There are many who talk about bringing a change and then there is a team who takes a step ahead and does it. IBFF India is one of those international federations which has underwent an office overhaul and appointment of new body brought loads of good news for the Indian fitness community and most importantly, competing bodybuilding and physique athletes.

As told to bodyandstrength.com team, the President of IBFF – Richard James said, “Looking at the condition of the athletes when they went outside to compete as part of the Indian team of the federation, I became concerned to bring a athlete-centric operating system into the bodybuilding show segments. Not in terms of just words but to take concrete step towards it.”

IBFF India Cup 2019 was held in The Lalit with summery sunlit morning to greet athletes and the audience. Every minute thing of athletes’ concern was taken into consideration while organizing this show. The weighing and waiting hall of the five star air-conditioned hotel venue was buzzing with energy since 9 o’clock in the morning. The highlight was the trophy of the All-Over winner! It is undoubtedly India’s tallest trophy customized with precision of quality. The medals were heavy and displayed the shimmering carving of Richard James’ image signifying that the sport is a forever passion and not limited to a particular age.

General Secretary Akshay Chopra who also runs an informative research based YouTube channel – We R Stupid said, “I saw that transgenders in India either competed with males or females depending upon their orientation and physical structure. Sometimes, despite being equally deserving because of the category differentiation, they were left behind. Hence, we decided to make them compete in a separate category of Trans Man. This will be a trendsetter and will bring sports’ maximum exposure and benefit to the transgender bodybuilding athletes.”

IBFF India Cup winners stand a chance to travel for international competitions for the federations this year. IBFF India will be taking a team of ace athletes from India to participate in international competitions and provide them an amicable competitive exposure at global level.
