Rano: I will still run SBBF

In a statement released last Friday, the SSC said the SBBF failed to satisfactorily clarify issues of concern relating to doping. Speaking to The New Paper last night, Rano, who took charge of the SBBF in 2011, said he respects the decision and will not be appealing. « I will still run the SBBF, » he said. « I will quit only when the industry and athletes want me to. And right now, they don’t. » The SSC statement explained the main reasons for its decision, which concerned doping issues at last year’s national championships, de-affiliation by the Singapore National Olympic Council and other governance matters.

For some, this may have been true at one point in their lives, Yudin says. Some experienced bullying; others had acceptance issues. But most now have a healthy, even robust, sense of self-esteem. You can see it in how they carry themselves. They dont do this because of a lack of confidence, he says. If they did, they wouldnt be able to go on stage and be judged with such intense scrutiny on their physique. Theyve put in a lot of work and they know they look good.

Bodybuilding is unique because all that matters is how you look. It doesn’t matter what your arms measure, it doesn’t matter how much you can bench press. All that counts is how you look. Symmetry is perhaps the most important attribute of a winning bodybuilder.

He started his first magazine, Your Physique, in the early 1940s and with his younger brother Ben rented Montreal’s Monument National Theater to host the first Mr Canada contest during that same decade. The two brothers also founded the International Federation of Bodybuilders and in 1965 Weider created the Mr Olympia competition, the sport’s premiere bodybuilding contest. Weider met Schwarzenegger at a bodybuilding contest in Europe and convinced him to move from his native Austria to the United States to seek wider recognition. « He saw a lot in Arnold, » Parker said. « He felt that the sport needed a star and right away he could see that Arnold was something special. » Schwarzenegger, then nicknamed the « Austrian Oak, » first gained fame by winning a string of Mr Olympia titles in the early 1970s before going on to a successful career in such films as « The Terminator » and « Total Recall. » He was elected governor of California in 2003 and served two terms before retiring from politics. « Joe didn’t just inspire my earliest dreams; he made them come true the day he invited me to move to America to pursue my bodybuilding career, » Schwarzenegger, who visited Weider in the hospital before his death, said in the statement.
