International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness


by Armando M.    The United Kingdom Bodybuilding & Fitness Federation (UKBFF), chaired by IFBB General Secretary Mr. William Tierney, keeps working hard in updating the skills of their judges. Already a priority for IFBB since last decade, the UKBFF has been investing time and efforts, as well, in boosting this initiative.


As evidence of it, last Sunday February 5th, the UKBFF organized its 3rd Judge´s Seminar, in last years, leaded by Mr. Pawel Filleborn, chairman of the IFBB Judge´s Committee. Same as the previous ones, the seminar was perfectly organized by Mr. Tierney and his wife Wanda – chairwoman of IFBB Women´s Committee- and near 30 national and international British judges attended this edition, celebrated in the Forest of Arden Hotel (Birmingham).


With huge international experience or only with national events in its judge´s career; officials from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland updated its judging criteria, focusing on this 2017 season that will be challenging for athletes and officials, with a huge number of important events as next IFBB Azadi Classic (April 9th), UK Nationals (April 15th), English Grand Prix (June 4th) or IFBB Diamond Cup Liverpool (October 21st to 23rd), just to mention some of them!
