Bodybuilding athletes can still participate in regional and international competitions through their respective sports clubs that are affiliated to the regional and international federations.
SINGAPORE: The Singapore Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation (SBBF) status as a National Sports Association (NSA) was revoked recently due to a series of administrative lapses and doping infractions.
But bodybuilding athletes can still participate in regional and international competitions through their respective sports clubs that are affiliated to the regional and international federations.
Acting Minister for Community, Culture and Youth, Lawrence Wong was replying to a question in Parliament from MP for Marine Parade GRC Fatimah Lateef.
He said for those selected by the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) for games like the Southeast Asia and Asian Games, the council will directly oversee their training and preparations.
The Singapore Sports Council and SNOC are also in discussion with parties who have the potential to represent the interest of the sport in Singapore.
Once the new NSA is formed, SSC will work with it to develop the sport and support the athletes.
