“Body Building and Fitness Rocks” BBFR
I am extremely excited and happy the way IFBB has not only grown nationally but our relationship with
IFBB International has grown leaps and bounds. The support we receive from the international federation
has proven again why IFBB is the strongest and biggest federation internationally.
The year of 2013 was a major success with a lot more national shows and 9 teams which was selected to
represent IFBB South Africa internationally. The good results we received on stage internationally once
again proven that our judges and athletes are world class and on par with what the international judges are
looking for. We also had 3 new international qualified judges surfacing last year showing that there is a way
forward and to the top for the judges . I encourage anybody who want to become a judge or part of
administration to make contact with their province for more information.
2014 Started off with the announcement of 2 new international IFBB events in South Africa. The Amateur Olympia Africa 2014 is an annual event which will take place every year for the next 3 years in Ekurhuleni. The event will be 25 and 26 October at Carnival City which will be the first time in many years we have our own SA athletes standing on stage in SA against international athletes and also the first time ever IFBB pro cards will be given out to the overall winners of the different categories. The Arnold Classic will also make its debut 2016 in Durban.
I want to use this opportunity also to thank the executive committee, judges and administrators who has been working so hard to make IFBB a big success. We appreciate all your hard work and creativity with creating new and better shows every year. This year alone we have 47 competitions in total which by far making IFBB the most active body building federation in South Africa. Thank you everybody for your hard work and dedication to create more competitive opportunities for our athletes.
