History – ANB
The Australasian Natural Bodybuilding Federation (ANB) was formed in 1983 by Robert Powell who was a young man who had a passion for all sports, especially sports that required strength training. In those days Robert owned supplement stores in Sydney where also Kevin Reilly worked as a distributor and today is ANB Vice President.
Now more than two and a half decades later with numerous world champions and Australian Champions, we have a firmly structured national organization involving hundreds of administrative members and literally tens of thousands of members. We continue to have sold out shows and with each competition the numbers of competitors continue to grow.
We have a firm and respected anti-drug policy by ASADA where with their support we will continue to support natural athletes as much as possible to give them an even playing field on stage.
ANB promoters and state representatives continue to hold competitions throughout Australia in every state.
ANB is very proud to announce that the UFE will now be our international affiliate internationally and shows will be co-sanctioned by ANB. Competitors in Australia may qualify for UFE Elite and PRO status through their events and UFE Professional and Elite Division competitors will be invited to compete at the ANB UFE World Titles held each year.
