Pakistan Observer - - SPORTS -

IS­LAM­ABAD—Pak­istan Body­build­ing Fed­er­a­tion (PBF) has given dead­line of one last month (June) to the clubs for sub­mis­sion of af­fi­davits to the fed­er­a­tion men­tion­ing that they won’t be us­ing any il­le­gal sub­stance for rapid muscle-build­ing of the body­builders.

Talk­ing to APP, Sheikh Fa­rooq Iqbal, Pres­i­dent PBF, said from July 1 the dead­line will be over for the clubs. “Those clubs who will not sub­mit the af­fi­davits will be shut­down or banned,” he said.

It may be men­tioned that four na­tional body­builders had passed away this year in­clud­ing Mat­loob Haider, Muham­mad Rizwan, Hu­mayun Khur­ram (Mr Lahore, Mr Pun­jab, Mr Pak­istan and South Asian Body­build­ing Cham­pi­onship 2016 gold medal­ist) and Hamid Ali (Ex-Mr Pun­jab).

Af­ter that the PBF can­celled the reg­is­tra­tion of all body­build­ing clubs.

The Fed­er­a­tion made it manda­tory for the clubs to sub­mit an af­fi­davit to the fed­er­a­tion men­tion­ing that they would not be us­ing any il­le­gal sub­stance for rapid muscle-build­ing.

He said, “Af­ter the clubs sub­mit af­fi­davits to us we will send a list of them to the Pak­istan Sports Board (PSB).

Sheikh said to make it fool­proof to pre­vent body­builders from us­ing steroids or any il­le­gal sub­stance for growing their mus­cles.—APP
