A new challenging sport season starts for the thousands of IFBB international athletes worldwide, in a year with very important novelties, as the evolution to World Ranking to new disciplines (Fitness and Women’s Physique) and more cash prizes (325.000 $).

With IFBB walking in solid way through the Olympic recognition and joining already several Regional Games; the athletes will find out, this year 2018, new and awesome events to participate, as the 1st. Mr. & Ms. America Ben Weider IFBB Cup that will be held in Bogotá (Colombia); coming next February 16th-18th.

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.
