ASF continues downsizing the bodybuilding and fitness divisions. In previous years we have seen removal of Pro Figure, Women’s Physique and Female Bodybuilding to now completely removing amateur NPC event.

The likes of amateur Wheelchair Division has only just been announced on 26th October 2022 – this has to be devastating news for athletes who made arrangements to compete at the event.

Remaining Pro divisions that will still take place are:
Men’s Open Bodybuilding
Classic Physique
Men’s Physique
Pro Wheelchair

All of the UK fans must remember what happened back in September.

ASF did not announced this via any of their social channels – only note at the website and assuming emails to those registered.
