    Default WBFF Director's Rant - "Juiced up or Natural - A Moral Dilemma?"

    WBFF Director's Rant - "Juiced up or Natural - A Moral Dilemma?"
    by Daryl Gazey

    WBFF Director of Operations'


    First and foremost, I owe a great deal of gratitude to all those who took the time away from their oatmeal and egg whites to read my last, somewhat lengthy rant about the political side of competition. My goal is to shoot from the hip here, knowing all to well that the people in front of me may catch a bullet or two but those who stand behind me (the WBFF) may revel in my/our viewpoints. Where do I gather my material from you ask? In the past couple of decades or so, concerns from 'would-be' competitors, seasoned competitors, spectators, promotors and die hard fans of our industry have always arose and left me scratching my head. Once the splinters were delicately extracted, I would do my due diligence to find the answers sought and then 'delicately' provide what I felt was an honest answer. Now I know that when I use the word 'honesty', a few feathers will ruffle and more than a few eyebrows will perch. What the heck does this have to do with honesty? Hang fire...I'm getting to it.

    With the competitive fitness season finally upon us (dam you people who have year 'round sunshine!), questions and concerns are abounding. Valid questions that would apply to not only the WBFF but every organization's policies and procedures. I've responded ad nauseum to the "How come it's so expensive?" and the ever so popular "Is it drug tested?" inquiries. Hmmm...a couple of valid zingers huh? I'm sure more than a few contest promoters have wiped the sweat from their keyboards when responding to these requests.
    So....why are we gouging you and how come the lady standing next to you weighs 230 and has shredded glutes and a 3 o'clock shadow? Let's draw our proverbial gun and fire off the first shot.

    If they can't nail down the use/abuse/complement of performance enhancing substances in the Olympics (yes I'm referring to the 's' word), using stringent testing protocols and a hefty budget to do so, how the heck do you think "Bob's High School Auditorium Natural Bodybuilding, Figure and Rib Fest" is going to fare? Oh yes, but they do offer a 10 minute polygraph, a urinalysis, a signed consent form and they take a chunk of money from my entry form to do so. Hello? Any 9th grader who has access to the internet can fly past ANY and ALL of these doping control methods using the right strategy and informed choices. Is a 'natural' show natural? One could only hope that the appeal of a natural show is ONLY a reflection of the moral ethics of it's participants. That is the ONLY thing that will keep a natural show truly drug-free. But, in the spirit of competition, the smell of victory is all too strong for those athletes that want to 'win at all costs. What's next for those who 'gear up' to compete naturally? Perhaps claiming a disability to garnish a gold in the Special Olympics?

    It's inarguable that those who choose to compete with pharmaceutical assistance vs those who do not, poses a huge dilemma to any organization that presses for 'fairness and honesty' amongst its athletes. Does the WBFF drug test it's participants? In short..no we do not. Absurd right? Do we condone or advocate the involvement of anabolic agents or fat loss products. Well again, that doesn't matter if we do or we don't. I know (and you probably do as well) that people will ingest, inject, inhale, implant and for the most part, do what they feel is necessary to 'win at all costs'. With a team of lab coated, pharmacy gurus standing at stage right, Sylvia Brown the psychic in the audience and the FBI's team of polygraphy examiners in their midsts, does any show even have a shred of chance in advocating their natural status.

    Are we hippocrits? Some may think so but I like to see us as realists. It serves little purpose to run a drug tested show when all of us who are 'in the know' realize this to be an ineffective and moot tactic. So whether you opt for good ole' fashioned creatine or some esoteric doctrine of sports medicine, chance are we're not necessarily going to know. I'll humble myself in stating that it's safe to assume that most high caliber athletes are using 'something' to better themselves and really it boils down to a matter of personal choice and that has nothing to do with whether a show is 'drug free' or not... Competition, as the name implies, is just that. Who is better than whom. Personally, I'd rather stand on stage knowing that the odds are fairly high that the guys standing next to me are anabolically-equipped rather than enter a so-called natural show where the chips are going to fall where they may.

    In summation, it took 0.15 seconds for google to return 138,000 responses on 'how to pass a steroid test'

    I'll let you be the judge the next time you're paying for a drug testing fee.

    Join me on my next rant from the fitness soap box when I delve into "I look great, so now what??"


    Good luck in competition and in being the best you possible.

    In good health,

    Daryl Gazey

    Who Can compete at the WBFF World Championship?

    Q. Who is eligible to compete at the WBFF World Championships in Toronto September 19,2009?

    A. ALL athletes, regardless of prior competition experience or affiliation with other organizations are permitted to compete at the WBFF World Championships in Toronto as it is being classified as both a National event AND Pro Event. The WBFF Pro Divisions will debut at the World Championships, but will be separated from the open divisions. As always, this event is open to first time competitors and seasoned competitors.

    Q. How many opportunities do I have to turn pro prior to the World Championships?

    A. There will be one additional Pro Qualifying event at the WBFF Calgary Championships on July 4th, 2009. Applications will still be accepted by nationally ranked athletes from accredited organizations in good standing with the WBFF. Once a pool of qualified pro athletes is attained, WBFF Pro Cards will only be granted at the World Championship event and designated pro qualifying events.


    Q. Is there a signficant difference between a WBFF Pro and an amateur?

    A. The WBFF Pros, as with all professional athletes, will receive a distinction that is inclusive of cash prizes, industry related contract endorsements, exclusive marketing features through the WBFF and sponsors and featured placement in national and international fitness publications. In addition, WBFF Pros will have their own exclusive online presence on the WBFF website to market themselves . WBFF forms partnerships with their pro athletes to assist in promoting and supporting their fitness efforts.


    Q. Will you be adding any more events in the future?

    A. The WBFF will be adding Montreal, Canada to our list of events for the 2010 competition season. This will be in addition to our regional events in Vancouver, Calgary and the WBFF World Championships once again in Toronto. We do have prospects of adding the U.S. and other worldwide events in the future.


    Q. When is the best time to register for any of the upcoming WBFF shows?

    A. Keep in mind that due to the increasing popularity of the events, limitations may be placed on some divisions due to time constraints and as a result, may have to be capped prior to the event. It's always wise to register as soon as possible to ensure your opportunity to compete.


    Q. I really want to compete with the WBFF but I don't want to lose standing with my organization.

    A. Court decisions are supportive in stating that amateur athletes can not be banned from competing with any organization so long as they're not receiving monetary retribution (cash) from the organization by way of a contractual agreement. What this means in short is that you're free to compete where you want, with who you want, as often as you want and most importantly, with the organization that best suits your competitive goals.

    Default THE 2009 WBFF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP SEPT 19TH

    Default

    Thanks to all for sharing our Newsletter!
    The WBFF supports ALL bodybuilding and fitness organizations and highly encourage athletes to compete as much, as often and as frequently as they're able to with any organization...the reason being, that bodybuilding/fitness in of itself, is NOT a lucrative sport. Yes I feel that a handful of individuals can make a substantial living as a result of their bodybuilding efforts and related endeavors but if we search the history of Canadian Federations vs their pros who have attained exemplary benefits, it's rather disappointing to say the least. Correct me if I'm overlooking anyone, but Dillett was one of the very few individuals to state claim to a six figure contract of any Canadian pros in the history of the sport. This isn't meant to bash any of the very talented Canadian pros in our ranks but merely to draw reference to fact.
    Now if this is something that MUST change, then I don't know what is!

    Rather than getting into little pissy-fit arguments about who's plugging themselves with sustanon or who's gargling with wheat grass, let's remind ourselves that our common objective is to exemplify our sport AND increase market appeal. With market appeal comes more competitors and thus more sponsors. With more sponsors comes better prizes and opportunities. The ball continues to roll and so on, so forth.... Why do pro athletes in ANY other sport make exorbitant incomes? The answer is simple....because they can!

    Our effort is to change this and as you can see from our list of reputable sponsors (GNC, EAS, Budweiser, etc.) we are doing this and doing this well AND quickly. Is this worthy of negative criticism? More like the left foot kicking the right foot for what it's worth and then bitching when you can't walk properly.

    Let's all take a deep breath and get the 'haters' away from the table for a second and realize that this IS a collaborative effort from ALL who love the sport for what it is. If not, we'll only bask in the limelight of a few...

    The WBFF does not condone drug use and has never pointed the finger of blame at ANY athlete and the absence of testing is NOT a stance of promotion, merely an admission of what we need to realize. Testing is inadequate. Plain and simple. Love us or leave us.... For those who love us, we'll do our best and be honest and within approach. For those who don't, we also commend your decision and wish you the best in what you do; wherever you may choose to do it.

    Default THE WBFF - The Way I See It

    There has recently been some unnecessary tension in our industry that needs to be addressed. In my decades of involvement in the fitness industry, I can assure you that I've seen my share of unjust behavior, opinions flying about (good and bad) and a great deal of subjectivity. One thing that I'm confident about is the knowledge that we're all in this together; regardless of your affiliation, your goals or your personal beliefs. Our objective is to further the sport of bodybuilding and fitness and reap as many rewards that it has to offer.

    The place to air any indiscretion is not by firing it from a cannon in hopes that everyone will hear it and respond favorably. As some of you may see, this hasn't been the case recently with certain posts that have been circulating.

    We, the WBFF, owe our support and gratitude to those who support our endeavors and who choose to travel on the same road that we share. In order for the fitness industry to continue to expand its horizons, this mentality should be maintained across the board. To engage in trivial bantering is counterproductive, belittling and unprofessional to say the least and only serves to harm those individuals of whom it is our intended goal of helping...the athletes.

    I have faith in the WBFF brand and I have faith in the WBFF Team. We owe our present and continuing success not to one person but to every one of us; the athletes, the sponsors, the spectators, photographers, media and staff. We are not in this alone. I firmly believe that to be successful, you have to share in the success of others.

    Having said this, I will continue to support other fitness and bodybuilding organizations that share our direction, that actively promote their participants and whose aim it is to raise the bar as we feel we are doing. Many of you have come to realize that I attend many of these fitness events with the UFE, IDFA, NPC, OPA and IFBB. I am and always will be an athlete first and a businessman second with my primary objective to give back to a sport that has given me the opportunities that I'm now able to share. I have experienced success and now my goal is to share this with as many people as I can and do the best job I'm able to in order to effect this. Once again, I am confident that I will continue with this success.

    If you approve of what we're doing, we acknowledge this. If you disapprove of our intentions, we also want to hear your suggestions; good, bad or otherwise. We are still in our infancy and we realize that we are fallible to making mistakes and are aware that we will never be the only 'kid on the block'.

    We see competition and the existence of other federations as a necessary element that will serve to keep us on our toes and continue to make the necessary adjustments to achieve those goals. We will never take for granted, or be too big for our britches to realize that we can be boastful, discriminate or unworthy.

    We appreciate all of the positive feedback that we have recently received. I am thankful for what we do, who we are and what we share.

    I will continue to deliver the best that I'm able to and once again thank you for your generosity. I look forward to seeing everyone in Calgary and then in September for our World Championships. You won't be disappointed.
