Marvin Chappell, former NPC Chairman of Virginia and Washington DC, has been named IFBB Physique America Vice President of the Middle Atlantic states which includes Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and the Washington DC area.

Again, IFBB Physique America is lucky and honored to have a man with the vast experience of Marvin Chappell joining our new Federation. His organizational skills and promotional knowledge is second to none” exclaims IFBB Physique America CEO/President Wayne S. DeMilia. Marvin has been involved in the sport for 40 years as a competitor, official, promoter and a trainer. He immediately named Eric Bethune as his Vice Chairman. Eric is the 2013 NPC Jr. USA Superheavyweight Champion, a promoter and in his “real life” he is a space engineer for Raytheon. “Again, this is another great individual to be involved with IFBB Physique America” stated DeMilia.

Then recognizing the massive amounts of women’s competitors at events, Marvin named former competitor and promoter Peggy Golden Hayes at his women’s rep to oversee women’s competitions in the region. Marvin followed up by naming former competitor D’Shawn Wright as his chief promoter in the region.

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
