Former World Fitness Champion and dedicated coach and official, Gabriela Mlsnová-Superová -born in Kosice (Slovakia)-, has been appointed to coordinate the IFBB Children Commission, based on her experience and solid work in this area.

The International Federation has a very successful children program, including the Annual World Championships, held for many years in Novi Sad (Serbia), under the leadership of Biserka and Zorana Sipka. The Children Fitness program has provided excellent athletes for Junior and Senior categories, as has been demonstrated this 2017 season.

For the next 2018, the World Children Championships will take place in Slovakia, moving the Europeans to Novi Sad. Besides this two international events, Hungary will host the World Children Cup, open to all IFBB-affiliated National Federations.

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
