by Armando M.    More than 120 days before the 2016 edition (Bialystok, Poland; November 11th – 13rd); IFBB announces that 2017 World Fitness Championships will take place in Biarritz, the beauty french village located on the Bay of Biscay, on the Atlantic coast, 35 km from the border with Spain.

Organized by French Bodybuilding & Fitness Association (AFBBF), chaired by Mr. Mario Valero; the announcement shows the trust from IFBB in its capacity to manage huge international events, as it was proved in May 2015, when AFBBF hosted the 21st. Mediterranean Bodybuilding & Fitness Championships.

According the agreement between IFBB and AFBBF, 2017 World Fitness Championships will be celebrated from December 1st. (Friday) to 4th (Monday).

A new generation of stars are ready to reach the top in all IFBB female disciplines (Bikini, Bodyfitness, Women´s Physique and Fitness), but some of them will be discovered, already this year, in Bialystok. Near to 700 athletes from 60 countries are expected in 2016 IFBB World Fitness Championships, organized by the Polish Bodybuilding & Fitness Federation (PZKF) with the support of UKS Maniac Gym. Bialystok, a beautiful polish village located 60 km from the border with Belarus, it´s an important place for the IFBB history: in 2009 hosted the World Junior & Master Championship and, in 2012, again, the World Fitness Championships.
