ANNUAL MEETING IN FINLAND

The Finnish National Federation had its annual meeting on March 29 by Skype due to Covid-19.

The Finnish Federation is recognized by the Finnish Olympic Committee and has conducted doping tests approved by WADA and by the Finnish Anti-Doping Agency since 1995.

IFBB Assistance to the General Secretary, Mr. KP Ourama, was re-elected as President of the Finnish Federation.

The main event of the 2020 season in Finland is the Nordic Fitness Expo, an event that will be held next October 10th-1th in the city of Turku.

The IFBB has two main events in this exhibition, the Jan Tana Classic competition, an IFBB Elite Pro Qualifier and Ranking Qualifier event, and the NOCCO Elite Pro, known as one of the most prestigious professional shows in Europe.

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
