Austrian Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation informed us that its President Dr. Wolfgang Schober is now a proud bearer of the St. Pölten Medal of Honor for Sports Achievements. The ceremony was celebrated by St. Pölten’s Mayor Mag. Matthias Stadler at the City Hall of the capital of Lower Austria. In particular the moderator underlined Dr. Schober´s successful efforts in his short laudatory speech – “Dr. Schober has made Bodybuilding acceptable in our society”. 

President Schober, 57, is a rare official of this level who still continues his competitive bodybuilding career, finishing as a runner-up at the latest Arnold Amateur Championships in Columbus, Ohio, USA, few weeks ago. He also won the world and European titles in his age class. On the other hand, he is a dynamic official, capable to promote the biggest IFBB international events like 2013 World Classic Bodybuilding Championships. We congratulate Dr. Schober this award, wishing him the successful continuation of his sport and administrative career!
