At last evenings meeting held by the ANB Executive, a unanimous decision was made to the UFE World Championship Qualification criteria.
To assist all athletes & alleviate athlete stress with planning (time away from work / tertiary education, flights, accommodation, passport, etc.), any athlete who competes at the ANB Australian Championship will now qualify to compete at the UFE World Championship. This will apply yearly with the exemptions remaining as per previous & below.
Below is the amended qualification.
All shows except for the ANB Australian Championship;
Overall winners (Figure, Physique & Bodybuilding) qualify to compete in the UFE World Championship Elite division.
Swimsuit Model, Fitness Model, Muscle Model division winners qualify to compete in the UFE World Championship Elite Division
All other qualification is via the ANB Australian Championship (listed below).
Athletes, who choose to compete at the annual ANB Australian Championship must qualify by competing via their respective State Championship.
NSW athletes are exempt from pre qualification via State Championship (no NSW State Championship) as Australian Championship are held in NSW & therefore eligible to enter directly into the Australian Championship.
