WE ARE NOT ALONE IN FEDERATIONS STRUGGLING TO RETURN TO PRE 2019 STANDARDS.  THE QUALITY OF OUR COMPETITORS THROUGHOUT HAS SUFFERED, ESPECIALLY THE PROFESSIONALS.  BECAUSE OF THIS THE NABBA UK COMMITTEE DECIDED TO MAKE TEMPORARY CHANGES TO FIRST TRY AND ATTAIN OUR HISTORIC PRESTIGIOUS AMATEUR STATUS.  HOPEFULLY OUR COMMITTEE’S TEMPORARY DECISION FOR 2023 WILL ASSIST IN MAINTAINING OUR PROMINENT POSITION WITHIN PHYSICAL CULTURE COMPETITIONS IN THE FUTURE
