Barely two weeks later to his visit to Tunisia, the Chairman of the IFBB Judges Committee, Mr. Pawel Filleborn; came back to Maghreb (North of Africa), to deliver a new Seminar for Judges, Coaches, and Athletes, on the recent Saturday, 2nd. March.

In this opportunity, it was the Moroccan city of Marrakech where the Seminar was celebrated with over 80 participants attending the event, proving the interest about Bodybuilding & Fitness in the area, and the excellent promotional work performed by the Royal Moroccan Federation of Bodybuilding (FRMBB) chaired by Mr. Khalid Errahi.

In recent seasons, Morocco and all the Maghreb´s countries have been showing the evolution of their athletes, becoming more and more active in the IFBB activity. With the support of their National Sport Authorities (FRMBB is recognized by its Olympic Committee -CNOM-), Moroccan Federation is committed with the skills of their judges and coaches and this seminar came to support this aim. The previous seminar in the country it was delivered by President Santonja, when he was the Executive Assistant of former President Ben Weider, and the Chairman of the Judges Committee.

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
