Uppdatering 15 september: Efter invägningen:

Official list of the competitors.

The registration and weigh-in of the nearly 350 competitors ended close to the midnight and… still few athletes were missing since the snow falls paralyzed a couple of airports in South Europe and they were awaiting their flights at the airports. The next time Iranian athletes had problems to obtain visas and only their President Omid Amiri came to Budapest, without his athletes. 

The weigh-in showed us a full spectrum of our bodybuilding world, from 14 years old children fitness star Vanessa Lisziova (who was not allowed to compete, as 16 years is the limit for women’s championships) up to over 65 masters, maybe even more happy from competing than the younger athletes. We saw beautiful, fresh junior fitness, bodyfitness and bikini fitness girls, as well as matured but not less attractive masters bodyfitness women. All of them show the beauty of the human body, if properly trained and dieting. 

Awaiting for the beginning of semifinals, look at a couple of pictures from the weigh-in:

Upppdatering 14 december: Det preliminära schemat är klart:

Finally, we can provide you with the general schedule of activity, what is an important information for competitors, judges, officials, media and fans. Also the detailed program, round by round, is ready but we need to wait for the weigh-in to see if further changes will be necessary.

The Organizing Committee of the Hungarian Bodybuilding & Fitness Federation extends a warm welcome to all IFBB National Federations to participate in the IFBB Amateur World Junior & Masters Bodybuilding, Classic Bodybuilding, Fitness, Bodyfitness, Bikini Championships in Budapest, Hungary, December 14 – December 17, 2012.

From January 1st, 2012, there are two Master Women’s Bodyfitness age categories: from 35 to 44 age old and over 45 years old. Year of birth decides.

The phrase „Central European” is not nearly a geographical definition; it refers to the fact that the Hungarian capital, Budapest, is more than just a capital of a small country with 10.5 million inhabitants. It is also the product of a larger area, of a particular European region: Central Europe. Located in central Europe’s Carpatian basin, Hungary has been the link in the chain connecting east and west for thousands of years. 

Budapest is the „City of Festivals”; several major cultural events are held in and around the city every year. There are over 90 major museums in the region; local history collections, regional architecture and small village museums provide additional perspectives on civilization in the area. 

Budapest is visited by 40 million tourists per year.
