Bodybuilding Professors Outmuscle the Stereotype

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.

The significance of getting recognised by SASCOC is massive for the sport of bodybuilding and fitness in South Africa, stated an elated Conlon this weekend after attending South Africas Olympic governing body SASCOCs AGM. Our dedicated athletes and officials will now receive provincial as well as national colours in bodybuilding, Conlon said. We will now be able to take a South African Bodybuilding Team to compete internationally where they will wear the Protea emblem and uniform. We will fly the South African flag high with pride and bring home medals for our country. Being officially affiliated with the IFBB will be a huge benefit for Bodybuilding South Africa. The IFBB boasts an impressive 182 affiliated National Federations, is recognised by over 90 international Olympic Committees and hosts over 2 500 competitions across the globe annually. Bodybuilding is also expected to become an Olympic sport in the near future. Conlon also sees this as a great opportunity by using the recognition to educate people and grow the sport of bodybuilding locally: We will now be eligible for funding which we will use for development, youth and club programmes as well as schooling initiatives and in helping previously disadvantaged clubs to grow.
