SOUTH AFRICA: NATIONAL TEAM WILL BE AWARDED BY ITS OLYMPIC COMMITTEE (SASCOC)

The 2018 Bodybuilding South Africa National Championship, was a record breaking event with so many athletes  that National Federation -chaired by Mr. Wayne Price– had to run the event (prejudging & finals) over two days, with an incredible standard of the athletes.

Through the selection process, South Africa National Federation selected over 50 athletes and officials to attend the four IFBB World Championships that will be celebrated in 2018, where the country has been always represented during the last four years, proving its grow and development.

All the selected athletes and officials for IFBB World Championships, will be attending a official capping ceremony at the SASCOC Olympic House on 13 October 2018, in Johannesburg, where they will receive their official Protea Colours: a huge honor to receive and be recognized with one of the symbols of the country!

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 www.IFBB.com 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
