There are some 100 participants from 20 countries participate this special event. We have recognised guest speakers, including Mr Pawel Filleborn, Vice President of Poland European Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation, and Mr Tony Blinn, Secretary to the IFBB Technical Committee of International Federation of Bodybuilding & Fitness talked about the interesting bodybuilding techniques and rules. We are confident that all participants will be able to understand judging system, as well as technical systems, final points on judging and the latest systems, which all will be computerised allowing the public to see on the screen.
