Athletes from more than 20 countries are already in Lahti (Finland), ready to participate in the 2019 IFBB Nordic Cup & Jan Tana Classic to be held in the popular Lahti Fair Centre Congress, from Saturday 5th till Sunday 6th.

The international event will be celebrated in coordination with 2019 Finnish Bodybuilding & Fitness National Championships, broadcasted by national TV and, as well, with the NOCCO Nordic Pro Championships. In total, over 600 athletes will be participating in the largest Nordic Fitness Festival.

Registration for IFBB athletes will be held in the same venue, from 16:00 until 20:00.

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 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
