Another step forward in the IFBB Educational Program was reached, recent weekend 14th – 15th April, with the Judges Seminar offered by the Chairman of the Technical Committee, Mr. Pawel Filleborn, in Mexico DF, at the sports facilities of the Mexican Olympic Committee (COM).

Perfectly organized by the Mexican Bodybuilding & Fitness Federation (FMFF) chaired by Mr. Francisco Cabezas, with the support of the IFBB Vice-president for North America, Mr. Marco Cabezas; the event had a high level of participants with over 140 judges, coaches, trainers and athletes, besides the presence of important executive officials from the area, as the presidents of the National Federations of Guatemala, Costa Rica, Honduras and El Salvador.

This event has been another important activity for our sport, linked, in Mexico, with the COM; due the leadership of President Cabezas who is, as well, permanent member of the Olympic Committee. At the end of the Seminar, President Cabezas awarded Mr. Filleborn, in the presence of all the participants.

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
