The 2020 IFBB World Championships (Bodybuilding, Fitness and Masters) ended on Sunday evening. Nearly 500 athletes from over 30 countries were fighting for medals in 79 categories. All of these was possible thanks to the great leadership of the IFBB President, Dr. Rafael Santonja, supported this time by the Santa Susana Mayor Joan Campolier and an “army” of the experienced Spanish Federation officials and organizers. After the half-year break, athletes want to compete and they are very thankful to the IFBB for creating this possibility for them.

As it was announced at the annual IFBB International Congress held on Thursday, this year Arnold Classic Europe have been moved from Seville to Santa Susanna. This is a reasonable decision since everything in Santa Susanna (venue, hotel, transport, medical service) have been adopted to the current situation of Covid-19 pandemic and it wouldn’t be necessary to repeat this enormous amount of work in a new location. Moreover, smaller resort city with less inhabitants in the winter season is more safety from the medical point of view than overcrowded metropolis. So, if the situation is not getting worse, international athletes will have the another possibility to compete this year in Santa Susanna!

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
