IPF and IFBB...a perfect match....thank GOD we are WPC!...no reason to lie!

"Another meeting took place on the booth of the IFBB. The IPF delegates could arrange an agreement with the IFBB in reference to the Arnold's Europe and the Arnold's in general. The IPF will be the ONLY powerlifting federation, who will be present at the Arnold's Europe, South America and the original Arnold's in Columbus/Ohio. As the IFBB will expand this event also to Asia, Africa and Australia, the IFBB President Mr. Rafael Santonja guaranteed that only the IPF will be present at the powerlifting events on all Arnold's around the world."..IPF home page

"The International Federation of BodyBuilding and Fitness (IFBB) is a founding member of the International World Games Association (IWGA) and the sport featured on all eight editions of The World Games staged until now. After violations against the IWGA Anti-Doping Rules committed by athletes in the contingent of the IFBB during the games in 2009 Kaohsiung, the executive board decided to suspend sport from participating in The World Games 2013 Cali. The 2010 General Assembly ratified the board's decision and a challenge brought before the Court of Arbitration in Sports was denied. The IFBB is now challenged to improve further on its Anti-Doping practices in order to have the sport reinstated for future editions."..
