Welcome WNBF Sri Lanka
Please send a warm welcome to WNBF Sri Lanka President Lahiru Wamaka Gammudali (Wamaka Alex) and the WNBF Sri Lanka organization. WNBF Sri Lanka was founded on April 5, 2022 in the city of Bauddhaloka Mawatha, Colombo, Sri Lanka.
A message from the President;
I am honored to be a part of the WNBF and amongst it’s international affiliates which make the WNBF what it is worldwide. I look forward to doing my very best to represent the federation and Natural Bodybuilding in Sri Lanka, and to grow this sport in a natural way.
My goals are to help athletes in natural bodybuilding achieve international success beyond the national level. I also hope that the future of this conference will see the realization of the right path and the ability to get out of the terrible fate of using banned substances and move forward in a drug free way. This is a challenge here especially when coaches are cooperating using steroids and pushing them onto their clients or onto people in the gym. It is hard to see the choices that these people make in sport and to also see the drugs that are being used effect a persons health, their entire life.
In Sri Lanka, there has never been competitions in the field of drug tested bodybuilding. My opinion is that the use of banned substances is at the discretion of the athlete. But there should be tournaments relevant to each player. That is to say, the division between Natural bodybuilding Competitions and other bodybuilding competitions justifies its relevance to athletes. I am excited to host natural competitions for the athletes living in and around Sri Lanka.
Of course, I must thank Mr. Bob Bell and Mrs. Tina Smith for connecting Sri Lanka to the WNBF conference and appointing me as its President. This is a huge turning point in the game for humanity. Thank You!
