How works the IFBB Hall of Fame ?
The IFBB Hall of Fame pays tribute to the great personalities of our sport who, through their unique commitment and dedication, have in some profound way set an outstanding example for others to follow and, in so doing, have immeasurably enriched all of our lives.
Many of the athletes and officials we honor are considered pioneers of the sport. Some have attained greatness within the sport itself; some have gone on to achieve fame in other walks of life. Others have dedicated their lives towards the growth and development of the IFBB. Regardless of when or how their individual contributions were made, one common thread binds them all together. This bond is their true passion for bodybuilding and fitness. And it is this passion that we honor by their induction into the IFBB Hall of Fame.
