SANTONJA TO OLYMPICS

SANTONJA TO OLYMPICS

The push for bodybuilding’s representation at the greater Olympic games is stronger than ever, as IFBB International President, Dr. Rafael Santonja will be in attendance at the Summer Olympic Games held in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil.) Santonja carries on the efforts of Ben Weider, whom decades ago made significant efforts to integrate the IFBB into the Olympics with recognition as an official sport. Though bodybuilding has remained on the outside looking into this point, some strides have been made such as the sport’s acceptance into the Asian Olympic Committee’s (OCA) regional games, a step down from the larger Olympic games.
Though the intent is pure, the consequences may not be as this further values the IFBB’s growing anti-doping policies. These new efforts have resulted in additional screenings at some international amateur events. For More Info:
