THE INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING AND FITNESS ASSOCIATION.
"Oh no", I hear you saying, "not another one",
Already we have NABBA, IFBB, WPF, WABBA, WBA, ANB, etc., and yet Bodybuilding
is still going down the tubes. Lots of Shows, but a lack of Competitors,
and, worse still, hardly any audience.
Well, the International Bodybuilding & Fitness Association,
(IBFA), is different, it is the brainchild of Italy's Professor
Biagio Filizola. It's all about trust, having fun and making new
Biagio, in his earlier years competed many times, and in his
role as Professor of Physical Education has given many seminars
throughout Italy. Biagio is also President of Associazione italiana
Culturismo, (AIC), and has organised many italian contests. His
main show though was, and is always the AIC Mr Italy and Mr Europe,
held each July in his hometown of Sapri on the sunny Southwest italian
coast, 150 miles below Naples. The contest is held in the open air
at night right next to the beach. And, as a tourist attraction his
show has hundreds of spectators watching, from wide-eyed kids to
slightly mystified old senioras. And, can you believe, at his last
Mr Italy contest there were over 120 competitors, and it received
national T.V. and newspaper coverage. Bodybuilding is alive and
kicking in Italy.
Over the years, invited by Biagio, more and more Independent
organisations, throughout Europe have been sending competitors to
his show, now Biagio has joined forces with Michel Gauthier, President,
Association Culturist Francaise, (ACF), who runs his own ACF World
each November in France, and the other independent world organisations,
such as, Slovenia, Germany, Lithuania, Algeria, Marocco, Cameroon,
Belgium, Norway, Yugoslavia, and the U.S, to form the, all new IBFA.
As an independent promoter your contest could become an international
qualifier,and you could have international competitors taking part.
You still run your show just how you want; only now it's bigger.
So what's the catch? There isn't one, there are no fees, just people
who care about the sport of Bodybuilding, who trust, and want
to meet and travel internationally. Now there 's something new. If
