Last Saturday Bangladesh Bodybuilding Federation officials confirmed about banning 23 years old bodybuilder Hasib Mohammad for taking part in a BBF unauthorized competition.

Hasib Mohammad claimed that he didn’t violate any rules but became a victim of ugly politics in this sports.

He said, ‘The federation didn’t issue any show-cause letter to me before taking such a decision. Considering my bright career I took part in the WFF affiliated competition which is totally different from the IFBB affiliated competition. I was the first man from our country who won a gold medal at the international arena”.

He also said, ‘Actually I became a victim of ugly sports politics. They did it because I am not only a bodybuilder but also a councilor of the federation. I have two votes in my hand and to ensure the votes from my associations they suspended me’.
