Great news for Santa Susanna (Barcelona; Spain) and Bodybuilding: Mr. Joan Campolier i Montsant was re-elected for a new 4 years period, as Mayor of the village, in the Municipal Elections celebrated on recent Sunday 26th, in Spain.

Always committed with his village -he became in Mayor in 1976-, Mayor Campolier has been the local driving force behind the motto “Santa Susanna, World Capital of Fitness” when the IFBB celebrated, in 2003, its first World Fitness Championships in the village. Some weeks ago, he was awarded by President Santonja, on behalf the European Bodybuilding & Fitness Federation, with the “Spirit of IFBB”, at the 2019 EBFF Congress, in recognition to his long-term relationship with IFBB and Bodybuilding & Fitness.

Personal friends for almost 2 decades, President Santonja was one of the first persons to congratulate him, officially, for his new re-election as Mayor.

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
