Il ritiro del Presidente IFBB Ben Weider ed il suo successore al comando del Mr.Olympia (quasi…)

Come già vi avevo annunciato in questo post, Ben Weider si ritira dalla carica di Presidente IFBB dopo 60 anni.
L’annuncio è avvenuto il 29 Ottobre 2006 in Repubblica Ceca.
Il suo successore sarà (è) il Dottor Rafael Santonja di Madrid, Spagna. Rafael ha lavorato accanto a Ben dal 1985, girando il mondo assieme a lui e sembra la persona più indicata, anche perchè è stato scelto all’unanimità dal Congresso.
La prima cosa che Santonja ha fatto è stato nominare Ben Weider come Presidente Onorario a vita, azione approvata dal Congresso con un’ovazione.

L’articolo completo, apparso sul sito, è riportato di seguito:

    Another thing I have noticed is that for many people, a bad credit score is the result of circumstances further than their control.
    For example they may are already saddled through an illness and because of this they have large bills for collections.
    It may be due to a job loss and the inability to do the job.
    Sometimes divorce can send the finances in the undesired direction.
    Thanks sharing your thinking on this blog site.

    me on Opera. Superb Blog!

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you
    could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
