Weider Inspection Report (Information Package)

We are thrilled and excited to announce the largest amateur show in Canada!

The Ben Weider Legacy Cup will be held in Edmonton, Alberta on September 10, 2016 at the Ramada Edmonton Hotel & Conference Centre 11834 Kingsway Avenue, Edmonton. This is first annual show and is open to an International field of Amateur Competitors from across North America.

Canadian Brothers Joe and Ben Weider founded the IFBB in 1946. Joe became a publisher and trainer of the champions, while his brother Ben made the IFBB World Wide Sports Organization.

We are proud to keep up the Ben Weider Legacy by organizing a new competition concept under his name. The Ben Weider Legacy Cup was created by the IFBB President Dr. Raphael Santonja.

The Ben Weider Legacy Cup is an IFBB Sanctioned Competition and the overall winners will receive their Pro Cards.

The following are the selected classes for the competition:
Men’s bodybuilding
Classic men’s bodybuilding (no pro card but a qualification to an elite European competition)
Men’s Physique
Women’s physique

Category Crossovers (Bodybuilding/Classic)

We have recently discussed the parameters around some of the classes and one item that came up was crossovers between the new classic physique class and open bodybuilding and “Will the CBBF allow athletes to cross over between the two classes?”.

In the past we did not have consistency on this rule as we did allow classic bodybuilding and open bodybuilding athletes to cross over between the disciplines at the IFBB event qualifier. Effective immediately and including the 2016 events we will not allow crossovers at any of the CBBF National events including the IFBB event qualifier.

One of the most compelling reasons is athlete ability to have an opportunity to become a part of the World Team. With allowing crossovers in past we have had cases where the same athlete wins both disciplines and if for some reason, such as in 2014 when such winner was disqualified, it did not allow an athlete from either discipline to participate on Team Canada.
