Thursday was the opening day of this year’s long EBFF physique sports week in Santa Susanna. It has started in a very unusual manner. In the first category: Junior Men’s Classic Bodybuilding two medals went to one country: Poland as Jakub Szczerba was declared the winner and Patryk Jaskiewicz won the bronze medal. They were separated by the Swedish bodybuilder Calle Bolund, who was the runner-up.

But in the next category: Master Men’s Classic Bodybuilding age 40-49 something even more amazing happened: not only two medals went to one country, Spain, but they were gold and silver in color and they went to… brothers: David and Eduardo LOPEZ BALDOMINOS! I don’t remember similar case in the IFBB history.

In Master Men’s Classic Bodybuilding age over 50 Peter Ljunggren (Sweden) dethroned the last year’s champion John Davi (Spain) who dropped to the 2nd position.

We are immersed in a health international emergency as a consequence of the Covid-19 epidemic.

In this situation, we must follow the applicable national and international regulations and the advice from governments and sanitary authorities.

All this has to be done with positive energy and best spirit, maintaining our focus on the fact that any epidemical situation has expansion, stabilization and reduction periods, and that with adequate care, this nightmare is going to be a bad memory soon.

By all means, the integrity of our athletes, officials, judges and of all who integrate our community is now and always essential. We are a family in sport and life.

We can expect to reach the epidemic peak and a progressive settle down, as is already happening in some of the countries in suffering this situation at first instance.

In conclusion, let’s be confident and keep working as a team, following the decisions from the competent authorities. Some events have been canceled and others are being rescheduled to a new date in which we may be able to celebrate with our athletes and friends our passion for sport and healthy lifestyle.

We recommend you visit the IFBB Calendar at our website www.IFBB.com on a regular basis, so that you may be fully updated on events and schedule.

Wishing you, your families and beloved one’s good health, and hoping that the situation will be back to normality as soon as possible

All the events that were planned for March and April are being postponed and rescheduled
