The General Secretary of the IFBB Medical Commission, Dr. Alfonso Morán and his son – Dr. Moran Jr.– visited President Santonja and his wife, Mrs. Nieves; in order to report about coming next activities related with health that will be promoted from the Medical Commission, including new courses about prevention of heart failure. 

Dr. Moran and his team have been present in most of the recent international IFBB events (European Championships, Arnold Classic Europe, World Bodybuilding Championships, etc…) taking care of the athletes and always ready to share his wide experience in the field of Emergencies and Medical First Aid. He took profit of the summertime in Spain, to visit Santonja´s Family, in Tarifa (South of Spain) where the IFBB President is spending some days, always following all the IFBB activities.

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
