THE 2014 EUROPEAN BODYBUILDING CHAMPIONSHIPS OVERALL WINNERS

The first day of the 2014 European Bodybuilding and Fitness Championships was the men’s day: medal were distributed in all Classic Bodybuilding and Bodybuilding categories.
Five Classic Bodybuilding champions came from five different countries: Georgia, Spain, Lithuania, Russia and Czech Republic, but the most prestigious overall title went to the a new Lithuanian star Tomas BENDORAITIS.
The most sensational winner is Irakli Gagua from Georgia, who won the first historical bodybuilding gold medal for his country. Georgia had been the IFBB “dead” member for many years but now returns in a great style.
All five 2014 Classic Bodybuilding champions are new and most of them came to the continental championships for the first time. It means that new competitors with great predisposition are still coming to our sports and they are so good that can successfully challenge “old” champions. The overall battle was a close duel between Tomas Bendoraitis and new Russian star Alexander Kuschuk, who – in some way – resembles famous bodybuilding champion from the 1960s Dave Draper, also from his face. Is he a new “Blond Bomber”?
Their tough battle has brought the result 8:10 for Bendoraitis.
In Men’s Bodybuilding two gold medals went to Ukraine and two – to Poland. In 70 kg class interesting situation: 2013 European champion Miroslav Skadra (Slovakia) came to regain the title but had fight against the 2013 European champion in… classic bodybuilding: Teymur Aslanov (Azerbaijan) and 2013 bronze medal winner Roman Iushchenko (Ukraine). This time the Ukrainian emerged as a winner.
The second “gold” for Ukraine came in the heaviest category, over 100 kg, where two newcomers at this level: Arthur Kovalov (Ukraine) and Michael Muzo (Netherlands) placed ahead of the former European champion Mikhail Sidorychev (Russia).
2013 runner-up Danijel Miklecic (Croatia) progressed a lot in the past year and moved up to the 1st position in 75 kg category, leaving behind Antonio Muriana of Germany.
The 80 kg class went to the 2011 Mediterranean champion Simone Schirilo, who outpointed two Russians: 2012 runner-up Aleksey Denisov and 2012 champion (in 75 kg class) Sergey Moskvin.
85 kg category was the battle of the gifted Spanish athlete Raul Gutierrez against two Polish stars: former world top classic bodybuilder Mariusz Balazinski and Krzysztof Skryplonek. The Spanyard won all three rounds, so the discussion is not necessary. For Balazinski it means a successful and quick transformation from classic bodybuilder to the impressive traditional bodybuilder.
90 kg class had three favourites: former European champion Vugar Verdiyev (Azerbaijan), former runner-up Ott Kiivikas (Estonia) and former European junior champion Szymon Lada (Poland). And this youngest star emerged as a winner from this tough battle against the matured champions but later on he also won the overall title, so proved that his talent has been properly developing and progressing.
Recently introduced 95 kg category was fortunate for the next Pole: 2012 bronze medal winner Tomasz Pabiniak, but after a very tough battle against Bouhlal Chakib (Italy) and the competitor with the biggest quadriceps Peter Kovac (Slovakia). The results of the first round was: 1113, the third round: 1111.
Miha Zupan of Slovenia won the silver (2012) and bronze 2013) medals, so was interested in the gold one this tome. Mission accomplished! Neither Przemyslav Owczarek of Poland nor Victor De Gusatin could could do any damage to him. Last year’s champion Reza Zinatlov (Azerbaijan) dropped to the 4th place.
The overall battle was Szymon Lada vs. Miha Zupan, with slight victory of Lada, whose bodylines and muscle quality looked perfect.
42 countries entered their competitors to the European Bodybuilding Championships, what is a new record of participation.
The Championships are run in the well-known, hospitable and spacious Parc Colomer Sport Center in Santa Susanna, which has been perfectly prepared to this event, thanks to the experienced team of organizers from the Spanish Federation. This was a “prelude” before the next coming days, when the stage will belong to juniors and masters (Friday and Saturday) as well as to charming women (Sunday). Stay tuned!
