Living a Golden Era for Bodybuilding, Algeria has become one of the reference countries in Africa. Not only for its organizational capacity, hand in hand with the National Federation (FABBFPL) chaired by Mr Moussa Messaour, but for the quality of its athletes.

Currently, Algeria has three Elite Pro athletes in Bodybuilding (and two of them among the top 5 in the World) to which will join one more, in this 2019: the symmetric Sid Ali Midoun, champion of Africa 2018 Bodybuilding, who will try to impose his 83 kilos of solid muscle in the Elite Pro Division (-90 kilos).

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
