Past week took place the IFBB European Executive Council meeting in Madrid, that following the tradition of previous years, had special guest officers from different countries and regions, including Dr. Adel Fahim, Vice-President of the IFBB for Africa and President of the Arab Federation, as well as the President of the Saudi Arabia Federation, Mr. Osama Alrumayan.

Among other topics, it was evaluated the European calendar that presents a high number of events.
The 45 IFBB Federations in Europe are conducting more than 2,000 competitions throughout this year.

The meeting had a pleasant ending with a gala dinner held at the Madrid Casino, which was attended by distinguished International Sports figures such as Mr. José Perurena, President of the International World Games, and Mr. Antonio Espinos, President of the International Karate Federation.

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
