IFBB previews the show and publishes the competitior lists - huge event coming up with 350 competitors and 50 nations!


by Andrew Michalak

I summarized the Final Entry Forms sent by National Federations and I couldn’t believe my eyes: 350 competitors! Exactly. Compared to 228 athletes last year and 207 in 2010 it is an amazing progress. From 50 countries! And what is especially good news: the number of juniors jumped to 142! Only one time in the IFBB history the number of juniors exceeded 100 (101 in 2007). In 2004 in Opava, Czech Republic, there were 149 athletes altogether: juniors and masters, from 30 countries. After 8 years we have more than double.

But there are more good news: first time in the IFBB history recent world children fitness champions will enter the juniors fitness division: Tatiana Kozuchova, Vanessa Lisziova, Aleksandra Zhilina, Kinga Úrkúti, Vlada Andrjuschenko. They deserve for our special attention and applause. IFBB has brought up her own fitness champions from the very beginning, from the roots.

The former historical record of participation in these Championships was established in… Budapest at the 2007 Juniors and Masters Worlds: 249 athletes: 101 juniors plus 148 masters. It seems that our IFBB athletes love Budapest regardless of their age and come here with great pleasure.

The host: Hungarian Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation, with its President Istvan Huber, effectively supported in the everyday work by Ms. Viola Varga, have done their best to make your stay in Budapest comfortable and they await for your arrival. International judges, with the Chairman of the IFBB Judges Committee Pawel Filleborn as a Head Judge, will have a lot of work but after the recent Arnold Classic Europe with nearly 700 competitors they have enough experience to run the Championships smoothly, I believe. And we, the IFBB Press Commission, will do our best to pass information to all of you as soon as possible.

The Championships will be run in the elimination – semifinal – final blocks. Only junior fitness and masters bodybuilding 40-49 athletes will have semifinals and finals in separate days.

The contest will take place in a very special place – Millenaris Park, an artistic complex of buildings constructed in the place of the former metallurgical factory (foundry). The “E-Building” is a theater where our Championships will be run. More detailed info at: http://www.geocachin...c3-a2725a15b7bd

The Danubius Hotel Arena is a 4-star hotel located near the sport centre of Budapest, the Puskas Ferenc Stadion (the public stadium) and the SYMA convention centre. It offers 379 guestrooms.

Guestrooms provide wireless Internet access (surcharge), direct-dial phones, and

in-room safes (accommodate laptops). Guestrooms feature refrigerators. Bathrooms offer hair dryers. Additional amenities include minibars, air conditioning, and desks. More info at: http://danubius-hotel-arena.h-rsv.com/

Estal ja Merikesel ka nimekad vastased, kuid eks kohapeal paistab mis seal toimub. Nooremas vanuserühmas on 34 võistlejat....Krissukal on muidugi kategoorias Absoluutne maailmameister Zabo, kuid usun ,et ülejäänud kohtadele on võimalus ilusasti võistelda ja kehavoorus ei näe ma ka miks peaks Zabo parem olema, kuid tal on ka alati parim vabakava olnud - eks näis, igal juhul on põhjust kaks päeva olla arvutitaga, et uudiseid saada ja ehk üllatab keegi meie võistlejatest ka MM medaliga...Loodame parimat.

Paneks ennustusvõistluse ka käima, teada on võistlejate listid ja seda, et Krissul oli seal 14 ja Estal ja Merikesel ka 14 võistlejat kokku. Seega pakkuge meie sportlaste kohti lõpp protkollis ja jagame välja 1000 fitti õigesti vastanute vahel. Ennustus läheb lukku laupäeva 16.dets. hommikul kell 9.00 kui eeldatavasti algab eelvõistlus.

Head ennustamist!
