Near 200 Bodybuilding & Fitness athletes from Paraguayan Bodybuilding Association (EPF&PFI) are competing during this weekend, in Asunción -the capital city- in a new edition of the main event organized by this organization recognized by IFBB and led efficiently by president Mr. Víctor Niella.

The event, celebrated at the prestigious “Centro Cultural Guaraní”; started on Saturday 24th with a free Technical Seminar for athletes and coaches about training, judging criteria and first aid; and will continue today, Sunday 25th; with the competition in front of a wide audience (all the tickets have been sold out).

The charismatic “Mr. Paraguay” has a nice tradition: before starting the competition, all the athletes go to the stage, wearing the t-shirts from their respective Gym, and they were thrown to the audience: a fantastic way to promote Bodybuilding & Fitness.

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
