1989 I.F.B.B. World Championship in Paris. And that happened some time later.
1989. „U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING FEDERATION“ COUNCIL.
The 1989 „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ Council was collected in Leningrad as Lithuanians aimed to get independant membership in the I.F.B.B. federation. It was a chance to solve this problematic question peacefully. All Chairmen of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ were present: Chairman VASILIJ CAIKOVSKIJ (Василий Чайковский), Vice Chairmen VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин) and ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS. Also representatives of the „U.S.S.R. Sport Ministry“ («Министерства спорта С.С.С.Р.») were present at the Council too. National Federation of the Lithuanian SSR was represented by a member of the Olympic Committee of the Lithuanian SSR (L.T.O.K., Lietuvos Tautinis Olimpinis Komitetas) ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS, a member of the Olympic Committee of the Lithuanian SSR Klaipeda Department DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and ARUNAS PETRAITIS. Basing on his correspondance with the I.F.B.B. President BEN WEIDER, on the „U.S.S.R. Constitution“, on the Constitution of the Lithuanian SSR, on the I.F.B.B. Constitution DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wrote a Declatarion. The Declaration was about the independant membership of the National Federation of the Lithuanian SSR in the I.F.B.B.. It was ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS to read the Declaration. He was afraid... DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and ARUNAS PETRAITIS pushed him to the stage. Again ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS did not read. Then DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS came on the stage and said the preliminary words. Only after this ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS read the Declaration. The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International Archieves have a video material about this happening. Delegates of various Socialist Republics were against the action of the Lithuanians and did not support the Declaration. Lithuanians were alone as National Federations of the Estonian and Latvian SSR joined them some months later and only formally. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS informed BEN WEIDER about the Concil in Leningrad. More details about the ways to Independance of the National Federation of the Lithuanian SSR are in various languages on Global Page www.wff.lt .
1989. I.F.B.B. WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, PARIS.
During all bodybuilding history the 1989 I.F.B.B. World Championship was one uncomparibable event. During the years only two International bodybuilding events were of so high level. It was the famous of sexual scandals 2004 I.F.B.B. World Championship in Moscow (Russian Federation) and the 2011 W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) World Championship in Viena (Austria). During the eighties of the last Century the International W.A.B.B.A. (World Amateur Body Building Association) ruling structure was like this: President RENAUT ROBINET and General Secretary AKLI CHABENI. Both mentioned persons together with formal I.F.B.B. Vice President and Creator of the W.A.B.B.A. association (it was created in 1976) SERGE NUBRET were working on the 1989 W.A.B.B.A. World Championship in Paris. That time the sponsors were really very big. Some way the I.F.B.B. President BEN WEIDER invited RENAUT ROBINET to his house in Canada. After this visit RENAUT ROBINET declared that he is leaving W.A.B.B.A. and starts working with the I.F.B.B.. As all preliminary work for the 1989 W.A.B.B.A. World Championship was done RENAUT ROBINET announced that he is organizing the I.F.B.B. World Championship in Paris instead of W.A.B.B.A. now. This action of RENAUT ROBINET made awfull strike on SERGE NUBRET and he never reached the previous W.A.B.B.A. level again. After the 1989 I.F.B.B. World Championship in Paris RENAUT ROBINET got no preferences from BEN WEIDER. So he left I.F.B.B. and never appeared in bodybuilding again and was forgotten for ever. Through the years is evident that no International Bodybuilding Organizations around the World ever made any other bodybuilding  contest which is worth to notice. Nothing to compare.
Those bodybuilders of the Lithuanian SSR who neglected the orders of the Olympic Committee of the Lithuanian SSR (L.T.O.K.) were included to the U.S.S.R. Team and participated at the 1989 I.F.B.B. World Championship in Paris. They were not successfull at the competition as all U.S.S.R. team too.
The Chairmen of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ («Федерация культуризма С.С.С.Р.») were angry about Lithuanian aims to get independant I.F.B.B. membership. They did not include the Vice Chairman of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS to the U.S.S.R. delegation to go to Paris again.
During the 1989 „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ («Чемпионат С.С.С.Р. по культуризму») in Leningrad DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was invited as a Personal Guest of BEN WEIDER to the World Championship in Paris. Their common correspondance went on and BEN WEIDER let DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS take any member of the National Bodybuilding Federation of the Lithusnisn SSR together with him to Paris. Thinking of support about the membership in the I.F.B.B. federation DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS took ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS with him. Both Lithuanians came to France separate from the U.S.S.R. delegation. Later DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS regreted about his decission. During several meetings with the emigrants of the old 1918 Lithuanian Republic ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS behaved rude towards independance of Lithuania.
Delegations of various countries lived in the famous Paris „La Fayette“ hotel. The contest was also organized at a huge „La Fayette“ Palace. Just before the I.F.B.B. World Championship BEN WEIDER invited Lithuanians to his appartments in „La Fayette“ penthouse. The Assistant of BEN WEIDER PAMELA KAGAN (Canada) was also present at the discussion then. The discussion lasted very long. With BEN WEIDER spoke DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS did not knew languages and even did not understand what both were speking about. Finally another assistant of BEN WEIDER RAFAEL SANTONJA entered the room and said that BEN WEIDER is needed down at the contest as the competitions are nearly to finish and it is high time to present award to the Over All World Champion. BEN WEIDER and DSC. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS agreed to go on discussing matters via later correspondance.
The 1989 I.F.B.B. World Championship Category Winners were ACHMED MOHMED (Egypt), VAN VALCOT SMITH (USA), BERNARD SEALY (Barbados) FRANK HILEBRAND (West Germany), JEAN LUC FAVRE (Switzerland).
There was a banquet in „La Fayette“ after the competition. BEN WEIDER sat DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS close to him and presented him to the Heads of the delegations of various countries. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS got many new International contacts. Being drunk at the banquet ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS decided to „fight for Lithuanian Independance“ and quarreled with Vice Chairman of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Fdereation“ VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин). He accused VLADIMIR DUBININ about not taking him to I.F.B.B. Events in Australia (1988) and France (1989). It was DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS to stop the fighting. Details on the 1989 I.F.B.B. World Championship You can find in various languages on Global Site  www.wff.lt .
1989 I.F.B.B. EUROPE CHAMPIONSHIP.

Bodybuilding Chairmen wanted to keep tide the National Bodybuilding Federation of the Lithuanian SSR as it was aiming to enter the I.F.B.B. independantly from the U.S.S.R..

Bodybuilding Cup“ («Кубок С.С.С.Р. по культуризму»). Giving this competition to Lithuanians this way U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Chairmen wanted to keep tide the National Bodybuilding Federation of the Lithuanian SSR as it was aiming to enter the I.F.B.B. independantly from the U.S.S.R.. Anyway most famous bodybuilders of the Lithuanian SSR did not participate in Kaunas then. The order of the Olympic Committee of the Lithuanian SSR (L.T.O.K.) was not to participate at the official U.S.S.R. contests and not to go into the U.S.S.R. teams.
1989. SECOND CONTEST „U.S.S.R. – USA“.
