British Physique Alliance offers some reassurance to athletes of folded federation

THE British Physique Alliance (BPA) are in talks to save some of the shows from the Global Bodybuilding Alliance (GBA).

Helen O'Reilly, president of the BPA and Gladiator Panther from the original TV series, confirmed she is in talks to save at least two GBA shows.

The GBA folded this month saying they were "unable to meet their high standards under the current circumstances".

The BPA are in talks to save the GBA's Wolverhampton show, the Battle of the Midlands, scheduled for August 18. They have also reached out to Matt Adams, who was co-president of the GBA, to take on the Gainz Battle of Bedford, which was due to take place on July 14.

The collaboration with the Dr Vic Super Show on October 25 and 26 is still scheduled to go ahead.

The BPA have also confirmed they will honour any invitations to the British Finals which were secured at the GBA's only show this season, the Canarian Classic.

O'Reilly is away on business but is hoping to finalise a new venue for the Wolverhampton show on her return.

As reported by frontdouble.com on Sunday, the GBA said in a letter to athletes: "After careful consideration and extensive efforts, we have come to the difficult decision to cancel this year’s shows.

"This decision was not made lightly. It is rooted in our commitment to uphold the high standards and values that GBA stands for. Unfortunately, we have found that we are unable to meet these standards under the current circumstances."

The BPA are also expected to announce some significant news of their own in the coming days.
